First, for Bacall and I, our daughter and our three grandkids, 2017 is looking a lot brighter than the last 8 years. We are hopeful. Giving people the rhetoric of hope, lifting them with mere words, is just not the same as delivering results. We are hopeful Trump will find the Reset button and reverse the myriad of stifling regulations made in the last 8 years. We are hopeful Congress will wake up and do their job and we can return to The Rule Of Law.
Erica recently posted some of the usual pedestrian progressive vitriol lightly veiled in humor taking me to task for my remarks suggesting she cut out her whining over Trump. Going back a few weeks, I said what I wanted to say then removed the posts after a week or so. She could not leave it alone. I will not get in the gutter with her. It’s senseless. It’s like playing chess with a pigeon. She is not going to change her mind. Sir Francis Bacon wrote many years ago: “People prefer to believe what they prefer to be true.” All the facts in the world will not dissuade some people from a fixed belief. She and her friends will rail against anyone not of their faith. It’s not Trump, it’s anyone that is not liberal.
I must say that her incest suggestions are particularly egregious. That’s really getting in the gutter.
It’s not her fault. She came to her liberal orthodoxy from her parents and their friends. I call it environment liberalism. I got my conservation foundation from my father, a small businessman, one who signed paychecks. She grew up the entertainment world, which has always been populated by the progressives. SoCal is not known as La La Land for no reason. Her father could have been an academic or in civil service, two other fields where dissenting views, no matter how well reasoned or empirical, are not welcome. They live in a fantasy world.
To all the buttercups, snowflakes, etc. I know you will do your best to make life disagreeable for those of my faith. If you must screw your face into a scowl for the next four years and be mean, petty and abusive, well nothing I can do about it. Let’s all have a good thought that Erica will not turn her pretty face into something like this.
Signed Profoundly Deplorable
It’s been over a week since I wrote this and hate is flowing like molten lava.
The left is trying to turn the whole country into a liberal safe space — safe for them, dangerous for anyone who disagrees with them. Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
