Since I retired for good on December 10. 2010 (a day that will definitely live in my infamy!), I have a lot of things that go on in my head, but not a lot of folks to share them with and exchange info and ideas and such. And yes, I have WAY too much time on my hands! This happens when you retire at the tender age of 50- and not because you want to…. but that’s another story. Anyway, I just want to kick things off to see if anybody is listening and would like to participate or just drop by when you get bored (in case you have too much time on your hands, too!). Regardless, I hope you enjoy it.
So to get the ball rolling… my rant of the day is about something I read in an old Life magazine (you can look up ANY past issue of Life magazine from issue one onward here: https://books.google.com/books/about/LIFE.html?id=N0EEAAAAMBAJ) from November 1972. It had an interview with poor George McGovern after loosing to Nixon (which we all now know was indeed a “crook”) which the reporter said was given right after he figured-out he needed to start writing a concession speech ASAP because all was lost. The reporter asked him why he thought he lost so badly. McGovern simply replied that Nixon was a master at hitting all the “hot buttons” of people- hate, fear, and anger. It impressed me because after watching the Republicscum debates so far, that’s all these asswipes are saying…. hate, fear, and anger. And I don’t think they are going to discuss anything else that matters, such as the economy, the future for our kids and grandkids, helping disabled veterans more and hassle them less, etc. And I don’t think they’re going to discuss anything else in the future, either.
Except, of course, their hatred, anger, and mostly FEAR of Hillary Clinton….
I don’t know at this point if Hillary is “the answer” for 2016, but I know it’s none of those people who when asked what the solution to the ISIS problem is to (quoting Lindseed Graham here) “Kill them- just kill them all!”. Well, Mien Furher, the last person that said “Kill them- just kill them all!” was one Adolph Hitler regarding the Jews, Russians, Poles, and anybody else he felt was inferior. Because if this is truly the Republicscum Party’s position of this is- to “kill them- just kill them all!”, then we need to fire-up the ovens and open the showers, because that’s the only way you’re going to be able to kill them all- you will have to kill the women and children, too, because they are ISIS members, too, by affiliation.
OK, that’s today’s rant. Opposing opinions are welcome here on this blog, but only ONE RULE I must insist upon… ANY QUOTES MUST BE FACTUAL AND VERIFIYABLE TO EVERYONE. Deal?
OK, world…. let this gimpy liberal have it!!!!!
