There are so many “commentators” and “personalities” that there is hardly room for anyone else to join the fray. Yet, here I am adding my two cents to the mix of bloggers and self-proclaimed journalists. Since I last spent any discernable amount of time writing or commenting, a great deal has transpired.
My last commentary stopped somewhere just after Donald Trump won the Republican nomination to become our next President. I admit I was shell shocked, disillusioned and disgusted with all things political. I neither voted for Trump nor Hillary to become our next president and admit I searched frantically….even prayerfully for a selection on my ballot that said, “Do over.” To my chagrin, no such column existed on the ballot. I was forced to vote my protest (not my conscience as that would have been “do over”) I voted for a guy out of Utah….a long shot not even a contender but I felt better having not voted for either party choice.
Anyway, since then you all know Trump won the election…well, everyone except Hillary knows. She still seems to be scrambling around the country searching for anyone who will listen to how it was stolen from her. You know, by the Russians or the Ukrainians or possibly by the aliens being secretly held at Area 51. She went so far as to attempt a whirlwind tour of the US alongside her much more popular husband and former “actual” President, Bill Clinton. I’m not sure it should be called a tour anymore as I believe at the first stop they were paying people to attend and by the last stop people weren’t even willing to be paid to attend.
As I famously predicted, Trump would be the worst thing to happen to the GOP since the Whigs went down in flames…like Michael Jackson’s hair in that commercial with fireworks. Just kidding, (not about what I predicted…I did say that) but I was absolutely mistaken…wrong in every instance. The GOP is still standing albeit with a few outliers like Mark Stanford declaring the old guard will “Rise Again!” The nation is not in danger of collapse from disastrous policies instituted by an egomaniac whose narcissism is only “trumped” by the likes of former president Barack Obama. (Or his wife Michelle.)
Au contraire, the economy is humming along despite the naysayers in the press or as it is better known these days, the Democrat Party. Unemployment is down in every category and in several it’s down by historical numbers. Blacks, women and Hispanics are fairing especially well under the current administration. Despite these facts, men like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are desperately trying to convince all those employed people that they are in fact, slaves to the state…or the privileged white majority or some such rubbish.
Speaking of “privilege” that is a word now synonymous with white people. Yes, if you were born with a light skin pigment you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth. Now, up in the Appalachian Mountains it might have been a silver colored plastic spoon with nothing on it to eat…but I digress. We white folks are privileged and if we don’t recognize our privilege then it’s because we aren’t compassionate enough to see the poor minorities who are underprivileged. Sure, you may be called white trash but that’s still a privilege as minorities never get called white anything.
Why I remember a time when our home was being foreclosed on and my parents said, “Thank goodness we still have our white privilege” that will sure put food on the table! It sure did put a lot of “beans and rice and rice and beans” on the table. Still, we were privileged because you can’t lose everything you have if you never had anything to lose or something like that…excuse me while I go flagellate myself.
While we are on the subject of words that make no sense, in the context it’s being used today…the word “Racist” has met a terrible fate. It has been hijacked by the loony left and is being held prisoner until someone finds a reason to impeach President Trump. Any reason will do…no really, Russian collusion, Biden collusion with Ukraine, Hillary’s delusion, women’s vaginas…worn ostensibly on their heads now…in case they forgot where they put them I guess. (Side bar…I always thought feminists complained that men only thought with their private parts as that’s where their brains are…and here women claiming to be feminists are putting their private parts on their heads like giant pink brains or something,)
So, the moral of this post is that not much has happened I once predicted and I’m very glad. I was rather somber at seeing Trump become our President but maybe it was time for a back-yard brawler to take the office. Who better to clean out the swamp than a man who has spent a great deal of time in dark places doing things despicable? Things other privileged white people hide from the public by ensuring anyone who knows their secrets has a lethal case of suicide. Trump may have the grace of a bully in a China shop but he is truly a cunning fox. I must admit I’ve enjoyed watching him ruffle the feathers of all those chickens in the EU hen house!
Not that you asked or even care but I do intend to vote for Trump in the next Presidential election. Better to dance with the Devil I know than dance with any of those devils from the Democrat Party…they are certifiably insane…even Satan would not let them in for fear they’d institute Democratic Socialism! Oh and as for the GOP contender, Mark Sanford, aka former Governor of South Carolina…well, I’d just be worried he might get lost on the Appalachian trail again looking for his soul.
