The only thing I'll ever ask of you...


...you've got to promise not to stop when I say "when"...

I've been a Foo Fighters fan for a long time.  If I could spend an afternoon and evening and into the early morning hours drinking and eating pub grub in a dive bar with a currently active band, it would be Foo.

There is so much going on out there today that it makes my head hurt.  

The folks on the Left have raised their voices and bullied anyone and everyone who didn't agree with them into submission. It started with Bush II.  They hated him.  

Then with obama.  If you disagreed with obama or anyone who supported him, you were a racist.  If you disagreed with, or even simply questioned the policies of the Left you were a homophobe.  Or a xenophobe.  Or any of a multitude of -phobes.  A lower form of life.  You were intolerant.  You were unable to empathize.  You were just stupid.  And the folks who were suffering the bullying of the Left basically did so in silence.  Because it was a waste of breath to try to defend yourself against their bullying.   

Fuck obama.  Feels good to say that.  Fuck obama.

Then Trump.  The election of President Trump, based on the promise of "draining the swamp", made Leftist heads explode.  The election of President Trump, the defeat of Hillary Clinton, put a stop to the Progressive freight train that the Left was riding.  And it scared the fuck out of politicians on both sides of the swamp.  Resistance, formal resistance to the Trump Presidency started on election night, 2016.  Nancy Pelosi mentioned impeachment that night when asked how the congress would deal with President Trump (if they couldn't control him).  There was a formal, concerted effort to prevent Trump from carrying out the duties of his office from the first day.  Investigation after investigation after investigation... You know the story.  Freshman Congressman Rashida Tlaib infamously stated just after she was sworn in as a congressman from Michigan that "we'll impeach the mother fucker".  

The Progressives spent 4 years trying to stop Trump.  They tried to disrupt the government of the United States.  To stop it in its tracks.  And the 50% of the American electorate who voted for him?  What those 50% wanted no longer mattered.  That was pretty fucked up.  And they are emboldened, having "won" the most recent election.  They are dangerous.

And for 4 years President Trump was tRump or Drumpf or dRump or any of a thousand derogatory terms.  And his supporters? Trumpsters, Trumpites, Trumpettes, Trumpetters, Trumpkins, Trumpanzees...

"Breathe out, so I can breathe you in..."

The Left doesn't care about the Right.  They live in a place that only exists in their minds.  And if you aren't with them you are against them.  And if you are against them, you will be dealt with severely.

For a while I had hoped that my Conservative friends wouldn't stoop to the depths that my Liberal friends have actively and purposefully stooped to these past 20 odd years.  I hoped they would be the mature ones, the adults in the room, and get back to creating an undivided America.  

Then Biden said "It's a time to put aside our differences and unite".

Fuck you, Joe Biden.

"Are you ready? Lets fucking go..."  ~~Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters

Excellent summary of what Pres Trump had to deal with, and an excellent view of what the near future will be. Left, Right, Center, none of the "elected officials" have cared about anything for the last 30 plus years except their ability to project their influence in a thousand ways, on the people who did and didn't vote for them, because they could.

Well, a lot of us have been watching and remembering, and the time to pay the dance mc is just about here, and some will not want to pay.

Too bad for them.

Grog... there is an active effort taking place right now to discredit the Right and to prepare the Left to "hold the Right accountable" for every negative action that takes place in this country for as long as Democrats are in power. Watching the media, hearing what different politicians on both sides are saying... I won't lie, I'm concerned.

"You hate him. Good. Then the time has come for you to take the last step. You must love Big Brother. It is not enough to obey him: you must love him." ~~~Winston Smith in Orwell's 1984

Grog... I got off track there. Chatting via text with my kid in Arizona and trying to figure out supper... Anyway, they are already trying (desperately) to put an alternate version of history in place. Anyone with a brain knows that there was no coup attempt. No attempt to overthrow the government. That isn't real. But they are doing all they can to make people believe it is real. I have never seen such a blatant attempt to control the people and create a version of history that contradicts what is before your very eyes. Un fucking real. And people will believe it because they want to believe it. Dangerous.

Grog said...

An alternate version? Aye, because they know that people will believe it, as you said, and because they think if the last four years is altered, they can avoid going to jail for their treason. Or be held accountable in what-ever fashion.

More fool them.
