The thing that’s been bugging me most since the presidential election goes beyond the commitment of #americant to continue along its path of batshit conservative politics. I’ve been seriously trying to figure out how the DNC and the Clintons totally underestimated political conservatism. Putting all the republican party trickery aside, i.e. gerrymandering congressional districts, the power of talk radio, full spectrum legislative blocking, etc., why didn’t Hillary figure out that it would be to her advantage to embrace not just Bernie but to not turn him into such a lavish opponent? I know. I know. By the time the election rolled around Bernie and Hillary seemed to have found each other. But to my worst-mind, it was too little, too late. Which begs the question: After all those debates with Bernie, why didn’t Hillary seek him out as her vice president–especially considering who she ended up choosing? Having Bernie attend a few DNC gatherings before the election seemed to only galvanise the hate liberal minded people had for Hillary–which I can only assume comes from the republican conservative monster-machine that has corroded the collective mind of #americant. Hillary Clinton, to me, turned out to be a very, very bad person by the time it was all over. And that’s a shame because I always liked her. I guess the real problem is that an entire country’s mind has been so profoundly corrupted, brainwashed, filled with talk-radio batsh*t, that it will never be enough if a liberal candidate shows herself as though she were (still) stuck in the campaign of her husband 1991-92. And. So. Here we are. As much as I found appreciation for dipsh*t Dubya Bush because he gave us Barry-O, I despise Hillary & Bill because they gave us #Trump. The damage is indeed done and I fear that’s it. It’s over & out. For the rest of my life there’s no place for moving politics to the left. That, to me, was the answer for America and her grand future. And so. I want to try and forget the recent election. I’ve ripped up my Democrat party card. I’m probably never gonna vote again and even the more distant dream of someday returning to live in America is gone. Conservatives have won. It’s yours. Keep it. Try not to choke on it. But before I get too far off subject. I consider myself a rational thinking person. Stuff like fake news doesn’t bother me because, well, I’m rational. Did the Russians and/or Putin influence the election and thereby cause Trump’s victory with either fake news or hacking? Again. Rational thought wins. Trump won because so many people hated Hillary and then acted accordingly at the voting booth or just stayed home and didn’t bother voting because, well, there was no one they could vote for. And then there’s Hillary’s “deplorable” comment. Why was I more offended by her saying that than I was offended by Mitt Romney’s 48%? Oh my. Fake news. Putin. Deplorables. From whence has it all come? But you know what, dear worst-reader? All of that pales at the story I’m linking to below. Like I said. I’m pretty sure I’m a rational thinking human being. No one can sell me tonic water to make my hair grow back. Nor can anyone make me buy beans when I’m supposed to buy groceries. I get the whole “sucker born every minute” concept that made a country. But the story below really gets to me. A young man working for the DNC in DC is brutally murdered and no one can explain it. The killer hasn’t been found and the only motivation that reporters can come up with is that maybe it was a botched robbery. Don’t get me wrong. I grew up in and around the Washington DC area. I have an old friend back home that suffered because of the brutality and ignorance of poverty and guns in America. But there’s something else about this kid’s murder that needs to be explained. Oh what am I saying? It was just a murder and he was in the wrong place at the wrong time where guns and hate mix like the ingredients of a meal no one can eat. Oh wait. There’s still fake news. Such as how did all of those DNC emails get to Wikileaks? A hack? Someone, somewhere, broke into DNC email servers? Or did someone, somewhere simply fill up a USB stick and then send that off to Wikileaks so that the world can see the really, really awful emails that showed how the elites and the wannabe elites of the DNC really are?
