Our lives with Democrats

We live our lives in a family that is like most American families. There are Democrats, Republicans, and Independents in the ranks. We are Independents. Often we do not vote for GOP candidates. We vote for local Democrats.....occasionally.

Our dog Apollo
How can you tell the difference between Democrats, Republicans, and Independents? It is easy. Democrats always vote for Democrats. Republicans always vote for Republicans. And Independents vote against the evil of the two lessers (not the other way around).

Kristi and I never vote straight party tickets. There are just too many idiots out there on both sides.

Still, we are very aware of FACTS about the world. And we are forced to spend holidays with brainwashed Democrats. It is a burden. We have borne this burden for years. Often the intellectual oppression utterly destroys the holidays. You simply cannot have a discussion based on facts or logic regarding ANYTHING associated with current events with a brainwashed American Democrat. Doing so is like oral surgery. It is to be avoided. We sit and pretend nothing going on in the world matters. It is pathetic. Thank God it only lasts a few hours.

Lately, I have personally found that even simply walking my dog every day with these same types of brainwashed Democrats is far too tedious. When remarkable current events surface (like terrorism in Paris), I find that American Democrats literally have no clue what the general facts are surrounding the news of the day. This rules out all intelligent discussions. It is like wearing a straight jacket to share space with these people.

What is a person to do when basic current event conversation exposes the utter ignorance of the people? We are talking about a daily 1/2 hour dog walk, that still somehow constitutes a significant share of portion of your life?
Apollo won't walk with dogs owned by clueless people
Let's talk family first. In an effort to eliminate aggravation from my life, several years ago I made the decision to severely limit the time I spend with brain-washed Democrats during family get-togethers.

And accordingly, earlier this month after the Paris attacks, I decided I had heard enough from uninformed Democrats during the morning dog walks.

It is sad that that these American leftists are so committed to Democrats that they will support profound ignorance.

In response to endless one way conversations and overwhelming evidence of utter stupidity when questions are asked about basic facts, I have terminated my schedule of walking my dog for a half an hour with these Dems each morning. I find when I cannot share even a sliver of my thoughts with someone, it is time to move on.

The bottom line remains clear. The American left is destroying our country. And though I lament the loss of time with otherwise decent people, they are just too ignorant to commit a half an hour a day to.

Hell, I won’t commit an hour once a month to the clueless Democrats in my own family. When people suffer from intellectual dementia, they are a waste of life's increasingly precious time.

The emperor has no clothes!

A funny thing happened on the way to Barack Obama’s lame duck year in 2016. Not just the U.S., but the world discovered that this phony would-be emperor has no clothes.
In perhaps the most startlingly na├»ve (or deceptive, take your choice) moment of his presidency, Obama had the audacity to claim ISIS was “contained” just hours before they launched the latest attack wave on the world, with the epicenter being in Paris. But undeterred by how wrong he has been and continues to be, Obama wants to be even more wrong going forward.
Making a speech in Turkey, a country now led by a radical Muslim who would roll back women’s rights to the stone ages there, Obama, knowing he had been exposed as a stoop, lashed out at Republicans for daring to point out just how wrong he has been about ISIS.
The trouble is the very same day that Obama was lamenting that just a “few” bad apples in the Middle East were giving the rest of the Muslims a bad name, tens of thousands of Turkish citizens were showing the rest of the world how the man on the street in the Middle East assesses the latest murder spree in Paris.
When the public address announcer at a soccer game in Turkey called for a moment of silence, to honor the victims in Paris, the Muslim crowd of sports fans booed hatefully. Then this same crowd spontaneously erupted into a chant of “Alahu Akbar” in solidarity; not with the families of the dead innocents in Paris, but with the bloodthirsty Muslim killers. This disgusting display happened on the same day when Obama lectured Americans on their lack of compassion for Muslim refugees and outrageously mocked Republicans for being afraid of poor refugees.
Of course Obama had cynically chosen to do his moral preening as news report after news report revealed that under the cover of being forlorn Syrian refugees, the Paris killers moved back and forth in Europe as they plotted mass murders.
It is noteworthy that Hillary Clinton has been the architect of Obama’s Middle East policy the last seven years. Within hours of learning her ambassador to Libya was dead at the hands of terrorists (which her emails reveal that she acknowledged privately), publicly she blamed the deaths of those four State Department people on an American video. Of course the record shows she, like Obama, has been guilty all along of underestimating the terrorist threat and denying how pervasive the Muslim embrace of murderers is.
Then of course there is John Kerry, who contributes as Hillary’s successor what Lurch contributed to the Addams Family series. Kerry somehow let it slip as he thought out loud, that he saw the terrorist Charlie Hedbo murders in Paris earlier this year, as having a “legitimacy” or “rationale” when compared to the latest murders in Paris. Of course the “rationale” he was referring to was that he could see how Muslims could rationalize killing people who worked at the Paris newspaper because after all........it was exercising its free speech rights under the French Constitution. Apparently John Kerry could see the rationale and/or legitimacy with his unique grasp of the nuances of murder rationales and all.
Not only does the emperor have not clothes but it is increasingly clear to all but the most ardent Democrat that Obama and Hillary Clinton are surrounded by the largest collection of clueless people to ever dominate a major political party in the U.S.
In less than a year we are going to see if America is ready to take an intellectual bath and try to wash the stench of utter ignorance and stupidity out of Washington D.C.
