In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.
“Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”
Americans voted for Trump because the were tired of being talked down to and labeled as ignorant and behind-the-times for complaining about policies they rightfully or wrongfully believe are the cause of their economic woes; less job opportunities, stagnant pay, less buying power, elimination of pensions, 401K programs not providing livable incomes and controlled by unethical and duplicitous fee mongering financial institutions, and the elimination of the middle class in order to pay the unethical and duplicitous fee mongering professionals running the unethical and duplicitous fee mongering financial institutions.
Now it’s bad enough that this was happening to the good people living and working in the fly-over states and on Staten Island but the people running the Democratic Party insisted that the voters not only suck it up and accept their lot in life but be fully committed to the more important issues the party is pushing. If they conflict with other interests, too bad, only a racist or a sexist would ask questions.
No one likes an arrogant dick and the elites setting the agenda for Democrats are looked at (because they act it) as big arrogant dicks sucking the tit of government at the expense of those they say they are helping.
Blue Mass Group is the minor leagues for this inbred subconscious propaganda. National Public Radio and their local affiliates are ground zero for the smug yet constantly preachy messaging telling the listener what to believe, who to idolize, and who to look down on. NPR is the king of the editorialized statement camouflaged as a benign universal belief.
The arrogance resulted in one of the most flawed candidates ever presented. It wasn’t good enough to have our vote they also insisted we beige she was “the most qualified person to ever run for president” and her difficulties are because “she is a woman”.
And how about Catholics? All the talk about is how backwards the church is blah b;ah blah. How about finding some commonality. You know? Like helping and fighting for the fucking poor, the homeless, the sick, the immigrants, the addicted, the incarcerated, the abused, the…
Instead the Democratic elite tries to marginalize Catholics and implicitly labeled haters etc.
Who gives a shit if we have women priests? Lets be glad we have St. Francis Center down town helping the homeless.
Not for nothing but you people deserve what you got. You don’t realize that you are being used by the ultra elite whose only goal is to keep the various groups making up the many classes below the ultra-high fighting among themselves.
Most Trump voters are not bigots etc. They felt they were left with no other choice then to join forces with the bigots to protect their self-interets. Remember how many people were torn between Bernie and Donald? Bigots or socialists. It didn’t fuckin matter. They were just tired of people telling them what to do and how to think while getting less and less.
The media has earned its well deserved repeat of being 4th rate. First rate opinion of themselves in spite of being terrible.
These people watched the media cheer on the needless Iraq War. Remember Ted Kopek riding into Bagdad standing in a tank?
How about turning on the news Nov 8th and getting the results from Brian Williams. Brian Williams! Are you kidding me? Like he’s the fucking Michael Jackson of news. Nobody does it like he does it so we can overlook all sorts of indiscretions. He’s that good.
Yeah, the media sucks.
Anyway now comes the enima. Clean out the party elite, the dead wood, and the phoneys.
I say we start with Ed Markey and Katherine Clark. Talk about deadwood. Katherine Clark wants so bad to be important. What a fuckin’ lightweight. The first sign of a congressional loser is when said member is in the front of line to see the president when he walks down the aisle to give his state of the nation speech. Katherine did that.
She’s is punching well above her weight. Just a matter of time before she gets knocked out.
Anyway I see both of them vulnerable in a primary. When’s Markey up again?
