"I usually make up my mind about a man in ten seconds, and I very rarely change it." -- Margaret Thatcher
What keeps going through my mind is a comment from a resident lefty at Rachel's. She obviously imagines she's a good, caring person. But her comment demonstrates that she isn't, she doesn't even really understand the concepts. For some reason I find that comment much more disturbing than I would gloating.
Okay...so WHAT WAS IT??? I haven't been over there as much and the comment threads are CRAZY...can't make it through the hundreds of comments.Can you tell me???
This comment.She's an infrequent commenter and nobody replied to her so I'm hoping she'll just go away. The way I read that is basically:"Look at me! I'm a wonderful caring person, when I see wounded people I don't twist the knife. Aren't I special?. But hey, enough about you, let's talk about how unhappy I am that I didn't get absolutely everything I wanted." The mention of conservatives going Galt at the end is such a non sequiter that she probably just doesn't know what it means, but it makes me think of the Kulaks.
Oh yes, I have seen her before. I think her reference to "going Galt" or not was because Rachel said she wasn't going Galt.
Okay, but the way she used it in that sentence still doesn't make sense to me. Just seems like a juxtaposition of two completely unrelated concepts.I think I'm starting to feel better. You doing okay?
You doing okay?No.I am despondent. I truly believe that we have lost America as the country in which we were born, and will never see it again. As Reagan famously said, "Freedom is only ever one generation away." We were that generation. We failed.
This is one of those times I wish I was better with words. All I can tell you is that if you yield to despair it's going to be a bleaker world for the people who know you too. Focus on family, friends, horses, cooking, whatever makes you happy and you have some control over for a while.
Yes. I believe that you are right. And I will eventually do that.But not now. Not yet.I am still in mourning.
Ah, yes, I know of whom you speak. Knew from day one she is just another useful idiot for the left - like most progressives she has absolutely no idea just how evil progressivism is. It is after all just another word for communism just the same as 'liberal'.
Yes, I truly believe that most have no idea what they are actually endorsing. They would be SHOCKED if you tried to point it out. And of course, they would see that as proof that conservatives are idiots who overreact and don't understand anything that challenges their old-fashioned and backwards beliefs.You just can't win.
I've always liked the music of the Soviet Anthem...very dramatic. Maybe under the new Union of Socialist States of America we'll get more dramatic, inspiring music while we're celebrating our collectivist gains. Then again, maybe we're just screwed.
Probably both.For my part, I'm practicing my goose step.
