“The world’s gone mad today
And good’s bad today,
And black’s white today,
And day’s night today…”
From “Anything Goes,” from the 1934 musical by the same title, written by Cole Porter
A Bad person?
For one, I’m weary of being told by Democrats, and a few professing “Republicans,” that I am “The Problem!”
I own guns and go armed, legally. In addition, I pay my bills, pay taxes, take personal responsibility for my obligations. Even though laws and regulations are impossibly voluminous and mostly incomprehensible, I do my best to be “law-abiding.” I do know right from wrong! I don’t commit crimes, not because I’m afraid of getting caught, but because I know and understand that thievery, harming other people, etc is wrong. Criminality is thus beneath me, as I am unwilling to disgrace my father’s name. I don’t even suggest, much less demand, special privileges for myself. I play by the rules, imperfect as they are, and take pride in being productive and contributing. I don’t consider myself “special,” and don’t expect to be even recognized, much less thanked, by politicians and bureaucrats for whom I provide luxurious and secure lifestyles, lifestyles far more comfortable than my own.
Notwithstanding, Democrats still insist I am “The Problem!”
I am apparently not taxed enough. I am not regulated enough. I am not subject to enough “rules.” I enjoy and exercise my personal freedoms way too much. My cherished personal independence makes them ever squirmingly uncomfortable! I am not nearly fearful, dependant, nor miserable enough to please them.
I am thus a “Bad Person” and therefore need to be punished. Punished by being forcibly disarmed. Punished with higher taxes, more incomprehensible, and arbitrarily-enforced, regulation, more harassment, more threats, more requiem exposure to violent criminals when I’m unable to protect myself.
All that is designed and intended to “teach me a lesson.” The lesson is that I better never even question, much less openly disagree with, their liberal/leftist agenda, if I know what’s good for me!
I sometimes get the feeling Democrats will never like me, no matter what I do!
On the other hand, our nation’s slovenly army of career parasites, the perpetually and willfully unproductive, non-contributing, who shamelessly filch off their fellow citizens as a permanent lifestyle, who do commit crimes, and who self-righteously demand special privileges for themselves more or less continually- they are apparently not “The Problem!”
In fact, they are loved, even admired, by liberal Democrats, just as long as they stay where there are and never change!
And, it amuses me when I watch leftist news anchors, and slobbering liberal/leftist politicians, alternately waxing demented and throwing temper-tantrums over DJT’s election victory, a victory they so piously, so smugly, so self-righteously predicted was impossible.
They’ll never forgive us for proving them wrong, will they?
“The American progressive elite relies on its influence, education, money, and cultural privilege to exempt itself from bad schools, unassimilated immigrant communities, dangerous neighborhoods, violent crime waves, and general impoverishment that are logical consequences of its own policies…
consequences for others, that is.”
