It didn’t work then and it won’t work now…
Makes me want to give up my membership in the card-carrying elite – the educated members of our society who can hold two opposing thoughts in their brain at the same time who just can’t fathom that Trump won and want to keep focusing on his inadequacies.
Just because you worked hard to get where you are that does not mean the less fortunate are ignorant people who should pay fealty to you. You rail against the corporations who whipsaw this country without acknowledging that they depend upon the purchases of the rank and file, so why do you have no sympathy for the service workers who grease the skids of your life, the barista, the waitress, the street sweeper, the gardener, the nanny?
The list goes on and on of people who can no longer make it here.
And yet you keep talking about your feelings. The microaggressions, the rights of African-Americans, women and every oppressed minority extant.
Enough with the feelings, IT’S MONEY THAT PEOPLE WANT!
Sure, the trauma your people experienced in the old country, the burden of the color of their skin, those are real problems that need to be addressed, but not now.
Trump won by appealing to those who felt screwed by the present administration.
Oh, that’s right. Obama couldn’t do much because of an intractable Republican Congress.
That’s true! But that fact does not help the disadvantaged.
When is the left wing gonna speak to the Trump voters instead of deriding them?
Try criticizing your spouse, telling him or her they’re clueless, let me know how that works out, when he or she comes around to your way of thinking.
The left wing disconnected from its traditional base, all caught up in the successes it earned, and now that base has given it the middle finger. And what do the entitled and the powerful do? Cry all about it, as if they’ve got no powers of reasoning, never mind powers of cash and relationships.
Let’s start with the news media making fun of Trump tweeting.
First of all, I’ll agree with the Donald that SNL hasn’t been funny for years. Ever hear of a punch line? But reporting on his thin skin is not gonna bring his acolytes to your side, no way.
And re the Carrier debacle, wherein Indiana gave financial incentives to save some jobs… Do you really think gotcha is gonna grab the right wing right now, when they didn’t care that Trump grabbed so much and was revealed to do so during the campaign?
Business as usual is not going to solve our problems.
And you can start with the media.
Scolding Trump and wagging its finger over his appointments. They’re no better than the Republicans who never proffered an alternative to Obamacare. Don’t like what’s going on, work to change it!
But the left won’t do this, no way, it’s too entrenched in its lifestyle.
While the Republicans started the Federalist Society, to move jurisprudence to the right, supported gun rights and decided to focus on the states to restrict abortion…the Democrats were asleep at the wheel, saying most of the public was with them.
I agree with that, but it’s IRRELEVANT!
Who cares if Hillary won the popular vote, by the rules that are written Trump was victorious. What’s next, challenging the outcome of a football game, claiming that in certain burgs you get five downs?
Then again, that’s the left wing for you, believing it can bend the rules. Scratch a rich person and you’ll find someone working the edges, while simultaneously boasting how honest and ethical they are. Continue reading
