Nurse the Hate: Hate The Result

I am ashamed to be an American today.  I have never felt that way before, even when George W was elected twice.  While that man was a buffoon, I never considered him a dangerous buffoon.  Even when that moron thought invading Iraq was a good idea, I wasn’t embarrassed to be an American so much as just sorry I had to try to explain a clearly stupid thing our nation had done to people from other nations.  This is worse.  We just decided that a transparent used car salesman should be in charge.  He has no idea what he’s doing and even worse, he doesn’t care.  In a complicated world that needs to have a delicate touch, he's a drunken fratboy at a keg party.    

There is really no way around it.  The American people just elected a digital age Benito Mussolini.  They gave a big thumbs up to racism, sexism, and the illusion of returning to an age that never really existed.  It’s a stark wake up call to all of us.  There are more of those terrifying simpletons that were seen on man-on-the-street interviews outside of Trump rallies than I ever imagined.  This is the real America.  Our country is Ford F-150 trucks, contemporary country music, WWE wrestling, flag waving, fear of brown people, and ignorance as a virtue.  America was shown to be Wal Mart nation.  Despite more red flags than any candidate had ever had revealed, The People voted with their hearts.  What is in their hearts frankly scares me.  I find myself unbalanced to discover I live in a place where over half of the other people share a mindset of fear, hatred, and division.

The American People have remarkably short and flexible memories.  Irrefutable facts have become debatable.  The argument for electing George W. included that amazingly ill-conceived notion of “Well, he isn’t smart but he will surround himself with smart people”.  I suppose the Trump argument will be “He might be mentally ill, but he will surround himself with sane people.”?  The idea of having qualifications doesn’t seem to hold salt at this point.  The People must have looked at this as a Reality TV show.  They wanted to see Trump, who is much more interesting on TV than Hillary over the next four seasons.  The vast majority of the American Public cannot be counted on to sort through and comprehend the tidal wave of information and disinformation washing towards them.  Sit quietly in a public place and listen to people.  Most people are complete dipshits.  Despite walking around with a device in their hand that enables them to educate themselves on any topic they choose at any time, instead they look at Fantasy Football, pornography, and cat videos.  Holy fucking shit.  This is happening.

I will never feel the same way about America.  I feel like I live here but have little in common with the majority.  I don't trust the will of these people.  I am afraid of these people.  You should be too.

One cannot continually pour buckets of excrement onto the things others hold dear and not expect eventual push-back.

The pendulum always swings both ways.

Deal with it, sweet pea.

I guess we will see how "great" America is in a few years. I think I have a different version of greatness than you do. My gut tells me you aren't going to get what you think you bought.

Yes...we will see.

You libs always make the same mistake...under-estimate, pigeonhole, and disparage the "dirt-people" as uneducated, "raycisss," rubes.

I know auto mechanics who would run circles around you and your college-educated "elite" ilk.

To mask racism and sexism as "patriotism" is what I find abhorrent. It is the exact opposite of the alleged ideals of this nation. I never underestimated The Rubes. The Rubes are to be feared.

I was gonna comment on the number of folks that ought to be doing the walk of shame today considering what they went to bed with yesterday but decided it was foolhardy considering the ilk commenting here. The longer I thought about it, the more pissed I got, so I said fuck it. You and I don't deserve that crap.

At least we'll get anti-establishment outsiders like Gingrich, Giuliani and Crispy Creme Christy as cabinet members! We aren't really going back to 1965, but to 2001! I LOVED 2001!!

With the exception of that inconvenient 9/11 attack, 2001 was a hoot!

Quit being a pussy about all this, Greg. See, the first amendment protects religious freedom and president-elect Trump is going to honor the Constitution and....uh...wait....ok, forget that part. What I mean is, people flocking over the border like those undocumented workers who built almost-president Trump's hotels out of Chinese steel are the problem and....uh, no wait, ok forget that part. What I MEAN is, just because you liberals can't understand that practically-president Trump wanted to discredit the parents who's son gave his LIFE serving in our Armed Forces doesn't mean....uh, wait, Oh no!! I didn't even go to college and I'm a pussy too! Didn't see that comin. Dang.

The web is very contentious these days. It's time we return the internet to what it was meant for: pornography and illegal music downloads.
