Those on the left have lost their common sense and minds. The division is too great now for compromise or healing.
That's because this ship doesn't truly want to have its course corrected. Our nation has become one of personal agendas rather than what's good for the nation as a whole.

Sadly 9/11 should have been a wake up call, and it was for a short time.

As the old saying goes, “hard times create strong men, strong men create good times, good times create weak men, weak men create hard times”.

Hopefully, I can remember that quote, but I'll probably phuque it all up in some future conversation!

Submitted for review:


A: MOST OF US


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thirty years ago -in the 80’s we lamented an assassinated wife beater and child abuser because he wrote song “Imagining” the beauty of a world transformed by communism.
The evil women hating Republicans put the first female Supreme Court Justice on the bench.


The POTUS was a party outside better known for his celebrity status than for his political savvy and he frequently said crazy shit that made his political opponents claim he was too old and crazed to be the POTUS.

An entailed democrat was in bed with foreigners in hopes of impacting the election against the republican - democrats were not outraged as his behavior (because he was liberal political royalty) but hated the republican POTUS because he was
a republican.
.

Great Britain also gave us a new Prime Minister that was ideologically aligned with the celebrity, former democrat, now republican US president.

In the 80’s a computer was named “Time Magazines Man of the Year” – we had strained US and Russia relations - there were discussions about the sovereignty of Hong Kong - there were pro-democracy protests in China that were seen by the entire world.

We were introduced to Mad Cow disease (now we have unlike Rachel Maddcow disease).

The Russians also had a bizarre nuclear accident.

Corporate juggernauts gave us “New Coke” “Windows” “Fox” “The Simpsons” "MTV VMA's"
…and the 24 hour news cycle.


We all should have seen "this" coming but when we said something about the odd culture shift, we where just ridiculed and called conspiracy nuts...
...just like now
