Well, we had snow... about 6 inches up here in Enola, and we had ice, too. The branches have crystallized, all glittery in the lamp light. The only thing keeping it from being a Hallmark moment is the absence of "B" actors fawning all over each other in a "G" rated game of touchy-feely. That, and the fact it's slick as hell. Good thing temp is going to hit the 40's (F) today.
Can we talk about things that warm the cockles of every Conservative's heart? I'm sure this lit a toasty, little fire in their bosoms. This guy wanted to kill Democrats and News people, among others. Of course, you do know he is not alone. There is more than one of him out there, and all of them support the Idiot Jerk in the White House. He encourages them. They, just like him, despise criticism. They want to be thought of as special, as chosen. Rather than focus on the needs of others, they prefer self-specialization... in other words, they are very selfish. Just like the Idiot Jerk in the White House. Whether they understand or not, he has become their face... and he's pretty damn ugly. He tells them who to hate, and they hate. He bellows "the New York Times is an enemy of the state," and they agree. What fucking state is he talking about? North Carolina?
Oh, I forgot, since he only gets his briefings from Fox News, he may not know, but North Carolina is already screwed. Wait, I have to correct myself, it's not the state that's screwed, it's the Republican Party. Can we talk about voter fraud? If you want, you can watch a clip of Mark Harris crying in the back of the courtroom as his son testifies against him. Harris was warned and do you know what he told himself? "I don't have tow worry. I'm special. This is for the good of all conservatives." Now that his ass is in the fire, you can bet he's going to apologize and ask forgiveness. Will he learn anything? Absolutely not. He's a Conservative. He's Special. He believes he's been Chosen. If he hasn't already done so, you can bet his white pastor will tell him "It's for the good of the party."
And Jussie has been arrested. Things to keep in mind, a lot of people jumped on board the Jussie Bandwagon because he provided them with the ugly truth about racism, when in actuality he was providing them with the ugly truth about mental illness. Does he hate white people so much he felt compelled to create an ugly incident in order to vilify them? Or are his neural transmitters consistently misfiring to such a degree his actions seemed rational... to him? The truth is we may never precisely know. Of one thing we can be certain, he was not spurred into action, like the Coast Guard Lieutenant who wanted to kill Democrats, my a morally degenerate president spewing hatred. Jussie's problem is personal. I do not think he was terrified the Idiot Jerk in the White House might be impeached.
