“MAY YOU LIVE IN INTERESTING TIMES” — This is, of course, a CURSE and not a blessing.
By Max R. Weller
(BTW, I’m sick as a dog this morning with a case of Boulder Shelter Crud, but I felt obligated to weigh in on the apparent end of the Democratic Party on the national level.)
When I arrived at Boulder Shelter for the Homeless at 6AM, the mood among both homeless people and staff was very subdued, and for the first time in my memory nobody at all was talking about where to go to get Free Stuff. This is a positive, in my view, and if the new Trump administration can repeal ObamaCare, end the Housing First program of providing expensive apartments for drunkards with a dual diagnosis of mental illness, work together with the military forces of Russia to wipe out ISIS once and for all, rebuild America’s infrastructure, and focus on a host of other goals dear to the hearts of real conservatives like me, things may turn out well.
On the other hand, if Donald Trump continues to behave like a crazy guy with no control over his raunchy mouth, absolutely nothing good will be achieved. It’s time for President-elect Trump to grow up and commit himself to working as a partner with House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. An unprecedented opportunity lies before the GOP:
See: Donald Trump wins the presidency in stunning upset over Clinton from the Washington Post.
An anonymous wag at BSH said, “One hilarious thing about America sliding into Third World status is having a Slovenian prostitute as First Lady.” Harsh, certainly, and I hope we can maintain our leadership in the world. Really, would having horny old Bill Clinton as First Husband have been that much better?
I don’t wish to be accused of piling on the defeated Democratic candidate, but this humiliating outcome certainly exposes Hillary as one of the weakest candidates for president ever offered by her party. As I see it, the Dems need to get over themselves and stop pretending to be America’s saviors . . . Their self-aggrandizing notion has been soundly rejected by the country as a whole, although it will linger on inside the Boulder Bubble in Colorado.
