So I haven’t been blogging for a month. I’ve been active in the local aspects of the passed election (I don’t mean past, I mean passed for a reason), and busy with other real life things. I’d pop up in the comments of a few choice blogs, but for the most part I needed to do more reading and observing than writing. Sometimes one needs to shut up and listen to the sound of the world to recalibrate the instrument.
Fools to the left of me, jokers to the right. I’m in a general ennui with most everyone around me in real life, and waiting for the election concussion to subside before I follow through with cutting ties with a good deal of people with whom I’m finally fed up. I’ve tried to be catholic in the choice of people around me, for it’s not just a slogan that when you only associate with like-minded people; you get an echo chamber that would make the harshest Spanish Inquisitor jealous with its orthodoxy.
The gay atheist with the black boyfriend who hates America as much as William Ayers and strives to see a Soviet style system installed in America, he I can understand supporting Obama. The Hispanic working man with a wife and kids who goes to Mass faithfully every Sunday, and who keeps a pistol in the glove compartment to protect himself from the hoodlums in his neighborhood from jacking him in the alley while he gets the car in the garage, his Obama support angers me. 75% of Hispanics went for Obama.
Same for white ethnics, whose “Father Knows Best” lifestyles are despised by the Democrat Establishment. The Democrats held the Presidency and Congress 1993-1995 and 2009-2011, but did they use this mandate to improve the situation of the working man, to find a way to improve wages and benefits for workers without killing the host businesses, and bring back the era of readily available, well paying, family feeding, stable work? They blew their elected capital on don’t ask don’t tell, NAFTA, China Favored Trading Partner status, all sorts of gay crap, and abortion fiat disguised as national health care. I’m sick of the lemmings who keep calling the Democrats the party of the working man. Taking a flight to Urbana, Illinois to prevent the Indiana General Assembly from conducting business did nothing tactically for their cause, but it still makes the Dems highly popular.
And of the blacks, most of the ones I know who can out-conservative me, they line like lemmings for Jesse Jackson and other “black leaders” (I don’t remember if I still have that post where I thanked God that whites don’t have official spokesmen to make them look all short-bus like blacks have), what has the Democratic Party done for you instead of TO you, with the destruction of the nuclear family and making Uncle Sam the legal daddy for 3 generations, birthing the modern gang culture (look for Folk and People before 1964 – you won’t find them), and turning functional cities into 1945 Dresden.
There’s enough folk supporting the Democrats who could revolutionize the party into what they imagine it is, yet they go along with their cognitive dissonance.
At least in the Republican Party, the pro-life and pro-family people got tired of being the niggers of the party, turning in votes while getting no play for their issues, and they got active. At least now in the Indiana Statehouse, they have a chance to defund Planned Parenthood and get a state constitutional amendment making one man one woman marriage the only definition. But guys like Akin and Mourdock stepped on their tongues, something Democrats do all day long but never get called on for doing so. Of course now the GOP Establishment uses this to beat the social right into submission and back into the coalition’s ghetto, forgetting that fiscally conservative Republican Linda McMahon, anything but a social conservative, lost her election in spite of spending $100M of her own funds on the race, and social conservative who wears it on his sleeve Pence wins handily the Indiana Governor’s mansion when his opponent ceaselessly beat the drum on social issues. And their darling Romney was, and is, a social liberal, so shut up already. Between 8-10 million white working folk stayed home in 2012 since the choice was, social issues being equal between the two, voting for the Mistake a second time, or voting for Thurston Howell the Third who doesn’t care about their beliefs OR their job. Votes the social conservative blue collar supporting Santorum would’ve gotten. But the GOP Establishment (the same ones lecturing us to drop social issues), scared of Santorum’s surge at the end of the primaries, effectively put Baby in the corner come the Convention, both in regards to Santorum as Paul. But the GOP Establishment doesn’t figure that the Evangelical Right would rather stay home and circle the wagons than go back to the “vote for us but don’t expect us to support your causes” ghetto the Democrats put Labor and African-Americans. We’ve been in the party for over 30 years and they still don’t get us.
Pox on both houses. Oh, and no footnotes or hat tips to my sources. Not out of plagiarism, but I’m tired and you can do your own homework, thank you.
