Tell Us How You Really Feel (Note: A Trump-free post)


Telling it like it is.
Keeping it real.
Speaking truth to power.

I'm running out of cliches.

But this was so refreshing to hear, I wanted to share the warm fuzzies.




I'm liking this guy. (Is that a cliche?).

From E-Mail

Dear Friends: 

I have the distinguished honor of being a member of the Committee to raise $50,000,000 for a monument to Hillary R. Clinton.  

We originally wanted to put her on Mt. Rushmore until we discovered there was not enough room for her two faces.

We then decided to erect a statue of Hillary in the Washington, D.C. Hall of Fame. We were in a quandary as to where the statue should be placed. It was not proper to place it beside the statue of George Washington, who never told a lie, or beside Barack Hussein Obama, who never told the truth, since Hillary could never tell the difference. 

We finally decided to place it beside Christopher Columbus, the greatest Democrat of them all. He left not knowing where he was going, and when he got there he did not know where he was. He returned not knowing where he had been, and did it all on someone else's money (what a guy).

Thank you,

Hillary R. Clinton Monument Committee


P.S. The Committee has raised $2.16 so far.  
We can count on your assistance, can't we?

Sunday

Want something inspirational for a Sunday?
Go see Z.

How's my weekend? Thanks for asking.

We drove to Kalamazoo (is there a better name for a city?) yesterday to meet Scherie's dad and his wife for a late lunch.
Had a nice time.
On impulse we stopped at friends in Battle Creek on the way home, hoping to get some Ice Cream and Cake from their son's birthday party, but they were avoiding us, or celebrating elsewhere.

Got home, watched Outlander, and crashed.

Got a call in the middle of the night from work, so i knew I'd have to check in again at 6 with my day shift guy when he arrived.

Got up at 6, talked to him, he said it was snowing at the plant when he got in. Just ducky.
Made a pot of coffee and waited.
He called back just a bit ago, and it was a minor hydraulic leak that was squirting like an arterial rupture with every stroke of the press.
I can now officially go back to bed,,,
That's where I'll wake Scherie up and get ready for Church, then a matinee showing of Civil War, dinner with friends afterward.
I hope I stay awake during the movie.

I hope you have a blessed Sunday also.
Tell me about it if you'd like.

You will be Assimilated.

I was on a local radio station with it's owner yesterday.
It's not long.
I'd like your opinion.
I don't want you to listen to me.
Listen to him.
Thayrone X's On the Edge Radio Show excerpt.

He messaged me on FB today.
Let me sum it up:
Everyone should back Trump.
Trump doesn't need to reach out to recalcitrant republican voters.
They should just swallow it and support him.
Trump doesn't need them.
They're going to be to blame for Hillary winning (not Trumps negatives).

I was going to write this and then saw a comment at Kid's from Adrienne.

My reply to her :
It doesn't tick me off that anyone is on the Trump train.
I'm tired of being derided for not.
It's like Invasion of the Body Snatchers or the Borg.
"Why should I vote Trump?" "Because Hillary."
"But what's a good reason?" "Because Hillary."
"But Trumps sounds like a democrat." "Because Hillary."

"I have reservations about Trump." "You're an idiot and a traitor!"

No matter what concern you may have up to and including:
"He'll be a dictator and overthrow the Constitution." "Because Hillary."

There may be worse things than Hillary.
There may not be.
But some people are so brain-locked you can't talk to them, or more accurately, they can't talk to you.

Pile it on.

One common attribute of a Trump supporter:
They look down their nose at those who aren't.
They insist we change our diaper, get our panties untwisted, grow up, wisen up
Whatever it takes to say one pile of manure is better than another and we should embrace it.

How to win friends and influence people.

Addenda:
An audio clip in reply to an appeal for callers to discuss their anti-trump position now that Cruz has dropped.
Also, in that audio, LGBT Mother's Day is discussed. :)
