By all rights, these should be the best of times. Why am I so cranky and downright depressed?
I’ve been thinking about that lately and it comes down to a whopping case of the “Blue State Blues” and and the cumulative daily abuse heaped on top by the elites: cultural, media & Deep State governmental.
We are 18 months down the road following The Election that shocked the world.
Foolishly, I expected the losers of that election to be over their whining by now. Instead, in the state of Minnesota, the self-styled #Resistance has doubled, tripled and quadrupled down on rage, hate and insanity.
Can you even begin to conceive of a circumstance where you actually know people (people – plural) who are absolutely convinced that Trump hired Russian hookers to piss on a bed because the Obama’s slept in it? And no, the sentiment is too ubiquitous and sincere to just be someone simply yanking my chain.
Red staters have no clue what it’s like to be in the real resistance – hunkered down in “The Underground” while the cultural/political waters that wash over you daily make no bones about how much they hate you.
Does anyone think I am kidding? Let me ask you this: did your congressman spend time palling around with Louis Farrakhan? Mine did and he is going to get re-elected with 75% or more of the vote, yet again, come November.
The only way to survive with battered conservative syndrome is to try and get immune to the crazy. It’s like chemotherapy – the goal is to kill it before it kills you.
But I will say, what really frosts my frozen butt up here in “The Loon & Tick State” is just how little the so-called conservative intelligentsia have done (are doing) to fight back against the fascistic, gag-happy liberal establishment.
Every damn day is a tightrope walk through the minefields of political correctness.
Every damn day more battering from the alphabet media and the local fishwraps.
Every damn day not a damn thing from Jeff “Snoozing” Sessions and the timid GOP establishment.
Every damn day waiting for the shoe to drop from Mueller’s “Chartered Fishing Tour” which receives copious and breathless reportage in all the local outlets.
Every damn day yet another wave of listening to the media cheer-leading about the inevitable “Blue Wave.”
There is no escape, even at Drudge. This week he click-baited blue Texas. Blue Texas for God’s sake.
Yeah sure you Lone Star Stater’s and red state residents got a good “Ha-Ha” out of that, but up the Mississippi that is downright unnerving.
It’s like living in Occupied France and then hearing that Eisenhower pulled the troops off the Normandy beaches.
And on and on and on and on and on it goes.
Anyway, you get the picture.
Time to stop with all The Moriarty, end this desperate dispatch and plop a dose of Oddball into the DVD.
Woof woof and knock off those negative waves…
