“Look I have many friends who are Republicans, but they are not pathological liars.”

Much as I am conflicted to shit upon my own beloved blog, to help preserve my sanity I am saving here below a *sample* of the kinds of exchanges I sometimes engage in with supporters of the unmitigated nightmare that is our incoming “president-elect.”  To a large degree I have given up on even trying to keep the kids updated on what is happening, since every day is a new horror show whose details are either to lurid (“golden showers” in Russia) or unthinkable (repealing healthcare with no replacement) to explain.

But for historical purposes I do want to preserve a snapshot of what the social-political climate in this country has become.  This is not recommended reading, so if you don’t want to get depressed, skip it!

Unless you think you have the fortitude, then here you go!

While watching this Bernie Sanders Town hall on CNN Monday (January 9th),

I posted this quote on Facebook, and here is what ensued:

“Look I have many friends who are Republicans, but they are not pathological liars.”

And how ’bout them RepubliKKKans, finally getting to take away health care from 20 million Americans, hey? I’m sure next time one of us gets a heart attack our own medical savings account will cover it, no?

We can listen to another side and say, “Hmm…I hadn’t considered that.” We both have friends like this – breathe deep, relax, give the man a chance. But they never, ever can come back with anything real. Is is unbelievable.

Jenny TheJuggler Tim Levesque you’re right that was obnoxious of me to implicitly insult you for possibly not knowing vocabulary words. But if you could refute the statement you would instead of just hurling more insults, complaining about us using our voices and reiterating that we should just stand back and hand over the country.

Jenny TheJugglerOmg Gigi did you see how many times Tim said he would stop babbling on this thread? That is another pattern I find in these pugnacious Dumpsters who NEVER EVER have ANY data to back up anything they say; just 1) blanket, baseless defense of Chump, 2) complaints about opposing viewpoints and 3) personal insults. Usually fueled by idiocy and vitriol. It’s astonishing really. Zero substantiated claims that I have seen, EVER. Not yet. Here’s hoping (that one of them will be able to make a viable point someday).Like · Reply · 1 · Just now

Note: I am neither proud nor ashamed of my conduct on this thread.  I believe the tyranny and hostility and baseless claims of the trump-trolls requires nothing less than being called out for their bullshit and  demand for substantiation of their otherwise baseless claims.

God help us all ‘cuz it’s obvious our president-elect ain’t gonna.
