Very Very good, ‘Cold Anger’ (The Last Refuge)

conservative quote

Cold Anger

There’s a level of anger far deeper and more consequential than expressed rage or visible behavior.  Cold Anger does not need to go to violence.  For those who carry it, no conversation is needed.  You cannot poll or measure it; and even those who carry it avoid discussion.  And that decision has nothing whatsoever to do with any form of correctness.

Cold Anger is not hatred, it is far more purposeful.

Cold Anger absorbs betrayal silently, often prudently.  read the rest…

John:  Where does Trump come into all this?

The thing about Trump is that many people look at him as the answer to the question. “How do we ease the Republican Party out (and stuff them into the same closet the Whigs went into) and transition to an actual political party that can be differentiated from the Democrats?”.

One thing the GOP doesn’t understand, that 2012 and the Congressional majority they were handed was their last chance.  They blew it.  They will not be trusted again.

One thing the GOP and the Democrats don’t understand, that 2016 is the last chance for the electoral process to fix the damage and the loss of faith in our society, the economy and the rule of law.  The last chance.

To the GOP, do you want to keep the majorities you have now?  Start doing something.  How about impeaching Obama, (no, we know that you can’t actually convict him without the removal of the Democrat traitors in the Senate) it would keep him busy and make a long overdue statement and might even drag some of the bodies out into the light of day.

Or you can do nothing and just sit and wait until you are swept away.

  1. Afraid we’re waiting until Hillary is elected. She’s gotta be cackling at Trump’s continued run. http://confederacyofdrones.com/2015/12/10/trump-fan/

      Yikes, I’m not waiting until Hillary is elected, because I don’t feel she will be; too much baggage for her whole life and now it continues through her e-mails and questionable connection fo Solyndra.

      I do agree, we are waiting for someone to be elected. Someone else (OTT). You know what OTT mean? Other than Trump. And tight adherence to the Constitution, not progressing from it, but always looking to it

      • If you wait for one of the GOP (approved) candidates to win then the day after they are inaugurated in Jan 2017 you will be disappointed. Because the GOP will always disappoint you. (or betray you, if you prefer)

        Checks and balances, that’s what the original idea was. Plus/Minus Ying/yang, an observable difference on the other side of the line. But it has stopped making a difference whether a Democrat or Republican got in; to our progress towards an all controlling and encompassing State, we have obviously lost that balance.

        Whatever else about Trump he’ll play a different game. Six months ago I didn’t give Trump a thought and maybe objectionably he is a bad choice. My question is, “Would it work out better for the people with a man like Trump versus the Congress and the bureaucracy than another member of that ‘old boys club’?

          It seems that your backing has gone to Donald Trump. Mine has gone to Carly Fiorina.

          We both come from a similar viewpoint that establishment candidates will not be ABLE to manage the actions of the government.

          Why, because, with the exception of the ‘outsider’ candidates, the other candidates (with the possible exception of the governors, Bush, Kaisich, Christie and I’m sure they’re more!).

          The outsider that I’ve chosen is Carly Fiorinia. An outsider with much knowledge of the inside and how it works.

          She also knows world leaders and by knowing the leaders, she knows what makes them ‘tick..’ especially Vladimir Putin.

          I’m assuming that your mention of APPROVED GOP candidates, you mean the establishment candidates. I totally agree and I see a simlarity. But, I am impressed that outside candidtes are not owned.

          • I’m not a Trump fanatic, if he gets elected it will be a bumpy ride I’m sure. How will it work is my sole interest, it’s like (carefully) adding volatile chemicals together and hoping for positive reaction. Don’t set yourself against him yet, if nothing else he is preventing the other candidates from sweeping the issues of illegal immigration and climate control under the rug.

            Correct in that I don’t lump all the GOP candidates together, but I’m only looking at the ones that have a hope of a chance to win nomination. Carly is running in the bottom of the pack, she speaks well but her record is mixed (at best). If she hasn’t been able to pick up momentum by now she is running out of time. I’d wait until after the holidays and see where she stands.

          I’m not as eloquent a writer as you are, my blog is more scientific, but I agree that a Trump administration would be “Fasten your seatbelts, It’s going to be a bumpy night.” Lots of surprises and maybe what this country needs. Every now and then I think about taking a gamble, but every now and then, I realize how much I love this country and I realize that he does, too. But his plans are too far out there and the logistics behind them…Even though I agree with the spirit of lots of what he says, there’s the find print and people react negatively to the fine print.

          Carly Fiorina is an outsider, too and she taps into very much the same disenfranchised and dissatisfied and overwhelmed and left-out portion of the American electorate. Sure, she’s had bumps and grinds in her road; who hasn’t? I work for her campaign (so It;s out there) and I know the things that are near true and the insults that are hurled that don’t hold a shred of truth. Those insults that would make a difference in a Fiorina presidency are so far down the list and in the minority as to be non-countable.

          I really feel that our government was meant to be by you, me, Oyia; not just a few people who talk well and happen to have been at the right place at the right time or who were born into money. No, it was intended that we all do our part and after doing our time, we’d be so exhausted, we’d be glad to go back and retire to the golf course or family farm!

          There was a comment somewhere about how low Carly Fiorina is polling. Name recognition? The only people who have reason to know who she is, are people who enjoy the political cycle and those people in the early primary states. So, the national polls mean nothing at this time. The only polls that really matter now are the state polls of a primary within the next few months.

          Being an outsider, and I find that refreshing. Considering that we have tried one-way of governance (actally several ways) but the same model. ‘HOW’S THAT DOING FOR YOU?’ Not me! So, I’m willing to try another model. I’m willing to try an outsider, in fact, I was sold at the beginning at the outsider theory, so either T, C, F. Trump is a bit too flamboyant and not enough subtance for me. I mean, can he flesh out ‘I’m going to make Mexico pay for the border?’ Carson is doing a dive bomb, but may recover.

          But starting ages ago, after I heard some of her VERY early speeches the year before last, when they were an hour+ in length, I found that I was mesmirized. As to so many people not knowing her? This time in other cycles, no one thought Jimmy Carter or Ronald Regan or Bill Clinton or who the heck is this guy, Barack Obama-could win. Don’t discount this lady. The media is doing just that. America needs her. No one I’ve talked to has a real credible reason for not wanting her in the WH, other than that means that he/she won’t be!

          These are perilous times and I think we need someone who can wheel and deal (though not fast and loose like Donald Trump), knows foreign policy (Too bad, Lindsay Graham is a one trick pony), has few ties to the establishment. That doesn’t leave many people, except it leaves me gladly with Carly Fiorina or Marco Rubio. Been around too short a time, to be ‘had’ by others and has brilliant ideas. But Carly Fiorina is my fist choice. She has the power of her very strong convictions and her integrity and is extremely intelligent. There are many well spoken individuals, but did you know that they’re reading off a telepromter. Most of the time, she’s not. Those are her answers, not answers to the questions that SHE wants to answer, but answers that YOU asked her to provide. Much longer than I expected. Sorry, Oyia.

          • Don’t apologize, why do you think I bother to do a blog? And as for your personal choice, way, way better than the current office holder or any current Democrat running. I read in your reply that Carly is “my fist choice”, I figured a typo or in visual sign language the choice of your heart. You could do worse.

            Trump is different, many dislike him on personal grounds, they don’t ‘like’ him. I say, fine. Who cares? We are not voting for the guy to be our next door neighbor, Churchill was (by all accounts) a real prick. As the old saying goes, he may be a bastard, as long as he’s OUR bastard. No one really knows who Obama is or what he really cares about. But I’m certain it’s not us.

            • Annie says:

              I see how Trump can be appealing because he says is like it is, NO PC crap from him and he plans to clean up the PC crap.

              He can be mighty appealing about what needs to be done in the long haul, but I wonder every now and then, when the rubber hits the road and he needs to come up with specifics (which he’ll need to-he won’t be able to get away with “I’ll appoint somebody to do it,” or “I’ll outsource it.”

              He’s done a fair job of alienating women. Not me, but the country is >50% women and in 2008 there were nearly 60% who cast ballots. That’s a lot of votes that Trump stands to lose.

              Like you say, nobody really knows where Obama came from or what he cares about. Truer words were never spoken.
