Guest: Post Inaugural thoughts.

From Greg:

Do You Know Someone Suffering From Trump Unacceptance & Resistance Disorder (TURD)?

TURD is a pattern of pathologically dissociative and psychotic behavior, first observed in the late hours of November 8th 2016, and increasing in severity with passing time.

Sufferers of TURD often exhibit pronounced cognitive dissonance, sudden bouts of rage, rioting, and uncontrollable crying.

People with TURD are characterized by a persistent unwillingness to accept that Donald Trump is going to Make America Great Again.

TURD Is caused by the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States of America. For many, both in America and worldwide, this was a shocking and unexpected outcome; their preferred news sources having failed to inform them that the alternative candidate was a criminal parasite in such ill health she got chucked into the back of a van like a kidnap victim.

Research is ongoing, but TURD appears to correlate closely with the following environmental and behavioral factors:

Patients with TURD are very resistant to treatment, and dangerous in large groups. Any possibility of treatment requires that they be separated from their hive-mind support apparatus; they cannot begin the process of accepting reality in the presence of encouragement towards delusion and irrationality. Separation may require the assistance of law enforcement.

If you have a friend or loved one suffering from TURD, urge them to seek treatment. Together we can beat this scourge, and Make America Great Again.

Know the signs, spot the symptoms, and save a life.

Undercover Project Veritas: Protesters Using Homeless To Block Streets During Inauguration?

Just a few comments from notes taken while watching today’s historic inauguration of President Donald J. Trump.

There was no Muslim Imam invited to deliver a prayer.

There was no gay or transgender  minister invited to deliver a prayer.

Chelsea Clinton and the Obama kids were not present in the audience. 

Melania Trump and the Trump family looked stunning.

There was noticeable steam emanating from the ears of Obama during Trump’s speech.

CNN and MSNBC had gleeful remarks regarding the lesser turnout of a crowd for this event compared to that of Obama’s back in 2009. No mention was made that for Obama, no conservatives threatened the safety of the crowds with riots, marches and demonstrations. The one today had the threats of violence, leading many to decide to watch from the safety of their homes. Of course, Obama had refused to admonish his followers to behave with dignity and respect and to refrain from intimidating those who would have attended the event. 

Without a doubt, this was the most pro-American, patriotic, stirring speech from an American President’s induction we have ever heard. He was straight with the people he evidently adores and wishes to defend and have prosper. He attempted to kiss no one’s butt. He owed no one in the VIP seats a thing. He lambasted the previous president who was sitting grim faced in his seat, hands folded in his lap. His talk was right to us, those sitting in our homes watching and listening. It was a promise from one who has never held elected office that he would take his job seriously, he would cater to no one and that he would strive to make America great again! What’s wrong with that? 

Post-inauguration statements from both CNN and MSNBC’s commentators:

“It was a radical event since there was no mention of gender rights.”

“Dark, too idealistic.”

“An over-reaction. No road to togetherness. A convention speech. No olive branch thrown to other side.”

“Obama has higher approval rating right now than Trump.’

“Too racial, America First is his cause.’

“Beijing and Moscow will love this speech.”

“He’s not healing the nation after a brutal presidential campaign.”

“Obama is leaving after two successful, scandal free terms. He was the best president, ever.”

“No reach out to Hillary.”

Since the schools no longer teach government to our kids I guess it’s up to the parents (if they can) or grandparents to explain how the world works successfully, and how to keep the country going.  This story makes me ill and sad for my country.

From an Oregon Resident:

While I was getting a coffee, I overheard 7 young people (22-26 years old, 5 males, 2 female) who have been protesting in downtown Portland the last two nights.

I told them I was doing research and asked nicely if they would answer some questions.  They were cool with it, so I sat down and went for it.

Three voted.  Of the four who didn’t, none was registered to vote.

None of them researched independently either candidate.

All were for Hillary but preferred Bernie.

Why the Democratic Candidate?

  • “More things are taken care of.”
  • “Time to have a woman President.”
  • “Democrats aren’t sexist or racist.”

Six of them live at home.

All are under their parents insurance.

Two have “real” jobs.

Three aren’t working, nor are they trying hard to find a job either.

Parents pay for everything in their life or subsidize it.

Six get money from mom or dad every month.

Two have been on unemployment for 6+ months.

One is at Portland State U, doesn’t work, and parents pay for everything.

All 7 said Trump is a racist/sexist.  I asked to cite proof … “That tape, man!”

When I asked, as a man myself, “Have you ever said anything like that when you’ve been hanging out with your buddies?   All five males said “Yes.”

Would you say it if you knew you were on tape?  All five answered “No.”

What’s the difference?  I asked.  “You’ve all said bad stuff like that.  Does

that mean you hate women and are a sexual predator?”  Nothing.  No answer.

None could tell me how our government works … they didn’t know how

laws are passed, how the House of Representatives or the Senate work.

None could explain how a bill is passed.

Only one could tell me the difference between legal and illegal immigration.

One of them said, “Legal immigration is when you immigrate legally.”  Seriously.

None could explain the purpose of the Electoral College or how it works.

In 10 minutes they felt they had explained everything.  Nice kids … but so ignorant.   I know some awesome, phenomenal young adults; but I’m afraid the majority are like these seven.  Too many participation trophies, too much coddling by parents and teachers.

In 1944 18 year olds stormed the beach at Normandy into almost certain death.

In 2016 18-year-olds feel unsafe because words hurt their feelings. This country is in deep do-do!
