Does Trump make liberals ill?

Published

on

Did you know that politics makes liberals ill? Yes, that’s right, it does. But before we describe and diagnose the situation, let’s look briefly at a few things that make Leftists angry, to better understand how they….emote. (Most don’t think.)

To make the Left angry all we need to do is exist, guilt-free. This enrages them, which is a fine sight to see. But what makes their heads truly explode…Republicans in power.

Mind you I didn’t say ‘conservatives in power,’ I said ‘Republicans.’ Republicans are often not conservatives, or anything close. Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnel, both Republicans of long-standing, are what Kurt Schlichter has called ‘Fredocons’ men who stupidly want to respect of people they think important.

Whenever Republicans hold positions of power, even if they aren’t really conservatives, they still make the Left shake with rage. We all remember the Bush years. 8 years of Bob Woodward writing (another) presidential debunking. 8 years of books descrying traces of Christian theocracy amongst Christian Bush-voters. 8 years of Bush Derangment Syndrome. We all thought it was nuts. But what’s happening now is even more nuts.

But now we’re onto Trump Derangement Syndrome. Here are a few examples of what Trump’s driving liberals to.

Jimmy Kimmel has been driven to calling a Fox anchor a ‘little creep’ for daring to criticize Kimmel. The New York Post found it necessary to discuss how Trump called Kim Jong-Un ‘Rocket Man’ and ignore the other aspects of the speech. Maxine Waters continues to beat the drum for Trump’s impeachment, ignoring that there is no such thing as an impeachable offense.

Even the neo-conservative leader Bill Kristol has gone mad, continues to lead the Never Trumpers and calling for a military coup against Trump.

But here are some of the finest examples.

Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank, has complained that Trump’s presidency is literally killing him. In a recent article Milbank has said that he’s suffering from, “fatigue, poor sleep, even some occasional chest pain.” He’s said he was health before Trump but now, “eight months into Trump’s presidency, I was suddenly ailing.”

Milbank has company in the Trump Ward at the hospital, in the person of WSJ columnist Peggy Noonan. Noonan recently described a drug-induced dream she had, in which Trump and Hilary were more humble and gracious. MSNB host Katey Tur has written in a new book that Trump’s election made her want to barf. When she heard Trump was planning victory rallies after his electoral win, “The panic mounts. More rallies? I am falling over. More taunting crowds, more round-the-clock live shots. More airports, more earsplitting Pavarotti…I can’t. I just can’t.”

So why are these liberals suffering so greatly? Well, because for many of them, politics is both religion and therapy. They let their need for faith in something drive them into the arms of Progressivism. But this is unfair to Progressivism. Much as I dislike Charles Beard, TR and Woodrow Wilson, I readily admit them to be men of talent and, in the case of TR, absolute fearlessness. Today’s liberals are ninnies, whinginng wimps compared with their forebearers.

If politics makes you physically ill, then you need to get a life, and perhaps a God. Learn to look at things from outside the guilt-informed worldview of a 1st World, rich person, who is comfortable enough to make a living either writing or entertaining, instead of digging ditches or pouring concrete.

The man in the White House shouldn’t matter that much. Everyone, Left and Right, takes the President to be a far more important man than he really should be. It should matter little whether the President has an R, D or a T after his name, because the Republic can poke along without a Beneficent Leader to oversee all things.

If a Presidential victory rally makes you panicky, drink a big bottle of Tequila, take a nap and for the love of God remember we don’t live in a world that revolves around you. If you want to see a President impeached, by all means try to see it done. But stop acting as if there are impeachable offenses, when constitutional experts say there aren’t.

Politics is not the end of life. Things not going your way is part of life. Everyone, Grow Up!

Steven Crowder talks to wall protesters with predictable results

Steve Crowder talks to wall protesters with predictable results

The intolerant left really wants to be heard. They just don’t want to listen. That’s not unexpected, as the entire wall issue is one that drives people to contradiction. We saw this in clear display as conservative funnyman Steven Crowder took a second stab at “Build the Wall, Change My Mind.”

There were many telling exchanges as he approached a crowd of protesters who had gathered, holding signs and chanting about racism, tolerance, and immigrants being welcome. One particularly interesting exchange happened when Crowder talked to a woman holding a sign that read, “Immigrants are Welcome, Change My Mind.”

Unfortunately, the sign was a lie. She wasn’t really asking to have her mind changed. She continuously described how she felt uncomfortable talking to Crowder, which is understandable considering he had a mic and there was a camera, but it’s still disingenuous to hold a sign that says “change my mind” when there was no willingness to have a dialogue about the issue.

The difference between conservatives who want a wall and progressives who don’t is that many who support the wall are willing to have civil discourse on the issue. Many who oppose the wall must rely on false accusations of racism to make their point.

Buried in the farm bill, hemp was removed from controlled substances list

Buried in the farm bill hemp was removed from controlled substances list

Flashback to last month. It was the the Christmas season in 2018. The nation was gripped by strange weather. A partial government shutdown was starting. President George H.W. Bush died. Romaine was recalled. Defense Secretary James Mattis resigned.

It’s understandable that fairly big news for an industry as well as portions of American culture flew far below the radar of national attention. In the farm bill, which Congress passed and President Trump signed in December, was a change of how industrial hemp was classified.

It’s no longer considered a controlled substance.

The non-hallucinogenic cousin of marijuana, hemp has been considered a controlled substance because it has a very small amount of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). But the amount is so low many people have wondered why it was still considered a controlled substance. It has about as much chance of getting someone high as Honey Buns have of getting someone drunk (yes, they contain a small amount of alcohol).

Hemp is biodegradable and requires no fossil fuels to produce, making it a popular fabric for the environmentally conscious. But more importantly, it’s extremely useful with high tensile strength, porous fibers breath, and strong durability. One report sent to me claims hemp has 20,000 verifiable uses. We have not independently verified them.

When the bill was signed on December 20, National Hemp Association chairman Geoff Whaling said, “I was thrilled to hear the news, sorry that I would not be able to be there in person and then took a moment to reflect on the path that brings us all to this, most important and historical day.”

Even with all the uses for hemp that are already known, it’s likely we’ll see new uses emerging for this versatile plant now that it’s officially no longer a controlled substance.

Cartoon: Is that another huge immigration caravan?

Cartoon Is that another huge immigration caravan

The 2016 GOP field seemed like a clown car routine compared to what was essentially five legitimate Democratic candidates. Whether they simply feared Hillary Clinton or didn’t want to take their shot following President Obama, many Democrats who were considered potentially serious candidates didn’t run.

That’s not the case for 2020. We may end up with more Democrats in the running than we had Republicans in 2016.

Cartoonist Michael Ramirez captured the growing group perfectly:

It’s certainly starting to look like a migrant caravan forming. Oh, wait. Those are actually American citizens.
