Quote of the day—Rising serpent @rising_serpent

You must’ve just woken up from a 5-year propofol coma and completely missed the Russia hoax, Steele dossier, FISA warrant, Kevin Clinesmith, Hillary paying fusion GPS, and your boss asking Susan Rice to write “by the book” in an email to herself on the last day of his presidency.

[This hints at the latest misunderstanding between the peons of the evil party and the stupid party. Both sides are running on high emotions and yelling at the other side.

One side is rejoicing that President Trump had his personal residence searched by the FBI and mocks the peons on the other side when they say things such as, “If it can happen to Trump it can happen to you!” And they get a response of, “Well, of course if you commit a crime and law enforcement presents sufficient evidence to a judge, they will sign off on a search warrant. It’s called ‘due process’, DUH!”

Apparently the Trump supporters have all the false accusations and manufactured evidence instances hard wired into their psyches and no longer think any reference need to be made. The Trump haters apparently never got the memos that all those years of claims of “Trump is going to prison any day now!” were just wet-dreams and not reality.

I would like to believe, but I’m a hopeless optimistic, some of the high emotions and agitation would dissipate if people would patiently explain the reality as they see it while the other side patiently listened. Then they might attempt to resolve their differences with reason and examination of the evidence rather than by yelling louder.—Joe]

  1. It is too late for that – the differences are far too fundamental. In the name of equality they have thrown out all the rules that make a society possible.

    Read https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/there-are-sprouts-of-hope-in-downtown-seattle-but-they-are-wilting/.

    I am reminded of the story of Sodom and Gomorrah and other stories of wickedness including Proverbs 16:27-29 that I heard so often when I was growing up.

    Idle hands are the devil’s workshop; idle lips are his mouthpiece.
    An evil man sows strife; gossip separates the best of friends.
    Wickedness loves company—and leads others into sin.

  2. Look at the stories in zero hedge this morning.

    FBI Sends ‘Clear Message’ To Trump, His Supporters: The Swamp Is Real, Rep. Davidson Says

    Alex Berenson: White House Demanded Twitter ‘Kick Him Off Platform’

    The Attempt To Prosecute Donald Trump Is Unleashing More Than Our Political System Can Handle

    Public Trust In The FBI Is Plunging

    Add in the many comments on this site, Jan 6 and the growing intolerance towards those not willing to accept government rules all make me think that the stage is being set for a play that none of us will enjoy.

  3. Sorry Joe. No discussion over logic and facts anymore. If there ever was that much.
    We examine our past and see numerous acts that make no sense to good people. The Bible warned us. Our forefathers warned us. Yuri warned us. We watched it go on with our own two eyes.
    Pa use to say if you do something for 10 years. It’s a lifestyle. Welcome to stupid running things.
    And who can make war against the beast? Says the Bible. It won’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t grasp your logic. And it doesn’t feel hypocrisy or shame. And would kill you for the crime of being white, all the while telling you it’s to getting rid of racism.
    But you have it right in my estimation. Because you’re a well-armed optimist.
    P.S. I can’t tell if they’re doing this to make Trump popular again? Let’s face it, Trump did a lot of good things. That got stopped 20 mikes after emperor Senilius stubbled through his acceptance speech.
    And absolutely nothing of substance to stop them.
    The communist on high are either facing Trump or DeSantis. DeSantis could actually dismantle the swamp if he brings his own team with him. And there’s signs he’s doing just that. Trump will play his ego again.
    I’m just going to take the long view that stupid never sleeps.

  4. Heavily Paraphrased conversation with neighbor:
    Him: what do you think of the FBI raid on Trump?
    Me: Stupidly over the top, just one more sketchy accusation, completely against historical precedent of treatment of former presidents.
    Him: So you think he’s above the law?
    Me: No
    Him: But he promised to lock up Hillary and everyone cheered.
    Me: Because she actually committed crimes.
    Him: [blank look] What crimes?
    Me:……. Seriously?……

    Totally different worlds.

    • And a lot of that is Trumps fault. He could have dragged the evidence out in front of the world.
      But is ego thought everyone was going to get in line and recognize his greatness.
      He’s either neck deep in the swamp as loyal opposition. Or he’s to stupid to understand how to fight them.
      And what’s the odds your neighbor could feed himself for a month?

      • Feeding for a month? I’d bet very low. But this is the same guy who doesn’t acknowledge any left-wing violence in the 20th C, it was all just “authoritarian violence.” I may take a week of no food beyond condiments before he can see he was wrong, and I offer a few pounds of lentils. But I also see some cracks with other neighbors; not arguing their side as strongly, listening more quietly, a little more tinge of “trying hard to believe their own words” in their voices. Not a lot, but I think a lot of normies are waking up to the fact that the pols in power are NOT trying to solve the problems, but break things badly, and permanently. They can’t be this badly wrong so consistently out of pure incompetence.

        • “They can’t be this badly wrong so consistently out of pure incompetence.”
          Absolutely they can, bro. The insane have made a lifestyle of their greed. And normies have made a lifestyle of ignoring the obvious.
          They can’t turn it off. Ask a junkie why he needs to get high? You will hear the same excuses. Some might even be less ignorant than the ones we get from congress.
          The real question is how long you’re going to have to fatten up your neighbors?
          After a few pounds of lentils? They’ll know where the lentils are.
          I bet they would rat you out for some MRE’s. If they don’t see it now, they won’t see it later.
          Don’t make Yuri say, I told you so.

  5. Uh, Joe…

    Who’s the delusional one, again?

    I submit that it’s you, this time (a rare occurrence).

    Didn’t a wise man once say that it is irrational to expect people to be rational?

    • That’s fair.

      I get a little frustrated when I see people yelling past each other. Each having points worthy of discussion but apparently no interest in, or perhaps ability to, actually discuss things.

    • Ya, but not for people like Joe trying to improve society in a polite way.
      We would just be knocking each other in the head with rocks. (My way of doing things.) Ignorant rock throwing generally prevails in the end anyway. But one has to applaud the effort!

  6. Correia’s law of internet arguing:
    “Internet arguing is a spectator sport. You argue to convince the undecided and give ammo to those on your side. Do not expect to change your opponent’s mind as you cannot sway the willfully ignorant. Internet arguing is only worth it when there is an audience. The contestants do not get a vote, the audience decides who wins.“
