    I laughed at a Dem senator talking about "brewskies" at the Kavanaugh hearings.

    An Iowa man raised over 2 million dollars for a children's hospital and a reporter tried to smear him with a tweet from his teenage years. The reporter did get canned.

    Put me in the Stubborn Defiance Club.
    Years ago, on another web site, I wrote a fairly long essay backing the Iraq War. Years later, as that endeavor spun out of control, some on the Left began to boot that post back up to the top and excoriated me. At first, I said that, well, things had changed and I was rethinking my position, an honest assessment.
    But that wasn't enough for the leftists I came to call The Hyenas. No apology, no statement ever satisfied their ravenous appetite to correct me, to humiliate my views. Keep in mind, these people were rebooting an old post that was over a decade old at the time!
    It was at this time, I noticed a shift in the attitude of the liberals/leftists. No longer were they satisfied to argue a point and then say, "But I'd buy you a beer if I ran into you!"
    No, in fact one particularly rabid nutjob said his mother was a psychiatrist or some such thing and she had read my posts and concluded that I was suffering from early dementia (which I assure you I'm not). All this because I took a political position with which they disagreed and I had even changed my mind about.
    These people are dangerous. There is a mass psychosis at work here. We're seeing it with the most vehement anti-Trumpers. They're irrational, violent, unhinged, literally off their rockers.
    I thought Tucker Carlson put it well: "Never surrender to the mob."
    Good advice. I will never surrender to these people, in any way, shape or form.

    For those old enough to remembers Chairman Moa's Little Red Book there is the answer. Bands of young Communist beat people in the streets for their past transgressions.

    I read the comments in that video. I'm afraid for the future of this world.

    I consider it a badge of honor to be attacked and condemned by perverts.

    Whether political perverts like dim-o-kratz, or sexual perverts like LGBTQ, I welcome their attacks on me. As long as they are attacking me, I know that I'm on the right path.:D

    Imagine if we actually treated people in the LGBT community with an ounce of respect, how many would ditch the Democrats and vote Republican.

    But I guess that's asking too much.

    Thanks. My grandfather fought in Korea, and I was raised by Scoutmasters whom were all veterans of the Cold War. I learned early on the poison of Communism. I pray that I live to see it eradicated completely.

    Sounds like you need a hug.

    Come here to Magic Kingdom where it's 85F with fresh air from both sides of the Florida peninsula.
    I'll get a very gayous Mickey to give you a hug.

    Don't really care. I'm just out in the world doing stuff, not really trying to keep up appearances or compete. Gotta break some eggs...

    A very fine declaration, thanks for the post. It is our current misfortune to harbor so many Left Leaning Americans. They want free things, open Borders and defend gun control? They are supporting the Socialist politics of today.

    Basically, yes, what he said. If you are offended by my honest, non-malicious comments, you are weak and manipulative, and are welcome to GTFO!

    Those who are offended by every little thing, and who thrive on bullying others through the "cancel culture" - they are incapable of building ANYTHING! They could never build or maintain a country, an economy, a business. They are parasitic losers attached to Western Culture. Screw 'em!
