This digital periodical will question the ridiculous nature of those in power constantly trying to convince us they have our best interests at heart. Thinking the worse about those you govern won’t endear them to you. Being fawned over by those with paid access is not flattery Senators and Congress members. Manipulating the haters and the willfully ignorant among the citizenry to trouble people who’ve done them no harm blots your soul. I have witnessed God’s word in truth as he seeth that everybody’s day will come…
Article 7: Didn’t See That Coming? Really?
Let’s explore that ‘Venn Diagram’ before the ‘news media’ narrative is added to the history books as the de facto explanation for what just occurred in the United States midterm elections. Follow me back to 2016 and the death of U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia. Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of my state of residence Kentucky decided to hold the seat vacant until the Presidential election of 2016 was decided. Mitch McConnell’s guy won and a Republican Associate Justice was added to the court. Those that know me know where I’m going with this, but of course I’ll lay it out for newcomers to my site.
Senator McConnell got his justice and something he entirely didn’t calculate in his foolhardy equation. The picture of cheaters mocking the process. Know something, a lot of Americans play to win, but the point McConnell waved off is that Americans love to win within the rules of the game! Now I don’t have a problem with the Amy Coney Barrett seat because U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died while President Trump still had time on his term.
Funny how decisions are made by so-called ‘smart’ politicians and none seem to envision all possible outcomes. Nobody likes a cheater. Who cares that McConnell stole a U.S. Supreme Court seat? Apparently a lot of people did. This resulted in the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. Popular decision anyone? I believe this one thing which applies to all situations. ‘People in power think they are untouchable. Even if you’re insulated like the U.S. Supreme Court from considering the impact of their rulings. Voters of America across diverse states sent them a message that what they do with their bodies and pregnancy is not for the Supreme Court to decide’.
‘Spot a cheater hide your water’. Republicans started actually going after children. Republicans started believing that lecturing Black people about slavery and the lasting effects of it was right for them to redefine. Critical Race Theory anyone? Republicans started attacking the LGBTQ community. Republicans started sending their buffoons into council, library and college meetings to ban books. Oh, Republicans vote against raising the minimum wage every chance they get. Yeah that’s a good look. First you force women to have children then you artificially keep wages low so they are never able to support them properly.
A Venn Diagram simply shows the relationship among seemingly different things. An eighth grade American Government class project could’ve foreseen the outcomes of the 2022 midterm elections with all the negative things Republicans believe should be forced upon Americans. The great Republican Senatorial Leader Mitch McConnell didn’t see that coming? I find that comforting. Why? Because his vaunted ‘win’ is the only motivation in his bag of tricks should make Democrats put up a picture of him on the wall in their national headquarters! I would.
I got you. I’ll elaborate. When a child wants what he or she wants with allowance money most parents just allow it to happen. Usually after the child buys it other desires inevitably take space in their minds. Most parents teach their children that needs and wants are two vastly different things. Wants aren’t judged very deeply because the instant gratification to possess it usually wins out. Needs though are considered more carefully as this category demands it as scarce resources must be allocated correctly to address specific situations that enhance life.
Take it to mean what you will as my observation is this. Those obsessed with the acquisition of power after attaining it always seem to complain the heavy weight of it causes their feet to drag and their shoulders to droop.
Democrats I am pleased that your political party has the right approach to governing. Lose the ‘mimic’ stick. Don’t do the same crap like the Republicans. Authorized King James version of the Holy Bible Proverbs 3:31…Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways. Knock off the gerrymandering stupidity. Set up the game fairly for everybody. Remember Americans don’t like cheaters.
Didn’t see that coming Republicans? I know you didn’t.
Let’s pray the Republicans continue avoiding American Government as if it’s an elective. It is.
