Teh Squeaky Wheel
Just now caught Mac’s little word play on yesterday’s thread GIF.
Glad you made it back safely and hope the motorcyclist you all assisted is doing okay. (Good on your boys, too.)
That blog you’re looking for doesn’t ring even a dim bell for me; hope you find it.
A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!
The range of weather we encountered on our Grand Canyon trip was truly astounding. When we arrived it was chilly, with 50 mph wind gusts. The next few days were in the 50-60’s with light winds. Then the last day it snowed and the winds were 25-30 mph with stronger gusts. We had beautiful days for hiking down into the canyon and took a metric carp-tonne of pictures.
Good on you and your family, Paddy, for helping out that motorcycle rider. Hope he’ll be OK.
Another shooting, this time in Tennessee, that the media and their activist partners have decided must be discussed and reported on so that commonsense gun control can be implemented.
I’ve had no luck finding the blog I was looking for, but looking through my notes and all, I reread a bunch of stuff after the 2004 election. Man, the Left really really really hated George Bush and those that voted for him over that dick Kerry. Here’s a blast from the past by Fatwa and Brenda’s favorite Abbeywebber that popped onto teh wheel for a brief visit:
“I weep for this country and especially for my home, the South. Our nation is in the hands of fascists, fundamentalists and corporate ideologues, and the South is apparently a citadel for the criminally insane. It’s a stronghold of fundamentalism, where thousands upon thousands have been duped into believing that Bxxx is really a conservative, when in fact, he’s not…The level of contempt I feel for Bxxx supporters is beyond what I can find words to describe. There shall be no compromise with their ilk; they are my sworn enemy, an object of scorn and fierce contempt.”
Part of my response back: “I used to listen for the common expressions between the different voices in our country. Used to think that even if there were disagreements, that there could still be serious and civil debate, that we were all Americans with a common history, could come to a consensus, and move on. Viewing the American Left over the last several months, Im leaning more to the side that says “Nope, that aint possible.” And reading your thoughts, which match a lot of what other liberals are spewing on the internet and in print, Im not even inclined to try…You’ve drawn a line. For my vote and support for Bush, Im an object of contempt and hatred; in your eyes, Im your enemy. Fine.”
Who knew it would only get worse?
I think the post you quoted is an important reminder for those times the far Left attempts to make the current situation all about Trump, rather than the divisiveness they have brought about, or claims that things were the same for Obama.
