Out Of Touch


In this season of joy and peace isn't it about time the GOP caught up with the remainder of Americans? We find ourselves in the midst of a national divide which is tearing the United States apart, while the GOP, or what's left of it, continues to swim against the current.

Most recently, polls have shown 79% of Republicans approve the construction of a
border wall, while 59% of Americans in general disapprove of such construction. A prime example of the different direction the GOP is taking from mainstream America. Furthermore, 86% of Republicans approve of President Trump's performance while 38% of American's in general share their approval. The GOP is clearly traveling the road less taken.

Whether or not Christ would approve of our president's performance is a prediction I'll leave to those professed Christians, some of whom believe adultery is not a bar to evangelicalism. Meanwhile, I'll remain in the disapproval group from a political standpoint.

In the meantime, here's wishing one and all a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Hanukkah, Season's Greetings and Happy Holidays.

Prejudice cannot be conquered with logic, logic didn't instill it and logic cannot eradicate it.

86% of American Republicans approve of Trump's performance? They probably think "Trump in the White House" is a reality show.....it might as well be......Good Grief!!!

Take some deep breaths of cold, crisp air and sing your heart out. Happy Solstice to you and yours.

Our fearless leader has delivered his season's greetings to America ( and the rest of the world! ) with his shutdown …. and a surrender of Syria to his pal in Russia. He might just as well have tweeted ' F U to all and to all a good night'. The nation is not feeling jolly and bright. We can only pretend.

Here's to you!

    Quoting hiramhankwilliam:
    YOUR sheep chimed in on que.

    HE REMAINS OUR POTUS.

    UES THE NEW YEAR TO FIND SOME ONE TO APPOSE HIM IN 2020.

    SO FAR YOU ARE DOING NOTHING TO RID THE NATION OF MANGO AN RETURN THE WH TO THE

    DEMOCRATS . YOU KNOW THEM, THE ONES THAT REALLY CARE ABOUT A MERICA
Perhaps you'd best re-read my words. I was talking about you and the other children following the Pied Piper. Why? We'll never know. I suspect, however, the loyalty to our President is predicated on dislike for Democrats and educated people rather than in favor of a capable leader. It is, of course, your choice, but demeaning others in no way enhances your status. The practice of critical thinking might be a suggestion, but that kind of cogitation might lead you away from the sheepish following of the piper and that would be disastrous for your political paradigm.
