XXX-30 The Reason for the Opposition

Postby dancuddy » Mon Apr 16, 2018 10:13 am

(will be back in early May)

the opposition has little charity

MY hard-earned dollars to support the lazy
whining
think they are so entitled
because someone kicked their great grandmother
out
of the county
or hung
a son

happens everyday to almost any family
and so we support the rule of law
the law says you must work
no free lunch
no idle decorated cakes in French Bakery windows
no sachertortes
no jiggly minuets or slip-slidin' line dances
and certainly no demitasse cordials
to dazzle your brain with the splendors of stupors

We resent the special status of victimhood
leave the sexual acrobatics in your blinds-drawn bedrooms
no parades of ugly people
no peckersniffs
lave the lavender and let it dry
put it in the family Bible for Gawd's sake
we are moral people who shun unrepentance
who flog those covered with boils and scars
get out
of our society
unfortunate but unrepentant sloths

but it is not so much your sins that repulse us
but
it is our hard-earned----EARNED----money that pays
for your unearned meals
you think because you hunger you deserve a meal
you think because you cry you deserve our hanky
you think because you are born you should get respect
you takers can burn with the chaff
you soil our society
your dirt stinks
you are pus and cuss at us because you are lazy didn't study
don't work
you think you have the right to grab anything everything
you are not our people
you are slime
you commit crime
your sh** is on our shoes

A strong statement that good people should find repulsive. However I wonder how many might read this and say, "Yeah. That's right!"

you are pus and cuss at us because you are lazy didn't study
don't work
you think you have the right to grab anything everything
you are not our people
you are slime
you commit crime
your sh** is on our shoes


The unfortunate aspect of human nautre is we feel better about ourselves if we can identify others as worse off.

Wayne, I grant that the poem is exaggeration but in the last couple of days I have found that the reason for the support of Trump and the terrible faux-conservative values is resentment. There is no arguing with it.

Dan, I read the opening:

MY hard-earned dollars to support the lazy
whining
think they are so entitled


and from here jumped to the entitled members of congress, with their very own special privileges, health care. coverage, security coverage, etc -- privileges that I have no option but to pay for and privileges they continue to make better for themselves while worse for those who do the hard work of living AND privileges that seem, as I read in a commentary today, to propel them to do whatever it takes to get re-elected and keep those privileges vs. doing the practical, realistic, best for America work we "hired" them to do.

And now I'll step off my soap box and give a nod to the opposition who will be applauding the context of this poem, sad to say that such exist

Additionally frustrating for me that there are enough of them with the means to commandeer radio and other news they can then fill with lies that folks like POTUS believe -- ah, the insanity of it all!

A grand poem to cap this round, Dan -- I shall miss your daily posts, as I always do when you take your breaks. But, perhaps you'll return around the time Wayne goes on his break to keep the house abuzz with poetry.

Sounds like a FOX rant. Over-the-top wording to make a point.

Interesting though to see that nine of the top ten states that get more federal dollars in than their citizens pay in taxes are "red" states.

a strong statement of resentment and fear and hatred. i have heard it all before, more now as the pig in the white house has made the most repulsive things acceptable enough to be said out loud. in many cases, it's not the thing said (said before for many years), but the sheer malevolence of the way it's said and the sickness it exposes.
