If anyone thought yesterday was a box full of Ex-Lax for me to digest, wait until you read what happened today.
I was in King Soopers supermarket today when I saw the latest issue of Time magazine, which featured Ronald and Nancy Reagan, along with a caption with read: “What happened to that party?”
Upon glancing at Reagan, I said, “After everything Reagan did to the mentally ill, that bastard got what was coming to him.”
There was a woman ahead of me in line who appeared to be late sixties or early seventies, and she had the nerve to look back at me and reply.
Knowing full well what I meant, she replied, “I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy.”
“Oh, yeah? Well, after all of the discrimination I’ve faced due to my traumatic brain damage, I do.”
“Well, everyone has their own opinion,” she stated in a pathetic attempt at ending the conversation.
“Oh no, you don’t. You right-wingers have been censoring us for decades, and now you’re going to shut up and listen. I’m sick and tired of those who believed W., called people like me a terrorist sympathizer because our opposition to the Iraq War, and then buck for sympathy after some idiot who believed that liar in the White House got was coming to him for not paying attention to where he was driving. I had meningitis as an infant, and all I got from your kind was that I must have been on drugs. Yet, you coddle these killers. Reagan cut funds for mental health programs and that traitor got what he deserve.”
“How do you know how I vote?”
“Through the course of this conversation,” I replied.
It was then that checker opened another register so that it would all end; kind of like when boxing referee, Mills Lane, would cut in between the contestants to abruptly stop the fight.
Another wonderful thing which happened today was when I commented on the price of gas, which the middle class white woman didn’t particularly appreciate, as anyone who was there could see the expression on her face.
“Damned right-wingers blamed President Obama for the price of gas and now won’t give him any credit when it’s low.”
She gave me a hateful look as she rose her passenger’s-side window, which made me smile.
While it’s OPEC which determines the price of oil, the Democrats are always blamed when gas prices hit over two dollars.
I went into my 2000 Plymouth Breeze and left that gas station.
Right-wing hypocrisy is downright treasonous, as they censor any opinion which comes from the left or simply tell them to leave the country. Yet, these hypocrites say give the ‘everyone has a right to their opinion’ white flag when a liberal gets in his face and debunks his twisted opinion, which was based on misinformation he acquired from a media source which was bought by a right-wing terrorist years ago.
One hint I can give you is that his television station airs the longest cartoon comedy about a family which consists of an underachiever, an idiot who somehow never loses his job at the nuclear facility, an infant who has never learned to talk, and a blue-haired MILF who needs Valium.
Right-wingers who oppose social programs should either hire those who are dependent upon them and pay them enough for them enough to remain free from those very programs which they (those of the right-wing persuasion) with opportunity for advancement, or just shut up.
Right-wingers need to admit when they’ve been exposed.
Right-wingers need to have a soul.
This is what President Lincoln wrote about liberty:
This is a world of compensations; and he who would be no slave, must consent to have no slave. Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it.
–April 6, 1859 Letter to Henry Pierce (source:http://www.abrahamlincolnonline.org/lincoln/speeches/pierce.htm)
I am willing to listen to anyone, but there’s going to be twelve rounds the second I’m called a Communist or a terrorist sympathizer.
Fuck you. I’ll take anyone down in an argument the moment that I’m accused as such-and I do.
A word of warning: I have anvils inside both of my Everlast boxing gloves, so it might not be a good idea to challenge someone like me, as I fight as fairly as a conservative treats rape victims and those who struggle with disabilities.
Those on the right quickly realize that there is no point no debating someone who might as well be the Floyd Mayweather, Jr. in the world of heated political debate.
Don’t like abortions? Don’t have one.
Don’t like birth control? Fuck her in the ass-no babies come out through there.
Don’t want college students to have sex prior to marriage? Read the seventh chapter of 1 Corinthians and kiss my unwiped ass, as even that chapter states that it is better for them to marry than to “burn with passion.”
A conservative who has any respect for the military would want to make sure that every child, whether that child is considered to be a genius or struggles with a learning disability, has an equal chance at college-and then make sure that everyone gets there.
Remember that Thomas Edison gave us the electric light and Albert Einstein gave us the Theory of Relativity-which we now have come to realize has more applications than we first knew.
Society discarded those boys, too.
In the end, anyone who wants someone who was left behind to feel sympathy for someone whose political career consistently demonstrated his contempt for those who struggled with the mind should keep their mouths shut when one of those same people voice glee, as it’s simply the boomerang affect at work.
Should one state to himself that I lack any credibility due to the vocabulary with which that one chose to take offense, let it be known that the fact that the sources which I cited to discredit that one’s bigotry demonstrate that those like myself who choose express ourselves in such a way so as to not be arrested for what we might do otherwise, since everyone has a limit to that which they can tolerate before excuses are made and regrets are voiced, should just bow their head in obvious defeat and begin to give those whom they chose to discriminate against in the past the benefit of the doubt.
Understand and assist these people, lest misfortune impose a life sentence on those who refuse to bestow compassion and equality to those who have struggled with a developmental disability.
Remember the price Ronald Reagan paid for all he did to those who needed his help, then shudder.
