What does it all mean?

Matt Purple - Do You Hear the Deplorables Sing?

The Orange Revolution is now victorious, and everything will have to change. The reality is stark: many of our fellow countrymen were so desperate to force political change that they detonated a neutron bomb. Itís a Jacobin impulse - burn it all down and start anew - and it will compel a response from our leaders. Our foreign policy, shipping soldiers overseas to fight in futile wars, is no longer tenable. The protectionist volumes of yesteryear have been reopened in a puff of dust. The Wall Street Journal's flavor of conservatism, with its loosey-goosey borders and free flow of capital - whatever its merits - has been repudiated. Perhaps we won't see that change reflected in policy, but our politics will be transformed - they'll have to be.

Brother jg [pointed out that dagny's and my opposition to Trump drove him to defend him.

The leftist butthurt on my feed is likewise turning me into Ann Coulter.

I do respect true believers. A good friend from my youth is an animal masseuse and psychic. She writes:

The Animals say: "What you are experiencing as humans is the natural death of your individual and individual group consciousness. This is reflective of the Earth's own evolvement and life cycle. Death must come before birth. If you identify as an individual or with your perceived group first before your entire species you are part of the resistance to this cycle. And what is resisted only continues -- this is the natural way of energy on our planet. Your best option is neutral inclusion regardless of difference. The collective awaits your mindful presence. We have much work to do together."

I knew you'd all enjoy it.

Telling that she felt the need to include the word "mindful" in the sentence, "The collective awaits your - presence."

I suspect your mind will not be so prominently featured when it comes to the next sentence, "We have much work to do together."

As for leftist butthurt on my feed, there are unexpected benefits to being an outspoken anti-Progressive 365 days a year - it seems that they really have all unfriended me! ;)
