On Patriotism

And this ...

...for the holier-than-thou-crowd crowing about troops with hurt feelings.

Repuglicans started this whole negative lack-of-dialogue crap.

Wannabe "peace celebrities" among repuglican opponents are on their soap boxes with their "We-are-too-polarized-to-communicate-so-we've-got-to-stop-resisting-them" pop-psycho-pretend-statesmanship blather.

It's still too early for that. That time is not here yet. The bouncers still need to do their jobs and throw the bums out. We delude ourselves if we think the time to start acting peaceful, regretful and anxious to stop talking nasty has arrived.

Not yet ....

not yet ... they are still farting in public on purpose.

Still need to be bounced out of the building before trying to talk wisdom and sense with them in "dialogue."

That'll happen when they are all out in the cold or in treatment.

I don't know who slept thru civics class but ...

I do know that constant bellowing at the electorate on how they should vote at the federal level is about as effective as bellowing at the customers in the Elk Snout Tavern.

We're all bellowed out and tired of being bellowed at.

Faked wisdom of telling or educating someone else on how they should vote is the tired and proven Democratic path to loss of elections.

Genuinely pissing voters off is where it's at.

There is nothing more powerful in arousing a national sense of indignation than to have a bunch of mom and pop towns and villages start waking each other up with infectious resolutions. Outdoes political educating and bellowing every time.

We need more folks to drop the pretense that one did not sleep during civics class - validated by the offer of a political "should" which merely reveals a memorizing of cliffnotes instead of paying attention.

Democrats are still learning this lesson.

Rovian types figured it out long before they ever launched the stimulation of political anger in this country.
