I’ve got so many random thoughts going around in my head, as I’m sure you do, I have to write a few more of them down.
Somebody could make big money doing ethnic make-overs — turning white people into “people of color” so that they can get the benefits of “diversity” and victimhood. You know me…I think that is the psychological reason behind all these tattoos. It’s one way for white people to escape their “white privilege” and other stigmas from being white. Taken to its extreme (as many have), many white people are turning black…sort of an indigo ink black. It’s working, at least from appearances.
It’s entirely true that as an adult you are paid back by your children (or other people’s children) for all your childish sins. I won’t go into details but, geez, kids can be destructive.
As many people are saying, I think this could be a long, hot summer where gangs (should we just now call them “neighborhoods”?) of black hoodlums, flush with racist grievance toward whites, unleash their violence. Expect Matt Lauer to say this is all our fault (and much of it indeed is, but not how he means).
Is there anyone more pathetic than Jeb Bush? I read a piece the other day that says he speaks nothing but Spanish at home, once checked “Spanish” as his ethnicity on some form, and thinks illegal aliens are being “loving” for breaking the law and flooding over the border. We may laugh at Bruce Jenner’s attempt at sex change, but no less ridiculous is another white person, such as Jeb Bush, trying to go native and change his ethnicity. Expect Scott Walker or Rubio to be on the ticket (or, likely, to make up the ticket). But this Bush clown, despite his money bags, isn’t going anywhere.
Would Donald Trump be such a bad president? I won’t vote for Jeb Bush, no matter what. The benefit of Trump is that we all know he’s a con man, a marketeer, and a loud-mouthed opportunist. He doesn’t try to hide it behind vapid and dishonest “hope and change” language. Yes, such an approach is further dumbing-down our expectations. But with the Democrats being the party of evil and the Republicans being the party of corrupt wimps, Donald Trump doesn’t look so bad by comparison. If politics is to be no more than a cult of personality, Trump certainly has that.
Quick: Name for me the focus of Christianity. Do it in one word, two at most. Forgiveness? Redemption? Hope? Love? Charity? All those are good choices. But the Pope, the leader of the Catholic Church, is choosing warmed-over Marxism in its many guises. Makes you want to cry. Oh, perhaps not so much that the Church has another bad Pope. Wouldn’t be the first time. What I find most disconcerting is the number of Catholics who insist that we’ve got it all wrong, that our impression is a false one forwarded and shaped by a liberal press. Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt.
