It's official - We've parted ways over politics
« on: December 05, 2017, 03:58:40 PM »
Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor??  No I say.  This thread is an absolute hoot to read if you reverse the names Trump and Obama.  Projection at its finest, this turkey missed Thanksgiving by this  :thumbs: much  DUmbasses are REC'ing this to the tune of 238 at the moment and it has over 120 replies when last I browsed.  They are indeed a sorry group of sad sacks.

It's official - We've parted ways over politics
I've tried every which way to understand the hate that has consumed what used to be my brother.

I've always considered him the smartest one of us.... with several different kinds of intelligence. He was gifted at birth with book smarts, mechanical ability, a great sense of humor, and a heart in the right place. The man he grew into made me honored to be his sister.

He had a heart bypass around the same time Barack Obama TRUMP was running for president. For a long time I blamed the change on the bypass. I've seen people become angry and agitated for a long time after bypass... sometimes years. But this was different. It became toxic. He acquired Obama TRUMPderangement syndrome to the point it was difficult to have even a family business conversation with him that didn't veer off into a rant again Barack Obama.TRUMP

About 2 years ago there came an even uglier edge to his comments. A racism I am ashamed exists in my own family. He supported Trump OBAMA full bore and still makes no excuses for it. He told me "today Trump OBAMA should dissolve the Congress."

It was the last straw. I started crying. I told him all of the above in quiet tones. I told him I don't know if it was the bypass or that Trump has made him feel bold enough to speak out racism I never knew he had, but he's barely recognizable as my brother anymore. I told him I don't understand the anger and hatred. I told him he only has one life and it's about over. He's over 70 yrs old. He's had 3 heart attacks. His last one could be any time. He deserves more happiness in his old age. I could not stop crying.

He wasn't reachable. He yelled, he called me horrid names. He left.

This was a week ago. I have barely stopped crying since. My husband is beside himself.... wants to fix it. He can't. It is what it is.

I want to hate the architects of hate radio, and the politics of this age. They stole my brother from me. My only brother.

I want to hate them. But I can't. I just want my brother back. While he breathes on this earth, I have hope.

This post is in honor of all of us who have lost someone out of our lives because insanity has taken over the day. Nearly all of us have lost someone dear. If you have, I hope you will remember them here. Let them not be lost forever. Let us try to find hope.

I suspect the majority of them never fully recovered from BDS.  They are so predictable.  As Dean Wormer stated:





Should one a man of wisdom meet
who points out faults and gives reproof,
who lays a hidden treasure bare,
with such a sage should one consort.
Consorting so is one enriched
and never in decline.

<bunch of BS>

Perhaps you should try to understand his position in regards to you. I'm sure he does not spout "hate" as you call it. He just disagrees with you. That counts as "hate" in your book.  Heart bypass probably does not have anything to do with it unless he got nailed with a big bill that he has to pay while your type get free medicaid.

That would piss any sane person off. Hell it pisses me off and I ain't even involved. If it wasn't for people like him and me, and our insurance giving cover for the skimpy medicaid/medicare reimbursement rate, YOUR damn taxes would be way higher.  Yes yours. Mine. Everyone's.  Fact is medicaid is the big driver of medical costs. (I give a pass to medicare cause those folks actually paid into it) 

Ask any hospital admin. They will tell you.

You said he was the smart one so I assume he has a good job. Might not be a good idea to piss him off cause you might need him to loan you some money later on... which seems to happen to you dummies quite often.

5 cents please.

Wait!!!!  I got an idea!!!! You should go on to the Dr. Phil show. At least they will pay you something for spouting your insanity.

Shouldn't you be charging another 5 cents, seeing that the last sentence is another idea totally?
