I agree to a certain extent. I don't care for the man, but I do care for democracy. He won the way the system currently works. I do think he's overly
whiny for my taste. He strikes me as a giant toddler. This election was the final thing for me that has disenchanted me from politics, and quite
frankly every day citizens are disenchanting me from the USA society overall at this point.
All I can find myself doing anymore is shaking my head.
I usually don't even partake in these threads because I feel like they all become a trolling match. Especially in the mud pit. "oh you're a doodoo
head and dumb, oh yeah well YOU'RE A yellow snowball and REALLY DUMB!" *insert snarky "clever" meme here*
followed up by "Now the adults are in control"
I've never seen any real adults behave the way I've seen a lot of people on internet forums behaving recently.
That's how I feel about reading most of this back and forth between political people.
But, in general, the whole "snowflake" term really gives me a giggle, because.....on some levels we really are all like little snowflakes. Are we not
all unique in some way on some level no matter how minute?
It just confuses me to no end. When you're raised the way I was, it's a real shock to grow up and get into the real world to see that not everyone was
raised to do the right thing, be honorable, and be truthful in life. How that happens I have no idea because to me there is no other way to live. But
clearly many men and women were raised to be nasty, rude, and just obnoxious. Many seem to make it on corruption alone, which is why we have the
volatile environment where citizen is pitted against citizen..........crazy.
Another thing I've noticed is the "WELL THEY DID IT SO NOW WE ARE GOING TO, HOPE YOU LIKE IT!"
Uhh....... Imagine this scenario please, and if it's not a great comparison, well, take me out to pasture because I don't know what is:
A mother has 3 daughters and 1 son. So 4 kids total. She works very hard, and saves up money to buy the two younger ones both a brand new, lets say
Now, we all know how CHILDREN behave, especially siblings. Lets call the middle child Catherine. She gets mad at her youngest sister Anna, and decides
to bend her spokes and wreck her bike in general. Anna gets angry, and goes to her older sister, let's call her Ellie. Ellie, angered by her younger
sister doing such a disrespectful thing to the youngest sister, goes and destroys Catherines bike as revenge for her baby sister Anna......
Now, Catherine likely never destroyed any of Annas things again after that, however, how do you think the mother would feel in this scenario? She
works hard, she tries to lead by example, but children react how children react. Now shes spent money on 2 new bikes for the children she loves, only
for the children she loves and wants to be happy to destroy those things because they were mad at EACH OTHER. The mother would likely feel she had
thrown a decent ammount of money down the drain. The girls didn't know that the mom was planning to save to buy the younger brother a bike as well,
and now with the repairs that will need to be made, well..... See how the 3rd parties to the original problem got punished here?
My point is, that is how CHILDREN who are IGNORANT behave. Not educated adults. Come on now.
I honestly feel like that's exactly what's going on right now with society because of this strong political divide. Nanana boo boo what you did we
shall do too! All the while, nothing good coming out of that path of reasoning.
I understand why I align more as a centrist now.
Oh well. Don't mind my few ramblings.
