And now, a word from the John Birch Society worshiping columnist from my local weekly fishwrap...

http://www.peshtigotimes.net/index.php?id=20529

SAD TODAY

Half of America is sad today, and the other half is glad. It should be no surprise to readers of this column that Yours Truly is among the sad half. Sad and embarrassed that Americans seem to have turned their backs on the ideals of our Founding Fathers, and indeed on the blessings that have made this a great nation.

But more than sad, terrified.

Terrified that some day we will have to explain to our children what the American Dream once was, and where it has gone.

Terrified that we will have to explain to our Maker why we as a nation turned our backs on Him.

Terrified that in the name of religious and ethnic tolerance we Americans will surrender our rights to honor our Maker as we see fit.

Terrified of what the man will do who sat in the White House and watched - in real time - the torture and death of an American ambassador and did nothing, even refused to send the help they called for when it was only half an hour away.

Terrified of what the man will do who on March 27 of this year promised Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. “After my election, I have more flexibility.’’ And they were talking about the issue of missile defense!

Terrified of living in a nation that re-elected the man who would do these things!

Terrified that God will turn His back on our most blessed nation, since we as a nation seem to have turned our backs on Him.

Realize that the elections are over. What will be will be. It is time for healing, time to soothe the fears, halt the accusations and hopefully move on to better things. Time to hope that those elected are not as bad as some of us think, to pray that they will realize they had only the slimmest majority, and that the other half of America disagrees with some of their goals. Time to pray they will not destroy the things we hold dear.

But the terror, for now, remains. Never, ever, has anyone more sincerely prayed to be wrong!

God bless America!


THAT was the MOST satisfying column I've ever read from this woman EVER.

1. Again with the fear of an imaginary Obama

I wonder if this lady is still afraid of getting stood up with coal at Christmas time?

2. What?

She thinks religious and ethnic tolerance means she has to give up her religion? The Benghazi nonsense shows how horribly misinformed she is. I thought newspapers columnists had fact checkers...isn't it irresponsible to print bullshit? Do they not worry about credibility?

4. Oh, she just rejects our reality and replaces it with her own.

I'm sure she's got Faux Noise going 24/7 at her house.

3. I don't supposed it's dawned on her

that what happened to the American dream was that a few rich old fascists stole it from the rest of us.

That would be too much for ask.

6. Hey, I'm from that area too!

I knew before even clicking your link that it was the 'Country Cousin' lady. It used to make my blood boil that she has that huge column every week to spread her views, doing so under the guise of this "sweet ol' lady talkin' 'bout the weather and sharin' recipes." Haha My stepmother had to endure more than her fair share of sputtering and yelling when the paper came in.

It made my day to read her post-election mourning screed. Thanks, TheMightyFavog!

7. Do you remember the one where she said mercury in fish was dangerous to humans

because it contained "a lot of lead." She did that one while I was going to a college known for its natural resource management program. I had many friends in that program. I actually brought the paper back to college with me and showed it to my friends majoring in resource management. After reading the article one of them said, "How does this woman stand to be this goddamn fucking stupid?"
