I am seriously flabberghastted at the willful ignorance of some

It's like a twisted fairytale. The ugly witch mean step mother tells you not to go out into the woods or a wolf may eat you. But she's totally unreliable. And so you snuggle up by the fire with your favorite auntie with the 3 fingers on one hand. She tells you about the wolf, but her stories are so good, and she smells like fresh cedar boughs and milk. She even has a pretty wolf fur hat!

Lots of good democratic aunties have been valiantly trying to tell you about the wolf. Some have jumped up and down, but all you see is the ugly step mother, believing they are both just joking in order to keep you from getting your jumper dirty in the big bad woods.

1. I used to think it was willful ignorance. Now I think it's willful dissimulation.

Are you angry at Sanders? There's so much anger here today it's depressing.

12. sorry if the metaphor escaped you.

let me help - old witchy step mom - repubs
sweet aunt - real democrats
sweet ignorance - its all a simple question of laundry

If that's still too 'weird' for you, I simply can not help. Just skip this thread and reply in another. It shouldn't matter which thread you choose. Just say it - over and over. That ought to do it!

13. The wolf is a metaphor for that fearful reality behind that tree/curtain

There are many good free stories on line - I check out youtube - and I love being read to sleep, even as an old person. Bernie is not the wolf in the story - neither is Hillary. It is a serious Wolf!!! Bite 'cha!

7. You Nailed It! But They Say Ignorance Is Bliss!!!

But this time, IGNORANCE is going to bring us a NIGHTMARE! I watch/listen to alternative news and KNOW this country is walking right to the edge of a cliff. I have friends from other countries who are ASTOUNDED by what's going on in this country and THEY TOO are flabbergasted!

The number one question I'm asked is "why is your voting so messed up and crooked" and all I can say is that TPTB have convinced too many people that there is NO PROBLEM!

We ARE going to pay dearly for what we've let them get away with, but I can no longer try to reason with people who are so willing to accept and make excuses for what I'm sure most of us KNOW is simply CRIMINAL!

We ARE going to really pay dearly!

9. Then your favorite auntie takes off her mask & it's revealed that she's not your aunt, but your

uncle pretending to be your aunt.

+3 million more votes.

Or, maybe I need to read this OP again when I'm a bit more stoned.
