Watch this video if you watch nothing else. A woman answers a critic of her looks.

Well, I got into it with a cretin from my alma mater.

A senior student had written a long and thoughtful essay about Clemson and how it could be improved. Basically it was about considering others more. Obviously this is not an issue confined to Clemson. She made it abundantly clear that there were many things she appreciated about the school.

I was going to respond to some of her comments but the first post I read that was sent to her caught my hair on fire. I went after that toad with both barrels.

Here is the post a middle-aged man wrote in response:
"Get a job sweetheart. Grow out of your millennial feelings into adult realities. Earn a whole lot of money in the adult world, (who doesn't care what Gannett or USA Today cares about), give it to the school, and then you will have a real voice. In the meantime, you will do better screaming your little brains out in front of Harcombe dining hall. I just love snowflakes, even the orange ones."

My answer back to him:
To begin with she's not your sweetheart. Using that term to someone you don't know is disrespectful and shows a complete lack of manners. In addition, she has every right as do others to voice their concerns whether they have a billion dollars or live paycheck to paycheck.

I would venture to say that the vast number of alums do not have the kind of money you allude to. Many give generously to Clemson and 'generously' is a relative term. Their love and concern for Clemson is as vital as it is immeasureable. Do we now line up people based on their monetary worth and listen to them in that order?

I am not naive and I know money talks. However, Clemson should make sure that the money's words don't drown out that of others. As far as calling someone a snowflake, that seems to be the cute term in vogue to label anyone who raises their voice about an issue. You have trivialized an issue that others do consider important.

You would be wise to remmber that snowflakes don't really disappear. They transform into a different force. Your obvious lack of even a basic respect for others is more telling about you than you may realize.

BTW calling him out on manners is one of the biggest insults you can level at somebody down here.

Watch this little girl get caught in a huge gust of wind.


She was ok. This was about a 60mph gust.
Be careful in this storm.

I live in Middle Of Nowhere, SC and even I

know about FISA, FISA courts, and the shenanigans that can be pulled with it.

Apparently, those morans didn't have a clue.
Hell, I'd use burner phones and never write anything down.

Comey and the FBI were wiretapping Trump not PBO.

He got a FISA warrant so I'll bet the info they have is mind-boggling.
I expect Imelda Marcos would be jealous of the shoes getting ready to drop.

The sound you hear is the shit hitting the fan around Trump and the scramble to CYA.

***I hate FISA. However, use it across the board or stop it. The worm has turned.

Lawd! Trump is really trying to end life on Earth.

White House 'considering direct military action' against North Korea

Probably trying misdirection from Sessions/Russia.
KJU is batshit crazy.

If one more person tells me I need to try to understand Trump voters or

get to know the issues that concern them, I will dance all over they heads.

I have lived with and am related to many of these people, and at the bottom of it all for many, they are just mad. They want to get 'theirs' back from everybody who took it from them. They think the only reason they aren't rolling in the good life is that immigrants, POC and whoever else got it.

What 'It' consists of is some amorphous basket of things they think they are entitled to.

Before the election, I talked to them about losing the ACA, SS, Medicare, clean water, and gawd knows whar else. They would not listen. They did not believe me.

I quoted the Bible them and they shrugged. They turned their backs on every religious and American value they had so loudly thrown about for years.


I will not coddle them or give them one more inch. Believe me I tried.

If I knew what would work to let them see a glimmer of what is happening, I might still try. I don't think watching a nuclear explosion in the distance would matter to them.

So, for those of you who still want to try. Have at it. I have been around this for YEARS.

They can go to hell.

Edit to add: I kept hearing that I didn't know how mad Trumpkins were.
Well, I am pissed beyond all measure. They ain't seen mad yet. Touch SS or Medicare.
