133. There's no fool like an old fool! One of my Dad's favorite lines

My Dad was fond of saying "There's no fool like an old fool!" when some politician or public figure did or said something egregiously stupid or reactionary. Mind you, my Dad was what was once considered to be moderate conservative, a GOP faction now reduced to being little more than useful-idiot status to aid the Ryans' and the Kochs' reactionary agendas.

Regardless of my Dad's political opinions, I still believe that he was right. Several decades of living can give you experience as to who's who and what's what. Used properly, it gives you the experience to go with the observation to inform you who is lying to you, who is incompetent, and what looks like Bee S.

Figuring out which politicians or broadcasters (secular and religious both) were lying to you isn't that hard or all that time-consuming. I believe anyone with a high school diploma and average intelligence can do it.

My beef with Trump voters is that they had days, weeks, months, and years to figure out that Trump and the Republicans were lying to them and they refused to pick up the tools provided by experience, literacy, and, I'll say it, prayer and meditation to make wiser choices this fall, AND THEY REFUSED TO USE THEM.

My belief about older Trump voters is they go-created what's about to fall on them (And the rest of us too) and they were old enough to know better.
