Mr. Toupee’s Rodeo

Mr. Toupee has wrangled voters like the Clutter Cowgirl wrangles disorder.

You want to know why people voted for him it’s as easy as pie: you don’t go around calling people a “basket of deplorables” without getting backlash.

The New York Times is partly the culprit because they pay good money to writers to publish editorials that brandish every white person in America as being a racist.

I fie on Michael Eric Dyson and his ilk for this. I fie on the haters who are paid to write editorials in this vein. You haven’t met me–so you have no right judging me.

They’re only alienating the very people who could help whatever cause they’re championing. Liberals who go around labeling people as racists have turned voters into turncoats who fled to the other side.

Thus now we have a president who chose as the EPA chair a guy who is against climate change and SUED the EPA 40 times for its stance that climate change is man-made.

We have a president who is increasing military spending so that soldiers continue to come back from unnecessary wars with missing limbs, PTSD, and the risk for committing suicide.

We have a president who repealed the Dodd-Frank Act that was made law after the 2008 recession to fund the Consumer Finance Protection Agency. Now investment brokerage houses are no longer legally required to act in the best interests of their clients.

So much for not being in the pocket of Wall Street–Mr. Toupee.

My mother called Mr. Toupee a buffoon and yet she still voted for him because she votes along party lines.

In this blog months ago I wrote that no one in our government can help ordinary Americans. I’m not a fan of Republicans and Conservatives–nor am I fan of Democrats and Liberals.

It’s true I must have a sign on my forehead that reads: She’s a Lefty. My mother and two guys were telling each other on Saturday that they voted for Mr. Toupee. One of the guys told me: “I know you didn’t vote for Trump.” Just looking at me he figured this out.

The other guy said: “We shouldn’t be getting attacked because of who we voted for.” This is true. I’ve always told readers in here that I don’t care who you vote for as long as in America you get out and vote.

A perfect storm existed to cause Mr. Toupee to win the election.

In my next blog entry I’ll talk in detail about hate and why it’s corrosive and has burned a whole in the fabric of America.

Let’s face it: people voted for Mr. Toupee. The Democrats and their hatred of so-called White America caused people to run into the arms of Mr. Toupee.

Nobody’s buying what Liberals are selling anymore.

I for one have said “I’m done!” with the hate that goes on.
