I have been admonished not to mention Donald Trump's victory at an upcoming visit of mine owing to an attendee's wife being severely distraught over the election results. "Please don't poke the beehive," hubby pleads.
I completely understand this request, and I have promised to not discuss politics under any circumstances. It was a terribly long, nightmarish eight years that I felt extremely disheartened and feared for the future of the country. Especially after Obama's re-election; good Lord, how could we have given this socialist ANOTHER FOUR YEARS to destroy what's left of the Founding Father's vision for America.
And my fears were not invalid. Obamacare has so weakened our economy since no self respecting employer would ever consider hiring a full time worker, lest his bottom line get eaten away by these punitive taxes (yes, taxes, according to Chief Justice John Roberts). Many previously full time workers have had their hours slashed so that employers can remain in business.
Yes, now the shoe is on the other foot, and the liberals across the country are fit to be tied. There is great wailing and gnashing of teeth over the prospect that Donald Trump will overturn many of Obama's economy wrecking initiatives and his transfer of wealth schemes. Barry promised to remake America, and now it appears that The Donald is un-making those remakings of Barry's. Repealing and replacing Obamacare is a great start.
But the liberals will not take this lying down. They will not go quietly into that good night. Not on your life. A communist leftist organization 'Grab Your Wallet' has called on Americans to boycott any business that has anything to do with Donald Trump or his company affiliations. L.L. Bean co-owner and board member Linda Bean gave a few measly bucks of her own personal money to the Trump campaign, and now these slime balls are calling for a complete boycott of L.L. Bean.
I don't dismiss this boycott as frivolous. In fact, I encourage conservatives to emulate this tactic: since they are boycotting conservative interests (and L.L. Bean is by no means conservative, they want to sell their popular 'Bean Boots' to both liberals and conservatives), conservatives should boycott liberal interests at every turn. What's good for the goose is good for the gander: if you are an employer and you find out that one of your employees is liberal, fire them immediately. If you know of a business that is owned by liberals who push their liberal agenda via their company, boycott them. Ben & Jerry's ice cream comes to mind - and unless you are a sumo wrestler who needs this product to remain competitive, stay clear of it.
And don't stop there: if a member of your family is liberal, give it your best shot to convert them to sanity. If all efforts fail, and they still insist on voting Democratic, wearing Birkenstocks and eating Ben & Jerry's ice cream, shun them. Don't go to their birthday parties, weddings, bar mitzvahs or even funerals.
Trump Derangement Syndrome is raging out of control. Rather than just sitting back and watching it play out (to our detriment), we need to fight back: fight fire with fire. Boycott Democrat/liberal interests where ever they are.
