Twitter is an interesting place. I follow a lot of news people as well as technical accounts. Much of what I hear there is of a political nature. One Fox Business personality that I had been following (@LouDobbs) constantly refers to democrats as “Dimms”. Ok. Time out. This isn’t a grade school playground. Feel free to call them “Dems” if you want to abbreviate but calling them Dimms just makes you look stupid.
I unfollowed him today. I’m sure he would be heart-broken if he knew. Hey, I have to draw the line somewhere. In the interest of full disclosure, I might add that I detest the democrats. I think they are evil. They’ve virtually destroyed this country, and continue in deliberate attempts to do so. But that’s no excuse for childishness name-calling.
This was written right after President Obama’s initial election. It’s doubly true now that he’s been re-elected, with half the nation in utter disbelief that anyone in their right mind would give this man a second term.
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.“
