Tossed Out


Sorry, students, about your being shocked about the election. I know it’s unsettling about facing reality, especially if you lived in la-la land all your life. What you have been hit with is called democracy in action. It’s the way this country runs. I assume you have been educated in liberal schools so you have no concept of this country’s history and the many people who have died fighting for your right to protest so venomously. So march, shout, be a vandal if you wish. But this country runs on the “Rule of Law,” and even though some politicians evade that law, it’s what defines what and who we as a country are. Occasionally we are reminded that we have strayed too far afield. That’s when the corrupt and incompetent get tossed out of office by an enraged electorate. That’s what happened.

I expect the president will be the catalyst to untie the Gordian knot of immigration, so fouled up by the previous administrations, that will welcome the tens of millions of new Americans waiting for the change. Are you willing to help? Have a nice life!
