Thoughts On A Sunday

Welcome to the Post-Election Hangover Edition of Thoughts On A Sunday.


One sign that the political silly season has finally ended: most of the campaign signs have disappeared from the lawns and roadsides. They should all be gone by Wednesday, or at least that's what state law says. However I have no doubt more than a few from losing candidates will remain for some time, probably to be picked up by town or state road crews.

Now the only things we have to concern ourselves about over the next few months is Thanksgiving, Christmas, and town meeting.


Speaking of silly, it appears that many of those protesting against Trump came from Rent-a-Mob.

I have to wonder how many of those non-paid protesters against Trump actually bothered to vote last Tuesday? From one obscure report I viewed (lost the darned link), it appears quite a few of those not liking the outcome and blasting social media with the #NotMyPresdient hash-tag didn't even bother to vote. Maybe they figured it was in the bag for Hillary, so they didn't need to actually vote. If that is indeed the case, then they're protesting under false colors. If they want to be ethical about the whole thing, they shouldn't be protesting at all. They gave up that right when they decided not to exercise their constitutional franchise.

As I have told a number of my fellow townsfolk when they complain about one thing or another that was voted in or out at town meeting, if they didn't vote they have no right to protest the outcome.

This is a great rant from a British Progressive, explaining why Hillary lost, placing the blame where it squarely rests – The Left.

Be warned – he uses some rather impolite language.

I'd say he nailed it.

And here's a take on the tweets by idiots reaction to Trump's election.

As in the previous video, there is some harsh language uttered.


I fully agree with the sentiment on this video, and agree with the fellow who tweeted it that this video should go viral.


This is something I have noticed over the past 10 years or so, so that others have seen the same thing might mean what we've see is true. What is it?

Liberalism has decayed to the point where rote dogma rules and questioning it means you are one of those who must be silenced.

Too many of my progressive friends seem to have forgotten how to make actual arguments, and have become expert instead at condemnation, derision and mockery. On issue after issue, they’re very good at explaining why no one could oppose their policy positions except for the basest of motives. As to those positions themselves, they are too often announced with a zealous solemnity suggesting that their views are Holy Writ — and those who disagree are cast into the outer political darkness. In short, the left has lately been dripping with hubris, which in classic literature always portends a fall.



One thing the results of this election have shed light on is the awful parenting skills of the Left. All one has to do is read these tweets.

I feel sorry for these kids because they likely to be unable to survive in the real world because they've been infected with their parents' neuroses.


Glenn Reynolds offers a retrospective of what he wrote after the 2008 election. It is quite a contrast from what we've been seeing from supporters of Hillary.


And that's the news from Lake Winnipesaukee, where we're happy the political silly season is over for now, not worry about being deluged by political ads, and where we can actually look forward to Monday.
