Death Knell?

I was once a Democrat. In those days, I thought I was on the team of truth, justice, and the American way. It was fun to be a Democrat then. But… Bye, bye Miss American Pie. Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry. I woke up.

I’m no longer a Democrat (it’s been many years now), and though on the rarest of occasions I worried I’d made a mistake, Tuesday night watching the shell-shocked faces of the Democrats on the floor of Congress while Donald Trump delivered his magnificent speech, I knew I had made no error. I even wondered what was going on in my head in those isolated moments I doubted myself.

The Democratic Party members watching that speech looked like a party of the living dead. They didn’t know how to react. They didn’t know if they were Americans. They didn’t know who they were.

Every time Trump called for bipartisanship for the good of our country, they winced. They couldn’t stand it and didn’t know how to react because they are the least bipartisan people in the world and they scarcely know what cooperating is. Working together is not in their natures. Yes, they talk about it endlessly but they never do it. (See: the history of the Soviet Union) Maybe it’s not in their DNA. (I should check mine.)

When the speech was over — after there was no longer a dry eye in the house from the introduction of the widow of the Navy SEAL — they left the room faster than fans of the losing team after the Super Bowl, only in this case they left so stunned you had to wonder if they would ever win the game again or even compete.

A quick thought on the “ladies in white” at Trump’s speech. They were obviously aware that white in many cultures signifies purity and chastity. What they were clearly not aware of is that white is also the color of death to many folks around the world. The following video which I found many years ago and will now replay is the short story of a Chinese princess meeting and marrying her new husband. In it he gives her a gift wherein she can see what is happening to him. Because he was a warlord he was required to defend his… Read more »
