A large crowd of people followed Jesus, including many women who mourned and lamented him. Jesus turned to them and said:
“Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep instead for yourselves and for your children, for indeed, the days are coming when people will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed.’At that time people will say to the mountains, ‘Fall upon us!’ and to the hills, ‘Cover us!’ for if these things are done when the wood is green what will happen when it is dry?”
“He was free, then. It had all be brought out into the open, and he had gotten by with it. This seems to have had a liberating effect on Chase’s activities”
Bill James on Hal Chase
There have been more than a few people who I’ve talked to how have teased me a bit at the outcome of the election. That’s fine. It turned out I was as wrong as I could be and misjudged the American People or at least how they were spread out since the popular vote in this election was razor-thin. so if folks want to hit me on it that’s fine, the consequence of that wrong prediction will be some embarrassment, I can handle that.
Unfortunately for the American people, while I made a mistake in terms of predictions and in reading the poll results they made a mistake in terms of decisions.
They lived through the last for years of the Obama administration and still re-elected him.
They lived though the jobless recovery under the Obama administration and still elected him
They saw a successful attack on Benghazi on 9/11 no less with him as commander-in-chief and still elected him.
They’ve seen business’ close, and choose not to hire, and the whole ten years and STILL re-elected him.
Granted the GOP decided to nominate the weakest candidate in the field, a candidate unwilling to defend conservatism ideas boldly nor willing to attack. But even the people knew what they had, knew it wasn’t working and stuck with it.
The Democrats ran a campaign based on ladyparts and the American People decided to buy it, particularly American women, and like many women who choose to stay in a relationship that they KNOW is harmful the result is going to be just as catastrophic.
Apparently it’s going to have to get a lost worse before it gets better, and the people decided on the candidate who will certainly make it worse.
We conservatives will have to double our efforts to teach but the results of the next four years under Barack Obama will do that more effectively than anything else.
Experience keeps a dear school, yet Fools will learn in no other. Get ready America you are about to have a four-year course on the joys of socialism with a president who no longer has an incentive to pretend he is anything but the radical he has always been.
May you be Happy in the choice you have made because you’re not going to get another one for four years.
