🌋 What’s The Fuss 🌋 Open Thread



Before the election those on the right predicted the world would end if Hillary was elected. Whew, we sure bit the bullet there didn’t we?

Predictably those on the left insisted that the world ending event would be the election of Donald Trump.

Although I personally couldn’t see a good result if either was elected I also didn’t believe that either of the old farts had the power to end the world. After all it’s been around a very long time. It only seems like Trump and Hillary have been around as long.

Now Pelosi and Reid? That’s a different story.

Now the left is in full crazy mode. Students in kindergarten, er college demand safe places with Play-doh and coloring books because Trump has been elected and is doing terrible things. Except he’s just the president-elect, Obama is still in the White House and terrible things will have to wait until after January 20, 2017.

I heard that someone drove by a college today and yelled Boo! 15 people went to the hospital, 734 need counseling and classes are cancelled for a week. Progressive education at it’s best.

I heard Ben Shapiro who was on Reliable Sources this past Sunday say that if the mediaOutrage-O-Meter kept the Trump outrage meter turned up to 11 it would be a long four years. This latest version of Reliable Sources is about as “relieable” as a two dollar watch. It’s hosted by a nitwit named Brian Stelter whose Trump fauxrage is pathetic. He’s smug and arrogant without any reason to be smug or arrogant. He’s a little worm.

I wasn’t a big fan of Howard Kurtz when he was the host but at least he was better than Stelter. Which isn’t saying much. Needless to say that Stelter crossing swords with Ben Shapiro is like a tricycle tangling with a bulldozer when it comes to brain power.

The thing is, Shapiro is right. With all the outrage, with the protests, with the riots, with the lies, distortions and just plain b.s., where does the left go from here?


They’re already at an 11 on the zero to ten outrage meter so where do they go when Trump does something truly outrageous – as I have no doubt he will. He doesn’t have too much time to do anything too horrible right now since he’s in a twitter war against the cast of Hamilton. Pathetic.


That is the next POTUS. Doesn’t it make you proud?

One of the few public figures who is crazier than Trump, that would be Howard Dean, says that Trump will put a Nazi in the White House. Crazy Howard is referring to Trump’s buddy Steve Bannon who is by all accounts a thoroughly nasty man. But not a Nazi. This hyperbolic language is typical of Dean. He’s also a thoroughly nasty man.

Media and Dean both ignores the mutter from the right about Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s Svengali who is also a thoroughly nasty person and supposedly a Muslim mole. Crazy doesn’t just infest one party.

There has been a slightly more than usual number of celebrities threatening to move to Canada if the election doesn’t go the way they want it to go. You can almost understand how people that play pretend for a living think that if they pretend their leaving would matter it might.

Sadly there is no sign that they really are leaving. That’s too bad because the whole I.Q. of the country would rise if Whoopi, Lena Dunham and Cher would just leave like they promised they would. Or just shut up but that’s not likely.


So the fuss continues. People protesting the hate from Trump –  riot in the streets, stop traffic and beat up people that dared vote for Trump. Can’t you just feel the love?

“Love trumping hate involves a lot more assault and arson than I had anticipated ” ~ Jason Price

Late night comedians are, no surprise here, liberals and are mostly acting stupid. Their bias is never in doubt. For many the question is about their lack of talent, their inability to be funny when their agenda is more important than their comedy. We also wonder why they don’t know how little most of us care about what they think. Late night comedy was once king. I think they abdicated their comedy to their bias a long time ago.


A few people with brains, the minority as usual, are trying to get the rest of the lunatics to understand that their two week long temper tantrum is only exasperating the problem they have with voters in the first place. You can only call ordinary people names for so long before they tune you out or vote you out.

The lefties in their idiocy created an atmosphere that allowed a game show host to become the President of the United States. And they refuse to see it. So they go berserk to prove to those voters that they were right to reject the left and their raddled old candidate to vote in their own raddled old candidate.

So what’s the fuss? Were we under some impression that our government, our media and voters that are stupid enough to fall in love with some politician would act like reasonable adults? I’m not surprised. Appalled. Embarrassed. Disgusted. Yes all those. But surprised? How can you be surprised at anything in a country that has college students in search of Play-doh and coloring books?

Finally I can never forgive the left for putting me in a position where I must, if I am to retain any integrity, defend Trump from their hyperbolic, insane, rhetoric and obsession with Trump minutia.

    Thomas Sowell: Backward-Looking ‘Progressives’

    One of the maddening aspects of the thinking, or non-thinking, on the political left is their failure to understand that there is nothing they can do about the past. Whether people on the left are talking about college admissions or criminal justice, or many other decisions, they go on and on about how some people were born with lesser chances in life than other people.

    Excellent post, Marge. And you aren’t only kidding abt having to defend Trump. Ain’t THAT a kick in the head?

    Check out this idocy at Hampshire College – they REMOVED THE AMERICAN FLAG because Trump won: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/nov/21/hampshire-college-removes-american-flag-after-dona/

    What a bunch of immature, emotionally stunted people we have in this country now. WOW.

      Your last sentence said it all perfectly Amy, “What a bunch of immature, emotionally stunted people we have in this country now.”

    The Hamilton Thing: It Really Is Very Simple

    Essentially, the production added to its own script a little codicil, an explanatory cudgel they condescendingly presumed Pence needed to hear, because he just watched an entire performance and he obviously didn’t get the gist of it. So he needed some help, because he’s a stupid Indiana hick who believes in Jesus Christ.

    They lectured him for their own benefit, and for the rest of the country who identify with New York billionaires and Indiana hicks, that we don’t get their existential angst.

    Nobody likes to be gratuitously lectured. Every time the left does this, they’re just committing cultural Hara-kiri. But instead of apologizing for such boorishness and condescension, they ominously say stupid things like “Trump has opened Pandora’s box, and we’re looking for hope at the bottom.”

    It really is very simple. But they don’t get it.

    There have been many good articles about why we need the electoral college. There are so many people that don’t understand how it works or even why we need it.

    But once again my cartoonist heroes have come to the rescue. Nothing I’ve seen explains this better than the Michael Ramirez cartoon below:
