picture of schadenfreude - Fake Dictionary Dictionary definition of the word schadenfreude - JPG

scha·den·freu·de noun: pleasure derived by someone from another person’s misfortune.
I know that it isn’t nice to enjoy another person’s pain or misfortune. So sometimes I just have to admit that I’m not very nice. I can live with that.

I admit that I am enjoying the losses by Democrats in the special elections as much for their pain as for wanting the Republicans, yes even the RINOs, to win.
In the first place I don’t think that all the Republicans called RINOs, are actually Republicans In Name Only – I think many are just average or middle-of-the road people that don’t like the leftists but don’t like the right a whole lot more.
Not all Republicans are Conservatives. And not all Conservatives are Republicans.
But back to schadenfreude.
I think I am getting the most schadenfreude about the Georgia 6th election where Karen Handel defeated Jon Ossoff.
 To me Jon Ossoff is a poster boy for the what Democrat Party has become. Arrogant, disingenuous and a man without any substance. Just what were his issues?
Using millions of dollars of Hollywood money to bash away at Trump wasn’t enough. Why did Ossoff and those Hollywood millionaires think that would ensure a win?
Did they believe that all that money and having all the media on his side was enough? To many/most voters that doesn’t mean a lot since the media is always on the side of the left.
The silly little twit Ossoff didn’t even live in  the district he wanted to represent. To me the surprise isn’t that he lost by 5 points but why in the dickens he didn’t loose by a lot more than that. Come on Georgia voters, don’t you even care if the politician lives in your district? And if not, why don’t you?
The left always pretends to be the “women’s” party, except when they’re running against a Republican woman. Then she’s the devils daughter and the “white” guy running against her is St. Liberal himself. With Hollywood money too.
With the exception of a few silly starstruck nitwits most Americans don’t care what the celebrities think. At least those old enough to vote.
Many voters don’t even believe they are capable of rational thought.That belief is fortified when a fool like Rosie O’Donnell tweets: “Trump is darkness itself.” Except she used all caps. Rosie provided a lesson on how to look crazier than usual.
Voters are able to see the hypocrisy in how these millionaire celebrities live compared to what they say.  Then you get some nitwit like Ashley Judd blabbing on and on about being a nasty woman – evidently because of her menstrual cycle – well hell Ashley, that don’t play well out here in the sticks.
Dems sunk a lot of money into Georgia – and it didn’t buy them a win.
Dems must be very confused by now.  Their go-to solution to everything is to throw money at it. Granted it’s usually taxpayer money but this time it was their own. And it didn’t go well.
In fact it went so bad that there are once again murmurs about getting rid of Pelosi as leader. Her record on winning isn’t very good. But she’s supposedly the best at raising money. Which makes me wonder what good it does to raise a lot of money if you blow it all on losing elections? What am I missing?
Don’t get me wrong, the right doesn’t want Pelosi gone. She’s one of the best fundraising and election winning tools they have.

William A. Jacobson: Overthrowing Pelosi to save Democratic Party is dangerous — to Republican campaign strategy

Pelosi isn’t the only reason Ossoff lost. She may not even be the biggest reason (there was the conservative lean of the district, Ossoff’s residency issues, questions about his message, etc.). But it’s also pretty clear — and has been for some time — that in the types of districts Democrats need to win to retake the majority, she is an effective cudgel. And more than that, she’s about the only good cudgel Republicans have left right now.

And as shorthand for “liberal,” you can’t get much better than the House minority leader from San Francisco.

 

Some of the people have gotten wise to the never ending cry that politicians need more money to defeat that other evil tribe. People on both the left and right. They see people with little integrity and less competence elected with millions of dollars only to see them do nothing/little that benefits the country or its people.

But keep them checks a’coming in folks and we’ll work for you. We’ll work to get you more food stamps and more welfare and extend your unemployment.

Jobs? Oh, those are for the people we want to be allowed freedom to enter our country at any time to do all those jobs Americans won’t do. It’s called building our base.

The saddest part of it all is that with an education system destroyed by the left over generations we will soon have a population that not only won’t do the jobs but won’t be able to do the jobs.

The Democrat education system is not educating. And the GOP seems unable or unwilling to do anything about it. After all, they might get called names in the media or something. That’s why the word “RINO” doesn’t work for me. It’s more like spineless IMO.

So yes, I am enjoying the Democrat losses in the special elections. Will those carry over to the mid terms? I have no idea. I suspect they will not continue to lose if the GOP doesn’t get it’s act together. They need to send some decent, promised legislation to Trump to sign. Promises kept keep the whining left at bay.

 

Promises not kept tend to make people angry. Angry people might vote against the people that lied to them. Not all will vote for the whiny party but many will. It will be a difficult decision – liar or whiner?

Don’t you wish instead of schadenfreude we could feel pride and a little respect for those for whom we vote? Wouldn’t it be nice, keeping in mind that they are politicians, not to think that the only choice is the least worse stinker? An old girl can dream can’t she?

    I apologize for the fact that most of the paragraphs on this post are squeezed together. I know how hard that makes it to read. I have worked on that for over an hour and nothing seems to let me “fix” it.

    It is WordPress having it’s way with me again. Grrr

    I’ll continue to try to fix it but for now – it is what it is. Sorry. 😦

      Readability is just fine – don’t care about formatting, it’s the contents that matters which is another fine piece of writing.

      Typically special elections bring out fewer voters than generals so I wonder how many registered voters there are in this district. Don’t really care since Handel won which if truth be told is a loss for the fourth estate commonly referred to as the media, and moneyed folks who think their wealth can buy elections.

    Man Charged with Threatening Ohio Rep: ‘We’re Coming to Get’ Every Go**amn One of You’

    A voice mail that threatened U.S. Rep. Steve Stivers and his family landed a Westerville [Ohio] man in federal court Wednesday, charged with a crime that carries a 10-year prison term if he is convicted.

    In the voice mail that authorities said was left with the Upper Arlington Republican’s Hilliard district office on Sunday, the caller mentioned the June 14 baseball practice during which House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and four others were wounded or injured in Alexandria, Virginia.

    “I’ve seen the prayer ya’ll were saying at the baseball diamond … I think ya’ll better hit your knees and pray for the people that you’re screwin’ up their lives,” the message stated, according to a criminal complaint filed by Capitol Police in U.S. District Court in Columbus.

    “We’re coming to get every g**amn one of you and your families. Maybe the next one taken down will be your daughter. Huh? Or your wife. Or even you.”

    E. Stanley Hoff, 68, is charged with threatening to “assault, kidnap, or murder a United States official.” He appeared in federal court wearing a Mickey Mouse T-shirt, jeans and sandals in addition to ankle and wrist chains. [Emphasis added]

      Sorry – either the insane have left the home or another person wants to show off their stupidity on Facebook.

      Did you see the messages that Jason Chaffetz had on his voicemail? They were heinous. One man eft two, and the second time around, the authorities did something abt it. But it wasn’t until then. He has been threatened with having his throat slit, being beaten up and hanged from a lamppost, and more.

      He also said that the guy who shot Rep. Scalise had left FOURTEEN (14) messages, all of which had been turned over to Capitol Hill police, and they did nothing abt it. WOW.

      He said the Reps get these kinds of messages all the time, and clearly, they need to be taken seriously.

      Along those lines, I wonder if Johnny Depp is now going to be investigated for essentially calling for Trump’s assassination: https://townhall.com/tipsheet/laurettabrown/2017/06/23/johnny-depp-asks-when-was-the-last-time-an-actor-assassinated-a-president-suggests-maybe-its-time-n2345623

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        They had better start taking these messages seriously. Scalise and the officers and the aid lived – others may not.

        Time to take off the blinders and realize these nutters mean to harm people.

        And for all those in politics and the media that have been egging them on, you should be charged right along with the perpetrators. Words HAVE consequences!

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          Exactly, Marge. As Chaffetz said, these people sign their names to threatening emails, leave their names on threatening voice mails, and there is NO REASON to not go after them in a major fashion. Our Congress people should NOT have to live with death threats under any circumstances. Enough already!

      And here’s another needy person trying to act the big shot

      ‘Speaking on Thursday at the Glastonbury arts festival in southwest England, Mr. Depp asked the audience, “Can you bring Trump here?”

      The remark was met with booing and jeering, and he continued: “You misunderstand completely. When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? I want to clarify: I’m not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it’s been awhile, and maybe it’s time.”

      “By the way, this is going to be in the press and it’ll be horrible,” he said. “It’s just a question; I’m not insinuating anything.”

      • piper Says:

        This is from an actor who is in trouble financially and refuses to fly commercial flights bec. he doesn’t want to be near the hot polloi who have paid for his permissive lifestyle

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          I found it a tad ironic that he suggested Trump needed help since he sounded much more like the drunk pirate he plays in his movies than a sane, rational person.

          And he should be investigated ASAP, along with Madonna and Kathy Griffin. It is against the law to threaten the POTUS. Period.

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        Johnny Depp must think he’s John Wilkes Boothe. Isn’t that special. What a turd.

    This has got to stop. There need to be real, and SERIOUS, consequences for people who leak information. I hope Gowdy finds this person and throws the book at them: http://therightscoop.com/watch-trey-gowdy-livid-over-classified-leak-yesterday-from-coats-meeting/

    WHOA: Bernie Sanders And His Wife Are Under FBI Investigation

    On January 10, 2016, the U.S. attorney for Vermont received a “Request for an Investigation into Apparent Federal Bank Fraud.”

    The four-page letter said that when she was president of Burlington College, Jane Sanders had “orchestrated” the purchase of 33 acres along Lake Champlain in Burlington to expand the school, where her husband had served as mayor.

    The letter alleged that Jane Sanders had lied and inflated nearly $2 million she said donors had pledged to repay in order for her to secure a $10 million loan.

    The letter stated that she “successfully and intentionally engaged in a fraudulent scheme to actively conceal and misrepresent material facts from a federal financial institution,” asking for a federal investigation into potential bank fraud.
