Trump Hatches the Egg

aimeantwhatisaid.jpg

Last week (thanks to an unexpected generosity) I flew to Seattle, to celebrate the birthday of one of my best friends. This man and his wife had been on the Trump Train from the start and actively worked (phone banks, door belling, organizing) to ensure his election. They were indefatigable. With them and with other friends in that over-tattooed and pierced moonbat metropolis we drank champagne, ate good food, scarfed down some fine birthday cake, and watched the events of the Inaugural Day -- and the days after -- and proclaimed it all, "BEST WEEKEND EVER!" Back home I tell my friends ( and my Facebook faux friends,) "I am enjoying this far too much, but I feel your pain." I also find I have developed an addiction to the evening shows on Fox News.

This morning I note the various policy announcements regarding Mexico and the shrinking of the federal government and the other items streaming live from the Oval Office. I note the Enemy Media (for so they have positioned themselves) and various other enemies of America being flabbergasted that Trump is actually DOING what he said he WOULD DO. The Enemy Media loses yet again. They have bet against Trump at every turn and yet here they are. They have lost consistently in these bets and they are losing again.

What we have here is not "a failure to communicate" but a "a failure to believe what was clearly communicated again and again."

Perhaps these dense members of the Enemy Media need things explained in a simpler, more memorable fashion. You know, something a child could memorize. Something along the lines of the ever-popular Seussian Horton Hatches the Egg. Recall that...

The book centers on Horton, a genial elephant, who is convinced by Mayzie, a lazy, irresponsible bird, to sit on her egg while she takes a short "break", which turns into her permanent relocation to Palm Beach.

Naturally, the absurd sight of an elephant sitting atop a tree makes quite a scene - Horton is exposed to the elements, laughed at by his jungle friends, captured by hunters, forced to endure a terrible sea voyage, and finally placed in a traveling circus. However, despite his hardships and Mayzie's clear intent not to return, Horton refuses to leave the nest because he insists on keeping his word, often repeating, "I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. An elephant's faithful, one hundred per cent!"

The traveling circus ends up visiting near Mayzie's new Palm Beach residence. She visits the circus just as the egg is due to hatch (after 51 weeks in Palm Beach) and demands that Horton should return it, without offering him a reward. However, when the egg hatches, the creature that emerges is an "elephant-bird", a cross between Horton and Mayzie, and Horton and the baby are returned happily to the jungle, rewarding Horton for his persistence, while Mayzie is punished for her laziness by ending up with nothing.

"Ending up with nothing" pretty much describes the hole that the Democrats and their Moonbat members have dug for themselves. Now that they're down in it it only remains for us to bring out the backhoes and fill it in.

Trump is the daddy the grown up children never had when they were growing up. Their bio-daddy was either non-present or addicted to watching sports or any number of things and failed to raise them as they should have been. More than likely his temporary life-mate clued him in early on who was who and what was what so he decided to treat the kids as friends rather than pissing *her* off by using discipline with the charges. When parents raise friends rather than children they never learn about barriers and believe the world and it's contents are theirs to use anyway they feel.

Then Trump comes along and lays down the law and the wayward children get mad and petty and start recoiling in abject horror, that the world does indeed have a few rules that must be adhered to.

Nobody dislikes rules like crybabies and they always react the same way. It's all about them at the expense to everyone else and if you don't like it then don't frequent the websites that spotlight them. Give em exactly what they don't want - attention. Place them in a strong box and close the lid, and LIVE dammit, LIVE! :-)

They're lame,
They're sore,
They comically complain,
They've all become a bore.

Let them bitch,
Let them moan,
Let them grumble,
Let them groan.

Their self-made world
Is a dementing cage,
So let them revel,
Let them rage.

As time goes by
They'll see some light,
They'll suck up their shame
And cure their blight.

It won't be pretty
It will be shitty.
Progress, if too itty-bitty,
Will extend the pain and the pity.

What happened to Fox the day after the inauguration? Over a million people marching, and I might add, peacefully, and I turn on Fox and zero, zip, nada. Not even the banner headlines that scroll at the bottom mentioned the marches. WTF? Bad call by whoever at Fox made it. They only missed one of the biggest news stories of the decade. Unbelievable, and I lost a lot of respect for them.

Everybody has a different spin on what "alt-right" stands for.

To me it stands for just that - talking in plain language and then DOING what you promised.

No more Orrin Hatches, Paul Ryans, etc... who give small government lip service during campaign service - then govern and legislate as moderate Democrats.
