What Alternate Universe Did I Get Zapped Into?

The British withdrew from the EU......

The Cubs won the World Series......

And Donald J. Trump is now President-Elect......

It's amazing the amount of downright hostility that's being expressed by the Lamestream Media, losers on FarceBook, and others.

My wife is the office manager (#2 to the principal, which means she really runs the place...) at a very prominent magnet high-school that specializes on teaching the STEM type of program.

She said quite a large number of students (mostly girls, but some boys, too) were in tears today over Trump's victory.

And further, they were wondering when (not if...) the grief counselors would be on campus to help them in their time of need.

I was stunned when she told me that, as all of these students that I've met do NOT seem to the special little snowflake type.

Oh, well....a goodly number of supposed "adults" were crying, too......


  1. They will all live to bitch on other days.

  2. If that's all they have to complain about - they need to count themselves as fortunate.

    1. Just a bunch of spoiled, coddled children....

  3. I'm hearing stories around hear of the teachers breaking down and crying. In the classroom.

    Can you imagine this society having to deal with any form of SHTF/scenario?

    1. My wife tells me most of the teachers were of the opinion to tell the kids to suck it up, and learn to be an adult.

      The principal issued a statement that it was "not appropriate" to call in grief counselors for an event like this.

      At least the adults have some sanity where she works....

  4. Have you ever noticed when conservatives lose at something--anything (a game, a promotion, whatever)--all we ever do is clench our jaw, promise ourselves to do better next time...and then start preparing ourselves for that "next time"?

  5. So it's clear that these fragile snowflakes will be in the first wave of die-offs when the SHTF, etc. That just means more supplies for the rest of us.

    1. Yep. They wouldn't last a week without BIGGOV to take care of them....

      My wife's friend, the minister who married us that I've told you about, and her husband are literally physically ILL over Shrillary's loss.

    1. Yep, don't let the door hit you on your way OUT of here....

  7. I saw posts on fb earlier that many colleges canceled classes and postponed tests because of Trump being elected.
    I can't imagine *anything* like that happening when I was growing up.
    Well, they did cancel classes the rest of the day when President Kennedy was assassinated.

    Be safe and God bless us all!

    1. I was in grade school, and we knew something was going on when the custodian called Sister somethingorother out to the hall, and she came back in white as a sheet.

      A little while later he came back, and we heard him tell her that President Kennedy was dead.

      Shortly after that we all went to the church/school basement where the meeting hall was and the Principal told us what had happened.

      I don't recall iuf they let us go home early, but it was the first time in my life that I'd seen all the adults in that state of shock that happens when a momentous event like that happens.


Keep it civil, please....
