Anger Makes Total Sense
by

Actually, now that I think a bit more about it, I do see some reasonable grounds for anger by voters.

They can be angry that they have to press a button to speak in English, the official language of the United States. They can be angry that they go into a store and not one person behind the counter speaks English.

They can be angry if, like me, they live in certain neighborhoods in Los Angeles where swaggering middle easterners in Rolls Royces blow them off the road.

They can be angry if criminals riot and throw bricks and bottles at the police officers who are trying to protect their neighborhoods and then the politicians, including the Head Politician, says it’s the police who have to be watched.

They can be angry if the street punks/pukes beat an elderly veteran to death in a convenience store and the elite media rushes to understand how the killers were mistreated by racist Amerika instead of pitying the veteran and his family.

Anger is a perfectly valid response to seeing a President endlessly scold about gun violence and never, not once as far as I can tell, mention the words “Crips” or “Bloods” or use the power of his mighty office to speak to the gang bangers and tell them it’s not the police who are to blame: it’s the gang bangers. They can be furious that the President never mentions the entities mainly responsible for gun deaths other than suicide despite his uniquely valuable moment to do so.

They can be angry that he preaches for understanding of the Muslims — most of whom are indeed fine people — but calls the leader of Israel, our by far best friend in the world, obscenities and dares to accuse Benjamin Netanyahu — unquestionably the bravest head of government in the world, a man who has more raw courage in his toes than Obama has ever seen, “a chickens–t coward.”

They can be angry that he has refused to call Russia on its war in Ukraine or killing 283 civilians in a Malaysian airliner.

They can be angry that we have a party in the White House that goes hat in hand to Wall Street for money and then unleashes the most vile rhetoric against the key machinery of the free enterprise system.

We have a President absent without leave in the fight for the future of law and freedom, a big government golfing, goofing playboy instead of a real leader of the free and the brave. we can be angry about that. 

Or, if we are recent college graduates, we can be angry that the law actually requires us to pay back our loans.
