I’m a white man. A well-educated professional. I am wealthy and have a modicum of power. I’m not a racist. I believe in the ideals of conservatism, but not with the radical form of it currently in Washington. However, I was raised to oppose democrats and am too proud to align with them. 

No, I don’t like a lot of what’s happening in Washington. I’m not a racist. I don’t hate women. I don’t hate immigrants. Hell, I need those guys to mow my lawn (paying the white crew is too expensive—I know the value of money.) But here’s the deal—what’s my incentive for rocking the boat? I kinda have it made right now. 

Sure, sometimes, when I stop and think about it, I feel for people of color, young people (who have it way harder to make it in America than when I was their age), the old and unhealthy, and others. It’s a shame. Really. 

But for right now I’m going to keep filling my vault. And when this crappy world becomes too much to think about, I’ll charter a fishing boat in the Caribbean for a long weekend. I’m lucky. I get it. And I hope, no I’m sure that things will become more equitable and compassionate. Eventually.

But for now I need to book that charter. Have a great weekend. Good luck. 


I’m a white man. Educated enough. I make a fine living with my hands. And I think what’s happening in Washington is great. Our leaders are stepping up for US. Since Obama we’ve watched are jobs and bank accounts shrink as the blacks and Spanish got a free ride. Well folks, America voted and now that shit is done. 

And the liberals are whining about it. Of course they are. 

Well enjoy what’s happening libtards because this is how we like it and if you don’t you can take your ass to Canada or Germany or wherever they want you. You don’t get to spend my hard-earned taxes and future fortune on a welfare state and fake science anymore. Your through you hear me? THROUGHT! Why don’t you just go off in cave somewhere and die.
