Lying through his teeth to the bitter end. Not the slightest care about damage to the morale of this country. Doing his best to deliberately set one citizen against another. I'd really like to know just what we did to deserve this miserable SOB.
MFO is the only public internet forum I read or post on. I appreciate that most of what transpires on this forum is reality based “nuts and bolts” communication rather than unfounded rumors, conspiracy theories, brickbats and propaganda designed to obscure rather than enlighten.
I appreciate that these thoughts are worthy of no better than a C grade. But it’s the best I can offer at this unimagined time in history.
I'm uncertain as to whether your above comments are a mild chastisement of my post, but I'm inclined to be a bit more forthright here now that no one need be exposed to the OT section unless they intentionally do so. I need to share my feelings about this horrendous situation with someone other than my wife.
No. I hadn’t considered it a chastisement of you or other board members in any manner, shape or form.
What I intended:
I fear, loath and detest that some in high places would seek to redress grievances pertaining to our democratic governance and institutions of a most urgent and serious nature not through our normal institutional and judicial processes, but rather by propagandizing in various public media and forums with the clear intent of sewing distrust in our democratic institutions (including the courts), arousing animosity towards one another and with the poorly disguised end goal of instigating civil violence and acts of intimidation towards public officials, hoping thereby to accomplish through might what they believe to be impossible to achieve through our long established democratic norms and processes.
Having slept on it, I had another go this morning, part of the goal being to construct a grammatically correct 100-word sentence, knowing how much you “dig” both grammar and long-winded expository expression. It says all that I wanted to say but suffers badly from less than stellar word choices along with inferior consonance and assonance.
Thank you for reading and reacting to it.
