Tucker Carlson coined — or at least popularized — the phrase Fetterman Nation. As a writer, I will take anything to get my point across. I swiped Trumpenfreude from Paul Krugman to describe that feeling you get when a Trump opponent has had his comeuppance.
Today's Don Surber column is a detailed list of spiritual, moral, ethical and pathological insanity. Without God, a living soul is grist for the satanic mills. This column details the living proof of that fact.
Back in 1980 (or whenever it was) when the Supreme Court said no prayer and no Ten Commandments in U.S. schoolhouses, a huge spiritual vacuum was created. What this writing of Mr. Surber's details now are results from the elements of evil that have flown in to fill that vacuum.
IMO, this statement from the column gives legs to the insanity:
"A goon in a hoodie and basketball shorts with no discernable skills or accomplishments defeated a well-groomed, respected cardiologist, television personality and businessman for the Senate."
The goon did not "defeat" anyone or anything. The goon is incapable of rational thought. The goon is a crippled man who had a bad stroke. The real goons of Communist Democrat Leadership propped up the crippled invalid and pushed him across the finish line with boxes crooked stolen ballots and crooked Dominion Voting Machines. Fetterman and Biden got to where they are through vote-fraud and vote-theft. Saying the goon "defeated" anybody makes it sound like a legal, fair election.
“The Statuary Rape of American history is a good example.”
Yes Nikki Haley removed the Confederate flag when what she should have done is put Robert Smalls in Statuary Hall
The Decline of Empire began with the slogan of "Free Trade" so that Crony, American-in-name only, Corporations could get rid of their pesky American employees, yet keep 100% of the American Market. As industries were stripped and shipped to Mexico and China, jobs, families and entire communities were destroyed. The despair of drugs were the alternative for cheated American workers.
And the worst fact of all ? The U.S. dollar could be printed, via debt, now via inflation, to provide the appearance of an actual U.S. economy, when the facts were, the physical assets of the nation, her good faith and credit, were being abused without consequence for the Decision Makers. The cover for asset-stripping was/is there for all, who are not blind, to see.
An industrial giant, birthed and spoiled by American Capital and unearned favors, China, now is fully risen, laughing behind closed doors. And Fetterman Nation can't even teach racist math.
Don, you've captured in print what so many of us see, know and feel. I think the education system helped get us here. What I feel every time I see the Fetterman-ization of the world I live in, is the desire for vengeance. I know it's wrong. Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Lord. It's not my place to dole it out. I know that. But the feeling for these people to get theirs, to get their comeuppance, to see some sort of justice done to get things right is so strong for me, I want that every time. Sinner I am. I keep thinking that things will revert to the mean. We will go back to the centre. But now I don't think the centre will hold, not with what I see. I shake my head and I do hope and pray for better. What happens next is up to the man upstairs and maybe through his use of ordinary people things will change. We are lost collectively and have lost our way. We need to get back to "home."
"It is like making Gary Coleman your first pick in basketball."
Truth. It is for gems like this I am so glad I subscribe.
I used to volunteer a lot with the homeless in Jackson, MS. The churches did much to help those that wanted help. Those that didn’t, we provided someone they could talk to and trust. When gubment agencies tried to stick their noses in and get involved, it was a disaster. All they wanted was to check off some boxes. The homeless knew that and hated those “helpers”.
On almost every level, the gubment is causing similar disasters. It was dysfunctional before Uncle Fester was elected via cheating. Now, he is the poster child.
Planned? It is so screwed up, it can only be on purpose.
Life these last 2 1/2 years has been like living in a unending torrential downpour of incomprehensible Leftist Extremist Insanity; it would be almost impossible to list the number of egregious outrages that have and continue to occur day in and day out.
I believe most Americans, those who still have a grain of common sense left, are feeling utterly overwhelmed by the constant onslaught. It is almost paralyzing.
We look for breaks in the dark clouds that surround us, but they are few and far between. I fight the temptation to become hopeless, but find it increasingly difficult to see light at the end of all this totally self-inflicted insanity that is laying waste to this once great country.
I think it’s time for all good men, women and children to fall to their knees and pray for mercy from God above and for His help to show us the way out from this valley of death and destruction.
Nikki Haley and Chris Sununu would make for a dream ticket for the Republicans. Sorry, I thought it was April Fools Day.
I am sure we have had other politician like Fetterman and Biden that were- Brain dead Depends wearing Zombies needing massive doses of amphetamine to utter words. Yet, the world was different then and the people pulling the puppet strings probably didn’t hate all of America.
Every morning I read Don first (except Sunday of course) and then Jonathan Turley. His post today is somewhat related: https://jonathanturley.org/2023/02/16/government-funded-index-of-worst-disinformation-sites-is-entirely-composed-of-conservative-and-libertarian-news-outlets/#comments
Someone tweeted that how we talk about Fetterman checking himself into a hospital for depression is a mark of our humanity. The insinuation was that it's terrible to do anything other than sympathize with Fetterman. But he's a senator, not a private citizen. He's to blame if he ran for an office he knew he wasn't prepared for.
We should “renormalize” our Declaration of Independence, our Constitution, the rule of law, our Christian roots, prayer in public schools, marriage between a man and a woman. I am sure fellow commenters can add more. We need to also “renormalize” calling all sexual deviance mental illnesses, all anti Americanism and our founding principles treason.
We're in a 1984 Bizarro World.
Hey, any gummint expenditure means a bureaucrat get richer; "We need more money for homeless!" means the money that gets allotted for 'homeless' going into the pockets of state employees.
"Hey Ukraine, we will give you $100B in aid and the first 10% goes back to us. Now, let's talk about Russia." It is the name of the game as former state department bureaucrat whistleblowers have stated.

The grift is a staple in American life. The problem is I am too dumb to participate.
Article is filled with gems but I liked this the best, it applies to schools too:
"The number of social workers, advocates and programs rise but the problem grows."
Special Education question: Do we get any points at all for hiring the Handicapped in the White House, the Senate, or Hose of Representatives? Every little bit helps. Helping who is not known at this time.
