Conservative blindness…

Workout notes: weights only. rotator cuff, lots of goblet squats (30’s and 40’s), leg press: 10 x 210
pull ups: (5-5-5), (5-5-5), 10, 10 (5-5-5) do 5, switch grip, do 5, switch grip, do 5 with no rest
bench press: 10 x 135, 4 x 185 (good), 10 x 170 (very good for me)
incline press: 10 x 135
military presses: 3 sets of 10 x 45 dumbbell standing
rows: machine: 3 sets of 10 x 110
head stand, 2 sets each of 12 twist crunch, 10 yoga leg lifts, 10 moving half bridges.

Post I still have a few conservative friends on FB and I sometimes read what they have to say. Here is what one of them posted (and this guy is a smart, successful businessman)

Very odd wrinkle, this election. “Mud Slinging” has existed forever. But I can’t recall any election where voters become the target, not the candidates. With the “deplorables” statement/ follow ups, and social media posts where highly partisan potential voters post very negative characterizations of other voters, routinely, it’s hard to think this is good for any of us.

Hmmm, what about Romney’s 47 percent remark?

What about Sarah Palin’s “real America” remark?

Ok, ok, then there were similar remarks directed at Obama voters from…yes, the Clinton campaign …

So…attacking voters is nothing new. People like me have been attacked from the podium since, well, as long as I remember. I am used to it; evidently my sensitive conservative friends are not. 🙂

And then there is a different kind of conservative. Oh yes, they HATE Colin Kaepernick not standing for the national anthem…the type of conservative that…flies the Flag of Treason:


Please spare me this “Southern Heritage” crap. For one, this flag was flown by the Confederate Navy and by some individual armies. But it never flew over a confederate capital city. In fact, this flag came back into “style” when the southern states were pushing back against enforced integration.

Seriously people: if you approve of this flag, YOU are the one who is acting in an unpatriotic manner.
