Just when i thought my MAGAT neighbors were irredeemable assholes [View all]

A nice young lady and her infant daughter moved in down the street, she is in the midst of a divorce and from her body language I think she was the victim of abuse in her marriage. She and I are the only ones around not flying Trump banners, she is called the young woke lib, I'm sure you can guess who the old woke lib is.

I looked out the window and saw a group headed for her house so I headed out also. It turns out her ex father in law was trying to take the baby from from her. She had called a neighbor lady who had been keeping an eye on them and that is where the mob came from.

As we came around the corner the ex father in law says "just give me the baby, you know I can take her but I dont want to hurt her or you". Next thing I know one of the guys is in his face and said if he ever heard him threaten this young lady or her baby again he would "slap the stupid" off him.

Another guy asked her if the ex father in law had her permission to be there and she said she had been trying to get him to leave. This guy tells the ex father in law he should leave because he is creating confusion which could lead to accidents and all kinds of nasty accidents happen way out here in the desert that the authorities never even hear about

I have heard these same folk saying horrible, hurtful and hateful things but when this lady needed help then we're there. I will never understand people, that is why I am considering becoming a hermit when I retire.
