The latest from one of my Republican friends

I have mentioned on here before that I live in Florida and that I have 2 Republican friends who I am still in touch with. I lost my other Republican friends (not to death but due to friendships lost over politics)

Even though I am still in touch with these 2 Republican friends, we have definitely had our fair share of sparring since Trump came along!

Well one of them texted me about an incident at Disney World today...a fight broke out over the threat of an active shooter. (I haven't checked out the story yet, myself)

Anyway, so I responded to her by texting back saying "Your extreme always wants to fight and/or kill people. My extreme wants everyone to have health insurance!"

It's been a half hour....haven't heard anything back from her yet!! 😂

The least she could have come back with is "How do you know these people in the fight and the possible active shooter are Republicans?" I didn't even get THAT back from her! 😅

Is anyone else scared...

Is anyone else scared of how MAGAts are going to treat our new Afghani refugees who have come to the US?

2 observations I Made Today

Ok...so this afternoon I took a dip in the ocean (some of you may know that I live in a red county in Florida). We got whistled out of the water by the lifeguard due to impending lightning

My 2 thoughts:

1) I was waiting for the freedumb loving Americans to complain that no one gets to tell them when they should get out of the water, even if there's lightning!

2) Then I remembered neither Fox News (or other right wing media) nor the Republicans in Congress ever told these people that they should stay in the water even when there's lightning! Explains why no one complained

#1, I said in jest!

#2, I did not say in jest!

The tiniest of the tiniest glimmer of hope in Florida

The last few times I went to my supermarket, I was literally 1 of 2 or 3 people in there wearing a mask (those wearing a mask, were customers). Today when I went, about half were masked up! Maybe they're finally actually taking the Delta variant seriously now!!

Democratic COVID vax-deniers

Yesterday someone posted on here that they had a die hard liberal friend who won't get the COVID vaccine because they believe in their plants and herbs....and rocks and things (fans of the band America, will know what I did there)!

But I'm just curious....does your friend, at the very least, go everywhere indoors, wearing a mask? Do they wear a mask outdoors or at least socially distance while outdoors? I would hope if they're not going to get the vaccine, they would at least take these basic precautions to help reduce transmission

Anyone else have liberal friends not getting the vaccine? Are they taking the basic precautions to help to try and not increase transmission and to try not to lead to more variants??

Just had a thought about Megan McCain

I just had a thought about Megan McCain...after seeing that she is leaving The View, it made me think of some of the horrid things she has said on the show over the years, one of which was how she would probably rank climate change as #30 of her list of important issues the country needs to address. So the thought that just came to me is...I wonder if now that she has a baby, if climate change has moved up on her list! You know republicans...things are only important to them when it affects them! I really wish someone would ask her where she would rank climate change now! I bet you anything it has moved way up on the list!!

Advice needed on my Did I Cross The Line lunch

The other day I posted on here describing my lunch with my Republican friend and her republican friend. It was titled "Did I Cross The Line?"

I truly wish I could have recorded the discussion I had with these two women and I wish I could then play the recording for you....it is truly unbelievable how these people think!

Ok...the advice I need is how I should have responded when they brought up Hunter Biden. All I said is 1) what does what Hunter does have to do with Joe? And I also asked 2) where was your interest in the last 4 years in the shenanigans and criminality of Don Jr, Ivanka, and Eric?

But I would like advice on how better I could have answered their question, "What about Hunter Biden?"

Did I Cross The Line?

I went to an outdoor lunch today with my Republican friend (let's call her Sue) and her friend (let's call her Mary) who also happens to be a Republican. They're not just republicans but they are Trumplicans. I know...I know...why do I have a Trumplican for a friend?! I live in Florida....what can I say?? Sue is my only Trumplican friend. I dropped my other ones but this one is hard to drop because she truly is a good person

Anyway, politics came up and they went on and on about how they feel and I went on and on about how i feel. You wouldn't even believe how this conversation went!

But anyway, then it went to how they think Biden has dementia. And I said to them "Do you know why you think Biden has dementia? It's because Fox News has you believing that. Just like in 2016, just before the election, you all believed Hillary was dying of pneumonia because Fox News kept telling you she was! Last I saw, Hillary is very much alive!" So Mary asked if I thought Fox News brainwashes them and I said yes. Both Sue and Mary were flabbergasted with me!

I said let me give you one more small example of showing you how I think Fox News reports things (or in this example, doesn't report things). I asked them to imagine if Hillary had become President and she had put Chelsea in her administration, I said that would have been a 24/7 news story on Fox News on how absolutely horrendous it is that Hillary did that! And then both of you would have vilified Hillary for doing that. Yet, Trump puts Ivanka in there, and not a peep from Fox News! So because Fox News doesn't vilify Trump 24/7 for doing that, you both were completely comfortable with Trump putting Ivanka in his administration

I said these are 2 examples of how Fox News and other right wing media brainwashes people

Again, they were flabbergasted that I said they were being brainwashed! They did not like it one bit!

So, did I cross the line and go too far by telling Sue and Mary, to their faces, that I think they are being brainwashed??

A Frustrating Evening

Met with two friends (republicans) for an outdoor dinner. First time seeing them since COVID started

Where do I begin??! Here is the rundown....

1) They think Biden has dementia

2) They think Trump had nothing to do with the Capitol insurrection

3) They think Trump is responsible for the successful vaccine rollout

4) They think Biden will make us Venezuela

5) They don't think anything is wrong with America, and they can't understand why Americans want to change it

6) They think Biden stole the election

I could go on and on. They kept coming up with one republican talking point after another. I know there are plenty of people that still think like them but to hear it face to face was too much for me to take! I was able to refute everything they said but of course they didn't buy what I had to sell. The only thing that I didn't say that I wish I had is, regarding #5, "If there's nothing wrong with America, then how come I never heard you complain about Trump's slogan...Make America Great Again??!! MAGA means you want to make changes to America. So if America's so great, why didn't you complain about Trump wanting to make changes??" I didn't think of saying that back to them until we got away from politics and then I didn't want to go back to that subject again with them!

Just came home and I feel like I need a shower to wash that Republican crap off of me!!
