Remorse My Ass

Perhaps the most overused three words in the English language is “I am sorry.” Of course, most people contract the subject and verb to “I’m sorry.” And those lazy folks will just say “Sorry.” I particularly hate just “Sorry” as it sounds so disingenuous.

I’m sure there are a few people who actually mean it when they say they are sorry for some stupid thing they did or if they hurt someone else. They feel remorse, make amends, and don’t do it again.

The problem lies in the fact that the majority of people will say “I’m sorry” and then continue the bad behavior that sparked the original apology. If you say, “I’m sorry” to someone for hurting them and then keep hurting them, every time you say that you’re sorry diminishes the meaning until the word dissolves into a hollow, worthless pile of nothing.

The apologizer oftentimes ends up getting angry at the apologizee for not believing that s/he is, in fact, sorry for what s/he did. I like to believe most people are simply clueless regarding this, but I do believe that there are some truly horrid folks out there who don’t care who they hurt and spout the word “sorry” ad nauseum with zero feeling.

Remember Aesop’s fable “The Boy Who Cried Wolf?” In it, the titular character kept crying “wolf” to combat his boredom, thus causing a stir in the village and angering the villagers each time. Eventually, there was a wolf, but the fact that the boy kept issuing what amounted to a false alarm rendered this cry for help useless as nobody believed him anymore. Aesop closes out the fable with “Nobody believes a liar…even when he is telling the truth!” Ain’t THAT the truth?!

The chronic overuse of the word “sorry” amounts to the same thing. If you say you’re sorry, be sorry and don’t do it again. Show remorse. Make amends. If you say “sorry” just to placate someone who you hurt, you don’t heal the damage, and if you repeatedly say “sorry” and continue the behavior, well, fuck you.

Under the Big Top

Well, I was going to put off sharing my irritation with the political world, but I figured now was the time. I realize I’m going to alienate half-ish of my audience, but we do live in the United States and have freedom of speech thanks to our wonderful Constitution and Bill of Rights. And yes, while freedom of speech is not unlimited as the US Supreme Court issued certain exceptions, my blogging about my views, opinions, and irritations is wholly protected.

If you don’t like what I have to say, then don’t read it.

Moving on, I am a conservative who voted for, and will again vote for, Donald Trump. Unlike the majority of presidents in recent years (decades?), he actually cares for the US and her citizens. He does what he says he’s going to do (wow, what a concept?!). He actually gets results (stock market, Jerusalem, lowest unemployment rates in YEARS, impressive GDP, etc.). He’s getting our wall built to ensure that illegals, criminals, drugs, and human traffickers cannot simply enter our country willy-nilly. Kudos, sir. Keep up the good work.

The fact that he is a businessman and not a career politician who became a millionaire whilst in office (a la Clinton, Obama, Pelosi, Schumer, Kerry, Lynch, Comey, Waters, Brennan, McCain, Feinstein, Schiff, Clapper, Biden, etc. etc. etc. doing what, pray tell?) was and continues to be, perhaps, his biggest selling point and the reason why his support continues to increase. Yes, increase. Don’t believe the liberal propaganda on CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, etc.

That said, the relentless witch hunt by the left has not only wasted and continues to waste considerable time, money, and other resources, but is also wholly unfounded and based upon proven lies. The author of the infamous “pee dossier” admitted under oath in front of Congress that it was based on lies. After THREE-AND-A-HALF YEARS, there is still no evidence of Russian collusion between Trump and Putin.

And now the impeachment sham. Yes, sham. There is zero evidence of any impeachable offenses committed by our current president. Too bad the same can’t be said for the predecessor who, hopefully, will end up in prison along with Clinton and the rest of their treasonous minions. These asinine traitors want to negate the will of the people and overturn a perfectly legitimate election. When the Mueller investigation wasted millions of dollars and did nothing, the impeachment talk began. First, they talked about impeaching Trump for obstruction of justice and collusion. Now it’s, what, obstruction of Congress and bribery? Seriously.

Trump didn’t provide political favors and tons of money to get his unqualified loser son a job with a Ukranian power company. Trump didn’t sell Putin 1/4 of US uranium. Trump didn’t send a palette full of cash to Iran. Trump didn’t say, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” before making health insurance completely unaffordable. Trump didn’t let Americans die in Benghazi. Trump didn’t delete 30,000 emails after being subpoenaed. Trump didn’t have people killed who had evidence against him. I could go on, but I’m just going to irritate myself even more.

And you know what? The American people (those with a brain who can see through the lamestream, er mainstream media’s anti-American spin) are sick of it. Let the democrats continue with their three-ring circus as their snowflake lemmings prepare to be disappointed yet again come November. I am certainly entertained watching them self-destruct. And I’m not the only one.

That reminds me. I need to get more popcorn.
