Stolen election & living with right-winged Americans finally brought him to his early demise
theanchoressonline.com ^ | 6/21/05 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 10/06/2008 9:18:59 AM PDT by prolifefirst

Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other guy to die.

The obit says he died because of the strain "of living in this unjust country“.

An avid atheist, he studied the bible and religion with more fervor than most Christians. He had strong political opinions and followed Amy Goodman’s radio broadcast “Democracy Now.” Alas the stolen election of 2000 and living with right-winged Americans finally brought him to his early demise. Stress from living in this unjust country brought about several heart attacks rendering him disabled.

But I expect it’s more what Will Smith said to his son in “Just the Two of Us,” “…hate in your heart will consume you, too.”

I relate to this guy. I am full of resentment toward liberals, especially in my family.

I think if Obama won it might cause me to not communicate with those people.

Not to worry. A McCain Presidency won't be much better than an Obama Presidency, with the possible exception of SCOTUS appointments, and even those would have to get through a Democratic Senate.

With an Obamination Presidency, we would have a chance to repeat 1994 in 2010.

This all depends on Republicans "finding religion" and returning to their fiscal conservative roots, led by another Gingrich (but NOT GINGRICH.)

“Anybody have advice on not letting political/cultural resentment eat away at you.”

You have to unplug. For many of us, this is an interest, a hobby, a pastime and critical life information all at once. My brother is a liberal who cannot unplug. He seems to be an unhappy man, and everyone who knows him knows he can’t give it a rest.
I’d say focus on your business, your job, your family. Turn on some music, forget the news for awhile.

Go vote, do your part, and deal with what comes our way.

We were told by the (Republican)Mayor of Santa Maria California (the "All American City") to take our McCain signs in at night to keep them from being stolen.

He has also admitted to 15,000 illegal aliens in our city of 80,000 regular folks.

"not communicate with those people"

Your instincts are leading you right. Imagine if patriots in this country withheld social and familial support from our nation's citizen enemies. The left is insecure and weak, they'd wither like a worm on the sidewalk.

Do it.

Sounds like he worried himself to death. I’d like to hear what, exactly, he considered to be “unjust”. I think it’s unjust for people to be given employment because they belong to a particular group.

I'm taking money out of savings and stocking up on Pepto Bismal..... if not I'm going to be ill, all day, every day.

Perhaps I will start my own black market distribution of tums, pepto, etc..... I won't be able to pay the taxes on a legit business, so I'll take my chances going black market.

Oh wait, will we have to change it to White market so we aren't hounded by the Obama Hitler youth?

I hope you are correct about your own situation.

My experience with liberals is that if you don't express total
giddy endorsement of their positions, start agitating for their
causes and basically behave as a fervent convert to their
secular/atheistic religion...
you will always be "suspect".

Yeah and Obama is going to make a great CIC and his foreign policy will be masterful

And him having control of the IRS will make Clinton's auditing of conservative organizations look like child's play

And nothing like having the power of the Patriot act at your command

Bozo election would spell the end of free elections in this country. We would never see any elections that we would win. Obama is a dictator waiting to happen and if he gets his communist senate and house also America is headed for a totalitarian state. Don’t think so? Look at the “youth” programs he has already started building. Look at the blatant way he tries to suppress criticism of anything he does, sending out LEOs and the AG in one state to act as a truth squad. If you can look at that sh** and still think there is no difference between McCain and Bozo then you have a serious mental problem, and I am not kidding. Go get help, fast!

I feel your pain. My wife and her Filipino family are all libs for the sole reason that they think the Dems care more about minorities. They are good, sweet, well educated, hard working people, but they've fallen into the trap, and no amount of debating, or enlightening seems to break them free from that perception. They're all excited about the Obamination :(

“... living with right-winged Americans finally brought him to his early demise”

But if he had only hung in there, Obama will “unite” America and make it possible to live with right-winged Americans (or maybe he’ll just arrest all of us).

I'd blame this on Pacifica Radio and Amy Bin Goodman in particular for her Democracy?!! Now(?!!!) program.

The hateful bilge of left wing hate radio drove this man to an early grave. He couldn't take it anymore.

24-7 agitprop does not make for a healthy diet.

Brownsfan nailed it. You have to unplug. It's a genuine problem, especially if you happen to be addicted to FR (I can quit anytime I want!) - and especially at this point in a Presidential campaign. We have four weeks left so taking a couple off may not be in the cards but taking a day or two off is necessary for your health if you're starting to feel symptoms of anxiety - sleeplessness, temper, chronic anger, depression. Just let it go. Prayer helps. I'm assuming from the link that you do; if not, meditation is useful as well.

This stuff can absolutely eat you up, which is why I'm not mocking the devout athiest mentioned in the article. His problem is that he blamed other people for it. Us eeeeeevil conservatives didn't kill him; he did.

Sometimes you just have to stay away from politics. My brother is a major lib, so we talk more about family concerns and I visit his studio to see what art he is creating. Family is about more than politics. When the going gets tough, my brother is an honorable man and I’d trust him hands down.

Have a large whiskey. If you don’t feel better, have another. Have some corn chips and habanero salsa, too. I’ll send you my recipe if you think it would help.

This item is from 2005, by the way. Isn’t it time to move on?

The most under-reported reason for the stability of our constitutional republic may be fore-knowledge of a Date Certain when the next election will take place. This is an important safety valve for the "revolutionary impulse." No matter how an election turns out, you can know that everything is up for grabs four years later, in presidential contests, anyway.

That's the theory, anyway. If I felt certain that we could count on another election, I wouldn't be as concerned. A generation ago, the notion that artificial emergencies could delay or hamper that "Date Certain" were beyond Tin Foil. I'm not so sure, any longer.

More is at stake here than familial relations. We are headed toward a true Civil War, and wouldn't that just play right into Obama's hands. We're reaping a harvest of the triumph of Progressive Education and Hegalian Synthesis, and we've listened to the liberals bitch about "stolen elections" for eight years.

I don't know about you, but if I thought for a minute that an election had been truly stolen, I wouldn't spend the next four to eight years bitching about it, and I wouldn't be worried about whether that position was ahead in the polls or if I were totally alone in that position. Neither would I advertise my intent.

Let's just say al Qaida is the least that the practical Democrats who would take over the federal government would have to worry about.

Luckily they, being very cool people, don't assault me with any nonsense. When we do get on the subject, they don't really have any points to make, they just follow their feelings and preconceived notions. I try to return the favor by not belaboring political arguments, but I do try to lay it out in a thoughtful way, relying on reason to hopefully sway them eventually.

I just feel sad to see the Dems deceptive race pandering work on smart people that I care about. It's depressing.

The link works for me, however the posting of old news doesn't, but to each his own.

Check Michelle Malkin’s archives from June of 2005. The story revolves around a guy supposedly committing suicide because of the Evil Bush Regime. I'm moving on from BDS. We now have to deal with PDS. :)

A B.H.O. presidency would mean I'm (and everyone except the dead beats) reminded every April 15th that this country voted for the wrong guy.

If the middle class wants change, well they'll too get stuck with higher tax bills to pay for things they really don't want to be paying for... folks that are too lazy to seize a piece of the American dream, making something of themselves.

Socialism/Marxisim is NOT cool.
