I had hoped to leave my child a better world than I lived in, but my hopes have changed. I just hope I live long enough, now, to see these morons crushed under the weight of their own evil creation.

In Port Ludlow, Washington, in a community comprised of 66% liberals, progressives, democrats.
There are some very distraught people who were hoping thewould not go down the path now chosen. The dispondency has resulted in a spreading show of mourning for the Nation. Many have resorted to wearing all black, some are wearing a flag, the small fabric kind, upside down or with a black ribbon diagnolly across the flag, or are wearing a flag pin upside down. More than one has said that they are mourning the death of our democracy, capitalism, and our Nation as they grew up knowing it. The mood is palpable and the liberals have become snide, sarcastic, rude, even "in their face" with chuckles and comments that are designed to wilt and shatter those who did not support Obama.
Port Ludlow is a small community of about 3,000 mostly retired people with an average age of about 70. Meanwhile, many of it's citizens who have retired on their bond (fixed) interest income have seen their incomes cut in half, homes forclosed upon, and their financial reserves evaporate. The impact has been on both liberals and conservatives, yet the liberals celebrate the policies that are destroying the community. Truely this community, of mostly middle income people, is slipping backwards. Homes can't be sold, the few businesses are all suffering, and some have abandoned their lovely homes to relocate elsewhere. The golf course in the village has closed 9 of their holes, 2 of 5 restaurants have closed, a small health clinic closed, among other economic deterioration.
Think about it. Many senior citizens now feel all is lost, at least in what remains of their life times.
Once was a time when folks would remark about a human shark like personality as one who would "eat their young." Now the liberals are being seen as people who steal from and would "eat the old."
