"Many senior citizens now feel all is lost."

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.

An email to Remus from a long time reader and friend of Woodpile Report. 

In Port Ludlow, Washington, in a community comprised of 66% liberals, progressives, democrats.
There are some very distraught people who were hoping the US would 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 US flag, the small fabric kind, upside down or with a black ribbon diagnolly across the flag, or are wearing a US 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."

  1. Sadly, it's true. My grandson will never know the pride and joy of being an American. He never studied the stories of our Founding Fathers - they just learned their names; not what they sacrificed. They do not teach American history any more - it's world history now. When my generation is gone, there will be no one left to remember what we once were. It breaks my heart and there is nothing I can do about it.

    1. If he is willing, you could certainly read with him. There are some good, true history books.

  2. I just returned from a 2 week visit to my son, daughter-in-law, and two grandkids in Wenatchee, WA. Washington is a strange state. It is bi-polar. Thirteen years of visiting Wenatchee has proven that the Eastern half of the state is as conservative as any. Then you have the Western half which is as liberal as any. I shun Seattle and Olympia and go north towards Canada for diversion. The Conconully Outhouse Races are coming up in January and the great Omak Stampede will be in August. My advice to Port Ludlow old-timers is "Go East, young man and get away from constant rain and the Blue half of the state."

    Sounds like my speed.:)
