The Trauma From Obama

As the media is all about analyzing Trump’s first hundred days with an accusatory eye, I thought it was time to take the temperature of the country. That’s putting it mildly.

I like the medical analogy with America as the patient. So we elected Obama, whether you want to look at that like contracting a chronic illness or severe injury is beside the point.

It’s more like we suffered some ailment that grew progressively worse over the 8 years Obama was in office. Not enough care or attention was given it; in fact it got none. Then, since the election, and more recently, we were treated to a parade of opposition.

I finally diagnosed into his second term that it seemed America was in Trauma — becoming a slave to its condition. You knew it wasn’t getting any better and watched it get worse. After the shock wore off there was still a lot of trauma. So “no drama Obama” caused a whole lot of trauma.

Right into Trump’s inauguration that Obama trauma continued. One thing I’ve learned from people who studied the subject is the body does not heal itself fully while it is in trauma. And if you know anything about x-rays, they cannot get real clear pictures of something with so much trauma around it.

So we had to shake off that trauma from Obama. Not easy. He had infected every part of the nation, from one end to the other, and divided the country by every measure possible. He also politicized about every part of government. No wonder we were in that state.

Even when Trump came into office, it was immediately obvious there were Obama loyalists, hangers on, and Deep State opposition almost everywhere. Leftists began a stampede of protests. Democrats promised to oppose anything and everything.

Yet here we were still a traumatized nation. reluctant to provide us any relief. Obama’s loyalists came out kicking the injury, reviving the pain at every opportunity. It’s hard for one to deny the state we were in under Obama. The first step would be to rid ourselves of the trauma to let healing begin.

However, can you really ever heal from something as traumatic as Obama’s legacy? I guess you would also have to talk to abuse victims to examine that part. And yes, it is possible to be in trauma while also being abused.

Obama’s preface, in the unspoken

While Obama is still drafting his book, I’ll practice my satire in writing what should be his preface, if only someone slipped him a dose of truth serum. One thing you can count on is that his finished excuse-a-log won’t look like this. (unless you read between lines)

To the reader

After wearing the nom de plume of President of the United States for eight years like no one else ever– because I’ve always been sort of confused about my real name anyway — I feel I owe it to the people, who had the pleasure of putting me in that office, to tell them how right they were to bestow their blind allegiance in me.

They, and you the reader, will be eternally the better for it. Always keep believing.

No longer being able to use that particular POTUS title will not stop me from showing the same arrogance and narcissism that I always… well, that got me this far.

To prove how correct I am, my first big speaking engagement is set at 400 thousand, and the price will only go up from there. My book deal commanded an historic 60 million for my and Michele’s books. And what a bargain they got. I feel obligated to tell you in case you were surprised at the size of the number. I’m projected to be on course to being worth about 250 million in 15 years — by conservative estimates.

It was always my opinion that I should tell you what I think you need to know. And being that I have been entrusted with the sole liberty to write the history of this country, everything else should be ignored. You also should really appreciate the modest price of this book because only I know how much I spent creating it.

Enjoy.

Now that I think of it, his version of murdering the truth will probably be far worse. But his sycophants will lap it up because to admit his allergy to the truth, at this point, destroys the gigantic myth of his entire legacy.

Kim Jong Un has issues with aggressive “words”

Allow me to paraphrase Kim in proper English vernacular

Those “aggressive words” are causing the trouble. Those voices and words in my ears infuriate me and cause me to kill my own people, build nuclear weapons, send missiles at neighbors for any occasion, threaten the entire region, then test my weapons.

Hell, I even offed my own uncle, and had my stepbrother murdered in a foreign country. I must do these things because of the vicious voices.

Those words and voices are causing me to do all sorts of things like threaten preemptive strikes, invade neighbors, and threaten to use nuclear weapons against the US. Those voices are causing trouble. And the president of the US should stop his aggressive tweets – causing all this trouble.

I, however, am over here peacefully minding my own business building my nuclear bombs and arsenal, testing them; and along come these vicious voices annoying and distracting my legitimate, peaceful operation here.

I’m ready to preemptively bomb those distractors of my agenda.

Well that is a liberal paraphrase of Kim Jong Last-Un’s words. So I slightly embellished on his threats…which is really hard to do.

But then in Kim Jong the last’s view, he is bloody well right.

1)Rip selected passenger “volunteer” out of seat

2)Call it a re-accommodation

3)Blame victim for being uncooperative (as chosen victim)

4)Issue asinine statement from CEO to stand behind employees.
be sure to blame victim again in follow up statements.

Location for Obama’s Library

I’ve been hard at work trying to help Obama out with locating the right area for his museum-library. Someone had to. Location is everything.

After searching Chicago suburbs on Google for hours, I found a good spot for Obama to build his LieBarry. Right on the corner of Resistance Road and Poverty Place.

Taxes are cheap there, not that he’ll be paying any. And the neighborhood is just perfect for riots with lots of abandoned open space for all those demon-strations they’ll have.

I would suggest minimizing the window area. Micky D’s will want the adjacent corner. That should help the economy and offset the tax loss. Of course they’ll be no need for parking because what idiot would be stupid enough to bring a car there?

Just perfect.

Protest Academy

It is about time the left creates a charter school devoted to liberalism. So they can start kids when they are young, you know, while mommy and daddy are hard at work trying to pay for their schooling. (Sounds just like higher education now)

That in mind, they can drop all the academic curriculum for a more “traditional” liberal one to teach the kids life lessons with courses like:

How to win friends while influencing protests

How to drop the F-bomb like the big leftists.

Life is one giant protest

Protesting for Profit

Don’t like it? Protest it

Fun with rocks and bottles

Writing your own protest lyrics

How to make a protest sign from a pizza box and broom handle.

How to get arrested protesting without knowing what you are protesting.

Creative fundraising techniques for any liberal cause

Justice bad — social justice good

Mocking opponents and defending the indefensible

Chant creators are always looking for talent

Big bucks in bigotry — Part 2: identity politics rules

Navigating hate speech: deflect and destroy

How to play the race card — always in style

A primer on anarchy

Then again, am I giving them ideas… or are they already teaching it in Public schools?

Groundhog Day: state of climate

In this current climate, my friend says it is time to protest Groundhog Day. Okay:

I’ve been to Punxsutawney and YOU, sir, are no Punxsutawney Phil.

No offense to other ground hogs out there. Stop ‘normalizing’ Phil.

Word is Phil is rightfully concerned. He saw what they are doing to “Fili” the Filibuster using the nuclear option. What could they do to him? His climate prediction is: six more weeks of ‘dangerous’. That’s par for the course in this scorched-earth political climate.

Hey hey, ho ho…. it’s off to protest we go!

Lost vaginas or misappropriating thereof

Sorry for the subject matter, though it is important.

Stealing is a problem these days and I know there are epidemics going on, but now I hear people are trying to steal vaginas. And if someone were stealing them, where are they all going, and where would they keep this vagina stockpile? (inquiring minds)

I’m still researching but last I assessed the matter, I could find no woman who was deprived the use of her vagina and did not see where anyone lost her vagina due to government coercion or force. So I’m still looking for where women — I believe only women have vaginas — were losing their rights to the free use of their vaginas.

What they seem to want is another right that government has to “fix” the misuse of their vagina or “reproductive rights.” Now I don’t know of where the government guarantees a fix to the misuse of free speech, or guarantees the outcome of the exercise of free speech. So now vagina-phobia has reached an epidemic. Thousands turn out protesting.

Fear of this theft, however, has caused people to do a lot of strange things. For instance, even dress themselves as a full-sized vagina and parade down the street in protest.

So if all this is the case, I think we should also put out a reward for anyone stealing vaginas and the return of them. There should not be this much misappropriation, or stealing, of vaginas. Anyone giving aid or comfort to these thieves must be held accountable, too.

Note: It is my understanding that these vaginas voted last year en masse. But they lost the election and now all this rampant stealing is underway, creating massive fear.

The Politicization of Government

Hello, class, today our 8th-grade social studies continues our series on ‘the politicization of our government.’ For review: we already discussed particular areas in past lessons from EPA to the Justice Department, to the border control, to the IRS, to enforcing the laws just to name a few topics. You can review your notes on them.

Today we will look at just how politicized this all has become. So there was a letter by 50 former Republican officials that worked in various places in administrations. They all agreed to sign this public letter condemning the Republican nominee in this election, as unsuited for the office of President. They say they will not vote for Trump. Many were from national security or homeland security. Experts in their own minds all. They have decades of combined government or bureaucracy experience applying those government credentials to their political opinions.

Before this, a few other individuals also spoke out to condemn this nominee. We can add a former CIA director, Mike Morell, taking a political stand in support of Hillary to the list. It seems fashionable at first. But when you look closer there is something more going on.

They criticized Donald Trump for not having the proper temperament. But it should be noted they have not joined forces in their criticism before with the last Presidents or nominees. So this seems to be a another step in this politicization process. You can all read their letter for homework but I’m talking about the general emphasis. They are mostly criticizing Trump’s character. So that is standard fare now, but it is on the level today we haven’t seen before.

I suppose an extra thing to note is they are very proud of it. This is personal criticism or attacks on character and psychoanalysis. It looks like a cover for various political dissent. So you could see it as partisan political difference but again, it’s more.

We’ve seen that Obama politicized almost every area of government. These national security officials have anted up and then raised him by 50 votes. So it is not just one side of the political isle. The common denominator seems to be their time and experience in government coupled with an unanchored ability to delve into politics, using their experience and recognition, to take a public political position. Finally, to lampoon a nominee as unqualified and unfit for the office. Scale it up to organized groups in opposition.

The other thing worth noting, even though they all have political disagreements with him, is Trump does not appear to be an ideologue driven by partisan politics. In fact, what seems to irritate his opposition is he has been vocal in criticizing both Republicans and Democrats — though establishment in both. What we seem to have is an insurgent candidate who represents a threat to both sides of the establishment coin. Both sides are bent out of shape. This election is flushing out establishment from the others.

And that establishment class in Washington is not happy about these winds of change. It represents a threat, in some cases, to everything they have built their career around. Now we are seeing what they do, lash out at it. In this unfolding process, I think we’ve now seen just how political these people can be. This only dovetails with regular institutional politicization of Obama down through virtually all parts of the administration to his political, ideological agenda. They are proud of it.

Class dismissed. Next time, what happens if they lose?

Stop the Tragedy: Rein in Disaster… before It’s too late

See something say something. Be vigilant, don’t let our guard down.

Words, just words? ..(satire…)

I decided to take a stand. Something has to be done. We have a serious problem in this country and it is only getting worse. If I’m accused of politicizing tragedy, I don’t care. Too soon? Too bad! It is urgent. We can’t wait. This isn’t about gun control, it’s about survival.

Can we now see that when anti-American, racist hacks become armed with unilateral executive power and a pen that really bad things can and DO happen? It’s almost a given and we see ugly results of it unfold time and again. It is a recipe for disaster.

I’m tired of going from one horrific, tragic abuse of power to the next and people asking “couldn’t anything be done to stop it? Shouldn’t we have seen it coming?” Something needs to be done to stop this cycle of abuse. We need to do much more to prevent this from happening over and over. We can do better.

This notion I hear all the time that somehow allowing more of these irresponsible, reckless race pimps, ideologues and hacks more access to that weaponry of power, instead of less, is dumb. It is a phony talking point… and it’s dangerous. We all should agree on that!

I have to admit I, too, once turned a blind eye to this risk. I rationalized that these things probably wouldn’t happen and they would not effect me or my community. Well, those hopes have been shattered along with the hopes of so many others. We believed we were safe. But we bought into the lies.

We have to decide, at some point, if this is the kind of country we want to live in. The background checks have not worked nor been able to prevent this access to the weaponry of power, tragically. It’s time we ask if this dangerous executive power should be accessible? Who needs that kind of power anyway?

It might be time to finally consider removing that powerful weaponry from the hands of those not suited to have it in the first place. And maybe it is time to confiscate this dangerous weaponry before it is further abused or falls into the wrong hands. Some things are far too dangerous for anyone to own or have at their fingertips. We just cannot afford to take that chance anymore. We’ve seen the damage this weaponry of power can do.

That’s right, I’m not afraid to use the “C” word, it’s time for confiscation. We’ve tried everything else and it hasn’t worked. We cannot trust anyone with the means to wreak so much damage on so many people, especially race hacks with sinister intentions. We must remove that weaponry from those who would do us harm.

These legislative loopholes have allowed this abuse to continue and less regulation is not the answer either. These policies are setting us back decades. In fact, we used to have tighter restraints on this weaponry of power, but we have these big organizations out there with lots of money, pushing their own agenda to Congress. Make no mistake, they are powerful and their agenda is dangerous to every man, woman and child in this country.

We must decide if this is the kind of country we want to live in, where these acts — or the threat of them — are “daily fare”? I do not want my family or grandchildren to live in that kind of country, under that threat. They don’t deserve that, nor do we.

We must be stronger than these threats and interests.I don’t want to examine another case in the rear view mirror and say “could have, would have.”

Rare natural phenomena and the Clintons

A strange phenomena occurred on Monday at a Phoenix airport. All the natural and political forces were aligned in such a rare way that a 1-in-millions chance that two planes on the tarmac were magnetically attracted to one another and that the occupants of each were then driven on an unavoidable collision course. They both survived impact.

As I said as rare a chance as that ‘is’. It needs to be appreciated in that light that it may never happen again — rarer than a solar eclipse and less predictable.

So it really doesn’t matter that it was former impeached President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Pay no mind to who they are, this could have happened to anyone. Pay no attention to their unique relationship being both involved in opposite sides of the investigation or pending case against the spouse of Bill Clinton. That also makes this such a rare event. That should raise the odds to like 20 Trillion to 1.

Since words really cannot explain this adequately — and it did leave many speechless — about all one can say is if not for a chance tipoff from a reporter, we wouldn’t even know it occurred. An event like this does not even leave chem trails. The brief, rare encounter lasted about 30 minutes, until they could pull their magnetic forces from each other to go their separate ways. We’re so privileged to know it happened. How lucky we are it was documented — and no emails, servers, or subpoenas were necessary to validate it.

But the AG didn’t try to deny it, only that no pending investigations or details were discussed. Well, I guess the chance that none of those things even came up makes this chance encounter all the more rare. How could all those natural forces involved avoid the subject? Close encounters of the rarest kind.

Apologetic for the close encounter, Lynch now says she regrets that it cast a “shadow” over the pending investigation and process. Those phenomena can do that. Sounds like another perception problem on our part.

Friends that they are, I mean this kind of thing happens — a social meeting. She was in the moment did not view it the same way onlookers may have viewed it. That’s right, folks, this meteor would leave no marks or traces at all. That is why it is so important that it was caught and documented that it did happen. Lucky we are, experiencing history like that.

I know, maybe this was part of what Hillary said was a “security review”?

War on Bill of Rights

The liberal, progressive, Marxist, Socialist, radical Left is now at war with the Bill of Rights. That’s the Constitution for the unaware.

They are at war with any amendment they don’t particularly like or see a political reason for, since ideology trumps everything. The process goes something like this:

So “make no law” means make a law, in fact, make lots of them. It means freedom for the preferred or right type of assembly, in the proper zone. It means Freedom for the correct type of press, sans James Rosen types.

It means that militia is no longer needed or necessary, and neither are guns. The “shall not be infringed” means please infringe it into nothingness.

“Due process” means whatever they decide or interpret due process is at any given time, subject to change or revisions. For example, having a Democrat in the White House could be considered due process.

It means being secure in your property and possessions against search and seizure are relative terms for the all-powerful state to decide, and is provided or bestowed on one how government chooses, subject to revocation.

Right to be “confronted by witnesses” at trial means not necessarily and, again, up to upper management. A “compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor” is not obligatory. Protection against “excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted” is so yesterday. I mean times change and so do conditions.

We the big-government reserve the authority to “deny or disparage others retained by the people” whenever we declare it. Let’s just call it a Bill of Tolerances. Move along.

Feel the Bern… oh the pain

Hillary Clinton has officially hijacked Bernie’s movement.
And she did it wearing a 12,000 dollar Armani jacket.

Hillary announced that she set yet another historic precedent moment.
So I’d like to continue the history-making trend by indicting her.

Cost of announcing this historic moment — 12,000 dollar Armani jacket.
Cost of making history by indicting Hillary Clinton? — Priceless.

Hillary for Prison

Scratch the Armani

Hillary declared she is now the presumptive nominee.
Someone should have told Bernie that Hillary was the “presumptive nominee” the day she entered the race. So when was Hillary Clinton not the presumptive candidate?

Hillary added she will be taking a few days off to “absorb all the history we made here.
Well, I’ve already absorbed all the history we made here — as challenging as that was.

Benghazi, lies, servergate, speechgate, Clinton Fundation — investigations go on.
We should shatter another glass ceiling and indict the heiress of treason.

Losing in 08, she said that glass ceiling now “has about 18 million cracks in it.”
That happens to be less than the 20 million Hillary made on speeches in 2 years.

Hillary liar

Hillary fired

Hillary should also be the presumptive nominee of the Leavenworth primary.

Scratch and sniff all the scandals…. Wake up and smell the history.

Bathroom policy and cultural identity

As part of the “radical” bathroom policies Obama is forcing down America’s throat, I think it could be time for a new disclaimer.

See, bathrooms may be available to a person depending on who they currently are identifying as. But there is a fly in the ointment.(Okay, it’s loaded but bare with me)

I think we now need to have a disclaimer on each bathroom.

 

Updated bathroom policy

The person — if that is not in question — who uses this bathroom is acting according to his/her/its own preference at the time of usage. However, this bathroom, and the people who supply it, do not assume any responsibility for the sex or gender claim of the user upon leaving the bathroom. If they leave the bathroom and change their mind on their current gender identification status, then this establishment and bathroom is in no way responsible for that decision.

And therefore, we cannot be held liable for the patrons decision to affirm or deny their gender status at the time of usage or after using this facility. Please be advised accordingly.

For other patrons: you use this facility at your own risk and at the discretion, personal risk or offense of other patrons — be they currently identifying with your gender or someone else’s. We are not liable. And should they make a mistake by misidentifying with their ‘appropriate’ gender for any reason, we are not liable for their mistake, failure, or misidentity mishap. And neither are they.

Thank you for your inconvenience during the identity crisis of people throughout the country.

Your cooperation is appreciated,

Gender Identity Crisis Reaction and Intervention Management Team

Please also be advised that gender policy must not be confused with “appropriation of culture,” which is a major societal problem. The conduct of “appropriating” another culture for any reason is still highly offensive and rightfully condemned.

One’s cultural identity is not chosen by an individual regardless of the reasons to do so. Any questions, see the Cultural Identity Awareness Team.

Allow me to introduce myself

Hi, my name is Iggy Bliss, and I’ve been asked by the blog owner to do a few posts. At least until he tells me to STFU. You’ll hear from me occasionally.

That’s Iggy to most of you, which stands for ignorant – proudly. I’ve been called blissfully ignorant and that is a good moniker. So here I am, Captain Iggy Bliss, at your service.

By that description, I am just happily ignorant. And I plan on sharing some of that wisdom with people here. If you are a Trump supporter, you may have been called ignorant at some point. If not, you will.

Now you might but I don’t consider it satire, since I don’t really know what that is. I plan to cover a limited and selective amount of subjects here because, after all, I’m blissfully ignorant. That won’t stop me from applying my talent wherever I can.

I’m also driven by animal spirits because the same source has called me an animal and a miscreant. So you never know what I might say or do traced to that animal nature.

Just as a primer, I came across this:

Excuse me, but doesn’t Ted Cruz want an open convention? Isn’t he basing his hopes on that — a ballot after the first ballot? I guess that is what makes me ignorant.

Tale from the dark backside

Here is a story of a fictional account of a candidate running for president.

Media and all their activist, political gurus decide the frontrunner candidate has an unflattering mole on his backside in the shape of Mussolini. So they broadcast all their suspicions, adding various attributes about this suspected mole.

They demand that he allow them to see so they can decide for themselves what it looks like and what it means.

The candidate, at first blush, refuses to comply. Now they up the ante. Why that surely means he does, in fact, have a big ugly mole on his left cheek. And it must really be ugly. and he must be really self-conscious(read guilty) about it if he will not reveal it.

Okay, now there a plenty of reasons for them to demand to see this mole, or prove that he has none. What is he hiding? They are to the point that even if there is no mole, it all depends what people will see when they look at it anyway. Besides, that would not matter. The “story” was that he has this mole and the proof there is not one wouldn’t be important, because that is a non-story.

If a mole does exist, no matter size or shape, it will be seen as validation of everything they said. Any mole can be turned into a huge, ugly mole with enough magnification. “And we will find one,” if we have to invent one. “Now you might as well let us have a look see because we’ve determined you have one there.”

This scenario might be applied to most any candidate. Well, except if it were someone named Barack Hussein Obama.In that case: one would not be allowed to suggest a mole, nor could anyone demand to see it. But there would not be any said mole in the first place, so there would be nothing to talk about. Case closed, “there is no mole… move along.”

A Hard Self-Therapy in a Word

This is a difficult yet therapeutic post to write that has been a long time coming. I’ll start with a simple word that frames up my sentiments at the moment, goodbye.

I’ve felt and lived through the difficulties of saying goodbye at the bedside of dying friends and loved ones. It’s one of the hardest things to face. But this is not that kind of goodbye. There is another type that has a brighter hope and opportunity attached promising new adventures ahead. It’s more that type I’m referring to.

It’s been a strange few years with many disappointments, pains, and the agony of defeat. Sure, there were a few short-lived successes here and there. Just enough to create temporary optimism about what lays ahead.

Okay, before misleading any readers to what this is about, what I am talking about is the country’s current situation — through my eyes at least — in the 2016 election. We have had a few good times in recent years but they soon turned back to a dark cloud.

What on earth am I rambling about? Well, I’ll tell you. It’s just possible that there are some things we might finally bid farewell to. (at the time of this writing anyway) They are things that have been with us for a while, etched into our minds and factored into any serious political discussion.

Picture an episode of Twilight Zone where Rod Sterling says,
“Imagine, if you will, a country without these…..”

Politics as usual: It’s probably the biggest one. Politics as usual may finally be changing. Too early to say if it will stick or not. But it feels pretty good in the short term that politics as usual could be grinding to an end. It outlived its utility and is now called into question. Could there really be something else? There may, in fact, be some life outside it after all.

Race hustling: This one may still be in effect but it seems to be losing traction fast. It might have worn out its welcome. Since things like traffic and road closures, detours, and mall demonstrations inconveniencing millions of Americans, this one may be in search of a new cause which was inevitable. Likely a migration into other areas like plain political activism.

The Democrat plantation: May be heading off into the wild blue yonder. It seems the old blue identity plantation may have outlived its fertilizer supply. This one goes with politics as usual. The primaries are revealing some serious fractures in the same old, such as taking voter groups for granted.

The establishment: Well, this one is not so much what it is but the incessant influence it has. Now its influence could be challenged. It remains one of the biggest factors in our politics today and may lose its control on our system. This one will not go quietly.

Race card: Just as race hustling is called into question, the time has come when the narrative finally got so old and predictable, and less believable than ever. It suffered from overuse and abuse. Imagine a place where it is frowned on to play the race card at every opportunity?

Woman card: This one was a little surprise, but again it suffers from overuse and abuse, especially where abortion is concerned.If the objective was fairness, we may have come full circle with the latest idea to mandate that women also register for the draft.

Interesting, too, in the first Iowa caucus that women went for Sanders. In New Hampshire the 18 to 34 yr old women overwhelmingly went for Sanders over Clinton. 87% for Sanders and 9% for Clinton… says something about choice.

Political correctness: This one is still hanging on by the skin of its teeth but has suffered some serious blows in this election cycle. We’ll have to see if it goes on life support but it is in intensive care. Some wonder now if it is really worth saving.

“It’s my turn now” — This old standard may finally be going the way of the Edsel. It never was very flattering anyway. It looks like it has been challenged from every side and found wanting. How the “rightful” heirs will feel about its absence has yet to be determined. Will they cry and demand it? Will even they be too ashamed to pursue it all the way? Time will tell. But patriarchal families are considering the dire consequences. It could be a bit too much for them to accept all at once.

Note: this claim may seem a little premature. However, chances are good for some of them, better every day in this political climate. It would require vigilance to enforce their absence. Well, that is what this formality is all about — with optimistic hope — bidding them farewell and goodbye. Can’t say I’ll miss them, dibs on the epitaphs though.

NEWS IN BRIEF — The Onion
January 11, 2016

SAN DIEGO—Explaining that she had needed a few months to herself to “get back to the right emotional place,” local woman Laura Berman told reporters Monday she finally felt ready to start receiving completely unsolicited and extremely vulgar messages again. “It was really important to have some time to regroup, but now I think I’m ready to put myself out there again,” said Berman, who stated that, after careful consideration, she has decided to open herself back up to a relentless barrage of sexually explicit and unwelcome emails and texts from strangers. “Call me old-fashioned, but I’m glad I waited until I was mentally prepared to start [opening crude and offensive messages from men who I’ve only spoken to briefly, if at all, that make me feel incredibly uncomfortable, and then after I’ve politely asked them to stop, being bombarded with obscene insults and sometimes violent threats that make me terrified to even look at my phone]. I think it’s time.” At press time, Berman reportedly expressed surprise at how easy it was to get back in the swing of things after opening three consecutive messages containing photos of various unknown men’s genitals.

Fine satire. No comment from Hillary’s server on the matter. Somewhere in there is a lesson to women and voters who support Hillary.
