Arguing With Brick Walls

I’m seeing that our President is slowly coming around to this conclusion. Chuck Schumer is a die hard bipartisan guy, bless his heart. He wants everybody to go away happy. Nancy Pelosi on the other hand came to this conclusion sometime in the Trump administration. Talking to brick walls is a waste of time.

There’s an old joke, “Don’t confuse me with the facts, my mind is made up.” That’s these folks. They don’t want to hear any facts that don’t agree with what they have already decided is the truth. When somebody is like that, just go back in the barn and crank up the front end loader. You’re going to need it to get through the pile of utter BS they will throw at you.

Or, in my case, I go get in the 4×4 and switch over to 4 wheel drive. They are not going to stop me. Slow me down maybe. Stop me-no.

Don’t get me wrong, I like brick in small doses. We have a brick fireplace in the house that has two fireplaces (upstairs/downstairs), the chimney for the wood burning furnace, and the back side is the wall of our kitchen. I love it. But metaphorically speaking, pounding my head against a brick wall just because I can seems like a waste of time and all I’m going to get is angry. So why do it to start with? Ah, there’s the question.

Some people are just born to placate. They want everybody to be happy. I have news for them. The only way some people are going to be happy is when they see you beating yourself up because you can’t get them to change. I refuse to make those folks happy.

My view? Somebody is not going to be happy no matter what you do. If they can’t (for whatever reason they choose to come up with) or just plain WON’T meet you in the middle, go ahead without them. It’s what Schumer and Pelosi did with the Infrastructure Bill and we finally have things happening. The Republicans are trying to claim credit, but we know better. THEY ALL VOTED AGAINST IT.

Now we can tell people it was all ours and they’re claiming false glory. Isn’t that just the craziest thing?

Come on over to the side that wants you to have a good life-one where you can get the things you need when and where you need them in a timely fashion. Vote BLUE IN 2022.

Live in west central GA with 5 horses, 2 dachshunds, 3 cats. Life is complicated. Especially when you are an older female living in rural Georgia and the system is definitely rigged against you. God, I've learned to appreciate at least something of what minorities go through. White men are such boar hogs.
