With all the protests and chaos and stampeding in the media , with all the support for criminals and terrorists – I got hit. And nothing changes an unbiased opinion as quickly as being the victim of a violent or heinous crime. In my case, it was my home, my house, I was defiled by burglars. Not only did they take items that were in my family for hundreds of years, they left a calling card – they peed on my carpet. A nice brazen, large, spreading stain.
Maybe they laughed and thought it was a nice calling card, a send off, a &^k you because I had more and they wanted – what I had. They were entitled to what I had. The new Socialist way of thinking … If you don’t have it, just steal it!
Little can express my feelings except that I find myself more angry than sad, more outraged than weepy, although the weeps do take hold. I’ve been robbed before, but then it was a stupid idiot robbing another poor person, and I just felt – what an idiot. This time, I had something to lose, and they emptied it all.
Unfortunately, it’s not like television or novels where the police and sheriff are all over the case and spend wakeful hours upon hours researching who could be the culprit, the MO, the footprints, the case! In reality, they spend diligent hours taking notes and yet in their heart they know it’s gone – it’s all gone. And there is no way it will ever be recovered. In reality, you lose and life moves on for everyone else – including the burglars. Because the police have literally thousands upon thousands of cases to cover. And you are just a pin-prick in the miles of paperwork.
In my case, what they left is almost as interesting as what they took, not that I protest what they left behind! But the entire agenda converted a few around me, they suddenly took it all personally and they switched – on a dime – and saw that anger is the impetuous that is driving the bandwagon around Trump. But this time – this time – it isn’t black anger or illegal immigrant anger, or Islam anger, or poor me anger – it is I AM DONE anger. As in, enough. As in we have been the scapegoat punching bag for everything for way too long and I am done. Anger.
As in – I didn’t do anything wrong and am paying for some bizarre prejudicial anger that has nothing to do with my everyday life. As in the hypocrisy is just over the top ridiculous, anger, and I’m not your punching bag! Anger.
The crime statistics are REAL anger. Terrorism is real. Hate and pain are real! And it wasn’t coming from ME! Anger.
My abode has been violated. They crashed through a steal entry, and a heavy wood and metal door – bolted and secured spent exactly 17 minutes ransacking the entire house and left through the front door – arrogant – angry. After – someone thought it might be fun to pee in the middle of the living room – angry.
SO, once again, we see that our leaders are either living in a hazy fog of a netherworld, or they are doing it on purpose to bring down a global destabilization – angry. Depends if you believe they are stupid are simply conniving. Because there is really nothing in-between.
Responses to Brussels terrorist attacks:
Cameron – he is ‘concerned’ … really? Now you are ‘concerned’?
Merkel – she says ‘free societies are stronger than ISIS…’ – really? Because that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Hollande – he’s calling for us to all be ‘calm’ and ‘lucid’.
Obama – he just thinks that we all need to ‘unite’ to be friends and brethren – while in Cuba.
Gee guys, I just don’t think your attitude makes me feel all warm and cozy. Doesn’t make me feel safe. Makes me feel like I wish you could feel the violation like they do, like I did, like so many others have! Makes me think – you haven’t a clue!
The boundaries have all been crossed. The values have spiraled into a “see it” version of soft porn on every media site. And nude selfies for the world to see are a yawn that put Playboy out of business.
So – all you mainstream – if you want to know why people don’t want a stereotypical politician – THIS is why. Get over it.
Footnote: they did not steal our guns…

Thanks – agreed! But it is not just the penalties – it’s the complete lack of any rehab – hence repeat offenders account for about 75%…
I watched a UK documentary that demonstrated it was the same offenders who were ending up back in prison.
I also watched a program a few years ago where the Governor of Barlinnie Prison in Glasgow stated that it was not more prisons we needed, but more schools. Although I can understand why, my understanding goes out the window when I have been a victim of crime.
I know and agree, hence my anger right now. But I also know that if the system is ‘broke’ it needs fixin’ and if it ain’t – don’t fix it. Our system is not just ‘broke’, but a thieving mess!
Sorry to read about your abhorrent violation. I can understand your anger.
I have a particular dislike of burglars and with regards to the ones that actually get caught; I do not think the penalties they receive are sufficiently severe.
Stealing from you is bad enough, but what they did to your carpet, no punishment is severe enough.
