via Daily Prompt: Retreat
My early morning newspaper read never fails to give me thoughts to ponder before the day overtakes with desired and undesired responsibilities. This word – Retreat – stands out when compared against a LETTER TO THE EDITOR which scoffs at those of us that simply do not like Trump and wish deeply there were a way to avoid his undeserving upcoming role.
This letter writer desires that we quit -” WHINING” – yet he obviously is part of the group of objectors led by the senatorial leader that we paid to whine by leading with the mantra – “Our top priority is to make Obama a one term president.” If the purpose of our two party system is to simply oppose the party in power as stated by the senator from Kentucky then not to whine would be an indication that a retreat was underway.
To retreat at this stage of the battle is totally unacceptable and whining is a tool but it has to be nourished and sharpened in order to strike deep and be reusable for many blows. All whines must be accurate and based upon successful facts. A successful fact cannot be wordy. It has to be more in the order of a bumper sticker so the Red-Hats can comprehend.
An Example – ROMNEY SPEAKS TRUTH. Romney was 100% truthful when he told us that 47% do not pay taxes. Romney was 100% truthful when he informed us: “Here’s what I know: Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud,” . This is such a good tool. It must be sharpened regularly.
