well (D)UH!

liberalism is a mental disorder

…I was not prepared for a conversation I had at Thanksgiving dinner today with my brother-in-law, Henry, who has lived most of his life in a home for the mentally disabled, and though now in his forties has the intelligence level of a six-year-old.

“Obama saved me,” he said to me out of the blue.

“What do you mean?”

“I voted for him for president and now he’s saving me.”

I was taken aback by these words, since Henry had no idea who Obama was, or what a president might be, and would be unable to fill out a registration form let alone get to the polling place by himself. So I asked him how he knew that and how he had registered and cast his vote. In halting, impeded speech he told me that the people who take care of him at the home filled out “the papers” to register him to vote, told him how Obama cared for him, even taught him the Obama chants, and then took him to the polling place to vote. They did the same for all of the mentally disabled patients in their care, approximately sixty in all…

    Unsurprising.

    This is why “vote by mail” is so supported by Lympians.

    Collectivists don’t believe in principles; they believe in outcomes. History is very clear: leftists will never agree to a fair fight.

    This, the dead, 18 year old mush brains, the ethnic undocumented ,Educated Euro Weenies, libs, every medicaid approved home for seniors. The majority voted for him because they approved of his policies.

    *sigh*
    This makes them feel important….
    I worked with MANY “afflicted” folks and that is what they want….
    To feel like they matter.
    Too bad they are brainwashed by the libs who tend to lead them.
    How do we combat this?
    Rhetorical question….

    Not sure how this differs from the voting history and thought process of most (D)voters.

    I think there is a Law against this. There are certainly laws — and a code of ethics — against “care” workers and the social workers in charge of them doing this.

    Perhaps the brother will choose to pursue that.

    Are you sure this story is real? An IQ of a six year old is too smart to vote Democrat… :)

    Laws are racist.

    Yes, in any rational system his brother would be ineligible to vote “due to mental incapacity”, but that wouldn’t be FAIR!

    Speaking of dumb as a rock, it seems PFC. Bradley (Bradlee! Oh BRADLEE!) “I don’t need no steenkin clearance” Manning has got his little whine on again.

    Shut up and bend over, punk.

    Five years in prison, permanent voiding of vote rights.

    Except that apparently vote fraud is legal – if you’re a Democrat.

    I want to go back to my home planet. Sure, there are monsters there, but they’re *honest* monsters.

    My mother has known a couple since long before I was born, the husband suffers from Alzheimer’s. The wife told my mother and some other friends how she took her husband to vote and even though he has no clue to what is going on he voted. This guy tries to put his t-shirt on his foot and had no idea who any of the candidates were.
    Yes, they are registered democrats.
    She felt it was good that she did this.

    aRE WE THROUGH COMPLAINING? Lets take a gun to all their knife fights from now on.

    One huge horror:The coming Inauguration. His Excellency is really gonna blast the the right, Repubs, racists, homphobes, talking trash against any of his enemies that busted his butt over the last 4 years.

    Its going to ug-ley.

    Yes the inauguration. They’ll all be wearing SEIU T shirts. Ahh the garbage and the BS. If Harry tho’t visitors in DC stunk before just think about how it’s going to stink after it’s over. Jamie Foxx will have a front row seat and we may have a Hillary sighting. I can just see a cold and cloudy day but when he puts his hand on the bible to repeat his oath of office the sun will come out and shine upon Him. The Angels will sing hallelooooolia!!! Peace Doves will fly above the crowd.

    A few years back, the president of the local NAACP also worked at a state mental facility–he regularly bussed the patients to the polls and helped them vote.
