"What the hell does IMPEDIMENT mean? You need to STOP making up words! All Democrats make up words!!"


Longtime reader/pal Blondetwit lives in Washington (the state) and wrote this in Comments under the post CNBC’s Jim Cramer: “My dad, a vet, won’t be allowed to vote in Pa…” and I had to share it with all our readers. Jaw-dropping:

In what became a heated argument the other day over this very issue, my opponent in the convo said that I would "Go to hell, as all liars, cheats and frauds go to hell, and that he knew I'd like it there because that's where ALL democrats go...", so I calmly responded, "I have no problem with voter ID as long as there is absolutely NO IMPEDIMENT to getting that ID".

His response, "What the hell does IMPEDIMENT mean?  You need to STOP making up words!  All Democrats make up words!!....."

Need I say more?

However, this man is a local person of some reputation (not sure what that reputation is these days), but has been held in respect.  

So the guy who condemns all Democrats to hell, who calls them liars, cheats, and frauds has the vocabulary of a third grader. And is well-respected.

Imagine how respected he'd be if he knew what the word "apology" meant. Or "civil." Or "educated."

    As a retired teacher, this makes me very sad.  I value a good education and knowing things and getting them right, so it is of great concern to me when we have people like the one in the exchange with Blondetwit who willingly parade their ignorance before the world and take pride in it.  These types of people pass their attitudes onto their kids!  It's no wonder to me why so many of our kids today don't value education as highly as they should/could.  What value is there in knowing things when they can see people like Allen West, Steve King, and J0e Walsh  get elected to Congress, say stupid sh*t, raise funds by doing it, and be praised for saying it?

  • Remember when then-candidate Obama said in 2008 {referring to the birthers}, "it's like these guys take pride in being ignorant"?

    I think this guy was one of the people he had in mind . . .

  • They exist, and most have them, but settle their use by looking at them, longingly, on the shelf.  Beneath the phone book.

  • 😉  An acquaintance who heard the exchange asked me, "How come you stayed so calm?  I'd have bashed his head in!".  

    Therein lies the problem.  

    I appreciate people who can take an argument out further than a single level.  I'll fall in lust with a person who can carry through the secondary level, and I'll give my heart to the person who can ambulate around the tertiary argument...let alone be able to dance within it.  Oh crap.  I am going to hell.  I made up another word.  My bad.
