A Regular Guy No More

December 12, 2016

I used to think I was just a regular guy, but...
    I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist. 
    I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today's standards, makes me a fascist.

    I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobe.
    I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business.

    I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel. 
    I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which now makes me a member of the rabid gun lobby.

    I am older than 70, which makes me a useless old man.
    I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the mainstream media tells me, which makes me a true reactionary.

    I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.
    I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a vast right-wing extremist.

    I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual's merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.

    I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant.
     And, now an angry old white woman is calling my friends and me a basket of "deplorables."
Please help me come to terms with the new me...because I'm just not sure who I am anymore!
I would like to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found changes in my life and my thinking! I just can't imagine or understand what's happened to me...and so quickly! It's all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years! And as if all this isn't enough to deal with...now I'm deathly afraid to go into either the men's or the ladies restroom!
