An Absolute Model of Restraint

That was The Curmudgeon yesterday, sitting in a diner adjacent to a table of six or seven retirees who were complaining about how the “mainstream media” manipulates the news and misrepresents the president and how they’re looking forward to President Trump restoring some of the freedoms they’ve had taken from them in recent years.

It was all The Curmudgeon could do to stop himself from standing by their table and demanding “Tell me, what freedoms have you lost in recent years?  What freedoms do you think you once had that you no longer have?”

But The Curmudgeon knows the answer:  they have no answer.

And he was an absolute model of restraint.

    I have never been able to get an answer to that question either. Good for you not asking it again. lol

      Well, actually, I have an answer – but it’s not polite. I think I DO know what “freedoms” they think they’ve lost, and what I think they consider “freedoms” most of the rest of us think of as obnoxious.
