Therapy For Post-Election Stress? Yes, It Exists.

Everyone knew that the city of San Francisco was less than normal in the realm of what is considered ‘normal’ in the western world. Letting illegal immigrants, who are convicted of crimes multiple times, out of jail until they finally kill some innocent young girl walking on the city streets, is definitely not “normal.”

But New York City and Chicago have joined this insanity. The Major of Chicago, who used to be in the White House, gave a speech, openly defying Federal law.

The NYC Mayor continues down that same path. NYC will now provide municipal employees “therapy” for post-election stress, so they can handle the loss of their favorite candidate. Wait, there is more. This therapy will be extended to people who are under “holiday stress.” Where will it end? Well, the voters got what they voted for. Don’t blame the mayors.

Colleges and universities actually started providing therapy, special rooms for those under post-election stress, with “therapy animals,” like dogs, stuffed animals, crayons, playdough, and coloring books. But don’t dismiss this as just stupidity.

There is a motive. Brainwashing. The motive is to get our children used to looking to government for solutions to all their problems. That “state” is your father.

On the other side of the political spectrum, have you noticed the “thank you” tour of President-elect Trump? First of all, what a great idea to say “thank you” to all the people who supported him.

He gets up to 30,000 to these events, people who stand in line for hours, in the cold, to hear the president-elect. The candidate for the Dems got a few hundred people at her events. That alone told us that the polls were all wrong. It was not “rocket science.” She finally had to get pop stars to her events just to have an audience. The problem was that the people didn’t show up to see her, but just for the singers.

What stands out is that at all the Trump appearances, he is surrounded by Christmas Trees. And he said, it’s “now OK to say Merry Christmas again.” Many Americans love that. “Political correctness” is on the way out.

We have lots of Jewish friends, and also some Muslim friends. They have no trouble saying “Merry Christmas” to us. So why is it that politicians always want to divide us and regulate what we can say or do? There is a motive.

Wish a Merry Christmas to everyone, and a beautiful holiday season to those who celebrate a different holiday.
