Mad? Naw, mad would take caring about your attention seeking. You ever see somebody watching paint dry and imagine how dull their life must be? More like that.
Oops, (or as we say up here, 0pe) you are correct. In my area it’s almost all Swedish, so my fingers defaulted to the familiar…
Yeah, just guessing, but if she was a German war bride, that means she married a GI, and was probably here, working in American factories. Which yes, did have a great deal of camaraderie among the newly liberated housewives earning real paychecks. Most will tell you it was all great fun until the men came home and they got kicked to the curb and back to the kitchen.
How about stick him in one of the “for profit” prisons he invested in? Let him hang out in the yard with the folks who can give him “presentations” on the “redemptive” work of the “justice” system? (Gosh, okay, that’s super dark for me, but….)
See my comment below about South Dakota :(
Well, at least we’ve stopped dancing around ignoring the Nazis in the room…
Just this week there is an article about one of those quaint, tiny 1800s era Swedish immigrant country churches in South Dakota, that has been taken over by a hate filled, Hitler loving, White Nationalist “preacher.” “Hell burns hotter for some.”
He booted or forced out the old timers and descendants of the founding families who didn’t appreciate his sermons explaining why Jesus loves guns, hates immigrants and gays, and featuring readings of the constitution. He says churches should be in the politics business (umm, remember the tax exemption clause?) His services sound like nothing more than prop bible waving, MAGA/Q conspiracy rallies.
He went ahead and just violated the rules and changed the church constitution (sound familiar) to take control of the cemetery board, a separate entity, because he wants control of the valuable farmland it owns. And he posted armed guards at the door to keep out the folks who disagreed with him when he did it.
So yeah, just the typical small church upheaval when leadership changes, until you factor in that, in this bucolic, rural setting, smack in the middle of the nation, his charismatic preaching and “message” is growing the congregation.
Ahh, I see the confusion, that’s not kiwi. I believe that’s the frog/toad who. as I mentioned earlier, always has that expression and it is a problem for him because the others assume he is ill-tempered. There was a really good strip about how he is really is nice, just misunderstood (I related, that is why it sticks with me.) So, this one kinda doesn’t fit that set up, unless he is just hating being awakened like that, as someone else suggested. That’s possible, just seems harsh. Anyway, yeah, I’ve read Matt’s posts, I do hope he is doing okay. Anyway, I suppose we’ve spent way more time than we probably needed to ruminating on a week-old comic and an imaginary critter, chuckle. It’s been nice chatting with you again.
He has a son?
Okay, had to google that, but I now get the reference, chuckle.
