Surprise is Unbecoming...

There is a difference between shock and surprise. Surprise is when you don’t see the train coming. Shock is what happens when it hits you.

Allow me to say that I am not surprised by the recent events and press releases of the incoming administration. I am not surprised by the Media’s fawning attentions. I am not surprised by the gluttonous gobbling being performed by the Left when it comes to every detail surrounding His Ascendancy.

I have simply come, in only two and a half months, to expect what has been seen by everyone:

The bill for the Inauguration has now reached a possible amount of $160M, with at least $129M being the (laughingly used) conservative estimate. I will not provide links to this figure’s veracity as it continues to rise daily, and it can be found by anyone with a 4th grade education or higher.

Cabinet spots are being filled (and created) by people who have, shall we say, “conflicts of interest” (or not, in some cases…) inherent to the position.

Campaign promises and policies highly touted as early as last month are now being “re-examined”, minimized, or just plain dropped.

The Liberators of the Ludicrous Left are dusting off their most prized “wish-list” bills for Congress. One of which includes repealing the 22nd Amendment. That’s the one that says the President can have his job for only 2 terms.

The Media’s endless simpering over the above mentioned items when they would be rabidly decrying the same from a Republican.

There’s more, but I won’t bore you with such trivial things on the eve of such a Momentous Occasion…

Shocked? Yes. Surprised? Not in the slightest.

I suspect we will continue to be shocked in the future, and maybe someday soon, we will be shocked into action against such lunacy…

…Because surprise is getting us nowhere.
