FRANK'S VIEWS OF CONTEMPORARY SOCIETY
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 homophobic. 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 vast gun lobby. I am older than 60, which makes me a bit less than I used to be. I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a 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 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. Recently, a sick old woman called me and my friends a basket of deplorables. I need to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found challenges in my life and my thinking! I just can't imagine or understand what's happened to me so quickly! Funny...it's all taken place over just the last 7 or 8 years! And if all this wasn't enough to deal with. I'm now afraid to go into either restroom!
