Inauguration day follies

As expected, the Virginia rightwing blog "The Bull Elephant" went all ga-ga, wetting their pants over Trump's inauguration.  From their comments, you would have thought it was the Second Coming of Christ -- in fact, it was the Coming of the AntiChrist.

I pointed out that the first executive order issued by Trump was one that overturned an Obama action that lowered the mortgage insurance premium paid by FHA mortgage holders.  Immediately, one of the Bull Elephant know-nothings told me I didn't know what I was talking about and my report was fake news.

I tried to reply to him by posting links to numerous news articles confirming my statement.  However, when I tried to post my response, I was informed that I had been BANNED FROM THE BULL ELEPHANT!!  (More about that later.)

Trump's first executive order will immediately raise the mortgage payments for 750,000 to 850,000 middle income families.  Don't believe me?  Read about it here and here and here and here.

Now, as for my being banned from the Bull Elephant -- I don't know if I should:
-- slit my wrists and bid farewell to this cruel world, or,
-- contact the owner of The Bull Elephant and beg for forgiveness, or,
-- pour a drink and celebrate the fact that I pissed off a bunch of rightwingerdingers by posting the truth to the point that they felt threatened and banned me!!!

Meanwhile, if anyone from that other Bull Elephant read this, this one's for you:
