Down a rabid hole, no doubt? (no sic)

A great video. Ms Wilhelm has made it big.
But this follow-up article is just as much a gem, warning us that fast food restaurants and staggered family dinners lead to drug use, crime, spiritual decay and the idolatry of the TeeVee machine.
Ms Wilhelm appears to be on the same brain wave with deer but I must dispute some of her personal findings concerning dinner. First of all, while fast-food restaurants may lead to drug abuse and crime, just think about all "the gay" that was prevented when mobs of Palin's troglodytes rushed off to eat at the nearest Chic-fil-A. And as for Godlessness, I'm sure Kathleen wasn't vetoing the dinnertime viewing of my classic TeeVee re-run collection, "The Best of Jim Bakker and Ted Haggard." I always watch those two before eating when I have no one else to pray with.
Gee, I wonder if I'll ever run into them at Chic-Fil-A?
But truth be known, Kathleen's erudite treatise on family dinners has me stirring! The knuckle-dragger in me is ready to march for year-round Thanksgiving dinners at my local fancy-sit-down Denny's. Plus, Denny's has that wonderful history of refusing to seat the "wrong" Americans - like black FBI agents, and probably a president. Family dinners would be as pure as... well... a clean white sheet (with holes cut out for eating, of course).
Praise the Lord, and pass the peas!

Back when I was growing up we didn't have polio vaccine. Now, nincompoops like you are not vaccinating your children and putting the rest of us at risk. But what do you expect from a society filled with home-schoolers who believe dinosaurs and humans cohabited the planet and like the great unwashed of the Dark Ages believe in a geocentric, un-evolving Universe. You call collecting Social Security an "entitlement" despite the fact that it's a bank account that we've been paying into for our entire work lives. You allegedly believe in the sanctity of life in utero but guaranteeing healthcare for a critically ill 5-year-old or elderly person with a preexisting condition you consider a communist plot to take over the country. You don't seem to know that the Affordable Healthcare Act (what you call "Obamacare") was engendered in a right wing think tank in 1988, adopted as the health plan of the 1994 Republican national ticket and eventually found implementation as "Romneycare" in Massachusetts in 2003. In 1973, Richard Nixon proposed replacing the entire private insurance cabal with universal healthcare (Medicare for all). If Obama's a socialist, Nixon must have been somewhere to the extreme left of Mao Tse Tung.
As for welfare, the government spent $33 billion in total for all programs last year while spending 500 billion of defense alone. Bush spent twenty times more than our entire welfare budget (in five minutes) just to bail out a handful of Wall Street crooks.

That's right. The American Medical Association is part of the great liberal conspiracy to create syndromes so the 47% don't have to work. Er, make that the 53% who don't want to work since, as it turned out, Romney and Ryan were part of the 47%.

"Wake up and smell the Kool-Aid?"
What is the attraction between you fundamentalists and Kool Aid?
And as for Man having dominion over the rest of the animals on the planet according to your reading of the Bible, how do you know deer don't have their own Bible and it's not so favorable to man? As you know,God has left us signs.

Gosh, it's a family dinner right out of a Norman Rockwell painting in the 1950s.
Back when families could enjoy dinner together because not every adult member of the family had to work a second or third "swing" job to stay alive. Back when unions were strong and the rich paid taxes at a rate of 91% - not Romney's 14%. Back when the wealthiest CEOs made 10 times an average worker's salary, not 1,200 time their salary and a worker's salary actually increased with time. That used to help pay for the good crystal and decorative linens.
Now we sit in front of the TV during our brief food breaks to find out whose teachers and first responders are getting fired, whose plant is moving to China and whose water supply is being poisoned by frackers (although flames coming out of your faucet and earthquakes under your house are strong clues).
But the Lord works in mysterious ways and I'm sure those deer signs you don't understand are part of his greater plan.

The gomint puts up those confounded deer signs in school zones which invite deer to safely cross the road and walk right into our schools... and that's why we have to arm first graders.

No, it's deer that are going to take your stuff.
And they're going to take it because that dang gomint constructed deer signs everywhere to let them know where they can cross to get to your house.
