Unknown

Wow, has it been four months since I have been here.  I guess I have been stewing too much about what our liar-in-chief in DC is doing and sometimes find it difficult to get going.  I must try harder in the future.

What can I write in the era of Trumpism

I knew that it had been awhile since spouting off about this or that, but I had not realized that it had been so long.  Now the Donald gives me a lot to grieve about but I am not sure whre to begin.
[Well, at the begining of course.]

So, here goes.

While the possbility of war on the Korean peninsula worries me greatly, I hope it can be avoided but closer to home is the desire of some Republicans to cut back on the Medicare budget is more worrisome.  I would resent that greatly.  Having paid into the fund for so many years that it is appaling that the government has, according to some, raided the Medicare funds for other uses over the years, and now wants to cut back on even more.  It is especially appaling as these jerk in D.C. have got the best healthcare in the country but spend a few dollars more on us poor folks?  NO, they can't have that.

As for Trump, it is so sickening that he supports a judge who has had unlawful sexual relations with a minor but won't fess up to doing things to woman that he should not have.  He calls it "locker room trash talk", or some such thing.  Well, maybe it was but he said he did it but won't confess that those were unspeakable actions and he supports people like Judge Moor and others but wants to rid of people don't support him.

And then there is the matter of former FBI Director Comey.  Why did he fire him?  What was the real reason.

I used to be a news junkie but now I shy away from the news a lot especially when that mealy mouthed SOB in Washington is on.  At the very least I hit the mute button on the TV and I may leave the room too as I can't even stand the sight of his face.

And now a meaningless press conference.  Arghhhhhh......

There must be a subject here somewhere...

What can I say?  What will Trump and Co. mean for the USA and the world?  Who will suffer?  Who will be satisfied?   Questions, questions, questions...

At times I feel that he is just a big pussycat whose growl is greater than his bite.  Then at other times I don't think that and fear, at the very least, what his team and advisors might do.  Especially iffy is the way the Trump/Pence will deal with minorities especially Muslims and gay men and women.

I know we have heard it all since the election but I just hope that most Americans will accept him and give him a chance to govern.  If things do not go well there are lawful ways to make changes so rioting in the streets will accomplish absoluately nothing.

There are days I feel depressed and hold out little hope for this country.  I especially worry about the Supreme Court where Trump will set this country back a number of years with conservative appointments.  Then how is he going to deal with heads of other governments?  Will he observe standard protocols or will he make a fool of himself in their presence.

In closing I will put my full support behind the elimination of the Electoral College.  Trump was right that the election was rigged but not in the way he expected.  In recent years Al Gore and now Hillary Clinton had more popular votes than Electoral and should have been elected but that rigged way of doing things did them in.

Mental Health

Just wondering if I will survive the next eight days mentally and emotionally.  Then, on the day after the election, will it be a great sigh of relief or complete and utter dispare?

Election and other crap

Eee gods and litle fishes , as one of my relatives used to say, but has it been almost a year since posting here?  What is the matter with me?  Actually, one thing that bothers me greatly and I have not wanted to harp on this issue all year and that is the presidential election coming up in 11 days.

Just now however I have learned that the FBI Director has reopened the investigation into one or more of Hillary Clinton's e-mails which he said may be pertinent to their investigation.  Coming so close to the election makes me highly suspicious of what is going on.

The Trump has been calling her "Crooked Hillary" all year but I think Trump is the crooked one and I greatly fear what could happen to this country and to the world should he win the election.  In fact, I think Trump and Philippine President Duterte should both find some small island to rule as Dictators and be gone from the scene and Trump could even build another hotel there.

I will watch the election results on TV as I usually do but with lots of G&Ts standing by to celebrate her win or drown my sorrows should he win.  Ahrrrrgggg.......

Two of  the biggest things that worry me about Trump is his idea to build a wall on the border with Mexico and have them pay for it.  Well, the president of Mexico has already said they would not pay for such a wall.  Then there is Trump's idea that he can get rid of ISIS.  How?  That I would like to see however I fear he might even makes things worse.

Well, 11 days to go.  Wish I could sleep through 10 of those days so we could get this thing over, one way or the other.  This campaign is driving me crazy.

Peace

Guns, guns, and more guns

Some people are once again urging that everyone who is legally allowed to have guns, carry them.  This would presumably, prevent mass shootings.  Well, this presumes two things.  One, that gun owners are clairvoyant and thus would know when the next outbreak of violence would occur, and two, that the legal gun owner, would be such a good shot that he could hit the perps and not cause more casualties.

Such a simple solution to a complex problem is not a good idea in my mind.
