wow, you really want her to go on a work trip (that can easily be postponed one week) after she has told you that the only other adult in the house will be away at a conference (that can't be rescheduled) at the same time? This means leaving the 16 year old home alone with no adult supervision except his 18 year old brother for an entire week.  Really?

Some cabinet picks have raised an eyebrow.  My question to myself on these is, is he putting a leash on them or turning them lose.  I do hope the former.  Have to wait and see.  And that is what I will do.

that's too bad   {#Hug}



the system has conditioned and convinced people (most of them good folks) to suspend logic and reason and vote along party/tribal lines because that's the only path to victory

winning is everything

are you a hatfield or a mccoy?

holding up two super shitty candidates and then getting upset when the results come in

because selective political moralizing

Not that anyone cares outside of a small circle of friends ...

Way back during the election season of 2008, I remember being taken to task by BHD over my use of the argument that anyone who supports Obama must be ______ or ______ .   She spoke directly and publicly to me about how such blanket statements were both wrong and offensive.  I took it to heart and realized that it is indeed wrong and offensive to go down that kind of road and ever since then have avoided (as much as possible) deliberately using all inclusive statements that would suggest that anyone who _____ must be _____ .   IIRC, I thanked her for bringing it to my attention and proceeded since to try and modify my arguments to dealing with a subject as much as possible sticking to the subject or public figure and avoiding including their supporters in broad brushed descriptions of the subject at hand.  When speaking in terms of D's or R's, the subject was regarding the party leadership and not in terms of the rank and file (aka you and me).

Here we are 8 years later and there are constant and plenty of unbridled statements about anyone who supports Trump is _____ and _____ and worse.  Fine be that way.  I'm sure that it makes you (who ever the shoe fits) feel better.  But it will not get any one who is being attacked to try and see things your way.  But if you are going down that road, I bet you really don't care about that anyway.  

So have fun.  Just remember that in doing it this way you are attacking people personally and in very offensive ways.  I have tremendously thick skin.  But I can only speak for myself about how thick my hide is.  I am speaking more for those who might take personal offense than myself.  In expressing these thoughts this way, you are building walls and burning bridges between yourself and them.  Someday you might need 'them'.  Or maybe you won't.  But to dismiss someone based upon one aspect of their whole is pretty remarkable.  Just don't expect their help, sympathy or empathy when you should stumble and find out that you are not invincible and self reliant as you think you are.

In another way to put it.  I know some Deadheads who voted for Trump.  Go figure.

rant over.
