So, the next paragraph about politics is sure to make some people upset, so I just want to clarify, some of my best friends are Republicans, they are warm blooded, intelligent wonderful people, and friends… I am not talking about you in the blanket statement below, mostly the Republican “machine” and I know many of you are as worried about what is happening to your Party as me.
There is an article this week about Hillary Clinton. During this election season it has amazed me how nasty and hate filled messages permeate the media. I don’t understand how a man like Donald Trump is revered by so many and is encouraged by men and woman to continue his misogynist, sociopathic tirades against almost anyone, many of the people who support him would be nothing but fleas to him and yet they think he will protect them. So the more important issue is Hillary Clinton, I have watched in disbelief the continued attacks on her honesty and trustworthiness as the same old madeup, ridiculous issues are brought again and again by Republicans determined to paint her as the most evil woman in the universe. The article this week points out how foolish these attacks are and it is easy to do our own research and understand that something is not true or real just because it is repeated over and over…. that is Trumps trick and he continuously makes statements even after they have been fact checked and determined to be false. Please let’s get smarter and realize we are great, we don’t anyone to make us great “again”, what we need is an experienced, compassionate, intelligent leader, we need Hillary Clinton, she has the ability to work with everyone, poor, rich, business, government, foreign countries and always has the interests of all Americans in the forefront.
This week we have Be Encouraged, Carries Corner, Cats, Dianne Ponders, Others, guest columnist Mel Gurtov local news and political commentary. Just write those letters.
