In a way, I am glad you are not here to see this charade, this circus, the carnival of spectacle that is our nation's political world right now.
As I wrote the other day, there will be a lot of political content over the next four weeks until the election. It is necessary.
ORIGINAL LINK to the following article.
How about trying to convince me that there are worse things than bigotry? Please name them. I grew up in Texas during the Jim Crow era, so I am painfully aware of the poisonous fruits that grow from the bitter seeds of prejudice. Trump has been sowing those seeds, and the ugly behavior of Trump fans at campaign rallies is a frightening reminder of how quickly intolerance can turn into violence. Still, it is fair to say that bigotry is not his only noxious trait: He is a vulgar, arrogant, self-centered liar with the emotional maturity (and vocabulary) of a 12-year-old schoolyard bully. The man claims to be a billionaire, but he can’t buy himself two cents’ worth of class.
Are you bound by party loyalty? If that is your highest principle, then by all means support your party’s nominee. Do not expect anyone to respect you for that, however, especially not Trump, who will simply see you as weaklings and chumps. Do you think he’ll keep his promise to support the Republican Party platform and allow GOP leaders to set the nation’s policy agenda? This is a guy who breaks promises whenever it suits him, whether they’re business contracts or marriage vows. You know all of that and you still support him.
Reflect and connect.
Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.
I miss you so very much, Mom.
Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
