Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #471 - Third Debate - What Just Happened? "Such a nasty woman."
Hi Mom, So Liesel and I watched the entire debate last night. We thought we might fall asleep during it as it started at 9 p.m. but being aghast constantly at what Trump said or flabbergasted with confusion as to what he was talking about kept us awake. Just puzzling over how the conversation went from our huge National Debt to Trump claiming that all these NATO nations need to "pay up" as in they owe us something was min-boggling, and of course, Trump made no effort to reference what he was talking about.
But it was less a circus than the last farce, Debate Two. Clinton came off very presidential and spoke passionately, especially on women's issues, their right to choose and their right to live in a world not filled with sexual predators and assaulters who disavow even knowing them let alone committing the assaults.
The debate was a huge win for Hillary Clinton who knew issues, spoke intelligently, had facts at hand, has actual platforms and plan statements at her web site, and truly cares about ALL of the American people. Her opposition to Trump's deportation and wall building ideas made his America sound a lot like Nazi Germany just before World War Two.
Though it pains me to do so, I must give Trump a tiny bit of credit as his condemning of NAFTA is quite true, and in a rare moment when I had a fact, it is actually true that under the Obama administration the US has deported more people than under any other president in American history, though temper that claim with population growth.
But neither of these small wins for Trump persuades me to think he is even worthy to be a candidate for president let alone a president. He just was not 100% wrong about everything. Likewise, Clinton deflected in a classic politician type way on the subject of the Clinton Foundation, but then I have read reports that all the accusations of quid pro quo and the like about the Foundation are the usual scare-mongering and red herring fallacy work of the Trump camp.
And so, some re-posting, because Bitch Magazine, of which I am a proud supporter and quite fond, nailed some stuff about the debate smartly and powerfully and also provided some good links for other material that's worth a look. Thanks, Bitch.
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.
