No posting here for quite some time, due to the fact that I’ve been vacationing in Vermont. The main purpose of this post is to make it clear that I’m still alive.
One of the advantages of having no television is that I am spared watching conventions, so I have followed each second hand, so to speak. This week we’ve been getting feedback from blogs and Twitter. So, based on what we’ve seen I conclude that the Republican convention was a poorly managed travesty, pitched directly and only to the Foxaholics who thrive on fear and hate, while ours was inspiring, until Hillary spoke.
I did think I’d share this. One of our houseguests gave me a gift yesterday.
Unfortunately, I’m in a bit of a quandary. Being a chocolate lover, I am tempted to eat it. But then I won’t have it anymore. I guess you can’t have your chocolate bar and eat it too.
Anyway, as we’ve known for many moons, Bernie will not be our candidate, but we can say this about the candidate we have: We know how bad she will be, but there’s absolutely no way to know how bad their’s will be, except that we know that he will absolutely be worse than her. It’s not much, but it’s the best we can do. And just for the record, my opinion of Hillary is in no way tainted by either the email “scandal” or Benghazi, both of which are typical trumped up (should I use that phrase?) Clinton bashing.
This, by the way, will be the last negative thing I have to say about Hillary until after the election. We’re stuck with her, so we have to make the best of it. My last negative observation is this: looking ahead to 2020, we are in deep trouble.
