I sincerely don’t understand the American voter right now. I’m supposedly the equivalent of the Trump voter – white, Christian, middle-class, married (ish!), with children, working outside the home – and yet I wouldn’t vote this way at all. Not saying that HRC is a better citizen, but his divisive, ridiculing, temper-inducing, lying, misogynistic rants are disgusting to hear. So his speech last night was a surprise. Who had his leash and why hasn’t they been in control the whole way thru? I can only think that as world citizens we’d be a lot more confident in the next four years if the campaign had been run like this.
To the good news – Corrections boss Ray Smith has recommended to the Parole Board that they reconsider releasing Vicki Letele under compassionate grounds. Common sense! I hope this sets a precedent for how we as a nation care for terminally ill prisoners in the future.
Here’s hoping for the decision today.

Most of us in the US are devastated by the results. HRC actually won the popular vote. It’s a very sad and scary time. 😦
I only know of one in all my circles who voted Trump. At least it’s only 4 years; and doesn’t he have a court case or ten before Jan 20? Someone might lock him up before then!
Yes, do keep in mind that so many of us did NOT vote for him–there are lots of very fine, sane Americans. He does have court cases looming but, if something keeps him from becoming president, I suppose we’d get his VP . . . and that’s pretty darn scary, too.
Hmm I’m have to research that one; I’ve not read much at all about him.
