VOTE!
People Fought and several even gave their Lives so that we could have this Right!
Celebrate That!
Receive that Gift!
Recognize that many People in other Countries do not get to do this!

It’s about Listening.

I find myself immersed in News these past few days.
Listening and Reading and Gravitating toward every speculation and interpretation about what is going on in our Country.

I do not trust the current ruling Majority of the Senate to bring us that.
It is quite a muddle!
America has some skeletons in its closet.

Truth as Truth, not as Truthiness or Post-Truth or MisSpeaking or what we used to call simply “LIES”
HILLARY CLINTON, Not KELLY ANNE CONWAY,
The wretched Gollum Spin-Doctor…
Daughter of RONALD REAGAN’s HateJuice
HILLARY CLINTON who was brought down by Russia, WikiLeakes, the RNC, the FBI, the CIA, and Mysogynistic Fearmongering WhiteMails Everywhere, in an Election she STILL won by 3-Million Votes!
This is AMERICA to Me!
I don’t grab anyone by the Pussy!
