It is a prideful mid-term election this time around in America. People, all full of pride, have stood up in numbers representing their position to their friends, neighbors, communities, America and to the World. America hasn’t had the marches we’ve seen across the country in the last two years since the 1970’s. And no, none of this dissent from any side has been entirely peaceful—some have died for what they believed, or for who they were or due to where they were. Upheaval never comes without cost and the past two years in America have sadly borne witness to this truism.

“I’m proud to be  American!”

“I’m proud to be gay, a woman, white, black, tall, good-looking, smart, richer or powerful!”

“I’m proud to hate!”

Theologians often place pride above the other so-called seven deadly sins: lust, envy, anger, greed, gluttony and sloth. Yep, Pride is said to be the ,’Root of all evil.’ How. To. Deal. With. That. This discussion could be an, ‘All-nighter.’

This is a 1913 meeting between North and South civil war survivors. Each was proud to serve.

I am proud.

Toss pride anyway you want: I’m proud of Dale, and she happens to be my wife.  I’m proud of her 40 years of effort during her nursing career to help young and old alike to heal or accept their situation and make the best of that. Most of those 40 years she has helped new born’s while working in NICU; some of her patients weigh three or less pounds. Imagine. Of course, I take no credit for any of Dale’s achievements; I’m proud to know her.  And, this election cycle has been no different.

I’m proud of Dale and anyone like her who has jumped in feet first into the mayhem of this 2018 mid-term election.  Dale has worked the phone lines for her party; she has written, talked and text until her fingers were sore, her voice hoarse and her wit’s at wit’s end. Trump may not know it, but he’s been barbed enough to fill a pin cushion.

Dale is one of millions of Americans who have taken it upon themselves to get off their cushy couches and 300 dollar computer chairs and work to turn their beliefs into action. She is one of millions who are busy doing the,’stuff,’ the real hard work of America. Tomorrow, Dale will be driving people to the polls all day. I think this is great.

Hat’s off to all of you who have persevered over the course of the past two years while trying to right the wrongs they see taking place in America today. It’s not certain how our 2018  mid-terms will turn out, but for all of those who have worked to make the world a better place please remember this: no one, nothing, can ever take away your effort and the solace that comes from a job well done. Win or lose, if you have walked door to door, called number after number and marched when you could and filled out every poll you wanted to, congratulations.

Now, we wait for tomorrow’s election outcome, and it may take weeks to know?

It’s no secret that I’m hoping for a, ‘Blue Wave.’ But, even if I have to go to the beach to see one again, I know I did what I could to make it happen.

I have a word of head’s up though for those of you who favor my political position. Please, don’t think that if the, ‘Blue Wave,’ does come in 2018 and then again in 2020 that the battle to right the wrongs in America will be anywhere near over. No, the seed(s) of hate and division have been well planted in our society and these two elections will not be enough to weed them out.

Every morning gives us all a chance for a new day—I’m hoping tomorrow gives America one of those kinds of great vista’s.

Good luck, America.

Cheers.

Some memes do things well, but I doubt any I choose to use here will fit that bill…..

-The Memes say that Cruz is either a Nazi or he has a small penis-so he’s out. Too bad, he’s got a catchy name-Cruz- who wouldn’t want to take one? I can’t believe there isn’t a meme about Cruz taking a cruise-it’s all so wrong!

Meanwhile, when it comes to dirty laundry-Hillary knows where it all hangs out on the Capital Hill, but she may be hiring illegals to do her own. Who knows, right?

oh, I know Bush Jr and Cheney erased ten thousdan plus more e-mails than you did--something like 23 thousand,,,but really? Why follow that lead?

Cleaning dirty laundry take a knack

Chris Christie has bridge issues and should see a dentist. His rash behavior at the cost of workers and other commuters alike regarding ,’Bridgegate,’ raises serious concerns about his sense of fair play, or giving a shit about people.

I absolutely believe this.

I absolutely believe this.

When Purina left–i.e. was forced out– of her CEO position she left her corporate headquarters smelling like tuna fish. Later, we all learned that was just the smell of all her corporation’s money that had gone bad under her leadership.

People who support Jeb Bush say they’d hate to see another dynasty in the house via Clinton? Butttt wait? Wouldn’t Jeb be the third Bush to… whatever.

If Trump isn’t wearing a wig..I say, Why not! There’s something dreadfully wrong there. And he talks about how other people look?

Corn ,hands down.

Corn ,hands down.

The Miami guy does have his own hair-I suspect and I hate that….but there’s another thing I don’t like about Marco-Polo Rubio. He claimed his parents left Cuba to escape from Castro, but really they left before Castro took power. When confronted with his lie for sympathy story Rubio was quick to point out that the real story was Why his parents came to America. Well, to me, the real story is Why did Rubio lie in the first place. To me, the truth is always the real story, and for Marco-polo Rubio that may be hard thing to find.

I’m waiting to see who runs before I throw my hat on any marker.

-I haven’t heard Bernie say anything I disagreed with, but maybe his stance of the gun issue is wobbly…And he’s a Socialist. Don’t Socialists eat people for dinner? Just asking.

Time to eat.

Time to eat.

Hillary? Maybe she’s a tad more experience but more of a two-sided pancake by most accounts and fact checked flip-flops.

Here’s the good news: Ben Carson may not have tried to kill someone, or beat someone’s brains out with a rock in like forty years! There’s a resume’ starter. But heads up-the man’s moved on to dissecting brains for a living, so that’s something. It’s just a bit eerie.

My request is very simple as well. Come on Republicans, give America something to think about the next time around. Dig up Eisenhower, or some other successful guy you have lying around. Change! Heck Trump trumpets change but does he really offer anything to U.S. voters but that the rich will get richer and the middle class poorer?

Bottom line: our money has been devalued too many times not to be noticed at the kitchen table.

Plus, there’s still enough of us alive who remember when maybe America was great, and we’ve seen Reagan and worse, Bush Jr. tank our way of life–and about those on going attacks on Unions? The answer to that is our Republican party blowing in the wind, or pissing into it. NAFTA gets to sit on Mr. Clinton’s lap and lean on Al Gores shoulders, but the real tacks get pinned on regain my ass “I don’t recall” Reagan and the decider, Bush Jr., who made all the wrong decisions. What a pair–and I don’t mean that in a good way, let’s get that straight. Oh gosh, this whole thing is going down a hole.

I realize right off wiht my own children that using leashes was a bad idea since one day they'd use them on me.....see? Ya gotta think ahead.

I’ve a great idea! Let’s stick to the bare facts.

According ot reports, Donald Trumps current wife wanted to show how sexy of a first lady she'd make....Some trophies need polishing, others, not so much.

Donald Trumps current wife is courting the political right to line up those conservative votes for hubby and dollar. This makes ‘cents’, Right? I mean ,really? This is the wife of the conservative leader so far for the Presidency?

In the end, I want a Democrat in the White House….or at this stage, I think we’re screwed. Why, you yell! It’s simple: the Republican trickle down economics has been a HUGE disaster for the middle class working family. The mind-blowing thing is the party still hangs on to that principal when they slather on about what will make this Country great again. It’s a HUGE lie and a worse than that blunder for the Republican party.

Two elections later and the Republican party still can’t learn-that’s scary.  Almost as scary as Trump not wearing a hair piece.

Believe it or not, I’d love for the political Right to come around and start making sense with their platforms, and not cents off the backs of the America workers. Have you ever seen a one-sided penny? Me neither-and the lunacy coming out of the party to the right makes me nervous. Major Tom, where are you?

Forget who’s running for President. Maybe, we all need to just run away? But okay, right now, my hat hangs on Hillary. And for the polls that shout how Bernie is closing in on Hillary, well at least some of that is bullshit coming from the Right who’d rather run against , “The Socialist.”  But the nominations will come, and then we’ll know who’s really in the ring.
