Right after the election I had dinner with scritchwuff. We talked about the election and I realized that we essentially lived on the same political street except my house was on the left and his was on the right. There was no great wall between us, only a small fence across which we could easily share thoughts and ideas. Both of us had been leaning towards Johnson, but his stupid was only slightly less than Trump's. I had voted for him in '12, but I just couldn't bring myself to doing it this time around. Both Scritch and I agreed that the best outcome of the election was hopefully a nail in the coffin to both the Bushes and the Clintons. Our country does not need political dynasties. The other thing we agreed on was that hopefully the Religious Right no longer has the sway they did 10-20 years ago. The great definition of hypocrisy is for a Christian conservative to say how great it is to have Trump as a president. Trump truly is the anti-Christ in that his beliefs and actions are probably the most un-Christlike in American political history. That's fine with me! In fact the more I thought about it, Trump is probably one of the first Republicans I could possibly vote for; a fiscal conservative and a social liberal. We'll see if he can pull either one of those off without getting mired in the swamp of DC that he so wants to drain. I'm all for spending big bucks on infrastructure, but I cringe when he says our military is woefully under-funded. That and the urge to cut taxes on the wealthiest. Once again...we'll see. Something that has already made me do a *facepaws* are the rumors coming out about cabinet positions. There was great joy among railfans when John Mica lost his seat in the House. He was the loudest proponent for killing Amtrak. Now there are rumors that he could be appointed Secretary of Transportation. Ugh. Of course closer to my heart are the rumors about the possible Secretary of the Interior...Sarah Palin. Oh sweet Jeebus. Come on, early retirement offer!
BTW...My new icon was created by myself using a photomorphing app on my phone. Orangotrump!
