please don't get lost in the cesspool of all the side bullshit

I was a hard core Bernie Sanders supporter, still am. He so much reflects the views I stood for when I ran for US Congress many years ago! That said:

These six words scare the hell out of me: 1) Trump
2) The United States Supreme Court

That alone should send a shudder down your spine.

We can deal with all the other bullshit after the election. We have to win this campaign. Put it aside til December.

I have been a Christian all my life but I woke up this morning

believing in Karma. Here the GOP have put Michelle Obama through hell for 8 years and then of all things they parrot her words at their hatefest. Couldn't have turned out better!
