Peaceful Transition of Power


screen-shot-2016-12-16-at-12-10-40-amYesterday was difficult for me.  It was the first time since 1964 that my mother and I did not watch an inauguration together.  It was hard.  She started me in GOP politics when I was just a little kid.  By the time I was a little older, I would be allowed to stay home from school and watch the whole day.  It was considered educational.

Not only that, but my oldest niece published her obit yesterday.  My sister called, mentioning that it could not have been an easy day.  Thank goodness for Twitter.  If I was a little nastier than usual, that’s why.  It kept me busy.

Two of the most important dates, for me, in the life of our nation are election day and inauguration day.  We celebrate the peaceful transition of power.  It makes our nation unique.  We were the first, and we remain the best.  It doesn’t matter how low-down and dirty things are, during the inauguration, we come back together, and behave like grown-ups, for at least a few hours.

That’s the way it should be.  Unfortunately, this year, things are different.  Please, don’t insult my intellegence by saying it is about Hillary Clinton.  It isn’t.  It is about George Soros.  It is about George Soros trying to take over the country, via the Democratic Party, the way the Brother’s Koch attempted to hijack the the GOP.  The only way we’ve been able to save the GOP is eight years of Obama and basically what amounted to a Trump purge of the party.  It is going to take the Dems going completely insane in order for normality to begin to settle once again.  Until then, the Dems are completely insane.  They’re a lost cause.
