From an opinion piece in Townhall.........> Why They Hate Him,,,,

"Clear and simple, liberals hate Trump because he beat Hillary Clinton. Period. End of story. They are so overcome by anger and hatred, they fail to realize that until recently, Trump could have been their candidate."

"I say “until recently” because Trump is transitioning…transforming…changing. Prayer works, and Trump’s blanketed…covered with it."

"Another huge factor in this evolution is that with each fake news report or violent riot or piece of leaked information – Trump is becoming less like a liberal and more like Ronald Reagan. Who Trump was during the primaries is not who he is today."

"Liberals can’t handle that this immoral man received a moral mandate to do what is right for America."

"And, by gosh, he’s doing it, despite the snotty-nosed brats who continue to throw tantrums and wet their pants every time Trump takes positive action to restore America to her former greatness."

AN OLD FRIEND AND A LITTLE BIRD

So there I was, just scrolling through my faceb**k, when a notice popped up for a friend request.....Now, I get a lot of those, but seldom respond. I used to think, sure, why not, the more the merrier, but then I found myself doing a lot of house-keeping........deleting posts that were really annoying, asking me to like and re-post to prove that I cared about abandoned puppies or whatever....you know the stuff....But sometimes there will be a welcome surprise..A long lost friend.

That's what happened today. Turns out we have a fb friend in common......So I clicked on it and up comes the face of a man who I haven't seen or heard of since he left for college. When I saw his name and face, I immediately got a huge grin on my face and a little bird flew into my heart and sat there singing. That bird told me that I had once loved this person with such a sweet love, a kind of love that I haven't felt for a long, long time, actually had not appreciated at the time.

Our friendship started in middle school, when we found ourselves next to each other a lot because we have the same surname...........Everyone thought we were cousins.....LOL.........and we played along. We spent a lot of time together over the next 6 years. ...You know what, I forgot all about him.....I'm starting to remember more.......I never considered him as boyfriend material, I don't think he thought of me that way either, though I remember him giving me gifts.....always books or music......they were always right-on........

Funny how all of a sudden I'm flooded with memories that weren't there an hour ago........Memory is fascinating, the storage and access..... Anyways, it's fun for this old heart to be visited by such an exotic memory bird.

FELON DISENFRANCHISEMENT LAWS IN THE US

I was watching a video recently in which a reporter was asking people who they voted for and why. Most of the answers were quips and cliches, but there were these 3 young men who were really thoughtful and articulate and had some interesting points to make.2 of them said who they voted for, but the third one, who was the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable didn't say who he voted for, so the reporter asked him again and he sort of tripped over a word, swallowed and said with a catch in his throat, that he can't vote because he;s a felon.........Whoa!.. I never came across this before......I thought about this and did some research.........6 million Americans were prevented from voting in the 2016 election because of Felon Disenfranchisement laws......and most of them will never be able to vote. Think about it.....A major part of your citizenship is revoked.......A young man makes a mistake....and loses his right to participate in the selection of his leaders,in deciding what laws will determine his children's futures....

Liszt said recently that America is still the free-est country in the World. I thought that was naive considering the US has the highest incarceration rate in the world, for-profit prisons and the strictest felon disenfranchisement laws..One fifth of the African American population is disenfranchised...........Free-est country in the world?
