Golf course is no dump
Wife's no frump, that's why we stump
Democrats for Trump

Trophy

Trophy

Send that vile dentist
To Cecil's protected park
And let him roam there.

Offshore drilling

Beaches will get hurt
Seas 'round us may well blacken
No oil drilling here!

Interactions

For no special reason, and certainly no ominous one, I just want to express especially to Gwen but also to my family, extended family, and to teammates, opponents, business colleagues, business rivals, and to all of my huckleberry friends, whether still with us or not, THANKS.

RELIGION

A recent spoof reported that the American Psychological Association was considering whether, in extreme cases, following the directions of an unseen God could be deemed a mental illness. This engendered some outrage and much discussion.

There is, I think, a consensus that  organized religion has done a lot
of good and caused a lot of bad.

As a liberal American, I believe strongly in separation of church and
state. (No government action should be involved and no official should participate as such in the National Prayer Breakfast; no Ten
Commandments in courtrooms. on government lawns, etc.). Also, freedom of religion. Hard to deal with the thought of a country enforcing one religion.

 For many individual believers, religion has brought much comfort. For the world, it has inspired great music, art, literature, and poetry.  For non-believers,  talking or listening to an imaginary being is quite odd but it does not make sense to consider those who do mentally ill, or wackos.

"Democrats lose control of presidential event 

A town hall for liberal activists featuring two Democratic presidential candidates was interrupted by dozens of demonstrators on Saturday who shouted down the contenders and demanded they address criminal justice issues and police brutality."

This ugly, short-sighted performance reflects poorly on the Net Roots group and to some extent on the Democratic party.
