People are funny. One of my Facebook pals who lives in Iowa attended a Bernie Sanders event yesterday. It was a small gathering, and she ended up standing right next to him. And….CBS news covered it! So there she was! My friend on national TV news!
When I went to share this with someone in my office, I was greeted with all the reasons why Hillary Clinton would be a terrible president. That was not the reason I shared the photos. I was talking about my FRIEND being on NATIONAL NEWS.
I was amazed. I was NOT looking for a fight or a debate. I was trying to share a picture because it was neat for my friend. She is a huge Bernie supporter, and this was a dream come true for her. She posted that she hugged Bernie and his wife, but she was too slow on the mark to get a selfie.
Back to my co-worker……I was then told that if the election comes down to Trump and Clinton, this person simply will not vote. Period. End. *raised voice and lots of gesturing wildly and flinging arms like a windmill*
I found my Zen. Thank goodness I found my Zen. I hope my answer was brilliant. I said, “If you don’t vote, you can’t open your mouth and complain about anything presidential, right?”
There was agreement. Yes. Yes. Yes. No vote means no complaining. *more raised voice and more adamant arm flinging*
I went on to say, “You know, I hope it DOES come down to Trump and Hillary. For my sake. Then you will keep your mouth shut for four whole years!”
I find it very interesting that people I know who supported Trump early on have slowly backed away. At least I hope they have. They are being very quiet about it. I know how hard it is to admit you’re wrong. So maybe if you don’t say anything people will forget that you aligned yourself with someone as nuts as Hitler.
Well, that’s it for now. I was just informed we have an active shooter in Balboa Park. Who knows what this will mean? One of my staff was already at the museum and said police response is incredible. The shooter is right in the flight path of the San Diego International Airport. Now there is talk of diverting flights in case this nut job shoots at planes.
And THIS is why I hate guns and refuse to own one.
