Inauguration Day – Not My President?

There will be protests today, as Donald Trump is sworn in as President of the United States. I understand that. It was a polarizing campaign and people still haven’t accepted the results emotionally. Demonstrations though are not the proper response. They won’t make the protesters feel any better, and there is nothing they can do […]

ITYS – II

For the first part of this post, check Thursday’s offering. I have mentioned Donald Trump (and Hillary Clinton) a few times over the past 16 months of the American Presidential election campaign.

I Told You So – I

If you haven’t voted yet, there is still time to do so. I’m curious to see if the readers here mirror the American people. Mind you, last […]

Vote Now!

The American presidential election is Tuesday. Not being a US citizen, I don’t have a vote. I’m not sure how I feel about that. Relieved maybe that I don’t have to accept any of the blame for the outcome. This seems to have been the most polarizing campaign in American history. If I had a […]
