The election is over – Thank you GOD! – and I really thought I’d get here much sooner, just to express my appreciation that we were done with it. But we aren’t. People seem to be more hatefully divided in politics than I can ever remember. Continue reading

Surely goodness and mercy will follow you all the days of your life!

NOT! The hopeless, miserable bastards in our society need a life sentence of their own poison.
