My brother came by.

I got his W-2s to do his taxes.
I don't think he voted for Trump because he didn't vote. He seems to think that the Trump moves are amusing. He is a moron. However, he does understand more than most. He told me that the problem was that Trump is crazy.

I told him that I had disowned or been disowned by almost all relatives and friends because of their Trump support. I said that the only reason I opened my door to him was because he had helped me a lot before. Then I said "Don't push it."

I also tod him he knew this was different. He knew because I had never acted this way before no matter the election. That should be a big clue.

He zigs and zags. He believes some of the stupid GOP crap. He has shrieked about guns before but he that seems to be the only thing he is still blathering about.

He has really helped me a lot and isn't a religious hypocrite. He has a temporary pass for now.

About 10 years ago he worked for my cousin on his farm. A lot of the basic work was done by Hispanic immigrants, illegal or not. He asked to buy him a small Spanish/English dictionary and one of the learn it yourself courses. He wanted to learn enough to talk to them. He said they needed help and he wanted to at least be able to understand them. That's why I haven't thrown him in Lynches River. Ya never know, ya know.

If you think the protests don't matter or you are discouraged, please read this:

People are watching. And the only hope this nation has is to keep moving loudly and proudly for what we believe!

I think this rendition of "America The Beautiful" is the right version at this time:

Keep posting about President Bannon everywhere.

Trump's ego can't take it and he will dump him.

Here comes Trump:

We are SOL if he cannot be controlled or listen to reason. He is not rational.

Awwwww. A Christian Trumpkin told me "You need to take a seat."

"Bless her heart."
I declined.

This was in response to Franklin Graham saying that refugees arev not a Bible issue. What I wrote:
Please look up the nasty anti-semitic history of 'America First.' I m not saying it was chosen for that but it has a horrible history. Refugees ARE a Bible issue. what do you think Jesus ,Mary, and Joseph were when they fled in the night? If Egypt had built a wall or turned them back, they would have been at the mercy of Herod.

In addition, how people are treated is a Bible issue. A 5 year old boy was kept from his mother. Two people trying to visit a gravely sick relative were turned away. Patients in those countries that were scheduled for life-saving treatment here were told not to come. In addition, we have had NO attacks from people from the 7 countries named in the ban. Trump did not ban 3 countries where he has business. One of them is Saudi Arabia where Osama bin Laden AND the 9/11 hijackers came from. Refugees, especially from certain countries, are vetted very thoroughly. Look up the process.

I don't want to get killed by a terrorist or anybody. This could have been done in a more orderly and humane fashion. We acted inhumanely and NOT like Christians.In addition, Jesus didn't ask for papers, pay stubs or whatever. He said to help. WE started a lot of that hot mess in the Middle East by invading without thinking through the consequences. Go ahead. Ignore your Christian principles and hide behind fear. We don't have to be stupid and blindly let everyone in but we can treat people with decency.

(I guess I'll take my snowflake slf and melt away. NOT!)

DO NOT retweet Trump. RTs give him credit. Some suggestions:

Reality shows need ratings and publicity for oxygen.
Don't RT Trump.
Screen grab to share.
Don't use like as a bookmark.

Don't stoke his ego with RT or Likes.

You can also use @UnfollowTrump he will get no credit for his tweet or retweet count

Trump has made the world a VERY dangerous place for everybody.

He has shown himself to be highly unpredictable and or unstable.
The views of those morons advising him are known to all.

If I were a foreign power, I would be putting my military on an emergency footing whether I announce it or not. I would also ready my nuclear arms. I have no doubt that some of those countries are considering 'first strike' plans.

We are one step away from the unthinkable.
