This kinda sums up how I feel about Trump's Inauguration:

"The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our life-time",
British Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey remarked to a friend on the eve of Britain's entry into the First World War. First published in Grey's memoirs in 1925, the statement earned wide attention as a correct perception of the First World War and its geopolitical and cultural consequences.

A note I got from an old friend on Facebook:

I have known her since high school but have not talked to her in years. I know she follows me on FB. My hair almost caught fire.

We have known each other since high school. You just posted on my Facebook about Republicans and their desire to eliminate the ethics counsel. I am not sure you read what I wrote. The Republicans backed down and the ethics counsel will remain intact because of Trump. He said the Ethics Council is important and will stay. I have liberal friends. All I heard during this election is how Republicans are intolerant, but it is the Democrats who are intolerant of people who don't agree with all Liberal ideas and policies. People with different or opposing views will change the world. A great quote from a broadway play I had the go or of seeing is about a transgender who changed people's perspective. She said "open your mind and change the world. Please practice what you believe, tolerance for different opinions. Obama is not racist or he would not have offered them high cabinet positions. If u tell me they are "token" appointees, then that is racist because you're basically saying they aren't smart enough to see that and that's insulting. Some: where are those women whop accused Trump of groping them along with other attrocious acts. If I had been assaulted by Trump or anyone else and came forward, I would follow thru with prosecution. Many of Trumps executives are women. Hillary paid the women working for campaign less than the women got paid. I honestly do not remember Republicans rioting, or saying awful things about assassinating a Democrat president and I don't remember violence and looting following a Democratic Win. We were friends in high school and .I really hope we can agree to disagree. Give Trump a chance!! Believe me, those who voted for him are going to hold his feet to the fire. He made a lot of promises. But for people to hope Trump fails, they are hoping America fails. Is that what you want to see happen? This is long because I retired on Friday Dec 30th and have time on my hands and because I can't get fired now for writing about my political views. I hope u read all of this and hope udon' unfriendly me, but hey this is America so you are free to do that. Don't be a hater. There is enough of that from other people.

Well I declared war on a relative who whined about The War on Christmas

This is what I said on FB:

Seriously? I have no problem with God or religion. I do have a problem when it is pushed on everyone by hypocrites. I don't care what holiday greeting used if it is said with genuine care. I do mind when it's used to make a point and becomes a weapon. Nobody has ever said that you have to get your religion out of your lives. They have said get your beliefs out of the lives of others who think differently.
Religions are to be kept out of government areas because they represent everyone. If you look at the history of religion in schools, it's not very pretty. Those who don't conform to the specific religious mores that are pushed have become targets of ridicule and intolerance.

AND let's take a look at what the good religious people did. You approved and elected a man who has had no discernible religious beliefs. He has zero idea about forgiveness which is the basis of Christianity. Jesus would run him and his cabinet out of every temple and church on Earth. So spare me the angst about Christmas and God. They will be just fine and strengthened by those who ACT like Christians. For the rest of you, 'Have a Holiday!'

Larry Colburn passed. A man you really should know!

At 18 years old, he aimed his M-60 machine gun at fellow US soldiers to stop the My Lai massacre in Vietnam

RIP Larry Colburn. You are the epitome of courage.
We should hope to exhibit half of your bravery.

I cannot get over this 'election.'

Friends and relatives seem to think this is just shits and grins and they put one over on somebody.
One cousin declared Bannon and Sessions weren't bigots from her perch in New Hampshire.

I have to meditate because I can almost become incandescent with rage.
This is not an effing game!

I am beginning to burn up Facebook and I am name-checking people. They think I'm crazy and I said I had utter contempt for their passivity and acceptance of abhorrent behavior.

Today is the 4th anniversary of Sandy Hook.

Alex Jones pushes the false flag conspiracy and the Dumb Dauphin listens to him.

Those kids and their parents deserve peace and respect.
