I was born there, in Santa Maria. Can't afford to live there anymore though. I can barely afford to live in Nevada.

Fish and whistle, whistle and fish
Eat everything that they put on your dish
And when we get through we'll make a big wish
That we never have to do this again...again?...again?

Folks identified more with their states than they did the country, as I do now.

You were a New Yorker, Michigander or Virginian before you were an American.

The thing is the internet and social media have become the weapons and the battle field. Trump has turned Twitter into a weapon. Fortunately other public people have realized this and taken up Twitter arms successfully.

We are in the battle of our lives for our country, but our enemies feel exactly the same way, right or wrong. Taking power in the House, or even eventually having a Democratic President and Senate will not end this at all. They will fight as hard as we have in the last two years. They are convinced of their righteousness.
