Should I deck him? He really deserves it.

Of course, I won't. He's my same age, but a frail diabetic and I'm in pretty decent shape for an old man. I'd never hit him although he's threatened ME with a knockout twice now. AS IF!

I'm talking about my next door neighbor. A trumpian, as you might have already guessed.

In this latest instance he and I were chatting about the result of the LSU - Alabama game (we're both LSU fans) and the subject of one of the CBS commentators came up.

Me: "I agreed with Gary Danielson. There was no excuse for that last touchdown by Alabama. What were our coaches thinking?"

Neighbor: "That's true, but Gary Danielson is an idiot."

Me: "I rather like him. He's smart and objective."

Neighbor (a hot head who can't bear to be contradicted): "HE'S AN IDIOT. That's a fact! You don't know anything about sports!"

Me: "Well, those are not facts but opinions. And you're entitled to them. Even though they're wrong."

Neighbor (apparently aware that I don't care much for his trumpism): "I'm sick and tired of liberals liking the wrong things and the wrong people!"

Me: "Well, I don't like a particular racist Russian puppet pervert crook.... but you do."

Neighbor: "YOU CAN'T CALL ME THOSE THINGS! I'll knock your fucking head off!"

Me: "Well, that ain't gonna happen. And I didn't call you those things, but that's what you voted for and what you still like."

Neighbor: "YOU'RE A DAMN....."

I didn't catch the end of that flak because I got into my car to drive to the grocery store.

LMAO

Most interesting thing about this story? My browser here is trying to capitalize "trumpian" and "trumpism" and "trump" every time I type it in.

2. The trouble with those people you can be talking about the

weather and they always somehow have make it some kind of political argument. The best thing is just say hi and don't get involved in any conversation. It is useless.

3. Isn't that the truth?

About three days ago I was in a store looking at some hiking boots and I struck up a friendly conversation with another woman who was looking at them also. In the course of our conversation I must have said something like, "I ordinarily wouldn't buy a new pair of hiking boots, but since these are on sale, I can't resist." She said something like, "I really like them too, but I'm just trying to get back on my feet. I lost my job and filed bankruptcy six years ago because of Obama." I didn't say one more word, just turned around and walked away.

I wouldn't waste my breath even trying to argue with that one. Why she felt the need to interject that into the conversation is beyond me.

5. Sounds like the only interaction that you should have with that neighbor is a courteous wave.

The dude sounds wound-up and at some point he is going to blow. He likely has guns in his home and maybe vehicle.

8. It's not worth owing him money (fine) or having him see you do community service (or get arrested).
