The day Agent Orange decided to run for President

was in my opinion the worst decision and the worst day of his life. I suspect if he could take that damn elevator and "Melanie" back upward and pretend the elevator stalled, he would.
I think he and all of his nepotistic cabal know this and rue his narcissistic decision by now.

Everything related to his delusions of grandeur is like a rancid worm squishing in the dust on the ground at our feet, and any financial gain they have grifted and stolen is evaporating as the charlatan is exposed. A would be despot in a world that will ultimately not put up with him and has his fucking number already while gagging with a spoon.

Just like the ineptitude of Bush Junior has opened the possibility for the election of Barack Obama, Agent Orange has widened the path of our evolution for further advancement. Yes, he has that base of deplorables who hard headedly seem to not be able to understand that they made a huge mistake. But they are not growing. We are, by pulling in those who have not cared about voting before. I'm comfortable knowing Trump is a blip in our progress, and ultimately one that may have sped us up by a huge leap as we come forth and extend the blue wave of the mid terms.

I do believe a fast tracked investigation ending in impeachment is the best thing for our country, a few months of Mayonnaise Pence cannot and will not be a daily pre-occupation or a rapid acceleration of descent. He is way too dull, lacking the spark of insanity, plus is weak mentally.

I have my favorites in the lineup of our candidates. We are blessed though to have people of substance and intellect running, who know what is needed immediately. And the ones who don't (not my favorites) won't be surviving the nominating process.
So I say, let's persevere.

Glorious Spring, a short walk just now

I turned left, and walked down the 5 houses to the end of my block.
The last, crazy one, is me returning to my own yard.

A simple Walk on Easter Sunday Morning

Started in the Cemetery, wandered over to a wonderfully landscaped backyard and then moved on toward home and a family dinner.
