About Me

I'm in my 50's. I served 6 years in the Air Force. I've worked in the following fields: Military; Civilian Meteorologist; Dial-Up Internet Service Provider; Equipment Rental; Information Services; Currently working as an electrician. Married for just over 30 years. Was a registered Republican for the first election I was involved in and voted for Reagan. I changed my affiliation afterward and have voted Democrat ever since. I am a Bernie Sanders supporter. Any person that promotes a platform that supports the greatest portion of the American people is a person that I can support. Why would anyone have a problem with that?

I've received my absentee ballot...

And I've already voted for Hillary, and have voted a straight Democratic ticket...

I was a Bernie supporter. Not a "Bernie Bro" by any stretch, but a Bernie supporter.

I really have to say this, and I'm sure I'm going to get some grief (a lot of grief I'm sure)...

Have you noticed that Since Bernie is no longer relevant to the election that the entire election has turned negative? Bernie avoided all things negative and focused primarily on the issues. I've had to stop watching the coverage... it makes me sick to my stomach.

We're so screwed as a country if we can't focus on the issues. We'd rather be angry and scared all of the time than focus on the task at hand. We're a reality television, celebrity focused, my team is better than your team kind of people in this country... I'm speaking about the collective. Not about any individuals... I would rather hear a good debate about a single issue. One that lasted 4 hours about public education than hear one minute about Trump grabbing genitals or Clinton's emails.

Just an observation.

Just an observation

This evening when I navigated to the DU homepage. I noticed something that I have been noticing recently. The sheer number of posts with subject lines with the word "Trump" in them far outweighed the number of subject lines with the word "Clinton" in them. I do think I need to add that Obama at least got a solid 1.

I counted 38 Trump to only 8 Clinton.

And, the really sad thing is that issues don't seem to be subject matter. It seems that nearly every post related to the election is negative in context and not at all issue related.

Again. Just an observation.
