I attended a very conservative oriented business meeting this morning.

Talk turned to politics and the overriding theme was Trumps instability and what it has and will do to the financial markets. We had a representative from a large investment firm speaking. He talked about the fear of Trump in his industry. They fear instability. They said Clinton is more of the same which is viewed fondly.

I have not fact checked this and don't know how true it is.

He stated markets almost immediately dropped %1.5 after Comey sent his letter. He stated in his industry that alone is frightening.

He also stated our election is directly influencing Mexico's currency. Good news for Trump or bad news for Clinton alone is shifting the value.

I left with a very positive attitude. This was a conservative environment and there was no positive talk about Trump. It was all negative about him from the members.

How You Can Fight Donald Trump Right Now

One day, Americans who were too young to have followed the 2016 campaign will look back and try to make sense of it. They will want to know how such a dangerous person could have gotten so close to the presidency — a man who spoke of abandoning our allies, admiring foreign despots, weakening constitutional rights, and serially molesting women.

Those future adults may also pose a more personal question to their elders:

Mommy and Daddy, what did you do in response to Donald Trump?

It will be a fair question. The reality is, Trump could still win. It is unlikely, yes, but the gift he received from a surprisingly bumbling F.B.I. shows that campaigns aren’t over until they’re over.

With seven days left, it is not too late for anyone alarmed by Trump to get involved. As it happens, Trump himself has pointed toward the best way to do so. Again and again, he has attempted to undermine democratic legitimacy, be it inviting foreign interference or flirting with voter intimidation.

Walking down my street each morning to find my Clinton yard sign has become a ritual.

Just about every morning for a couple of weeks I have had to walk down my street to find my Clinton yard sign. Most the time it is just one house down, sometimes further. I'm assuming it is normally the same person as I usually find it in the same spot.

Any ideas on how to protect it? Non-painful methods. I don't hurt members of my community. Not even with a bit of hot sauce. I actually kind of feel bad for them.

I have been planning on getting some hi-def exterior cameras. We have had a rash of robberies in my neighborhood. I hadn't planned on it for about another month but might have to do it earlier.

I also want to put a sticker on my car but am worried what will happen. If said individual will walk on my property to take my sign I wouldn't put it past them to throw it at my car. Ohh well. Going to the local Clinton office today for an additional sign and car sticker. Haven't decided if the sticker will go on my car yet.
