We are known to be very liberal and forward thinking. It's a young city and protests are the norm. Not like what is going on now. Thugs have invaded our streets causing so much physical damage. Hiding in their hoodies and masks. I just heard on the news that these criminals were recruited via Craigslist!! For them it has NOTHING to do with politics, only destruction.
It's irritating enough, to me, that we are having so many protests after an election. Maybe it would have been the same if the other candidate won. The crying and weeping and missing work and school and needing counseling? Beyond my realm of thinking.
Don't like the electoral college? We've got four years to change the constitution to abolish it. Don't like his rude and crude blustery old fool comments about race, religion and gender? Hit the streets and hug your friends who are immigrants and Muslims and gay and transgender. Just because he won, doesn't mean I am going to hate. Prepare for the worst and expect the best.
The angry threats on Facebook gave me impetus to clean out the "friends" list and unfollow the negative nellies. Very sad, but maybe that is a lesson for me.
All Americans have learned another big lesson already.
P.S. I closed the FB account altogether. I spent WAY too much time on there since Mr. Ralph left. No distractions from my little boys!
