How tweet it is

Tweeted during Trump's speech accepting the nomination. First I laughed, then I got depressed.



(N.B.: It was actually Kennedy who used the "city on a hill" quote, taking it from the writings of early Massachusetts Bay Colonist John Winthrop, 1630. Reagan's slogan was "Morning in America." Nevertheless, damn funny.)

More good tweets ===>

As a comedian it's tons of material. As a concerned observer still scares me a bit where US politics and the world have gone. Guess best to laugh for now and hope for the best. And if all else fails we got PLENTY of room up here in Canada, eh for newcomers! WE GOT COOKIES AND SEXY COSPLAY FOR EVERYONE AND HUGS! Ta!

My husband has convinced me to avoid the political news. I know who I'm voting for, and reading what The Buffoon has to say makes me so sad and angry that I can't function. So I'm voting what I need to vote and sending money where it needs to be sent, but I'm not listening to crap that will only debilitate me.

I feel sorta bad about this -- it seems as if I should be stronger -- but a responsible exercise of the franchise doesn't require listening to everything that's said by the person one already has reason enough to vote against.

I have trouble believing that enough people took Trump seriously for him to get the Republican nomination; it's so shocking and so depressing that our country has reached that state. But maybe it'll be a wake-up call. Maybe some good will come of this.

Or maybe I'll need to spend even more of my mental energy living in the 23rd century. :-)

Very true, and sound advice from you spouse. The main reason I'm hanging in there is in the desperate hope I can rescue my dad from the colossal error of voting for The Man With The Orange Souffle Hairdo. *sigh*
