The week that will decide the election – POLITICO

Five things to watch in a week that will likely pick a president.

I found this article interesting. The polls about likability, how can you vote for someone who you do not like? If you do not like their character, what does that say about your candidate? How can you vote for someone you do not respect?

Being the geek that I proudly am, I love looking at polls. I know polls will lean one way depending on what website is reporting. I still find them interesting. I read both Republican and Democrat-leaning websites. I think you have to. No, I know you have to. It would be like reading a book with only even or odd number pages. You would not get the whole story. And we tend to fill in information that may be right, but could be so wrong. This election we need to be informed, we need to do our homework. I still am an undecided voter.

I still am an undecided voter. I lean Republican but am more Conservative. I can not get myself to vote for Trump. And, hell no, for Hillary. Gary Johnson? He is running as Libertarian. He is the farthest from Libertarian. I think something is wrong with his whole thinking process. I was going to write in Cruz. I do not think I can write in Cruz. I was so taking aback last week. I really feel like a fool. He was the first candidate I donated time and money. It all feels fake.

I said this election I was not going to vote for the lesser of two evils. It is a shame we do vote that way. It is screwed up. Any of the sixteen Republicans that ran would have been better than Trump! We made Trump happen. I am at blame just as much. People are so angry with Washington. We are sick of getting screwed over, watching our freedom being taking away, and P.C. is so over the top. I am not going to change who I am to conform to what others want me to be.

I had breast cancer, and I fought hard. When I was eight, I became very sick. I have an autoimmune disease all so. I take medications to keep me alive but are hard on my body. I am two years cancer free! My point, I look at life a lot different. I love each and every day. My cancer coming back is high in the next five years. I look at the big picture more. I cannot vote the lesser of two evils. So, someone tell me, how do I vote?

The Week

Wow! What a week!

I do not know why Hillary or Trump think they won the debate? They lost, more importantly, we lost. How can they not be embarrassed? Let’s move on already.

I do not know why, but I am fascinated with Hannity.

Fox news was the go to for Republicans and Conservatives. I liked it as, home. I find myself turning the channel a lot more. There is more than Trump.

Really?

Fox Gave Trump Credit For Simply Appearing At The Debate

Fox’s Bret Baier: “I Do Think [Trump] Gets Credit For Just Being On The Stage.” Fox host Bret Baier said Trump “gets credit for just being on the stage” because “It legitimized him” as a presidential candidate. Baier, who was appearing on the September 27 edition of Fox News’ Outnumbered, added that Trump “answers every question,” unlike “the traditional politician where you answer a little bit and you pivot.” [Fox News,Outnumbered, 9/27/16]

What do you do with this information?

Wisconsin does get tornados, flooding, winter storms, we do have our share of life threating weather. I could not begin to imagine the fear of the ground moving under the feet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thursdays Stories I Liked

https://thinkprogress.org/how-sean-hannity-managed-to-interview-trump-41-times-and-never-once-made-news-3a762a1fe170#.jq74eldv

Hannity has managed to interview Trump for hours without ever coming even close to making news.

I think I am starting to feel bad for Hannity. Why does he need Trump to stroke his ego? Maybe Sean is lonely and in need of a friend. What else can explain his actions? The article was written in April.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2016/09/28/hannity-slams-overpaid-media-elites-then-journalists-respond-noting-his-29m-salary-and-private-jet/

“My overpaid friends in the media, well, they have their chauffeur-driven limousines, they like their fine steakhouses and expensive-wine lifestyles,” Hannity said in the eight-minute monologue. “None of them are feeling this, the people you’re watching on TV, and therein lies the contempt.”

The media fired back.

This is what I do not understand. The voters Trump needs, the audience Sean needs, are the folks who are fighting against the arrogance these two project.

It is making my head hurt again!

So sad! Hey, we are unifying.

Thursdays Turdays

The title, I know. It has been one of those weeks. Fighting an at times life ending illness and trying to keep up writing is one of those things I have yet to master. But, I will get there. If for nothing else, I am head strong and can be stubborn and not dead yet.

I boycotted writing about the debate on my blog. I did write in my news journal. Oh, why would you do that? It made my brain hurt! We are being laughed at by other countries. I do not know if other countries are laughing at us, but come on. It is embarrassing. Wait, Sean Hannity, he is embarrassing. Is that not the biggest bro crush? Talk about the teachers pet! I wonder if Bill O’Reilly and others (I like O’Reilly I am using him as an example.) are all jealous at the attention Trump gives Sean? I still do not get it.

Gary Johnson. Nothing more needs to be said.

How about the weather. The leaves are just starting to change. The oak trees are getting that little paint brush of red and orange. I love autumn; I wish it were not such a short season. Autumn is a busy time of year for us. Wood needs to be cut and piled, winterizing the house and storage. Putting all summer toys away and getting the winter toys ready. The dogs are blowing their summer coats and a darker heavier fur taking its place. Having three large German Shepherds trust me, it is a ton of fur!

What is up with one sided hot flashes? Since I started hormone therapy, I get hot flashes on the right side of my body. It is literally right down the middle of my body. I can not be the only one, let me know if you want to join this strange club.
