It's going to take a lot of this by Michelle, President Obama and ALL Democrats all across this country to ensure re-election of President Obama and to empress upon people that if they don't vote in Congressional, Governor's, State and Local elections, republicans are going to continue to be in positions to Block every Idea or Policy of the President and his administration and the true desires of democrat voters.

I came from radio and newspapers and can go back to radio and reading those little strips called newspapers, if push comes to shove. Trump's going to have all or us quacking like ducklings after awhile. We'll be throwing out our right arms toward him like his step-brother experienced. Hope we don't end up being roasted. I'm not oven correct. America's on it's way to becoming something or another. Only God or Satan knows what.

But! We gave a damn. Protect our community as much as we could; raise our children the best way in our limited ability and try to teach 'em as much as we knew how. But today?

Exerpt: President Obama's Commencement Speech: University Of Michigan,May 1, 2010. "The problem is that this kind of vilification and over-the-top rhetoric closes the door to the possibility of compromise. It undermines democratic deliberation. It prevents learning - since after all, why should we listen to a "fascist" or "socialist" or "right wing nut?" It makes it nearly impossible for people who have legitimate but bridgeable differences to sit down at the same table and hash things out.
