Hmmm, what’s more depressing, The Sabres or the election?
Number two son is home for October break and we went to the home opener last night against Montreal. Besieged by injuries to start the season, the Sabres were abysmal. They looked slow, out of position, and outclassed. So on that note, back to the election.
Sniffles is doing a few things that I find to be particularly damaging to the country. First off, he is constantly blaming the media for his problems. That’s just weak. It doesn’t work for me at all. If you don’t want the media to report on this or that, don’t do and say this or that. Was the media not supposed to report on and run with this “P word” tape or every other disgusting thing that has come out of his mouth? What’s troubling to me about it is that so many of his followers don’t trust the media at all now. Not that we should take everything we read or see in the media as absolute truth but there has to be a basic trust there.
What’s even worse is that Trump has been suggesting that if he loses, it will be because the election is rigged. This is dangerous talk. You may have seen the woman speak up at a Pence rally the other day, saying that there will be a “revolution” if Hillary wins. Pence couldn’t shut her down fast enough. I understand that tempers will run hot as the election draws closer but we really do need to come together after the election, regardless of who wins.
Right now, it looks like Hillary will win big. If that ends up being the case, Trump supporters should take a good look at why that is. It sure won’t be because of the media. In spite of being remarkably, dangerously unqualified for the position, it won’t be because of that either. Hillary isn’t exactly Ms. Popularity(this just in). She has more than her share of controversies(some real, some not so much). But she hasn’t been playing footsy with the “alt-right”. She isn’t on tape making lewd comments about sexual assault. She hasn’t made fun of handicapped people or insulted gold star parents. She hasn’t called Mexicans rapists. On and on and on. My feeling is that if Sniffles had stuck to the issues and if he wasn’t such a vile, repugnant, piece of shit, he probably would have made this a very close election. Take a long, hard look, Trump supporter. If you’re truly honest with yourself, you’ll see I’m right.
None of this is to say that Hillary will be a great president. We’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, the Republicans should do some serious soul searching. We need at least two strong political parties to go forward effectively. Right now, they’re a tire fire.
