78. Not safe for Trumpers

annoying political posts

It is 78 days until the next U.S. congressional midterm election.

Oops, looks like the time finally arrived to repeat the message I put out when I started this countdown to the election.

This comes from the series opener on July 29, “Be heard”:

“Advisory: This series is written for liberals, others who have not voted, and those who simply are undecided. Please understand I am not writing to anyone who remains a Trump supporter or who backs his Republican Party enablers. Such folks need a spiritual reawakening I’m unlikely to give them. I will not be entering arguments. In fact, I won’t even allow such comments on this blog. Here on FB or Twitter, I will delete them and, if necessary, unfriend or block the person. In all honesty, you might want to not follow me the next few months if you’re a diehard Trump fan; I’d understand.”

To some surprise, my friend count in Facebook has only dropped one, my blog followers has grown by two and Twitter followers has increased by 45. Either my old, die-hard conservative friends are ignoring me to maintain a sentimental connection or maybe reconsidering their positions.

Then, for some reason, Sunday’s post about a possible Trump impeachment being an indicator of the resiliency of the U.S. Constitution caused the first real backlash. It was nothing strong or mean, just testing my policy of not allowing them to play their games.

However, I never assume everyone has read all my posts, so this is a repeat advisory.

If you remain a Trump supporter after his embarrassing first 19 months in office, please, please, please ignore my posts from now until we fix this problem. I do not want to get you overly-agitated and possibly cause high blood pressure. With the way the Republicans are attempting to dismantle health care, you won’t be able to afford treatment.

Now, back to the reason for this series.

If you’re not registered to vote, it’s time to get into the game. We need everybody who cares about human beings to register and then vote Democrat this fall. Too many people sitting on the sidelines is what got us into this mess.

Register. Tell a friend. Vote.

PS – I have nothing against you posting photos of your meals.
