"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Your stocks and mine have been doing rather well of late because the economy is recovering, and because most of the recovery is going to the supply side. People who don't own stocks and who work from payday to payday aren't doing so well, but those of us who own a piece of America via the stock exchange, even a small piece, have been doing OK.
After the election, when we (most likely, IMO) will have a Republican POTUS, that person won't run the economy either. The stock market will still have its ups and downs, of course, but will likely still perform well enough that the money we have in the market will be better than what we've put into passbook savings. Gold may or may not do well. I'm predicting that it will not, as it has been advertised into an artificial high and is likely to adjust downward pretty soon.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
It means a lot to me to find solace with Veterans like you since my Dad was 22 years Air Force and 8 more Civil Service.
I still can't wrap my head around any reasoning as to why these things keep happening.
In 1976, when I experienced my first loss as a first-year Teacher, I made a conscious decision to NEVER write down the names or how these losses happened.
You can imagine how I must revisit this decision time and again, as with this past week.
Please know how bad I feel due to my personality belligerence in defending Democrats.
I feel the attacks were over-the-top and this prevented me from showing who I am on the issues.
I take things too personal and haven't been able to separate electioneering with solving issues.
I was an asshole on DP on Tuesday night but I am better now and wanting to move forward with you and others.
One of my best friends on DP right now is Republican Beaudreax.
He worked in Illinois after our tornadoes an hour from where I live.
He very much helped our communities get back on their feet--this is why I believe there is so much overlap between Real life and internet life.
Before I head out for the day, including stops at the school, I'm heartened by the jobs numbers today.
I just don't get why these numbers continue to get shot down by conservatives but must start reading what you guys say when done tactfully.
I also must stop taking things personally and realize with some it is just politics and move on.
Once again, thank you and know your positivity drives with me today .

God bless you and all the students in the school along with the families of those lost and severely injured
This was an amazingly moving post from you to me.
Real life people like you on DP continue to help me build my inner strength--
an inner strength I will need in the coming months to help the kids positively through external strength.
I can tell you of similar situations as your ministry in the future where real life people have responded as you have due to real life losses.
You are a great man for doing this.
How difficult it must have been for you to share your own loss and you have my deepest sympathies--you are now a part of my soul.I lost my wife last year and have been struggling to overcome that loss for almost two years now.
There is a reason for these tragedies to occur and one of these days we will find out that reason.
Until that day believe me those of us who have lost someone close understand your grief although your grief is indeed personal as is mine.
I can't even imagine your loss--though you would counsel me that I could dig deep down to find the strength to live on with courage in memory.
My very best friend at our school went through your situation several years ago.
He carries himself in a way every day that inspires me to truly love him as a man's man.
I'm fortunate to have known all along how blessed I've been to know my subjects and have the ability to get them across.God bless you and all the students in the school along with the families of those lost and severely injured
Never forgetting that I'm teaching students, not just a subject--preparing them for their next step in life.
Never wasting my gifts given to me by my Creator.

After great pain, a formal feeling comes
By Emily Dickinson
After great pain, a formal feeling comes –
The Nerves sit ceremonious, like Tombs –
The stiff Heart questions ‘was it He, that bore,’
And ‘Yesterday, or Centuries before’?
The Feet, mechanical, go round –
A Wooden way
Of Ground, or Air, or Ought –
A Quartz contentment, like a stone –
This is the Hour of Lead –
Remembered, if outlived,
As Freezing persons, recollect the Snow –
First – Chill – then Stupor – then the letting go –
"It's always reassuring to find you've made the right enemies." -- William J. Donovan
