I will not forgive or forget


Today's assignment is to read a great article which addresses the flood of recent, "So what do regretful Trump voters think about how he's doing" stories in the media.

Why I'll Never Sympathize with Regretful Trump Voters


Here's a taste.
In Kansas, you could have declined to re-elect Sam Brownback, who'd already turned your state into a dismal Randian basket case. In Wisconsin, you had three chances to turn out Scott Walker, and several chances to get the state legislature out of his clammy hands. And, now that the teeth of this new administration are becoming plain to see, it's a good time to remind all of you that you didn't have to hand the entire federal government over to Republican vandalism, and the presidency over to an abject loon on whom Russia may well hold the paper.
You all had the same choices we all had. You saddled the rest of us with misrule and disaster. Own it. I empathize, but I will not sympathize.
It's a good article. Go read it.

I kept hearing that "Trump supporters wanted change!"

If they really wanted "change," maybe they shouldn't have returned 99% of Congress to the people who have been in control all these years.

In most of those conversations, "change" seemed to be a transparent euphemism to minimize the role of racism and the increasingly clear fact that Trump and his supporters are a bunch of whiny, cowardly, gullible, immature, racist bullies.
