I wish I could remember where I read it but this morning saw where someone asked "Who won the debate?" and the answer was "Hillary!". Sometimes I wonder if Trump isn't really a Democratic 'plant' in all of this. If Bill Clinton advised him to "Go for it" and run I think he KNEW exactly how it would go and that only makes it better for Hillary, in the end. Somehow I believe there's "a method to this madness".

I'm not much impressed with any of the Republican candidates at this point and it's still a long way to the general election. Personally, if it weren't for Trump's shenanigans I probably wouldn't be paying any attention at all. It's just MUCH to early and by the time we get around to voting I have no doubt we'll all be pretty sick of the whole process.

But Trump cannot open his mouth without name calling. DT is rude without respect for anyone. Have you ever heard a president speak about and to others this way? Just because he has all that money means nothing. His business experience might help us but the rest of his personality negates any of that. Political correctness has nothing to do with it. He is just a jerk of the first order. JHMO
I agree 100% with your assessment of Trump. However, I am still confused as to what you meant when you said that you have changed your mind about him. What changed for you as a result of his "performance" at the debate.

At least, on CD the name callers get "pinched" by the Mod; Trump can just go on and on and no one silences him. Disgusting.

Just came back from feeding 21 horses raw carrots with two 2-year-olds. This is the third day of our staycation with them. After nap right now they go back to their rightful caretakers. I can see how the "takes a village" saying came about. I am beat...but what a great time. Interesting to observe, from a more distant (non-parent) point of view, how language and particular sayings develop in humans and how much gets learned by copying even not knowing what the phrases mean. Also where and how happiness, joy, fear, and anger develop at such a young age. It's sad that all this will be forgotten.

Awww, negirl, how wonderful. Treasure that memory. I doubt the wondrous observation and appreciation of young minds developing will be forgotten.

I wonder if you started a journal with your observations & love, they would appreciate it when they're older. I so often wished I had something in writing from my grandparents.

Maybe after I recover, lol. They just left for home after 3 days here and I'm flat out on the couch. I need an IV of something....
