it's a sad state....

think of it this way...

trump being trump is trump making obnoxious/offensive statements

hillary being hillary is hillary(and bill as we were told they were co-presidents the first time around and there is no reason that should change) plundering government and commiting crimes

regarding obnoxious/offensive statements...in many cases we're told we're just supposed to live with it...Obama was trying to link Trump with the KKK in front of black audiences yesterday...that's both obnoxious and offensive and on tape....Jay Z dropped about a million n-bombs at a hillary rally yesterday....that's also pretty offensive

if you listened to a few of the songs my oldest daughter listens to on a regular basis..trump might sound pretty hip

however...we have a highly politicized 'justice department' running interference for the clinton crime syndicate....that will not change if she is elected, in fact, knowing the clintons...they'll be emboldened....the corruption of the government cannot continue if we are to function as a nation but certainly will if she wins

I guess I'm in a similar situation at 63 that my parents or their parents were in at a later stage of life. It's not just this election, why I watch the news is beyond me, because every day its one more "I can't fing believe it" news story.

Then it's the behavior of the youth I see coming off white horse beach where we have the pleasure of living close enough, so all the public parking is up and down our street. We do a clean up every so often, because we just can't stand looking at the baby diapers, the needles, cases of empty beer, beat up coolers and I'm lucky enough on occasion to stop them in the act of throwing empties in my neighbors yards (always a fun time). Work ethic, respectful behavior, honesty, seem to be going by the board and are being replaced with youth that feel entitled and anything but respectful.

Shootings, road rage, terrorist attacks, middle east, north Korea, weather extremes, the list of depressing news stories is endless. We had a 45 year old high school teacher buy a cottage across the street from us and she has never had a TV and has no interest in watching the news and after watching the nightly news; I think maybe she is on to something.

Love my time on the golf course or on the water, because you need it now a days to purge out all the negative crap you are exposed to day in and day out.
