The people have spoken, and so it is done. Thank God.
This election — 16 grueling months of back biting, race baiting, name calling, dirt digging (and that was just the press) — is over.
I am kicking up my heels, sipping a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon and celebrating up a storm. No longer will I have to listen to the minutia that talking faces on CNN, FOX, CNBC, etc have been spewing minute by minute.
Television programming will be politically free (for a time).
And finally, the tabloids will be silenced (also for a time).
Now the media can focus on news, real news, and leave opinions, however thinly veiled, out of the picture — I’m looking at you, New York Post and New York Daily News.
I wish I could predict how well Donald Trump will do in leading this country for the next four years, but prognostication is not one of my strong suits, so I guess I will have to pray, leave it up to the universe, and hopw we all — the “depolorables” and the “haters” included — live through it.
Good, bad, or indifferent, I am at least sure of the following:
• This election was one for the books.
• The sun will come out tomorrow.
• Taxes will not be going down any time soon — a country can’t owe what we owe without raising them somewhere.
• You cannot trust the media, the FBI, or anyone else to be non-partisan.
• The “One Percent” will still have their 100-percent loopholes.
Not for Nuthin™ but Nobel Laureate Bob Dylan wasn’t kidding when he sang “the times they are a changin’.”
Hey there is always 2020 to look forward to. Good luck, America.
