I recall being instructed by my Dad as to several "rules to live by" beginning back when

my age would still be in single digits for several years. One that has come to mind often these past few years is " A wise man can change his mind; a fool never will."

I think that there are many voters, perhaps millions, who, in that time they spend staring up at a dark bedroom ceiling and very privately considering "How am I doing?", writhe in disgust as they confront themselves with "Trump? What was I thinking?" But,---they consider themselves "locked in".

They can see no way to get off the "Trump Train" that they boarded so gleefully when it seemed that "everyone" was getting on board. They realize belatedly that all those terrible things the "liberal socialists" said about Donald Trump were---and ARE---true. He is anarrogant,self-centered lying sexual predator who is also a spiteful racist, bigot and misogynist. And, it has finally sunk in that he has never cared about anyone but himself. But, admit that they were terribly wrong, vote for a Democrat or---CRITICIZE their tattered hero?

Huh-uh! No way! That ain't happenin'!

If he was in a really generous mood, Dad would have "only" called them fools.

1. Reccing for the "wise man" motto.

Definitely words to live by.

3. One that always makes me smile: "Like your mother told you---turn the other cheek to

avoid a fight, but you only have four cheeks on your body!"

My Dad:

People say they donít have time but we each have all the time there is.

You can sell your time or you can sell your skills
