11 Bravo

For my 21st anniversary (plus one day) at DU, I would like to say:

Fuck the polls, fuck the NYT, and most especially, fuck Donald Trump!
I have fought and bled for this country, and I refuse to believe that the American people are going to give a pussy-grabbing, serially adulterous, sexually assaulting, pathologically lying, felonious orange shitweasel a second chance to destroy our democracy.
But let's not leave it to chance, shall we?
At the risk of sounding overly dramatic, I truly believe that this will be the most critical election of my 72 years on this planet. Damned near everything we hold dear is on the table, and while it's not my place to say that maybe this ain't the time for a protest vote (looking at YOU Stein, Manchin, Kennedy, West), I'll say it anyway. Vote DEMOCRATIC ... like it says in the name of this place that I've enjoyed for so long.

You are not sounding overly dramatic, you are sounding like you know what the fuck you are talking about.

Fuck the protest vote.

Vote for every (D) on your ballot.

Better than I deserve. I hope you’re fine and dandy and ready to chow down in a couple of days. I can remember many Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinners in the galley. Good Memories.
