6. Not in the least.

I have checked that out. I thought maybe he was a "closet" racist. Not at all.

My only clue has been is that he was very, very poor as a child (only child) -- father deserted the family -- and his mother was not "adequate" and he was raised in a group home until mom got her act together. I am not sure, but I don't think his parents were married, but his father was much older than his mother and he had two older half-sisters. Made amends with Mom before she passed. Never had a relationship with his father, ever.

He made is successful. Has his own business and has made a nice living for himself and his family. Wife was a RW nut job from what I hear him say about her -- she passed from cancer 4 years ago this coming January. Married nearly 50 years.

He just amazed me yesterday listening to him at Thanksgiving dinner. The shit that came out of his mouth -- and not in an ugly, nasty manner -- but unbelievable to the point that I was shocked.

BTW: He's 75 years old and is hooked on Fox News.

I don't think I can make him see reality, but I am trying to get a clue why someone who is educated, intelligent and cares about people and animals would worship that piece of shit in the WH.
