I ain't no Democrat. I ain't no Republican. I hate parties in the first place. Who told you your vote counted anyway? Ever heard of the electoral college?

It plays out the way the rich and powerful make it play out. We ain't them unless one of you is holding out on us. Chess pieces, get ready to move where you're told!
We had a minor natural disaster here yesterday. An outer spigot attached to the house broke and was flooding the concrete block foundation wall, which means, water traveled through the block and came out in the basement wherever it could. So, we have major cleanup to do down there. Pray for Tom's back and my ankle to hold out to move huge, full bookshelves (it's about as hard to remove all those thousands of books as it is to move the shelves with books on them, but can't since they are stacked on top as well).
