I’m not one to post on politics. I am not as informed as I should be for reasons I’ll keep to myself. I do agree with Linda, that people need to speak up. I just had a conversation with a childhood friend yesterday about this topic. We weren’t sure what the answer was- to say nothing and hope that by ignoring him we wouldn’t give his word any merit, or bombard our inner circles with his blatant hatred, ignorance, and intolerance in hopes that people would see him for what he is.

    1. Every interaction I’ve seen he’s been belligerent, disrespectful, intolerant and down right nasty to people. I don’t know his story but I can only imagine he was born into money because he is the farthest thing from success I can fathom. I’ll have to check that post out.


Don't be shy, I'll reply ;)
