Sugarfoot #6

Sugarfoot #6

She wrapped the small furred body in a blanket
as if to keep it warm, though it was cold
already. Clenching jaw against grief,
she laid it in the earth where he had dug
a grave (so small) beside the greening poppies.
Together then, in silence, they returned
the disturbed earth, each gripping back the tears
(as best they could) to keep from further wounding
the other.  Over it he placed a rock.
"In case the dogs should dig....," he turned away.

"I'd better go to work," her face was stiff,
"The day's half over. They'll be needing me."
"Me too." They went each to their separate ways.
She spent the day. . .the week . . .the month . . .not crying.

Well, my favorite politician I love to loath picked a fight with another handicapped individual saying me would like to punch the little guy in the face. Then making fun of a couple who lost their child overseas in war but saying they he also has sacrificed a lot by creating many jobs  . . what??  That is the same as losing a child?

OH - then he accidentally gave out a State secret when he mentioned why we are being charged by Saudi Arabia for having a military base.  umm . . . . .that was something you learned in your first intelligence meetings and were not suppose to mention.   GOOD LORD!!!

Trump is the most disgusting vile human being I have ever seen.

As of this morning Clinton has a 62% chance of winning the election according to the polls-plus model on Nate Silvers 538 site.  This is up about 14 points from last week. What I found interesting was the comments from conservatives

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld:
if repubs had championed their principles with specifics rather than embrace autocracy - they wouldn't have yielded this turf to dems.

Rich Galen, press secretary for Dick Cheney:
How can it be that I am standing at my kitchen counter sobbing because of the messages being driven at the DNC? Where has the GOP gone?

Conservative Iowa radio host Steve Deace:
So most of conservative media and the GOP spent the week rooting for Russia, and now the Democrats get to rally around the flag.
Dreadful.

National Review editor Jonah Goldberg:
Why this convention is better: It's about loving America. GOP convention was about loving Trump. If you didn't love Trump, it offered nada.

Meanwhile in Illinois - a state who's government is more messed up then Wisconsin's

Friday Governor Bruce Rauner has signed SB 2228, making Illinois the 21st state to decriminalize marijuana.  Possession of up to 10 grams of marijuana everywhere in Illinois is now not somethign that will go on your record and you might only get a small ticket.

Have a great day!!
