    Yeah, statins, the ubiquitous daily aspirin and of course, blood pressure med.

    In my side of the McLaughlin you did good just making it to 73. My mother, who was NOT a McLaughlin except by marriage, died at age 73.

    So we are not long-lived though my Cardio guy -who looks like Olympian Ryan Lochte-tells me he’s going to keep me alive longer than the rest of the McLaughlins. At least I’d like to live longer than Hillary.

    Anyway, with the death last week of my Aunt Agnes McLaughlin (Aunt Agnes was GREEK of all things) she is the last of my father’s generation.

    How did they do?

    Well they issues with whiskey.

    Heh.

    And hearts. They all had bad hearts and circulation.

    So I continue on the tradition.

    Ah....you could be right.

    Cuban has to look to be on Hillary’s side because of his NBA affiliation. Well that makes some sense. Because for a Shark to be rooting for socialist Hillary makes no sense.

    BTW, cousin Mike, all this blood crap is a McLaughlin thing. Sister had massive, MASSIVE stroke at age 64, father died at 65 having heart attacks since age 39 and every artery in his body roto-routed. Niece just had heart valve operation, age 55.

    Watch your heart and your blood flow is my warning.

    I am a big fan of Shark Tank and always liked Mark Cuban.

    Well I wouldn’t say like, but I didn’t dislike him.

    And I know Cuban is a Hillary fan so right there I think he’s stupid. You’d think Sharks would be smarter than that.

    But Trump has out-performed Cuban in every way but Sunday, to include economic achievements and TV influence.

    Why is Trump all bent about Cuban? He’s nowhere near Trump in stature.

    Funny you should bring that up because, indeed, my own doctor told me I didn’t have to go on Coumadin, that there were other products.

    But they are expensive, as doc tells me.

    For now I am with the Warfarin because first I am already going into the donut hole at year end but right now I am more content having this closely supervised that my gums and eyes do not bleed all over the place.

    Next year I’ll probably switch over.

    But as to why on earth Hillary is still taking Coumadin, goodness, you got to wonder why don’t you?

    I’ll take a guess. Her being on Coumadin gives her an excuse for frequent testing, testing that might be more for Parkinson symptoms than Coumadin readings.

    Cause she doesn’t need to go through all that stuff with Coumadin.

    Heh.

    You may smile about the kale but they grilled me for several minutes about green stuff I eat.

    And having always been, ahem, “curvy”, I cultivated a like for such as broccoli, asparagus and Brussels sprouts, all of which are almost as bad as kale.

    Now they assure me that I CAN eat this stuff but eating too much of it will offset the effects of the Coumadin, which is busy removing vitamin K from the body.

    So go figger this weird bit of irony.

    Anyway, is everybody ready for the debate tomorrow night? Be watching for roaming eyeballs, cough and bleeding gums on Hillary.

    So good morning yon ladies and gems, good morning AB and, as always, thank you so very much for doing this thread every week so reliably. Thank you Bray for weekly wisdom and thank you yon commenters for fleshing it all out for me.

    Today we briefly go over the Diane Feinstein saga, a little kitten update but most important, and keeping with topic, Hillary and the Coumadin.

    First, Diane Feinstein’s well went dry. Goodness it was only a 25 foot deep thing, Billy and I had a shallow well like that and it went dry too. People should not have 25 foot wells filled with sand and crickets.

    I was suspicious that the well was dry but Feinstein, she wants things to be the way that SHE wants them, including my suspicion that her live in mate is addicted to painkillers but alas, another story, another day.

    At any rate, Diane Feinstein has been spending a lot of time at my house, washing clothes and her hair as for now going on two weeks she’s had no water. NO WATER!!!

    Now I don’t mind, it’s been really great, she comes over, we play with the animals. Diane Feinstein took care of my pets while I was in the hospital, more on this later. We do watch Fox when she’s over and Diane Feinstein is learning a thing or two about politics although she’s still a registered Democrat…..boo.

    I’ll ask how the water situation’s going and she shrugs, tells me Joe-her friend-worked on but he’s taking a nap now.

    Man if I had no water BILLY WOULD NOT BE NAPPING UNTIL WE HAD SOME!!!!

    Finally after a couple of weeks of this, and now that it does appear that the well did, indeed, go dry, I finally told her, gently, that she needs to WAKE JOE UP!

    Anyway, I do enjoy her company but I know she’s miserable with no water, who wouldn’t be?

    As for the kitten, God bless. All my friends tell me I needed a new love in my life but I was thinking more like a HUMAN MALE for God’s sake, not a kitten! I already got two cats and two dogs, why I need another kitten?

    And yet me and that kitten have bonded like you would not believe. She’s always by my side, goodness her name is Shadow, because first she’s all gray and also that she is, ahem, my Shadow. Dogs and other cats love her and she thinks this is her house. Kitten gets spooked whenever Diane Feinstein is around although we both look alike, Shadow sure knows the difference.

    Now about me, Hillary and the Coumadin.

    First, good news! I GOT MY LEGS BACK!!! I been walking and exercising at the gym and I’d say my movement ability has improved by 70-75% because of this stent. And I told everybody at the hospital, everybody at my cardiac clinic, everybody on Facebook. It’s so nice to be able to walk again. No, it’s not perfect but I am quite happy with the result.

    Now when I was in the hospital they discovered I had a bad case of AFIB and blood pressure off the wall so I got put on Coumadin and my blood pressure dosage was quadrupled.

    And guess what? I feel pretty good.

    Don’t know if y’all know anything about Coumadin but it’s a very serious drug. It’s so serious, hand to God, you can’t even eat KALE with the stuff.

    Coumadin prevents clots. It does NOT break up existing clots and this is important as regards Hillary. Evidently a heart with AFIB is more prone to throw clots. Coumadin removes vitamin K from the blood, vitamin K being what causes blood to clot.

    Hillary is also on Coumadin and this is not a medicine to take lightly. They must take a reading every few weeks if not more often to determine that internal bleeding is a danger.

    “Watch that your gums don’t bleed,” the nurse-practitioner told me, “also check for tarry stools”.

    Man I was freaked out with these instructions. Now I read an article about Coumadin by Hillary’s doctor who declared she prescribed Coumadin for the Sec of State to help dissolve that blood clot she had under her skull.

    The writer of the article declared this a blatant, that Coumadin does NOT break up blood clots though it does prevent future ones.

    “Any woman put on a lifetime of Coumadin is NOT a healthy, hale human being ready to lead the free world,” I paraphrase the writer and I am dumbfounded.

    Because yes I did get my legs back, but thanks to Hillary I learned all about Coumadin and I now know I am not healthy enough to lead the free world.

    Which is fine with me but folks, Hillary is way worse shape than me. I have never passed out, my eyes don’t go all over my head, I have not broken into a cough I can’t stop. And don’t forget I had a quadruple bypass almost ten years ago.

    AND I AM HEALTHIER THAN HILLARY!!!

    That’s all folks. This story with Hillary and the Coumadin happening the same time I’m getting some is almost serendipity.

    But I do know first hand how very serious that woman’s health issues are.

    Here’s what I don’t understand.....I really quite enjoy the show Shark Tank. Which is not to say I like Mark Cuban, one of the sharks....but I don’t dislike him.

    Well now that I think about it he did endorse Hillary and right there we see how stupid he is.

    But for the life of me I can’t understand why Cuban so un-nerves Trump. Trump has been way more successful than Cuban.

    It seems kind of petty to me.

    How is questioning Obama’s citizenship status racist?

    Goodness McCain’s status was questioned as was Ted Cruz’.

    It’s not about black and white.

    Which is not to dismiss your assertion. I suspect you’re right, that the goal here is to keep Trump on target as a racist but they’re really pushing it here.

    And why on earth would the media even go there? Yet all day all we hear is that Trump is a birther.

    Makes no logic.

    I been thinking about this birther thing all day and something is off here.

    First, out of the blue all of a sudden the world is supposed to get excited about Trump’s brief association with birtherism? I don’t care that the press assholes assert that Trump hammered on this issue for the past five years.

    He did not. Sure, once in a while he mentiond it but the guy was NOT running for president, at least not officially, and it wasn’t brought up that often. I’m a news junkee and over the past five years Trump has not been bombarding us with Obama and his birthplace.

    Further, why is this even an issue in THIS campaign, an issue nobody’s been worrying about.

    Nobody’s walked up to me and told me they want to vote for Trump but he’s driving them crazy with his birther stance so they cannot.

    I think that the OBAMA people have inserted this meme into the campaign. And I think they did it especially to have Trump come out an admit that Obama is an American citizen.

    Because as several of you have mentioned, this matter should be looked into AFTER the election, when Obama’s outta there. And when it is discovered, AT THAT TIME, the Obama’s birth is in question, then censure the man, remove him from history and void every legislative action he took.

    But instead of risking this, the Obama people wanted to get it out of Trump’s mouth that he accepts Obama’s citizenship so should the matter come up AFTER Obama’s gone, the press and liberals can hoot and holler like monkeys that Trump admitted Obama’s legality.....nanannie nannie boo boo.

    I mean how is it insulting to question the president’s citizenship and place of birth? Goodness knows Obama’s background is mighty suspect, hell I am not convinced he’s legal so far as his birth is concerned.

    This makes me a racist?

    Something not quite right about all of this.

    Wanted to take a moment and go over something Trump and his daughter came up with last week that was too quickly glossed over. Want to give y’all a point of view, something Trump came up with that has always bugged me.

    First background: I have been married four times, once to my childhood sweetheart who I married when after three years he left me for another woman.

    Hey, shit happens.

    Then I married next husband, father of my daughter, and he died when I was but 30 years old.

    I remarried once to a cop, my only marital mistake, and my last husband who I was with for 25 years and very happy with.

    The point of the above for which no one cares is that there were TWO periods of singlehood, two periods of very young singlehood, in my life. They were from age 23 to 27, then from 30 to 35.

    Again, point being for which no one cares, that’s almost 9 years of singlehood at a point when I was actively seeking a mate and sexually active.

    Now I only even mention this to right now dispel any accusations that I was promiscuous or slutty. I was not. My relationships turned intimate after a couple of months or so, like most relationships in the day.

    Hey, it’s part of dating....I didn’t plan it that way! But you’re talking nine years of dating and dealing with such as birth control.

    Now I didn’t want to take birth control pills all the time particularly during those periods of time when I was NOT dating anyone.

    It always pissed me off that should I begin to think this fellow might be around I have to go to a damn doctor to get birth control pills. Why couldn’t I (or even NOW, as Trump wants to change, CAN I) just boom, go to the drug store and pick up a month supply of the things?

    So Trump, with help from Ivanka, mentioned the same thing and dear Lord talk about treating women like idiots.

    First, why must a doctor be in charge of distributing these pills? Women know when a medicine isn’t working, it’s not like women are dropping dead from birth control pills all over the place.

    Second, women are then forced to go to a greedy doctor (because I believe doctors aren’t give up this good source of income without a fight) to get a BC prescript because right now I like Bob and might need birth control.

    Third, if they don’t go to the greedy doctor, they got to depend on the GUY to provide birth control. Let there be an accidental pregnancy and they’ll condemn the desperate choice of abortion.

    Anyway, I been mad about this for years even though at my age now birth control is not as big an issue for me.

    If Hillary really champions women, why doesn’t she get this thing straightened out?

    I mean they give out day after pills without need of a prescription...I’m not asking for the pills for FREE!

    I want women to stop being treated like second class on this matter and thanks for letting me get this off my chest.

    Morning Cousin Mike. Lost another McLaughlin yesterday, I am sad.

    But as to Hillary’s health issues, folks, Hillary is in way worse shape than me. If I have learned nothing this past week of medical mania, it’s how serious these blood circulation issues are.

    Not that I didn’t know it before but consider me now more personally educated.

    First, we at times mock Hillary’s ankles but folks, one of the very first signs of bad circulation is flaccid ankles. Now in Hillary’s case, she was born this way, as are many women but trust those ankles are a sign that the blood flows slowly and thickly.

    My ankles will swell like that after, say, a long car ride. But very seldom although if they do it’s considered quite serious.

    Hillary had a clot settle in her head, damn people, that’s dangerous as all get out. Bearing in mind that my sister, who is now 70 but suffered a horrible stroke at age 64, two youngers than I now am. So all my medical people are scrambling to unclot my blood for as it turns out irregular heartbeats such as AFIB cause blood clots to be thrown dangerously.

    So I and Hillary share the same kind of medical diagnosis and we are both about the same age.

    Folks, I could no more be president than the man on the moon, with my circulation issues and I never have coughing spurts out of the blue and have NEVER passed out from my medication or medical issues.

    I had a quadruple bypass some eight years ago, just so y’all know that I am not exaggerating although for the most part I am doing well.

    Of course I’m not going around denying my circulatory issues nor am I running for President.

    Hillary is not capable of that job. Sadly I think Hillary’s going to suffer a horrible stroke within the next five years.

    I don’t want that, but she’s a walking candidate for same.

    The Democrats need to deal with this.

    Couple of things this morning. First a beloved Aunt dies. Next the gray cat. Next my operation last week, turns out I have the same thing as Hillary.

    Heh.

    I was born Patricia McLaughlin. Yesterday my Aunt, Agnes McLaughlin, passed away.

    She was not, technically, my biological Aunt, in that she was married to my biological Uncle, my father’s brother. But I have been close to her all my life.

    She did not have a bad life and lived well into her 80’s. Her daughter-my cousin-wrote the book linked above, “God’s Mountain, McLaughlin’s Valley”.

    Goodness she researched our family’s history all the way back to the mid 1600’s when we were McGlocklins and most likely not even Irish.

    My family fought in the Revolutionary war and damn if we ain’t Americans to the bone.

    Hillary would consider the whole lot of us deplorable.

    Goodbye Aunt Agnes, goodness I loved you. Tell my Dad and Uncle Gray I said Hi.

    Last week I had an operation goodness hospitals and medical procedures, dear Lord.

    My cardio guy, all of 40 years old and looking just like Olympian Ryan Lochte (and darling of the cardiac unit) put a stent in my right leg. He intended to put about 20 in my left leg as that leg is so blocked I really have walking issues.

    “The blockage in your left leg is too near your hip bone for me to do anything,” handsome young doctor who could be my son tells me. “We just need a surgeon to go in and pull it out with a snip, I slip a stent in there, I go down to the next one, boom, another stent. I don’t even think we’ll need to do anything with that third blockage,” he finishes up.

    So okay we’re on that but bigger and more surprising things happened. Turns out I have something called AFIB and need to be on the very same medicine as Hillary! Caumodine, a clot-preventing, blood thinning medicine, was prescribed and so important that I had to leave the hospital and immediately pick it up at Walmart. Also quadrupled my blood pressure medicine and doubled this, on and on.

    But guess what? I feel quite good.

    Understand I have not resumed full activities, man they got me carrying no more than five pounds, not even driving for a couple of days! Again, I feel quite good.

    Tomorrow I go get my Caumodine test and Tuesdays going back to gym, but lightly.

    Seems like my heart and circulation were all over the place and yeah, I didn’t think things were right.

    All this because for some eight years I had a Muslim cardio guy that I could not understand a word he said.

    Finally, there’s the gray cat.

    Below, between the dashed lines is part of the eulogy I wrote for my beloved husband, Billy, deceased in 2013.


    Still and so, if I had to provide one personality characteristic that best described Billy, it would be his unending love for animals.
     
    He and I shared this love and we always had a house full of pets, cats and dogs and once, an unfortunate hamster. He carefully took every insect he captured or mouse he took half-alive from a cat’s mouth and took them outside as these critters were people too.
      
    While Billy loved all animals, it was the felines of the world he so adored. Indeed, if ever a human being could be depicted as a human cat, it would Billy. And don’t go thinking that this statement would insult Billy.
     
    Like the feline he so adored, Billy believed that emotion is best expressed as a gentle purr heard only by a few in the surround. Anger is best expressed as a quick hiss and a walk away. Quiet is a virtue, loud noises are bad, any changes in the living surround are to be met with suspicion and caution.
     
    He was a wonderful husband and as corny as it sounds, despite the fact that I am the exact opposite of a cat, he was my soul mate.

    We always had a slew of cats and yes I love animals. But I was never particularly a cat lover. With Billy gone, and a couple of his cats still alive, I take care of them, dearly, for Billy would cast a curse upon me if I did not.

    One day this gray, completely gray, kitten shows up on my porch, from out of nowhere. Understand here my house is in a community on a big highway, just not the sort of place loose pets roam around. It was just ONE kitten, a feral one at that. There was no big little as if a cat had one till they grew. I have no idea where this kitten came from but dear Lord I wasn’t about to let the little thing starve to death on my front porch, which I don’t know why it insisted on living on MY front porch when there are plenty of houses around. I do have cats inside, perhaps the kitten knew.

    I even contacted a favorite cat lady friend and arranged for her to come to my house and we would catch the thing, take it to the pound.

    Every day I offered food but Shadow, my obvious name for her, would not let me touch her.

    It’s now been over a month and Shadow loves me dearly. This kitten that would not let me touch her now is ALWAYS by my side. She plays with the dogs, the other two cats, one of which is over a hundred years old.

    Well I just don’t know because as I lamented forever on Facebook, a kitten is number five of the bottom five things I need in this life.

    Diane Feinstein adores Shadow and she thinks it’s odd too that this kitten showed up like this. Diane Feinstein knew Billy and we both love Shadow and Shadow loves both of us.

    I think Shadow thinks we are the same person.

    Heh.

    Anyway, as always, thank you AB for doing this thread, thank you Bray for weekly, thoughtful prose, thank you yon commenters for putting up with me and fleshing it all out.

    With Hillary having this clot problem, pretty serious with that Caumodine, I do not think she should even consider being President. Look at all these health problems with just running a campaign!

    It’s time for her to give it up for God’s sakes.

    Well I got a bit of snark on this issue.

    First, as soon as she began dancing I immediately rolled my eyes. Free form dancing, the “talent” of the talent-less.

    Second, I really wonder what were her parents thinking when they named her? Savvy?

    Her answer to politics was canned. Not bad, but prepared in advance, says nothing. Not that I think that Miss Americas should be getting involved in politics, there’s always a question or two.

    It seems she is religious and that’s a good thing.

    But mostly I consider Savvy Shields mediocre.

    You are absolutely right. He DID use poison gas against the Kurds. And this IS a weapon of mass destruction.

    This is yet another argument that Trump could use in favor of the Iraq war.

    Instead he says the Iraq war was a mistake.

    It was not.

    Imagine this crazy world today with stupid Saddam and his horrible sons in the middle of it. We’d still have to be doing those flyovers. Obama would for sure offer up the Kurds as worthless.

    You know I am so glad you said it did not look good.

    I was appalled.

    And for a moment, just a moment folks do not chastise, but my heart hurt for this woman. She wanted so desperately to control it but control it she could not.

    I remember so much how my husband, who dealt with a BRAIN INFECTION, tried so hard to avoid a seizure, it was so awful, and he lost control of his bowels.

    And in that little part of my heart that actually felt pity for this woman trying to hard, so desperately hard, to garner that which she is convinced belongs to her. This same woman who yesterday called me deplorable.

    Man this is just bitter stuff and with America now a nation of emotion filled governing this is really bad for the Hillary campaign.

    I am now watching a DVR of Face the Nation and host John Dickerson just broke in with a flash that Hillary fainted while getting in her car at the 9-11 ceremony.

    Overseas newspapers reporting this; Twitter going crazy.

    Says Hillary felt faint due to heat (temp 80deg in NY) and went to Chelsea’s apt to rest.

    I think she’s probably in the hospital. If they didn’t take her to the hospital for sure somebody will be sued.

    I know about the conveys into Syria and even those weird transportable medical labs we found.

    Probably nothing good in any of that but first, they really never proved anything, a fact I find hard to believe.

    Point is, there simply was NOT widespread presence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and I kind of think we would have found something. I don’t think anybody really KNEW there were weapons but let us not forget how Saddam intentionally WANTED the world to believe he had WMD’s.

    And maybe he had some but moving on, more than anything, with America having been attacked and a wild card like Saddam, a man so disliked by his own people THAT THEY HUNG HIM.....it was best that he be taken down what with the 9-11 attacks being a good reason.

    Taking down Saddam Hussein was not a dumb thing to do. Pulling out and leaving immature and scarcely trained soldiers to defend themselves WAS A DUMB THING TO DO!

    then Obama gives neighboring enemy Iran all kinds of money and of course Iraq’s going down.

    But because Saddam was any kind of good guy, not that the world is not better without him, not even because the Iraqis are helpless stupid people. The Iraq was should have been eminently successful but it was not because the concept of bringing down Saddam was a bad idea.

    I wish someone would stop treating us like we were all born at night....only not LAST NIGHT!

    I am glad you bought up that issue. Because on this matter I think both Hillary and Trump got some things wrong.

    First, as regards Saddam having weapons of mass destruction, yes it was widely believe he did have them but I have a different take.

    Recall if you will that every damn day America had to fly jets over Iraq in order to defend the Kurds. Without those jets Saddam had a spare jet or two to bomb those people he so despised. So we had that cost to endure every day, let us not forget this. And some days Saddamn fired at the jets so there’s that.

    For sure, from the many hints, Saddam WANTED weapons of mass destruction but with those jets flying over head and Saddam not really having much of an army, he probably couldn’t get anyone to store or produce WMD’s in Iraq. But we all know Saddam was a bad guy and I think it was planned, wisely, that the occurrence of 9-11 would be used as an excuse to take out Saddam.

    Also, Saddam very much invited Al Queda to come practice their crimes in Iraq and this too was widely known.

    Saddam was a bad guy....HIS OWN PEOPLE HUNG HIM!!

    So why don’t Hillary and/or Trump stop it with this Iraq war being a mistake. It was not. Can you imagine a world with Saddamn being involved in all this ISIS nonsense?

    The best thing we did was take that guy out and I’d love to see someone, preferably The Donald, stand up and talk truth to the American people.

    Cause whether or not Saddam actually had WMD’s in Iraq, or Al Queda trainees, he sure would have if he could have.

    This bullshit about the Iraq war being a mistake, no it was not. The world is better off without Saddam Hussein. He brought nothing to the table.

    The bigger problem with Iraq is typical liberal war fighting....let’s get out as fast as we can. So America leaves a dysfunctional Iraq trying to fight neighboring Iran and other enemies with an army of misfits, come on people, Arabs are not known for their fighting skills except for putting on a bomb and blowing themselves up.

    Obama messed up Iraq and I’d sure like to see Trump stop with the Iraq war being a mistake and initiate a dialogue with the truth.

    Paul Wolfowitz from the Bush admin evidently one of those horrible RINOS.

    He tells Chuck Todd that he is against BOTH candidates.

    Why?

    Why would a Republican be against the Republican duly elected nominee? Remember when we all held our breath and supported McCain? McCain, whose claim to fame is a silly campaign finance reform nonsense that absolutely nobody in America cared about. But it was allegedly bi-partisan and the elected elite loved it because THEY are the ones all involved in campaign laws, revealing income taxes....stupid shit Americans don’t care much about.

    And how about how we held noses again and voted for Romney? Here’s a guy that NEVER would have gone to meet the Mexican president, who NEVER would have attended a church service in a black neighborhood, who NEVER would have stood up to Hillary and her gang as Trump has.

    I truly believe Trump is going to win this because Hillary is so mean and hateful, as are her followers, that Americans just won’t have any of it.

    Now she calls almost half the country deplorable.

    I once again point out, that as we are perusing the dog rescue center, we would walk past the dog marked as
    “deplorable”, indeed that dog would soon be marked for put down by euthanasia.

    Dumbest thing ever and today, on the Sunday talk shows, we got Hillary supporters defending this statement.

    Good morning AB, All.

    Yes good morning on this day of remembrance.

    Thank you Bray for weekly wisdom and thank you yon commenters for fleshing it all out for me. It should be a good day for political junkees like ourselves. And of course, thank you AB for reliably doing this thread every week.

    First, we are all deplorable, more on this later.

    I wish I could say on the morning of 9/11/01 that I was mid-deep out saving people or handling the details. But like most Americans, I was living my life, a kind of boring one.

    I remember thinking how it had been a slow news cycle and had the odd feeling that something big was about to happen. I was consulting for a property management firm near me and as the first airplane hit I was about to go out the door. The Fox and Friends people broke in with an emergency about a phone crashing into the World Trade Center. Just as I was about to leave for my job, ANOTHER plane hit. The Fox and Friends people got silent. “This is no accident,” one of the hosts said quietly.

    I didn’t know whether to sit down and watch or get out into my car to go to work. America was under attack and I didn’t know what to do.

    As it turned out I went to work that day. All the way I listened to the radio about the twin towers attack, then the pentagon got his. AT work the plane landed in Pennsylvania and at the point all the workers wanted to go home. None of us knew what was going on and believe it or not, MY DAUGHTER EVEN CALLED ME THAT DAY. Because once upon a time she really loved me. Everyone was calling loved ones that day. My beloved husband also called me and in due course I was on my way back home.

    The Baltimore beltway was bumper to bumper. All of Baltimore was letting out early PLUS we had the workers pouring in from DC. It was horrible, scary…..everyone just wanted to get home.

    Now about us all being deplorable….or at least half of us….man if I had to say there was one thing that will cost Hillary this election it’s got to be her calling half of Trump supporters deplorable.

    Deplorable? Deplorable means without merit, worthless, not worth living. Deplorable means no reasonable traits worth keeping alive. A deplorable dog at a rescue site would be quickly scheduled for euthanasia.

    Serious, did someone actually WRITE that word for her to use? Yes, calling Trump supporters any names of all is stupid but the worst word has to be deplorable. Because come on, Trump supporters are not deplorable, come on, not even Hillary’s supporters are deplorable for God’s sakes!

    I am so furious about her calling me this name….furious.

    And please note her quick flaccid apology yesterday.

    This is her Waterloo, I am serious.

    Another consequence of 9-11 for me was it was the day I joined FreeRepublic. Been raising hell and taking names ever since.

    After some thinking I’ve decided that my “stand” on illegal immigration is not quite written in stone.

    For while I assert that my lawn guy Beelow should not be directly deported along with his American-born son....it’s really more I don’t THINK that’s going to happen.

    Because if Beelow and his son and his entire family were to be summarily sent back to Ecuador as Trump says (which he does not, more on this later) you’ll not see me out on the street fighting to re-import Beelow, son and/or any of his family.

    He had enough time to know what was going down, to know that sooner or later the hatchet would fall. Seems to me he could have gotten LEGAL citizenship, as could many of these illegals.

    My point being you pick your battles and fighting for Beelow and any other illegal is not my battle. I do not think, however, that it’s going to happen that way.

    There will be law-abiding and hard-working illegals who need desperate medical care and this will make good copy. There will be cutie pies like little Jaden who will lose much needed schooling.

    I don’t know the cause and I’ve said often I don’t know the cure. But if I were to wake up a week after Trump’s election and discover that all the illegals, including Beelow, had been successfully deported, I’d be okay with that.

    I just don’t think it’s going to happen.

    And on that note, I watched Kelly, Trump’s new campaign manager on an interview somewhere today.

    I will paraphrase her: “Once we build a wall so that nobody can just walk over the border, once we make E-verify a requirement, once we deport all criminals here illegally, once we determine who was born here and who not....well after all that we can sit back and look at our options.”

    That’s pretty vague because she knows that no way, no how, are the Beelows and Jadens of the world going to be directly deported.

    I still think MY way is how it will go down.

    Actually cousin Mike (and you know you are LOSING THIS ARGUMENT in terms of public perception?) if I left my door wide open and got robbed....well of course I wouldn’t think the robber should go free but put on the common sense cap and quit with the endless graphics. I doubt many would feel sorry for the crime committed against me and not too many more would blame the robber.

    If everyone on my block left their doors wide open for whatever reason, and suddenly a bunch of robbers moved in and began robbing, why no one would be too surprised.

    IF everyone in my community left their doors wide open and advertised it as a “robber enabled community”, well those people in the community would come off as rather stupid.

    Now someday the doors will be closed and the robbers will be caught. I suppose they should be punished for their crime but recall the open doors and sanctuary communities and things take a different slant.

    If Beelow’s son can be deported, as I always thought someone born in America is American but I do know the Supreme court is involved in this....well okay. Whatever the reason, most people not addicted to graphics would agree the child should not separated from his parents. If the plan is to deport Beelow, then sending his son along would probably be the right thing to do.

    I can see the sight byte now. Cutie by Jaden screaming as his American relatives and friends plead with the big bad ICE agent to leave Beelow and Jaden.....

    .....it’s not going to happen. It’s NOT.

    No matter how many graphics you put up.

    My quick and dirty synopsis is probably how it’s going to come down.

    Because you get one visual of little Jaden crying whether his parents are leaving him or he is being forced to go with his parents.....the Dems will ascend to power and no Republican will ever get elected again.

    The live, die and breathe on emotional sight bytes.

    We in this country have to take blame for setting up and advertising sanctuary cities, for not bothering to deport those known to be here illegally, for not even bothering to use Everify which is easy as hell to use, I did it for nine years.

    It ain’t going to involve sending back 30 million (thirty million....heh, why not just invent numbers?) to their countries.

    Just not going to happen.

    So I feel the need to step forward and defend Rush!

    I been reading, on this board, lots of nonsense about Rush. Although I do understand that mileages vary.

    And to establish my credentials, you can count on the fingers of one hand how many Rush shows I missed last year.

    I will concur that, initially, Rush was a bit laid back about Trump. I got the distinct impression he was a Cruz guy.

    But Rush never said bad things about Trump. In fact, Rush defended and explained Trump more than he used mockery and sarcasm.

    Check into Mark Levin, a guy I used to adore but have shut out completely because Levin was very obvious in his dislike and mockery of Trump.

    also, let me add, Glen Beck really turned out to be a nut.

    So it’s not like I don’t listen to these radio shows because on any given day I listen to five to six hours of radio broadcasts, which includes three hours of Rush.

    I don’t know what folks who disparage Rush want the man to do. HE explains “Trumpisms” in a very spot on way. By me he’s very supportive of Trump but don’t forget, Rush walks a very tricky road. If he appears to be in the pocket of a politician he loses listeners.

    If he kissy cheeks Trump too awful much it would not look all that good for a radio personality.

    To sum up, I don’t get this sudden dislike of Rush.

    I do for Mark Levin, silly man. Glen Beck just makes me smirk. Ann Coulter is notorious for looking at her bread to determine which side is buttered. She has determined the bread is buttered on the Trump side but I am okay with that.

    Sean Hannity has never wavered in Trump devotion and I’ll allow that you don’t get Trump love out of Rush quite as much as Hannity (some would say it’s a little too much).

    But I do think that Rush very much supports Trump. If nothing else, Rush does not want to see Hillary win!
