Thanks for your compliment Dave! If I remind you of Joel or Joyce -- that means I could do a better job of separating people from their money.
I am afraid I cannot compete with Joyce and Joel...sorry to disappoint you.
With a marginal amount of talent and enough knowledge to get by --- I am able to get by with the things I need and sometimes a few things, but not everything that I want. Thank God - I work -- and it comes to be.
Being that said---
When something affects my feelings --- it probably doesn't get discussed at all.
When something affects my thoughts and beliefs -- it is up for conversation. It can be debated. Good people can disagree.
When something gets to the level of the conscience --- that's where the debate ends. Simply put -- one has to make a choice. The good cannot stand in support of the bad.
I am sorry if that still doesn't make sense. These statements of djt affect me not on the feeling level, nor the thinking/believing level, but this time on the level of conscience.
He is a bad man....and as a good person I cannot believe him to be good and cannot believe that good people can share the sentiments he has on immigrants and their countries.
I sleep tonight, with a good conscience.
..hopefully I'll be able to sleep..but it won't be my conscience that keeps me awake.
