As the year end approaches, we need to look at the winners and losers. The winners: Besides the obvious, the Broncos, Cavaliers and Cubs, there would be, I guess, Donald Trump. As for the losers, start with civil discourse.
We now know the way to be elected president is to call your competition as many names as possible, i.e., weak (Bush), small (Rubio), lying (Cruz), ugly (Fiorina) and, of course, crooked (Clinton).
The other big loser is the truth. Did anyone ever actually fact-check this guy. To do justice, I’d need two million words, but for the record, global warming wasn’t invented by the Chinese. And Hillary high on drugs? Is this what you really want for president? Guess so.
That said, he won and it’s time to accept it, so forget the demonstrations and violence. If he commits impeachable offenses, he should be impeached. If he does a lousy job, the electorate should rise up in four years and say, “you’re fired,” but until then, hope for the best; 2017 should be interesting. Maybe the Mariners will win the World Series. Oh, I guess not, even Trump wouldn’t promise anything that silly.
