Thoughts While Shaving for August 28

National political parties have held their political conventions, now the gloves come off … Hand to hand combat … both parties and candidates promoting themselves and tearing down their opposition … Not so bad at the local level, but different story at the state and national level…

Wonder what youngsters must think when mom and dad are so involved, sometimes saying ‘unkind’ things about candidates, then go to church on Sunday and talk or listen to how we are to treat our neighbors … Love thy neighbor as thyself, do good to those that despise you, and on and on…

Disagree till you hearts content, share differences on issues … but I do not care to listen to personal attacks on anyone and will not participate … Just my thoughts…

I am now Fact-Checking more and more … or checking the Snopes website to help me understand.

One more related issue … When one candidate or spokesperson is ‘tearing down’ anyone, attempt to determine who is paying for the message and then ‘google’ their site … Sometimes helps to understand … Trouble is, small print on TV ads and for a very short time.

So much for the political stuff … It will get worse before it gets better … Vote your conscience.

Days are getting shorter, high temps still in the upper 80s and low 90s … and Labor Day is fast approaching…
