Sort of fits my mood.
I greatly fear we will lose today and I wonder if America is still "American" enough to recover.

Heh...youse up early. Cain't sleep?

Oddly, Iamnot, I was comin' to see ya first today--ya beat me...but sorta knowed we's worriet on same wavelength.

My fear is we jes' may need a hard lesson.

Ever wonder about cancer? I mean, it kills its host for pete's sake.

The ideology (idiotology) that drives this heah campaign is a cancer an' it is determined to kill its host.

I think we'll have to agree to disagree... I believe that America is resilient.

Now, is that photo symbolic of the past 8 years or prophetic about the next?

So confusing.

Aunty Belle said...

Hey Joey B--welcome!

I done left ya a long jaw at yore own blog on the matter of it all.

Anon, heh...I had not seen that second one. Thanky.

FC, both? The latter fer shure.

Nasty bird. Take today's all important TROLL POLL. Remember to include COUNTY and STATE predictions!

Jenny said...

A day we're all allowed to vote, is STILL a good day. God Bless America.

moi said...

Great photograph. I'll second A.B. because that at least puts a positive spin on an otherwise dark day.

Howdy Belle,
I think Joey B has got things just right. That bird is resilient in the face of peril. I think our political process up to this day has been a gruesome lesson thus far...and am still praying it has been THE wake up call for the good and silent majority. I still believe in good over evil but would like to see the "good" take to the streets en masse, abandon their silence and start screaming!

Aunty Belle said...

Troll, I'se persuaded by A.B. and Moi....but that bird is an eagle! He's got his eye on thangs...an mayn't like what he sees.

Whatever the outcome, Americans will figger it out--this mayhap is a lesson some folks need to have taught to them experientially. Some people need a third degree burn afore they git it that fire ain't jes' a pretty ;light.

Fishy, well, JOey is riught about resilience but I agree wif him that we shall simply agree to disagree on politics/ But I welcome all voices (politely expressed.)

crows will now be regulated under interior mandate 6640E. photos of crows are a violation of federal law as set by HB 221 and is punishable by fine and/or life in prison. scarecrows are a form of hate crime and is now punishable by fines and/or death.
