1. I tell you what I don't want, working, eating, riding next to people who are racist, sexist, bigots

I realize that is pretty intolerant of me

2. 1950. I was five years old, then.

It wasn't all that long ago, everyone.

3. When the dotard says "MAGA" this is what he means.

His people long for a return of Jim Crow. Sad. So unAmerican.

5. Well, it's issue-oriented...

... and cites facts. Even tells the reader to vote for the other guy if he doesn't agree with the candidate. While the sentiments may be appalling, the procedure is far preferable to what we have now. It is much easier to oppose honesty (however despicable) than the lies with which we are bombarded by the minute.
