My Elderly Husband Nearly Started a Riot at the Polling Place

this morning. He referred within the Republican committeeman's hearing to our president as "that lying sack of shit." Words were exchanged, partisans of both sides yelled at each other.

I think my husband won because the Republican's parting shot was "I'll pray for you."

4. Yep, hubby DEFINITELY won that round!!!!

The "I'll pray for you" is code for "I've treated someone badly and now I want to try to redeem the idea that I'm really a nice person".

10. When someone says that to me,

I thank them and tell them I can use all the prayers I can get.

Right now, the county and the world need those prayers, too.

12. Because when they say they will "pray" for us

all they mean is that they will pray that we come to agree with them!

ALL of them had better start praying for themselves. They have been duped by a con man, with little intelligence, and even less CLASS.

16. Electioneering within your polling place is illegal.

If he did that in my polling place I'd have asked him to leave.

27. As a fellow election judge, I concur.

What he did is illegal within a polling place. Anywhere else, hey, give 'em hell. But the polling place is sacred, and no place to nearly start a riot.

26. I always have a verbal response ready when I cannot take more of the ignorance.

Trump makes pointed comments easy. In addition situational awareness dictates the necessity to have counters ready on short notice and to size up the situation with a plan. This is resistance which is serious.

You have to remember Trumpsters do not expect resistance and resort to intimidation when challenged.
