I know that the "Unite the Right" atrocity was a few weeks ago now, but...

...as the time goes on, I get more and more pissed off.

While I have been estranged from my father for the past 32 years for a multitude of reasons, I have always honored the fact that he honorably served our country in two wars. He was an Army Air Corps bombardier in Europe in the second World War. While he didn't get a scratch in all of the heavy combat in which he participated, he DID see his beat friend die when his bomber flew into German flak. I also had four uncles in that war. My father's brother was a bombardier in the Pacific and three of my uncles were at Normandy. Only two came home because my Uncle Al never made it to shore, being shot and/or drowning mere steps off of the boat.

I am SO moved that Donald Trump thinks that my Uncle Al and my father's best friend were killed by nice people.

My stepmother's uncle, my great Uncle Felix, was a holocaust survivor. I don't remember which concentration camp but I know it wasn't Auschwitz because nobody hears THAT name and ever forgets it. I only saw Uncle Felix when I was 8 in the Summer of 1963. My two most vivid memories of him are of the number tattooed on his forearm and of how the Los Angeles police sirens at the time sounded just like the Gestapo's sirens when they came for his family and other Jews. Whenever Felix heard those sirens,he got a look of abject terror on his face. His wife and all of his children were all gassed by the Nazis.

I am SO thrilled that Donald Trump thinks that my Uncle Felix's family was exterminated by nice people.

My sister in law is Mexican, as are my two nieces and nephew.

I'm So delighted to know that Donald Trump considers people that I love to be rapists, murderers and drug dealers.

I have a distant cousin who reports for a small newspaper in the Suburban Philadelphia area.

It warms my heart that Donald Trump considers a member of my family to be an enemy of the people.

In my 62 years we've had very good Democratic presidents, Ike, a great man who was a good president, bad presidents, an idiot president in Bush the second and a senile president in Reagan.

While I will never use the title "president" to describe Donald Trump, I will say that this is the first time In my life, and I dare say the first time ever, that an occupant of that office bases his administration on nothing but anger, resentment and hatred. The disease is the 62+million morons who put him in office. Donald Trump is the symptom.

I'm not even entirely sure where I'm going with this, except to say that aside from simple political opposition, this is personal because he's talking trash about my family, and I will give his treasonous ass NO pass on that.

That's my 2 cents, and quite possibly over priced at that. Thanks for reading.

PEACE!

3. BTW, my father was recalled for the Lorean war.

He spent that war at Wright Patterson AFB investigating UFO reports, teaching an English Lit class at the University of Dayton and cheating on my mother.

PEACE!
