Was in Milton, DE today

A friend (who is a teacher) bought a house--and I loved it; ranch, huge yard, huge garage, metal roof, lots to like. Then I noticed that he is sandwiched in between two houses with some version of a Trump flag flying---one said "Trump 2024: Take America Back) and I couldn't read the other one.

The most disturbing thing about the whole situation is that, over dinner, my friend (granted, he doesn't follow politics much) states that "If Trump and Biden run again in 2024, I'd have a hard time deciding who to vote for...and I think Biden would be crushed in a landslide."

After threatening to stab him in the neck with my fork, he explained that he (and "a lot of people) blame Biden for:

Gas prices
Not stopping COVID sooner

This led to a protracted argument, but I learned two things. One, I don't like his house anymore. Two, I have a lot of educating to do with this teacher.

Holy moly......

What does make me feel better is the giant BIDEN sign painted on a barn at a farm along Rt. 1. on my way to the beach Makes me smile and feel better every time I see it!

2. A teacher? Really? I know lots of teachers, and they are all very progressive

And know the damage the Republican party has done to education.

3. We live near a house in Newark that had been sporting a "Don't blame me, I voted for Trump".

NOW it's sporting a Trump 2024 sign. UGH!!! I often fantasize about zapping it with a bleach-water or lemon juice filled supersoaker - eventually fading it into nothingness.

6. I live near

a house that has a garage facing Rt. 141 (Biden's route to the airport) that says "Let's Go Brandon!!"

And I live in a very Democratic area. I guess there will always be a-holes around. I'm just glad none of my direct neighbors (as far as I know) are Trumpers.

5. For now

I think he is VERY, VERY ignorant about reality. I was just wondering this weekend why we are still friends. He drinks a lot (I rarely drink), he's not handy at all (I love fixing/tinkering), and now this.

And he is a teacher---works with special needs kids---so you'd think he'd have more understanding of differences & more compassion (what Repukes lack).

It was a crappy weekend.
