For my part in trying to help unity I am making a resolution [View all]

I will no longer write any ops that are unreasonably critical of Bernie. There is no longer any reason for me to take part in that type of activity. Regardless of how others act, I am just not interested in criticizing Bernie when we have this maniac Trump on the loose.
The more I watch him, the sicker he makes me feel.

I understand that people are feeling angry or upset with the changes coming up. No need to add to that. Hopefully, after a time, we can all come together. Trump is gross.
