The statement itself wasn’t necessarily a big deal, but a couple of days ago I logged out of Facebook on my laptop and shut off the app on my phone. The reason: politics in this country has become a hate fest and not only on my newsfeed, but also on the comments on the posts… Read More Check Your Hatred at the Door
Disclosure: I can’t stand either candidate. This ain’t an endorsement. Prediction: Unless Trump has a major screw up of historic proportions, he will be the next president of the United States.
