We now officially have divided government. Republicans strengthened their hold on the Senate, Democrats take over control of the House. The question is, what is next.
Will Democrats legislate or investigate? President Trump is all about deal-making. With the leverage of the House, Democrats can push for infrastructure spending, immigration, health care and other important topics. However, if Democrats fall to desires of the far left and begin endless investigations and the absurd suggestions of impeaching Trump and Brett Kavanaugh (newsflash: it would take two-thirds of a stronger Republican Senate to convict), America does not win.
Do what is good for America or continue litigating 2016.

On the heels of a very important election where positive energy is swirling, I find a post on Facebook last night regarding the golf course. Why am I surprised that this has not come to fruition? After attending many meetings in the neighborhood with all the parties involved, sending emails and letters to the county commissioners to no avail, I am shaking my head again, why am I surprised?
I will wait again to see what will come of this debacle, hopefully keeping the properties (golf course fence line) free of litter and decay. Oh, by the way, looks like someone drove through some of the concrete where the golf course sign is.
Change cannot come soon enough.

With the passage of the school tax, schools will be happy to waste more of our money.

I sit here physically ill and sad at the direction our country is going. To see the wins for greed and isolation makes me cry.
If this is Make America Great Again, then there is less hope for us than I thought. The divide will only grow, the poor poorer in spirit, health and wealth. The lies worked.
I thought most religions said love others, treat them as you want to be treated. Seems like "faith" is a lie, too. The most fervent are the most hateful. "The enemy has come, and he is us" still rings true.
Can each of you look in the mirror and be happy and proud of what you see? What you hate in others may be a projection of what you are or do. Take that thought and, if even for a moment it might have some truth, then maybe there is hope for a better world.
Treat each other like we did in those first post-hurricane days: kindly, courteously and willing to help anyone.
I challenge all of you to imagine everyone you see as you, and act accordingly. How wonderful a thought. Wish it wasn't a fantasy.
