The Election Is Trump's To Lose

Monday, November 5, 2018

The election is Tuesday. It is likely to be both a referendum on Trump and the swelling of angry voters expressing doubts and hope. 

This election is Trump's to lose. It is my hope that he does and that better voices, less strident, less angry, might come through all that is present in the United States.

Trump may have helped the economy. The tax cut he no longer brags about benefits only one group, those that already have money.

I cannot hang the flag of the winner on Trump. He is only a facilitator with support from the government run by the GOP.   Lawsuits against Trump are many and the Mueller investigation will end sometime, hopefully soon.

Could we please have decency and respect in the person holding the biggest job in this country and nearly the world.? Trump is not a decent person; honorable, kind and the big word, empathetic.

Building 2 Large Animal Shelters In Chattanooga Makes Absolutely No Sense

I read the Chattanoogan story titled, “Humane Educational Society Officials Say Chip Baker Trying To Derail $10 Million County Gift For New Shelter.” The story of Commissioner Chip Baker along with other commissioners reconsidering the investment of a new second animal shelter for Hamilton County is hope for common sense.
