Having not been so political for a time there are some things that can not slide. I am referring to this. Where you are told to rat out your neighbors for actions you think suspicious.
Caller: ringy dingy
Caller: I want to inform you about this guy in the neighborhood who is - different.
Cops: go ahead we need all the intel we can get.
Caller: He lives alone and we see him leaving most mornings early on foot and doesn't come back for a couple hours or more. Sometimes he has a bag on his shoulder. Nobody does that here. He's seen all around town on foot and no one does that either. He has no dogs and just one car and it runs. But sometimes it doesn't move for a week or more at a time. He rides a bike too all over and it has these two black bags one on each side of the rear wheel. A lot of times these black bags are packed full of something. There's a gray cat that hangs around his place too. Instead of a lawnmower he goes round and swings a cutter of some kind. Weeds don't bother us around here.
Cops: How many cats?
Caller: Just one but it looks like it could be mean. There's more too.
Cops: That's fine we got plenty to work with here. We'll get this forwarded to Central.
It's been my experience in respect to New York the state and the city there are two types of people and if anyone is offended - tough shit.
Outside the city the "Upstater's" who I have met and known so many of are a fine lot to the last. That is the honest truth.
Downtown Yorkers is another matter. A 180° matter.
Like most of them this Trump fellow is first of all a huge horse's ass. The other day I actually listened to a few seconds of him. Been years. What a New York prick.
Downtown Yorkers and Texans - hard to call. Sorry Fearguth.
It's not as much what this asshole says that I find interesting as the numbers of people who identify with it. Any one of these repug candidates pose close to an equal amount of a threat.
Our country is in severe divisive turmoil that continues to unravel in an ever quickening pace as we head towards what may be the most important election ever.
