If You Can't Change It, You Might as Well LaughI

I am referring to the political candidate fervor, slung accusations, denied wrongdoing and all that seems to be going into a modern Presidential election.  Reality TV has a lot to answer for and so does the Internet with its full permission to say any damned scurrilous thing the writer wants to say in complete anonymity.

We who might wish to change this sad situation cannot - we're vastly outnumbered.  So ... in the spirit of having a smile instead of a tantrum against what we cannot change ...

The MSM is biased for one candidate and show it daily.  Comfort yourself:  "It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."  Hamlet, Act 5 (I think.)

A comment on the Clinton Foundation, under investigation for the past year:  "I didn't know the Clintons were Catholics.  Apparently, while she was Secretary of State, the Clinton Foundation  sold favors like the Italian Popes of long ago."

Rudy Giuliani weighed in with a remark that if Hillary had an Italian last name, she'd be in jail."

Another comment from a chiding defender, "Oooo, you're on the rocket sled to hell!"  I kind of like that one - the visual. 

To make it through until November 9th, stay calm by using breathing exercises, do not read newspapers or listen to the news anchors but do read the Comments on various sites for a laugh. Remind yourself that America has survived WW1, WW2, Korea, Viet Nam and the Great Depression.  We're still here.   We've earned these laughs and we deserve them.
