Trump

Trump is building a cult of personality. He will scapegoat any unpopular group and promise to solve all problems in an unexplained way. He will openly encourage violence and hatred.

I am afraid of Trump and I want to stop hiim. I want him to lose the election by the largest margin in American history.

Update 8/4/2016: Trump's campaign has crashed because he attacked the father of a dead Muslim war hero, and doubled down when criticized. Instead of kissing babies, he insulted the mother of a crying baby. A supporter gave Trump his Purple Heart, the medal received by those wounded in battle. Draft evader Trump said &quo;I always wanted to get the Purple Heart. This was much easier.&quo; My favorite election analysis website, predicts that, if the election were held today, there would be an 88% chance that Secretary Clinton would win a majority of votes in the electoral congress. Note that this does not say much about the margin of victory.

Update 8/4/2016 at 11:56 am: Chance of Secretary Clinton winning is now 91.6%. Donald is sinking like a stone.

Tilda

We adopted Tilda on January 16, 2010 from the North Shore Animal League. She weighed 35 pounds, and was at least three years old. She looks like a Lab / hound mix, and she behaves like a hound. Kath suggested the name Matilda ("mighty in battle"), a fine name for a dog who has survived abandonment and a broken leg. Two syllables makes a better calling name, so we shortened it to Tilda.

She barks too much.
