Or perhaps not. And that's okay.
If the topic is uninteresting to you, no problem. Just skip over it and go to the next topic.
*Waits for the room to clear*
I don't like either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. I've been listening to my conscience and thinking through which candidate I'll vote for, and it's been a challenge at times. For a while, I toyed with voting for one of the alt candidates, but that would be wasting a vote and taking the easy way out of making a decision.
My indecision came to an unexpected end Tuesday while watching this video of Reverend John Lankeit delivering a sermon from the pulpit of Saints Simon and Jude Cathedral in Phoenix.
This means everything to me. Which I am moved to write about it. It may not mean a thing to you, we each have free will to think and believe as we have chosen.
I no longer have any question about which candidate will receive my vote, and why.

Will Obama and Hillary lead us into a war with Russia just because they are claiming that Trump and Putin are butt buddies?

No more "oops-sorry-we-bombed-your-allies" little "mistakes"will be permitted in Syria:
Russia’s Defense Ministry has cautioned the US-led coalition of carrying out airstrikes on Syrian army positions, adding in Syria there are numerous S-300 and S-400 air defense systems up and running.Translation: if the US pretends to mistakenly bomb Syrian ground troops, Russia will pretend to mistakenly shoot down US planes.
Russia currently has S-400 and S-300 air-defense systems deployed to protect its troops stationed at the Tartus naval supply base and the Khmeimim airbase. The radius of the weapons reach may be “a surprise” to all unidentified flying objects, Russian Defense Ministry spokesperson General Igor Konashenkov said.
According to the Russian Defense Ministry, any airstrike or missile hitting targets in territory controlled by the Syrian government would put Russian personnel in danger. The defense official said that members of the Russian Reconciliation Center in Syria are working “on the ground” delivering aid and communicating with a large number of communities in Syria.
“Therefore, any missile or air strikes on the territory controlled by the Syrian government will create a clear threat to Russian servicemen. Russian air defense system crews are unlikely to have time to determine in a ‘straight line’ the exact flight paths of missiles and then who the warheads belong to. And all the illusions of amateurs about the existence of ‘invisible’ jets will face a disappointing reality,” Konashenkov added.
Interesting that all the drums beating about how the evil Rooskies bombed an aid convoy have fallen completely silent. Sometimes, the probable truth of a narrative can be discerned by how quickly it is abandoned.
The shift, described in interviews with immigration lawyers, federal officials, and current and former judges, has been occurring without public attention for months. It amounts to an unannounced departure from the administration’s widely publicized pronouncements that cases tied to the so-called surge of 2014 would be rushed through the immigration courts in an effort to deter more Central Americans from entering the United States illegally.
The delayed cases are those of nearly half of the Central Americans who entered the United States as families since 2014, and close to a quarter of the total number of Central Americans who entered during that period, according to figures from the Justice Department.
The delays are being made as a cost-saving measure, federal officials said, because of a lapse in enforcement that allowed immigrants who were supposed to be enrolled in an electronic monitoring program to go free.

A British woman misplaced a sex toy before realizing it was lodged inside her backside — still vibrating — forcing doctors to perform emergency surgery.
Emma Phillips, a 24-year-old student teacher from the town of Wallasey near Liverpool, was getting busy with boyfriend Lee Miller, 29, on Saturday morning when they couldn’t find their 7-inch-long vibrator.
She pressed on her stomach and could feel vibration, according to The Sun newspaper in London.
“We were looking around the bed in case it had fallen out,” Phillips said. “When I leaned on my stomach I could feel it vibrating — it was stuck low down and at one point was even wedged behind my hip.”
Desperate times called for desperate measures — and BBQ tongs.
“For a while Lee was suggesting all kinds of wonderful options,” she said. “He tried a kitchen fork handle, which we won’t be using again, and said he could feel it at one point but that it was too far up — it was a goner.”
She added: “He tried BBQ prongs too but after a certain point — after an hour of trying — we knew were going to have to go to hospital. We were both a bit shocked.”

Poor kid was diagnosed with cancer on his spinal cord at one year of age. Worse than that debilitating condition, he's stuck with two Democrat activists for parents. Viewers in Colorado, and elsewhere presumably, are treated to the lad's parent's political position through his mouth. They're displaying their child to use to their political advantage. So, whereas the boy could be pursuing a childhood unencumbered with adult concers he has his parent's obsession for additional burden.
And it works!
On viewers such as the commenters on the CBS website, to a person, so very sanctimonious, so very unaware this vulnerable demographic is not so untouchable as they insist by their p.c.
In part, the Trump phenomena is reaction to stifling p.c., in part, I said, that seeks to control by controlling language. And here is Hillary's PAC applying p.c. as usual business. And in this I do know whereof I speak. They've sunk half a million dollars into promulgating this ad and this conceit and it works only on Democrat voters already in the tank for Hillary and already set against Trump. In the end it's really quite absurd.
And you can actually see the strings of the puppeteer. No you can't, I lied again. But I'm making a point over here, okay?
Don't watch this video because I do not like it. It's only put here as evidence.
- Reduce the 17-week, 16-game season to 15 weeks, with 14 games.
- Ban all politics by players and the league. No more flags on helmets, pink cleats, or protests. If the league can discipline a player for wearing the wrong color wristband, it can do so for failing to stand at attention, Bud Grant-style, for the anthem. Black helmet stickers for one game to honor a deceased player, coach, or owner are acceptable.
- Cut down on the number of flags, particularly those that nullify a big play without having directly affected it. And get rid of instant replay. It's only made matters worse, to the extent that no one even knows what a catch is anymore.
- Stop emphasizing the pass. 500-yard passing games are flag football and BYU, not the NFL. Pass interference is 10 yards, automatic first down.
- Encourage more white players by adopting standard, race-neutral 2-game bans for an arrest, 4 more games for a conviction. Teams will tend to prefer the more law-abiding marginal white players over the more athletic marginal black players because the former will be able to stay on the field.
- No more wild card teams. Win the division, make the playoffs. Two rounds and the Super Bowl will end playoff fatigue.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin challenges the attorneys general of all 50 states to review the training of police officers in light of the recent shooting deaths of several African American suspects.
Sean Hannity: Megyn Kelly, You're a Hillary Clinton Supporter
One More: I forgot to include this one:
Working class white men saw their income drop 9% between 1996 and 2014, according to a new report from Sentier Research. This group, who Sentier defines as having only a high school diploma, earned only $36,787, on average, in 2014, down from $40,362 in 1996. (More)
Meanwhile, college educated white men saw their income soar nearly 23% over the same period, from $77,209 to $94,601.
Conservative pundit Sean Hannity leveled what he might consider the worst insult imaginable at anchor Megyn Kelly in a tweet Wednesday night, which said she "clearly" supports Hillary Clinton.
The tweet was apparently in response to Kelly comments earlier in the evening on The Kelly File when she accused both presidential candidates of avoiding tough interviews.
"They're both in their own version of a presidential protection program," Kelly said. She said Clinton makes sure "she is not in a place where she feels uncomfortable or anything unexpected could come at her, which is why she sat for a half an hour with Mary J. Blige, the singer, which is why she did Entertainment Tonight this evening."
This is a large rescued wild animal sanctuary build at Hudson Colorado, and I hadn't heard of that place either until tonight.
It is located directly north of the Denver International Airport, so the sound of jet engines must be comforting. It's as far north of Denver as Boulder and a little farther east of Denver as Boulder is west of Denver, if that makes sense, that is, if you were to triangulate. Here, look.
Of course the main stream media and all of the Nevertrumpers who pretend to offer "advice" would never want Trump to broach this topic. Never mention anything about the Clintons and what their administration would look like. Non stop criminality. Investigations. Impeachment proceedings. A replay of the first time around. With the main stream media covering up and the so called conservative opposition rolling over so their tummy can get rubbed.
American is on the pool table and the Chinese, Soros, the Kochs and all the rest are lined up for the train.
After a wave of creepy clown sightings and crimes committed by people in clown masks, professional clowns around the country are fighting back by declaring 'Clown Lives Matter.'
People in clown make up or costume have been spotted around the country in recent months, resulting in headlines questioning what exactly is going on. Many people have been frightened by the sightings and, in recent days, people dressed as clowns have begun robbing people.
Professional clowns see this as a threat to their livelihood. Jordan Jones, aka Snuggles the Clown, told a Pennsylvania TV station that his work is suffering because of it.

So what is the smartest thing I ever did? Go to Florida right before a major hurricane hits.
I went to Florida for a wedding this weekend. A beach wedding. Imagine that.
So now everything is fucked up. We don't know if there will be a wedding. We don't know if there will be a Florida.
I just think it is all hype. But we shall see what we shall see. I might not be posting as I might not have power. I am counting on Ed to carry the ball for Trump. Fight the good fight buddy.
This is the rough draft that experiments with which type of mechanism to use, the placement of things, their size, they way they work, how they move, the directions they move, the best angles to use, how they interfere with each other, how they fold back, types of tabs, their size and their placement, the placement of dialog and how the mechanisms stack and bulge when folded, how they all open.
It's all very rough and worked out on inexpensive card stock.

A total of 1,992,219 background checks were processed through the bureau's National Instant Criminal Background Check System for the month of September, higher than the 1,795,102 conducted in September 2015.
The number of checks run through the FBI's NICS system is a reliable indicator of how firearm sales are trending, though there is no precise correlation between the number of checks and the number of guns being sold. Licensed dealers are required to run a check in the database every time they make a sale, but sometimes turn buyers down.

If fat-shaming is wrong...... what about basement-living-shaming and barista-shaming?
"No. That's somebody else."
What a bummer! But then checking on that new report [hillary, gurney, akron] at Infowars, commenter The Gooch said "Has anyone checked on Hillary today? She hasn't had a coughrence in almost a day!" And that malapropism of his had me laughing so hard that my dread evaporated and replaced with mirth. Levity of the darkest kind. That makes me bad. But I don't care.
Christians fret over the idea of meeting their maker. Religious people, even today, still tend to regard the immediate afterlife coming face to face with God, or with Jesus, or with St. Peter barring their entry to heaven until their deeds in life are assessed for worthiness by weighing their thoughts, their sayings, their deeds as written in the "book of life." After all the teaching of Jesus aimed at inculcating a new concept of God as loving father, Christians still tend to hold an impression of God as supreme bookkeeper whose main interest is making damaging entries against his children on Earth. And that's a real shame so far as their own spiritual development goes.
Nevertheless, having said all that, it's still fun as hell imaging Hillary's crimes of raw ambition against her own party, her government, against the unwitting citizens of the United States, even against citizens of other countries, by her insatiable grasping, her distorting of everything, her straight up corrupting every person and every thing around her being weighed and measured for her disposition in the hereafter. Since we cannot have justice for them all in the present.
In the Egyptian Duat, or Amduat, there are several names for these scrolls of spells collected over thousands of years and changed in nature as they developed, known as "The Book of Going Forth by Day" or "Going Forth Into the Light" originally upward, then later subterranean, known today commonly as "The Book of the Dead," one of the chief spells, the spell most recognizable, the spell that is illustrated the most, and this is where Egyptian hieroglyphs are pulled down from text and developed into real elaborated art, we see the deceased's heart weighed against a feather before they can proceed.
And you think, "Oh man, that means everyone is doomed because all actual human hearts weigh a lot more than a feather. No fair!"
It means, the contents of one's heart is weighed against the Maat, itself meaning "balance." Conceptually then, the contents of one's heart (a pharaoh's heart) weighed against balance itself.
Eventually it became a all encompassing concern for every official familiar with these myths and these spells. It's why they were constantly repeating in their formulaic writing when referring to a king "the justified" and included along with a whole list of epithets that sound like Star Trek's Lwaxana Troi bring introduced to officials. Here, in the translation of the stela of Mere, described as a butler, but that's another translator's liberty, Merer has written for posterity what he would have us all know:
First all the epithets for Anubis for an offering through the god.
who is upon his mountain
in the place of embalming
Lord of the sacred land
In all his beautiful and pure places
All that is very formulaic. This is seen everywhere. "An offering of bread and beer." And now more formula applied to himself, Merer.
For the worthy of honor.
Butler and overseer of the butchers.
Of the entire nome of Edfu.
Priest of slaughtering and offering in two temples.
On behalf of 13 rulers (he's counting dead rulers, because that's quite impossible. He's exaggerating)
Never was wrongdoing in me.
I did not steal.
I was not spat in the eyes.
My beauty of speech.
The knowledge of my council.
My bending of shoulder (respect)
I have done what the great ones desired.
I am a character beloved of his companions.
I have advanced to the front.
I have attained honored state.
My heart acquiesced to Maat. (Inclined to the feather)
I have never delivered a living person to a potentate (falsely accused)
Oh my papa
To me he was so wonderful
Oh my papa
To me he was so good
No one could be
So gentle and so lovable
Oh my papa
He always understood
Gone are the days
When he would take me on his knee
And with a smile
He'd change my tears to laughter
Oh my papa
To me he was so wonderful
Deep in my heart
I miss him so today
Oh my papa
Oh my papa
Oh my papa
In your twenties, you get do-overs for mistakes you made as a teenager.
In your thirties, you can get a do-over for mistakes you made in your twenties.
In your forties, and maybe even in your fifties, you can still get do-overs, although you'd hope not to need them for having acquired wisdom.
But in your sixties and beyond, you really don't have much opportunity (or time) for do-overs. Which is why we traded Mr's. Haz's responsible, proper, staid, level-headed, right-thing-to-do, economical, four door, fuel-mizer sedan on a convertible. A three hundred twenty horsepower convertible. Because we might not get the opportunity again.
We took a drive on this spectacular autumn day. When this day ends, we won't get to do it over. Days (and years) are like that.
Perfect blue skies, not a cloud in sight. Temperature in the sixties, crisp, clear air. We played the Elvis station on Sirius, and drove narrow two-lane back roads. Roads where the hardwood trees form a canopy over the lanes; a tunnel of gold and red and green and brown leaves, with the sun shining through in places like God smiling on us.
The dry aspen, birch, and poplar leaves made a light crunching sound when we drove over them; the wind from the car scattering them to the shoulders.
We laughed, we chatted, we smiled non-stop. If you miss a day like this, you don't get a do over. The day is gone.
Take a break from what you do. Find a moment or an hour for peace and contentment.
You might not get to do it over.
