What a find!

So I was roaming through a second-hand store near the house today--with Murphy and Belle both roaming around off-leash in the store at the owner's invite--when I happened on this cool belt buckle on the bottom shelf of a display case. The owner took my low-ball offer on it, saying that after hearing the news about Trump cinching the GOP nomination, she just wanted this thing out of her store, too. Evil aura and all that. (Yeah, it's that kind of place...)

But I'll cherish it, and reflect on the better days when we elected better leaders and didn't treat elections like some sort of reality show.


Shiny, eh?

    1. The way things are going now, I'll be writing somebody in in November, so it might as well be the Zombie Reagan/Zombie Nixon ticket.

  2. What is really scary, if the choice is between Trump or Hillary, one of them is bound to win.

    For myself, I'm voting the Cthulhu/Beelzebub ticket. Why vote for the lesser evil?

  3. I guess you just have to decide who would do the most harm, Trump or Hillary. We live in interesting times.
