Eleven & One-Half

THE TWELVE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS DONALD TRUMP HAS TAUGHT ME (Thing No. 11):

Words matter.

Of course they do and everyone should know that. But sometimes people throw language around purposefully to inspire other people to do the things they themselves want to see happen but do not want to be held accountable for. When bad actions follow their language, they can claim they were joking or throwing out a little sarcasm.

What I have learned from Donald Trump is that I have to take his words at their face value. Although he may call it sarcasm, his message is probably coded and will be understood by those who follow him closely. “Big protest in DC on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!”

Sounds like a lot of fun, doesn’t it? But his followers knew what he meant.

I volunteer as a photographer for our local community theater. I have opinions about politics and believe it should be every American's duty to become informed and participate in the discussion of issues. I began this blog to be able to stay in touch in ways I used to on Facebook. I deleted that account recently and hope to be able to share photographs and information relating to cultural and political events in our community. I am retired after a career in social work and post-secondary​ education.
