    The first two images I took very near where we rent a year-round house in NW. CT. I have seen dozens of these signs popping up – post George Floyd. (That is important). ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ I talk to several Trump voters up here regularly. They had turned on him. They were not gong to vote for him. Until, until – George Floyd and BLM. They hate BLM. They hate Black Lives Matter. “It’s a Marxist organization Jerry; they are anarchists. Biden is a Trojan Horse for Socialism..”. And all the rest of the Fox News bile. They have found a way to return to their tribe and vote for Trump. Again. It was always and only race. Either on the surface or deep down. It is race. Always was. These signs are popping up. Even though all polls say Biden will win and I believe that – you cannot poll CASTE, you cannot poll Racism. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ After monumentally mismanaging everything else and dividing this country, overseeing the unnecessary deaths of more than 100,000 Americans, wrecking the economy, breaking the law, and spewing hatred – Trump now only has one thing to run on. One thing. Unfortunately it is the most potent force in America: Racism. Trump and the White Republicans are now fueling the fire of riots. He has nothing left to run on. And this alone? In America, it could be enough. This is what he is and what he will run on. Nothing else.

      Important not to lose sight of the fact that the caste system they want is white men on top. Men. Misogyny is the 800 lb gorilla. Sitting right behind its mate, the racism gorilla.

      We have to get rid of *both* if we ever want to have lives in which we’re not fighting gorillas.

      Recent example: Hillary would be in her rightful place without misogyny (as well as racism) providing enough votes to help steal the election. And how about the gorilla that’s given us to deal with?

    I can’t begin to describe the depression that has come over me this morning. It seems that Trump is climbing in the polls. How do I process this?

    This lying criminal, after all the damage he has done is now ascending in the polls.

    I need to take a break as I doubt I can absorb or understand this.
