1. Trump's Triumph . . . for Now

To borrow from Galatians 6:7, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked:  for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”

Last night, in a stunning upset, Donald Trump became our new President Elect, and barring anything unforeseen, he will become our nation’s 45th President on January 20, 2017.  Like many people, Democrats and Republicans, I could not imagine a candidate so categorically and demonstrably unfit for the office actually being elected.  But more than 59 million Americans voted for him (fewer than voted for Hillary Clinton, but Trump won the Electoral College). 

The 59 million Americans who voted for Trump voted for change—and change they will get.  But as the sage cautions, “Be careful what you wish for.”

Well, Terry, your piece was entertaining, informative, and with regard to your conclusion, right on the mark. As an acknowledged right wing neanderthal, I am in complete agreement. Perhaps by couching your argument in such a good read, more of our intellectual friends will understand the true immediate danger we all face, especially when considering the constant soft pedaling that terror still receives in so many quarters.

Best to Debra,

Thank you Terry for a most interesting and frightening analysis...I would have never thought of the ghouls and zombies of our imaginary classic tales coming to life (reality) in the form of ISIS, but they have indeed. Brilliantly said, and truly scary.

This piece and your spot-on comments about Trump make it doubly scary. Let's hope some sanity prevails and that we do not elect him into office. As to ISIS, who knows how to solve that one? What is this world coming to?
