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.”

Very well said, Terry. As the shocking news begins to sink in, all the potential ramifications bubble up. If this were not enough to digest on the day-after, his identified cabinet selections exacerbate each frightening possibility.

Of all the campaign promises Trump has made, none is more fraught with danger then his promise to "cancel" the Paris agreement on climate change.

Down here in New Zealand, there is, as elsewhere, shock at Trump's election. Your thoughtful words are a relief to the harsh rhetoric that has ensued over the past year or so. Vested interests in all societies need a shake up from time to time so that they reflect the public sentiment. Shake them too violently without regard to the public though has serious consequences. Let's hope that can be avoided.

Regards to you and our mutual friend Dan

Thank you for bringing an element of sanity to a completely insane experience.
