Rough Sailing On the Trumptanic

Surely I'm not alone when I say I fear not the so-called "deplorables" who voted for Trump but rather all those nice Hillary supporters who are wailing over the outcome of a fair election and scaring the shit out of everyone. Wandering throngs of these "non-deplorables" have been roaming the streets of several major US cities for the last two nights, allegedly "protesting" our new president-elect who thus far has done nothing since his election but meet peacefully with President Obama at the White House and duck into the Capitol for a stop-and-chat with members of Congress.

The "protests" involve, as usual, herds of troublemakers rioting, throwing rocks, looting, beating other people up and setting cars on fire. One young Latino woman I saw interviewed on TV kept marching as she shouted, "There will definitely be casualties, this is war!"  These folks are the scary ones, not Donald Trump. (At least not yet, anyway.) And what do they want to happen? Perhaps they hope that Trump will resign even before he takes office and say, "Never mind, here Hillary, you be president, life is too short for this." Personally I wish he would, since the poor man had a fairly nice life going for himself before all this started. Now it's a horrible mess for him and his whole family.

If only everyone would take a deep breath and realize we are all in this together, then go about their business and let the man show us his best side, the ship of state might right itself. Otherwise, it will certainly sink. I don't know about you, but I'm keeping my head down and staying close to the life rafts.
