Family Solidarity and Politics?

Summary:

I was on the phone this weekend. As it turns out, all my older siblings (I’m the baby) are planning to vote for Donald Trump. When my eldest big brother found out the other two were Trump supporters, he specifically called me so I could join the family solidarity. (Very sweet; not wanting me left out.) He did add…

I was on the phone this weekend. As it turns out, all my older siblings (I’m the baby) are planning to vote for Donald Trump.

When my eldest big brother found out the other two were Trump supporters, he specifically called me so I could join the family solidarity. (Very sweet; not wanting me left out.) He did add, he might have otherwise voted for Bernie Sanders, who he believes is now out of the race.

Did I try to argue with him? No, he’s 75 and was in a hospital bed when he made the call. (Just a bad scare. He’s going to be OK.)

Besides, when I started talking, and nearly made it to the point I wanted to make, he interrupted me. A visitor. The exact same thing happened when I talked to my sister. They’re social butterflies!

Did I tear my hair out? No, I chuckled about it afterward for hours. (If only they read my blog!)

Still, my eldest big brother is the smartest one in the family… Maybe I’ll send him some literature on Jill Stein.

View-Master

We all used to play with the View-Master.
Maybe siblings will yet “get the picture.”

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
