Oh God, three more weeks.........

A few thoughts on the last week: A Trump spokesperson just said we need to stop talking about irrelevant issues of the past the candidate has already apologized for and move on to the important issues at hand: like Monica Lewinsky and Paula Jones. * * * * * * * * * * Donald Trump's former lawyers said this week that they used to meet with him only when another lawyer could be present to protect themselves from his creative memory. * * * * * * * * * The makers of Tic Tac condemned Donald Trump's remarks about grabbing women's private parts and taking Tic Tacs when he kissed women on the lips. The makers of Skittles have also condemned Donald Trump's statements comparing Muslim extremists to Skittles. Never before in American presidential election history has a candidate been condemned by two candy companies. * * * * * * * * * * The second Presidential debate took place - this was the first time in US history that parents prevented their children from watching an election debate, during which Trump used the non-word "bigly." Fact checkers reported that Trump told a lie every 1.2 minutes during the debate. * * * * * * * * * I wonder if Donald Trump will share his secret plan to defeat ISIS after he loses? Or is he so unpatriotic that he won't care........or .................perhaps there is no plan....... * * * * * * * * * *In further fallout from the Donald 'Trump tapes, Billy Bush is seeking political asylum in Russia it was reported today. "Grandma Barbara Bush summoned me for my conversation with Donald Trump and his comments about women, and I am in fear of my life," he said. "I'd rather put up with Putin than face Grandma Bush." * * * * * * * * * * * * Other stuff: So I found a twenty dollar bill the other day in a large public indoor area - a cafeteria/study/lounge area - at my community college. I picked it up and looked around to see if anyone reacted in any significant way, you know, like "oh crap, I just dropped that." I saw one student smile at me when he saw me pick it up, but there was no other reaction. Seeing none, I slowly walked away contemplating what to do. Keep it? Turn it in to lost and found? holler out "did any one here lose a $20 bill?" I rejected that approach because I thought there might be more than just a few hands go up. Hang around for a few minutes and see if anyone appeared to be searching for a lost $20 bill.? I chose the latter. If it had been a $50 or $100 bill, I'd have turned it in somewhere with a proviso that someone needed to name the demonination in order to get it back. If it had been a dollar bill, or a five dollar bill, or even a ten dollar bill, I'd probably just pocketed the thing without a second thought. But $20 seems like a different thing. It seems on the gray area borderline of just pick it up or try to get it back the owner, of losers weepers, finders keepers. What are the ethics of this I wonder? What should I have done? Did I do enough? I was in a hurry and didn't want to deal with it. Maybe I should give that money to one of those people who wait at the intersections of major streets asking for money. Maybe I should put it in the offering at church. At any rate, I used it to $20 to pay for a golf fee that afternoon and didn't think of it again until now. I went back to campus a couple days later to see if a student had report such a loss and no one had and neither student services or the campus police would take the $20. The campus cop told me it was just my lucky day. Perhaps I'll figure out some other way to pay it forward. * * * * * * * * * Question - Why did Bob Dylan win a Nobel Prize for Literature? "The answer, my friends, is blowin' the wind...............the answer is blowin' in the wind." * * * * * * * * * * * * * * To all the global elites, Mexican billionaires, financial special interests, cowardly Republican RINOs, Jewish bankers, the national mass media, Democrats, LGBTQs, liberals, Sanders socialists, intellectuals, and the Hillary Clinton campaign who are all conspiring to defeat Donald Trump, I'd just like to say this: thank you! thank you! thank you! * * * * * * * * * * My Art by Cassiday 2017 wall calendars are ready and if you'd like one, email me at ** * They are $20.
