God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

I don't have any interest in arguing the merits and efficacy of the SCF Tea Party or the nebulous entity some call the GOPe.  Arguing will not change the elections in NJ, VA, or AL.

It's over except the shouting.
"Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans."  -  President Donald J Trump

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....
