From my back door, as I face video cameras facing our house and yard, this is what I see. Until I used my new Canon SX740HS camera, I could not read the sign.

It is clear that the country is in distress.

It is clear that there are numerous people who are very much unhappy with the state of affairs, have been so for a long time, and whose opinions are not in sync with those of the majority. The majority has been toyed with by an electoral college that exists solely to keep a segment of our population under the thumb of those of us who are entitled and by tampering by forces from without. Without having the statistics under my thumb, I must say that this is what I believe.

Most of the people who live in my area are like me in my concern for a fascist tendency on our national government and by a total disregard for the true welfare of the people. We have not met the needs of the people who voted for the current régime. They are strangely disenfranchised.

The photo that I display is that of malbor’s sign, something he has placed next to his back door. I finally have proof of, perhaps, one of the reasons he hates me with such virulence. His political persuasion is the total opposite of ours. There has never been a discussion of politics. There has been discussion of politics on our part, in our back yard, something that would be possibly heard next door.

I saw signs of the political persuasion before; there was a confederate flag over a year ago which was met with concern on the part of his neighbor to the east. There has been a profusion of American flags, to the point that it is weirdly patriotic. There was also some sort of actual Trump sign, but it was not clear to me whether it was for or against.

No matter whom we choose to lead this country in the future, this disenfranchised group’s needs need to be addressed.
