Decision

***Well, after a lot of soul searching and trying to get over the disappointment of our nomination of Donald Trump - even though I think he was the worst choice of the field we had, I will have to vote for him over Hillary Clinton. I've seen so many Facebook posts outlining the flip-flops he has already started now that he has the nomination wrapped up, but I have resisted sharing them. First, because discussion now is basically futile since he can't be stopped, and secondly I realize that as much as I dislike him, trashing him only helps Hillary Clinton, and I dislike her infinitely more. Like it or not, barring the Justice Dept. actually doing the right thing and indicting her, it's going to be either her or Trump. He is the lesser of two evils, to be sure, but it is what it is.

***I find myself seeking out more and more scriptures about eternal hope, reminding myself that no matter what happens here, I have a home in heaven and all this political and social turmoil won't amount to a hill of beans in eternity.

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:38-39

***If it weren't for hoaxes, would we have any hate crimes at all? University at Albany expels students indicted in hate crime hoax.

The women grabbed national headlines — and a sympathetic tweet from Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton — after claiming that a group of 12 to 20 white men hurled racial slurs and attacked them on a CDTA bus about 1 a.m. Jan. 30 while others stood by and did nothing.
The alleged incident sparked a large on-campus rally defending women of color and the social media campaign #DefendBlackGirlsUAlbany.
Police now say there is no evidence to back up their story and that the women were the actual aggressors, according to footage captured by cameras on the bus and by witnesses. The actual victim, police said, was a 19-year-old white woman who was also a bus passenger.
The three women were indicted this week by a grand jury and arraigned for 10 misdemeanor charges, including assault, attempted assault and false reporting, along with a violation for harassment, the Times Union reported. They have pleaded not guilty.

No doubt the defense will cite "white privilege" and how these poor girls have just been kept down and had to lash out.
