I can respect that. I was just hoping to have a little dialogue with those
whom may have been interested in stating an opinion. Generally, if there is
a post I am not interested in or can't reply to, I usually delete or do not
respond. In general think I the election has turned out to be a debacle, at
least it seems that way and I found it to be interesting. Also the
Presidential election occurs every 4 years, maybe I'm the problem, perhaps
my thinking and logic is flawed. In any event, I hope I receive a full
narrator pardon for my error in judgement.
