This was a post in the New York Times comments today. I have to agree with Michelle from California. Scary and sad. Michelle California 19 minutes ago Mr Comey states that Trump doesn't represent American values and he should not be President because of his moral failings. Unfortunately, he does represent American values, only our worst values/traits which are our love of celebrity and money, our complacency and ignorance concerning politics and the rest of the world, and mainly, our racism and demonization of people who are not white Christians. Even though Trump is hiding his criminality, he is not hiding his character. Sixty-three million people voted for him because of the aforementioned values which is the truly frightening part of the Trump debacle.

Nailed. Not that all our spoutings about USian politics make any difference. I think we need to clean up our own Canadian pols.

Dear Betty, yes, our worst traits. But we must admit that many feel this way. What can we do to change this? That's the question for me. Peace.

Write to the New York Times and everywhere else you can think of Dee - you write so well! I feel better for doing it since it about all I can do. Take care, bb

Hi Wise - You never know if words will make a difference Wise - surely you, of all people, know that words can and do sometimes make a difference. Years ago I wrote to Madeline Albright who always stated "the US is the greatest country in the world!!" - I reminded her that most of us thought OUR country was the best in the world and I certainly did not think her adopted country was that. I have never heard her say it again! Who knows, maybe she heard me? take care, bb
