Re: “Defriended

I'm thinking being "defriended" isn't a shallow fraudulent friendship. It isn't a matter of surviving partisan political opinions, if it isn't obvious that Trump is mentally unbalanced and that the Republican Congress has become a threat to humankind well, it should be. This isn't a pleasant agree to disagree, let bygones be bygones, it is what it is moment. It is what you make it and right now it's a disaster!

Re: “Defriended

Your narrative hit me hard. Some of the once heavy buckets I carried are now very light. The bottoms didn't fall out, but very large holes did appear. I will tilt them to keep a hopeful bit of sand inside. I think some of my friends who voted for slumpty dumpty are feeling guilty at this point.

Re: “Defriended

What a drama queen, is Mr. Cope!

I had people under my own roof who voted for a different presidential candidate than I did. We discussed politics leading up to November 8th. They had their ideas, I had mine; I don't know if anybody's mind was changed as a result of our sometimes "lively" discussions.

On November 9th, we were all still friends!

If you were "defriended" by somebody because of how you voted - you are better off for it! What kind of shallow fraudulent friendship is it, if it won't survive differences in partisan political opinions?!!

Re: “Fear Full

I'm a little skeptical about MLK Jr. being a Republican, but otherwise I agree with Hope1's assessment of the situation. It's pretty obvious to any non-partisan observer, that the Democrats have a long history of courting the poor with promises of freebies. (And the better-off are always leery of that, because SOMEBODY - perhaps our great-great grandkids - will have to pay for it at some point.)

I bet it's just as beautiful today in St. Croix, as it was a year ago, despite the change in administration!

Cheers!

Re: “Not My Values

Yes, thank goodness we live in a country that provides clean tap water as well as safety and security to all of its citizens and whose free and open elections are completely above reproach. It would be shameful to take those things for granted.

Re: “Fear Full

Funny how the Democrats get a pass on all the anti civil rights they subjected minorities to...educate yourselves on the atrocities of the left wing until they figured out they could control minorities by giving them free stuff so they could acquire their votes....
Republicans like Martin Luther King , bet you didn't know he was Repub, knew better than to get into bed with the democrats. He knew they would be kept down for generations and its coming true.
Obama lied and coddled you into submission, you will belive anything spouting from a dems mouth now. He did you no favors.
You might not like Trump, but he's yet to give you a reason to bash him. Let's see where we are in a year or two then judge the man as president. I did for Obama , I kept hoping for change.

Re: “Fear Full

Hi Zach, Thanks for picking my home, St. Croix, to celebrate your 10th anniversary last August. St. Croix has been my home for almost 20 years. We are a wonderful community of multiple ethnic groups. The mood toward national politics is now trending toward just wanting to get away from all the "sound and fury signifying nothing" (Macbeth Act V, Scene V). Of course we have more than our share of crazy politics here, but at least we can go down to one of our many beaches and relax by the waves. As a freelance photographer for The Virgin Islands Daily News, I am able to attend events and functions throughout St. Croix. My observation is that the majority of people living here are very unhappy with the current administration. I hope you will visit St. Croix again. Cheers, Linda Morland
