Former president Donald Trump opened up a can of worms when he refused to accept the election results in his second bid for the presidency. His inability to accept the fact that he lost by more than seven million popular votes caused millions of Americans to question our democratic system of election.

Oh, where to begin, Ohio! Thanks to a gerrymandered state, we get to enjoy basically a total Republican-run state government.

All these brave young men were missing legs and arms and had head injuries and more. It made me think of the selfish individuals that want to take to their knees protesting. (What a shame.)
A huge thanks to the “grandmother” who found my wallet in the parking lot of Menchie’s. I knew I lost it but had no idea where.
