A little knowledge can’t hurt…

Wyoming and the deep South are home to the most ardent DT supporters (check out  Nate Silver’s fivethirtyeight.com chart, state by state.

What do they put in their drinking water?

I’m happy to report that Hawaii’s residents are the most opposed. Who’s surprised? Lush islands with perfect weather must help.

I visited the Big Island for the first time last December. I’ll return to kind “Alohas” this year.

Meanwhile,  many Americans — including this mean-spirited, incompetent president — listen to Fox News, a make-believe news network.

The 2017 annual Annenberg Constitution Day Civics Survey (University of Pennsylvania) points out how “poorly informed” we are about the supreme law of the land.

It’s cruelly ironic that “more than half of Americans (53 percent) incorrectly think it is accurate to say that immigrants who are here illegally do not have any rights under the U.S. Constitution.”

“More than a third of those surveyed (37 percent) can’t name any of the rights guaranteed under the First Amendment?”

Uh, where are they getting their information?

Did you hear that Fox & Friends host purport, “These aren’t OUR kids. They don’t live in Idaho or Texas.” So we inject them with psychiatric drugs?  Detain them in cages?

What’s happened to empathy? Fortunately for my psyche, I still believe that the great majority of humans can put themselves in another person’s shoes.

I’m glad that more Americans — shown by the state by state graph above — are rejecting this worst president’s path. At the same time, his road to destruction forges ahead.

Yoga class, here I come!
