Happy New Year

Hi all,
Hope everyone is doing well. Just wanted to check in to let you know I am doing fine. Every day is a little easier. It's still a weird feeling to not have my husband with me because we were together for so many years. I have such a great support system . My family,especially my sister who is my rock and was there for me throughout everything and still is. Now she is going through my brother in law having  a quadruple bypass 3 weeks ago. He is recovering very well .
I have the best friends and family ever. I am really blessed . One of my very dear friends comes by with something delicious she cooks for me frequently. She is a fabulous cook. She never got married. I may have to move her in here. I made a nice circle of friends from the dog park and we all went out for dinner just before Christmas and we are going out again next week.
 My mom is doing well. She's 89 and has an apartment in my house. I am pretty much always on call since she is here with me. But she is still capable of doing most things for herself but she really has slowed down. Pauls' niece and I have become so much closer and I am so happy about that. She is a wonderful person who overcame a lot in her life.She wrote and read the eulogy which I am still waiting for her to rewrite so I can share it with you all. She is a beautiful writer and she did Uncle Paul proud. I asked her to do it because I knew it would be awesome and it was. Her brother who lives in California was very close to Paul. This hit him very hard. They spoke weekly on the phone . Now we speak or text daily. We console each other. Paul has a fraternal twin . It hit  him very hard as well as you could imagine. He has withdrawn but I try to maintain  a dialogue with him . It  hit his wife,my sister in law, hard also. They were all childhood friends. she grew up next door to Paul and his brother . Yes she married the boy next door. Ironically her brother married the girl who lived next door to them on the other side. Isn't that something? 
Anyway I want to thank everyone for all your kind words. 
Looking forward to posting something political soon.
Happy and Healthy New Year

Thank you

Thank you all for your kind words and condolences as my family struggles with the loss of our beloved Paul. We had a beautiful service for him. Many great stories and laughs as he was a smart, funny, kind, honest and brave person. He is greatly missed by so many. I shall return as I adjust to this "new normal"

Once a Community Agitator,Always a Community Agitator

Dr. Carol Swain Commentary: Barack Obama and the Evil Plan to Destroy President Trump:

As we move toward the midterm elections, former President Barack Obama is back in the news, working overtime to make himself relevant by claiming partial credit for the Trump economic growth and prosperity. We should be alarmed because of what we know about the Obama presidency and its disregard for American traditions about elections and how one treats political opponents. There is no sense of protocol or qualms about abusing power or trampling the U.S. Constitution.
Presidential protocol once meant former Presidents showed a measure of deference and respect for current officeholders. Former President Jimmy Carter, in 2007, broke this precedent when he called George W. Bush’s presidency, the “worst in history.” Until 2007, Carter was the uncontested winner of the worst modern presidency in history. But then I digress. President Obama is obsessed with President Trump, and Obama is supported by his army of paid and unpaid protesters as seen in Organizing for Action, a pro-Obama group that will not leave the president alone.
Given the corruption in the FBI and Department of Justice during the Obama years, the unprecedented use of the institutions of government against political opponents, and the never-ending Mueller investigation, it becomes more likely than not President Obama has something to hide. From the moment Donald J. Trump became a serious threat to the leftist agenda, he was targeted with Saul Alinsky’s evil strategies.
Deception, infiltration, and manipulations are at the core of the Alinsky guide for redistributing power. Just think about America, the frenetic opposition to the president and Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals,

you can take the community agitator off the streets of Chicago, but you can't take the community agitator out of the man
