[ - ] Do you think Trump intentionally uses incorrect spelling and grammar in his tweets? At first, I thought he used “who” when “whom” was correct to save one of the 140 characters. Then, he spelled judgment “judgEment,” which wastes a character, so that can’t be the explanation. Maybe he is trying to connect to his uneducated supporters. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I am afraid of this.

I can put that belief aside and say given that all of the people at the "top" have these common characteristics, who will do the best for my me and my country using those tactics. I wish other people could do the same. All of the stuff that is coming out in emails etc exists for all campaigns, it's just a matter of if they have been exposed. [ Reply | More ]

i'm not one for conspiracy theories, but i have one of my own. (I'm a democrat, fwiw). I think that Dems were becoming too confident that Trump could not win, and there was a risk that they wouldnt feel their vote mattered and therefore wouldnt bother to vote. I think the Dems campaign strategy is to make it look as if TRump has a LOT more support than he really does, to ensure that democrats feel compelled to vote against him. Otherwise, a false threat could become a reality...Obviously it feels real to you, because you have some wackadoos in your DH's circle... [ Reply | More ]

Thanks. I actually did think it was a great selling point because his family is so great. I love them all and get along with everyone. It's also not super new, we have one dd, 11, whom they all include in everything, and she loves it and I love it for her. But now that she's old enough where I don't feel obligated to come along with her and not make everyone babysit my child for me, I've started to be able to hang back. If they go to a movie and take her, I give her money but don't feel obligated to go see Secret life of Pets, if you know what I mean. I think they all think I have some kind of secret problem, but I just do not want to spend every single day with all of them. They literally live their lives together and I think it's getting worse as time goes on. Even on vacation everyone does all the same activities with each other. [ Reply | More ]

They don't. I was the one who told you to go away for the weekend. You are suffering needlessly. I had no history of depression and had an episode of severe depression due to some extremely stressful events and it went away with effexor. I felt like I was going to die and just curled up and cried all the time. It gave me a whole new understanding of what real depression means. It is not just feeling "sad" and I have never had that real depression again. When one of my parents got sick and was going to die I immediately got back on the Effexor. I cried and felt understandably miserable but was functioning and have never had another episode of true depression.-MD mom. [ Reply | More ]
