Everyone should know what to expect over the next four years

To the editor:

Anyone who has some ideas about the next four years, please stand up and go to the head of the row.

We are in a real pickle and a shaky spot. But should we be surprised? After all, the first four years were full of lies and empty promises, and lots of vacations during times when President Obama was needed the most.

After all, “when you speak to one, you must speak to ten.” What a headache that would be.

Now we have no one to blame but the ones who voted that didn’t educate themselves. I wonder if they are sorry. I am so sorry for my husband and grandchildren that now have to pick up the tab.

I think I was most honked off by a survey that was taken by phone before the actual voting was to take place where the recording asked, “Are you white, black, Hispanic or other?” I always answered with “other.”

In these great United States of America, does it really matter?
