The people have spoken, and so it is done. Thank God.

This election — 16 grueling months of back biting, race baiting, name calling, dirt digging (and that was just the press) — is over.

I am kicking up my heels, sipping a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon and celebrating up a storm. No longer will I have to listen to the minutia that talking faces on CNN, FOX, CNBC, etc have been spewing minute by minute.

Television programming will be politically free (for a time).

And finally, the tabloids will be silenced (also for a time).

Now the media can focus on news, real news, and leave opinions, however thinly veiled, out of the picture — I’m looking at you, New York Post and New York Daily News.

I wish I could predict how well Donald Trump will do in leading this country for the next four years, but prognostication is not one of my strong suits, so I guess I will have to pray, leave it up to the universe, and hopw we all — the “depolorables” and the “haters” included — live through it.

Good, bad, or indifferent, I am at least sure of the following:

• This election was one for the books.

• The sun will come out tomorrow.

• Taxes will not be going down any time soon — a country can’t owe what we owe without raising them somewhere.

• You cannot trust the media, the FBI, or anyone else to be non-partisan.

• The “One Percent” will still have their 100-percent loopholes.

Not for Nuthin™ but Nobel Laureate Bob Dylan wasn’t kidding when he sang “the times they are a changin’.”

Hey there is always 2020 to look forward to. Good luck, America.

The people have spoken. There's dancing in the streets. Now everybody sing.... "Ding Dong the witch is dead."
Crooked Hillary the Liar Lost... It's a great day for America.

Ed from BB says:
60 million idiots.

"Nobody ever went bankrupt underestimating the intelligence of the American people."

Corrolary:
"Nobody ever went broken overestimating the stupidity of the American people."

Yussie from Brighton Beach says:
This was America's resounding rejection of the Obummer presidency. He was the worst president ever. He even made Carter look good. Electing her would have given the U.S. four more years of him. Sixty million intelligent voters saved America.
