First time in life ashamed of country

The one constant I have been able to rely on, in war,in peace,in depression ,and inflation is the peaceful transition of power from on president to another. The good of the country has always taken precedence over the narrow prejudices of power. There may have been hacking of both political parties by  whom ,is conjecture and the release of hacks may have been more injurious to Clinton but for the president of the United States to suggest collusion between the Trump group and Putin is despicable. If Putin wanted to upset the election and destroy America he has succeeded with the unwitting or malicious aid of the president of the United States.

The vilified white voter of the red counties

The election of Donald Trump is directly attributable to  the media and political elite of the East and West coasts. The Ivy league oligarchy ( which I reluctantly admit I amm smeared with) has demeaned and reviled middle America as a racist, mean spirited , bible thumping, gun-toting society of rednecks. That the learned savants of Yale and Harvard in law and sociology have an intellectual lock  on all the admirable attributes of society while the ignoble savages of middle America wallow in social depravity. This attitude is reflected in The NYtimes, The Washington Post, The major media networks , the many hollywood journals, the LA times (tho Stanford gets a pass).  The problem is that these sources of talking heads talk to each other and re-enforce their uniqueness to each other. Let me suggest there is a huge world of intelligence and talent outside the coastal counties and the so called elite universities.
