On The Eve of the Inauguration ...

A Scout is Helpful.

A Scout is Kind.

A Scout is Obedient.
A Scout follows the rules of his family, school, and troop. He obeys the laws of his community and country. If he thinks these rules and laws are unfair, he tries to have them changed in an orderly manner rather than disobeying them.

A Scout is Cheerful.

Here's hoping that in four years, we can hold ALL of our Presidential candidates to the same standards we expect of a Boy Scout.

Too much effort and sincerity for me to bust on you about this.....although the a-hole in me wants to.  Well done.

The "effort" was copy & paste, but the sincerity is there!

The young kid who is my sidekick at work, is a bit of a "shake it up at a costs" type. Probably voted for Trumpy, but I don't know.

Made us all laugh today with this:

"I guess we're going to find out if really matters who is president."
"You just need to go at that shit wide open, hang on, and own it." —Camp

Oh, I think we are already seeing the change. I have been turning away work for the last 2 weeks.

Not relevant to my original post.

Try this ...

Apply a 10-point scale, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, to each of the 12 attributes described in my original post and then rate both Hillary Clinton & Donald Trump on each of those attributes, based on your perception of them, and the description of each attribute.

Do the same for Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, John McCain, John Kerry, George W. Bush, Al Gore, Bob Dole, Bill Clinton, George H. Bush, etc. See how you score them.

If you really want to go crazy, add in all the candidates who ran in Presidential primaries.

When I did that, I found both Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton's scores at the bottom of my list, FAR behind the next lowest score.
