Sadly aha! Only the last year . . .

Sadly, the crime rate, the violent crime rate has increased over the past year. Hmm that would correlate with the presidential campaign. The Democratic nominee has run before without this increase. The Libertarian candidate has run before without the rate increase. Yes, you know exactly where I am going with this.

The hatred spewed by another presidential candidate has inflamed and given people the confidence (?) to act out their aggressions, their frustrations, their fantasies of power over others, and I know quite well that correlation does not equal causation. But that does not take away the correlation. . .

Hate spews hate, fans the flame of hate. Love wins. Eventually.
