Trump derangement syndrome

In my wanderings across American Culture I have occasionally come upon people siting a condition called "Trump Derangement Syndrome". Apparently this refers to people who are so apoplectic about the President of the United States that they somehow take leave of their senses by being all... angry. Really really angry. Unreasonably angry!

Being, as I am, susceptible to these feelings of rage, alarm, and disgust at Trump and what he means about my Country, humanity, and the state of the world, I have decided to take stock.

And so I asked myself: "Self, is it wrong to get angry at evil?"

Good question.

Probably not.

And so as I leave you to go wandering some more out in Internetland I will look upon the mentions of  "Trump Derangement Syndrome" with fresh eyes. 

"Oh calm down." They are saying. "Don't you want to do evil too?"

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
