Not at all. And I have failed to be able to insulate myself from Trumpism, too. My wife's illness is such now that, together with my vision problems, I am pretty much retired against my will. I mean, even if my eyes weren't going bad, it's damn hard to get much work because Karen needs a lot more supervision now than she did ten years ago. I can't leave town for more than a day, really.
So the little I pull in from DVD sales is all I am making now, together with Karen's VA money. I am three years away from collecting Social Security, and the only other income I am making is part of the monthly rent from one tenant. And that has been iffy for the last six months because of tenant problems. I've actually lost money a few months. And if the economy tanks, I'll lose even more if my current tenant gets screwed over.
So we are pretty vulnerable and have been for the last two or three years.
Sorry, we cannot afford another Trump term in the White House, there is no way in Hell we can survive it. And we're nowhere near as vulnerable as a lot of others.
