The Town Scryer is a mixed bag of humor, socio-political observations and ephemera from the perspective of a eclectic Pagan veteran of the counter-culture.

A Few Words For Donald Trump and Ilk

      Barack Obama and mother. Hawaii, circa 1964.

     1964. That is the same year the Civil Rights Act passed. Before that the fiction of "Separate but equal" still prevailed in the American South-East. Blacks had to use separate drinking fountains and swimming pools and go to different schools than white children. Can you even begin to imagine what it was like for a Caucasian woman raising a mixed-race son alone in America any state? Can you imagine what it was like to grow up in that world as a mixed race child?

    I grew up in those years and I was proud of the progress my country made until all of you racist peckerwoods came along with your thinly disguised longing for "them knowing their place" dressed up as a bullshit demand to see another copy of the birth certificate of the President of your country.

   Now at long last, will you shut the fuck up?

   While he is a far cry from the President I hoped for, you make me ashamed to be an American.

   Be seeing you.
