Here it is, Kiddies – Halloween!
This video is a haunted house at Universal Studios in Florida (3 minutes):
Halloween is a night when we pretend that evil has taken over in all its many forms. Of course for most of us, Halloween fun takes place within parameters so no one gets hurt. Unfortunately, reality these days is much more scary. This week in Iowa, our top two elected officials will be campaigning with a guy who attempted to overthrow our democratic government and also stole Top Secret documents.
Our top two elected officials – Senator Grassley and Governor Reynolds think that campaigning with such a disreputable person is perfectly fine. It is in reality an insult to Iowa and a message as to what the Republican Party will do with power. It is truly frightening!
