When You Smell Something, Say or Do Something.
It’s been nine days since my last post. I have gone from the fire in my belly over the election into a semi-depression that came with a cold. Sometimes a cold is the universe’s way of telling you to slow down and rest. I think there’s some truth to that.
A constant state of tension and anger is never good for the long haul but, sometimes it’s a reality. Slowing down gives time and space to collect yourself and find the path that makes the most sense to survive what’s coming.
I’m holding onto some hope for December 19th and for the recounts being done now. It would be the greatest Christmas Miracle of all! In fact, I think drumpf would be relieved, too. He never expected this to happen and he’s said as much. He only wants attention, not responsibility. His cabinet picks are giving many of us nightmares and rightly so.
One of the things that bothers me most is the (‘ahem’) shock from some of those who voted for him. Some are upset that he’s not really going to be able to bring back all those industrial jobs in the Rust Belt. Others find it ‘horrifying’ when they hear about white kids practicing racist chants.
What the fuck did you expect?
I know, I’ve heard the empty beliefs about him having a good heart and being such a good business man he will be bringing so much back to all those who drank the Kool-Aid and voted for him. He won’t. He’s already stacking his cabinet with the Wall Street elite, and Generals…lots of Generals.
What is a narcissists strongest trait? And, you thought he cared about YOU?
I feel bad for his wife and ten-year-old and agree it’s in the child’s best interest to finish out the school year where he is but, I feel worse for NYC and the cost that comes with that decision. The cost we will all pay for.
But, it’s all about the orange buffoon so, tough tooties for the rest of us.
If you haven’t read his ‘on the record’ interview with the NY Times, I’m leaving this link for you.
His vocabulary and attention span finished growing in sixth grade. It’s pathetic. And, what’s even worse is his sixth-grade obsession with twitter. SAD!
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, we have survived some less than stellar presidents in my lifetime and long before that. I find strength in knowing the majority of us are on the right side of History here and will hold his tiny fingers to the fire.
Keep in mind, there are more threats to our democracy from the white supremacists, misogynists, and xenophobes than you might think. All of those who have been stoking the fire for years are now out and proud. But, we still have a majority. The sane majority, I like to call it, to stop the Breitbart’s and Limbaugh’s of this ugly underbelly.
As Jon Stewart said on his last show, “When you smell something, say something.”
Let that be our motto going forward.
