Here it is, 24 hours since I drafted my last post and I know very little more than I did the prior evening.
News has not been turned on, at least while I've been home. NPR doesn't play on my XM radio. I've avoided Facebook, the newspaper and people in general. Even yesterday, I went to my secondary office where there are very few people in the building - and I shut and locked my door.
I have gotten texts here and there, so I know - or think I know - things.
I have nothing to base this on, but I think - think! - my lack of knowledge and my angst is less stressful than my reading / watching everything and my angst.
I think these last four years has proved that ignorance is bliss. All those dumb fucks seems ok with their choices.
Should, by some weird miracle, Pappy Joe pull out the presidency, it will be by the hair of our chinny chin chins. And without the Senate, he'll be forced to be a do-nothing president, though I firmly approve him doing nothing by writing 2,091 Executive Orders to by-pass those motherfuckers.
....but I'm getting ahead of myself.......and doing some wishful thinking, which I can't / shouldn't.
But IF he should win, that hair / chin situation has shown us that roughly 50% of this country is absolutely fine with being and supporting a racist, homophobic, anti-semitic, misogynistic, science-denying liar and thief.
I would kind of - but just kind of - give it to the voting public that they might not have known ALL of that in 2016, but they do now...........and it didn't matter in the slightest.
So we, can no longer say, "we're not like that as a country".............because clearly, we are.
Sure it's a blanket statement, but this is now what our country represents and how it is represented.
With or without BLOTUS at the helm, this is who we are. We've been unveiled as a country of hate. And to be fair, the haters have made me hate. It's not pretty and I'm not proud of it - but it just is.
How, or if, we come back from this perception and reality is well beyond me. If it can be rectified, it won't be in my lifetime. I don't think it can be in that amount of time. If ever.
