I voted. I’m so glad I did, because several analysts have said Ann Arbor was a potentially pivotal factor–as late as 11pm. We lost in the end, but I can at least know that I did what I could.
I’m gratified to see the good guys coming together, vowing to protect the vulnerable–because they’re gonna need it. I’m not an especially powerful person, but if I can do something to help you or someone you know who is being oppressed, bullied, terrorized…please ask. I’ll do what I can.
Duh, everything about losing two branches of government before they proceed to corrupt the third. I can’t even express the disappointment, sadness, and fear I feel. When Obama got elected, a lot of gun enthusiasts were afraid that their guns would be confiscated, and a lot of uninformed (or lied to, Thanks FOX “news”) people thought the ACA was going to murder their grandmother. Obama supporters tried to explain to those people that their fears were unfounded, and kind of silly in their unlikeliness.
But now, when Muslims, Mexicans, the LGBT community, African Americans, children, women, and everyone who isn’t alt-right says they’re afraid–the response from the Drumpf camp is akin to “Yeah, you should be. You people are in for it now.”
Watching Trevor Noah and Stephen Colbert both try to put on a brave face was…painful. It hurt to watch. I miss Mitt Romney. Hell, I miss John McCain–and he’s batshit now.
You’ve really outdone yourself this time.
If nothing else, it’ll be fun to see the memes you post when Drumpf only fulfills the campaign promises that fuck people over (legally protected bigotry, even further restrictions on abortion, the return of stop-and-frisk), not the ones that help the middle class and below (jobs).Tags: america, irks, sad
