truthfully speaking, i didn't like any of the candidates running for President. the only person involved in government that comes close to my way of thinking is Bernie Sanders. but i never truly thought this country would be so fucking stupid. i forget who said it first, but it's a statement that i have remembered since i was in high school.
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE IGNORANCE OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
i feel sorry for my sister and my mother. and honestly any woman in this country that actually thinks this country believes they are equals to men. it's painfully obvious that so many in this country don't think that way or choose to never believe it. the number of white women that gleefully just elected a person who brags about sexual assault is not only confusing to me but quite frankly, fucking disgusting. i wonder if these will be the same women bitching when Roe v. Wade gets overturned or when there suddenly are no women on the Supreme Court anymore. but, part of the blame deserves to be on Hillary as well. only someone in the elite of this country could actually believe that you deserve to be the President because it is your turn. this should signal the time for the entire Clinton part of the Democratic party to go away.
also, the news media, as i have told many of you for years, never tells you the truth. Ray Bradbury told an audience i was in years ago to never listen or watch the local or national news. go find the truth for yourself.
as someone who went to a black high school, i learned very quickly in life that being a racist would get me killed. it's appalling to me that so many fucking whites in this country didn't get the chance to learn that lesson. and now, they feel like they have a voice at the table since their leader just got elected. how the fuck did people actually believe that racism ended when Obama got elected? i'll be shocked if the KKK doesn't ask for a meeting at the White House at some point in the next 4 years.
lastly, i hope the people that voted for Trump do realize, you did not elect a President, you elected a King. politicians govern, kings rule. and Trump will rule, trust me. he has NEVER given two shits about the poor at anytime in his fucking life. anything coming out of his mouth about it now is complete and utter bullshit. what is even worse is the Vice President Elect. here is a man that believes women should have the rights they had in the 1800's and nothing more. and i'm sure the religious right is thrilled that he is there to push their backward ass agenda for this country. so many poor white people truly believe that a rich old white guy is going to give them the magic ticket one day. this is how people get rich you dumb fucks, taking advantage of you stupid people.
and people have the fucking gall to ask me why i don't vote. this is exactly why. i do not want to be associated with the stupid fucks who think their civic duty is to pick the lesser of two evils.
now i must figure out which pro marijuana state i am moving to or find some really cheap property in Costa Rica and never come back.
add on top of that bullshit last night, the New York Rangers lost to a Vancouver team that had lost 9 games in a row, 5-3. just one of those nights where nothing went well for the boys. they couldn't get anything going and they paid for it. they are off until the weekend.
i did see that the Sacramento Kings won again last night. that's 2 in a row now.
Smackdown was pretty good last night. it at least provided me a decent distraction from the election.
enjoy some music:
and now some of this and that:
on the DVR tonight will be Vice News Tonight, Lip Sync Battle, American Horror Story, You're The Worst, Any Given Wednesday, Total Bellas and Lucha Underground. i'll watch NXT sometime tonight on WWE Network.
i heard back on my poetry submission from Easy Street yesterday. they decided to pass on the 5 poems i sent. i did appreciate the comments on why the poems weren't accepted. that definitely will be remembered.
i wrote 5 poems this afternoon after a quick trip to the grocery store to get mom's medications. surprisingly, only 2 were about the election. i've got a stack to send out here in a few days probably.
that's all for me today. i've got to figure out what i'm going to do for health insurance when the Republicans kill Obamacare and replace it with what we used to have. especially considering i am a Type 2 diabetic now, it will be interesting.
be well. be creative. be cool. be quick to send me CASH, panties, hate mail, love letters, broken promises and dirty pennies from heaven.
peace and chicken grease...
