The Trump Administration (Or, Another Day, Another Protest)

img_0069

 

Oh Trump, when will you learn: America hates you.  

So for the second time in a week we had to take to the streets because our country is being led by a completely insane childlike Cheeto golem.

However, like the Women’s March, I’ll say this day made me quite happy.   The Women’s March was awesome and a complete success, but what made today so awesome was that this literally happened overnight.

Yesterday word went out to have protests and in fact last night there protests inside airports all over the country!   And you thought Christmas was a crazy time to travel…

People could have stayed home today.   They could have been exhausted from the Women’s March, or the inauguration protests, and some people marched in both!  We could have had protest fatigue, but no.    People, once again, came together for what’s right and what’s good.   And I’m sure next week when Trump signs a law to…. oh who the fuck knows, he’ll probably want to kill all kittens because they get more attention than him or something…. but we will all be there to march again.

 

Trump is always talking about patriotism, and well, here it is.    We as Americans are standing up and fighting.   We are not willing to let 4 years slowly turn this country backwards until we have a chance to make it livable again.   We are fighting NOW.

Dear Donald.   You’re a joke.  Goodnight.

The Women’s March Made Me So Happy

img_0047

Now, I’m not a woman, nor am I nasty….but for the inauguration I couldn’t be any happier to be a nasty woman.

 

I decided to get to know my new city and my fellow Bostonians by attending the protest… C’mon people!   Trump is the president!  How could I just sit and do nothing?  I had to partake in the revolt!

 

And let me tell you, since the election I have felt like shit.  Getting to know the new America, the one centered on hate, fear, and discrimination has literally been causing me to be stressed, sad, and miserable for months…. BUT THEN, I SWEAR TO GOD, AMERICA ACTUALLY CAME TOGETHER.  

 

Trump did in fact bring the country together…just not in the way he would have hoped.

The Women’s March in DC alone outnumbered the inauguration… and when you combine that with not only the rest of the country, but the protests around the world: From London, England to Melbourne, Australia, we literally came together in the MILLIONS to tell Trump to fuck on off.

 

And I don’t know about any of you, but those feelings of stress, dread, and fear are now replaced with HOPE.    LOVE.    AND EXCITEMENT.

To everyone in Boston I want to say thanks for being so kind and nice to me, a random loner from Ohio who wanted to march with you guys!  And to everyone around the world who protested on inauguration day and/or the Women’s March the next day, thank you for restoring my faith in humanity.

 

For restoring my belief that the stupid and fearful can’t win.    One of my favorite quotes says:  Remember that The Empire Strikes Back is followed by Return Of The Jedi

 

For all the nerds out there I hope you’re smiling right now, and for anyone who doesn’t understand that that is an uplifting message I say…..Go watch more movies!

Republicans Are Making Me So Depressed

con

 

So, as hopefully all of you know, the republicans tried to dismantle the Ethics Committee the other day in their latest attempt to let greed and power ruin everything…..  How? is all I can ask myself.

How has this country become filled with people who support these horrible people.    Here is a question I am constantly forced to ask myself?

What exactly do Republicans want? 

So, in a Republican’s perfect world they would remove the ethics committee so nobody could investigate into their actions.  Then they would get rid of Obamacare and Medicaid, taking insurance from millions of Americans.   Then they would make abortions completely illegal.    They would ban the minimum wage from ever rising. They would legalize guns for more and more of America,  And if the hardcore die-hards get their way they would build a wall between us and Mexico, deport everyone they can find, and force Muslims to register on a Hitler-style witch hunt for “terrorists”.

WHAT WILL AMERICA LOOK LIKE AFTER THAT? 

Has anyone asked themselves that yet?

Are we trying to create some feudalistic society again?  Where half the population dies from ravishing diseases because the wealthy refuse to help them?  YES! IN MY OPINION ITS TIME FOR THE BLACK DEATH TO MAKE A COMEBACK!   Has anyone thought about how the rest of the world would look at us?   I can only imagine us destroying our relations with every other Western Nation in the world.

 

So alas, this constant shit-show that is America is making me so insanely depressed.    Just watching our government destroy our country, and half of America cheer them on… it blows my mind.

 

And no, republicans…. I’m sorry but this isn’t a perspective issue…. you’re all just fucking idiots.    All the facts in the world show it.  And apparently anything that doesn’t come from Fox News is biased Liberal media…..  Which I’m pretty sure in psychology, the ones who think EVERYONE ELSE is wrong and out to get them, are normally the ones suffering from delusion…. just pointing that one out.

So now Im sure if there are any Republicans reading this they’re probably thinking Im a left-wing nut job…so I’ll drive my point home:

~Most livable cities in the world:  NOPE.  Not on that list

http://www.economist.com/blogs/graphicdetail/2016/08/daily-chart-14

~Happiest countries in the world:  NOPE.  Not on that list

http://www.nationalgeographic.com/travel/top-10/2016-worlds-happiest-countries/

~Countries with the best work-life balance: Nope, Not there either…

https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2016/02/which-countries-have-the-best-work-life-balance/

~ Healthiest countries in the world:  …By now you should all realize, we’re not going to be on ANY of these lists….

http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2015/04/03/24-7-wall-st-healthiest-countries/70859728/

~ Greenest countries in the world:   Obviously, we didn’t make the list

http://www.businessinsider.com/most-environmentally-friendly-countries-2016-3/#has-the-environment-improved-over-the-last-fifteen-years-6

~ Safest countries in the world:   LOL….NOT US! 

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/maps-and-graphics/safest-countries-in-the-world/

 

Do you know what is so strange though?  All the Westernized, most liberal countries in the world are the ones who top the lists….. How strange, isn’t it?…. Almost as if liberal policies are the ones that work?

 

 

So republicans, please, you’re depressing me and ruining everything. Just go home and never leave your small-minded worlds ever again.

Donald Trump Is Not My President

house

Standing up and fighting for your rights to live in a free country is an extremely important thing.

Right now I’m stuck living back in my hometown in Ohio.  The trash dump, redneck, backwoods of the USA.  Everyone I work with voted for Trump.   You will see people with giant Trump signs still in their yard (one man even string Christmas lights around his so it can now be seen from space).  The democrats here are still conservative by New England standards.    Basically there are two types of people here:

1.)  Crazy Trump supporters who just can’t wait for the Muslim registry to begin

2.) White democrats who don’t actually Trump enough to stand up to him  (Life must be so easy to be a straight, white, Christian huh?)

 

But I want to make it known that Im against Trump.  Granted, my one voice may be pointless. But perhaps multiple voices can come together and make change.

house1

 

Now for any Tump supporter I ask you, why did you vote for him?   (Honestly, feel free to respond in the comments section).

With all the racist, sexist, and cruel things he has said?

With his VP being an insane homophobe?

With Steve Bannon, a complete neo-nazi, on his cabinet?

With his crazy Twitter rants that seem more fit for a spoiled 7 year old?

His financial scandals?

Russia admitting they worked with the campaign?

I genuinely don’t get it.

The only answer I have to these questions is that you people must be either racist, sexist, homophobic, afraid of all countries other than America, hateful of all religions aside from your own, or a combination of the above.

If Im wrong please feel free to let me know.  And please give me real answers, not some bullshit about “All of that being made up by the left wing media”…which seriously guys….WTF.  That excuse is so old and based on no facts at all.

So until I get any information to change my views I will stand in solidarity with the Trump protesters.  He is not my president.
