I think I’ve been in denial about the reality of our state of affairs in our country. Yikes. Seriously, what ever progress we thought we had made by electing Obama we are clearly heading in the other direction.
Sure Obama already had us in eight wars, we lost Habeus Corpus, whatever that is, we tortured some “folks”, which sounds more folksy than torture-eey. And the Democrats and Republicans are pretty much the same game in town cuz no one represents me!
Debbie Wasserman Shultz represents her own special interests, Donna Brazil doesn’t listen to her constiuency, Tim Kaine is cool with right to work and don’t you ever forget that. Nancy Pelosi is sooooo last century, Chuck Shumer pretends he cares and pretty much does what the corporation want him to do and don’t get me started on Cory Booker. He had the chance to stand up for the middle class and struggling class to vote for access to pharmaceutical from Canada and he didn’t. He is no better than Ted Cruz. Oh wait Ted Cruz actually voted for the amendment that Bernie Sanders also voted in support.
It’s officially 2017 and I am in no mood to see or speak to anyone except my dog “Brownie”. A lot of people think I spent my New Year’s at a Hollywood party making out with a movie star but instead I stayed home sick.
Sick of everything. Things got so bleak I brought in the New Year watching CNN. “Brownie” loves Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin New Year’s Eve tomfoolery. And now what? I’ve got an empty stomach cuz of the flu. I cannot take one more episode of “Game of Thrones”. I got so desperate I even started watching “Girls”and then I realized I wanted them all killed off in season one.
I no longer feel broken. I have gathered my thoughts.
Holy Shit Batman did you hear who is going to be the next President of the United States of America? Well here’s your first clue: you loved him in his hit reality show series on NBC “The Apprentice”.
If you guessed “Tiny Hands” Donald Trump than you are correct. Donald Trump is irresistible and that is troubling. Seriously I have bruises on my arms because I keep pinching myself trying to wake myself from this nightmare. And listen I’m not for the lesser of two evils or care that Hillary Rodham Clinton lost. I am having a hard time understanding how some people cried. Some people are still crying. I want to punch something. (I don’t cuz I’m a wimp who is adverse to creating unnecessary pain.)
I wonder what the 41% of those Americans who didn’t vote feel? I like to think the people who didn’t vote just couldn’t stomach exerting any amount of effort for either candidate and decided to stay home with their family putting those finishing touches on their bomb shelter. .
I know there are thousands and thousands of people who are stunned by the election results. I was not prepared at all. I wasn’t overly confident. I mean I was just hoping Jill Stein would somehow make progress. Trump is about to speak at his election headquarters. Right now Trump has 257 Electoral Votes and Hillary has 215!
11:50 pm and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has called Donald Trump and conceded. He is about to speak to the United States and I’m perplexed. Oh there’s Michael Pence strutting across the stage with his family and boy that fellar is next in line to become president. wow.
“This is a historic night and the American people have spoken and elected a new champion.”
Pence looks pretty scared and shocked as he looks into the crowd wearing “Make America Great Again” red caps chanting “USA, USA, USA”.
It is my high honor and distinct privilege ‘introduce the President Elect of the United States of America Donald Trump.
Good night America.
In just a few more days it will be official who our next Commender in Chief will be.
It looks pretty evident from where I’m standing in California that it will be a mixed bag
of results. Seriously, who is going to go the polls to vote for these two horrific human “beans”? One has a serious personality disorder and the other one has a mental disorder including war hawkish tendencies. But on the bright side they’re both pathological liars. What could possibly go wrong in the next four years?
Good luck America. While corporate interests continue to override your American dream both candidates have pledged to kick someone’s ass cuz who needs a “jobs program” when we can have interventionist wars throughout the world? And we can make it into a reality show entitled “America: We Kick Ass!” (Just ask any Native American.)
I’m sitting watching the entire Republican Party slowly implode. Hooray! Every man, woman and “pussy” for themselves during this election. Donald Trump has made this election so painful and humiliating for every American and it is only going to get worse no matter what the outcome.
Can we all stop pretending that Donald Trump, “The Great White Hope”, isn’t exactly the man he’s always boasted and bragged that he was? All you have to do is watch Howard Stern and watch the biggest Republican Presidential Nominee train-wreck provide substantial evidence how his misogynistic brain works 24/7.
So I wonder when God started hating the Republicans? Oh and when did he start hating the Democrats? Come on, God hates America. Just look at our presidential candidates. Do you really need more proof God hates America?
Vote JILL STEIN!
Here we are less than two months away from the presidentia election and Draft Dodging Donald is somehow exposed as the worse “human bean”– cuz he’s recorded saying apparent vulgarities such as “grabbing pussy” and “on it like a bitch”.
It wasn’t his hateful accusations about Muslims, or indictments against Mexicans or how there are too many “Pigs, slobs and dogs” aka unattractive bitches. What really turned up the heat on the Trump campaign is his recorded disregard for women and disrespectful boastfulness that he likes to call “locker room talk”. Are we really surprised?
Then there’s the newest installment of Wikleaks highlighting even more disturbing details regarding unethical practices and a racist culture inside the Clinton Campaign. Some will say, “no one is perfect” but holy crap the level of corruption Clinton’s Campaign apparently is well versed on bending the rules to play the game and win.
After watching tonight’s debate am I suppose to feel good about the direction our country is headed because I definitely don’t feel good.
Neither candidate can provide the type of leadership our country deserves. Trump and Hillary are both corporatists. They’re loyal to corporations not to people.
The only future these two candidates are able to provide will be more wars, more financial corruption and more enslavement to low earning jobs which will exploit the working class brown people.
I’m voting for Dr. Jill Stein. I know there are people that say, “Voting third party is irresponsible and dangerous”.
My friend or amigo let me delicately state: You have been fully indoctrinated by corporate America. You have swallowed their propaganda and you continue to justify your anti third party argument believing Hillary Clinton is the only solution and Donald Trump will wreck our country. You are –what I refer to as–a delusional pragmatist. Hillary Clinton is not a leader. She doesn’t defend or protect the working class as a matter of fact she is a war profiteer and has a pretty snug relationship with Wall Street. Trump is no better and just based on his temperament he is a certifiable “mental case”.
This Presidential Election we should come together and support Dr. Jill Stein. If not now? When?
Just finished watching the first debate and I got to say that it still is neck and neck. Who watched the debate tonight and said, “Well I thought I was going to vote for Donald but now that I really was able to watch the debate and reflect upon each candidates well rehearsed responses…I am totally voting for Hillary.”
Seriously you and I both know that no one changed their minds tonight. No one. If you watched the debate nothing surprised you. We all tuned in because we were hoping to see a train wreck aka Donald Trump. Also we all were relieved that Hillary didn’t have a coughing fit or faint.
Donald never provided a clear vision for a better America nor does he have a jobs program. Hillary on the other hand managed to appear as cool as a cucumber even when she faced Trump’s accusation about NAFTA being a failure.
“Donald I know you live in your own reality but” is the best line of the night but Donald really held Hillary’s feet to the fire when it came to screwing up things for 30 years and NAFTA fucked America.
By the conclusion of the debate I know I just felt worn out and relieved something awkward didn’t occur. So we have that going for us America. Only two more debates
Second presidential debate (Sun, Oct. 9)
Third presidential debate (Wed, Oct. 19)
I still cannot tell you exactly what either candidate stands for because I’m with Jill Stein. I’m voting third party because neither one of those millionaires represent me or even begin to speak to the needs of the regular working woman.
Dr. Jill Stein should be onstage during the debates because only then will the voice of the people be heard.
Finally, I couldn’t help but adore what Melania wore. No one wears a zipper dress better than Mrs. Trump. I don’t care she’s foreign born; she loves Donald and someone has to. Am I right America. Ladies? Pigs, slobs, dogs?
Today we witnessed Hillary Clinton appearing to fall ill suddenly. This has been an ongoing issue for some time now. At first, many of us viewed these type of observations as a kind of misogyny
mi·sog·y·ny – məˈsäjənē noun
dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against women.
“she felt she was struggling against thinly disguised misogyny”
Every time there has been some sort of headline pointing out Hillary Clinton’s coughing attack or dazed look in her eyes or her laughter its hared to ignore that no one ever seemed very concerned about the mental wellness of George W. Bush.

Fast forward to today is the country really prepared for President Tim Kaine? You know he is next in command IF something happens to Hillary Clinton. And I don’t like him or what he has to offer. He is a corporate man through and through and continues to do the bidding of his corporate masters.
I teach high school English and we are already back to school. What the flip! It is August. We’re not suppose to be back in the classroom; we’re suppose to be at the beach or swimming in a pool or hanging out with friends and sipping cool refreshing drinks wearing sunblock and large hats. It is the best part of the summer. The hottest time of year means NO SCHOOL!
Wrong. I have already worked my first week of school. Met over 180 students this week and I am exhausted.
The first week of school the kids are pretty sedate. I think it’s just because they’re stunned they are being forced to sit in rows and try to stay focused while learning about anything cuz its August. There are one or two kids in each class that seem like the already hate me. So I must be doing something right.
Do you want to know why schools all over the United States are beginning in August? Please select the best answer:
A. Parents want their children to start school in August.
B. Students want to start school early. Some students want to get rid of summer vacation altogether.
C. Teachers want to start school early and want over 40 students in each class.
D. School administrators decided it would be better for testing especially for Advanced Placement exams.
*If you selected “D” as your answer you are correct because we all know how important taking tests are in life. There is probably evidence that proves stealing children’s summer memories away from them and forcing them to sit in classrooms that do not have air conditioning must be not only good for the student but so wonderful for the teacher. (I know I always learn better when I am sweating and my thighs stick to my chair.)
Only 177 school days to go…
