I was talking to a friend the other day, and he said Donald Trump is doing a “great job”, to which I replied, “In what fictional universe?” I get it, a lot of people voted for Trump because they hated Hillary Clinton and he was an outsider candidate. I was extremely disappointed in the election outcome, but he won it fair-and-square (well, at the time I thought it was fair-and-square) and I gave him the benefit of the doubt. In the last year and a half it has been a total shit-storm; Charlottesville, revolving communication directors, immigration fiascoes, foreign relations nightmares, trade wars. If you voted for Trump as an instrument of change, I didn’t agree with it but at least I understood. But if after 18 months in you still think he is doing a “great job”, then I’m sorry, that’s just plain stupidity. You live in a world of “alternate truths” and “alternate facts” that I just can’t understand. But then again, there are reasons for laws against cousins marrying.
The level of enthusiasm of your dogs first thing in the morning is inversely proportional to your own.
It never fails to surprise me how people who claim to be so virtuous are usually the ones with the most skeletons in their closet. I hate it when people feel it is OK to sell their integrity for political expediency.
While I usually think the title of “King Geek” is mine, today I acquiesce and offer that honorific to someone who looked past a shattered body and saw the universe: Stephen Hawking. Rest in peace, Stephen, the world is a better place for me and mine because of you.
I woke up from the worst dream this morning. I dreamt I was trapped in the back of a limo with Donald Trump, Ivanka and her two little rugrats. Ivanka wasn’t too bad, but she was struggling to keep Donald and the other 2 brats in line. What a nightmare!
I got to lay off the after dinner coffee!
As I stare out my window at a dreary, chilly Saturday morning, I think this might be a good day to relax with my journal, a cup of coffee and a nice warm fire. In other words, it is a good day just to “be”.
