June Thoughts

I don't understand the state of  politics today. As a lifelong Democrat I can honestly say that while I wouldn't have liked Kasich or some other Republican winning the presidency I would have grudgingly accepted it. Trump on the other hand is another ball of wax. He's misogynistic, narcissistic, and a liar. He's also colluded with Russia and fired anyone who won't swear allegiance to only him. Still people voted for him and still they support him calling him honest and smart. This is not true.I don't understand it. How can evangelicals support a man who talks disparagingly about women, mocked the disabled, and has married many times. He is in over his head and has done nothing but sign a few executive orders and ticked off all of our allies. He plays golf almost every weekend and hired all his family, costing tax payers millions. Our constitution has been trashed and violated almost beyond repair and none of his supporters complain.
Well, when they lose their Health Care and other benefits that they've enjoyed for years I will not feel sorry for them nor will I do anything to help them. They will be on their own.
Regarding the young man who died while in custody of the North Koreans I feel very sorry for that and I know his family is very sad. The government wants to restrict travel to North Korea and some people are against it stating that the government can't tell them where they can travel and where they can't. I feel that if they want to go to a country and break the law and get arrested, let them but don't expect the government to come to your aide if you do get in trouble. It's how I feel about people climbing mountains and rocks, going out to sea, going around barriers at low water crossings, or whatever, against the advice of experts who do it anyway, get in trouble and expect to be rescued. These rescues sometimes result in the rescuers being killed. You go against good advice, you get yourself out of the mess you made.

This is a safe place.

Wear your safety pins proudly to stand against intolerance. No pulling back on womens' rights, LGBT rights, intimidation of immigrants.

If you want to fight

Fight with your pocketbook. Don't do business with companies that supported DT, cancel your credit cards, get off their mailing lists and tell them why. Don't go see or support celebrities who supported him or watch their movies or TV shows or buy their products or music. Wherever you see injustice, racism, or cruelty to others because of their race, religion, or sexualty, stand up for them. Join organizations that support the planet and raise people up. You have a voice, use it.

Black Days Ahead

Still not over Black Tuesday of 2016. What a horrid thing to happen to the world. What happened confirms that there is no supreme being watching over us...we're all alone on this planet. Love the ones close to you because the morons who voted that narcissistic, racist, sexist troll in are not going to love you or even be kind to you. We're doomed to a dystopian world. Fun, right?

Election and other stuff

Terrible, horrible, disgusting,  numbness. Hate that people went with that pig. People I know and love did that and I will never forgive them for it. I only hope the US can weather this travesty. I'm off of social media until I work through my feelings because I am disgusted with people and I don't want to see or hear from a majority of them ever again. My immediate family is not included in this rant.
He's not my president, he's a racist butt wipe and I will do my best to not see or hear him or support him in any way shape or form...EVER! Goodbye to the land I knew and loved. And no I'm not moving out of the country! I can voice my opinion, at least for now until the jackbooted thugs take over.

Doesn't feel like September

It's September and while our temps range from the 90's for highs and the high 70's for lows and doesn't feel very fall like, at least it's not in the 100's anymore.
Went to the doctor and my tests came out pretty good. The only troublesome result showed that I'm still on the cusp for diabetes. Bummer. I watch what I eat and even got a new tread mill and use it at least 5 minutes every hour from 7am to 7pm...for the most part. Sometimes I walk 15 minutes. I have a Fitbit so I can't fudge the numbers. Most days I reach my goal but when I don't I just resolve to do better. I've been getting nosebleeds as of late, had abut 5 of them so far, so my regular doctor is sending me to an ear, nose, and throat MD to hopefully see what's up.
The election is dragging on and on and on and on. The media which used to be made up of journalist has now become 'reality television' with screaming and yelling and mostly just reporting what they think has happened instead of the facts of what happened in any given story. Sad, sad. I don't know how things will turn out but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we don't have a Brexit situation here when the dust settles.
We had a nice though quick visit with Cyndi. She moved away and came to pick up the rest of her things. Was lovely seeing her. Thank goodness for Hangouts, at least we can see her when she calls.
College football has started so my husband is happy about that. Not a lot of games in a short amount of time compared to baseball and basketball season but it's his favorite sport to watch.
Go Longhorns!
Roll Tide!

Sore Losers

We backed Hillary in 2008 and when she did not get the nomination we licked our wounds and got over it and backed Obama. I say this because I think that the Bernie Sanders backers should now do the same thing. He ran a good campaign but he lost so all of you should quit crying and get on with the work of helping Hillary beat Trump. All I hear from your losing camp is wah, wah, wah. Sheesh!

Quit being cry babies and sore losers.
