I worked this morning and hid away all afternoon, trying to nap but with no luck in doing so. I relegated myself to just staying quiet, cuddling with the dogs and doing much deep thinking.
Tonight I caught up on social media on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I get a lot of my news blips from those places too…I’m always interested in what others find interesting in the news. Of course 99% of what I read is about Trump and his cohorts. I cannot understand how we are allowing him to continue on as President of the United States. It just makes NO sense. Every day he comes up with something new to destroy. He hops from topic to topic, and never really give anyone any idea of what his REAL policy is on any one thing. A POTUS with NO known real policy, no known “real” agenda – other than creating complete chaos across the board.
We are close to war in several places around the globe. Trump is beating the war drum, he thinks he can just do anything he wants to do. I seriously think he’s going to get us in to a war with North Korea first, and that will anger the Russians, the Chinese and others. Soon he will have most of the major dark side world powers all lined up against us. It may be a war that we lose. I know that is something the US doesn’t think can happen, but in reality it CAN happen. Right now I see no diplomatic negotiations taking place with any of our “enemies” like Russia, N. Korea, China or Iran (yeah now Iran is angry too). It’s really fucking scary. I dread the morning that we all wake up to the news that we have either attacked or been attacked by any one of the aforementioned entities. It will be a very bad day.
When will we ever get to making some decisions here in America? All we have done for the last couple of years is fight over things. Nothing seems to be getting done or resolved. Washington is locked up in partisan politics. We have a very ineffective leader. We have ineffective representation in Congress and the Senate. It’s going to take a complete change of the guard to rectify this whole situation and that’s going to be one super nasty fight. Our next mid-term elections are going to be very tell-tale. I suspect that you will see more money than ever before being poured into the political coffers of many candidates. And if we are to elect effective candidates it’s going to take a hell of a lot of real grassroots campaigning. It certainly will be interesting.
Next week, when Congress returns from their vacation, they will be faced with dealing with the national budget. If they cannot get it together then we are going to be facing a government shutdown by next Friday. This shutdown will totally be the fault of Donald J. Trump. Trump is insisting that there be $1billion for the construction of his famous wall on the Mexican border – that wall that he promised that Mexico would pay for – and if there is a government shut down I predict it will be over this issue alone. He will let our government shut down over his idiotic idea of the wall. I think he’ s THAT MUCH of an asshole.
Alrighty, that’s enough political shit for tonight. For more specific stories you can always check out my daily paper on Paper.li “Relevant Times” It gets tweeted out on my Twitter account daily, and is a composition of what’s happening on the political scene, the LGBT scene, and in the lesbian enclave of the world. It’s kind of interesting.
I am considering upgrading my WordPress account to be able to post videos here as well. You have to upgrade to a paid account to add videos. Right now I use YouTube, but I am not completely happy with that venue at the moment. Especially with some of the anti-LGBT stuff that has gone on with Youtube’s rules lately. And Instagram videos are just too limited, I use that mostly for quick pics and to follow my younger friends’ posts. I hope to have time this coming weekend to work on all of this.
