I had a weird fucking day. It was an “off” day of sorts; I didn’t feel like talking or interacting with anyone all damned day. I got up this morning, went out to my kitchen and made coffee. Sat on the couch, lit a cigarette and pondered what I wanted to do with the day ahead of me. Nothing. Abso-fuckin-lutley NOTHING. And I basically laid on the couch and did just that. I slept quite a lot. Watched mind-numbing television and did pretty much nothing all day. I didn’t even bother to get dressed. Stayed in my sweats and said fuck it. Why? I have no real answer to that. I think I overwhelmed myself with some deep subject reading that I did last night and fried my brain cells contemplating it’s meaning. The subject matter was a bit on the depressing side of deep as well, so perhaps it triggered my depression today. Regardless of why, it just happened, and I am okay with it. I didn’t hurt a thing by wasting the day. And it was mine to waste.
Tonight I am feeling better; reflective of my day, but in a fine enough mood. I watched the Grammy’s, which was really good. My favorite scene was Hillary Clinton reading from the “Fire & Fury” book…that was EPIC! I actually shouted so hard at the TV that I startled my dogs! It made me laugh like hell. I do hope that #45 was watching from his oversized baby crib in DC.
I also really liked the performance by U2 that was done on an outside stage within sight of the Statue of Liberty. It was a super performance, and aimed at the immigration issues we are currently experiencing with our government here in the USA. The entire show had political statements about the “Me Too” movement, immigration and equality. Those are all very top topics here in America right now.
I’m really concerned about my country. I have written extensively about my dislike for our current POTUS, but beyond him, I am just deeply worried about the direction that America seems to be headed in. We really are in a type of downward spiral, and it begs the question “just how low will America go?” in my mind.
#45 is only one of the major problems. Our Congress is another huge problem. The morality of the men serving as our representatives seems to be rotting and it’s happening more and more every day.
I am watching as people just keep saying “this too will pass” and I know we are far too deep in this cesspool of rot for this to just “pass”. People in the USA seem to think that the worst things just cannot happen here. They are blinded. It’s very scary to think about and to realize actually. There is very bad trouble brewing on every level of our federal government, and what will happen in our near future is so up in the air. I do not think it is good that the masses are being so complacent when we should be up in arms and screaming for justice.
I have many more thoughts on this, but I have to sleep because I am scheduled to work in 5 hours. I will come back to this in the next day or two.
I also have other news and other topics I am anxious to write about. So, I’ll make sure to work on my blog a lot this week.
