GoodBye 2020

It’s still difficult to find the motivation to write lately. This fucked up year 2020 has taken it’s toll on me as well. The isolation and hours of boredom, the fear of the virus and the insanity of our political culture have all stressed me in some way or another. But, I did learn to live and let live. It is what it is, so I just take it one day at a time and chill as time goes on. Eventually things will be back to some semblence of normal, although it will definitely be a “new” kind of normal for all of us.

I’ve been doing art stuff, working on the house, the shed, my living spaces and myself. I’ve never felt more confident or at peace with just being single and doing my own thing. 2020 taught me that at least. Because I didn’t grow up needing electronics to keep my attention it’s been fairly easy to be isolated and to stay busy. When I was growing up we kept ourselves busy all the time, I just had to recall some of that individualism and fortitude.

It was a solemn holiday. I did spend the Christmas holiday with my family. We’d all been isolating for so long so we could get together in a group of 5. I will probably just spend New Years’ Eve here at my place with my sweet dogs. I was thinking I could cook some good stuff up and just watch football all day! Awesome way to start off 2021! Last year I had a sad Christmas and this year it’s just been sort of empty…nothingness. I did put up outdoor lights, had an odd little silver fake tree – it actually looked cool, and did a lot of strings of lights inside, just to add some color and nice vibes to my space.

I’m so tired of politics right now…but because I am engaged in much conversation around the topic and the candidates and players I still keep abreast of everything going on. Government is in trouble in America right now, Democracy is endangered and next week is going to be off the charts.

I’ve been watching a lot of stuff on some of the recent archaeological finds around the world. It’s unbelievable how much of this planet we have NOT explored fully! From ocotpus punching fish to Viking women warrior buials. It’s something I am completely into. The whole Viking story is just fascinating to me. They have discovered two Viking hoards in Norway…unreal stuff! Gold coins and crosses, spear heads, skeletons of warriors laid out for a ceremonial burial…I can just picture it…so interesting.

I’m really watching the vaccine distribution debacle. It’s so fucked up right now with the federal government really dropping the distribution ball on us. I emailed my provider today and asked, I got a message back from him saying he knows nothing about when they’ll have them available. I may end up getting one at one of the clinics. Because the data is all much better with Moderna I am hoping to get that vaccine, it’s got a 100% effectiveness against severe covid, that’s good enough for me! My immune system could not survive an episode of covid – and it’s questionable if my lungs would either since I smoke and have for 40 years. So I am all about doing anything possible to protect myself from infection. Catching one pandemic virus in a lifetime is my limit! Covid would make TWO! So no thanks!

So the Nashville RV dude….omfg…just a PRIME example of how people can have REALLY fucked up thoughts and plans in their heads and you wouldn’t even know it if you were sitting next to them…scares ya hey? What a twisting, turning sort of story, the female voice coming from the RV before the explosion was SO FUCKING SCARY!!! I am VERY curious to know what he used as an explosive and accelerant. I bet it was a military grade material.

The CDC just estimated we will have 100,000 covid deaths in the next month, by Jan. 31, 2021. I hate it so much. I know a few people who perished, and others who have lost parents or children to this crazy virus. It’s been so devastating and sad across the country. People need to stop. Stay HOME. Isolate. Give in 6 weeks of us all doing this to the utmost of our ability and we could possibly conquer this virus. The 100K is baked in already because so many decided to travel and gather at Christmas…and New Years’ is in another day….(I’m making a note to disinfect the counter tops tonight before bed, and door handles again – I just keep doing it.)

I invested in a new bed for Christmas for myself. I got one of the Serta Hybrid iComfort beds, it’s more than insanely comfortable!! My lower back pain and left hip pain disappeared in about 3 nights of using the new bed. I feel alot better and am sleeping way better! It was cool getting a bed in a box and watching it like “grow” into a bed mattress right on the frame…so convenient! I love the thing! iComfort rocks. I did a lot of research before picking this one, I could have gotten the Purple but to me it was a waste of $1200. when I can have a comfortable sleep on the $379 deal! I have a full size bed, so I had to get it special, most people have Queen sized nowadays I guess. I gave up the bigger bed for this one because I wanted more floor space in my room. I sleep in an 18″ piece of the edge of the bed, so I don’t need a ton of sleep space, full is big enough. Mom gave me a set of awesome 100% cotton flannel sheets for the new mattress for Christmas and I put them on yesterday. They are sooo comfortable; my bed is snuggly as fuck.

I caught Jaden Smith’s movie Life in a Year…omg..what a good movie. I found it on my Amazon Prime videos list. I’m not big on romances, but that movie is worth a watch. And Youtube videos of The Tiny Chef are another hilarious thing to watch to get you laughing when you need to laugh.

As we are entering the most dangerous phase of #45’s meltdown in his bunker, we’ve got to get our thoughts wound back around this country acting with integrity. Back to some seriously core values, be progressive, stop the corruption. The insanely corrosive nature of disinformation is so bad for this country and the world. People thinking some of this wild stuff could even be possibly true makes me shake my head and wonder. Deradicalizing people we love is going to take a long time, no wake up moment is coming. We have to convince them what they are doing and believing is creating real havoc.

I sincerely hope that 2021’s pendulum swings to the side of better times for all of us.

Peace and Goodbye 2020!!!

The 2016 Mistake

We are in the midst of the complete destruction of life as we knew it. Nothing makes sense to me anymore. The America we knew and loved is DEAD. Families are fighting to the point of actually choosing sides in what could become a civil war.

Our country is being torn apart by a cult of personality being driven by a man who is solely focused on himself and making himself the idol everyone must love, worship, fight each other and kill each other for. This man would even order you to kill your own child or your mother if he deemed it good for himself. This is a very dangerous and ultimately fatal dynamic we are allowing to happen right before our eyes.

Many of those politicians that we have just elected to represent us, to make our lives better, to save our country – as well as many who continue to hold seats they did not have to defend – this time around – are nothing short of sickly devoted sycophants for this man and this man ONLY. They do not listen to the issues of their constituents nor do they even appear to remotely care about anyone except their cruel, low-educated, egotistical sickening, autocrat who controls them – every single move they make is micromanaged and ultimately control by ths one single little man.

This man’s name? Republican President Donald John Trump, the 45th president of the United States of America who was democratically elected in 2016 to govern the USA from noon Jan. 20, 2017 to noon on Jan. 20, 2021 – 4 long, arduous years of sheer, chaotic hell on the American people, our government institutions, our judicial system, the economy, the environment and anyone except his rich buddies in the top 3%.

Yep, Americans elected a man who was a failed reality TV host, a failed casino owner, a failed real estate “tycoon”, with a history of 3 marriages, 5 children with 3 wives, the 5th was on the way when he had to pay off his pornstar companion not to tell bon him. We elected a man with a long’ legal legacy of deeply corrupt, questionable and double-book businesses, many that resulted in multiple bankruptcies, hundreds of law suits against him for non-payment for work performed or for non-payment for materials supplied, multiple felony criminal charges going back to the early 1990’s for sexual misconduct ranging from sexual harassment (verbal and physical) to a physically brutal beating followed then by the outright forcible rape of a 13 yr old child – in this charge his co-defendant was Jeffrey Epstein, who, the indictment claims, he actually fought with over who would be first to rape her. Donald J. Trump then brutally beat the child out of anger and in retaliation for Epstein raping her first. THAT is a SICK PEDOPHILE! SICK!!!

THESE DISGUSTING THINGS are just SOME of the corrupt, criminal, illegal, unethical and completely immoral actions this man, Donald J. Trump, has been accused of, charged with, convicted of, or perhaps has even bought his way out of in some cases. Sources have said that he has paid off the legal system to have dropped or disappear conveniently – and we all know about him paying off porn stars, so we know it IS one of his tactics to hide his less publically desirable tracks. Even as I type this right now there are outstanding legal actions awaiting Donald’s availability to answer to; to take care of or even be tried for in a court of law – in several states actually. I am sure that the NY state Attorney General is still patiently waiting to speak with him on several cases involving some of his business entities. Even his children, Ivanka, Eric and Donald Jr. are seemingly involved in many of those cases.

I am sure that I have neglected to mention quite a bit of this man’s record, but it’s easily viewable by you – or anyone wanting to see and read it – through a search on Google. Most of this is public domain, pubically viewable knowledge and visible through the USA’s freedom of information act.

The POINT is that in 2015 America was snowed under by unconscionable lies and a (somewhat) rich man’s deception elected a man to the highest office of the land – the United States Presidency. This man, Donald J. Trump did not even garner the majority of votes, he actually slid under the fence and won through the vote of the electoral college. This is a somewhat questionable, yet huge, piece of the Presidential election system the USA utilizes.

I can’t even go into trying to explain the system here, so let me just say that I personally am not a supporting fan of the system and would love to see us do away with it. I believe that the president of our country SHOULD be selected by who receives the majority of individual citizen’s votes. I also have other things about our election system that I believe could be changed or improved to insure that every American who votes KNOWS that their vote really matters AND fully understands our electoral system, trusing it is always free, fair and secure.

In future writings on this blog I will delve into ideas that I personally have about the political system and election security of my country. I believe, after 4 years of hell in Trumpville – it’s time for the country to make some much needed changes in hopes that we can rectify things to be more transparent and more respectable in the world’s eyes AND to prevent another “Trump” from EVER doing this again to our country.

These last 4-5 years in America we have lost much honor, respect and also have sadly lost much of the well earned admiration we once held proudly on the world stage; things that we fought for, bled for, died over and fully earned through the sacrifices of our incredible patriotic men and women throughout the history of America.

The United States of America has a beautiful history, a patriotic history, albeit not without deeply troubled times and the struggles of an infant nation trying to grow into greatness. Freedom was our goal. A goal that continues to cost us on a daily basis. We can never let our guard down that our freedom be the cost of such a mistake. “A Republic…if you can keep it.” as Ben Franklin said. Seven words we much all memorize and remember every time we lift our voices, our protest signs, or our weapons in defense of our Republic.

So I say back to a great American patriot, “Mr. Franklin, we made a very costly mistake in 2016 and allowed a con man gain control of our country as well as criminal silencing control of Mr. Lincoln’s party. We must not allow him to gain control of the future of this great country. We must not.” It is time for Mr. Trump to retire and for America to remove herself from his grasp – in ALL ways. And if he is to be convicted of crimes against America, let him be punished appropriately by our lady Justice.

Mr. Trump has been voted OUT of office. He needs to pack his things and leave the White House. Whether Donald J. Trump believes it or not, HE IS NOT allowed to just remain in power for his own self-interest. He LOST the 2020 election to Mr. Joseph Biden. President elect Biden has a huge job ahead of him to right as many wrongs as possible that have appeared in the last 4 years.

WE ALL have a LOT of WORK to do!!! I’m weary as fuck, but I am also ready and willing to do whatever I can do to help right the ship called America.

The FIRST major thing we MUST deal with is the outright LIES about his fake “election fraud” that Trump has perpetrated. This election was the cleanest election the USA has EVER held. When the man in charge (Krebs) of making SURE the elections were clean TOLD us they were clean – against Trump’s false claims they were “fraudulent” he FIRED the guy! Yup, that’s what he does. If you do not pretend that Trump is God and what he says is the LAW then he FIRES your ass.

So, in 2016 we made a tragic mistake, elected a reality TV “star” (in his own warped mind) and we’ve paid dearly for this egotistical idiot who throws temper tantrums to get his way, MUST have his ego stroked HARD daily and has NO RESPECT for America or ANY of the citizens he’s SUPPOSED to represent.

Now it’s 2020. We have elected a REAL, HONEST and CLEAN man to lead our country properly, and to do it with dignity, honor and respect for our culture, our traditions and all of us citizens. He was FAIRLY elected by over 80 million people, about 8 million MORE than old fart Trump – who shouldn’t have even been ALLOWED to run in my opinion. How does anyone who was IMPEACHED get to throw his hat into the same ring he screwed the first time and run again? He didn’t even do a half-assed good job the first time! He’s failed us on pandemic response. Has put is in serious conditions ripe for foreign intervention of all kinds…HOW could ANYONE even WANT this imbecile in our White House? He’s destroyed it’s dignity already, and we would look completely stupid to give him another 4 years! No, Trumpty Dumpty needs to go home! the Kremlin has a nice room for him and Melania, his watch dog.

Are YOU better off today than you were 4 years ago because this guy was President? Haha, I know that’s a crazy question! I am certainly NOT!

Time to rest these weary eyes and stop the thoughts from running wild inside my noggin!

G’nite !
