Only on Mondays and Wednesdays

tcr! · Nov 10, 2016 at 10:51 am

What I wrote about Trump and the people who voted for him the day after the elections, I’ve been thinking about that more. Thinking about it more because I was more than annoyed when I wrote it and because I have life long friends who voted for him. And I try to self-correct as needed.

It was pretty harsh to say that people should be ashamed of themselves for voting for Trump. I know that I should be ashamed of myself for voting for Hillary, too. A friend sent me a link last night reminding me that Hillary and her minions stole the nomination from Bernie. I knew this and voted for her anyway.

It’s easier to point fingers than look at my own actions. Whatever, I can admit that. I’m not morally superior but I often act like it.

Trump is publicly horrible and Hillary is privately villainous. Which is worse? I tend to go with the obvious, the undeniable. But…shady backroom deals just might be worse in the cosmic scheme of things than someone who’s undeniably sexist.

I’m a horrible person in private and I try to be a good person in public. I would wager that a lot of us are based on how we want to appear in front of our peers. Trump has little humility in public, uses the word rapist to describe an entire race.

I’m even more outraged when people defend Trump for being horrible, saying he’s not so bad, he didn’t mean it. He’s an asshole and saying that he’s not is ridiculous to me. If someone said to me that Hillary is an asshole, I’d agree. If someone told me I was an asshole, I’d say “ya, but only on Mondays and Wednesdays.”

So anyways I’ll put my superior morals down for awhile. 😉

I don’t have a bow to wrap this up in. You might expect me to say, everybody get together and try to love on another right now. But I won’t. People are entitled to their emotions and opinions. Casting them aside too soon is bad for the soul.

Update: so Trump didn’t say that all Mexicans are rapists, just the ones that Mexico sends to the US.

When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.

Okay, so this is only slightly less bad. But still pretty bad. The bigger thought to me is why do illegal immigrants come to the US in the first place? Because US corporations hire them.

Why Trump Won

tcr! · Nov 10, 2016 at 8:54 am

Dear Democrats, Read This If You Do Not Understand Why Trump Won

Dear Democrats, Read This If You Do Not Understand Why Trump Won

Wikileaks has a 10-year record of never releasing a single falsified document, and is not connected to Russia. Everything they released were the actual e-mails of Hillary Clinton and her campaign staff. You had the opportunity to look through a window into the Hillary Clinton campaign, but you didn’t.

By ignoring the leaks, you ignored reality.

By not listening to your fellow Americans, and accusing them of being “conspiracy theorists” and trusting the corporate media, you ignored reality. By only following other liberals on social media, and only reading liberal or corporate news, once again ignoring reality. When Hillary Clinton was caught rigging the primary against Bernie Sanders, and Democrats nominated her anyway they ignored reality.

A friend sent the above to me last night. Below is how I replied to her message.

That’s a good read. I was telling Maggie earlier that Hillary shouldn’t have even been the nominee.

Our country is so fucked up that often times it feels pointless. But I just try to be the best me I can for Maggie’s sake. Her generation will be so much better than ours.

I’m replying to something you posted on November 10th, so that isn’t fair. Don’t sue me. :).

I’m wary of anyone with self-righteous indignation because I know how I get when I’m that way, which is often. I’m referring to the author of “Dear Democrats”, no one else. I’m not being as much of a smart as I sound like when I say that it is a complicated process, some might call “rigged”.

It’s not hard science, ok, but Hillary felt betrayed when Obama defeated her. She must have felt a little like America feels about Trump winning. I voted for Obama but only after he won the nomination. I am only slightly chagrined to admit that I didn’t support Obama because I didn’t think he could win. The last 8 years did wonders for my soul.
“Wonders for my soul” means that I came to support and respect Obama and felt completely rejuvenated about the spirit of liberal democrat politics.
Hillary learned how to play on a very nasty playground.
She only knows the rules she was taught. BTW, Bill Clinton is/was a 2 way tie for my favorite president.
Living in this glass house makes it very hard for me to throw too many rocks.
The whole “Hillary is crooked and nasty too” argument? PHFFFT!
Because I don’t pray, I will hope really hard that Trump is only half as bad as he sounds. If he’s only half as bad, things will be horrific. Instead of what comes after horrific.

The last couple of weeks what’s really making me nervous is the villains he’s been appointing here and there.

Me: Maybe Trump will rise to the challenge of becoming president now that enough people believe in him. People can change for the better. I mean I haven’t stolen a wheelchair since I was 19.

Maggie: Wait, you were 19? Sometimes you think you know your parents.

Trump is a horrible person

tcr! · Nov 9, 2016 at 8:55 am

Donald Trump 2016

I’m not a politician so I don’t play politics from the couch. We elect politicians so they can handle that stuff, just like judges or mayors, etc. I’m not a doctor so I don’t pretend to practice medicine kinda thing.

What I do know and make decisions on is who people are, what public image they present.

My point is… Politics aside, Trump is no one I could ever admire for simply being a good person. He’s a horrible person. He regularly says mean spirited things.

Those who voted for Trump should be ashamed of themselves. He publicly made fun of someone with disabilities — that’s not even a joke I would make in private and I make some pretty bad jokes.

And this Trump offense is one of literally hundreds. Regardless of where he stands on global warming or immigration, he lacks fundamental compassion.

Electing (let alone supporting) someone without basic human decency is pathetic. You’ve just said that who Trump is as a person is okay.

BRAVO!!! Again, I’m commenting from a couple weeks later, but I support and praise every syllable in the above bleat. Some of your finest words/sentiments. I don’t think you needed to back up on any of this.

“Ashamed of themselves.” To be sure.

I suppose if Trump continues being Trump it won’t be long before he’s impeached. That’s good news.

Outside the men’s restroom where I work. I feel like this is the moment life has been preparing me for. 🦄
