One thing about my depression its the reactivism of the media and social media of the President-Elect. If the Election season killed friendships the swearaing in is going to herald a new era of McCarthyism that even McCarthy wouldn't approve of.
In are recent article about the election the first paragraph ends with this statement :
It is impossible to react to this moment with anything less than revulsion and profound anxiety.
To get some thoughts out of the way and clear the air. Let me be honest I do not believe that the Presidency of the United States depends on my vote but the fact that so many United States citizens choose not to vote or voted for a third party candidate that my vote counted more than theirs ever could.
Now it is up to the electoral college and their vote will confirm the votes counted.
Then there is the actual President -Elect behaving immaturely on social media which further distance himself as a real prospect for running the country.
There are already people giving the opportunity a full court press release
If you look back at this past summer film Star Trek Beyond one theme was about Humanity strength in time of strife. It was the character Krall that said the War makes Humanity better.
If we, the United States of America have reached our lowest point in Humanity then let's work to make sure it is not our last.
The election and subsequent results / reaction has really screwed me up. I just do not have the energy to blog my totally random thoughts or even my planned blogging.
I have had really tried to bust out the gloom and doom, but it is really hard. I have been volunteering, donating and cleaning usually three things that will pick me up straight away.
I even spent time reading the Bulu box lid
It really took a lot to get over I even indulged in french fries which just went straight to my backside and then I went to the gym.
The election helped me "lose" a friend who randomly reached out to me but now won't email, call or text or write. This isn't because of me I realize that this person is busy in the military but its like ...what the heck?
The election also taught me who my "friends" are and it is weird given that I swear we all grew up together. They are just different people now and I value their opinion but don't take it without a pound of salt.
