About Me

old. Boring. Too complacent to realize my full potential.

How hard is it

to put yourself in a self induced coma? I'm done being absolutely stressed to the point of breaking on a daily basis. I worry what is happening to this world with this insane far right ideology flying around. I never gave a rat's ass about punk ass putin, except for thinking he was a complete scumbag who thought too highly of himself. Now he's the puppeteer of this scumbag who thinks a little too highly of himself here in America. Too many white trash bigoted "Americans" are all too eager to go along with this garbage because it's easier for them to hate than it is to love. I fear Mueller's investigation is moving way too slowly, and that nothing will come of it regardless of what is proven. I'm concerned that even with a blue tsunami, the gerrymandering is too much to overcome. This country cannot last another 6 years under this crippling, stressful weight of daily horror. I'm already a socially awkward, anxiety ridden person and have tried to avoid taking medication for fear of side affects, etc. The coma thing may be too extreme, but maybe i can be partially hypnotized in the way Peter from the movie Office Space was. But on a lighter note...

I'm about to head over to the doctor to get this gauze packing taken out of this hole in my hand! Hooray!

I've been thinking...

that orange bastard ran on far right extreme ideas. Should we run a psycho candidate on the left in 2020 with ideas such as a planned parenthood on every corner, full marijuana legalization everywhere, creating a massive co-op job movement, making mega churches illegal, full national healthcare system for everyone, caps on ceo salaries and compensation, build a wall around Alabama, cut military spending by 2/3, free college for everyone, 100% support for unions, ridiculously strict gun regulations on guns, outright ban of assault weapons, free beer on Tuesdays, naked Thursdays, huge investments in car free zones and making most cities walkable or bikeable, massive investments in green energy while forcing out the use of fossil fuels and creating a gasoline powered vehicle buyback program, minimum income for all, maximum 30 hour workweek. I could keep going. But most of all, as Bill Hicks liked to say,
"It's a round world last i checked." (and having a deep understanding of that last statement.)

I'm at the point now

That if Satan were in fact real, i honestly believe that i would sell my soul in exchange for this idiotic shitshow to be ended and have Hillary Clinton (the actual president) take office as well as a super majority in both houses of Congress, and have a majority on the supreme court. Buh-lieve me. That i can tell you.

We need...

to stop the sale of all guns in the United States until we can figure out what the hell is going on. Something is going on and it's baaaaddd. It's very, very baaaaadddd. That i can tell you.

Lately I've been feeling

that this period of trumpism we find ourselves in will be regarded as a period of time in U.S. history in which we were without a president. I sincerely believe this and know I'm not the only one. Other than the damn Disney hall of presidents, there will be no reference of this guy being president. Hell, Disney may remove this jerkwad from that attraction and replace it with a large talking asterisk. History books won't even mention that god awful beast and instead speak highly of an amazing period in our history in which activists, the courts, and women (especially African American women) worked their asses off to hold our fractured nation together through sheer will to ensure we didn't fall fully into authoritarianism. I can only hope...

Anyone thought of running for office?

I've often thought of running for office knowing i have no chance of winning. I am an atheist and would proudly proclaim it during a campaign. My main issue to run on would be to make gun ownership ridiculously difficult to obtain and maintain as well as an outright ban on military style rifles. My next issue would be to lift restrictions on abortion access. Finally, i would insist that churches, especially mega churches, pay taxes. Oh, also 100% marijuana legalization. Living in northeast Houston suburbs, i might receive about 10% of the vote with this platform, but i think it would be important to put these ideas out there during a campaign. I personally don't hear this enough. Maybe 2020.

Queer Eye!

Oh my gosh! Someone posted a little while ago about the new queer eye series on Netflix. I didn't realize there was a new one. I watched the original religiously and loved it. I've just been binging it and have fallen in love with this one too! I wasn't sure how i would respond to the new crew, but they are just as awesome!!! It also makes me feel good about humanity. In this hyper partisan world, it's nice to see people accepting each other and being able to interact as we are supposed to. Who knows, maybe I'll learn to lose some of my hatred for redneck trumpers. Baby steps. We'll see...
