Quotable

I get up before anyone else in my household, not because sleep has deserted me in my advancing years, but because an intense eagerness to live draws me from my bed. In the same way, I drop off every night with a kind of secret satisfaction as I think of the day to come, even if it is likely to be a dark one; for tomorrow is the future and tomorrow contains the whole of that which is possible.

I heard him say “grab them by the pussy” and I thought – well that is over. We won’t hear from him anymore. Then I saw him stalk Hillary on the stage like the bully predator he is and I thought – well now it is over.

Then I woke up the morning after and Michael told me that he won and I crumpled to the floor. All of the fear that ran through my body. Concern for my friends and family. How did this happen? Didn’t they know he was an empty can rattling – spewing hatred and lies? Gaslighting the country all the way to the White House.

I’ve tried to understand how anyone I knew and loved could even for a minute entertain this clowns bullshit. I have struggled. I heard JOBS, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT, BENGHAZI, and even a few – HE TELLS IT LIKE IT IS.

Well,  now please allow me to tell you like it is. You voted for a NAZI; maybe you didn’t realize it then. But you damn sure should know it now. If you can continue to support this deranged orange wannabe dictator, then I am done. We share VERY different values. I will hold the memories that I have of our relationship dear, but I am fucking done. Humans are dying because they are not WHITE. Breathe that in for a moment. Humans are dying because they don’t worship the same fictional character. Gnaw on that for a moment. Humans are being killed merely because of the bathroom they use. THE FUCKING BATHROOM.

You may be able to live with that by any measure – but I can not. I will not. I don’t wish you ill; I don’t hate you. But if you can continue to support anything this man says or does – you are doing it without me in your life.

I am not so bold as to believe that I would even make a difference in your decision to stop supporting that disheveled walking adult diaper but I feel better saying it out loud.

Just know if you ever need anything from me – all you are going to get is THOUGHTS & PRAYERS.

Does anyone else feel like Elon Musk should have been the lead in “Why Him?” or at the very least Franco’s older brother. “They hate us cause they ain’t us.” Now, I am not typically a Kool-Aid drinker – but if you’ve ever ridden in a Tesla or lucky you — DRIVEN a Tesla — you would know why the haters are running scared. Take a full-EV like a Fiat 500e and multiply that by 1000 and you have it. Take off like a rocket sled – get off the line quicker than any ICE on the market, seat up to seven grown ass people. Can we stop hating on Tesla because of the cost, instead of bashing Tesla for being expensive how about you take your complaint to Detroit? Let me help “Dear Shitty Car Makers; Tesla is dope as fuck; please get with the program so I can trade in my ICE for good. Is Elon bonkers? Yes, but as you know – all the best people are.

The United States celebrates their independence from British rule like they just won that fight yesterday. It is a bit like some washed up high school quarterback thinking he is still the shit because of that winning touchdown 30 years ago.

all of this time the story of the Devil and Hell got twisted around. What if Lucifer were not the evil one but the WARDEN of prison in which evil is contained? A favourite angel of the big G, so honest and good that he was chosen to protect the flock from all the nasty women, liberals and immigrants. Wouldn’t the good christians want to buy him a cup of coffee and a doughnut? Instead, they blame Mr Morningstar for our evil liberal ways.
