A Political Post, Because….

Today, i plan not to watch MSNBC at all until tonight when i can watch Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, and Chris Hayes.

I will not be watching the inauguration. I repeat: I WILL NOT BE WATCHING THE INAUGURATION.

Because i do not support him nor do i call him my president.

He was not supposed to be elected.

Yes, i AM going to dwell on this, because again,
he was NOT supposed to be elected.
It is clear that Hillary Clinton had the popular vote, and clear as the hand in front of our faces that DJT is a
narcissistic racist,
sexually abusive,
physically abusive,
verbally abusive,
hot tempered, mean,
vindictive, malicious ruthless monster
who lies,
who goes back on his word,
who makes fun of women for their looks,
who body shames,
who pokes fun at Disabled people,
who thinks Muslims are all terrorists,
who plans to defund Planned Parenthood and ban abortions,
who plans to go right along with all of the Republicans who plan to make deep cuts to our social safety net and healthcare system that will end up ruining the lives of real human beings, and killing us….
who plans to ban the press from the White House
who seems to have a real love for, and connection to, Russia,
who also has a very authoritarian personality,
who has said he wants to strengthen our nuclear arsenal,
who has already managed to anger several nations,
who plans to do away with the climate change agreement,
who plans to do away with everything that protects women and all marginalized groups from hate and discrimination
who plans to take away the rights of LGBTQIA people
and turn our country back to the bad Dark Ages before FDR, Lyndon Baines Johnson, and the Civil Rights Movement……
who plans to cut access to the lifesaving medicine for those with HIV/AIDS, who are now able to live because of those meds…..the list goes on and on.

………and our electoral college was supposed to be there to PROTECT us from demagogues like him!!

Didn’t happen, did it?

My Thoughts On The Current State Of Country

The following are my thoughts, written as Facebook posts, on the current state of our country, as we head towards a dark period of God knows what.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

With this dark cloud of uncertainty hanging over my head that the new government could now actually get away with gutting the benefits for elderly and disabled people, me included, i am finding it increasingly harder to enjoy or even handle everyday life.

I cannot sleep. I am getting more frequent sick stomach spells. I was so afraid this would happen.

Why do the republicans seem to hate us so much?

There has to be a way, please, to keep trump and the republicans from hurting us like this.

I do not have the spoons to get on the phone and call my state senators. It is hard for me to talk on the phone. Very hard. Especially if people talk too fast and are rude and impatient with me.

God, if you are still on the throne, please don’t let them take our only safety net we have away. I don’t want to be forced to live either on the streets or in a nursing home where i could get abused again. I love my IHSS and the in home caregiver i have. I love being able to live in my own home. Don’t i have that right? Do they not realize we are human beings??? That they are hurting real human beings????

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have just begun to fight. I can’t make phone calls, but as i have the spoons, i can write and post on the pages of our senators and representatives, and get the message out there that WE ARE HERE, we are real human beings, and we have a voice—-and it is LOUD!!!

They will NOT take our safety net away!!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am for a single payer Medicare for all, if it includes the ability for Disabled people to be able to have in home support services, like we now do on Medicaid.

They can call the new program Medicaid if they want—-either way, it should be all inclusive to cover, all medical care, vision care, dental care, in home support services, prescriptions, all of it. They can call it anything they want, just make it a single payer healthcare for all.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Note to all in our House Of Congress:

If you run for the Office of congress to work for us, this means LISTENING to us, NOT SHUTTING US OUT AND SHUTTING AND LOCKING YOUR DOOR TO US!!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I sincerely feel our country needs a whole new system of governance. The current two-party system and capitalism has failed us, miserably.

I also feel our country should be divided into provinces, like Canada is.

Rich people should be required to pay the most taxes, because they can afford it. This will provide money for infrastructure, education, college education, healthcare for all, decent, affordable housing for all, and a secure and expanded living safety net for all of those who are elderly, disabled, and veterans who fought for our country in wars that should not ever have been.
