Trying To Be Thankful

Today is Thanksgiving. But this year I’m having trouble getting into the “thankful” feeling. ┬áThe unthinkable happened. Half of US voters chose to send our country into a 4 year train wreck.

I’m getting really tired hearing Trump supporters whine that it’s not fair to call them bigots for voting for the Great Pumpkin. Really? You willingly voted for a bigot. You apparently didn’t care that a racist, misogynist, xenophobe president (with a homophobe VP) just might enact policies that reflect his fucked up views.

Green Party candidate Jill Stein is trying to get a vote recount in a few battleground states. I know it’s a hell of a long shot but I give her credit for fighting to save us all.

We may be stuck with Trump. But thank God, there are people who will NOT allow him to send us back to the 1950’s. Democrats and Independents will bring back the protest spirit of the 1960s. The media may be willing to give him a honeymoon. We will not. He does not deserve one.

You think Democrats gave Nixon a hard time? Just wait. You ain’t seen nothing yet.
