New Day, Same Shit

This is the post I thought would rule the day. But as of midnight, Pacific Coast Time 11/09/16, fate casts a far different reality...

But goddamn- did we ever duck a bullet writ large!!! Hillary's hardly a prize- the same ol' warmed over shit in a pantsuit. Hillary will prove that she can be every bit as lame as any male President we ever had- just as Obama proved he could be every bit as lame as any White President.  But, it's better than the absolute MADNESS that awaited us otherwise... 

Trump didn't scare me, the fact that half of his (working class) followers naively endorsed the most obviously spoiled, billionaire con man who never worked a single day in his life, and that the other half didn't care how much he lied, long as he was... The White Man running- that's what scared the Bejesus outta yours truly! Here we are in the 21st century and (one of) the lyingest, most racist SOB's to come outta Queens, NY in a good long while is actually believed and revered by so much of heartland America. Trump's single-handedly rekindled a bridge across the centuries that reinvigorates the kind of simplistic greed, enthusiastic racism and outright stupidity that should have died well back in the sixties. And it's simply disheartening to see how much of this blatant ignorance not only remains- but is now openly celebrated...

PS- I'm writing this on 11/07/2016- I can't fathom a response should that bullet hit home.
