Beside mysellf...

Today one of those days I'm losing all hope for the future.


?s=19

Anyone got something for me?

Also - I've become increasingle isolated in the past 2+ years. I know it's unhealthy, but, just so miserable, negative, and bummed out.

1. The Trump family and their involvement in government is an anomaly in the history of our Republic

Jon Meacham, Presidential Historian (and normally Republican-friendly), recently called Trump a "bad actor in the history of the Republic".

The good news is, there's only 19 months to go before Jan 20, 2021. A shorter period of time than how long's he's been in office.

We're over the hump.

3. This whole thing

is triggering me too. It feels like another mental ploy to get the public (or his base) acclimated to some kind of monarchy, and president for life.

Im doing my best to just avoid this disgusting display...take a break. The world wont go on fire while you do. Resistance is a tag team effort, not a constant marathon. It IS not good for your health to not take breaks. They are counting on us all burning out.

4. I am usually an optimist, but I hear you.

What is happening just boggles the brain.

5. Doonbeg is probably the only place in all of Ireland where Trump is not hated.

Doonbeg is a really small town and the Trump golf resort is the largest employer in an area that was in pretty bad shape economically before he came to town.

When I was there last year I got approving comments from people for my pussy hat. I was surprised that people were aware of its meaning, but believe me, they knew.

So many people when they realized you were American would tentatively ask what you thought of Trump. I always said I did not vote for him and that he turned out to be more horrible than I'd dreamed possible. Without fail, people were visibly relieved to hear that.

16. Either that, or he told the bartender:

"Hurry up, man! I wanna have it for the pic!"

And hurrying it up is how you get three inches of foam (or cream, as the Irish say) on the head of your Guinness.

9. Hey, we love you, C4P! I am in much the same boat.

I can only recommend unplugging and finding some measure of escapism for a while, give your mind a break, and find something completely arbitrary to laugh and cry about.

Besides, isn't it amazing that the Trump Boys can post Dick Pics without even dropping their pants?

12. America will get through this and we will be smarter and greater because of it

Most laws come about after people see the need for them. I think after 45 leaves new laws will be implemented to make sure this doesn't happen again.

There are still wonderful people in our government and in our country. Try remembering them when you start to get stuck on the negativity that is our current predicament.
