Waking up to political feel "good" news?

It just doesn't happen anymore with anything generated out of the White House or Congress since the Cretin has been involved.

It is crappy news, new disgusting behavior, new depressing fodder for more RESISTANCE and fighting the pond scum. When good people are involved in the news, it is always showcasing them fighting off the newest monstrosities of this incompetent, twisted vulgarian creep inhabiting our presidential home.

There is never anything witty or humorous or even mildly pleasant to make sarcastic fun/puns. Because none of it is funny. In any way! There is no break, no respite. No freaking humanity involved.

Every single gawd blessed day, it is waking up to hideous news or crap-assed behavior from an imbalanced thug. What now? What threats? What abject stupidity? What treasonous acts?

Wrapping one's brain around the fact that this nightmare has even been allowed to happen is bad enough. Knowing that every single day new domestic attacks are being perpetrated by the Republican morons destroying things is hideous enough. But every damned news feed, social media feed, political website is littered with the visual stench of this crass idiots face in various forms of ugliness. Smug shit, scowling shit, growling shit, pouting shit, grumpy old fart shit, imperial shit, bully shit, mean assed shit, roaring shit, ORANGE shit. Never anything remotely pleasant or hopeful, visually either.

The toll is getting too, too high.

I refuse not to be informed. I refuse to play the ostrich routine.

I'm just so fucking weary of this putrid creature and his billious ilk. All of them.

End of rant.
Shaking my head.
Shit.

Deadly "virus" hitting hard and it isn't a health issue...

Nope. It is not a health issue.

It started in the pit of my stomach and has been gnawing at my life for months. Since there actually were/are multiple health issue viruses running rampant in my community and I work closely with a wide swatch of the public, I figured I was always just fighting off the latest batch. But it wasn't like any other "virus" I'd dealt with. Very different and worrisome.

Then it hit me like a ton of bricks. This, I now realize, is something much different and it is indeed scaring me.

It's a tight ball of hate like I have never felt before. Every single day of this cretin's position of power, new, fuckingunbelievable atrocities are started, suggested, threatened, put in place that continually destroy decency, compassion, humanity, the country, the earth. Every single morning noon and night he and the wretched ilk of soulless arrogant goons called the Republican Party are plotting planning and executing treacherous foulness against the people of this nation and systematically destroying the air water land of this earth.

Every waking moment.

And I recognize now that it isn't an airborne virus that makes all my food taste terrible, all my steps harder to take and all my breaths catching in my throat. It's hate.

I actually hate these men. I. hate. Them.
I've never experienced this. Ever.
Scary as hell. Numbing. Debilitating. Anger laced. Yet I, along with millions of others, keep plodding along. I can't console or nurture anyone anymore because I have no words of comfort available now. I have nothing. My nurturing nature has been silenced. It's such a vacuum of existence. So foreign and painful with no visible wounds.

And it hasn't been two months. Not two months of this monstrous, nauseating, vile agenda.

I can only grasp at straws of hope that some who haven't been infected in the same way...some who have the security of funds and some semblace of real power and not just stubborn advocacy can and will actually do something to stop this foul virus.
(Goddess, Jesus, Buddha, God, Mother Mary, Dr. Who What When Where and How...anything!!!!!)

No, it isn't a health issue.
It is a hate issue.

Women, and our tough gig today. Wear red, buy nothing, work, or not...

Wear red. Don't buy anything. If you can't take a day off work, it is totally understandable. And commendable. Mothers cannot stop. Teachers cannot stop. Nurturers cannot stop. Women DO and because of their nature, always WILL keep the world turning while other forces strive to disrupt it and them.

If you CAN make the statement, do it.

"Harm to none" has always been a driving force of the natural psyche of females. And that stance has always been used to knock us down and delegitimize our worth...to control us. Our nature is used against us in hideous ways. "They" count on it.

To make the point we must show in realistic ways just how essential we are. We must somehow make it known that we are powerful. Economically and spiritually. It's a very tough task. The balance is immensely difficult.

We have to keep the mothering, teaching and nurturing uninterrupted and secure while forcibly making the economic and business world take serious note of our value.

Frustrating gig.

Both aspects of the resistance are at force today. Both commentaries are essential. And it is women who must make the difference.

Wear red at work, make your presence visible, bring attention to your vitality and importance.

See us...or see our absence. Both must happen!!

Beyond damned, souless House OK's the potential Killing of Hibernating Animals

People Want To Shoot Hibernating Bear Families And The Government Just Voted To Let Them

"What the House did today should shock the conscience of every animal lover in America."

Mother bears hibernating with their cubs and wolves raising pups in their dens may no longer be protected from a hunter's rifle.

The lives of countless bear and wolf families are hanging in the balance today because the U.S. House of Representatives just voted to overturn a ban on cruel hunting tactics that previously protected animals on some of the most treasured wildlife refuges in America.

On 76 million acres of federal refuges in Alaska, hunters will be permitted to enter dens where vulnerable bear families are hibernating and kill them if the resolution becomes law. They will also be able to shoot entire wolf families raising young pups if the Senate and President agree with the vote.

"What the House did today should shock the conscience of every animal lover in America," Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), said on Thursday. "If the Senate and President concur, we'll see wolf families killed in their dens, bears chased down by planes or suffering for hours in barbaric steel-jawed traps or snares."
