Ok, I admit it. I’m terribly discouraged by the events since the election.
For one thing gloating never flatters anyone and while I understand and even share in the elation that dRumpf lost the election by the same token we do no one any kindness by gloating.
For another, just as has been the case for four years now the decree to which dRumpf revels in being a scofflaw makes me beyond angry. And that people sit around twiddling their thumbs just saying, “well that’s who he is” and no one is willing to stand up to him and call him out for his behavior, or pursue the legal means of controlling him — it’s absolutely an abandonment of the government that once-had-been the United States of America.
That politicians and media sit in front of their cameras for clever soundbites decrying his steps toward a coup and no one takes his madness seriously says a lot about how important raw “power” is for people in the United States of America.
I could sit here for hours writing about the abandonment of the American Dream but the fact is few care. All the populace seem to want is an easy, untroubled, way of life that isn’t bothered by real problems. We want our sports and our entertainment, we love revealing in violence but we have forgotten what it means to actually suffer as a nation — until COVID — and dRumpf certainly has abdicated any interest in helping the suffering citizens he was once elected to serve.
It’s embarrassing. It’s frustrating. It is, AMERICA in 2020.
