let me explain...

I really meant it when I left that post that I wasn't going to do this shit any more..I was so shocked, disgusted and terrified that I, for a moment, lost my fight..but it's not in me to not fight..I've fought and rebelled against EVERYTHING my entire life..I've always questioned things..When I was 13 and took catechism to become a Catholic, I nearly drove Father Cornelius insane..I questioned everything.. yeah, she was a virgin? really..don't you think she was fooling around with Joseph and because they weren't married they made up that story? I mean they would have stoned her right?.It rained 40 days and 40 nights and flooded the earth and all the animals were on one boat? yeah, I don't believe that. So?
I didn't start out being political..I turned 21(that's when you had to be 21 to vote) something like 4 days after the election..Johnson vs Goldwater..I was soo pissed..I had studied and read every paper (no internet back in them days.)and questioned everyone I knew..what do you want from the president? I was a brat and married to a GI, wanted to know what people thought about war..
In all these years I can say I have changed my mind about so many things..why? because I learned. I still read and ask questions. But you know what? Not everyone does..they have gut responses and catch phrases...they wouldn't go into surgery with a dude that never operated before..but they elect a dude that has absolutely no experience in politics for President. Fuckme.
So after I got over my initial shock dismay and horror and started seeing the great fucking memes out there..well, as Al said in the Godfather..'just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in.'...and the Biden and Barack memes helped too..so here I am...stuck in the middle with you..but I will be doing some other posts too..I'm almost done with doing the West memes cause I have just been heart broken by so many people that I thought were smart, had a soul and a conscious and voted for that fucker..so right now? I'm not to thrilled with the town of West..thank the Goddess they aren't all like that..but I am beginning to see her warts and and that may take me longer than getting over the election..

With you being ill not too long ago - I'm glad to see you are feeling better.

The world sucks - and I hope things can get turned around for your grands - they deserve much better than what we've given them so far.
