The whole thing is appalling. I was not happy when they elected Obama, but you go with it. I liked the guy, just not all of his policies and approaches.
Politics is religion. It's about a set of beliefs. It all went to hell because communications made things in your face, all the time...and Americans seem to think that if we like something/someone, we must love everything about him/her/it. If we don't like something, we must hate everything about him/her/it. Whenever we all grow up and figure out that it's simply not that way, only then can we work together. I can have differing opinions but still be compassionate. Burning dumpsters, blocking traffic and all this non-sense doesn't help in the long run. These people are pissed and so were the people who voted for Trump. What they have in common is they are all pissed...in a world of the greatest ability to communicate than any other time in recorded history, everyone feels as if they are not heard.
Humans are simply cockroaches. Most can't think beyond themselves. Not all, just some. But enough to incite hostilities from others who may just want to be left alone...like me. It's not that I don't love this country, I just don't want to live on this planet any more. I'm not supporting a visit to Mars because we'll just fuck that up, too. We, as a race, have a way of doing that.
I'm just really, really saddened by all of this...
The difference between decency and indecency is opportunity...
One could search their entire lives for the perfect drift, and it would not be a wasted life.
