Gratitude 14November16 What’s Going On?

I’ve been watching what’s been going on in disbelief. In a week, our country has become unrecognizable. It is a tsunami of fear and anger overtaken by arrogance and entitlement. A quiet voice lost in the rage calls for peace and calm unheeded.

download-1Make no mistake, making America great again was code for making white males empowered, females subservient, Christianity the conscientious religion, and minorities enslaved.

Americans believed the dream that was sold to them. It was those colored-fountainspeoples fault their lives sucked now. Yes, build a wall. That’s right! We won’t let them in. Get them out! The media – you can’t trust them. Taxes – I’ll lower them. ACA – I’ll get rid of it. I will tell you whatever you want to hear.

“I alone can fix it.” His words. The author of The Art of the Deal pulled off the ultimate con and the American people salivated and handed over our great country like a cheap whore on her knees giving a $10. blowjob in a dirty alley.

make-america-white-1No Republican party has every campaigned in such a manner or with such disregard. And with the help and support of Wikileaks and the Russia government. No public figure has ever been given such forgiveness for their sins. Signs have popped up across America “Make America White Again.” The KKK have planned a victory parade.

Testosterone is raging in the nation’s capital, maybe they should watch and learn from Barack’s swag. I heard animages-1 interesting analogy about women and their attraction to powerful men. It makes sense given the polling. Harvard Business Review, Michael Maccoby did an article on the Narcissistic Leader. I have a prediction: Count on your president-elect to become obsessed with his approval ratings.

In an America where “grabbing a woman by the pussy” is locker room talk and not considered sexual assault, where is our safety? The fact that women elected him anyway, is even more frightening. I don’t know who I could trust if I were sexually assaulted. A white male dominated government will now decide what is best for women and our bodies.

In my state of Minnesota, I am ashamed we were featured nationally for a racial incident. In a more poignant display, fountains were marked “colored” and “white.” Penn State was targeted on email about nigger lynchings.

What’s going on? Why? You who voted for him knew. You knew when you marked your ballot. You knew when you placed your vote. And you were okay with the direction you would take our country. Maybe you felt you were secure and the repercussions would not touch you. You kept telling yourself this was the right choice.

Do you know any women who may need birth control? Do you have any young girls in your life who a boy could “grab her pussy” for fun? Do you love anyone who is not of the white race? Do you know anyone who is gay? Do you know anyone who isn’t a Christian? Do you know anyone with a mental illness — you do now — me. You have put all of us in jeopardy.

That drop in the pond that was your vote; has turned into a tsunami on distant shores.

Today I am thankful
