The Best Lack All Conviction, While The Worst Are Filled With A Passionate Intensity [Nov. 9th, 2016|02:20 pm]

9 November 2016 (a date that will live in infamy)

This is a fucking nightmare.

Trump, the apricot troll-like homunculus, won the fucking election.

I note that he won on the anniversary of Kristallnacht, which is grimly significant.

I had hoped that his followers would be busy fucking their sisters, tying nooses, crafting flammable crosses, and standing out in the back yard waiting for the Rapture, but they all turned out.

My wife points out that last time, the country actually voted for a black man rather than elect a woman, no matter how qualified she might be, and that you can’t spell “President” without “penis”.

This is a fucking nightmare.

24 hours ago, I was sure that Secretary Clinton would be our 45th president.

12 hours ago, I was sure that the world markets would crater today. (The Nikkei did drop over 5%, but at this writing both the European and American bourses are sharply up.

Clearly I'm rubbish at prognostication. So maybe my first fears of unmitigated disaster are also incorrect.

One thing I do know for sure: on January 20, he will be our president, not their candidate. His successes will be our nation's successes. I do not hope for all of his stated goals to be achieved, but there are some that everyone can agree on - rebuilding our infrastructure, for example. I'm an American first and a partisan Democrat second. I have no choice but to wish him well.

I keep hearing, "This is not who we are."

I beg to differ; this is exactly who we are.

The next four years are going to make "1984" look like a blissfully silly rom-com.

A Reminder :

For better or (most likely) worse, donald trump IS MOST DEFINITELY YOUR PRESIDENT ! .

For you to claim otherwise means you're a very BAD AMERICAN .

Suck it up and work to improve things, don't whine and cry like the tea bagger retards do .
