So – that just happened. That really, really happened, didn’t it? Go figure. Amazing. Part of me says, “I don’t believe it…I can’t believe it…” But, you know what? The deeper, darker, cynical, and completely honest part of myself says, “Of course this happened. It was practically foretold…you could have bet money on this and won a fucking mint.”

This is why I have little respect for, or trust in, most people. This is why I have few acquaintances and even fewer friends. I read people like books – I meet people, size them up, pull them apart and pick through their guts. I listen to what people say, but not necessarily with my ears…I’m more inclined to use my eyes. I read between lines and observe body language. I follow patterns. I can read a room the moment I set foot in it – and that’s why I prefer being outdoors more often than not. The negativity of others is palpable and stifling. Phony smiles are all to obvious. Fake people with dead, botoxed, plastic faces nauseate me – but me being honest and saying that is considered “judgemental.”

The result of this presidential election is just another example of how hate-filled, ignorant, irrational, and psychotic people really are. This is the result of people being insanely fucked in the head simply because a Black man was in the White House for eight years. I’ve seen, first-hand and up-close, the sheer evil people are capable of doing to others. I’ve seen people’s lives destroyed from the spiteful actions of selfish, self-absorbed people who couldn’t put honesty and honor before the false front of a family name or legacy.

I can safely say that my conscience is clear…I cast my vote, even though it didn’t go the way I’d hoped. I have always done my best to be part of the solution, not part of the problem – and that will never cease. I never made plans to move to Canada, because there’s no need. I was born in this fucking country – that makes it mine. I’ll fight like hell for my little piece of quiet. Don’t bother me, and I won’t bother you. Come at me with your ignorant shit, and I’ll rip your fucking face off. It’s that gawddamned simple, for me.

Like me? Great. Hate my guts? I don’t give a shit. Assume what you wish – you will always be wrong. If you want to know me, ask me something real. If you want to be ignorant or rhetorical, then don’t waste my time. I’m going to be busy…it’s going to be a long four years, and I have much to get done. Time to get that armour on and wade back into the fray.

    I love your voice. I really, really do. In a platonic way, of course. But still. Love.

    I totally feel you! This is my rant as well. I am disgusted at the phoney smiley folks out there, but I tell myself that I should have known. Their amount of hatred is unbelievable. Deplorable!! It’s going to be a real long four years.

    Here in England we watch aghast, it is a bit like here. We want a voice a democracy, but have to suck it up if it turns out to be another answer, different than what we expect. But I think you are right the awful truth is people voted because they were against B Obama a black face in a bitterly prejudiced country. My opinion and maybe not worth much but you have it. Barack had he been allowed to do the things he wanted could and should have been going down in history as a giant amongst men. But like we have to here the people have spoken now we have to shut up, suck it up and support where we can. I hope those around hold on to the strings and guide well. If everything happens for a reason then who are we (the minority when the votes were counted) to say, good may come from the change the unseen. Thank you for your blood and guts post. πŸ˜‡ just an English voice in the background.

    I was having this same chat earlier today. And we were wondering the wisdom of hoping the new presidency crashes and burns. But thinking Americans who still can’t get their heads around the outrageous fact that Trump has been elected, can take some comfort in Richard Nixon. Yes. Tricky Dicky himself. Millions wanted Nixon to fall on his face. He was as crooked as a goat’s hind leg. Then he did fail on his face, was impeached, resigned as POTUS, and was replaced. Richard Nixon went into virtual obscurity after that, never able again to live down what happened, though he did try. Then the US picked itself up, shook the dust off, and moved onward. History is about to repeat itself. As President, he will have all his “shenanigans” reined in…the Oval Office is not Reality TV.

      My fellow countrymen and -women voted in a person who is supported by the Ku Klux Klan. That, right there, says it all.

        It does, indeed…it really, really does. My shock is wearing off, since I wasn’t very surprised. All I feel now is deep anger. That emotion has gotten me through many difficult times, and will do so for these next four years and beyond.

    Let’s fight back
    Michelle Obama for 2020

      I would love to see that, but I don’t want her assassinated. Besides, she’s far too smart to run for that office – especially now that any dignity and honour have been removed with the election of a racist, misogynist, xenophobic, sociopathic narcissist who wants to have sex with his own daughter.

      Michelle Obama will do her own things in her own way, and continue to do them well. I have confidence in that, at the very least.

    Well, I do predict that Trump will be charged with fraud within a year, will be impeached and go straight to jail. That should cool down some Reps. That leaves you with Pence who will not have a chance to do any further damage as he will have to concentrate on 2020.

    I also predict that Michelle Obama will be the first female US President. It may not happen in
    the next election but it will happen. Mark my words.

    I was a Vestal Virgin. I know these things…

    p.s.No I am not a nut…

      I don’t think that you’re a nut at all – and while I don’t think that Michelle Obama would want to run for President, anything is possible…I still think that the first female U.S. President is more likely to be white or Latina. People think that we Black women are “too angry” to do anything well.
