About Me

old. Boring. Too complacent to realize my full potential.

Lately I've been feeling

that this period of trumpism we find ourselves in will be regarded as a period of time in U.S. history in which we were without a president. I sincerely believe this and know I'm not the only one. Other than the damn Disney hall of presidents, there will be no reference of this guy being president. Hell, Disney may remove this jerkwad from that attraction and replace it with a large talking asterisk. History books won't even mention that god awful beast and instead speak highly of an amazing period in our history in which activists, the courts, and women (especially African American women) worked their asses off to hold our fractured nation together through sheer will to ensure we didn't fall fully into authoritarianism.

Anyone thought of running for office?

I've often thought of running for office knowing i have no chance of winning. I am an atheist and would proudly proclaim it during a campaign. My main issue to run on would be to make gun ownership ridiculously difficult to obtain and maintain as well as an outright ban on military style rifles. My next issue would be to lift restrictions on abortion access. Finally, i would insist that churches, especially mega churches, pay taxes. Oh, also 100% marijuana legalization. Living in northeast Houston suburbs, i might receive about 10% of the vote with this platform, but i think it would be important to put these ideas out there during a campaign. I personally don't hear this enough. Maybe 2020.

Oh my gosh! Someone posted a little while ago about the new queer eye series on Netflix. I didn't realize there was a new one. I watched the original religiously and loved it. I've just been binging it and have fallen in love with this one too! I wasn't sure how i would respond to the new crew, but they are just as awesome!!! It also makes me feel good about humanity. In this hyper partisan world, it's nice to see people accepting each other and being able to interact as we are supposed to. Who knows, maybe I'll learn to lose some of my hatred for redneck trumpers. Baby steps. We'll see...
