Jakes Progress

Wed Feb 22, 2017, 12:29 AM Feb 2017

I have close, hard-working, truly decent friends who are about to be deported. [View all]

They are lovely people. They are good and kind and compassionate. They are about to have their lives turned into shit because of the sheer hate and ignorance and greed of trump and the braindead, soulless, drooling assholes who helped elect him.

I am mad a hell. I can't bring myself to speak with anyone - republican or democrat - who had anything to do with bringing about the destruction of the American dream.

If you voted for trump, you belong in hell. If you didn't vote because you thought Hillary was not your cup of tea, you need to hang your head in shame. If you voted for one of the idiot third party candidates, you are shit.

I cannot bring the words to describe how I feel about the ruined lives. Don't tell me that we have to fight. I am. But it is too late for these blameless people. I feel horrible for the ones I know and can only despair at how their misery is multiplied across the county because of the wretched people who helped trump into the white house.

If you fall into any of the categories above, just go fuck yourselves and die. You truly suck.
