Bitch Session

Just a couple of things I want to complain about tonight, not major things, nothing that’s destroying the world although there’s plenty of that going on, but I’m just going to focus on these little things, crank out my 250 words in less than 10 minutes if possible because I want to get to bed and am not that interested in ‘Food Factory,’ which is the best thing on but definitely not worth staying up for.
First, a lot of people are posting stuff saying that we should all try to get along and we should stop calling Trump supporters stupid. Well, fuck that. Stupid is as stupid votes. I think Forrest Gump said that.
I’m still glad Hillary lost, America dodged a bullet there, but the Trump presidency is shaping up to be a real horror show, his (still theoretical) cabinet appointments are all nightmarish, from the villainous, Snidely Whiplash style banker he wants as Secretary of the Treasury, to that horrible, anti public education, billionaire lady he wants as Secretary of Education, his picks are a gallery of America’s most comically evil people.
So, no, I’m not going to praise, talk nice to or even try to find common ground with his supporters. That’s ridiculous.
The other is a kind of post that’s more of a long term, chronic irritation. I saw a lot of posts of this type before this election cycle, even. The wording is always almost identical. “This is my page and I don’t want any bad language/hateful opinions/disagreement in the comments.” I had a guy the other day tell me he didn’t want to hear anybody defending Castro and then he proceeded to tag me in links to articles about what an evil dictator he was. I haven’t defriended that person yet, but I am thinking about it.
O.K., that took closer to 15 minutes. Good night.
