Like most of us here, I really hate the chump they're calling president. apart from the travesty he represents for this nation, I have come to resent the hate that I see & feel about him everyday. It's like a poison that we happily consume. Perhaps i am different, but i feel ashamed and saddened that our society lets this person occupy such a hearty slice of thier time, attention, perspective....... ridiculously accommodating his hateful tactics. I'm not saying we should ignore him, I'm saying he's an old joke that doesn't need re-telling all the time.
My husband was getting so depressed over it that I finally took the remote and made him watch YouTube Videos on how to play guitar...you have to walk away..take a break of some length...do something positive for yourself or your community...if you don't recharge, you will not have the motivation or energy when it will be needed...
Everyone has a limit...some low, some high...you are a respected member of this community...take a break...
what's the point of causing psychic stress & turmoil in yourself by hating him?
the US has reached the point where desperate people voted for a populist b/c they're tired of getting totally screwed by establishment politicians. i can easily understand why many refused to vote for the limousine lib democrats.
anyway the situation is hopeless. doesn't matter who gets elected from here on.
there will be a great reckoning.
I see a double standard. There were 8 years of Republican public maligning of the capable, ethical statesman who preceded this monster, so it doesn’t surprise me to see/hear the current vitriol. America is not great again; it is far worse off than it was...even the stock market is not hugely successful. Yes, the hate talk is excessive...but anti-Obama hate talk was excessive for eight years...and it continues to be so even this far beyond his administration. Did you complain about THAT then or now? I doubt it. The Republican party manipulated the prejudices and bigotry that exists in America to elect an unqualifued poor excuse for a leader, and he is getting what he deserves. And America has gotten what it deserves for being taken in by it.
