I had that casual feeling that I would live to be pretty old. It was just how it was going to be. Women in my family do. They live to be wicked old out of spite. That is their thing. I even looked at some really old records of ancestors from the 17th century and they all lived to be pretty old. (a few died youngish due to a famine that came through but for the most part they lived to be old.)
Then this man was elected president and now I don't know if I will live to be old. Or if my children will live to be adults.
I am filled with such rage at that horrible worthless human being, and his disgusting gremlins. I wish upon them the kinds of things I don't normally wish upon another human being. But by God, I want everything terrible to come to them if they are going to try and take my life or the lives of so many others with them.
May something in the universe stop them from engaging in all of their potential horrors.
Now is the time to engage in the sort of civil disobedience that isn't polite but saves the human race. Sometimes you have to break a little property to preserve the republic.

I agree with everything you said, and would like to add "It's only a matter of time before they turn on each other and start eating themselves."

Sure, we'll all suffer the fallout, but at least this has self-destruction written all over it.

I was talking with my friend today - and I brought up the fact that Trump is the single most insecure person I've ever seen. Every response he makes to criticism, or perceived criticism just shows how deeply insecure he is.

And that thing he does where any time anyone brings up ANY topic, "I know SO MUCH about , I'm really the best at it" - most people go through a phase of doing that when they are 5 or 6?

Grown-ass adults don't DO that. Unless they are compensating for deep feelings of worthlessness and insecurity.

Still doesn't make me feel *bad* for him though - but he's in WAY over his head and he knows it, even if he won't admit it.

I wish we could 'like' LJ comments, I would be liking all of these.

My son is 6 and he has much more empathy and kindness than Trump, even when he's winding up his little sister. And when we point out that he's wrong about something and shouldn't be rude, he has the grace to apologise and to look like he's at least thinking about what we said.

I mean, it's not surprising that I would like my own child better than I'd like any given politician, but it's a bit scary that my fairly average 6yo is more thoughtful and considerate than the so-called Leader of the Free World.

I can't watch. I will have to wait for American Livejournalers to filter it for me.
