Racism, as I see it, in a nutshell

No racist thinks they are racist.  Actually, they don’t believe racism exists.  They believe they are superior, and they don’t think that there is anything wrong with that.  They don’t believe in everyone being equal.  They think this is liberal snowflake nonsense.

Although the Liberal ‘snowflake’ thing is new terminology, racists have ALWAYS felt this way.  We cannot change racist’s minds on the subject.  That’s been Liberal’s problem; trying to change thinking.  Can’t do it.  We need to stop wasting time trying to change adult minds that are set in stone, and instead, focus our energy and efforts in getting out the vote, and doing our best to outvote them.

Period.  Anything else is a waste of time and loss of focus.

And yes, I feel better, but I tire easily.  So I’m taking it pretty easy.

P.S. oddly enough, it appears that my December SS retirement first check was deposited 1/2.  I hadn’t even noticed with my flu/virus.  So that’s the good news!

This next week I’ll be back to visiting your blogs.  I miss you guys!

Four, and counting

In the past 24 hours, I have un-friended four people on Facebook for their posts about #takeaknee supporting Trump.

I have reached critical mass when it comes to stupidity, racism (latent or blatant), and hate-mongering.

I won’t unfriend a child, grandchild, or in-law (those I’ll simply un-follow if need be), but anyone else is fair game.  I’ve put up with their shit for 12 months now.  I’m DONE.

They are welcome to their opinion.  It’s just not going to litter my Facebook anymore.  Nope.  Can’t make me.  It’s time to stand up and be counted.  I choose to stand up against racism and supporting a narcissistic idiot president who is not worthy of the office.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— 
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— 
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Trump

It’s hard to keep one’s anxiety at bay when you have a damned jackass as president of your great nation.  As if he hasn’t said enough inflammatory shit about how he feels about abject racism, we get this tweet this morning:

Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments. You…..
(so far he hasn’t finished that thought.)
So Confederate statues are BEAUTIFUL?
Good God, how could we have sunk this far??!?
