Ut-fuckin-oh! This is going to make Thanksgiving awkward.

Hell froze over, pigs flew by…

Oh, wait.

This sort of already happened recently with Brexit.

People are frustrated all over the world; everyone regarding their own personal issue.

I’m trying to get those big girl panties on, and be optimistic that this could be a good thing, a learning experience, but I drank a lot last night, and those panties are still hovering around my ankles.

One thing that’s hard for me is a need for decorum.  Politeness.  A honed internal monologue versus an external-only monologue.  Respect and honor.  The thing is, I’ve learned over the last couple of years, that those things are easily faked for those of us gullible enough, or needy enough, to insist upon them.  Televangelists fake it.  Narcissists fake it.  Presidential candidates and other politicians fake it.

Do I ever fake it?  Yeah, sometimes I think I do.

So, that leaves us with the “coming together” part.

But if the only option given to me to “come together” with you is to

1) be your same skin color,

2) be your same sexual orientation,

3) espouse your same values,

4) honor your view that the unborn’s life is “worth it,” but the death row’s life is “not worth it,”

5) be your same religion, and practice it in exactly the same way,

6) not be an atheist for-god’s-sake,

7) own any gun I choose, including those only meant for war,

8) be an isolationist, except for that one tinsy time we violently took the land we spread out our country on,

we’re going to have a problem.

Because if you read through the list above, it does not describe America.  America is not where you, or your ancestors, came to hijack the country for your way of living, exclusively.  America is supposed to be a place where everyone can live their way of life freely, alongside each other.

The list might describe other countries.  It might describe the countries we, or our ancestors, left.

Maybe you need everyone to practice the same religion, most of all.
I hear Afghanistan has that going on.

If that’s what you’re after — everyone the same — maybe America is not the country for you.

If you’re staying, let’s see what Trump can do.  He’s got four years.  And…go!  At least he’s very fashionably on point with the Troll trend.  imagesebaplrqz
