The End of Radio Silence

I have been silent for the last few months, not because I didn't have anything to say, but because I couldn't find the words to properly articulate the crazy that has been happening all around me.
So much crazy has been going on, in fact, that I have fallen into one of my old habits of bottling things up and shutting down; hence the radio silence.

PTSD allows you a certain amount of crazy in your day to day surroundings before you break.  Over the last 7 months or so, I have reached my crazy threshold by 12:00 p.m. just by keeping up with the news. It seems like every single day I find myself thinking, "Oh, what the fuck did he do now?!" when I get a Breaking News alert. It is either something so horrible that he is eventually going to get us all killed, or it is something so hideous and offensive that I will be triggered for the next few hours at minimum.  So, as a survival mechanism, I have been trying to keep my issues boxed away in the attic of my brain so I can…

Dear Global Community

Dear Global Community,

The vast majority of us in the United States are watching what Donald Trump is saying, doing and tweeting with horror, disgust and utter disbelief.  We witnessed a 77-minute press conference, during which he lashed out at the news media for not writing nice things about him.  He doesn't want them to write or broadcast the truth.  He simply wants them to say he farts rainbows and burps puppy dogs!  His skin is so thin that he can't handle even the tiniest amount of criticism! At the time of this press conference I realized that it had been less than a month since he was inaugurated. Yes, you read that correctly.  It hadn't even been a month! As I watched the press conference, I was stunned and concerned. It was like watching someone have a psychotic break on live TV.

Global Community, we are with you and we hope you are with us.  The vast majority of us stand against the insanity that is every piece of the Trump administration. We see that he is, qui…

We rise! We resist! We fight back!

On January 20, 2017 we witnessed an egomaniacal jackass, with an admitted history of sexually assaulting women, being sworn in as President of the United States. While his administration was lying about the attendance of his inauguration, millions of women, and the men who support them, took to the streets all across the United States and the world to march for our rights, the rights of our fellow Americans and against Trump. In U.S. cities like, Philadelphia,  New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Denver, and Seattle women protested against this man, and they were joined by women in London, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, among others.  I was unable to be out with them, but I watched from home and was truly inspired. Even the organizers of the march didn't anticipate the number of people who would show up.  According to a White House source, the sheer size of the attendance, something which Mr. Trump failed to draw at his inauguration, "enraged" him. There is nothing m…

January 20, 2017

On January 20, 2017 the United States of America will have a new President.  The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court will administer the Oath of Office to the most divisive, ill prepared, ignorant, bombastic, sexist, racist, narcissistic, pig headed man, who has multiple allegations of sexual assault against him, ever to run for the office.  On January 20, 2017 we will witness the beginning of the end of America as we know it.  Will I watch the inauguration?  No. I don't get a kick out of seeing democracy die, nor do relish the idea of seeing this completely ignorant person, who goes on a Twitter rampage if someone give a restaurant in one of his ridiculously over priced hotels a bad review, be sworn in to sit in the Oval Office and attempt to lead this country.  I will stand with Congressman John Lewis and boycott the inauguration of this illegitimate president.

Trump doesn't get it.  He doesn't understand that his word have weight.  He doesn't understand that he coul…
