Sure there’s a lot going on, and the situation feels volatile, though in reality, it’s likely much less so than it feels. President-elect Biden won by every metric, and the pushback against reality is disorienting.
But there are other things besides politics. I posted what I thought was a throw-away comment on twitter about how long my hair has gotten during the pandemic, and to my surprise, people were happy to chat about hair.
All minutes of all days don’t have to be dedicated to this absurd political climate caused, I will emphasize, by one side and one side only. It’s so typical of narcissism that the world becomes the narcissist’s world, and here trump is trying to do that literally.
We don’t have to allow it.
He can stomp his likely tiny little foot all he wants, for once, the world will not conform to his outlandish demands. And we don’t have to feed him energy for his temper tantrum.
So let us roll our eyes at the last days of the pathetic geriatric toddler and just talk about something else. It doesn’t have to be hair.
Have a good Wednesday.
As the sun sets on the trump regime, all I see are Republicans trying to inflict as much damage as possible upon their own country to serve their own ends. It’s nauseating.
There is this thing about powerful men, and let us be clear, it’s always men, where the entire world must conform to their whims. Thousands upon thousands upon thousands of miles away in Russia, normal people try to live normal lives while putin slakes his unquenchable greed and megalomania; here as COVID burns free we watch as the trumps and the entire Republican party laugh and laugh like demons in a nightmare.
There is real evil in the world, and it appears that evil seeks power.
Thanks to the foresight of some people who lived hundreds of years ago, and people who lived at the beginning of the last century, plucking trump off the skin of America like a tick is not impossible. Come January, no matter what he says, he will be gone.
But, like that tick, he’ll leave behind that nasty head in the form of the Republicans still in control. Hopefully we can dig that head out in Georgia in January.
And that’s Tuesday, ended on a gross metaphor. Have a great day.
So we’re under a stay-at-home “advisory” here in Chicago, starting today. But people seem to be taking the word “advisory” flexibly, assuming it leaves latitude not to comply. That could prove problematic.
It’s clear we won’t have a normal Thanksgiving this year. For me, the last few years it’s meant going to a restaurant with my parents so no one has to cook, and that’s been great.
Clearly that’s a no-go.
This year, I will cook something and virtually meet with them. Better that than someone get sick.
It’s enraging that we’re here again, we had all the opportunity in the world to prevent it, but these idiots with their insistence that being a COVID Chris is their right have pushed everything right to the brink.
Anyway, this time we’re more ready, we’ve done it before, we can do it again. Have a good Monday and stay safe.
