After dealing with the illness, then death of my husband I have returned to social media, and am starting to blog again. I am very active on Twitter right now, but hope to do at least one blog entry per week. I am making sure my website is up to date, and fully protected because social media is extremely unpredictable when it comes to censoring people. I see right wing people, especially Alex Jones, and Trump getting away with all kinds of things that many who disagree with Trump, like me, are getting in trouble for. And now our Witless Leader is threatening to regulate Google because he didn’t like the results he got when he searched for news about himself.
The fact that he is threatening to regulate Google because he is too stupid to understand how search engines work, or is deliberately using that apparent stupidity to threaten to regulate it, is just one of the many reasons I refuse to support Trump in any way shape or form. I’m also disgusted by his handling of the death of Senator John McCain. I was far from a McCain fan, but, I did, and still do respect him for his military service to our country, and for surviving over 5 years of captivity and torture. He did NOT deserve what that spiteful man child currently occupying the Whitehouse did.
Now as long as my voice on social media isn’t silenced completely, I will continue using it. However, their unfair application of their “rules”, combined with Trump threatening to “regulate” Google has made me realize those of us who do have websites, need to also use them to make our voices heard. Trolls have a pretty easy time getting folks banned from social media, but web hosting companies aren’t about to get rid of paying customers who ARE following the rules, because of trolls.
Hopefully, he will not be able to regulate Google. However, at the FIRST sign of that happening I will be looking for another blog program since I currently use Blogger because it can be integrated into my website through Rapid Weaver. If I have to resort to a different method of blogging because of him regulating Google, so be it. I would rather do that, than have anything to do with Google, or Blogger if the President of this country trashes the 1st Amendment by regulating Google.
This is one American who is not going quietly into the night. I will NOT sit still while the voices of Americans who disagree with him are being systematically silenced. I will continue to speak out, speak up, and fight for what I believe in. Citizens being able to speak out, and speak up is what truly makes America great. I will also make my voice heard by voting in every local, state, and national election we have. I encourage others to also use their voices and votes to fight for what they believe in.
To all those resisting this damn regime, stay strong, keep resisting, and keep using your voices and votes. And for right now, stay the hell focused on the Midterms. Let’s take as many seats as we can. Don’t let the numerous distractions he is tossing out cause you to lose sight of the prize the Midterms represent. Let’s turn up in DROVES in November.
I just want to thank Donald Trump for all that he has done for America. Thanks to the hatred, rage, and bigotry he feeds his base, the dark soul of racist America has been put on full display. While he and his base spent 8 years blaming racism on the black guy, hate crimes and the harassment of anyone that isn’t lily white have sky rocketed since he has been in office. Plus, he has dumbed down his base so much, many of them don’t even know Puerto Rico is part of America. Now that, takes real talent. In fact, he is so talented at doing that, a man was actually arrested not long ago for verbally assaulting a woman wearing a t-shirt that said she supports Puerto Rico on it. In a public park no less! While the park ranger just stood there and did nothing. Truly, it takes a talented bastard to incite that kind of hatred and ignorance in his base.
Along with his astounding talent for inciting hatred, bigotry, and utter ignorance in his base, he is also America’s current reigning Champ at being banned from funerals. Including the funeral of the late Senator McCain. I know his base is proud of that because so many of them were so vicious when Fox News ran videos of Senator McCain, a decorated war hero, who endured over 5 years of captivity and torture in Nam, they had to shut the comments section down. So let’s give the Champ a big round of applause for that!
When not displaying his astounding talent for inciting hatred, bigotry, and ignorance in his base, and being America’s Champ at getting banned from funerals, he takes time out in his busy schedule to accidentally quote his disapproval numbers, as proof of how popular he is. Now honestly America, being that fucking stupid, takes enormous talent. He’s definitely a Champ at vain stupidity, as well as at getting banned from funerals. No wonder his totally dumbed down base adores this multi talented “Stable Genius”.
But, that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this multi talented “Stable Genius”. Thanks to his superb skills as a negotiator, and love of tariffs, we are now going to get to spend billions bailing farmers out of the mess he has gotten them into. Oh, and he is also encouraging his base to attack that all American company, Harley Davidson, because those tariffs may force them to take some of their business overseas. I tell you, I honestly have never before seen this kind of skill. It truly boggles the mind. And, he’s about to announce some “really great deal” with Canada and Mexico. I know his clueless base is all excited about that. And I have to admit, I can’t wait to see that “really great deal” as well. And speaking of Mexico, they are still NOT paying for that damn wall. Unless, that is part of the “really great deal” he has made. Any bets on that being part of it? And given what NK got out of their deal with him, Mexico and Canada are probably happy dancing.
History, along with social media, is recording these, and other mind boggling “achievements” so that future generations will truly understand just how great he has made America. I know I want my grandchildren to FULLY understand what he has done. Especially, if they get Mesothelioma from the fucking Russian made asbestos with his image on it he is now allowing to be brought into this country for use in it. Because making asbestos great again, is another one of those ever so great “achievements” we must not overlook. Our children and grandchildren need to know why they may someday die from one of the worst poison induced diseases there is. So they can thank any of their parents and grandparent who voted for Trump. And Made America Great Again.
For so long now I have watched certain Republicans openly gloat and enjoy the pain and despair of others. They said, “We love drinking your Liberal tears.” They FED on the pain of others. They ENJOYED “drinking the tears” of those in despair. They picked up and ran with the word “Deplorable”. Made it plain they LOVED being deplorable, while people lost their health insurance. They laughed and drank those tears of sorrow as POC were harassed and assaulted in our streets. They fucking CHEERED as Nazis marched in our streets and “Drank” the tears of those whose fathers and grandfathers went to war, and some died, fighting Nazis. They fucking rejoiced with every tear we shed about that. They “drank” every one of the tears of despair that have been shed. And laughed as they did so.
I just hope they can take it, as well as they can dish it out, because I’m damn sure not crying right now. Oh hell no! I’m laughing as I watch the lawyer of the man they voted for going to jail for helping that son of a bitch rig the election. I’m laughing as the truth comes out about the porn stars he paid off before the election. I’m fucking rejoicing now as that all comes to light. I won’t drink any tears they shed, but I will damn sure enjoy giving them buckets full of my righteous tears of laughter as this shit show they voted for folds up its tent.
So to each and every sorry ass deplorable who drank and enjoyed the many tears of despair some were shedding, buckle your ass up because this Bitch is going to repay that favor now by filling fucking buckets with the mocking tears of laughter I am shedding. What? You don’t like those kind tears? You only want to drink despair? Well too bad because I’m not shedding those kind of tears. I’m not feeding you despair. I’m feeding you joy and mocking laughter as I see the clay footed God you chose to worship being brought down.
I’m going to continue joyously shedding tears of mocking laughter as the clay footed God they chose to worship is brought down. I’m going to be doing a happy dance every day, probably at least 2 or 3 times a day as that false porn star loving God comes tumbling down. So, to all those who love “Drinking Liberal Tears”, suck up the buckets full of tears this Independent with Liberal leanings is shedding right now. Bring your Yeti mug if you didn’t shoot it, and fill it full! Drink! Drink! Suck those beautiful tears of laughter down. And try not to choke as you do so. Oh yeah, and remember this, Karma can be a real Bitch, and so can I.
Good morning world. As I sip my first cup of tea and read the news I am once more struck by just how far down the rabbit hole Team Trump has already dragged us. This descent started with shit like the Bowling Green Massacre that never happened, and was followed by Team Trump giving us further crap like the phrase “Alternate Facts”. Oh man the Cheshire Cat smiled ever so big when they presented phrase to us. That’s when I started searching for the caterpillar with the hookah.
And now, American citizens are holding DIY Russian flag signs thanking Russia for hacking the election, ABOVE an American flag. Which yeah, was probably made in China. Alex Jones unsuccessfully tried to start a 2nd Civil War, and is now threatening Robert Mueller. And honestly, when Alex Jones threatened the man who brought Gotti and Sammy The Bull down. Then the Prez sent a late night all caps tweet to Iran threatening war. And I began searching even harder for the caterpillar with the hookah.
Praise the Goddess late last night I finally found the caterpillar with the hookah because I really need that caterpillar as we continue our descent down into the rabbit hole created by the Bowling Green Massacre and other “Alternate Facts”, like tariffs are the best.
About that "Cyber Thing"
If nothing else, when I finally do shuffle off this earth, I will do so knowing I have experienced some of the most interesting times in modern history. Including the era of "Alternate Facts". Having survived the many things I have, including the 70's, and online chat, I feel fully prepared to take on this new era. Fully experiencing online chat was great preparation for this funky new era. Ya'll really don't know the meaning of "Alternative Facts" until you have done chat. That's why I'm prepared for any "Alternative Fact" that can be thrown at me. I saw more "Alternative Facts" pass before my one good eye when I was chatting than you can shake a dozen sticks at now. I wrote about some of them. So when it comes to "Alternative Facts", bring it on! Hell, add a fake pic if you want. Goddess knows I saw enough of those as well.
Oh yeah and about that "Cyber Thing" Donald mentioned. I was running the chat rooms on the wonderful World Wide Web when that "Cyber Thing" had a whole different meaning. Remember dial up and AOL chat rooms? I do. Very fondly at times. After that it was HTML chat rooms. Those AOL and beyond days where there term "cyber" really came flowing from. Yes, pun intended. If you didn't get the pun, you have as little understanding of what "cyber" once actually meant, as Donald does. Or, the whole came flowing from thing, sailed over your head like a 747. Either way, I agree his son knows more about computers than Donald does. Then again, so does this blonde on an iPad.
When it comes to hackers and what he said about them, I damn sure crossed paths with several of them back in the day when websites were totally HTML coded. I built my first website in that era. I even once accidentally hacked into a bank while setting setting up a shopping cart CGI script. This happened because they didn't send me the email that contained a security link I was suppose to click on first. Technically, not even the best hacker was suppose to be able set up a shopping cart without first clicking on that link in the email. Yet without really knowing what in the hell I was doing, or even why, after hours of wrestling with that CGI script, I managed to do what not even the most talented hacker of that era was suppose to be able to do. And let me tell you, convincing the the bank, my web hosting company, and the Feds I honestly didn't have a clue how I did it, wasn't easy. I think I'm still on their radar over that, and a few other things. That's why I'm not afraid of Donald. If I ever popped up on his radar enough for him to say to the Feds, "You need to watch her." The Feds would be like, "We already have been. For years." Hell, given my radical ways, the number of politicians I've pissed off, and the accidental hacking thing, Trumps file may be tiny in comparison to mine.
Turn it back. That is what I'm recommending we do to survive the Trump Presidency. Turning it back is something a lot of Witches believe in doing when bad shit happens to us. There are lots of Magickal ways we do this. I'm not going to go into those though. See, it's not always about Magick with us. We are, for all our Mystical Magickal ways, a very pragmatic bunch. That may seem like a paradox or oxymoron to some. But really, it's not. Especially, when it comes to survival. We learned real quick spells didn't save us from dungeons, fires, and hangman's noose. So we got really down to earth pragmatic about surviving in a hostile environment. And make no mistake about this, even before Trump, we were already still surviving in a sometimes very hostile environment.
Turning it back, through spells, and in a very real way is one way we have survived. That's what we need to do again, in a very real way. Take those Religious Liberty Laws they have passed and are going to pass more of. Everybody is freaking out. But, the law cuts both ways. Never forget that. Wicca is a recognized religion in this country, therefore Religious Liberty, also applies to us. Now if merely providing birth control through a healthcare plan violates the religious right of a Christian business owner, then forcing a child to bow his or head head in school, and pray to God he or she does not follow, and whose parents do not follow, most assuredly violates the hell out of that child's Religious Liberty. Think about it. The Supreme Court already set this up.
Now when it comes to what everybody can do about some of this other bad shit going down, I recommend learning from the Tea Party. When it comes my bunch, you might say we are the original grass roots organization. We normally operate as quietly as possible though because we are still a religious minority, surviving in a still hostile environment. But, even so, we can get things done. Like have our religion recognized, and be allowed to use a pentacle on the gravestone of Pagan Veterans. We won the right to do that in 2007 after a LONG and bitter battle. However, if enough people of all religions, all walks of life band together, and do like we did, only a lot louder, like the Tea Party did, we can get shit done. Which is again, in effect, turning their own tactics back on them.
Now one thing about Pagans, we are for the most part, one of the most accepting and inclusive bunch of people there is. There can be a lot infighting at times over "the right way" to do a spell or ritual, or be a Witch or a Druid or a Whatever. I will admit that. But, we don't have any problem with gays, lesbians, bisexual, or transsexuals. We just frankly don't give a bat's bony butt about that. You are what you are. That simple. Which is why many of them are coming to our path. We also have a Never Again The Burning Times For Anyone thing going for us, so we are a sanctuary for many who are at risk. Witches know all about being at risk. We'll put the infighting away, and band together very quickly when it comes to helping and protecting those at risk. I am already seeing some articles encouraging people to seek help from us because of that. And because we do know how to survive in a very hostile environment. That's why I have written this. I am doing my part to reach out and pass on what knowledge and help I can. We are all in this together. Let's all come together and help each other survive. It's going to be a tough battle. Some of us won't survive. But, we can still survive as a whole, and in the end, win again. See, what you have to understand is we believe life is a circle. What goes around, comes around. Call us foolish if you wish. Just remember, we Witches are still here. Despite the best attempts of some to exterminate us.
Dear women of America,
There is NO safe space except that which you make for yourself. One Republican Politician has already grabbed a woman by her genitals, then laughed about it, said he doesn't have to be politically correct anymore, and that is would be his word against hers. Fortunately, surveillance cameras caught him in the act, and proved just how freaking disgusting that man is, and what he believes is acceptable now that Trump has been elected.
My advice to every woman reading this is get some pepper spray, and/or a gun, and God damn well defend yourselves against anyone who assaults you in this manner. STOP crying, STOP asking for a safe space that doesn't exist in this country, and never really has for women, or any minority. Otherwise, yes, you will one day find yourself as nothing but a sexual slave to Republican men who believe Trump's Presidency allows them to openly assault you now. Buck up ladies, and DEFEND yourselves.
Start pepper spraying, and if necessary, shooting men who openly assault you in the name of Trump. That's the ONLY way these type of men will learn to respect you because violence is ALL they respect. Now show them what you are made of, and damn defend yourself. Start openly carrying that pepper spray, and if it is legal, a gun, and let it be known you WILL use them to defend yourself because thanks to Trump, you are now a target for any man who wants to grab your genitals anytime he wants to. Only YOU can stop that. The laws are being changed as we speak to protect rapists more and more. Now get a clue. ARM yourselves ladies, with pepper spray, guns, whatever it takes to protect yourself.
