SOMETHING WICKED COMES

That first picture certainly sums it up for me today.  During this time of pandemic and in a year of election...it has been some eye opening moments, and I can't lie had me on an emotional roller coaster for most of the year. I don't recall being so up and down emotionally...like ever. At times I had some downright evil villainous thoughts of some,  on par with that of that loon, Cersei Lannister or Daenerys Targaryen. Had I a dragon at my disposal, and with my scorpion temper, we'd being seeing DC currently in rumble. I have always had a passion for the environment and the animal kingdom,  and would most times figure humans have what comes to them from Mother Nature if they can't treat the planet better and killing of animals to the brink of extinction in some cases. And I still feel that way. When the pandemic hit, I was shocked by how the environment was correcting itself so quickly. But that was short lived. And then there's the election. And we all know where I stand of that. I don't play. If I had my way, the guillotine would be rolled back with a list of at least  8 to send to it. And I don't feel bad. Especially with the head ass. He could sit and rot in jail, and he still wouldn't give two shits, come out and do it all over. Nope. Why take up room. I had no idea how the election would end up and did indeed think, The Dump would win, and thankful not. But now here we are, not surprised to see what's going on. I think we knew it would be a fight if some states were close. I just hope he doesn't walk free with many of his spawn. Hopefully we will be on the right track to getting things back to normal.

As I told Sixpense yesterday on his blog, the most frustrating thing for me in the election was the Dems and the Lincoln Project. The Dems leadership paid tens of millions to the GOP Lincoln Project to help lure GOP voters, and it failed. Biden got very little votes from it, and more GOP voters chose the dump than in 2016. I believe the Dems gave the project like $67 million , which I feel could have been spent on flipping state legislatures who control voting districts. Not one state legislature was flipped.  Had they been, they could've redistricted so that  Dems could've won more easily for decades. Or put more into those valuable Senate seats...which I hope we can still win. Instead Lincoln Project spent more $ on vanity projects  like a billboard in Time Square in a solidly blue district- not a battleground. A dumb use of a fortune which failed. I was also shook to the core when I heard just how many did indeed turn out for trump. That is frankly scary as hell. I only hope the current winners can get us back on track and that this country comes to it's senses and acts more caring and compassionate for others for differences of many factors. 

The other thing that angers me is the next relief package. A friend of mine is completely blaming the GOP...which is somewhat correct. But there has to be give and take. I also blame Nancy. She asked for 2.2 trillion in aid and the GOP went up from $0 to $800 billion to $1.8 trillion. She should've taken that deal, but she didn't want a check to go out with trump's name on it before the election. I can see her point,  very little. BUT people in traffic for food banks, homeless for the first time in their lives, or fighting off evictions or forecloses, don't care whose name was on those checks. We have two parties of Marie Antoinette,  and it's time for the guillotines. Democrats under her leadership failed as hard as the McTurtle or the GOP. Maybe THIS is why the largest group of voters is non-voters, and the second largest is Independents. Dems and the GOP get around 25% each, because they both suck. Hopefully Biden can work his magic and make this work. He needs to put all their balls to the wall and find middle ground.

The other thing getting me up and down has been the idea of cutting ties with some. During this time between election and pandemic, I had some eye openings. I severed two friendships over this. I had to let hem go. I told them that I think it's very sad you can't be friends with me over one aspect of my life. I have so many things to offer as friends and yet they couldn't get past my being Democrat. Them choosing a friendship like that is no different in my mind as ending it over say my religion, my color, my age or my sexual orientation. I figure they are probably just  close minded, or just a simpleton. One of my best friends is a republican, mind you liberal, but none the less an R. We may have disagreements, but we are always there for the thick and then thin. But with Trump supporters it was a whole new bag  of nuts and crazy. I guess they didn't think my bashing of trump was so funny? And the mask and social distance thing I don't get either. What in the hell is so damn hard following a few simple fucking rules?!?!?!?! I suspect I may lose two more friends. One who is pretty fun invited me to his holiday party. I was invited to three parties so far, and have said I wasn't attending any this year. Two were to be intimate, but none the less, I don't know some of the other invitees. The other, he is a popular guy and I know the party will have to many guest. I don't think he was happy of me not coming. To bad too sad. But the shocker was my friend who I normally go with. She drives and I drink!!!! She asked if I was going and told her I wasn't. She then said she'd still go, but wasn't,  if she had to wear a mask in a private home. WHAT?!?!?! I told her she was nuts. I told her , her thinking is what is driving this virus crazy! She gave me some choice words as I gave her some back and finally told her peace bitch, and hung up. And people wonder why I could care less if the virus corrects the linage of stupidly, and thins the herd. It angers me because it seems the idiots are the ones eluding it, or recovering  while the people taking the precautions are getting it and dying. 

So... I will continue my love of the planet and animals, and continue wearing my mask and being as carful as I can. Much like the virus, I will cut dead weight, and am looking at this period as a new chapter or beginning mind you. And I will be happy with Biden and Harris as our new, and competent leaders.  I'm trying to see positive. I worry this cut back on social isolation for me will able me to further build a wall back up, and become even icier. That worries me. I am already feeling more comfortable getting reclusive. And that worries me. I also have not seen Daddy Warbucks in over a year, or the Lad for almost a year. I could just be cranky from lack of sex and my own hand. I don't know. I sure hope I didn't offend anyone, it was not my intent. Or am I just over thinking and being to emotional, I just don't know. I took a dip over night I guess. I have wondered... I sometimes feel like there is no one to talk to even though I know that is tomfoolery. But I'm so used to listening, cheering and being the jester...if I go down, who will be there for me, if I'm the party pep?  Boy...this was a downer, forgave me dears.

  1. I bet it feels better to let it all out. There are a lot of us that are exhausted from faking it that everything is going to be fine. I have dropped several long term friends this year, just too much stupidity to tolerate. HWMNBN's refusal to admit he LOST, and stirring up his followers with false claims of misdeeds is terrifying. Hell, if we could rig an election to you think Mitch McTurtle would have been re-elected? It has been a rough year, I will continue with the delusion that the best is yet to come.

    I'm not surprised that you took a dip as you've just heard about a client dying of covid - this would inevitably lead to a lot of thinking. It has been a turbulent and emotional year - expect turbulent emotions!
    Take care.

  3. I'm with you, MM, all the way.
    But I do have hope with _____ leaving that many in the GOP will suddenly find their spines. I do have hope that Biden is the stepping stone to a new, younger, more progressive DNC.
    But my hope for the anti-virus, anti-mask, anti-vaccine loons? Get sick. Get real sick. And then complain to me and see how little I will care. I don't want you to die, but you acting like this ignores the nearly 300,000 dead and the tens of millions infected, so get real sick. I don't care.

  7. 2020 has taken its toll on most of us, so I am not surprised you have your "Black Dog" moments. We all do. It's obviously been a helluva difficult year for an extrovert to face not only losing your job but also being months on your own in the flat. I shan't mention the US election, as that just seems to rile everybody over there.

    But what I will say is THIS WILL END some day soon, and we'll all party till our tits fall off! Clink, clink, sweetie. Jx

  9. Like you I have friends on either side of the political divide, one even farish right (not batshit crazy far right like QAnon people but even so....) and another farish left.

    I too am becoming inclined to go out less and I am not the only one on this side of the pond. I am lucky that I am in a bubble with a friend in the village and she comes over to see me as she lives on her own (legally allowable here). We have to social distance but that is fine, we can live with that as we natter face to face twice a week helping to keep both of us sane.

  11. When you blow, you blow!!!! I say let it out. And your closing line is totally understandable. I can see why many would come to you and you always so laid back and funny. Thankfully you have good friends. And I think for many, like you have said, it's going to be a new time, a new chapter and many are purging wing nuts and those anti mask wearing assholes. I know I have. I have found out who my friends are yet again. I also agree that DC needs to be cleaned out even further. Your line "We have two parties of Marie Antoinette" is dead on. I hate the GOP, but Nancy should have taken that deal because of the reasons you stated. NOW look where we are. Some are on the verge of ruin, or are now homeless. Sorry ....like McConnell, Nancy needs to go.... much like Diane Feinstein. All I can say is Joe has his work cut out with all these entitled cry babies. Do you GodDamned jobs you were hired to do.

  13. Extraordinary post...so much thought provoking content...your thoughts resonate with me as I think I share your views quite closely. I tend to be less harsh on nancy cause I think playing the hand we’ve been dealt is tough....it sickened me that the mumzer (yiddish provides a most appropriate word for t****) had the chutzpah to put his fucking name on the letter accompanying the checks that were sent out by the treasury department, but failure to get that to happen has dire implications to many....
    My crowd is intact...don’t have much contact with those who voted for the mumzer (except the distant relatives I don’t talk to anyhow). My concern is the significant split in our country...with those t’a refusing to acknowledge his clear defeat and thinking the election was “stolen”.... yet somehow we have got to get back together...
    Great photos...old car shots are a favorite and the guy with the bulge is hot!!
    We must keep up the effort...on to Georgia....possibly the t’a divisiveness will damage there cause, we can rally with Georgia to bring Warnock and Ossoff to victory (and ditch fucking mitch)

  14. Do not feel that you are alone. Much the same has happened to me, from the loss to friendships to the worrying about the election and worrying about this fucking virus. With a compromised immune system, it's scary to even venture out of the house, and I feel as I'm losing touch with friends. I've been severely depressed the past week or so with all the fuckery going on. Honest, I actually started looking for something I could take to just knock me out and ....
    Well, I know that's stupid, right? But, who can I call and talk to who would listen to my venting? Most of the people who DO talk with me end up telling me THEIR stories of woe as I sit and listen. Mistress, we are pretty much two of a kind, you and I. Great big, warm internet hugs!

  16. Yes. I think you were in need of a purge. And I can't disagree with much of it either. As I matter of fact Im one of those after the election who is now registered Independent.

    If only you could ride in down on DC with a dragon and threaten. Goodness knows they all need to be shaken in their shoes. I've never seen a bigger shit show in all my life. And don't blame you one bit about the mask thing. American seem to think there invincible. How quickly we forget about wars, 911 and yes even the pandemic while were still in it. We need more wake up calls I think.

    I feel you with the exclusion of some people from your life. I've done the same and it has not been easy. Some of those people mean a lot to people I love but just can't with the MAGAts; it's a very special kind of crazy, impervious to reason and arguments.
    And as people have said, you're not alone. if we weren't in the middle of a fucking pandemic, I'd make a road trip just to hang out with cha, dear.

  19. There is no forgiveness necessary Dear Mads, you needed to speak your Mind about how you feel about all of this and it was all quite relevant. If you didn't Care so much perhaps you could overlook it all but you are a Caring Soul who is deeply Passionate about what matters. I have cut ties with some that were of The Cult, I just had to, too toxic. Politics before Twitler was so different, I didn't Care what Partisan Politics anyone had because none of it bordered on dangerous ground and had a modicum of Sanity and Goodness behind it for the most part. Politics and Religion have always been very controversial Topics for so many that mainly I avoided talking about either in the presence of anyone... until now, when it became absolutely necessary to take a stand and have it be on the side of what is just decent and preserves Democracy and the Country I Love. I just don't like the direction I am seeing most Politics, not just the corruption but the Silence against it is deafening and complicit. As for the Planet and it's sentient Beings in it, Mother Nature tries very hard to balance what we've done and it was encouraging to see how quickly She self-corrected and the Animals responded to the lack of Man's interference for the first time in perhaps a Century or more! Too bad it didn't last long enough, Mother Nature might have corrected a multitude of our Sins against Her and all the Creatures we should be Sharing this Planet with in Peace and Harmony. Shit, we can't even, as a Species, live in Peace and Harmony with one another, let alone with other Species... Mankind really needs to be Bitch slapped and I think perhaps the Pandemic has somewhat accomplished that to wake us up and humble us... realizing we're not demigods and that we could become extinct if we can't do whatever is necessary, might just be what will turn some things around? And you ALWAYS have someone to talk to here in this Wonderful Community of The Land Of Blog, we Love you and we Care deeply too.

Luckily William and I get along and care about each other, I mean we are married and haven't killed one another. And at least we get to the market once a week, and had a change of four walls to the beach....but the hardest thing for me has been not seeing my kids. The holidays just aren't the same. The people not wearing masks and have issues with stuff should just get the virus and then should be able to seek help if that's how it is to be.

  22. Remember that a LARGE part of what's being called news lately is op-ed. Unless there's a source cited and proof, it's all hot air. And The Orange Thing, with all his cronies in the media, has put out so many metric shit-tons of spin and outright lies and spread it all so quickly that it's really difficult for TOT's constituency, who take their news off Yahoo or Facebook, ( between smoking crack and playing video games, watching American Idol, or taking a flip through Self magazine at the nail salon)to pick the facts out of the pigfeed. Not that they're interested in facts. No! They want infotainment! And TOT is fun! He's amusing! He's a goofball! He's not hard to understand because he don't be all like usin' big ol' words an' shit! Now as for you, baby, you aren't anybody's fool and you're nobody's jester either. I'm not here to be amused, although I frequently am because you've got a helluva sense of humor.
