I don’t know about you, but I never in a million years thought Donald Trump would win the election. Boy did I ever have a rude awakening the evening of November 8, 2016; started drinking early that night. It really didn’t start to hit me until the inauguration on January 20th. Maybe because Obama was still in charge until then, and what could go wrong?
So the drawings on this two-pager reflect some of my thoughts on the election. I’ve since accepted it, am in recovery, but sometimes fall off the wagon and get really pissed-off. These ‘piss-fits’ often coincide with watching cable ‘news’ channels. When I turn on Fox (wanna be fairly balanced), I often wonder, “What planet are these phuckers living on?” Bet they think the same thing when they turn on MSNBC, CNN, or even middle of the road NPR.
I feel much better when I don’t watch any of it. More relaxed, peaceful, tolerant of others; life is good when ya filter out all the bullshit and not get sucked into the partisan cultural warfare that’s going on in this country. [America has always been divided since the get-go. In revolutionary days you had the colonists versus the loyalists; Civil War was North versus slave-state South; and even before the two World Wars, there were a lot of people that favored Germany]. Maybe ignorance is truly bliss. Life is good when ya don’t have someone constantly tellin’ ya that it sucks.
Well, it’s time for me to saddle-up, and return to my bliss.
