there are many things we can do over the next four years to combat what is most certainly going to be a gruesome and dark period in this country. one of the most important: READ. seriously. the election of trump represents the death of a fundamental component of democracy: intellect. it has been stigmatized as something bourgeois and elitist and it is not. it's a wonderful thing that anyone can acquire. so whether you're an academic or a 9 to 5er read. read voraciously. and when the dust settles we'll be a better place for it. cus i love my country with all my heart and i know you do too. and we're not gonna let a bunch of misogynistic half-wit goons take it over.
56,959,821 people feel a sex offender should be president. 56,959,821 people should know that my baby girl is the most important thing in the world to me. you touch her and i'll put you in the fucking ground. you can consider this a message from all us dads that were raised to respect women.
out taking a stroll with anna we got on the topic of cecilia's sleep schedule and how we both felt she sometimes doesn't take enough naps.
midway through our conversation we passed a meth head which was in stark contrast to our pleasent walk on a sunny day. there were a few moments of silence. then anna turned to me and said "man, talk about not taking enough naps."
love that woman.
please read and please consider. only three times...3...in the nearly 160 year history of THE ATLANTIC have they endorsed a presidential candidate. they were in states of crisis/emergency. lincoln, johnson and now clinton. and the last time had some disturbing parallels to this one. trump is a legitimate threat to american democracy. a very real one. he's also a VASTLY different candidate than clinton. stop lumping them in the same category. it's naive, ill-informed and could easily destroy this country.
just fucking vote for hillary. seriously. i was all for sanders and now that he's out of the picture i'm voting for hillary. and i don't want to have to explain to republicans why they shouldn't vote for a man who is BY DEFINITION (as in the dictionary) a fascist and is endorsed by neo-nazis. and i don't want to have to explain to liberals looking to vote third party why all this armchair proletariat shit they're trying to pull will propel a man into the white house who will CRIPPLE everything they're trying to achieve and make their situation astronomically worse. i don't want to explain it because it's obvious. and i shouldn't have to explain obvious things to adults. and if you still wanna go "fuck you lee. you only strengthened my resolve" then fine. come visit me in canada when you need a job because the US dollar is as worthless as the steaks your dipshit president tried to sell on sharper image. cus that's where i'm taking my family and headed if my other option is living in a country that has to utter the phrase "donald trump is my president." cus while i'm proud to be an american there's no way i can proudly say that. none of you should be able to say that and keep a straight face. that's one thing we all have in common. in fact let's all come together and unite behind that. there. problem solved. hillary's president. we all don't die. now let's talk about a cubs world series.
had a dream last night that i was traveling abroad with two other people. on a whim we decide to take a trip to south america before heading back to the states. the ticket attendant tells me it will be $550 and $350 respectively. i suddenly realize you need money to buy plane tickets. i become visibly upset. the attendant calls over her manager. he looks at me and goes "are you biggie smalls?" i tell him i am not. he gives me a sly look and instructs her to give me the tickets for free. i wake up. dream analysis: biggie's alive and he's stuck in an airport in europe.
lady on the bus was sitting in the handicapped seat. woman with a wheelchair gets on. lady in the handicapped seat goes "shit, this is stupid. now i have to get up and move to the back." streamers shot out and a banner dropped reading "one billionth shitty person on the bus." everyone applauded. she thanked us and exited on milwaukee. halfway to crossing the street she turned around and went "wait, what do i get?" the driver hit it into high gear and ran her over. backing over her legs once more for good measure. bloody, beaten, she dragged herself onto her transfer bus. there was a fat man wearing a blue tooth headset sitting in the handicapped seat. "goddamnit," he went "this is bullshit."
