|11:26 pm - a quote for the times|
I heard a Chinese quote / adage the other day...something that goes like if you shit on your own doorstep, you're bound to step in it. After the stuff that happened in Charlottesville this past week, it seems appropriate to mention this. Thanks again, Trump.

|09:42 pm - Un-fucking-believe..|
..that after Comey's testimony yesterday, that ANYONE in their right mind could deny that the president has possibly (but let's be real, quite fucking probably, as in like with almost 100% certainty) committed the crime of obstruction of justice. IT IS ALL LAID OUT THERE RIGHT BEFORE YOUR GODDAMN EYES. And you know what's funniest? When you watch the Orange fucking Cheeto supporters defend their little Cheeto man, you can see their soulless little eyes and hear the almost-silent subversion of the truth in their voices, and you can tell that they are lying to themselves as they are trying to defend something calculably indefensible. Hilarious.

It aggrieves me how so many people do not see reality as it is. The Cheeto was not that GREAT of a conman, and yet, about half the country was duped. I could see through his lies from 1,000 miles away. The only thing that propelled him to his position was WHITE ENTITLEMENT. There, I said it. Never have I seen someone reek so much of entitlement in all its forms...white entitlement, male entitlement, and entitlement of the ridiculously wealthy. And there are still people saying that Obama was saying and doing the same things that Trump was doing, like comparing the two is not like comparing apples and oranges. Are they kidding me?
Unfortunately not. And the people who need to open their eyes the most are the ones that are most affected by his new proposals to slash programs such as health care, food stamps, student loans, and disability payments...to the tune of $4 TRILLION dollars, while ramping up spending on unnecessary things...like a wall for instance that will cost approximately $1.5 BILLION, as well as border security for $2.6 BILLION...that won't keep anyone out. Why do I even keep up with the news..all it does is depress me every day. And desensitizes me to shock. I don't like this chipping away at my soul. And I never liked his insipid normalization of violence and misogyny. And yet people were able to look past it...for what, a tax break, a chance at getting more government contracts, a chance that he'll be favorable to businesses and that the stock market might go up? Was it worth it to sell your vote to the devil for a little bit more money in your pocket? At the expense of human lives? Outrageous. Completely and utterly outrageous. And something I do not forgive.
I ask you - at what cost did you vote for this man pig? At the cost of racism, at the cost of men looking down on women righteously feeling them up, at the cost of a terminally ill person being unable to see a doctor because they cannot get insurance due to a pre-existing condition, at the cost of people conflating freedom of speech with freedom to say whatever the hell they want because goddammit they have a right to say whatever the hell they want, whenever the hell they want, regardless of who is listening to them, even if it's racist, or misogynistic, or derogatory as shit. Because that's their fucking freedom of speech and no one can take that God-given liberty away unless they pry it from their cold dead fingers. Yeah, that's what you voted for. A shitty ass future where white male entitlement thrives with impunity. THANKS!

|11:57 pm - Fox News Is A Sham|
Watching Fox News tonight for kicks and it makes me want to vomit a little in my mouth. Tucker Carlson Tonight Show is pure drivel. People who work for Fox, including this annoying prick Tucker Carlson, are the densest fucking folk on this earth. These are the people who will drink the poison kool aid for their fake fucking Messiah. Spin the fucking news so that left is right and up is down. God if you do something, can you please just do it well?

I thought it was supposed to be country over party, Republicans?
Are you ever going to get the balls to impeach this sham of a president?

#NEVERMYPRESIDENT - that is my anthem. that is what I have been saying from the very beginning, and so far, it has not rang false. The call has become even louder inside of me with all the fucking bullshit that Trump and his administration has rained down upon the American people.
You know what is really funny to me? If Hillary were president and even was accused or did HALF the shit that he's been accused of doing or has done, she would have been fucking crucified already #doublestandardmuch

|01:26 am - Lightbulb dimly flickering in my head..|
So now I've come to the realization why logical, sensible things like gun control has not happened, and why Trump has not been impeached or reproached by the establishment Republicans. I think a significant minority of the country is just fucking crazy. Yeah, I understand that it's nearly half the people who voted for Trump - but not all of them were crazy. Some of them had their reasons, most of which I would classify as single-issue voters. For example, someone in my husband's family voted for him because she had a government job and she thought he'd be better for her since he seemed to be more open to getting rid of some of the rules that hampered her job like with government contractors. Mainly, it was selfish. So yeah, the selfish people aren't crazy. But what's scary is the alt-right - what I term the real crazies. They're a non-dismissable group, regardless if they're a minority. They're loud and they're crazy. And some of them are in the fucking White House because of stupid Orange Cheeto. And some of them pop up here and there too in the Republican Party (e.g. Sarah Palin).
However, I digress. The whole point of this post was to say I realize now, more so than ever before in my life, how many fucking insane and/or ignorant people there are out there. And NO FUCKING WONDER good, logical things have not happened. Because of those people (even before Trump). Even the single-issue voters are in that category and I condemn them still because there was just SO MUCH you had to look past to cast your vote for that fucking idiot. What with the "pussy-grabbing," the racism, the demeaning attitude to everyone, the nonstop disrespect and word vomit that he splattered all over the American people. Yeah, sorry not sorry - you don't get a pass either. You don't get a pass for making the worst decision of your life - one that not only affects yourself but millions of other people. So yeah, pretty much fuck you too. I think I have every right to be angry about this bullshit. And I think I'm being pretty fucking logical and sane to be angry because all this shit AFFECTS MY LIFE. But God, how disappointed I was in America, especially the people who make up his base, the people in rural, red states - what level of ignorance and/or insanity you need to have voted for that fucking prick - and there are SO many of you. I pray that you will realize your mistake, even partially. Please. Please use some logic to guide your mind - when someone does something illegal in public, they should get punished. Cheeto is running wild doing illegal things and he's not getting punished. He needs to collect his dues. I am patiently waiting, especially so for the AHA(!) moment for the establishment Republicans to wake the fuck up and realize what a monster they've endorsed. And how they've already failed the American people and that they need to start bringing that monster down.

|10:11 pm - Calling BS|
I don't understand how to not feel angry about what's going on with the institution of the American presidency right now. I just don't. I went through various stages of grief after Trump the Orange Cheeto got elected, but now it's just pure anger. What with his dealings with Russia which are ILLEGAL (which no one seemed to care about prior to the election but now the reality of the sinister allegations are finally sinking in) and with some of the terrible, terrible confirmation picks (Betsy DeVos for the Department of Education <- this one makes me just cry inside for every kid in this nation, Ben Carson for the Department of Housing and Urban Development <- a self-hating black man who sneers at the poor, Scott Pruitt for Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency <- an ally to the oil industry who denies climate change is the steward of our environment), and Steve Bannon for the National Security Council, who brings white supremacy to have a seat at the table. The Cheeto is seeing that his lies are going to implode on him. His strategy for bullying and intimidating and discrediting will not keep up - America is not a fucking game show, and the American people are not all fucking dunces. And today, with his first press conference as the President, what does he do but be the giant fucking dick that he always has been? He was totally disrespectful and rude to April Ryan, a black reporter from the American Urban Radio Networks in Baltimore, asking her to set up a meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus in a derogatory manner. She repeatedly tells him no, and that she's just a reporter. It's not her fucking job to set up meetings for you, you prick. Her job is a REPORTER - to REPORT news - to be at your fucking press conferences. Her job is not to be your damn secretary. YOU HAVE OTHER PEOPLE WHO WORK FOR YOU WHO WHOSE JOB IT IS TO SET THOSE MEETINGS UP YOU DICK. Unbelievable. This is how you treat every fucking person who's a minority - like they're in this secret clan and they all fucking know each other. Just because I'm Korean doesn't mean I know every fucking Korean in the United States. I would be so offended at that comment - and I am on behalf of her, a fellow woman and a fellow minority. That shit is just not right.
Besides hating on the Orange Cheeto, I also have a newfound hatred of Republicans, particularly the establishment Republicans who have a seat at the White House table. The thing I hate worse than ignorance might be total fucking incompetence. If you have a job, do it right or get the fuck out. To every Republican close to this monster, to every Republican who is not mentally incapacitated but doing jack shit for our country, you are a disgrace to your parents and to your children. To back that Cheeto Monster up, even by silently complying, is fucking treason right now. I hope you can live with yourself, and that you can sleep soundly at night. One quote that has been running through my head lately a lot is the scene from The Departed where Mark Wahlberg's character berates someone for not setting up a camera in the back of the building to get a view from every angle of the drug sting, and thereby causing the sting to fail in part since one of the parties get away by boat in an area where the guy had not put up a camera. Mark turns to the guy and says: "I'm the guy who does his job; you must be the other guy." The Republican senators and statesmen right now are "that other guy" - that guy who does not do his fucking job. Your job is to UPHOLD the Constitution and to PROTECT the American people, to be a voice for the voiceless, to carry the weakest among us, to try to alleviate things for the disadvantaged, and to be a steward of democracy and the democratic process. The Cheeto goes and violates the Constitution and they do nothing, they say nothing. And to me, that means they are just as complicit in the crime. Not only that, they are not doing their job at all. This is your fucking job - you are getting paid to do this. It shouldn't be the American people's job to be outraged and have to call our senators all the damn time when we see a violation or an injustice - this is your JOB. Get that through your fucking heads. And more than other jobs, this is one to be taken very seriously as a lot of people are entrusting you to be that check and balance against an oppressive President, one who is trying to tear down our democracy. You should be thinking about how to combat these evils 24/7 - and yet you sit there silent and smiling, and even defending him. I hope there's a special place in hell reserved for you.

|09:14 pm - It's been around a week..|
So...it's only been a couple of weeks since Trump became president but boy has there been A LOT of crap; but really, what could you expect from someone as terrible as him? Let's see, protests have been flaring up all over the country, including the biggest in US history (women's march, go women!), DeVos got confirmed as Education Secretary, Muslims got banned from traveling to the US from 7 random Middle Eastern countries (not the top 3 that Trump has business dealings with, however), Yemen rightfully kicked the US out from doing antiterror ground raids due to civilian casualties (from Trump fucking up his intel), the wall across the Mexican border will go on (like some horrible neverending nightmare) and will be funded by American taxpayers (he says that it will be funded by tariffs on Mexico which is a joke because it will drive up prices for American consumers)....did I miss anything? Oh and Bannon got promoted to be a member of the National Security Council and is the Puppet Master of the Third Reich. I shouldn't say that last part, he is only trying to make America racist as shit. Needless to say, I condemn all of the Republicans (except maybe not the two who tried to oppose DeVos's nomination) and every single person who voted for Trump, regardless of their reasoning. You failed us all - you failed not only our great country, but you failed yourself and your family. In all outward appearance, I will work with you and I will be a decent human being to you since there are so many of you, but I will NEVER forget what you did. How you were able to swallow his bag of lies down your throat is beyond me - how did you not choke on it? How were you able to look past the vulgar comments and even more serious implications of sexual assault like "pussy grabbing"? ESPECIALLY for anyone who has a daughter in their life, how could you have failed that girl or that woman so? Not to mention his blatant racism. It was unimaginable to me that someone like this should be, could be, a President, let alone the President of the United States of America, founded on principles of racial and religious equality. The greatest lesson I have learned from all of this is to NEVER take freedom or liberty for granted, stay eternally vigilant. This will be a rough, rough 4 years, but I am happy for the lessons that I learned. I am becoming more politically aware and politically active.
