#NotMyPresident – What That Means For Me

16 Nov

To CNN and anyone else who says that #NotMyPresident is the same as saying not my Constitution, I respectfully disagree and the debate ends there for me.  I have said my two cents and there is nothing you can say that will persuade me otherwise.

As I stated on my Twitter page, which is CalexitCarma @HigherNatures, “I am voting for #Calexit.  If you attack me for exercising my freedom, I will block you.  If you want to know why, reply to this tweet.”  So far, inquiries have been civil.

Now, what #NotMyPresident means for me is this and only this:

  • I will treat him with the same level of respect and give him as much a chance as those who despised, did not trust, feared, ridiculed, and organized against Barack Obama.
  • I will, in every peaceful and legal means available, mutilate his name and castrate his character every time he does something I strongly disagree with or that I simply do not like.
  • I will, in every peaceful and legal means available, dissent and organize boycotts, walkouts that target businesses that A) remain silent on matters of equal rights, or B) act or speak directly against equal rights.
  • I will be vigilant and defend the rights of other members of the human race regardless of skin, birth station, faith or ability.
  • I will invest my funds in bonds that help the states where the majority of voters made it a “blue” state.
  • I will encourage others to dissent peacefully and legally in every way that I have described above.
  • I will fly my state flag at all times.
  • I will donate my time, energy, and charitable dollars in ways that promote education and political activism in favor of humanity.
  • I will stay informed about this administration by researching through Ecosia, Google or Yahoo, and I will not give any traffic to a news site that has failed to report facts and only facts.  The pundits and pollsters who failed me are hereby treated as the failures they are and should be fired.
  • I will refer to FactCheck.org because their “About Us” indicates they stand for what I believe is good and trustworthy:  scientific data.
  • I will follow the money trail to determine who demonstrates an agenda to greedily dominate the U.S.A. and I will inform others of facts.

As I have always done, I will continue to strive to be a joy to work with, as I have always respected others regardless of skin, birth station, faith or ability.  This is who I am and nothing and no one can take it from me.

Exodus from Social Media Flame Wars

10 Nov

On Tuesday night before any news show would call the election, when it was still too close to call in most battleground states, when it was becoming rapidly apparent that something was very wrong with this picture… that is when the exodus from social media began. News reports indicate that Stephen King is among the many who are abandoning Facebook, Twitter and other inflammatory sites. Before any of this, I deactivated my Facebook and Twitter accounts on Tuesday night and, seeing the stock market falling, I went to Fidelity Investments site and placed orders to move all of my 401(k) and IRA investments from stocks to bonds. All I can do now is stop the bleeding.

Many Americans cannot stomach any more of the nonsense.  It is an exercise in madness to continue to discuss, debate, refute, post facts… we are now living in Trumpland.  It is nauseating, and for some of us, we simply cannot bear the chatter.

We thought we could make a difference.  We thought we could share factual information and persuade Millenials and Bernie supporters that Hillary was the best choice and only qualified candidate.  Now it’s too late.  The GOP has the power.  The Supreme Court will be conservative for years to come.  They won.  We lost.

The exodus is happening because millions of sane people cannot stomach this debate to continue for four more years.  We fully thought it would be settled on Tuesday night.  We were ready to sympathize.  Now, there is no sympathy for us.  Only gloating by followers of a male chauvinist pig.  America put a pedophile in power.  It is the most shameful thing that has ever happened in this country.  An admitted groper, a man who has a long history of abusing power, will receive the nuclear codes in three months, and there is nothing, not one thing, we can legally do about it.

So we get back to work, live our lives, in our states.  For me, I hang my head in shame, no longer will I identify as an American.  I am a Californian.peace-and-independence

  • Edit Nov 14:  I joined the California National Party and will vote Yes on the Calexit referendum on the 2019 Spring ballot.
