I think I’ve lost faith in humanity. Reprehensible behavior by another contractor at the office, along with recent political events in the United States left me reeling. After seeing news coverage of a woman with no soul giving a press conference, I was totally defeated. Why are some people evil? All of this along with a lingering upper respiratory infection makes me want to take to my bed and never get out.

Taking To The Streets

The man trying to be the leader of the United States wants to end DACA. His elf was dispatched to make the announcement. I’ve emailed both of my senators and my representative expressing my support for DACA. To borrow a phrase from Kimora Lee Simmons, “I will beat a bitch’s ass” if this program is ended. Seriously, unless one of these kids is in jail, why not let them stay? Who the fuck is going to rebuild Houston? Do you think there are enough white construction workers in this country to get the job done? Have you visited a construction site lately? Spanish is the language of choice. It’s estimated that 700,000 of the 800,000 dreamers are legally employed. Why should these people lose their jobs and be deported. What is the cost of finding these people and deporting them? Why not give them citizenship? They are productive members of our society. Many are holding professional positions or running businesses. There’s a heatless prick leading this country. Two of his wives were immigrants. You’d think he’d be more sympathetic to immigrants. Clearly, white immigrants from Europe are treated differently.

The protest have begun. Student at several Denver Public School have walked out of classes. They are marching in the streets. A rally will start shortly at the Tivoli Center on the Auraria Campus on edge of downtown Denver.

RESIST!

A Sartorial Dilemma

What does one wear when one is accompanying their husband on a tour of a hurricane ravaged section of the country? It’s the sartorial question of the day. You know there’s going to be a lot of press. You want maintain your status as a style icon but you’d better not show up in anything from Dolce and Gabbana that costs $50,000. This is especially true when thousands of people in the region just lost all of their possessions. Is a Burberry trench too simple and ubiquitous? Is Vivienne Westwood too extreme? All those real housewives wear Chanel accessories so it best to avoid it. You don’t associated with that ilk and appear to be common. Perhaps something from Céline or Alaïa? Where is Jill Sander when you need her? Would something American from Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein or Theory be more appropriate? It would have to be custom because you really can’t buy off the rack at your income level. And what shoes are appropriate? Would patent leather be a good choice? Do Louboutin or Choo make a rain boot with a four-inch stiletto heel? It’s tough being FLOTUS.

Motivating The Resistance

The first pardon of this administration has been issued. It will serve as motivation to strenghten the resistance. The man running this country is only succeeding in dividing the country with the pardon and the ban on transgendered individuals in the military. He has no respect for the rule of law. He is deplorable.

A Man Sold His Soul

Does anyone remember the Columbine High School massacre in the Denver suburbs on April 20, 1999? Thirteen were murdered and twenty-one injured. Does anyone remember the massacre inside the Century 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colorado on July 20, 2012? Twelve people were killed and seventy injured. These two tragic events were orchestrated by individuals with severe mental issues. These are just two of the many examples of the uncontrolled gun violence in this country.

Do you know what happened today? The Republican controlled Congress approved a bill allowing mentally ill people to purchase guns. The bill will most certainly be signed by the President.

And yes, Cory Gardner, the Republican Senator from Colorado, voted for this bill. He voted along party lines. A man, who was born and raised in Colorado, apparently didn’t learn anything from two of most heinous crimes in this state. Mr. Gardner has sold his soul to the gun lobby.

The people will remember this in 2020.

Liar

Until this week, I don’t ever recall a time in my life where the president was called a liar on a national news broadcast by a reputable news organization. It has happened twice this week. I fully expect it to happen again.
