Heads up Washington!
I hope you got the message LOUD and CLEAR

America is mad as hell and
they’re not going to take it anymore!
Regular readers could probably have predicted that I would be depressed about the election results. And I am. I have been hiding out in shock, cycling through depression and anxiety for more than a few days now, while previously prepared content auto-posted.
After a bit of intro, dumping my current feelings, I believe I am finally ready to take some forward steps (skip to the next section if you are not ready to read anything more about the election.)
I am especially concerned about what this presidency will mean for those suffering from chronic pain and mental health challenges. I fear a return to the Dark Ages of mental illness history — as well as the return of devastating, life-threatening physical illnesses previously eradicated as DT reopens the vaccination wars, just announced.
Circle the wagons and pull in your heads.
It’s likely to be a four year extremely bumpy ride.
Ready for any New Broom Pusher
No matter how you feel about the election results, the vote sent a clear message to Party Bosses, Whips, lobbyists and American politicians – regardless of affiliation.
Voters representing slightly less than half the population (and the majority of the antiquated Electoral College, supposedly those with cooler heads) are prepared to vote into office anybody else – even a man with no platform and zero political experience.
Don’t you get it, Washington?
They are no longer willing to accept empty promises, pass the buck finger-pointing, or divisive Party politics. They want legitimate CHANGE. Now!
- They want you to clean up politics, end cronyism, and stop legislating like spoiled, wealthy adolescents in school bathrooms, gathering to decide on group behaviors and who can be a protected member of your club. Or else!
- We ALL want you to start taking a long hard look at what you have been doing to the vast majority of the people of our once-great country in your relentless march toward corporate capitalism.
- We want EACH of you who are supposedly representing us in Washington to step into personal accountability for the mess in this country, making sure you include EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US in your attempts to fix it.
- We are counting on you to gird your loins and be brave enough to USE the checks and balances power still in place, before policies are enacted that prevent it.

I hope you have been paying attention, Washington
and that you have HEARD the roar.
Moving ON from here
MEANWHILE, we must find some way to soldier on despite how we feel about the results of the election and how we are impacted by what happens next. Keep reading.
