The States of Sad Times

Being in America at the moment is exhausting because of the constant chaos that is wrapped up in our federal government. The person who is causing much of the problems just happens to be The President of The United States (POTUS for short). If it isn’t the Russia scandal, its the health care crisis his party has manufactured for the past 8 years and then its today’s announcement of the ban on Transgender service people in the military. It seems more and more doors and opportunities for people on the fringes are closing.

The whole notion of making America great is one of helping people like Donald be better off. I can’t think of anyone who voted for him who is doing better than they were a year ago. Of course there are some subtle undertones of racism, bigotry and homo/transphobia. at work here. It’s really hard to believe that Trump got this far and what is more surprising is how many believed that he could do everything.

I mourn for my country. My friends we are not the greatest place to be anymore. Don’t even think that for a moment. Right now its Canada, Germany and France leading the way in the free world.

I am trying to keep hope alive as Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King once said but its really hard to. This is the States of Sad Times.

  1. I can’t bother watching the news anymore, since nowadays it’s just about the latest scandal from Mr. Trump himself; nothing about legislation is getting discussed, let alone being implemented at all. It’s unbelievable that politicians have lost their dignity since he became leader in January, and now the nation’s basically being run by incompetent people. France isn’t perfect, nor is any other nation, but it gives me more of a reason to get out of the U.S. for the temporary time being.

  2. I’ve taken to calling this fool in that house, 45 or simply that dumb fuck. I don’t even watch the news half the time anymore. Dumb fuck decided to ban trans people from the military, even though he never served in his life. The country is getting worse by the day in all honesty.

  3. We can still make sure he isn’t elected next time, however, I’m not sure if the other candidate will be much better. Even though he isn’t a good person -as most politicians are- I still think we can be the change we want to see in the world. I am afraid he might have more power than we do, but I think there are other people just as powerful as him that have better morals.
