Looking back at my blog recently, it is literally just me sharing stories of how terrible the current administration is, interspersed with Self Care posts.
I’m basically just posting angry, while attempting to lighten things up with nonsense. I haven’t really even provided ideas for resisting.
In my defense, everything is horrible, and everyone already knows how to resist. You all already have the tools, and know the protocols. Call, write, sign petitions, protest, vote… these are the vanguards of resistance. Worse, it so far looks like resistance isn’t fucking working…
And sadly, it’s not going to get better. Because I get a daily round-up of everything that happened that day in Agent Orange’s US-America (quick side-note: I first heard Agent Orange on TWiBPrime… I think Dara M Wilson was the one who I heard use it first; so it’s not mine), I blog about most of those. Every once in a rare while, there’s only one or two things, and they aren’t worth blogging about. But more often, the round-up is long, and there’s a lot I want to highlight.
I usually don’t provide any commentary, either, because it would literally just be a very long string of cuss words.
I’m sorry to say that there’s two things I’m highlighting today: one is a WikiLeaks dump (although, after previous incidents, I’m much more skeptical of them than I used to be), and the other is about how Agent Orange disparaged President Obama for something Bush II did.
And there will very likely be more tomorrow and into the future.
All interspersed with random Self Care posts.
Oh… and I’m working on a post about ableism, and ableist words, and I’m also slowly drafting a commenting policy.
I’m actually starting to miss the times when I used my old blog for laughing, or yelling, at Young Earth Creationists, or explaining how and why I’m both an agnostic and an atheist, or answering ridiculous “questions” from theists to atheists…
I recently went back to my old YouTube channel, and watched some of those old videos… playing Steve Howe’s Masquerade, Greg Lake’s From the Beginning and Lucky Man, and Jake Holme’s Dazed and Confused (I think it was Marcus[?] who wanted to actually see me play guitar and sing?… there you go), goofing off with my brother, responding to God (yup… God had a YouTube channel… it’s gone, now, sadly), ranting about atheists trying to “claim” Einstein as an atheist, talking about what the YouTube Atheism/Theism debate meant to me… and some problematic stuff that kind of embarrasses me…
It was sorta nostalgic. I actually kind of miss all that. I don’t miss the misogyny, the racism, the homophobia, the transphobia… I don’t miss ThunderDouche, or The Amazing Douchenozzle… but I do miss not having an unqualified failed businessman with a spray-on tan occupying our white house. And I’m looking forward to the day that isn’t true.
I would very very much like to start blogging about positive stuff again, or trivial stuff like creationists… but what does any of that matter when our country is being destroyed from the inside out by a man who’s hair is trying very hard to run away from him?
