Ahh, Presidential Love and Admiration

 

I’ve been crying, traumatized, ill, depressed, and once I even vomited at the current state of our nation. Now, aren’t you so so happy to hear from me?

NO! I imagine not. In order to subdue my current state of shock I turned to designing memes. I find that they ease the torture my current government is inflicting on all Americans. At least temporarily. The main compensation I get from creating memes is the relief I feel from the hateful rhetoric being broadcast from the White House and Congress. And oh what a relief it is: Enjoy!

“You say you want a revolution” –mm7 Lennon /  McCartney

Hey Millennials you can rant and rave and dis Baby Boomers all you want, but until you demonstrate that you are capable of making changes that are crucial for our country’s existence, then stop complaining.

mm5And as for the Baby Boomers who think they gave birth to lazy, social-media-crazed children, stop complaining too. Instead encourage them to become a part of their country’s much needed progress. We can’t do alone, again, we need our children to work with us and take over and do a much better job than we did.

Three Generations of Griping! What Exactly Have We Learned?

Said to Millennials by Baby Boomers Said to Baby Boomers by The Greatest Generation
BB-“You’re an idiot!” GG-“You’re an idiot”
BB- “You can be anything you want to be when you grow-up. Yes even President of the U.S.” GG-“You can be anything you want to be when you grow-up. Yes even President of the U.S.” However Barbara Bush and Mary Anne MacLeod Trump should never have added that last bit.
BB-“You’re on the phone too much, put it down and look at me when I’m talking to you.” GG-“Next time I hear a busy signal when I call home I’m ripping the phone out of the wall.”
BB-“Don’t you ever take a picture of where you are instead of a selfie?” GG-“What do you mean you put seven people in the VW bug and drove around all night?”
M-“I need a car when I turn 16.”

BB-“Okay sweetie.”

BB-“Can I have the car tonight, Dad?” GG-“No, your sister asked first.”

 

BB-“Why can’t you do anything right?” GG-“You can’t do anything right, ever.”
BB-“Get off that phone and read a book.” GG-“Turn off that radio and read a book.”
BB-“I would like you to go to college, but you’ll have to pay for most of it yourself.” GG-“You will go to college and we’ll pay for it.”
BB-“You’ve got it too easy.” GG-“You’ve got it too easy.”
BB-“Yes darling you should always question authority.”

M’s BB Teacher-“Questioning authority does not mean asking, ‘Why do we have to read this stupid book.’”

GG-“If you get a draft notice you’re going to fight in Viet Nam.”

BB-“Why should I fight in yet another immoral war, created to help boost the economy?”

BB-“You must vote. my generation worked hard for the 18-year-old right to vote. Make your vote count.”

M-“Yeah, well that didn’t work out did it?”

GG-“You cannot vote at 18!”

BB-“Let me see. . .I can die for my country at 18, but I can’t vote for the men who are sending me to my death?”

M-“What? After all these years women still aren’t paid as much as men?” Didn’t you march for that too?” GG-“You’re what? A Feminist?”

“This Be the Verse”

They fuck you up, your mum and dad.

They may not mean to, but they do.

They fill you with the faults they hamm8d

And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn

By fools in old-style hats and coats,

Who half the time were soppy-stern

And half at one another’s throats.

Man hands on misery to man.

It deepens like a coastal shelf.

Get out as early as you can,

And don’t have any kids yourself.- Philip Larkin’s 1971

Even though we totally agreed with Philip Larkin we obviously didn’t heed his advice and went on to populatemm10 America with the largest generation ever. Millennials sadly don’t realize that we had parents too. Our parents were the first generation to actually have children because they wanted to and not because they could employ them as farmhands.

This is all thanks to Dr. Spock, no, not that Spock. Dr. Benjamin Spock who wrote excessively on how to raise your children with hugs, laughter, praise, fairness, and lots of love. His first book was published in 1946, the year after WWII ended and the year before babies boomed all over the world. His book was my bible and I used it for my daughter’s first two years and beyond. He was so right-on about everything she did that I suspected she sneaked into my room and read the passages.

The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care (hardcover).jpg

I remember that the Greatest Generation believed that he knew how to raise children, but had no business at our Viet Nam War protests. He argued that the war was killing the generation he raised, nurtured, and cared about most. And this was true, 58,000 Baby Boomers perished in that war, leaving a huge hole in my generation and the Greatest Generation’s hearts.

So you see Millennials each generation has their greatness and their downfalls and even their pitfalls.

 

 

The big questions is, “What will your greatness be?

How about-

Ending Global Warming

Making the U.S. a progressive state

Running for office and filling the shoes of the ancient men in GOVERNMENT

Selling the beautiful idea of a SOCIAL DEMOCRACY

Creating a social democracy in the U.S

Free and Equal Education for all schools (After all what part of educating the masses repulses the Republicans? Oh yeah, the educated masses scare them to death, see what it did for the Boomers in the 60s and 70s)

Free Quality Health Care

Paid time off for giving birth for both partners

Paid time off to care for sick children and ailing parents

Strict Gun laws

True belief that war and violence is NEVER the answer

Peace and negotiations as an alternative to WAR

Inexpensive quality CHILD CARE

Increase pay for our workers over CEOs, CFOs, and POLITICIANS

Redefine and re-fabricate our Justice system and prison system

Increase time off for workers

Lessen the greed from Corporate CEOs, CFOs, and politicians

 

 

 

 

 

 

WE WERE NO WHERE NEAR THE KITCHEN, YESTERDAY!

A Woman’s Place is Smack Dab in the Middle of a Revolution

In all 50 states and 40 nations people marched in solidarity for, well everyone’s  human rights and against the new POTUS.

In Boulder the line to get on a bus went around the block, and it was only 6:00 am. Full busses, with people standing, left every 15 minutes. Thank you Colorado RTD!

The Women’s March on Denver began at 9:00 am, (I’m in there somewhere!) 40,000 signed up on line, over 100,000 showed up.

Tens of thousands of people rally in Civic Center Park for the Women's March on Denver on Jan. 21, 2017.

The energy, enthusiasm, and common frustration was evident throughout  the day:

And then there were signs I couldn’t photograph:

SUPER, CALLOW, FRAGILE EGO TRUMP IS QUITE ATROCIOUS 

WE SHALL (NOT) OVER COMB

TOUPEE OR NOT TO EQUAL PAY

NOW YOU’VE MADE GRANDMA MAD 

DON’T IMPLY THAT I DON’T HAVE EQUAL RIGHTS

The speakers spoke to everyone in the crowd encouraging them to stay strong. They spoke for five minutes each and didn’t spare any words. There was music and dancing, and lots of standing and singing and believing in what we can accomplish when we all work together. Thank you organizers, speakers and all who attended.

Why this day sucks?

  • The U.S. is swearing in a man who
    • Abhors 51% of the population21454373fadf66a0f3a33326b08ea954
    • Appointed a white supremacist to the White House (Steve Bannon)
    • Appointed Generals to his cabinet (can you say coop? “Civilian authority should control the military in order to preserve constitutional government” *)
    • Thinks people can make money and become RICH by privatizing education (Did he even go to school?)
    • Has a vocabulary of a fifth-grade boy (which is a real insult to fifth-grade boys)5th-grade Sorry guys!
    • Never read the United States Constitution (or even a book)
    • Defies the U.S. Constitution over and over and over and over. . .again
    • Is a heinous embarrassment not only in our country, but throughout the entire world
    • Protesters burn a U.S. flag and a mock flag with pictures of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump outside the U.S. embassy in metro Manila, Philippines January 20, 2017.       REUTERS/Romeo Ranoco

  • The only election in our country that does not adhere to the popular vote is the office of President of the United States. (Say What?) download-1
  • No other democracy in the world ignores the popular vote, except the U.S.A.
    (“How do other countries elect presidents without an electoral college? Pretty easily.” Washington Post David Weigel, December 20, 2016
  • The millennium is only 17 years old and already two, TWO, repugnant white men, who defied the popular vote, were sworn in fraudulently. (Gee, I wish my daddy had nominated the Supreme Court so that I could be president!)
  • My vote doesn’t count, contrary to what my civics teacher told me and what I told my civics classes. (And I thought I was a good teacher-Shit!)
  • He nominated a racist (Jeff Sessions) to be our country’s main law enforcer (who will never, ever, question white police who shoot unarmed black men, or their police departments. He needs to read the AG’s report on Ferguson, Chicago, Baltimore, and on and on and on. . .oh, but wait, he doesn’t read either)

This list could be a dissertation on the incoming president’s incompetence, his idioms, his ignorance, and on and on and on-But I’ll stop here and get on with tomorrow!!

Why does tomorrow rock?
