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?
