Clown of the People

hedge01202017I did not watch the inauguration today. Not out of spite. But out of self-preservation. The peaceful transition of power is certainly something to celebrate.  But difficult to do under the influence of Antivan while barricaded in a pillow fort.

So I saved myself the anxiety.

Fortunately, there are limits on Trump’s power. I don’t think things will be as bad as everyone thinks if only because if we’ve learned anything this election it’s that everyone is wrong.  Just remember…

“Bad stuff happens. Then the good guys win.”  -J.K. Rowling.

The Clown of Christmas Future

oh161223According to the story it’s a vision of a Christmas to be, not a fact.

The Squirrel With the Thousand Yard Giggle

oh161128I wrote this two days after election day. I’ve tried to keep calm and keep swimming, but it’s hard.

Something’s Changed

Over the Hedge - oh161113comb_ht.tifI think I meant this as a metaphor for the election (written six weeks ago) with the idea that Obama Mongolian Bettl’ Juice Tarare was a lot like Hilary Mongolian BettL’ Juice Hickory  Flambe.

I like all the Mongolian Bettl’ Juice products. But clearly they’re not for everybody.

Clearly.

The One We Got Wrong

oh161109Oops.

To our credit, we weren’t alone. Almost no one (except for Scott Adams) got this right. And he was right because he said the election wasn’t about issues it was about fear. And fear is a powerful (maybe the most powerful) motivator. Okay, I buy that, but… I do think facts win out in the end. That end is now two to four years away. America is an experiment that never quite resolves. Yesterday we took a giant step backwards because most of America is frightened of the future. But the future will happen anyway. And trying to hold it back is a waste of effort.

Onward.

oh161107I can’t watch the news anymore. Makes me too anxious. I’m just going to hide in my cave and watch this video over and over again. babydog
