Seasonal Affective Disorder

I’m pretty sure that’s a big part of what all of my negativity is. Although the torture of living in a town where I have to drive by a chainsaw statue of Trump in three different directions where the average age is 64 might be a part of it too. Either way, this winter has been brutal on the psyche. I need sunshine – sustained and never ending blue skies. I need to see signs of intelligent thought. I obviously need a vacation…it’s just not the sort of thing that gets handed out to people like me.

The Boomers

This afternoon, I had two baby boomer couples come in – they were wearing their Harley Davidson leathers and made it known right away that they had downsized from their big lifestyle and were no longer buyers…just browsing…they told me about how fucked up their kids had been before they sacrificed their precious adult lives to save the kids – by parking their RV in the kids driveway for a year without paying rent and helping them straighten their lives out and then moving on with no restrictions. These kind, loving, parents, who had no complicity in their children’s fucked upness – gave up some of their retirement time to help their children and grandchildren….

It’s why I can’t do this work anymore. Sitting behind a counter waiting to get paid for my merchandise and listening to this generation of selfish bullshit pukes spewing their own praise. Oh, you poor baby boomers with such fucked up children…and no responsibility for your children’s lives being fucked up.

Fuck you. You made the lives your children live. You are responsible. You created this mess. I wish I could puke on your face.

The Shadow President

If I were the shadow president or the country that had blackmail material and had handed the presidency to the president, I would want the narrative that the media is playing right now. The shadow president is being portrayed as an outsider with no power or influence and the Russians are being portrayed as enemies…for the white house – this seems incredibly convenient. For the shadow government and the shadow president, it seems prudent.
