Alright, I’m just gonna lay it out for you folks: I can’t seem to find my gumption. I’m a news addict. A veritable politics junkie. Just, not now.
For the past week, I have deliberately avoided any story, link, or video that even looked like a possible link to someone gloating over the Obama win. I am crushed. Demoralized. I find myself not wanting to check the news or even write many comments. I have been commenting, yes – but I’m just not interested at the moment.
I’ve given a huge swath of the past 4 years to fighting the public menace and I think I may need to take a break. I haven’t even been talking to my family about it. They see how rabid I have been for years, in my battle against the menace. Not a single person in my family has brought up the issue of Barack Obama’s re-election. They see it. I know they can feel my despair. We’ve talked about it, but, I’ve initiated the conversations with my brothers and one of my sisters because it feels like there’s an elephant in the room – that we’re all ignoring.
Then, I get so angry that I start cussing and go off on a breathless tirade.
A major issue has been, and will likely continue to be his cynical treatment & mishandling of the attack in Benghazi. He left our people to die. Americans, serving his administration – begged for help and our President ignored them! Not only did he ignore them – he watched them on closed-circuit television, and when the novelty wore off that cock-sucker went to bed! I get fighting mad just thinking about it.
So, I’m gonna take a few days off. I’ll still be around the comments and may even post a few things, but I’m going to try and re-calibrate the sensors. Rifle season opens on the 15th and I’ll be at camp. It’ll be a welcome break.
