What a night, eh?
That's my Canadian expression for those of you exporting out of the United States.
I witnessed a historical moment. I might say I am still feeling shocked.
But not sad.
Fear not, my friends, I will have your back. I will also fight for what is good and right. Always. It isn't a side. It is who I am.
I relished in the media anchors shitting in their pants. I had it tuned onto NBC because I hate the network, but love Tom Brokaw. He was loving this unpredictable race while his cohorts were imploding and totally expressing their liberalism all over the screen. They so did not want to put Florida up for Trump and held out until the last possible moment even when Chuck Todd said there was no way for Hillary to win Florida with his calculations. BUT the network big wigs would not have that, I am sure.
And then there was Glen Beck who almost cried on television.
I do feel sad for those who are in such deep despair they can't see the forest through the trees. That must be an uneasy feeling of heavy dread. I did want to hug one of our international students who wept. I can't imagine feeling that way.
I had come to terms with the election weeks ago and thought that if Hillary won, I would survive just like I outlasted the good and bad presidents of the past. I can't last another 4 years of this same economy though unless I want to live in a cardboard box.
Relief came to me last night when the Republicans won the Congressional seat majorities. I knew then at least we could stop any nonsense going into the Supreme Court.
And then tides changed and I saw how America spoke out.
The middle aged white male will not go unheard.
What bothers me the most is the continual swords being thrown from the left and the declaration of racism and all that is evil will prevail. Bull to the shit. Shut the fuck up. Nothing makes me more mad than someone calling me a racist or painting the town with one brush.
Have you no faith in your friends or thy neighbor?
Again, the liberals have no touch with reality. I will shove the Establishment and the Elitists right in there with them. That's all I can gather.
The good people of THE LAND are not going to let racism rise up and the office of the President will not stand for that either.
I can say I was impressed by Trump's short but very gracious speech. Maybe everyone will see a different side to him and the Hollywood sensationalism we saw beforehand will subside. He is a marketing expert and has business acumen like no other. So why didn't you think he wouldn't use it?
And no man or woman is perfect. All their flaws come out when public office or any type of celebrity gets a hold of them.
Calm your balls.
Where have all the common sense gone?
I'm OK today.
And I like the fact that the entire world is shaking in its boots and this caused a global panic. That's OK, too.
It doesn't mean anything crazy is going to happen, but they are afraid it will.
November 8th, 2016, was a big FUCK YOU to the Establishment, the Elitists, the media, and all others whom we have handed this country over to and have shit in our Wheaties.
I think I will savor my wine.
