Much like a date with a proctologist, that ended predictably.
Facebook is blowing up. Which is awesome. I love the idea that these people will all be hung by their own petard as I laugh and point while China forecloses on us. Because being right is what America is all about.
I can't hate my friends for being such utter jag-offs on the Facebook. Their party tells them that is how modern enlightened Americans behave. That is how their leader behaves. Who am I kidding, though? There would have been plenty of ha-ha-ing from the other side if the other guy had won, but I know it wouldn't have been me. I haven't and will probably never use social media to call my friends stupid for their political beliefs, but that's just me. And truthfully, I know the other guy wasn't all that spectacular either. But given the alternative...
I'm ashamed of this country. I'm ashamed of the selfishness that drives people to vote for a man who promises things he can't possibly deliver. I'm ashamed of adults who cling to the naive belief that there is a perfect world. A Utopia built on compassion and promises with no foundation in the real world. I'm ashamed of a society that refuses to grow up and shapes it's views by standing around at cocktail parties and patting other likeminded, shiftless children on the back for agreeing with them.
What a sucky day.
