Life was good during the Obama years – we were on the mend after the disastrous Bush / Cheney / Rumsfeld “House of Evil” followed by economic carnage. I figured that nothing could ever be worse than that. Until 2016. The worst “President” ever in the history of the US is presently holding the US hostage in a way I could never have imagined before.

One easy thing to predict is that as long as the GOP and Trump are in charge – you will get something even worse than the Bush years in the end. I’ve had this feeling of dread since The Great White Hoax slithered into office.

I do understand how those with money and who understand how the stock market is manipulated by promises of eliminating regulations and giving the rich tax breaks – paid for by screwing the middle class – what is even left of it. But this short term “money grab” will result in long term chaos and a disintegrating USA. The “I Got Mine” class will one day have their “oh shit” moment.

Oh well, what can we in the middle class do but vote. I gave up praying many years ago – I find solace in the bizarre, absurd and gothic these days. That and playing guitar and mandolin – I suppose the arts is a place of refuge. I do understand how times affect artists and their art.
Oh well, whatever gets us through the rough spots I suppose. I’ll never say “It can’t possibly get any worse” like I did during the Dubyah Days – boy was I wrong . . .
