Actual News Footage from January 2017

9 Nov

Sources have provided me with actual footage from the Trump inauguration ceremony.

We should have made the “orange” connection, if nothing else

Sorry. I shouldn’t have gone for the low-hanging comedy fruit but… sigh.

Ah well. Time to sack up and continue my lifelong project of leaving the world in better shape than I found it in, no matter how much of a shitshow the next four years turns out to be. Volunteering, donating stuff, time, and money, and being productive with personal and creative projects ought to help me forget about the impending apocalypse.

Maybe I’ll cheer myself up by donating blood today. I’m sure when the rioting starts there will be a lot of injuries and hence a call for it.

UPDATE: Here is an inspiring link to an article my friend wrote – in these situations, rather than give up hope, you should feel the opposite. You should feel determined to fix as much broken shit as you can. In those little fixes, big repairs happen.

Just like when I had cancer, it’s time to do research. It’s time to gather information and realize that every situation can be met with the right tools. It’s time, in short, to get organized, plan for what’s next, and lay groundwork for the rebellion.

Who’s with me?

Love,
Acha (just call me Mon Mothma for the next four years)

Read it if you’re feeling shitty. Then, when you’re done feeling shitty bit don’t know what to do with yourself, find something positive to do that will fix something, anything. Fix that broken toilet seat, sew that button back on, wash those dishes! Then, find something else. Keep going! Be useful, to yourself and others! Be the kind of American you think doesn’t exist!

It’s in your hands!

    Thanks for these words.

    Remember that last episode of Angel where Gun asked that woman, what she would do if she found out that everything she did was for nothing. And she replied that she would continue doing what she was doing, which is make her corner of the world better by her actions.

    That’s what you just said.

    When it doesn’t matter what we do, then everything we do, matters. – Angel

      Thanks! I forgot about that episode! Yes, that is absolutely accurate.
      I have my friend to thank – she told me when she woke up and saw the results, it felt the exact way she did when she was diagnosed with cancer: “All right, this blows goats, but WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT IT?” and then proceeded to kick cancer’s ass twice.
      I am going to get involved and, as you say, make my corner of the world better through my actions!

... but what do YOU think?
