Until Ebola breaks out.

Or there's an earthquake.

Maybe a hurricane?

God forbid, a terrorist attack.

Seriously! Look at what's going on in Washington D.C.at the moment and picture a humanitarian crisis occurring somewhere.

I've got to back away from news coverage again, clearly.

What does the Secret Service do if the FBI shows up with a warrant for the President's arrest?

1. Do not go at noon on Saturday. This is counterproductive to the whole in and out paradigm.

2. Do keep an eye on whether you get Saturday early voting in your area because while 6th district has nearly three weeks of early voting, this appears to be the only available Saturday.

3. If you use a mobility device even intermittently, bring it. I brought my cane "just in case," and was promptly offered the opportunity to jump a 45 minute line. I have no guilt; that line was about 20 minutes longer than I'm good for.

Vote early, vote often, kids!

Does wearing my FOUNDING MEMBER Nasty Woman Society hoodie to early voting in the 6th Congressional district special election constitute politicking within a forbidden distance of the polls?

Do I care? (giggle)

Treason

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

My conclusion: there be treason in progress because cooperation in suborning a national election to advance the political and economic interests of a foreign power sounds like "adhering to" or at least "providing aid," right?

Wrong, according to internet sources, not all of which are to the right. The United States is not in a state of war with the Russian Federation, so Russia is not technically an enemy of America.

First: I sense an area of cooperation between Freedom Caucus Republicans and pretty much any congress critter who supports Russian sanctions if a formal declaration of war is all that stands between the White House and treason charges, because Russia is sure as hell Not Our Friend.

Second: new round of research on how many Americans have been hung out to dry for treason during the Cold War, which was not any kind of formally declared affair.

US Attorney General Sessions has recused himself from investigations into the Trump- Russia connection. Apparently, that's too much of a distraction from gutting the Civil Rights Act.

Royal blue, reads "Founding Member, Est. 2016, Nasty Woman Society, They call us nasty because, they fear our strength," which I am wearing in part because RAWR and also ironically because 55 yo woman wearing apparel that implies woman didn't stick up for themselves until 2016.

So far, compliment in public, which is a lot better than I expected in Georgia, even though Hillary swept Cobb County.

Ugh

I'm getting really tired of social media posts about what a walking dumpster fire disaster of a human being Donald Trump is. Wasn't that clear throughout his campaign?

...over allegations that Russians have sexually explicit blackmail material on President-elect Trump.

First: as far as I'm concerned, there is no such thing as sexual misconduct between or among consenting adults

Addendum:
Especially where a wealthy boor on his third trophy wife is concerned, ie we already knew he was trash; how is this blackmailable?

I hold Donald Trump in the greatest possible contempt for his appeal to the least common denominator of nativist isolation in our lectorate. I don't think much of the people who voted for him nor of those who failed to vote against him. The allegations I'm seeing online indicate that his kinks are emphatically not my kinks and...

...that's okay.

The long list of reasons to barf or balk over the prospect of a Trump presidency should not include sexual activity with consenting adults.

When I realized Trump had won last month, I had a very strange, wholly wordless reaction that I have been trying to put into words ever since.

Best I can do:

Liberation. From caring, I mean. I don't have to care about politics anymore. I'm basically down on the beach with Charlton Heston at the end of (the only real) Planet of the Apes, staring at the evidence that my people completely fucked the world over and there's nothing I can do about it, so not much further point in caring.

Relief. At 55, I am unlikely to live long enough to see more than the opening act of the environmental shitshow that is about to unfold. At 55, I'm too "old and ugly" for pussy grabbing and too white and upper middle class and cisgendered to be part of any other vulnerable population.

My 'screw politics' is less about people electing Trump than about the people who allowed him to be elected through failure to vote or through protest voting their tender little consciences because Hillary was just 'too corrupt' or out of touch or wtf ever put people off her.

Uncle Trump is about to show us the true meaning of nasty and I don't plan to watch.
