One Hour, Fifty Years

This is so me! As I adjust to DST, I think it’s bedtime when 7 o’clock rolls around. 😉 this may be a useful coping mechanism for tomorrow, Election Day.
I’ve already voted early, and while may parents always felt it was gauche to say who you voted for (I have no idea why) I can proudly say that I voted for Hillary Clinton. Not that my vote will matter much, because this conservative red-neck state I live in will go to Trump. Still, it made me feel better.

Tomorrow I won’t be online, watch tv, or listen to the radio. It’s just too upsetting. So instead I’m going to drink a glas of wine, listen to music, soak in a bubble bath, and real a good book. Oh yeah, and fall asleep at 7:30. 😊

In the words of Andy Borowitz, “Stopping Trump is a short-term solution. The long term solution, and it will be more difficult, is fixing the educational system that has created so many people ignorant enough to vote.” There are a multitude of reasons why Donald Trump should never, ever, ever be elected president of the United States, but I fear that simply defeating him at the ballot box will not be enough to stem the tide of emboldened racism and bigotry that seems to have affected our society at large.
