Journal Entry – 3.31.2018

It is 6:25 AM on Saturday, March 31st.

We’ve gotten some very nice weather on the coast these past two days with temperatures reaching into the 70s.  This used to be rare but seems to happen with more frequency these past couple of years.  The climate is changing and it is too bad that many in the population of the USA are not smart enough to listen to actual scientists.

It is 3:15 AM on Saturday morning February 17th, 2018.  I haven’t slept well all night due to the salt from the pizza and large amount of sugar in the Mountain Dew I had for dinner.  Looks like it might be best to cut back on Friday pizza night.

After tossing and turning for a couple of hours I finally decided to get up, forgo Zelda and finally get a post in.  I’ve got a bunch of random thoughts I thought I’d get down.

For this post I just plan on free-writing, so it could be a bit of a ramble.

I’m very tired of the news and politics, so much so that I just want to shut it all out.  It makes me feel as though the entire country has gone crazy and we’re no longer in all this together as Americans.  America is a country where you just care about the individual and screw everyone else according to Republicans and the current President.  I really don’t like this type of thinking but since this is something I cannot control the only choice I have is to shut it out, to think differently and look for other places to belong instead of the umbrella “American” identification.

President Trump – Getting better!

I was absolutely heartbroken by the images of the chemical attack in Syria yesterday; especially by Abdul Hamid Youssef holding his dead two babies.

I fully support Trump launching the missiles at Syria and in doing so has taken action that Obama should have.  Although I was an Obama supporter he did let some international problems fester for too long without taking decisive action.

And so, I just want to say for the record that although I’ve not liked many, many of the steps the new President has taken I am behind him all the way for his actions in Syria and he has also scored other points with me as well.

The world is different now due to President Trump.  I miss the certainty and comfort of the way things were previously. Now I wake up and am anxious to see what the news will say.  At the moment the US is upsetting its allies and as for the enemies, I’m sure we’ll soon be at war.

I’m anxious for immigrants.  They’ve first banned Muslims under the guise of “extreme vetting.”  Next will come a database, deportation of Latinos and then next in line would be the Asians.  All of this has given the extreme right a lot of encouragement and I’ve started to look into those corners of the internet where they reside.  I’d like to understand them further and try to get a pulse on where things might lead.
