Freedom of the Press

Just because I voted for Trump over Clinton does not mean I refuse to acknowledge when the man is wrong. I wasn’t even a Trump supporter. I just chose him over Clinton.

I can admit when the person I voted for has seriously fucked up.

And Trump is doing some serious fucking up.

For starters, I have HEARD (this is hearsay) that ICE is going door to door in some cities, looking for illegals. In doing so, they are knocking on the doors of legal citizens and asking who lives there, etc.

This is a direct violation of the fourth amendment. We are *supposed* to be protected from unlawful searches and seizures (although ask anybody who has dealt with the police before and they’ll tell you that they don’t really care about the fourth amendment either) and any official (yes, even CPS) that knocks on your door asking for ID’s, information and to look around without probable cause is directly violating it.

Now onto Trump banning CNN.

I hate CNN. They’re a horrible news organization, and they are part of the reason so many didn’t take election night seriously. They are the reason everybody thought Clinton was sure to win. They didn’t investigate. They didn’t accurately poll and ask the public’s opinions. They created their own narrative, that she was winning, that she would win. However, we have a little thing called freedom of the press, and the only reason he does not want them there is because they basically make him look bad. Which I have said about all presidents, if you aren’t doing anything bad, why not speak to the press? As much as CNN sucks, they have as much right to be there as Fox News, or even slate. So again here, is a direct violation of the constitution.
This is twice that he has purposely and willingly ignored America’s constitutional rights, and that is not cool at all.

This among other things, is leading me to make the call now.

He will last two years max.

Within two to three years, you will see President Pence.

Mark my words.

I tried giving him a chance. I tried giving him the benefit of the doubt, that maybe he could be a good president, but he has definitely shown otherwise.

And I am adult enough to admit when I may have made a mistake in my choices. Not that Clinton would be any better.

Pence will though.

If Trump lasts a full term, it will shock me.

The Recluse I have become

I don’t ever leave my house.

Perhaps rather, I should say, I rarely leave my house. I do walk my children to school and walk them back home. Sometimes I walk to the grocery store and post office to get food or get my mail.

Aside from that, I go nowhere. In fact, yesterday was the first time I have left my house for a neighboring town in over a month. I had no choice but to go there (We were out of a product, and I had to call a cab to take me to get that product.).

I don’t see myself leaving to go anywhere in the immediate future (that involves leaving my small town).

I don’t know what happened. I suppose the depression and anxiety of the past year finally took it’s ultimate toll and came to a head. Leaving my immediate vicinity causes quite a lot of stress in me. In the cab yesterday, my anxiety was through the roof and I nearly had a panic attack. Thankfully, the cab driver did not speed or do anything reckless. I explained to them about my being a recluse. They seemed to understand and did their best to keep me from “freaking out.’

I don’t think it fully is that I am “afraid” to leave, however, I would be lying if I said that wasn’t part of it. I do fear leaving. There are many types of people out there that I do not trust, but it’s also, I see no point in leaving. I don’t feel a need to go out, party and have a good time when I have enough of a good time here.  I have all I need here. I have my gaming systems, my laptop, my family, food, water, etc. There’s nothing out there I need and even then when I do need something, I can always order it online where it will be delivered to my town.

I never saw myself becoming a recluse at the age I have. Most of the time, this doesn’t happen to people until they hit a higher age than I am.

But it has happened.

And I am okay with that.

No, I’m just fine with that.

The next time I see myself leaving this town will be when I leave it for good. We are discussing moving to Colorado (Brush, Colorado, to be exact.). Myself and those friends and family members that have stuck around, and in my house for the past couple of years have all realized we hate the area we are in. Too much bad has happened here and we believe it is time for a fresh start elsewhere. Somewhere that isn’t here.

Maybe then I’ll break out of my shell. Maybe then I’ll stop being reclusive. I know it’s annoying certain people, but it’s just something they will have to deal with.

The upside through all of this is I certainly get a lot of work done.

Money has been returned!

If you’re thinking that dude actually paid me back, you’re wrong. My tax return has come in and that amount includes what was stolen from me.

Sometimes life is sweet.

Now is time to put that money to good use (unlike the “True love” excuse dude used it for). Eventually, I will figure out who to help with it.

I have been too busy to update anything, but things are well. I’m pushing one year since the worst year of my life started (Death after death after death) and today, I broke out a gift that was given to me by one of the people who have passed on (our “Mohican”).

He gave me the DVD miniseries “North and South” a few birthdays ago, and I never have got the chance to sit down and watch it all. Now, I have seen it before, but I was a child and truly, as a child, this movie is quite the bore. So far, I’m enjoying it. Today will be a lazy day. I will do nothing but sit on the couch and watch the movie.

You should be here for that, Mohican.

Although perhaps you still are. Perhaps you are looking over my shoulder as I type this.

In that case, thank you for everything, and I am sorry you weren’t chosen from the beginning. It should have been you.

But you knew that.

Until we meet again.
