Big thanks and much appreciation for the latest sessions.
All the discussion, questions and picking apart of the world's political climate has helped make sense of it.
In regards to the virus ya'll are comin' down with... a few friends commented on Election Day, and day after of weird pains, cramps and headaches. I can only attribute it to the emotional fallout and the conflicting extremes of reactions to the election outcome that we were picking up through the air "waves".
Reading more about the truth of the situation and maintaining some neutrality, taking a "wait and see" approach, has seemed to help these symptoms abate. It's maintaining neutrality that's the challenge; many fervent, emotionally invested voters are adamant about profiling others as being "friend" or "foe".
Just for the record, though, the majority of the "wussy millennial progressives" stayed home or refrained for voting the presidential ballot because they ARE progressive, as opposed to liberal or neo-liberal. They were inspired by Bernie's message and not hood-winked by HRC's progressive charade and felt cheated by the DNC's dirty primary tactics. They were chastised for being naive idealists (ie. "precious snowflakes"). Through the whole campaign, progressives were told a vote for Stein was a vote for Trump. Progressives didn't see a big difference between HRC and Trump, regardless of Bernie's endorsement; if they did, they really aren't true progressives, they're liberal. But just as it is with all bleeding heart movements (clean air/water, fair representation/elections, Native American rights, clean energy, equal pay for equal work, affordable healthcare, safe work places, social security, etc... you know, all those issues that cost corporations some of their profits), they are co-opted, labeled and used by the establishment, if not just plain ignored or side-lined.
So, what i'm trying to say is that most progressives divested themselves from the election after Bernie conceded.
Just sayin...progressives should have been voting for Jill Stein if true to their conscience, and maybe those that did had THEIR votes manipulated and given to HRC? It would have been a lot easier and less suspect to move votes from her "low polling" column than from the Republican tally.
