We are drowning in cynicism! Cynicism is toxic. It kills motivation. It turns people against each other. It stops conversation. It erodes trust. Cynicism is killing our democracy!
Didn’t vote for Clinton, so you pissed away Obama’s last Supreme Court nomination. Now the Pussy Grabber could be looking at one or even two more nominations sealing a conservative majority on the Court for a generation. We could lose every gain we’ve made during the past 60 years. Didn’t vote for Clinton. Are you happy now?
I’m reviewing Katy Tur’s “Unbelievable” in three parts! It’s that good! Fantastic treatment of the campaign, covering a campaign, being a reporter, and being a human being caught up in the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s gaslighting narcissistic abuse meat grinder. Katy comes out on the other side stronger and better for it… and you will, too.
Clinton’s book is about sexism and intimidating women. Tur’s book is about sexual assault. How many women have experienced sexual aggression? How many men have committed sexual aggression?
How you viewed the condition of the country probably determined your vote. If you saw the country as doing OKAY, you probably saw the Ol’ Pussy Grabber as too big of a risk. But if you saw the country has going in the wrong direction, you were tempted to take a chance on the Ol’ Pussy Grabber. What does behavioral economics, loss aversion, and risk seeking tell us about 2018?
My good blogging buddy, Shmaltz, is collecting opinions about the 2016 election via a survey. Be chum, be a pal, be a sport, and help her out, why don’tcha?
