Taking a Break?

So I’ve had some people email me to see if I’m all right, mostly since I haven’t posted since July and most of my posts are the result of doing something physically painful to myself. Feelin’ the love, y’all.

No, I’ve been on an intentional hiatus. I’ve got a crap ton of work to do and I have two kids involved in fall sports/activities, and… okay, wait. That’s a lie. I mean, it’s not a lie that my kids are keeping my busy, but it’s not the reason I haven’t been posting.

I can’t do the politics right now. I just can’t. If I ever let myself sit down and post about the state of politics right now, Congress will repeal the First Amendment just to shut me up. There will be censorship boards again, and I will FAIL.

So I’m coming back after this shit’s over–assuming the world wasn’t set on fire during the night of November 8th–and will get back to posting ridiculous crap. In the meantime, I leave you with this important message:

Voting is an important right, and it’s a massively important part of the whole American process (even when it doesn’t feel like it). And right about now you’re thinking that I’m gonna remain neutral and just encourage you all to go out and be a part of democracy next month. You’re so fucking wrong.

Voting just for the sake of voting is for fuckheads. Vote for Hillary. I swear to all that’s holy, vote for Hillary. Fuck Trump and his hatred-inducing regurgitated diarrhea. Fuck the notion of “protesting” by voting for one of the two douches pretending they still have a dog in this fight, you’re only going to divide the vote and give the Trumpkin the victory. Fuck writing in your dog’s name, even though it’s sounding better and better by the minute. Fuck sitting at home on your ass and avoiding the whole mess because standing in line is inconvenient.

Don’t be an asshole just because you’re allowed to by law. Save us all, do us all a favor, and oh yeah, I delete any comments on my blogs that piss me off because First Amendment only applies to the Constitution, not the blog that I pay good money to maintain.

See you in November, I hope.

  1. Oh woman, I flipping love you! (That’s straight talk, btw lol.) I always smile when I read your blogs bc you’re so very real. It’s refreshing, whether I agree with you or not. Thank you for being you, and never forget us: your readers, your friends, your admirers even at times.

  2. People I thought were intelligent humans have decided to vote for the devil – I’m glad you’re not one of them.

    Some of them are long-time bloggers I follow, always skirting their posts about politics.

    It’s almost impossible now – you’re well out of it.

    I think the phrase ‘loose canon’ has been looking for its soulmate since the days of sailing ships. And the media keep trying to be ‘balanced’ – when one end has a ping pong ball on it, and the other a wrecking ball.

    Shutting up now.

  3. I read this post while holding my breath. “Please don’t let her say something stupid!” “Please GOD, don’t let her say she supports the monster-who-shall-remain-nameless.” Thanks for not letting me down. Thanks for not letting down our nation. I’ve been avoiding my own blog because how can I write anything if I feel like my hands are tied and my mouth has been taped shut. Avoid politics, my polite self tells me, but my conscience has been screaming at me to “woman-up” and tell it like it is…And why do I feel like I’m starting to write my next blog post? Thanks for leading the way.

    • You’re the best! But yeah, I was in the same boat. Just don’t go over to the blog because it’ll just “start something.” Then I remembered that I started something the day I posted about my goldfish changing colors, and I got called a “”fucking asshole” for it. Seems we just can’t win, we might as well do what we want!

      Can’t WAIT to read what you have to say about it! (Put a link in here so we can ALL enjoy it!)

Surely you have something to say about this...
