It’s time for me to take a break. I’m not even logging in to Facebook or Twitter to say I’m taking a break. I’ve scrubbed my posts as much as possible from both sites, set my profile to a blank png, and deleted the apps from my phone.
The first two weeks of the Trump presidency has just been too much; too many alternative facts, too much hubris, too many good people overlooking the obvious red flags.
I don’t wonder how bad rulers come to power anymore. It’s not that good people stand by and do nothing. They’re the family of the alcoholic enabling the behavior.
‘Not saying I won’t log in ever, but it’s going to be a while. In the meantime, I’m looking for real world places to pour my energy into to counteract this river of crap that is flowing down from the top of our country.
Edit: Irony of ironies… I’m using Facebook comments on my blog. Wheee.
