Folks, I've been so busy getting ready for the inauguration (disclosure: I work for the government, and like everyone else who works in DC, it's been hell) and I've been exhausted enough and busy that I haven't had time to write 7DSJ, much less anything else. And now I need to get ready for Katsucon, where I volunteer. I should have a chapter ready to go by then, but I need a break - I'm fried.
That being said, over the past few days, I've put up with a lot of shit over the phone and I rarely wax political on Fimfic. But in the past few days, I've seen the absolute dregs of humanity over what should be a peaceful transfer of power. Both sides are acting like political circus performers, and I won't even get into details (some of it is bad, so much so the first thing I did when I got home was dive for a stiff drink - and I almost never touch alcohol.) I don't care what anyone's political opinions are - the moment you cross a line of decency, your beliefs are moot.
"But the Trump administration is racist!" So entitled little shits rioting in the streets is going to make things all better? "So why not bust all the protesters?" Because some are doing so peacefully; i know, because of my friends are there doing so with a peaceful group.
Trump's in office for the next four years, and people had better hope he succeeds, because otherwise there will be trouble across the world. You don't have to like him (I don't and I didn't vote for him.) You don't have to like his policies (I don't care for many of them at all.) But everyone best hope he succeeds (where success can be defined as the world being a better place overall, regardless of how he did it.)
Because if he fails? Those riots I linked? Prepare to see them everywhere.
