the next four years

imgresThe message we sent to young girls (and boys) across this country is heartbreaking.  I am at a loss for words.  I am numb.  The divide in this country is so clear and terrifying.  Instead of electing a woman who has taken advantage of the system in her own way (I could write a huge list here starting with misappropriated spending thru the Clinton foundation but at least she was fully qualified to run the country and understands the delicate balance of foreign affairs.  Instead we elected someone who avoided paying his taxes for decades, a narcissist, a bully, a bigot, a misogynist, a liar, a cheat, an adulteress, a terrible business man (easy to do with cash in real estate by declaring bankruptcy several times), who doesn’t pay his employees, shuns the law and has never held a public office.

Neither great choices but we know nothing about the man who was chosen and what he truly stands for.  It is a sad day for America.  We have yet to see the turmoil and long tail of this.  We are going to hunker down today and attempt to get out of the dark hole we find ourselves in.
