OK! Needless to say just about everyone I know is extremely upset with the results of the election. Most people view it as an end to out democracy as we know it. For those who deny this, well think again. Trump has not even been sworn into office and he has already fired all of our ambassadors. He is busy with his cronyism. Sticking the wealthiest, least experienced white men in positions of authority, leaving us vulnerable on every level. When people talk about impeachment, think about who we are left with…Mike Pence? This person wants to administer electro shock treatment to LGBTQ teens.
This show is extremely important and deserves attention. What gets me is the fact that we have come so far and now we are fast tracking into a very dark period of time. I never thought I would live to see Gay Marriage become legal in my life time. Hopefully this as well as birth control will not go away.
Let us all stay tuned…the next 4 years should be a very rocky road.
