I know it's been quite quiet on my blog for a couple of days, but I had to process what was going on. I mean TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT???? What the fuck? Have the Americans now completely lost their minds? Thooooough, not looking that much better in Europe, does it?
I just cannot believe that we have actually just stepped about sixty years in the past with EVERYTHING! Every progress Obama managed to achieve will be ruthlessly squandered by this evil man called Trump (or Drumpf, as his ancestors were called...kind of loses the successability factor to it, doesn't it).
Of course as a woman I am specifically outraged - especially when I think of women in America actually voting for this misogynist, sexist asshole. I mean, how can you eradicate 30 years of female emancipation? Yeah, right, one misplaced tick will do.
But don't worry, I will not wear you down with my personal opinion about Trump like EVERYONE ELSE. If you're interested in my expansive personal insight into the topic and how I link it with - what else? - the public school system, click here to visit my Youtube channel WhateverFloatsYourBoat and watch my video on the US Election and Public School systems and PLEASE comment, I would love to hear your opinions on it.
These dark times can frustrate and desperate us; however, I believe (or want to believe) that every situation - however hopeless it seems - can enlighten and enrich us. Probably sometimes people have to vote crap in order to realise why they shouldn't vote crap.
At the moment I am learning to play the guitar and for exercise I write little songs with the chords I need to practice. Today I practiced E minor and D major and the following song came out - it might, slightly, have something to do with what is going on at the moment.
Out of Our Minds - an original piece by Angie
How could we get this far, I don't know how...
The world has just turned around, all upside down.
There is no way in or out, we seem so lost...
But can it be, no, will it be at such high a cost?
Are we out, out of our minds?
Out, out of our minds?
Are we out of our minds?
There seems no hope wherever you go, everything wiped out,
the rights for her, religious freedom, all are in doubt.
Step by step, we're going back where we don't want to be,
To a world where no one was safe, equal, free.
I am practicing at the moment and as soon as it is halfway decently played I will record it and share it on Facebook.
Thank you for reading and have a great week and NEVER GIVE UP!
