The Social Media Diet

img_2074I’ve recently had to put myself on a social media diet in order to prevent myself from going totally insane with the stresses of life and the state of our country. I’ve had to do a little trimming of people and organizations that I follow on Facebook to prevent “Breaking News” stories from plaguing my time line.

There is only so many times a day I can care about the new Kardasian love interest or baby daddy.

And everyone knows that politics is my thing, but I have stopped following CNN and any political affiliated Facebook page. There is only so many times I can call our president an unnatural and disgusting freak of nature. And there is only so many times I can get into Facebook debates with idiots who have no moral foundation.

I just want to discover something that makes me happy and also means something to me. This blog has always allowed me to express my anger at the world, but throughout the years of writing this blog, I have never posted about what makes me really happy.

Its been a week of partaking in this social media diet and I must say, I have started opening my mind more and enjoying other endeavors. If we really think about the daily goings on in our lives, social media takes up more than five hours of our day. We are constantly checking our Facebook pages and looking for pictures from our friends and frenemies to see who is doing better at life.

We often forget that social media is a gate way into only the good moments of our lives. Who posts pictures about a bad break up or when you are taking a huge dump on the toilet? We glance at these fabulous moments and we hope and wish that some day we will have a wonderful relationship like a friend or relative, not knowing that some individuals are experiencing domestic violence and even going through a divorce. Life is more than live feeds and filtered photos. I will still continue to use my Facebook to stay in contact with friends and family, but I refuse to get so immersed in the story of the day or the intricacies of other people’s lives that I forget to live.

Blog Break

With the current state of our country, and the stresses of life, I decided to take a break from blogging. I found that constantly blogging about our horrible president and race relations in our country was causing me mental fatigue. So glad I was able to get a little rest. I’m back though, and ready for my harsh criticism and the general adventures of life.

I’m still hating my job, but at least I have one for now. I have to be grateful that I am gainfully employed, although my employers don’t really appreciate the long hours and effort I put in to my job.

I would like to add that I am utterly disgusted right now regarding our citizen’s reaction to silent protests by our athletes. They are only bringing attention to racial inequality and yet some people are making the protest about disrespecting the American flag. But anyway, I won’t go into another full rant tonight.

 

Athletes Kneeling Offends, But Donald Trump Acting Like A Dotard Is Acceptable

In the three months that I have been gone from my blog, Donald Trump‘s behavior has become more irate and disgusting. In addition to Donald Trump being a total azzhole, our fellow Americans have also demonstrated that they too harbor the same racist tendencies as the simple narcissist.

Colin Kaepernick started a silent protest some months ago, which ultimately caused him to be blackballed from the NFL. Colin clearly explained his reason for not standing for the National Anthem; however, recently, our disgusting President called the protest disrespectful to the American flag and veterans. Anyone with a brain knows that the protest was to bring attention to police brutality and racial inequality in America. NFL football players are just as patriotic as the racist and idiotic fans.

It seems that no matter the topic, Donald Trump is always willing to throw fuel on the fire as a deflection from his own poor performance as president. The situation with North Korea hasn’t been resolved because Trump keeps calling Kim Jong Un fukin “Rocket Man.” I understand that Americans wanted someone different to “drain the swamp,” but couldn’t y’all have picked someone with a brain, a smidge of empathy, and not being a bigot would have been a plus. So since you want to “make America Great Again” we are stuck with a dotard who continues having rallies after he won the presidency.

We can’t forget his recent faux pas of not giving a flying shyt about the brown Americans across the “big water” in Puerto Rico. And yes, our disgusting president actually said “big water” during a speech about the government’s slow response in assisting the Americans of Puerto Rico. He had the damn nerve to tweet that…

“…they want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort.”

Now, let us not forget that the Americans of Puerto Rico were hit with two hurricanes, not just one like Texas and Florida. Does Donald Trump not understand that people were starving and thirsty, and had just lost everything. If his orange stank azz was caught in the middle of Puerto Rico with no money or the secret service, his azz would be balled up crying in a ditch somewhere. Where is his empathy? And why is he having twitter exchanges while American citizens are dying?

He was more concerned about Black athletes kneeling for the National Anthem when he could have been working tirelessly to ensure that the recovery efforts would be sufficient after the hurricane. Both the people of Puerto Rico and Donald Trump were informed about the catastrophic effects of the hurricane a few days prior. At first, Donald Disgusting Trump and his “administration” did not address the recovery efforts in Puerto Rico, and only when the media started covering his lacking response did he try…TRY…to care. Instead of at least giving Americans a false sense of empathy, he started criticizing a Mayor in Puerto Rico who was begging the President for help.

When does the President grow the fck up? Well, actually, that is the wrong question to ask because he is too old to change. When will the Republicans get fed up with his inability to shut the fck up via twitter?  When will the Republicans get fed up with Trump dividing America and bringing us to the brink of a race war in this country? When will someone step in and force this disgusting man-toddler to stop referring to an insane dictator as “little rocket man?” Dont’ worry, I’ll wait.
