Content Alert: This post contains a round-up the day’s news and may likely contain an abundance of foul language.
Welcome to my Triggered post, part round-up, part venting portal; a place for me to post the news of the day and express my personal opinion (if I feel so inclined).
Dizzy sez: The current occupant in the White House claims to be “like, a very smart person” and to hire “only the best people”. But, yesterday, three people who worked closely with him were revealed to either be under indictment (then arrested, charged, and put under house arrest) or had already plead guilty and were flipping on him in regards to his dealings with the Russians to help get him elected. All three characters had shady dealings (with Russia) in their past before ever working on his campaign, some of those things were even reported at the time and yet, he hired them anyway. Now, he is trying like crazy to distance himself from them, but it turns out, he was friends and business partners with one or more of these characters for more than a decade; he knew who he was hiring on to his campaign. This man did not even come close to “draining the swamp.” He built it from the ground up. If this is how he intended to “Make America Great Again,” then the question is, as it always should have been: Make America Great…for whom? It’s looking more and more like the answer is “Russia”.
Dizzy sez: An individual’s gender or sex should not prevent them from serving in the US Military if they so desire. It’s patriotic. If they are willing and can do what our country needs for them to do, then I say, let them serve. Let bigots kick rocks (bigotry is not patriotic).
Dizzy sez: Truth be told, the show was beginning to drag as the Underwoods keep getting away with their heinous crimes, but finding out that Spacey committed a sexual assault on a young actor, some years ago, and got away with it and then did a totally “Frank Underwood” kind of thing, throwing the LGBT community under the bus by “confessing” to choose to “live as a gay man” to deflect from the other heinous news. Spacey is gross and I’m glad this franchise is dying, like, hopefully, his career.
Dizzy sez: Another vestige of the 80s is fading away, making me feel old…
Dizzy sez: Welp…
Dizzy sez: Ugh. I researched some of the memes and pages and realized, to my personal embarrassment, even liberals/progressives were played, not just conservatives/libertarians. Facebook dropped the ball (and that’s why I quit them and Instagram, even shutting down two active pages I was running) but, I’m willing to admit that I was taken in (and I know my friends were taken in) by Russian propaganda and I have been doing better research before I share random articles and memes on social media, these days.

My Ex stopped paying child-support, but bills still have to be paid. So, I took one of my poems & turned it into print for use in my new @cafepress shop: Thank you for checking it out!
