I hate being old and caring about politics.

I think it's a cycle that everyone goes through in their lives. Some people had Nixon. Some people had Reagan. Some people had Carter and so on. I have Trump. That's some shit timing right there. The worst part is, I get to see what everyone thinks about it due to the internet and social media ...and I'm like, "get the fuck off my lawn".... That is all.

How old you is, ya ole biddy?


I'm 54 and remember Nixon's 1st term and onward.

I started comprehending shit from Carter onward.


Easily the two best president in my lifetime is Ronaldus Magnus and the current president; Donald Trump.


Easily the two worst presidents in my lifetime were Jimmy Carter and that illegal immigrant; Hussein Obama.

Been through all of them but never cared until Obama made Trump necessary. I just think about it once and a while. ....Then I wonder if this is what everyone goes through at some point? Seems there is a well defined line between good and evil that the rest of the world just loves to fuck with. I don't care who you are or what side you're on. There is definitely dumb in the thick of it all.

At the end of the day people seem to gravitate toward idiocy thinking it's safe common ground. In reality it's a well designed trap. But to what end?

I remember when Kennedy got shot. I was young.
The way I remember it, politics have always been crazy cut throat.
The people have always been divided.
Same shit, different color, over and over.
Internet and cable TV promotes it for dollars now days.

I get that and it's how I always saw politics. But today seems different Trump is an outsider is he not? Is it politics now? If it is, please explain why he would go through this. ...Or is it something else? ...am I just in the "cycle" and at the point where I chose my demon? I see this (personally) as a choice between good and evil ....and I don't like any of it truth be known. But we all have to take a side. I'm not seeing the "in-between" choice I usually take..

I used to GAF.

Now, I do not.

I hated Clinton. I loathed Obama. I think Trump's a dipshit.

I voted for none of them, I give money where I can, and I try to enjoy life.

My anger never changed a damn thing, except making me angry.

You have to look at the bright side with politics. Yeah, Trump isn't perfect, but he's what we need right now. Plus, you could have had Hillary.

Enjoy your time in the sun now, because the liberal winter we are facing is bound to be much, much worse.

In the 50's I was a kid and went into a corner store to buy a 5 cent coke and noticed the newspaper headlines..." Ike in Landlide" I though he was killed..It was obviously election results..I was in 11 th grade when Kennedy was shot, people were crying, it didn't mean all that much to me....LBJ signed my draft notice..When I got out of the miltary I gravitated toward the hate the gov't and Nixon stance of hard core socialists that wanted to blow up shit..Then I stopped giving a shit about politics..Now I laugh at the silly shits here that get all worked up but wil never really do anything about it..Nothing changes but the faces...

Aside from in local elections, your vote is useless and the candidates arenít that different, when you look at the actual effects.

Take a deep breath, try to do good things locally and wait until enough people get off the porch.

Yup. People get all butthurt and worked up about national politics, but in all honesty you can't change it. All you can do is do the things that need to be done around you, to make the best life for yourself and your loved ones. All other B.S. beyond that is pretty much out of your control. It's like getting upset over the weather...
