On Being Unable to Reach the Fifth Stage of Grief

Excellent thoughts and reaction to the election from an American ex-patriot

Buffalo Schnitzel

I felt this election in my bones.

I’ll be honest–this is the first political race that I’ve ever lost sleep over, that affected my mood, that made me feel uncontrollably combative towards the ‘other side’ even when I tried very, very hard not to. I know I’m far from alone in this.

I desperately wanted to be an activist–if we were in the States, I can guarantee I would have donned my very own coordinated pantsuit and gone door-to-door, making quite the impassioned case.

Even though I once promised myself to avoid all political talk on Facebook and stick to family pictures or light updates on the state of my being, for the past month or so I just couldn’t help myself.

My Letter To Media Outlets Regarding Their 2016 Election Season Coverage

Dear Media, DT is a liar, a con artist, a bully, dirty tricks expert etc, but you enabled him by letting him get away with constructing his huuuuge pile of manure.

Those Who Would Oppose the Crimson King

This allowed plenty of time to shake off my evening’s activities from the night before. Reports had been streaming across the wire showing noticeable protesting going on in various U.S. cities since it was announced Donald Trump had won the Presidential election. This protest would be Indy’s initial contribution to the politically progressive backlash against Donald Trump. I remembered a time I followed protestors camped out on Broadway and Colfax in Denver, Colorado, which had been a perfect study of modern day rebellion. I may have been handed another live example of society in revolt; time will tell. This may be only the beginning, or this thing might die out quick…that’s up to the citizens protesting.
