Been awhile. Did you ever feel overwhelmed with negativity, allowing it to permeate every thought and deed? Well good people, I'm in that zone, thanks to my fear and loathing in the northeast corridor. (h/t to Hunter Thompson.) Though I've been on facebook, continuing to rail against the swift demise of the beloved U.S.A. due to Hussein and his henchmen, even amongst my friends there with like mindset, I'm feeling despair. As so many of us did, I put my very hard earned bucks and time into a woman who moved me like no other political force before. Currently, and the jury is still deliberating, I am disheartened with her stance on issues that affect me deeply ( Middle East) and I am not ready to give her a pass to the next round.
I have no yearning for notoriety nor blog awards, and never started this journey with accolades in mind. I can't say the same for one or two other PUMAs who remind me of Hussein with their narcissistic behavior stemming from their desire to be worshiped.
This has always been about righting the wrong, and when that failed, informing the uninformed.
After some serious contemplation, rather than look for news to break or repeat the same tired mantra over and over ( sorry bloggers, h/t's without asking permission is tantamount to you needing a topic, nothing more), I'm taking a break from anger. I will still be devouring and absorbing our collective hell, but I will be one less person repeating what we are all saying...for now. My mood, plainly, sucks, and a good measure of it is attributable to the helplessness and despair I feel watching world events unfold. I will return hopefully, possibly soon, but it won't be to glorify our Secty of State. She'd have to backtrack ten-fold in order for me to stop regretting my devotion to her.
When your idol falters, your core being comes into question. That's where I am now.
Side note: Au Terrific, I owe you an answer, and I'm going to deliver on that. Thanks for your patience.
To the rest of the REAL Pumas who have done this without the need for a fan group or Huffington Post nod, I really love you. You are the groundswell that created us. We are still here, and every one of us makes a difference.
