So, We Have a New President

All I can think about is how well get some appearance of normal with Joe Biden. If I were to make a list of things to expect, it would go along the lines of:

  • Not worrying about the President rage tweeting at 4 AM
  • Not being lied to in such a way I can disprove it in five minutes or less
  • Not being gaslighted at all
  • Respecting the press
  • Not siding with white nationalists groups
  • Not demeaning other ethnic groups
  • Listening to science
  • Respecting the social and reproductive rights of women
  • Believing we should all have access to a better system of health care
  • Respecting and protecting our environment instead of destroying it for personal profit
  • Building an America that can be a safe haven for those who need it

I feel like there’s a lot I’m forgetting currently, which goes to show how fucking exhausting the standing guy in charge has been. And normal will be nice, but I’m going to say the same thing I said when Obama got elected in 2008. We’re not even close to done yet. So, don’t sit there on your couch expecting a fucking handout. That’s not how this works. Continue the momentum of the past couple of years. Continue learning. Continue speaking up for those who have less of a voice than you. Put being a better human being above all else. And be prepared to fight like hell again tomorrow and in two years.
