I’m a Little Tea Pot Short and Fat…

and that means I can only hold so much before I overflow.  What I really feel like is a spark in Trump’s pile of leaves. If I keep gulping down gasoline I’ll burn to a frazzle.  Blurbs like the following from Meriah Nichols…

Secretary of Education (and champion of no education) Betsy DeVos is proposing to completely eliminate all $18 million of government funding for Special Olympics and then pump $60 million into Charter schools…

Blurbs like those from Meriah Nichols are making me dangerously combustible.  I scare myself when I feel so much rage.  So…I’ve unplugged my tv for awhile, although if there is a future I shall have a glaring blindspot for modern history.  Tears don’t work. Strokes won’t work, violence is what I’m fighting against.  Ignorance everywhere except at the ballot box…maybe I can try praying.

 

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
