Watching tv tonight…

I was surprised to see so many attending the Trump rally in Tulsa waving signs that said “Make America Great Again.” I thought these people were supposed to be for Trump, not against him. Apparently they see a need for a return to greatness after Trump’s current racist anti-democratic reign!

Again?

T= Therapist

T: Back so soon, I see.

Me:  If I don’t go forward I’ll be sucked back.

T:  Still talking metaphors.

Me:  I can’t mess with lah-ti-dah.  This is real!

T:  What have you done for you?

Me: I’m meeting my goal with the booklet.

T: Has that helped?

Me: At least it’s given me a string from day to day.

T:  Good for you [us].

Me: But then I read he was mad at the Post Office for not charging more!

T:  Pure evil?

Me: Yes…And before you ask, there’s something else I’m going to try.

T: Oh?

Me: My arms are getting skeletal and as much as I hate it, I’m going to try and exercise maybe 5 minutes a day.

T:   You should be able to have a success with that goal, also.

Me:  But I’m concerned about my growing paranoia.

T:  Growing?

Me: Yes, I can see myself becoming suspicious of just about everybody and every thing.

T: Is it paranoia or the truth?

Me:  It’s even worse if paranoia is the truth.

T:  Hmmn…You’ve already said that you won’t outlive the effects of this plague.  Can you make just a little fun for yourself in your final days?

Me: I’ll certainly have to meditate on that…

 

 

Glad I don’t watch football anyway…

In a stunning move on Wedneday, the NFL caved to pressure from Donald Trump and conservatives, adopting a policy that required players to stand during the national anthem.

Puzzled, Troubled and Questioning

Published January 6, 2018 by Nan Mykel

I’d like to hear from you about the dichotomy between what we say about empathy, especially for mentally confused individuals and how much glee most everyone takes in belittling and personal name-calling back the president. Sure, he hurts people. It’s like what we do at war: dehumanize the enemy so they become a non-human being.  I’m really talking about myself. I do it too, but every now and then I flip and experience what he and his family must feel about being insulted back by everyone.  Don’t get me wrong; I’m a Democrat, but I just wonder how our two different behaviors and belief systems can occur together.
