What I’ve Been Reading

Independent:

Hillary Clinton is on course to receive more votes than any other US presidential candidate in history except Barack Obama – despite losing Tuesday’s election to Donald Trump.

The New York Times:

Bernie Sanders: Where the Democrats Go From Here

The Atlantic:

Clinton’s Popular-Vote Lead Will Grow, and Grow, and Grow

The Guardian:

My beef over Hillary Clinton’s loss is with liberal feminists, young and old

USA Today:

People are crying: It’s not because they lost a race

KKK to hold parade in North Carolina celebrating Trump victory

 

MSN:

Mike Pence might worry me the most: (although, we’re not sure who Trump may appoint yet, but if he’s seriously considering Bannon, I feel like throwing up.)  “We’ll see Roe vs. Wade consigned to the ash heap of history where it belongs.”

“While we’re choosing a president for the next four years, this next president will make decisions that will impact our Supreme Court for the next 40,” he said. “… Go tell your neighbors and your friends, for the sake of the rule of law, for the sake of sanctity of life, for the sake of our Second Amendment, for the sake of all our other God-given liberties, we must insure the next president appointing justices to the Supreme Court is Donald Trump.”

The Washington Post:

The New York Times:

2016 Election Thank You Notes

6. All our media friends. Thank you for preserving reportorial balance. You balanced Donald Trump’s proposal that the military execute the innocent families of terrorists, against Hillary’s emails. You balanced pot-stirring racist lies about President Obama’s birth, against Hillary’s emails. You balanced a religious test at our borders, torture by our military, jokes about assassination, unfounded claims of a rigged election, boasts about groping and paradoxical threats to sue anyone who confirmed the boasts, against Hillary’s emails. You balanced endorsement of nuclear proliferation, against Hillary’s emails. You balanced tirelessly, indefatigably; you balanced, you balanced, and then you balanced some more. And for that — we thank you. And thank you all for following Les Moonves’s principled lead when he said Donald Trump “may not be good for America, but he’s damn good for CBS.”

Campaign training for women.

Oh, and last but not least: This. Because I am a lover of science fiction and at times, I like to escape this world and move into another one, even if it’s in outer space and the end of life on earth is the catalyst.

Please note: I am going to be posting more political stuff here. I hope people don’t mind. I’ll continue to write personal shit here as well, but I can’t deny that this election is on my mind. I am worried. I’m hopeful and inspired but I am also very worried. I’d take it to Facebook, but Facebook has become intolerable lately and some people seem to be at war with one another. I can’t go there anymore. It’s an echo chamber; no one is listening to anyone anymore. You know that scene from the movie Poltergeist where they open the door and all the toys and furniture are floating around the room in a state of chaos? That’s sort of how Facebook looks to me right now. So I’m going to stop opening the door for a while.
