Sigh. And nothing will change.
Stay off Twitter. If you don’t go near Twitter than you are already in a better spot than most.
Seriously, I’ve deleted Twitter from my phone and have stopped looking at it altogether. (Whatever I post to this blog automatically gets posted to Twitter and I’ll probably just leave it up for that reason.) There are too many ads now (of the clickbait variety), the algorithm that dictates which followers tweets you see in what chronological order is completely wacky and everything boils down to Trump. Life is too short for that. And now, you have the added benefit of people of the same political ideologies fighting about which candidate is best to take on Trump for 2020. Hard pass.
(I’m skipping the 2020 battle royale for the moment. It’s way too early for me to give a shit. And, I’ll take any of them at the end of the day over the most corrupt piece of lying shit we have ever had in government who will surely get us all killed)
If you want to make life even better, stop paying attention to the 24 hour news stations. They are terrible. And they all love Trump for being a ratings machine.
For my part, I’ve stopped political blogging mostly. And none of it matters. The GOP will protect Trump no matter what at this point.
Dublin was amazing! One of the friendliest cities I have ever been to. I won’t bore you with pics (they are in my Instagram feed on the right if you’re really interested) but I want to thank Steve for this tip about the Blind Pig. What a cool speakeasy.
Oh, and Dublin was the first place I actually enjoyed a beer. I’ve never cared for beer. Just wasn’t my thing. But tried a few different types in Dublin. Smithwick’s red ale, Murphy’s stout, and of course, Guinness. I loved them all. The hell is happening to me.
Best part about leaving the country at the moment though is you aren’t bombarded with American news. So, what did I miss?
Well, if she wanted to earn my vote, mission accomplished. Seriously, Democrats have to stop fretting about how to win an election and start making strong moves. Stop worrying about what the Republicans will do and create your own narrative damn it.
I’m headed to Dublin for a few days. Not sure I’ll have enough time to get out of the city (schedule is a bit stacked) but if anybody has some good tips of things to do in Dublin (besides the obvious, ie Guinness, Book of Kells, etc) I’m all ears.
Lifehacker had some good tips.
