No, people, this isn’t going to be a funny post. It will not have my usual bits of humour in it. This is serious stuff.
While it hasn’t been confirmed yet, it looks like Trump will be our next president. If that happens, it is the end of this blog, and quite likely my wife and I. Hyperbole? Nope, and here’s why.
- Obamacare covers my every-3-months doctor visit and my meds. Without it, which Trump has sworn to end, I have no way to pay for my meds. I cannot live without my medications, period.
- Our electric bill is subsidised as we are low-income home owners. Without that subsidy, we can’t afford A/C in the summer. Without A/C, my headaches will be hugely worse, and it will be very difficult to heat this house.
- My wife’s income would have given us retirement money with a pay raise, even if not the full $15/hour that Hillary had talked about. With Trump, her raises will be next to nothing, far too little to cover our sharply increased costs due to cancelled assist programs. No retirement savings to fall back on, so basically, we’re flat-ass broke and will have to sell this house, for money just to live.
Not to mention the economic depression which will hit this area that is highly dependent on welfare, food stamps, and other state and federal aid. This area of Ohio will lose BIG amounts of money, yet these assholes voted for Trump. (No apologies for the language – I am sick to my stomach and headache-racked right now).
So if tomorrow ends up with the US under Trump, I will be signing off. We’re going to have to start cutting costs immediately. No Internet, no satellite TV for news or to keep me sane, we’ll even have to ration our power use. I won’t be able to talk to you again, to write my silly posts or make stupid comments on your blogs. I’ll miss you guys, all of you, even the silent readers who just dropped me likes.
I am so ashamed to call myself an American. The USA has committed a gross act of stupidity. And I’m gonna have to pay for it. I don’t know what else to say. See you all tomorrow, one way or the other.
