How is It?
No, seriously, I mean, is this really where we're at? I read and watch the news most days, and I can be naive and simple, but what the fuck?
A friend and I were catching up the other day, and she was telling me about a vacant commercial property she shared ownership of that'd been sitting on the market pretty much since the first days of the pandemic. She mentioned that they finally leased it with the option to buy, and the one clause the lessee wanted added was that, in the event of war they could be released from the contract. Just words, sure, meant to cover their asses, but frightening nonetheless.
No doubt, we're all aware of the headlines from half a world away, and given the past behavior of those responsible for said headlines, times most certainly are causing stress and feelings of dis-ease, but really? I know I don't have that mature content warning on this blog, but what the fuck?! How is it that we've come to this?
For that matter, how is it that this country even allowed and approved of the previous administration? How is it that so many are being gaslighted still? And the bold, blatant lies- don't even get me started. How is it that so many in high positions think what's been happening is okay?
I'm leaning a little more political than I intended, so I'll lay off. Are we all just becoming so numb to the daily horseshit circus?
