Day 333 - The Darkside of Cockwombles.
Definition of Cockwomble: Thank you Scotland/England for the amazing word!
A completely useless person that spouts constant bullshit.
A foolish or obnoxious person.
A person, usually male, prone to making outrageously stupid statements and/or inappropriate behavior while generally having a very high opinion of their own wisdom and importance.
Ok, I LOVE this word! On a variety of levels...
I love words anyway but this one ranks at the very tippy top of my list (get it? HAHA)
Anyway, I woke up this morning and didn’t have a subject matter in mind. Which is rare...I usually just wake up and know exactly what I am going to write about. Today, I felt kind of blank. Then I remembered this amazing word and knew exactly what I wanted to say.
While I am all in favor of words being great descriptors, in this case, I believe we could just have a photo next to it and that would perfectly explain to everyone what it means...
How did we get here?
How do we have a cockwomble as our leader?
How did this happen?
How can 50% of the country think he is representative of them?
I am baffled, saddened and really thinking about moving to Spain or the Canary Islands come 2021. I know I say that all the time but this time I might actually mean it. I really don’t want to live here for another four years as he dismantles humanity and all that is good and holy in the worst example capitalism can provide. I don’t.
For me, this isn’t that he is Republican. There are many Republicans that I have respect for. There are people that I know that have completely different points of view than me but I still think they are good people. I find nothing redeeming about the cockwomble. He is sick. I mean it, mentally ill. If we gave a description of his behavior to a group of psychologists, I can’t even fathom what diagnoses they would come up with...
He epitomizes hate, prejudice, stupidity, racism, sexism and every other ism I can think of...I know that I am now resorting to name calling, but shit, if the name fits...
I actually pray for him. I really do believe he is seriously, grievously mentally unstable and pathologically ill. I am afraid for us all if he gets elected again. Please, please, please don’t let that happen. This, to me, isn’t a right vs. left issue. This is a human issue. To me politics do not matter in this election. Platforms, causes, ideals and the like are rhetoric. This is a simple and fundamental question...do you want to elect someone to office who lies, who hate mongers, who refuses to provide his tax returns, who treats women like they are sexual objects, who has made his gazillions by being shrewd and cutthroat? And if you believe this is the way to the top, why? What happens when you get there? When you have treated every other soul on the way as expendable and meaningless. When you arrive at the top, who loves you? Really. Who loves you? Who has your back? And how could you think that treating others as less than human is ever going to place anyone in your circle that truly cares about you? No, they fear you that is all. And fear is a fickle bitch in my opinion. Because one day fear gives way to something else and there is where it all unravels.
I feel sorry for him. He is his own worst enemy. He is alone in a world he created that is based on a hunger for power and the need to abuse that power in order to cover up how he got the power to begin with...
I am ashamed that we have a cockwomble in our highest elected office. I am ashamed that anyone thinks that he is worthy of spending one day in that office, let alone four more years. I am afraid for the safety of us all. I am terrified by the divide between reality and fiction and our ever diminishing ability to decipher what is really going on. I feel lied to and cheated and absolutely despondent about the fact that we are here.
I used to believe that this country was the greatest in all the land. But now I walk around feeling like I live in a world under siege where I am not sure why so many people believe that his rise to power was a good thing for this country. How you can look at who he keeps showing us he is, and still think he is the better choice.
No one is perfect. We all make mistakes. And I do not hate him. I am praying for him. I am digging up compassion and empathy for him. I believe that he is sick. Seriously and gravely ill. And I am very concerned about how this mental instability is going to rain down horribleness over all of us. Vote your conscious. That is what we all have the right to do. But do not say that I didn’t call this later. This election embodies the classic but very real peril of good versus evil. Are you going to use the force for good or are you really going to the dark side? Remember what Vadar did to those that pledged him loyalty but then tried to brig reason to the table...he used the force to shut them up and quietly kill them. We are there people, we are there.
Please, for the love of all that is good in this world, please, do not re-elect a cockwomble. Funny word for a tragic situation. Elect a Republican in four years if you must, but just not this one. If you do, please do not get angry at me when he totally fucks us all over. If you vote for him, you lose all rights to claim victim in whatever injurious plot comes next. You pledged allegiance to the dark side and now you must feel the wrath. I am so grateful I won’t be with you on the Death Star that used to be our country when the rebel alliance blows it to smithereens. I will be in sunny Spain quietly living a life hiding out from cockwombles on power trips. Doing whatever I can to support the rebel alliance from my outpost on Tatooine (aka Spain).
