President-Elect Donald Trump FULL Speech at Thank You Tour, Cincinnati

I LOVE Trump. In my lifetime of voting, I liked Gary Hart a lot in 1984, and Bill Clinton a lot in 1992. But I've never LOVED a candidate. This guy, in a hilariously overt way, EXACTLY nailed the intellectual causes of the malaise I'd been feeling.

My favorite meme from "The Dinner":

If I were to die tonight...

...I would be sad. But not horribly so.

At 51, I think I've pretty much been through all of the shallow stuff there is to go through. The decades of upset over:

The shitty, hateful, immature parents; the first innocent love (Ginny) who left me when I went off to college; the first actual sex after I came out (the scumbag Mollie); the first workplace sex with a married boss (Bill); the first online obsession/being catfished by a tranny (Julie); the first online re-connection with a past college obsession (Sandra).

From childhood through age 51, I've pretty much run the gamut of shittiness when it comes to attempts at intimacy. I have felt momentary glimpses of closeness with each of the abovementioned, but... "moments" don't count. "Moments" are kid-stuff, like liking a band for a season.

This evening, I feel that the above are, rightfully, sloughed away. If I were to die tonight, I would die emotionally clean and clear.

Follow-up the next day: Upon waking this morning, I had a groggy but literal vision of pinching off the end of a balloon and then watching the balloon sail off into the sky. That's how I feel about the above people in my life. They lighten me with their absence.

I perhaps have been watching too many episodes of "The Dead Files" (which have actually spooked me, to the point of turning on lights). A main lesson that I've gleaned from the show and its accompanying lost souls: "Get yourself right with the world if you don't want to be trapped in some horrific limbo after you've left it." Got it.

Black Men Brutally Attack Old White Guy For Voting Trump

Who are the real racists?

Since Trump's election last week, I've received 4 global e-mails from leaders at my University workplace, all along the lines of: "...The Campus Climate Response team received multiple complaints about allegedly threatening signs and comments. We take these reports seriously and are responding to them. We are also watching the national events closely — including allegations of students at other universities being targeted. Such actions are intolerable, and we will do everything we can as a university to support any members of the UT community who feel they are being targeted. The university is already developing new policies to respond to bias incidents, and we will have a proposal to share with the campus for feedback soon. Already this year the university has taken several initial steps to facilitate a faster institutional response to bias incidents...."

What is most insane about the above is that the post-election (much as the pre-election) violence has come from ANTI-Trump people! Pre-election, Wikileaks posted proof that radicals were being PAID to intentionally infiltrate Trump rallies and pick fights! Post-election, it's the radicals marching and picking fights! Yet... I get a message at my university workplace stating that the same radicals are now feeling "threatened" and that we should "support" them....

It's insane. It's Trump people who are being "targeted." See the below post-election video shot in Chicago. I myself almost didn't put a Trump sticker on my car back in July because I was afraid of idiots damaging my car. (Nothing has happened to my car; but it's sad and telling that in America, I was actually afraid of something happening to it. Luckily, Austin is rather mellow. Imagine if I lived in Oakland or Chicago, though. THERE is where the real fascism resides.)
