This has been a long year. I haven't felt like I've made much headway this year. Nothing is like I imagined it would be and I am disappointed and disheartened.

The 2016 Presidential election was a big dud and my favorite candidate didn't stand a chance. We are now doomed as democracy is sidelined and the mega-wealthy take control of the government. 

I'm old. A lot of people are older than me and we will all face the suppression of government assistance and protection we have known for so long. Our old people will be destitute. I'm close to it already.

Once corporations take over and destroy every branch of government that used to work for the people, not big business, we will all be fearful of death panels. Actually, all they have to do is cut social security and medicare and raise insurance rates or deny coverage and we won't even need any death panels. Old age, heart attacks, and strokes will take us out pretty fast. 

I don't mind it for myself but I do hate it for the people that have worked all their lives and paid into the system who won't be able to pay their bills. I hate it for the young people who are working on barely minimum wage who won't ever be able to afford a home or an education. I hate it for all the peons who shuffle to work every day just to put food on their table and a roof over their heads for themselves and their families. I hate it because it is the death of the American dream.

We used to say "anyone could grow up to be president someday." How prescient! We should modify that saying to include . . . "but that doesn't make it right."

I am deeply sad.

I don't know where we will go from here but since time only travels in one direction, we will see.
