Rant, Shmant, as long as I can vent…Week 3


Quiet! Third therapy session in progress

The amount of shpilkas I’m experiencing from just the news alone; I could plotz. It’s getting worse as Little and Big are growing and asking more and more sizable questions about the planet and the people who surround us. They are going to have to live in this world, clearly a work in progress (perhaps I use this term loosely), and I am fearful of so many things.

Oy vey, this week. Caucusing! What nudnik came up with this process? We schmooze, we kibbitz, we vote. And then, straight from the clown car, Cruz cruises into the main ring? The top three from that car, vey iz mir! These party leaders, who hold punishing values and regressive perspectives toward women, gays, sick, aged, underprivileged people. And science? They allow for religion to trump science (yes, I used that T-word on purpose). There is an age-old Yiddish curse that I offer to these GOP machers: May every tooth in your head fall out, except one, so you can get a toothache! Then I add to this Yiddisher-spell, deal with the fact you no longer have dental insurance!

Oh Bernie, how I feel you and the tie/loss. I do not believe this country, my country, can or will elect a lantzman. Hillary, you squeezed success by merely a bissel. Everyone please read her emails. The state department releases them in bunches (like your panties) each month because they are public record. See who she really is. Forget the blue pants suit already. A shonda.

While I’m on the government and this merry-go-round of Looney-tunes, I must say the water crisis in Flint, this disgusting, inhumane cover-up—how can we do this to our own people? How can we do this at all, and sit back and deny, deny, deny. How do these politicians and GM corporate gonifs sleep at night? What do you do when your tap water starts to look like coffee and the EPA says, “it’s all good; drink up!” If not Flint, where else? What don’t we know? What are we drinking? Pepsi, the behemoth of bottlers even revealed that their Dasani bottled water is simply tap water. Tap water from where? I’m in Pennsylvania, the fracking epicenter. You think I feel good about our water? A shonda.

Voter apathy. People, if you care at all, please register to vote now. Primaries are looming. They matter. Read about the people seeking the biggest, most undesirable and scrutinized job in our nation, because you have ‘say.’ Make your decision and please, no matter whom you choose, VOTE. I know, the roster has been meh at best…but your voice, it matters. On November 8th of this very year, your VOTE matters. Get yourself ready to vote because #humanitymatters.


If not for you, please, for my Little and Big and your kinder too.

  1. I can’t even watch the news. Partner has to record it and watch it when I am not around. I work in politics (for 5 local elected politicians) and my head spins daily with the unbelievable BS of local politics I just don’t have the emotional strength to sit through the national level of politics. Three of my current bosses are up for re-election this year and everything is amplified and since I work at the will of this board I could be out of a job depending on who gets elected so I am just exhausted with politicians, corruption, the whole process. But yes, I will vote and hopefully it will count but Florida isn’t known for that.


      1. Small world. I’m not too far from Hollywood. I lived in Bloomsburg Pa for a bit in my 20s.

        We are thinking about cutting the cord too. Less exposure has me sold on it. I would rather just read the bullet points after. 🙂


  2. Politics. My that’s a dirty word. The question I always walk away with during elections is, “why don’t we change this two party system? All it does is divide us.” I am sure it has it’s uses, and I remember being told why it was, “necessary” in university at some point, but one always feels they are left with a compromise. How often do you 100%, or even 80+% connect with a candidate? I am usually in the 80 range… which means that at least 20% of what the leader of the country is saying I am against.

    Politics is that special game where they pick a winner and we all lose in some way.


  3. Oh my, I feel for you. I simply am thankful we are done with all that nonsense up here (in Canada) for another few years. When I did vote (and I always do, its an obligation of any citizen in my opinion) it was for which party I thought could provide the best road to a decent future for my little tidbits. That being said I think we’re %*#@ed no matter what the with direction politics are continuing….


  4. Here Here! Well said! It is time someone say something about these rodent politicians. I am sure they started well and means well – but they can get sucked into such competition with each other that they forget to solve the world’s problem at hand. It is rear to see a true well meaningful politician. Thank you for linking up with us again. #FabFridayPost
