Artist's Insight 

What Next? July 24, 2016

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are tied in most polls predicting who will win the November election to be President of the United States. How can this be true? Has the world gone mad? Oh my God! What if Donald Trump becomes President of the USA? How can this be? Having read how the economy has left behind a certain class of workers, I understand this poll intellectually, but emotionally, can these people not see that Trump is a narcissistic con man? And while I understand, albeit reluctantly, the allure of throwing up your hands and saying, “Anything is better than what we have now” I am simultaneously repulsed, not so much by Trump, but by the huge mass of people who can envision voting for him. Are they mostly comprised of so-called hillbillies or trailer park trash, as some have suggested? Is Trump “cultural heroin” — the newest opioid of the masses — an easy escape from problems that seem overwhelming and hopeless? An outlet for their rage. What next? What doom awaits us? What next for the USA, for the world, for civilization? 

What Next? 1930, Germany

Cabaret, a movie, set in Berlin in the 1930s shows the moral anarchy of this time, on the eve of the Nazi ascent to power: an unforgettable aura of despair. Is there a parallel there to 2016? What was next for Austria, for Czechoslovakia, for the rest of Europe, for those of the non Aryran race, indeed for the world?

An Awful Dream written July 29, 2016 at 2:49 pm

I am scared right now:

  • The possibility of Donald Trump becoming the U.S. President is horrifying. I have a visceral fear and even hatred of stupidity and ignorance and he is ridiculous. Maybe it’s also tied into the fact that his opponent, Hillary Clinton, so capable and deserving, is a woman, an older woman, and there seems to be a huge amount of misogyny in the U.S. She is so clearly superior in every way, it’s difficult to comprehend that anyone could be contemplating supporting and voting for him. I even had a nightmare last night about the two of them and a gun battle. But the disturbing part of the awful dream is that I don’t know who won.

November 6, 2016

I cannot listen to the news. Ever since Comey sent his letter to Congress last week about Hillary’s emails I cannot listen. It is awful. A horrible impression of Impending Doom.

And then on Tuesday, November 8th:

         O.M.G.                W.T.F.                To sleep at 4 am.

I am feeling crummy. The Trump Shit is Overwhelming!

Tuesday, December 13th

I am going to turn my ANGER into artwork!

(God damn Fucking Right!)

I feel better!

The DSA and the DTs January 3, 2017

The DSA - Divided States of America - one of the results of “easy, reckless wedge politics”. 

The DTs are delirium tremens occurring in persons who have developed physiological dependence on alcohol, characterized by tremor, visual hallucinations, and autonomic instability.

We are now entering the Period of the DTs under the Gaslighter-in-Chief of the DSA.

“Take your broken heart and Make Art” Meryl Streep quoting Carrie Fisher at the Hollywood Foreign Press Golden Globe Award last night.

She said that the performance last year of DT mocking a disabled reporter broke her heart.

And then he demonstrated in 3 tweets everything I absolutely abhor about him.

  1. one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood

                  OH REALLY!

  1. doesn’t know me but attacked last night

            DOES SHE NEED TO KNOW YOU TO HAVE AN OPINION about something we all saw you do?

  1. She is a …. Hillary flunky 

                  Are your supporters FLUNKIES?

  1. For the 100th time, I never “mocked” a disabled reporter (would never do    that

                  DESPITE the fact we all saw you do it

                  Classic Gaslighting behaviour

                  Just textbook

  1. but simply showed him … “groveling” when he totally changed a 16 year    old story that he had written in order to make me look bad.

            WHAT THE FUCK!

  1. Just more very dishonest media!
