Soy Elitista

If you’re like me, you’re beyond exhausted with all the Tr*mp news. I think I mentioned this already, but I had to break away from it because I had a serious stress headache for like 3 days straight! If you haven’t been as stressed, then you’re lucky. I’m the type that, if I see/hear of something that I want to fix, I stress about fixing it. I’m a solutions-oriented person. If I don’t like something enough, my goal is to solve the problem. You have NO idea how much I want to solve the problem that is Tr*mp. NO idea!!!!

Anyway, my headaches have subsided (thankfully), but I’m still upset about EVERYTHING this man is doing. Everything he thinks is good, I think is terrible. Never in a million years did I think he’d literally screw up every single good thing Obama set in place. But that’s exactly what he’s doing. From immigration to the environment, he’s taking the biggest sh*t on all the good that the Obama administration has done. Of course, there were things that Obama did that didn’t please people. I get it. But you’re a complete moron if you think Obama didn’t do great things for this country.

That’s harsh to call someone a moron, but I haven’t found ONE single Tr*mp supporter that has said anything smart. Not ONE. Everyone that defends him sounds like an idiot. And the biggest thing that gets me is, if Hillary or Obama had said/done ANY of the ridiculous things Tr*mp has said/done, every one of his supporters would’ve exploded! The hypocrisy amongst his supporters is unreal and infuriating.

So…do I sound elitist? Well…

if elitist means:

-wanting rights for all human beings
-allowing women the right to choose what they do with their own reproductive organs
-having stricter background checks for those that want to own guns
-fixing our immigration system so people can immigrate to our country
-allowing refugees/asylum seekers the chance to escape war and live at peace
-protecting our environment so it can be here for our future generations
-acknowledging climate change/global warming exists
not restricting people from certain countries from entering our country
-understanding that it is wrong to generalize an entire group of people
-wanting to maintain good relationships with our allies
-that the Press is NOT THE ENEMY, and finally

-that we should NOT trust anything that comes out of our so-called President’s mouth because our so-called President constantly lies and has been caught in a number of lies…

then, yes, I’m an elitist!! I’d rather be an elitist than a racist, xenophobe any day of the year!

I cannot for the life of me imagine living the life that Tr*mp’s supporters live. Hating people. Being fearful of everyone. Wanting to live only amongst people that look like them and think like them. That’s what they want. I don’t get that. That’s super weird. Can you imagine living only with people that look like you and agree with you on everything? It’s no wonder people like that are so fearful of change and of people that are different. I don’t want that life. I don’t want to live in a country where everyone is the same. Tr*mp’s America is one where they don’t think it’s worth it to know what we’re doing to the environment. They think the environment is fine. They agree that fetus lives matters, but yet, they all want to own guns because other lives don’t matter. (<–This blows my mind. That makes NO sense.) Many of them are Christian, but don’t act like it at all when they don’t want to accept people that are different from them. His supporters are so strange to me and now he is quickly changing our country to reflect this odd and hateful group of people.

[**Stop for a moment and think about what your life would be like if your parents taught you to hate an ENTIRE group of people. Stop and think what you would have to do in your life to hate an ENTIRE group of people. Just think about all of the places you’d have to avoid…all of the activities you wouldn’t be able to do…where you’d have to live…all because you were taught to hate an ENTIRE group of people. Just think about the energy it takes to hate an ENTIRE group of people ALL OF THE TIME. Many of Tr*mp’s supporters are these people. Marinate on that.**]

Seriously, what can be done about this man, I don’t know. But something needs to be done. I’m not even joking when I say I keep thinking about moving out of the country. No country is without its faults, but if Tr*mp is allowed to continue this madness, then I can say for sure that there will be many other countries that will be better and safer than ours.

Ok, I’m off my soapbox for the day. I didn’t want to write angrily today, but I’ve just been in this mood for so long. Every time I sit down to write, I just can’t seem to write about anything good. And I know that everyone is already bombarded with news of this guy as it is. So, I will end with something GOOD…

As you know, I’ve been designing some shirts and each week, I’m adding new products! So please check out my store, Unidos, at: www.zazzle.com/unidos*

Here are a just few things I’ve added (there are LOTS more on the site):

 

Unite For The Good Fight!

Friends,

I mentioned in the last blog that I had started making t-shirts. I hope you’ve had a chance to check those out (go here). They are specifically for those that want to represent tha D! Now, I know not all of you are from the D, so I’m going to start working on other cities in a little while. But first, I wanted to share some MORE shirts I’m making as I type!

Like many of you out there, I’ve been racking my brain on how I could do my part to help fight the Evil Empire that has taken over our country. So I started thinking of ideas and one of them was geared towards women’s empowerment. After seeing the Women’s March, I began making shirts and other items that instilled a sense of pride. I haven’t created that store yet, but I have created those items. They will be coming soon! But I wanted to share something else more…universal?

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not one to jump up and go protest/march. I’m not against anyone that does, that’s just not my thing. I’m surprised at the volume of people that have been doing it though lately and I think it’s awesome!! For me however, I’ve been wanting to chip in somehow, some way. I think a lot of us want to speak out but don’t know how. And some of us want to speak out, but still protect ourselves from the more aggressive opponents. So I racked my brain and came up with the shirts below (and a few more things here).

I kept thinking, we need to unite and fight for the good in this country. A lot of people think DJT is doing good. But I have to say, these people are highly misinformed. Doing good in the world should mean that others don’t get hurt or continue to suffer in the process. I understand wanting to protecting our country, but there’s GOT to be a better way than what he’s doing. I’ve been reading about all of the stories of people trying to immigrate here and it’s been beyond sad. There are people trying to get to our country for medical treatments…people trying to escape persecution. The stories are endless. All I can think about is the fact that we wouldn’t HAVE a country if people didn’t immigrate here! I don’t know why people don’t understand this fact. DJT and his people need to understand that not everyone coming here is out to harm our country. It’s insane to think this way. It’s negative thinking on the most extreme level. Frankly, it’s counterproductive to think this way and no good will ever come of it.

Long story short: I wanted to unite for the GOOD fight!

Below are a couple items I have posted. I have a few more if you go here. I may add a few other items, but I’m not sure. I want to keep the items low in cost and some items on Zazzle can get up there in price. So we’ll see. But for now, check it out and support the fight! Oh, and totally share it with your friends!!

Thanks everyone!!!

P.S. There are women’s shirts!! I just didn’t link them in this blog.

 

Fight for the Good Fight for the Good
by Unidos

 

Stay The Course

It’s hard to stay focused when it feels like our country is falling apart. *sigh* I keep asking myself is this real life? Seriously, did we really elect this guy??? I know a lot of you feel this way too. And if you don’t, then you’re one of the lucky ones, I guess. I know some folks out there reading this may have even voted for this orange-faced tyrant. I did not, so I can’t relate to you all. For real, I don’t get what you see in him AT ALL. So if you voted for him, I seriously hope he doesn’t screw you (and the rest of us) over. But if my Spidey-senses are correct, he will quickly lead us into trouble. Like that wall he was going to make Mexico pay for. Well, Mr. Ryan is already talking about they’re willing to front the $8-14B (it’ll be closer to 50B) it’ll take to construct the wall. Where in the world do they plan to get this money because ya know Mexico ain’t putting in s**t. Yes, that’s right. WE (the 99%) will pay for it. So watch our taxes go sky high should this wall idea actually come to fruition. Let’s pray it doesn’t because I don’t need a wall to be built. How about new pipes and clean water for Flint (and other cities)? How about better roads and bridges? You know, I could go on and on about what we need more than a wall. *smh*

I am actually trying NOT to pay attention to what’s going on with this new administration because it’s stressing me out. When I start to care about things, I CARE about them. I’ve had a stress headache for 3 days. And now my eye is starting to twitch. Ugh. It’s deeply troubling that our country is being led by someone that couldn’t give two craps about anything but himself. Say what you want about Obama. No person is perfect. Some of his decisions might be questionable. Many seem to always bring up the drone strikes as one of Obama’s biggest missteps. It wasn’t an easy decision to make, I’m sure. Was it better than putting troops on the ground? I don’t know. Fortunately, I don’t have to make that decision. But with Drumpf, I can guarantee he will send in our troops without hesitation for any matter. Hell, he wants the Feds to go into Chicago to crack down on the violence!!! If he’s willing to do that, he will definitely send in our military if an issue arise oversees. Give it time, it’s coming. And that’s scary! We will be in another 10 year war with this guy in no time.

Do you see why I’m stressed!?! This guy could do anything at any time and that should scare everyone, even those that voted for him.

But in an attempt to move on…. I have something to share with you that is fun and exciting!

I launched a Zazzle store! What’s Zazzle? Zazzle is an online site where you can create shirts, bags, hats, stationery, key chains, etc, etc. You name it, you can create it. So I’ve been wanting to do something really fun for a very long time. And this year, I said, screw it, I’m going to do fun things! So I decided to create a store that sells items that represent Detroit! And in the near future, I’m going to add items for other cities too! But for now, it’s all about Detroit! When you get a chance, check it out! And ya know, maybe buy something 🙂 I get a portion of the sales.

Also in the near future, I’ll be working on creating another store with items inspired by the Woman’s March. Items sold in this store will be centered on empowering women and girls. AND…I plan on donating a portion of the funds to Planned Parenthood and other organizations that help women. I have been thinking about ways to help these organizations since it was becoming clear Drumpf would take office. I want to help them because they will need it now more than ever with this new administration. I will post that store link here when I have it up and ready. Hopefully it’ll be up in another month or so…. I’m trying to come up with some cool designs. 🙂

Alrighty, see, this post wasn’t all doom and gloom! 🙂 #WeGonMakeIt #WeGonBeAlright
