The Beginning of the End

It began when I woke up the morning after the recent presidential election, after watching the election returns late into the night with a sense of shock, disbelief, unreality, and increasing premonitions of impending doom, and said something like this to my husband, “This is when it begins, the end of the world.”

I have gradually calmed down and regained some equilibrium until I read about The Russians hacking into our election and watched the president-elect appoint a man for Secretary of State who was awarded a “Friend of Russia” trophy by Putin.

The saving grace for me has been reading satire and humor about the whole situation. At least we can have a good laugh while we march off to our destruction. So I want to include a few funny posts for your enjoyment, which would probably be anything by Andy Borowitz of the New Yorker Magazine, Dave Barry, and David Horsey.

Kremlin Names Trump Employee of the Month

Putin to Sing at Trump Inauguration

Putin Agrees to Recieve Intelligence Briefings in Trump’s Place

Dave Barry’s Year in Review: 2016–What the ? 

David Horsey Political Cartoons and Commentary in LA Times

A Fake News History of 2016

I consider myself a hopeful, optimistic person most times and I feel I must work hard to remain this way for the sake of my kids and new grandson. So I think it will all come out all right in the end.

This post is for Stream of Consciousness Saturday hosted by Linda G Hill who said, Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “first/last.” Use one or both words, or find words that mean the same. Bonus points if you start your post with “first/beginning/start” etc. and end with “last/end” etc. Enjoy!

Wishing you a Happy New Year! And hoping 2017 will be a better year for us all.

      Sometimes I get in the mood for dystopian too, like the movie “V for Vendetta” or disaster movies that involve forces of nature, like earthquakes and volcanoes and such. But some of my favorite old standbys are Sci Fi and mysteries. 🙂
