Hello, my name is Shannon Dupret, and I would like your support in my run for President of The United States of America.  I have no qualifications to recommend me for the job, but that doesn’t seem to matter anymore.

A few years ago I would have to look up the word misogyny every time it crossed a page in front of me.  Mostly I thought the authors were being dramatic.  I did recognize that misogyny still existed in United States, I did not think it was rampant.  We still have a long way to go before women are not treated as slightly less than, but full-blown hatred, nah.  The campaign of 2016 solidified the definition in my mind.  I am horrified that the people of our country can overlook such blatant disrespect in a position we would wish our young people to emulate.  I will not be attending the Women’s March today, although I think my daughters will.  Solidarity is a worthy goal, but I want leadership, something, or someone to galvanize us towards positive change.  Maybe this march is the first step towards a leader or a message that unites us into forward movement.  A weapon against fear mongering, and stagnation.

Trump signed an executive order last night in the first steps toward repealing Obamacare.  Obamacare sucks. Insurance companies must love that law, everyone has to have insurance or they get penalized bwah-haha.  Everyone needs health CARE, not health insurance.  Children should be a no-brainer, no arguments, they are just taken care of.  Adults get sticky, so many of our illnesses are because of poor life choices.  Who is the person who judges what a poor life decision is.  The reality is that we end up paying anyway, our hospitals don’t turn people away from the emergency room.  If you cannot pay you sign up for a government program.  We need to make it easier for people to get preventive care, not emergency care.  Obama made a start, now we need to refine that beginning, move forward.

Twitter is comparing pieces of Trump’s inaugural speech to the villain Bane’s speech in the 2012 batman movie.  He says he would be taking back the city from “the corrupt! The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity, and we give it back to you… the people. Gotham is yours.”    ah you gotta love this country.
