Bad mood, bad news

Perhaps it’s because I’ve felt so bad the last couple of days (still deeply in the grips of a malicious rhinovirus or coronavirus), but the news today aggrieves me. Offends me, repulses me. Take a look at this list and see if you have the same reaction.

I’m pretty sure I could go on finding news that sets me off, ad infinitum. It’s all Republicans, all the time, fighting culture wars aimed at creating a Christian Nationalist authoritarian state. Guns, gays, books, and women’s rights. These are the things they care about. It’s as if they all read Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale and used it as a model for their views on society. (I know, they don’t read, but if the shoe fits…).

I suppose this is my version of the old guy yelling at the television at some show or news he doesn’t like. If the shoe fits…
