Post Election Stress Disorder

:icontheliarwolfram:
TheLiarWolfram Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2012  Student Filmographer
Where are the phone calls at all hours of the day? Where are the people knocking at the door handing out fliers? How come I can see a normal commercial on TV and Youtube? *dives behind couch* These are little thoughts in the back of my head still, because I live in Ohio, the state bombarded with more political ads than any other because it has so many electoral votes. Fuckity fuck.

Well, that's over, at least. I thought I wouldn't have to hear anything more about the election. I'm not even going to give it my time to talk about it in my complaint, because I voted for Gary Johnson, who I knew would lose. So I don't really give a fuck who's in the White House right now. Mittens and Bronco Bamma can sink to a nice little recess in my memory and the world will keep turning.

Except PEOPLE LITERALLY THINK THE WORLD IS ENDING.

Seriously! I know one girl who has literally given up on her life, on going to college, on ever leaving her parents' house, because of who won the presidential election. Oh, and then on Facebook a guy called the election "fraud," and you know what? If you don't want to think Bush's election was a fraud in 2000, and you won't allow anyone to give THAT opinion on it, don't complain about this election being rigged or whatever. And another one on Facebook said, "If you voted for that son of a bitch and you consider yourself my friend, don't." I... I just... *sigh*

Reason why this is in complaints, not politics? Because I don't want to see an argument down there in the comments about who won. I don't. Don't do it.

:icontealdeerplz: I guess the world's ending, guys. Better hope an alien pays for a round of drinks for everyone, and put a bag over your head if you think it will help. But it won't.

ANTI-COMPLAINT: I discovered Tegan and Sara last night after a friend cut my hair after their style. I love their jangly indie pop sound. It makes my ears happy.

I have a friend on facebook who thinks America is going to collapse and that Obama wasn't supposed to win with all the fraud. Yes the fraud that did happen should be dealt with, but geez, will you shut up? And everything she posts, she posts twice.

As for states seceding from the union, Texas is the only one that specifically reserves the ability to do so in the state constitution. I'm still trying to figure out if other states are somehow allowed to, or where it specifically says they can't.

I first heard Tegan and Sara live. They opened for a Death Cab concert I went to.

Try this: most of my family lives in the various states that are trying to secede, and I'm three months out of boot camp. Not that I actually think they'll succeed in secession but what the ACTUAL FUCK am I supposed to do if they do? Even if everyone stays all buddy-buddy and peaceful, it will mean an assload of paperwork for me :o

Apparently Indiana and several other states are petitioning to secede from the US. Not sure if it's "official" but the fact the petition even exists......................

They are!? Must see! I love them. I hadn't even heard their music when I had my hair cut like theirs. Well, it's like half Tegan and Sara, half David Bowie. Whatever. I figured, "well, if I've got the hair, might as well listen to their music." It was a good decision.

No, I think America has a lot of rights and opportunities other countries don't have. But quite frankly, I'm not a fan of what's going on in it, and I just don't like the culture--or lack thereof. I have friends who live in England, who I've actually met before, so I wouldn't be going knowing absolutely no one there.

That's why I'm not complaining about the election results. I think of China, who just changed presidents. No one got to choose who it was. The rift between the rich and poor is growing, and the government seems to only be interested in making the economy grow. I'm thankful to have the right to vote. Right now, Republicans wish half the country couldn't vote.

And these coming from the people that, two months ago, when asked about Obama, they say "Well, he isn't doing that much, so....meh to him"

While in Maryland, we were flooded with ads about question 7. It was annoying, scratch that, too obnoxious for it's own good.

By the way, "If you voted for that son of a bitch and you consider yourself my friend, don't." gave me an epic facepalm.

YEAH GAIS! IT TOTALLY MATTURS IF YOU DUN SHARE MY OPINION AND VOTE 4 ROMNEY! ITS TTLY LIKE OBAMA DIDN'T DO A GOOD JOWB LEDING DAH CUMTRY THESE PAST 4 YERS, EVEN IF HE DEDNT IMPAC US AS POSSETIVELY AS WE WANTED.

This complaint isn't even about me. I don't think I have a problem, ha ha. I have bigger things to complain about--a kidney infection, my apartment burnt down in September, my dad hates me--but you know what? I'm not going to blast all that. I figured I'd have a lighthearted complaint about how silly people are in regards to politics :)

Either you're lying or you have issues. If my house burned down and I had a kidney infection, I wouldn't be making complaints like this.

I actually made a post in "Help With Life" about my apartment called simply "My apartment burnt down." A scroll through my old journals would show you the same thing. The wonderful Internet will also tell you what happened: [link]

That's a link to the local news story posted about the fire.

I was on the news. The fire started in the apartment below mine because one of the little girls who lived there found her dad's lighter, lit a piece of paper on fire, and shoved it through a hole in the window instead of putting it in the sink like a normal person. It hit a bush, the bush caught fire, and the vinyl siding of the apartments lit up. With no renter's insurance, my roommate and I got nothing for a fire that wasn't our fault. We lost everything.

See, I could complain about this. I could complain A LOT about this. But you know what? I've moved on. It happened in September, people have been really helpful in getting our stuff replaced, and in the end, it IS all just stuff. Just material possessions. Do I miss having all my artwork? Of course. I miss it dearly. But I can create better artwork in the future.

As for the kidney infection, I have antibiotics for it. It's just really stubborn, and I don't have the best immune system. I'm getting better :)

And when some people have it a lot worse--say, the people displaced by Hurricane Sandy in NYC--I can't complain. So I'd rather complain about the election.
