NaBloPoMo Day 13: It was bound to happen.

It was bound to happen that the blogger block would hit one of these days right? I mean surely?

Well, here it is. Day 13. I have 10 minutes to write a post before I have to get ready for work.

Although I probably will schedule the post for later.

Is scheduling posts cheating?

Inspector Climate showed me an article today from Jezebel of all the people who once Obama got reelected started calling him a monkey and the n word that I can't even bring myself to type on twitter. They said they wanted to take back America and have civil war 2012.

It's all I can think about this morning.

When will the racism stop? 

I know progressive movements (any movement) is slow. But it doesn't give me much hope for making giant gains on climate change (that has a deadline) when after decades of fighting we haven't gotten past using the n word?

Wow. Sorry. For a post that started as drivel and blogger's block this has taken an turn for the sad.

Apologies.

  1. I've hit the blogging wall too. I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to write about today, let alone for the rest of the week or the rest of the month. ARGH.

    And seriously - those people are just ridiculous. As is the fact that apparently something like 20 states have created petitions to withdraw from the Union as a result of the election. WHAT THE HELL, PEOPLE?!?!?!?!

    The whole thing makes me sad, because you can't help but wonder if 20-odd states would file to withdraw from the Union if the re-elected President weren't a person of colour. One day, America will catch up with the rest of the world. One day. But not today. Sigh.

  2. Surely, schedule posts is fine! I know I did it when I was away for three days. There's no way I could have done all of those posts from my phone without going crazy.

    I think it's a little sad that all of America is tarnished by these people and their asinine attitudes. Just when you think America can't surprise you any more, people go and prove you wrong, alas.

  3. Don't even get me started on the some of the responses to Obama.

    The latest: Woman blames husband for Obama reelection; runs over him with card.

    There are no words.

    In other news, the occasional scheduled post is totally legal! :) Good luck to ya!

  5. After the election I read something like 40% of people deleted half of their FB friends after the election. I guess a lot of people were saying a lot of really awful things. But the funny thing is my newsfeed was just page after page of positive thoughts and celebrating. So I felt lucky.

  6. I think the thing to remember D is that it is usually the craziest voices that speak the loudest. As pervasive as such horrific crap might seem, I am hopeful that it is simply the loud voice of a small minority.

  7. That is depressing. Name calling is so childish. Some people just never grow up.

    Scheduling posts is def not a no-no! I do that all the time! Actually, I'd say 99% of my posts are scheduled. It just makes my life easier that way. :o)

  8. I'm really starting to feel like we're moving backward in our society here. It's scaring the crap out of me.

  9. I totally understand how frustrated you feel with that article. The fact that people even consider this and are using that word, makes me so sad. We have this amazing country with so much freedom, and yet people choose hate. If only people looked on the bright side of this amazing life we have by living in the US.
