Take Me Somewhere Else
Last night, exactly at midnight, I had to call the Bank of America customer service because I was trying to purchase the rights to a new website template (Do you like it? You’re looking at it!) because the company that processes the payments (Skrill) is having some safety issues. Sooo…Bank of America put a hold on our credit card because of Skrill’s recent drama. I called Bank of America, spoke directly and immediately to Anitra who was pleasantly upbeat and funny for it being midnight. But, in the background here at the studio, they were playing Trump over and over and over and over on the tv I had playing for “background noise”….it was nauseating. I thought Anitra had me on hold when I told Tim, “Good gawd! I have to shut that fucking tv off. I can’t stand to hear that man’s voice any more.”
Right as I finished that statement, Anitra came back on the line and said, “yeah, turn that stuff off!” I had found another person who dislikes Trump as much as I do. We did some talking about it while she lifted the hold on my card. She said she would probably get into trouble for voicing her opinion. I told her she was just making me happy…so she shouldn’t get into trouble.
The point of this story is that there are a lot of people who don’t like Trump. Thousands and thousands of people. So many people you don’t even know. And they don’t say anything. Until now.
I refuse to stay silent any longer. I forfeited my television to his idiocy and bigotry during the entire summer, and even the fall. I am not going to tolerate a winter full of Trump bullshit. He has stated he hates the media and even though he took back that he would like to kill journalists like Putin does, he took that statement as far as it could go before it became alarming. If he hates the media so much, then why does he do whatever he can to get on television? And WHY does the media regurgitate his antics over and over and over and over? Stop it!
Force Trump to spend his own money. Force his flock to throw donations at him to keep his campaign alive. Why am I paying my cable bill only to see the Trump Idiot Show twenty four hours a day every single day of the week? I’m signing the petition to cut off his ego’s umbilical chord. Enough is fucking enough. And I refuse to apologize for this action because I am seriously NOT sorry. If you’ve had enough, then consider signing the petition. I don’t sign many of these things because I think they mostly fall on deaf ears. But I figure if Santa reads my letters every year for the past how-ever-old-I-am years, then there’s hope the media will get this petition to shut Trump the hell up.
And thank you to Anitra for letting me spend money again. Especially when it’s the season TO spend money. =)
