Chillin’ at 1:40 AM , March 31, 2019 .

 

Yesterday, March 30, was my Dad’s  birthday.

 

I haven’t “watched ” the news  for about 3 months now.. I am tired of all the political burlesque   that’s going on here in the US and around the world. Like,  what the heck  happened to Venezuela? It’s like an  apocalypse over  there … empty shelves at grocery stores,  Mickey Mouse money… almost a million Venezuela Bolivars for one cup of coffee ! ….  and a  million per cent  inflation rate. ( I watched it YouTube, BBC Channel )

 

On the homefront,  I’ve turned into a political zombie. …. I’m  more like a  ” deadma “ , I think.  What’s a ” deadma ” ?  It’s a common Filipino slang word coined from 2 English words  ” dead malice ” . A person is  deadma  when he/she  feels, looks, and acts unconcerned about what’s going on around him/her,. ( or fiddles while Rome burns, as the saying goes. ) . However, I’m only deadma  on the outside.  Inwardly, I’m judging….. Yes , judging ,  but  in the most sensible, reasonable ,  logical  and most fair manner  as possible.

That’s the  reason why my politics has   slid from far left  to just a bit left of center.  Extremism is toxic. Anything  taken  in excess is poison.  The only thing  that has not budged  is my position on environment and guns, and my  unwavering disgust with  you – know -who…

 

I know exactly when the slide towards the center started. It started right after the 2016 US presidential elections.

 

That’s all. Don’t hate me.  Bye , and peace.
