Posted on 11/05/2008 2:54:40 AM PST by SoftwareEngineer
What an awful way to wake up this morning. I have a sense of disbelief about what has happened. I am trying to do my morning chores but I can physically feel my heart hurting and my head pounding. It is unreal. I feel I am not really living this and instead this is some hallucination.
And yet, the day must go on. I have to get ready, go to work and meet clients. So to get over this election hangover (and a fair bit of Glenlivet last night) I am going to do the following:
1. Pray 2. Go for a run 3. Not watch any TV or listen to any Radio 4. Take a giant Excederin for my headache
How is everyone else handling this? Please post what you are all doing to keep functioning
you actually went to sleep :)
I’m fortunate in that I only do my drinking on weekends. That means I’ll be over the shock by Friday night and probably won’t be tempted to crawl into a bottle to recover.
What scares me most is that more than 1 in 2 Americans wanted this to happen.
Utter disbelief is an understatement. Disgust is a better word
One thing is for sure...we need Laura, Rush, Glenn, Sean, Mark, and even some Savage now more than ever. I listen to about 4 talk radio shows a day and may listen to more to make it through the next 4 years.
And mark my words, they try silencing them, and I will take to the streets. There will be another Civil War in this country if they try to take away talk radio. Talk radio is ALL we have left to keep us somewhat sane as the country turns to Socialism.
Good morning, SoftwareEngineer. I hope you feel better after your run. Have an egg for breakfast! I am feeling just fine this morning, having not imbibed any (ahem) restoratives due to a lingering sinus crud.
I’m about to haul my children (eight of them) out of bed. We’ll pray, read the Bible, and then get started on homeschooling, even though they think they deserve a day off because I was working the polls yesterday. (My state rep was reelected handily, bless his heart.) I need to draw a map of The Bahamas for my Girl Scouts to paint tomorrow. Tonight I’ll have choir practice.
God was King yesterday, and God is King today. What can men do to me?
Jesus Christ is King of Kings and Lord of Lords!!
Mac didn’t run the right campaign. And too many missteps.
For this weekend, beer, scotch, and maybe a few painkillers. I cannot believe that people are that stupid to vote for this socialist piece of crap.
Maybe it is time America went down in flames due to ignorance, greed, laziness, sloth and utter stupidity.
went to sleep at 10:00 PM EST, it was obvious.
What is next? Isreal is already being attacked! Will they bomb Iran? Is there going to be a mass exodus of industry to pre-empt punishing new taxes on earnings? Does Rush have to move to XM? Do I have to bury my guns in the woods?
To steal a quote from a great American For the first time in my adult life, I am ashamed of and afraid for my country.
And you to whom adversity has dealt a final blow
With smilin' bastards lying to you everywhere you go.
Turn to and put out all you have of heart and hand and brain
And like the Mary Ellen Carter rise again.
Rise again, RISE AGAIN.
Though your heart it be broken
Or life about to end.
No matter what you've lost be it a home, a love, a friend.
Like the Mary Ellen Carter rise again!
Part of it was just the fact that my brain could not process anything anymore.
This whole thing has been made worse by the freaking margins Obama won in some states.
A lot of DU members here on FR are going to mock me for being a sore loser. But I am NOT a sore loser. I am genuinely sad about a Socialist being elected.
I still remember the day when Clinton was elected first in 1992. I was sad because a lousy draft dodging pot smoking ex hippie was elected but I did not fear for myself or my safety.
That is the BIG difference in this election. I somehow feel that my family is “less safe” this AM. I don't know if I am the only Freeper that thinks like that or there are others but as of today I will be very cautious.
Utter disbelief. I haven’t been to bed, yet. I am so afraid for my kids and grandkids and yet unborn greatgrandchild. I am going to find a good church and start some counceling for me and my husband. Right now I am still numb.
my advice is to back off the tv and radio for several days.....if people are like me, we’ve had it....can’t take anymore of this disgusting turn of events.
America has been raped, thanks to a practically illiterate electorate.
We have a lot to thank GWB for.
He needs to abdicate early, take the RINOs with him and let our newly-elected master take the over the reins of a nation that once experimented with democracy.
With Obama in there will be no drilling for new oil, no missile defense system, abortion mills popping up like porno shops in our once polite cities and every day of his rule will seem like a drab, black and white day. The immigration from Somalia, Nigeria, Haiti, etc. will crowd our muslim cities and there will be no safe street to stroll.
We have been sold out.
Call the NYT. Ask for the sales department and ask for a 1/2 page ad to be run each Friday, Saturday and Sunday papers.
After you get pricing details, apologize profusely. Tell them Obama seems to have already spent your advertising budget and has given it to those more needy than the NYT.
You are not alone! The only consolation I can find is my knowledge that YHVH is in control and he works in strange ways at times.
Perhaps in time we'll become like Obomba voters: mind-numbed robots.
500 yrs from now this will be seen as the revival of the dark ages
Absolutely. Even with all that went on in the Clintoon admin I never felt for the safety of myself and my family like I do now.
But of course, all we’ll do is talk it to death. After all, with election fraud, lies, liberal-controlled media, etc what can we do?
Is there anyone with the stones to stand on a tavern chair and call for revolution circa 1775?
