Thank you! I really can't complain. I mean, I can, but that's what I have been doing since the election and you don't need to hear the horrible day-to-day gruel of fighting against the President-Elect and his Administration.

I haven't forgotten the story(ies) I have been working on "Before Me" on and off. I hope to post something soon.

It really is terrible. Every day we learn more about the people he is appointing. Basically, he wants people in charge of departments who don't think those departments are important. And it all seems illegal and unconstitutional as hell, and yet he is currently getting away with it. Despite the fact that most of his own party aren't fans of him, but since he has been able to give them both houses of congress, empowering their agendas, so they are willing to work with him. Instead of working for the good of the American people, they would rather secure their hold. It's disgusting. It's upsetting.

He hasn't taken office yet (that happens tomorrow, ugh) so none of his policies have passed. I doubt that anything will happen until the middle of the year. But I am far from being a political scholar, so these are all based on my observations and the information gathered over the news. The health care is okay for the moment. Luckily, I am healthy (except for being overweight) so though I may lose my health insurance, my life isn't in danger. That isn't true for a lot of people I know and care about, and that is who I am really worried (and fighting) for.

-Deep sigh-

As for the story, I will work on the chapter now. Even if I only get 100 words done that's 100 more than there were before now. XD

Yeah, I remember hearing about that. Sneaking in that vote (seemingly out of nowhere.) There is so much to keep an eye on that the newest fuck up constantly compete to be the most urgent issue to talk about. I was so irate when I read about the vote and then the next day a new appointment was made and I became irate about THAT!

The extremely sad thing are the people who voted for him are realizing that they have voted against their own interests. People didn't realize that the thing they were sp happy to get rid of, Obamacare, is the same thing they currently use ACA. The branding of it being a failed program and the overuse of buzz words is one of the many many ways this happened.

The new 100 words:

“What do you want, brother?” I had expected to hear the venom in my sister’s voice, but she instead sounded tired and expectant, like she knew this was coming, but really hoped it wouldn’t.

“I want to know why you are doing this,” I said, caught off guard by the lack of fight in her to explain myself any better. She waited for me to cleared my throat and try again. “I want to know why you’re here with him.” And not with Harry, the words were unsaid but she squirmed in her chair and I knew she had heard them anyway.

Yeah, the problem is telling those people now would only backfire. They would take any facts given them as fake and that the people providing the facts are just trying to call them stupid. And no one likes to be called stupid. It just makes you defensive.

Thank you. I have missed writing it. I have a notebook where I place little lines or images for a scene, but I haven't actually sat down and typed in the official document for the chapter (brilliantly titled Before Me 7 LOL)

Rejoice! There are 500 new words added to BM7 (calling it that because I'm lazy when using my phone. Lol)
