I need a vacation from Republicans in America.

Like most West Virginians I come from a long line of hardworking, make do with what you have spendthrifts who grew and canned what they couldn't afford with change.

Trump and his party members taught me a lesson I never want repeated. I am not now nor do I ever hope to have the benefits and mentality of the privileged.

The remnant's fostered upon me during his administration was exhausting and filmy.

Liars have existed since the beginning of time but I seriously doubt there has been a period in this country's past when millions upon millions lied as one.

"Weeping is said to endure through the night," it wasn't supposed to last four years, twenty-four hours a day for seven days a week!!

I pray for the incarcerated because I know that man's laws are unjust and sentences are passed down according to skin color.

I've seen the shadier side of policing and yet I still pray for the perpetrators. Judges, magistrates and municipal court hypocrites not so much. They know better.

Unfortunately some people can't be saved so I just toss them at the foot of the altar and walk away.

It's the best I can do and until Trump, his lumps in Congress and across America finally get that, I want nothing their hands have touched, "it is what it is."

So what if less than can't dress to impress, I and my ilk are happy.

As a non-professional actress I have no reason to play a part to gain a following.

When I leave my happy place to deal with that which brings out my rude and crude I speak my peace then go back to being happy and gay.

I need a vacation from Republicans in America. I feel dirty, soiled and a taint bit common from all the privileged particles floating in the air.

Now they want to save an America they claim is stripping them of their freedom.

Hogwash! Slavery in America was abolished by the Thirteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Roe v. Wade was overturned by their weaklings on the U.S. Supreme Court, and I wouldn't be surprised if one of them is elected again as President.

That being said, privileged people are advised not to raise fools.

America doesn't need to be SAVED.
