I am sick with the news. I won't watch it until Hillary Clinton is president.
I believe the Republican National Committee won the mid-term elections with fake fear, including fear of Ebola (as if Obama were passing it to everyone, even though touching bodily fluids of a sick person is required to possibly catch it) and fear of ISIS coming to the U.S.
I have real fears. I fear tomorrow I won't have enough to eat or be able to pay my heating bill and will freeze. They already cut my food stamps from $80 to $40, and who knows what they'll do now.
I fear for people working for $7.50 an hour, unable to support their families because Republicans don't want to raise the minimum wage.
Never miss a local story.
It is a scary new world I woke up to on Nov. 5 and have to endure until 2016.
