Hillary Makes Herstory

Hillary Clinton is splashed across every wire service, claiming her place in history as America's first female presumptive presidential nominee while rival Bernie Sanders refuses to drop his bid, despite overwhelming odds. History will remember his valiant effort to become president, as we see where his supporters turn. Interviewed on the news yesterday, many said they do not plan to vote. I feel the same.

Last night in Brooklyn, at the refurbished Brooklyn Navy Yard with a ceiling literally made of glass, Hillary said, "It may be hard to see tonight, but we are all standing under a glass ceiling right now. But don't worry, we're not smashing this one." That metaphor can be taken many ways depending on how you are programmed. In my understanding of reality - my brain showed me the image of the glass ceiling representing the view from outside, this reality as the "Watchers" monitor things based on the algorithm of this timeline.

I can't get passionate about either New York candidate - you probably feel the same. Onward we go with two of the most hated candidates in history continuing their endless rhetoric over the next four months during which Hillary will show us all things wrong with Trump and he in turn will show us why Hillary shouldn't be president.

As they destroy each other, they take away the little hope many have at fixing things. (The hologram can't be fixed. It needs to complete its agenda and end.) There should be a rule as to how many times candidates can repeat their attack on each other using the same themes. Trump behaves like a young child who does not know how to filter their comments and behavior. They act impulsively in the moment without regret. Do we really want the country run by someone with a childish emotional base? Do we have other options? We're screwed ... or is that the point in the spirals of consciousness?

Issues of gender will dominate the general election for at least two reasons. It will be the first time a woman has led a ticket in a presidential general election, and the two candidates already have been jousting over women and their roles. But there's so much more ...
