Well That Happened!  
Friends. Romans, Fl*sters, like many of you out there I'm still in shock as 2016 has struck again!  I'm still trying to come to terms with the news that America has elected Donald Trump President.....no matter how many times I beat my head against the desk the news is still the same.

I was hoping that my first foray into posting on LJ for a while would be a happy affair, but in light of today's events I feel like using the words of wisdom the late great Douglas Adams used in Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy....

DON'T PANIC!

Now I'm not going to pretend that the next four years will be all sunshine and rainbows (in fact I fully expect the rainbow flag to be banned in America very soon) but just remember that if the orange skinned twat doesn't get us all nuked first, he will only be in power for four years.  Look I'm trying to see the positives here, it will take some time but I'm bloody determined to.

I suggest we all huddle to together and send out hugs to all our friends, find the funniest pictures we can and post them. Read our fluffiest and funniest fics, and stand together in the face of hatred and intolerance.  Now is not the time to add to those flames, now more than ever we need to be compassionate and don't sink to the level of Trump and his kind.

And just to get the party started....

hug

And just remember when all else fails...

Anyone else feel like joining in?

That was seriously unbelievable. Hubby told me the results by SMS while I was at work and I laughed I couldn't believe it.

Now I'm just hoping the real politicians do their job and he stays a figurehead.

We all definitely need that hug.

I'm still in shock, but what is done is done and all we can do is stand together and show the world there are still tolerant people out there.

I am truly terrified. I know we don't live in the US but his hatred will trickle down. The world needs to watch it's back. If America can vote in Trump, Ferage isn't far away for us and if those two decide to team up then every decent human being on the planet needs to start watching where they step.

I have no idea what is happening this year, it's totally unbelievable and very frightening. The only thing I can think of is people are so fed up with the establishment they see these kind of things as a protest. They just don't realize the far reaching consequences of their actions, and now we've all got to hope that this will wake everyone up and we start to think before we give these morons more power over us.

AAh, a bit of minion fun, just what we need to lighten the mood.
Another positve, someone might assassinate him?

But then, hang on, then we'd end up with Mike 'I've got an unhealthy obsession with uteruses' Pence instead.

Bloody hell, two bullets maybe?

We really need the mood lightening right about now. And if there is an assassination plot we really do need two bullets, because I hear Pence is even worse than Trump!And boy doesn't that statement fill you full of joy.

We have to remember that its a 4 year term, maybe by then the ones who voted the orange buffoon in realise they made the biggest mistake of their lives.

My sister who recently emigrated to America since her husband is an American, she called us this evening and she told us that her hubby said its not Trump they have to worry about, it's his VP, he's worse.

We all definitely need that hug.

Like the picture posts, the minions made me smile which I needed.

*hugs*

It is only four years and hopefully America will wake up, and I hate to say this but considering what I've heard about Pence then Long Live Trump, he actually might be the lesser of two evils.
