— but that my reaction to it is more usefully in line. Over in the congress, Paul Ryan and his party pals are salivating at the idea of breaking Medicare and the ACA. But I don’t think that it’s useful or effective for me to be pissed every single moment of my waking life. I’m going to be other things, too, in their moment.
I mean, there’s Pence and Gingrich (shudder) and then…?
They don’t even have Christie anymore, now that Jared Kushner has chucked him and all his pals out of the boat.
I’ll do this one in Q & A format, in no small part because it will include questions that people have actually asked me, and that I want to address: So, Scalzi, how are you doing? I’m eating and sleeping normally again, and I can go for hours at a time without thinking about the fact that a racist buffoon will soon be President of the United States, and when I do think of it, the emotion I feel is closer to exasperation than outright despair. I don’t think any of us can or should ignore the mess that’s happening or the mess we’re going into. I don’t think you can effectively deal with the former without keeping up with the latter.
This doesn’t mean it’s not still a problem — hey, look at the mess he’s making of the transition! President Obama (enjoy that while it lasts) had a conference call to Democrats in which he said he’d give people until Thanksgiving to grieve and then it would be time for them to get their shit together (I’m paraphrasing). But you’re still , in either case, and who is bringing along anti-semites and grifters and putting them at the levers of this country. I’m going to be pissed, and I suspect I’ll continue to be.
(And do that for the policies that will affect women, too.) (And the ones that will affect LGBTQ folks, too.) (And so on.) And that’s where I am, eight days on.
Complexity describes the behaviour of a system or model whose components interact in multiple ways and follow local rules, meaning there is no reasonable higher instruction to define the various possible interactions. Complex is composed of the Latin words com (meaning: "together") and plex (meaning: woven).Around the country, bigots are celebrating Trump’s win by yelling at minorities, women and LGTBQ folks and leaving racist, threatening messages for them. So be honest with us: How bad do you think it’s going to get?Well, as I said on Twitter yesterday, it’s sad when “too incompetent to function” is the best-case scenario with an incoming presidential administration.However, a characterization of what is complex is possible.a number of approaches to characterizing complexity; this article reflects many of these.But you wrote that piece where you called people racists! To be clear, again, I don’t think most people who voted for Trump would be actively racist or bigoted to another person in their day-to-day lives; most of the people I know who voted for Trump — and I know ), and they weren’t hidden.
