Fuck them! I hate this shit so much. The planet is turning worse by the day.

I'm just glad my brother and his family are all ok, but I am so sorry to see their city hit by terrorism like that. Hate to see what it does to the political climate too.

[personal profile] beer_good_foamy , you are good, yes?

I'm fine, thanks. Sad, frustrated and pissed off, both at the assholes who did this and at the assholes on both sides who have been actively wishing for this to happen for years as an excuse to spread even more hate and who are now celebrating the death of four innocent people. (Thanks, Donald. We really appreciate that bull's eye you painted on us.)

But come Monday, I get to do something about it. Being a librarian has its upsides. Until then, well, see username. I don't think I'll be online much.

Oh good, you are okay, wasn't sure if that was where you were located.

And yes...right there with you on the rest of it. (UGh the Doofus...he appears to be intent on destroying the world to build up his ego.)

I'm glad your brother and family are okay.

There are some seriously terrible people in this world.

Glad your family is okay. Was just talking to a co-worker today about how much we'd both love to visit Europe, but not now.

Stay safe.

In a way, the politicians are right about the news media and how it exaggerates things and spreads fear. Ours likes to just report the negative news.

Right now, there's a ban on ipads and lap-top devices in carry-on bags for overseas travel to various locals. (Although as a general rule, I tend to leave such things at home when I'm not traveling to see relatives.) And I think it is just to certain regions and countries. The reason? About ISIS has figured out how to put bombs in computers now. (Sigh).

But, I do have Prague, Vienna, Austria, the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Italy, and Greece on my bucket list. Would also at some point like to see Israel. (Been to France and England a couple of times.)

And true, I do live in NYC, which a lot of people including people in the US consider unsafe. It's not from my perspective -- more chances of being killed by a wayward bus or taxi. But it also has had more terrorist incidents and far worse ones than most other countries.

I'd love to see NYC one day, my gut reaction is to add, "after Trump is gone" but of course that's silly. The orange moron doesn't change what a vibrant and cool place NYC is.

If you ever come, let me know, and I'll give you a tour or meet up for dinner or lunch. Can't put anyone up, small apt and all the way out in Brooklyn.

Eh, Trump isn't noticeable in NYC. For one thing 80% or maybe 90% of New Yorkers hate him. For another, we're a sancturary city and state, who is dedicated to fighting him. He really has less effect on the day to day than you might think. Heck I was working about 20 city blocks from him and didn't see or notice him at all for an entire year and a half. He spends most of his time in West Palm Beach, Florida. Apparently he doesn't like the White House all that much. I keep hoping a hurricane will heat when he's done there and wash him out to sea.

I'm hoping he's impeached or resigns by December. Right now I'm betting fall of 2018.

So much of what holds me back from traveling right now is money and time. Also I have to find the right group tour, since I don't like traveling solo -- too much work and stress. Did a lot of that when I was much younger.
