I find it a relief to wake up in the morning without the urge to check the news for any bad shit that went down since the last time I checked. We had a weather disaster in Texas, and I followed the news. I donated some money to relief efforts for suffering Texans. President Biden declared an emergency for Texas and other southern states which freed up federal funding. The affected states were all states that didn’t vote for him in the electoral college. But Biden just did his job as president. He didn’t trash the states, he didn’t blame their governors or politicians, he didn’t hold up funding until they made statements to praise or support him. He didn’t tell Texas to fix their energy grid or they wouldn’t receive funds. He didn’t second-guess their efforts or motives.
He just did what the job requires. He didn’t use it to attract attention to himself. He just went back to work on the next thing.
Politics is boring again, and I sleep better because of it.

This entry of yours brings me to tears. You are absolutely right. I am nowadays just looking at headlines and clicking on one or two. It’s all the same crap from the “right” wing and will not go away, but I can.
