Apparently, there's a name for this. It's called PEWS, short for Post-Election-Withdrawl-Syndrome.

According to Urban Dictionary:

Quote:
The feeling of general depletion and emptiness in the few days after a presidential election. Caused by the sudden withdrawal of any campaign coverage, sound bites, or pictures of babies being kissed. May be accompanied by aimless clicking on news websites looking for something to read.

*NOTE: This condition has been observed in people whether their chosen candidate won or not.

Wife, to her Doctor: "I'm worried about my husband. Ever since the 4th, he's just been sitting at home wandering the New York Times and CNN for hours on end."

Doctor: "I wouldn't worry about it. He probably just has an acute case of PEWS. He should be back on his feet by the end of the week."

This is so close to home. I was so exhausted and drained after the election I could not talk about it. There is so much I want to convey and rant about but am still too wiped . I can say one thing this is only the beginning.

I had to come back. I had an unnerving experience with an Obama supporter. I was in a store called Target, and ran into a friend and we started talking about the election. I voted third party and my friend voted third party and a woman over heard us and turned on me. She told me I was racist because I did not vote for Obama. I tried to explain I did not vote for McCain either but she told me I should be hung and she would like to be the one to put the noose on my neck. I was stunned, we reported it but she left before they could find her. I was also attacked at a political forum also. At one of the polling places there were Black Panthers with baseball bats keeping whites from going in and voting. What is happening here, and how much worse will it get. I have never in my life seen such craziness. There is talk he wants to ban talk radio because he does not want to be criticize. Gun sales are up and the gun dealers can not supply orders for six months because everyone is stocking up. These are terrible times and I am afraid it will get worse. I just wanted to rant and get this out of my system.

What you just described is indeed frightening, Lady Dunsany. And that's with Obama not even officially seated yet! We can only imagine what it's gonna be like once the inauguration is over and done with. :evil:

There's talk on the conspiracy circuit of Obama forming a civilian militia to promote/implement/enforce his ideology of change. What was it that George Santayana wrote in The Life of Reason:

Quote:
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

He has started already with making us more vulnerable to terrorists. He is undoing a lot of the programs that keep us safe. I fear what sort of civilian militia he will put into place. i never in my wildest dreams ever thought this would happen. I am afraid not for myself but for my family and the one's who have opposed him. I am not looking at a bright future anymore just dark. I hope you and your family that are over here stay safe. I have to go gotta bring four animals to the vet. I have six. I will be pulling my hair out before the day is over.

You and yours will be in my prayers during these uncertain times. Be well, Lady Dunsany, you, your family and your furry friends. :)

Kinda makes me wonder whether the change he has his mind is to wipe all of us off the face of the planet and start afresh.

Thank you Sirius Lee for your kind words. It is getting nastier than ever. I am now being attacked at my email as some insane person saw me on a political forum.. I see us being rounded up like cattle and no more talk radio, no rights, and serious consequences for the ones who are vocal. This is not socialism, this is fascism. I thought of the same thing wanting to wipe us out. They also want a bill to pass that will give the UN our extra money, mandate how children should be raised and put our military under UN rule, so they can prosecute our soldiers. I see red and black and darkness. I see a man who is not Obama come in and save us but not without horrors to the innocent. I hope but it could come down to a civil war. I am getting tired and must go rest. May the Universe protect us all.
