Too Much Shit Going Down
There is just too much every fucking day with this fucking administration, and I don't want to simply rehash all the latest news here, I'd prefer to do some synthesis, even if it is minimal. Plus real life, etc.
Basically, the Trump administration is as much a massive dumpster fire as I expected, if not more. Way more of the idiocy and lies of the Bush administration, and just as much of the cruelty and treason, even if it's less of the outright death and destruction.
Anyway, the main thing that fascinates me is Trump being a Russian agent, and goddamn if all the evidence doesn't point to that. Here's a great synthesis of that fact, by Jonathan Chait.
It does amaze me how blatant Trump is about trying to break up NATO and the EU. It's fucking bonkers.
And of course, there's the upcoming Trump-Putin summit, or basically where the handler gets a report from his asset. YES, it's FUCKING NUTS that Trump will meet Putin without any other people present or any official record. I mean, WTF!!!! Again, how much more blatant can you get?
The retirement of Anthony Kennedy allows Trump to swing the SCOTUS to the far right, which of course he has done, with his pick Bret Kavanaugh as replacement justice. This means corporate rule to the max and further gutting of women's, minorities' and worker's rights. Plus more damage to the environment, because that's how Republican psychopaths roll.
If you care about the environment, it's great that Pruitt is gone, but someone worse is in his place, of course.
And so on... there's just so much fucking awful crap going on.
THE BOTTOM LINE IS THIS-- DEMOCRATS MUST TAKE BACK CONGRESS TO SAVE THE COUNTRY FROM DESCENDING INTO FAR RIGHT FASCISM.
DO WHAT YOU CAN TO HELP DEMOCRATS WIN THIS NOVEMBER.
Obviously Democrats aren't going to do everything we would like, in terms of fighting the evil PTB... but they are better than the current crop of GOP assholes and at least they will hold Trump accountable.
VOTE BLUE NO MATTER WHO.
If you're so inclined and in a position to do so, there's also civil disobedience.
