wapo.stOpinion | The GOP is sick. It didn’t start with Trump — and won’t end with him.Trump is just a symptom of the sickness in the GOP.
I've off and on been watching Congress's action today. Yertle McConnell is badmouthing the big bill, but it doesn't look like his heart is in it. Not that he has a heart, but he looks real defeated. Meanwhile, the Dems are saying out loud that they plan to vote down all GOP amendments. It's about time they played hardball. It's killing Yertle that the Dems have the power to play his game.
If we could leave the US AND get rid of the US's super power status and if the rest of world were to isolate the remaining US, I would gladly put my feet up and eat popcorn to watch as the US kills itself.
I am very legitimately concerned about the future of the country.
My wife is a Mexican citizen, US LPR (greencard holder). I'm sort of ashamed to say, we have actually researched how easy it would be for me to get the Mexican equivalent of a green card (thankfully, answer is very easy due to my marriage to her), and we are actually going to do the paperwork for the kids to claim Mexican citizenship. If Trump is somehow still free, runs, and wins, we may move there.
I'm Jewish. I'm not going to be the person who says "how bad can it be?" when Hitler is elected. My wife has a lot of family there, and we have decent savings that would go a fairly long way there. My wife also owns a bunch of land there.
Ugh. Come on, Merrick Garland. If you don't lock this fucker up, you're as much of a fucking traitor as he is.
Hiya Jedi! Ltns, I hope you and yours are well and I hope you are enjoying the summer!
Ta for this post, and ugh holy shit I'm truly scared. This makes me want to start "prepping" for what I know will take place, hell it's already taking place.
I’m getting really sick and tired of everything GOP. I’m in a state with a big rural population that is trump drunk. They love him. And they are absolutely not above killing kids in schools with their goddamn gun laws, undermining the elections (we have idiots busted for January 6th offenses), and pushing as hard as they possibly can for more drilling while the planet burns.
I hate them. With every fiber of my being.
I’m an old white guy. I also chose to never have kids because I saw the climate crisis coming. They won’t hurt me. The only payback satisfaction is knowing they absolutely one day will suffer for this shit. So will their children. So will their families.
They have outright accepted and cheered fucking with the elections, supreme court, and elected officials all the way to school boards. They are gutting the public education system to raise up children who won’t even have the mental skills to choose poorly. They have trashed this country and democracy. Fuck every last one of them.
I hope they suffer.
That was well written, but it also showed me that I can no longer comment without subscribing so I am pissed off.
EDIT: I climbed a 12 foot ladder and made it in... thank you for the article heads up. Although it is more a push for his book than anything, it is a "blast from the past" reminder that you are facing more of the same or worse, when the RW political agenda is to: Undermine American intelligence, resources, growth and modernization, people of colour and the poor and so on and ad nauseam as they get richer with their kickbacks.
(And use assholes like Marjorie 3 toes, Boobert and Gaetz to keep you distracted from it. Never sit on your laurels, especially as Kansas may be a one off...)
