I feel a little less hopeful today.

Yeah, one of THOSE posts.

The ratfuckery going on by Trump and Republicans is off the charts. Today was brutal for me.

I realize Democrats will have good and bad days/weeks and so will the opposition.

At the start of this week Trump was in the crapper in poll after poll and anyone with two brain cells could tell that the Swan interview was a disaster of historic proportions. To offset that, the crazy came back with vegence.

Trump and the executive orders. Russia and the election. Republicans and Kayne West and Green Party "candidates." Trump, Republicans and Russia and social media. Continued Trump and Republican inaction on COVID-19. Trump and the Post Office. Trump and Republican distorted political ads. Trump and Republicans trolling the left with glee and passion to trigger hysteria amongst the libs. And on. And on. And on.

A tsunami of shit hit our shores (again) and we're up to our necks in it. I mean, that's what we get with a chaos presidency.

I honestly feel that Trump can break any law between now and November 3 and the taunt will be "Whatcha going to do about it? I'm president and you're not." I feel the "never ask permission, never apologize" asshole factor will soar to new heights that will shock---I mean SHOCK---Americans in its brazeness.

I knew this was going to get ugly, but it my own naive way, I'm still not prepared.

Keep up the fight.

1. Where are your people from?

I mean, your ancestors - where did they come from?

3. most of it is noise...because its so noisy we are paying attention

 

which is a good thing.

what is more dangerous? the wolf silently creeping up to attack the livestock or a dog rabidly barking and chasing the livestock?

they have been engaged in ratfuckery since at least the 60's as the nation pivoted to embrace of more liberal values.

we all just need to vote, encourage our core group we have influence over to vote and see that legal challenges are made where they should be made.

6. I so understand what you mean by,

"I knew this was going to get ugly, but it my own naive way, I'm still not prepared. "

On election night, i got a pit of fear in my stomach that did not dissipate for weeks. I knew it was going to get bad. After two years, I thought I could not be shocked anymore, and yet, here I am, still being shocked. Naively, I thought surely there are limits to even what trumpco and the republicans can, and would, stoop to.

Nope, no limits.

Last night's "Friday night post office massacre" has embittered me all over again, and filled me with a rage and hatred - again. I knew it was going to be bad, and it still shocks me at least weekly, if not daily.

Given the speed at which his / their desperation and criminality is spiraling up, up, up and out of control, what more can we expect before election day...and in the intervening weeks between election and inauguration? (that is IF the election isn't stolen) The damage they can do....my God, the damage they can do. And their evil spiteful selves will make it as bad as possible, so that Dems can be blamed if we can't fix it in two years.

This can all be laid at the feet of those who have short-changed our education system, and encouraged bombarding them with hate-radio propaganda, in order to create a large, custom-made, controllable, brainwashable base, who are incapable of critical thinking. THIS is the "vast right-wing conspiracy" that Hillary talked about. That was not hyperbole. This moment in time is a direct result of decades of Republican ratfuckery.
