After these last 4 years

After these last 4 years I will never be able to look at my fellow Americans the same. Even now when I ride the bus or see people at the store I think 4 of the next 10 people I see are either racist or just plain crazy. Probably both but at least one of the two. I'm extremely sorry to say that my Sister falls into the racist category and I have very strong suspicions that my Brother is a Qanon believer as well as racist. I also STRONGLY suspect he's a member of a militia there in Arizona. We don't communicate much but from our last conversation ,in person anyway as our e-mails are few and far between, the things he alluded to while not quite saying really gave me pause. They both are well aware of my political leaning and so we keep well away from those topics the few times we meet or converse.

Anyway..... I don't know why I am writing this except maybe to express my almost total disillusionment with both my blood family and my national family, for want to a better way to put it. The only thing that keeps me going sometimes is this site and the polls tbh.

There is something deeply wrong with our country if so many of us can be so hateful and so gullible.

2. The only difference now is that OrangeAnus emboldened them to come out

into the daylight. They were there before. They have always been there. They are just more brazen now. And maybe, that is a good thing.
