Of course I don't know if our country will make it out of this horrible Trump era...

but there is one thing that I fear is happening:
There's a new creepified generation of politicians being formed. After seeing what Trump accomplished, there are some evil types standing in the shadows, taking notes, and waiting to repeat this mess, over and over.

1. I know...the line from Ike-Nixon-Reagan-Dubya-Trump...

...seems it can't get worse, doesn't it? (I'm not counting Ford or Bush I...they were minor upward blips) But it is going to get worse. There will be GOP Presidents worse--much worse--than Trump, as the moronification of America proceeds apace. Not even Mencken could have predicted how bad this will get.

2. Hear, Effing, hear!!

I was thinking it and you said it.

"Think Local" takes on a whole other meaning. School boards, city councils, mayors....blah, blah, blah. But, there are glimmers of hope.

Cheers.

3. oh we will survive!

We are stronger than one group of misfits.

The tea party has been growing for eight years, and they are nothing new. Now that they got a guy into the WH, we on the left will fight just as hard to get it back. Maybe sooner than you think!

4. Then again, I don't know how much better it would have been under President Scott Walker.

The right wing has long been on a path towards greater and greater fact-resistance. I really don't know what to do about that anymore.
