1. Draining the White Nationalist Cop Swamp one at a time

when this trumpian nightmare is over and these goddamn racist miscreants crawl back under the rock from whence they came. This shit is insane. All the time, every day, but I better get real. Every day for the last 400 years this shit has been insane!!! 400 years to get ingrained into the very DNA of every person who is proud to be a trumpian racist and/or trumpian murderer, whether under the authority of badge and gun or militia madness.

If they kick things up to a Civil War II, guess what? They will lose again.

4. Things have changed in Arkansas.

In today's senatorial elections, it's the whites who now pick Cotton.
