This is the world we live in.

As we step in this new and extremely LARGE next step in the de-evolution of this country people need to wrap their heads around that is going on.

There is not a single person who voted Trump who does not know he is a POS.

AND, at the core is it NOT about Trump.

The fucker said it a year ago - he could shoot someone in downtown NYC and his people would still support him.

There is literally nothing he has or will do that they won't defend, and it is fools gold for us to focus on HIM.

We live in a fact free country now. All the abhorrent shit this dolt does that us america hating types scream about will immediately and virulently be attacked as partisanship and being sore losers.

Republicans now have full control of this country - congress for the next four years at least, governorships and state houses.

They got to this point by doggedly and with great focus anger and hatred over three decades.

We can tilt the Trump windmill or we can get ready for a LONG, LONG fight that won't see fruition in some of our lives, and do what they did and fight, tooth and nail, like our lives depend on it, at every level, and fight tough and dirty like they do.
