Here's a lousy photo of my 2018 Fair Cake. Won for 8th. year.

This sums up the 'Trump GOP' perfectly.

http://www.stonekettle.com/2018/08/zero-sum.html?m=1

"You've heard me say this many times before: Itís not heaven if everybody gets to go.† The best part about Conservative Heaven isnít being up there with Jesus, no, itís gloating at the poor saps burning forever down below. Ha ha HAH. Weíre Saved, fuck you, losers! And that horrible selfish religion shapes everything else. We got ours, our healthcare, our food, our clean water, our homes, our jobs, our retirement, our stock options, our savings, our opportunity, our salvation, so fuck you. The best part of America is that everybody doesnít get to go. Thereís no point in privilege if everybody is privileged. You canít think of yourself as exceptional if†everybody†is exceptional. Thereís no point in being rich if everybody else is rich too. They see liberty and justice and freedom as a zero sum game. If others get more, they are somehow diminished, lessened, cheated of their exalted status and made average.

This is the very core of modern Republicanism where†everything†is for profit, prisons, healthcare, education,†religion, civil rights, equality, justice, liberty, all of it for money. And so long as you get yours, well, then to hell with everybody else because thereís not enough to go around and heaven isnít heaven if everybody gets to go.

These people are almost literally the rich sons of bitches who rowed away from the Titanic in half empty lifeboats as 1500 people drowned in freezing water behind them. Fuck you, losers! I got mine."

Well, I booked my fall trip to Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania,

Poland, and the Czech Republic. If Russia invades one of the Baltic states, I'll have a ring side seat.

Is it true? Does GOP now mean 'Government of Putin'?

We were warned way back in 1956 by Khrushchev.

Read down through the thread to see what American Rabbis had to say.

I'm just done. I'm so depressed by the rising fascism. How can

we fight it? The courts aren't going to help us. I fear the election process is so contaminated that even if we have millions more vote for Democrats, we will lose due to meddling with the count. The military won't protect us.
I just want to go somewhere else to live. Want to take my son and granddaughter and leave.

Today hasn't been a happy day for me. My anger has turned to rage at

this administration. Personally, I was forced to give up on attending my granddaughter's belated birthday party because her mother wouldn't allow me to take her to it.

So I told her mother off for messing up plans for the thousandth time and that I would not drive the 100 miles to get her next weekend.

Then I called my Republican Senator's office (Boozman) and for the first time tried to speak clearly. Told the lady that this immigration/gawd-awful detention shit had driven me to my limit. That we had an insane fascist/racist man in the WH and that I demanded Boozman do something. Suggested using the 25th. Amendment to remove him or impeach the sucker. My language was not good. She was horrified by my saying fascist and that my uncles had died 60 years ago fighting the same mentally damaged type as our 45th. She just said she'd "pass my comments on". I bet.
