Fuck this shit

It's people like this that will fuck us in the 2022 election. Just because you didn't get every single little thing checked off your list doesn't mean you throw away the whole damn party. I'm sick of that noise.

Listen, I am poor as all fuck. Super poverty. We have been super poor for a long time. 2020 was going to be my year to really rise up...get away from my abusive husband, get a new apartment with just me and my kids, finally have a little financial success and start to rise up. But....my mom died. Then the pandemic. We both lost our jobs. Our kids school went full virtual. I have some heart shit so we worked on protecting me. And it's been a shitshow ever since. My dad died a few months ago and things have gone downhill. I get it. Everything fucking sucks right now. It's difficult to get help. It's difficult to get work, especially when we were taking care of my dad and now has estate. And my kids are virtual again. I am so Fucking angry that everything is mismanaged. I am so angry that it seems like we're going to keep drowning. I'm so angry that everything is a mess. Is it the Dems fault? Are you fucking kidding me? Dems would LOVE to help people get all of their basic needs net - raise SNAP,universal healthcare for all, universal basic wage, easier access to housing....all the shit the GOP cries about. But....we didn't have control. The GOP has blocked us from doing the right thing every.step.of.the.way. When Dems make progress, we get blocked by lawsuits seen before Trump-appointed judges and appeals to the Supreme Court stacked by the GOP. Fuck, I live in a "blue" (lol) state with a Dem governor. Our GOP legislature strangled his ability to protect our citizens. They stripped him of his ability to declare states of emergency and issue mandates. And these same fuckers turn around and complain that he is not doing anything.

I have kids in school and I have watched in horror as "moms for liberty" assholes screamed at your school board and teachers, send death threats, and harassed little kids. All because of virtual school and masks. Now our school board is afraid to make big moves because they kinda don't want their families threatened again. When our dems take a stand they get threats of violence and death and lawsuits. People show up to their offices and houses with guns. Everything we try to enact gets called, "waah waah socialism." How can you work with that?

Has the author paid attention to ANYTHING in the last 2 years? I'm not 100% happy with all dems all the time, too, but the writing is on the damn wall.
