16. That's is on the rest of you. You have been repeatedly warned, you foolhardly

insist on going where people you supposedly need cannot follow while pretending you have the same goals but must insist on forwarding a person substantially antithetical to them.

I said in 2012 my vote was for time to get our shit together, that bid has only further deteriorated from my perspective. No heads have put on straight, they are deeper down the rabbit hole and reduced to the Supreme Court hostage threats. A threat that seems to not even seriously consider reining in the surveillance state, reversing corporate dominance, strengthening and asserting civil liberties, controlling and demilitarizing the police, accountability for positions of authority, equality under the law, or anything really but abortion and as a figleaf, do nothing lip service for civil rights.

That's it! The full range of issues the court deals with is of the most flimsy concern and as such is something I'm forced to see as a hostage threat against abortion and essentially ONLY that, which is being used as the rallying cry to demand surrender in every other area of policy and expectation of those we elect.

Want solidarity? When are certain folks going to start offering any in this dynamic? Everything else is not just flotsam to be sacrificed on the alter of one issue that despite the Catbird seat for focus for a generation or two is slipping because the most impacted part of the population isn't even close to being on the same page and/or priority level about.

I strongly support choice but it isn't the king issue that makes all others pawns to be sacrificed.

We can and must do better than that and no I'm not going to knuckle under to hostage taking.
