What's the point any more? If people can actually look at people like Jonie Earnst and Ted Cruz, etc etc and say that's who I want representing me?

If people can hear physicists, biologists, the UN and even the freaking Pentagon for God's sake saying Climate Change is real and is reaching the point of irreversibly, but ignore all of them because Rush Limbaugh or Bill O'Reilly told them Al Gore just made it all up, what's the point?

You can't fix Insanity or Stupidity.

It be one thing if it was just one region but it's not. All but my sister and one cousin in my family is Puke and I live in freaking New York State supposedly a last blue bastion, and even our Governor is only a Dem lite.

This is a civilization that consists of a population where over half don't believe in basic scientific truth anymore, who believe everything Faux Noise tells them, who don't even understand the definitions of socialism, communism, and capitalism let alone how they work, who think all their problems are caused by women, African-Americans and Spanish speaking immigrants, I could go on but what's the point.

They don't want to learn or grow they are happy in their own little Faux fantasy land where even if they screw up and kill this planet with pollution some kindly little old white dude with a beard is going to come down and take their righteous selves to his mansion in the sky.

As long as they get to vote too there is no fixing this. That's all I can think right now. I can't see what's left to hope for? Maybe that a comet or an Asteroid gets us before the effects of slower killing climate change?
