It’s my blog, and I’ll publish off topic stuff if I want to, and the Oxford comma is one of my things, so I’m publishing this, so there. Also, too, another thing I have is ambiguity.
It's been five long years of blogging the Trump years. We've laughed, we've cried, we've pulled some of our remaining hair out, but we've made it. It is almost done and our democracy, nation, and souls are still largely intact. Unfortunately, we're not through.There is much more to come as we stitch ourselves back together like some kind of common Frankenstein monster as we recover from the PTSD that Trump gave us and the needless deaths and suffering from #COVID19. We also have to #BidenHarris honest, oppose Republican obstructionism anti-democratic tendencies, and whatever other black swans await us. All of which will be addressed using good old-fashioned snarcky, sarcasticky, profaney fun and psychological insights.
The GOP & the White House are acting like they are a single party democracy. They oppress the vote, gerrymander districts, grift, graft, and klept. Neither are even attempting to govern.

In what has to be one of the most demoralizing beginnings to any president’s administration, we get a demoralizing speech, and a demoralizing moment embedded in that speech. The ruthless exploitation of a Gold Star widow’s grief for a boast about the longest sustained applause. Iwanka proving that the turd doesn’t fall far from the ass, stands by and looks on.
The Ol’ Pussy Grabber said words to Congress & everyone has lost their minds, “He’s so dreamy! He’s so presidential!” Stop it! Stop it right now! Nothing has changed. It’s still the Ol’ Pussy Grabber.
How many of the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s voters are now regretting their choice? How many are shocked or surprised or scared of what’s he’s doing in office? I’ve got one question: What did you think he was going to do?
Our great civics lesson continues! The Founding Fathers knew that compromise was the heart of democracy. Our Constitution and Bill of Rights are the result of compromise. When the bare majority insists on dictating to the bare minority, revolution will follow. Demand compromise!
