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 keep #BidenHarris honest & progressive, 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.

We’re seeing MAGA Nation acting crazier and crazier with them taking ivermectin, avoiding the ICU’s, and nebulizing hydrogen peroxide to treat #COVID19 and even though the AZ fraudit found the election to be legitimate, they still believe it had fraud and the election was stolen.
