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.

Reading time: 4 minutes
Anyone who supports either the Big Lie or the 6 January Insurrection false flag theory are clearly anti-democratic. It is clear that the goal is to create this single-party pseudo-democratic minority-rule autocracy that will quickly and efficiently transfer the nation’s wealth to the one percent, all them to intimidate all rivals, and duke it out with China as they divvy up the remainder of the world’s natural resources.

How does the Republican authoritarian power grab relate to the collapse of rural healthcare?

Covid vaccine mistrust is fueling a spike in rural deaths. Here’s what’s fueling the mistrust. — NBC News

We keep wringing our hands and clutching our pearls about so many of our social problems seeming not to know what to do about them. If you trace the causes of vaccine refusal, you eventually get to the root of so many of our problems, Republican refusal to govern at the federal, state, or local level and active sabotage of social services.
