It is unbelievable that Trump’s approval rating remains as high as it is and even improves! It is unbelievable that 51% of the population thinks he is providing strong and decisive leadership in during the time of COVID19. And, we’re killing people over social distancing and wearing masks? People are taking hydroxycloroquine, calling about the safety of bleach, and not wearing masks? Why does Trump have any credibility with anyone since we all know it is bullshit? Science can explain…

Happy end of Autism Awareness Month! It looks like Zoom meetings are the great equalizer for us socially awkward autistics!

By now it is pretty clear that something is pretty darn wrong with the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s thinking thingee. It just don’t seem to work well. There’s lots o’ speculation about him having some kinda dementia, well, here we explore the relationship between stress-related disorders and neurodegenerative disease in later life and a primary vascular component.

Call Your MoC about PASSING COVID-19 FUNDING for the Week of Sunday 1 March 2020


Reading time: 3 minutes
The Ol’ Pussy Grabber is back to his narcissism-driven fun and games! He’s trying to gaslight us into believing a pandemic isn’t a pandemic and the sick and dying aren’t the sick and dying. And won’t we all go out and buy stocks again? If not that, let him give the rest of the budget to the billionaire class? It would really help him a lot.

Even the Repubes seem to believe that Congress should mandate the amount spent, where it comes from, and how it’s spent. Do your part to keep them on the straight and narrow: Call your MoC!

A Quickie: Senate Repubes, Options, and Poor Mental Health


Reading Time: 2 minutes
Ever wonder how the Senate Repubes are able to cope with the tremendous stress of being in such a hopeless situation? They can’t not be a Senator and they can’t stand up for their democratic principles and ideals and oppose the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s and Smitch SmcConnell’s authoritarian ways, either! They can just vote for radically unqualified judges and to acquit a clearly guilty Ol’ Pussy Grabber and lay back and act like they enjoy it. Their lives must be pure misery. If only there were some way out of this abusive relationshp!

Following Trump and Barr into Autocracy, Reviewing Masha Gessen’s “Autocracy: Rules for Survival”


Reading Time: 5 minutes
If you are as worried sick as I am about the fate of our democracy, then you’ll want to read my review of Masha Gessen’s 2016 article, Autocracy: Rules for Survival that was published in The New York Review of Books. When we compare her six rules to the sorry state of affairs, real despair sets in. It’s like watching one of those slasher horror films, you know what’s going to happen and there’s absolutely nothing you can do to stop it. Even though the character is being extremely stupid and doing stuff no one would ever do outside of a movie, you still gotta sit there and watch it.
