With the Virginia governor's race, our democracy officially died, we are now a zombie nation, dead, but just not knowing it.

We Made Nice with Racists, Now We are #ZombieNation


Reading time: 5 minutes
Suburban white voters once again powered a GQP victory seduced by the sweet Siren song of racist dog whistling. Maybe we really should just divide ourselves into red and blue countries and dissolve the United States.

Why aren't Republican States pushing vaccines and healthcare?

We’re So Fucked: The Vaccination Rates, Political Polarization, and Presidential Voting, edition


Reading time: 5 minutes
We all know about the hatred the GQP has for providing healthcare for its citizens. They’ve tried to stop the ACA, they don’t exapand Medicaid, they don’t fund public health, anything and everything. Now, we find that there is a near perfect correlation between #COVID19 vaccination rates and voting in the 2020 presidential election. Guess what that means? It means we’re so fucked.

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.

Emma Lazarus, The New Colossus, Ken Cuccinelli, immigration

Don’t Let ‘Em Gaslight YOU! Know the Poem.


Reading Time: 4 minutes
Every now and then someone — usually the Ol’ Pussy Grabber — from the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s regime says the quiet part out loud. And, then there are those that make it so very clear and plain and obvious what the quiet part is by their asinine statements that they needn’t bother either saying it out loud. Of course, I’m referring to Ken Cuccinelli’s comments about the Statue of Liberty and immigration. We already knew that they were going after all immigrants except the pressed and white ones. We he made clear was that they were working hard to gaslight us about it. Don’t let them gaslight you! Know the poem.
