How can I help save our democracy?

Call Your Members of Congress: The Save Our Democracy, edition


Reading time: 5 minutes
As the Trump insurrection riot and TOO response makes clear, our democracy is under direct attack. The GOP really is actively trying to destroy our democracy. It is now all hands on deck. We all have to fight against the conservative authoritarian power grab. One way to do that is to be an engaged, informed, and organized voter. It means keeping up with what your MoM is doing and contacting them frequently. Luckily Indivisible has just the guide to show us how.

Urge Emily Murphy to Sign the Paper

A Quickie: The Pressure @GSAEmily is Under to NOT #SignThePapers is a Sign of Trump’s and the GOP’s Authoritarianism


Reading time: 3 minutes
We all wonder why @GSAEmily doesn’t just sign the papers to ascertain that #BidenHarris are the apparent winners of Election 2020. She is complying in advance with the desires of an authoritarian. She’s heard the messages of Trump and the GOP and is doing what they want. In the meantime, she is responsible for the thousands of deaths from #COVID19 by denying Biden vital information in the transition.

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.

Trump: Unstable Influencer


Is the very model of a very stable genius an unstable influencer? A leadership style that relies on strong-arm tactics, intimidation, humiliation, and name calling is inherently unstable. The leader is not respected by peers, followers, or subordinates.

Trump Voters Are White Raged

Those ding-dang dumb liberals are lettin’ in more and more immigrants and Muslims and promoting blacks and queers over the interests of god-fearing good white Christians! They just ain’t gonna take it no more! They are WHITE RAGED! They’ll stop those liberals from turning […]

America: the Split Brain Version


Reflecting on the disastrous Supreme Court decisions of late, I’ve come to the realization that it isn’t the United Fucking States of Fucking Stupid, it is the United Fucking States with the Split Fucking Brain. Our collective left hand don’t know what the fuck the collective right hand […]

The Republican’s Guide to Presidential Etiquette – The New York Times


When it was President Obama, the nation’s first black president, the Repubes worried, fretted, and sucked their teethes all the time about how his greasy fried chicken eaten fingers would stain the fine brocade of the couches in the First Mansion and his watermelon rinds would be attracting vermin and his singing of old negro spirituals while pleasant would confirm that we had a lowly shucking and jiving president that couldn’t maintain the office with the respect it so richly deserved. What happened?
