Reading time: 5 minutes
How likely is it that the Dems are going to hold on to the majorities in Congress?

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.

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.

If only there were some way out of this abusive relationshp!

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.

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 […]
