    This is exactly how I see things. Somehow we have to find a way to crush the despots into oblivion. They've had their chance and failed to be faithful stewards of our democracy at every fucking turn.

    ...that our elections are now compromised by the Russians, Chinese, N Korean governments and yes, even the GOP.
    While I admire those who cling to the idea that democracy will prevail, I'm fearful that more drastic days are in front of us. And while the Orange One is an easy to hate personality, there's none more loathsome and hateful than NC republicans. They really go out of their way to inflict tyranny onto the least and most vulnerable citizens of this fascist plutocracy. 2 cents and all it's worth

    My ideas about what to do are pretty pedestrian, but that's where we are:

    Register people to vote.
    Get voters to the polls or to absentee ballots.
    Spread the word about candidates, even when you don't want to.
    Become a nag about voting.

    Keep posting your thoughts and worries. It helps others (me) when I see folks out there expressing their outrage and dismay. Not just with Trump, but all the way down to local Republican politicians who are every bit as culpable as the Orange Menace.

    Write something somewhere every day. Even if you have to repeat yourself.


    I was thinking that it would be good to bring back fragging.

    What's amazing is that anyone believes this shit.
