Anyone else here feel we are in the middle of a perfect storm?

How can things get more bizarre? Trump, a child who lies with every breath he takes. A republican party that has sabotaged our healthcare system. We are screwed when it comes to health care. A party that is terrified of the monster they created. Their base, who are people that deny realty and facts. There are many more examples.

I truly believe we are in the middle of a perfect storm and there is not a dam thing we can do about it. All we can do is try to pick up the pieces after something really bad happens. Does anybody here feel the same way I do. Nothing makes sense anymore.

1. Yes

As my good friend from China said yesterday - what has happened to the great America is just sad. It is now just for money.

6. Good news has become rare in America.

 

For people like myself who always try to do the right things in our lives, we are outcasts. For me most people in America are not doing the right things or they just check out. They ignore whats happening.

9. There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man....

It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

12. I think we've been sliding this way for awhile.

We now have a new norm for how leaders can behave toward the populace. I guess that's the message we are supposed to get.

13. We should NOT accept

the latest actions as normal. The gop treats us as though we are servants, with no say in anything they want to do. I say we HAVE to fight back, demand our rights. Are we just supposed to pay taxes, and let them do as they please? I say let us get the list of those wealthiest people who will be betting the large tax breaks. Picket outside their houses, and everywhere they go. Shame them into backing off. Picket outside the homes of the gop like Addison "Mitch" McConnell, Paul "ButtBoy" Ryan and a few others. Maybe their families will have some semblence of shame for what these creeps are doing? Make things uncomfortable for them whenever they show their faces in public. DEMAND the elections be supervised, to make them fair for the first time in years. Take back this country from the "lords" who think they rule like royalty.

18. I totally agree. And call the media on their pro-ruling elite governance.

14. If Trump gets a couple of more SCOTUS appointees it will set off a tidal wave.

The billionaires are after the court. We cannot allow them to get to it.

15. doesn't fucking help that liberals ignore the real cause

of most of this shit - including creating a country where people like bush and palin and trump are considered 'acceptable' in the white house.

1000 coordinated radio stations. and many of them the loudest in the country, dominating noise in their states, and they will be blasting fear and directing blame when the next national emergency hits. the last big one we let them lie us into a multitrillion dollar million fatality disaster in iraq.
