i think the US is fucked in general.

this ain't goin away. i'm a fucking clown by nature, easy going, always a bright side kind of guy.

it's not possible now. i can't stand it. the trumpty dumpsters are hell bent on destroying America in all instances. healthcare, environment, education, science, etc. all rational thought is now given over to tax cuts, no fags or colored people of any kind, and the general raping of our obviously delicate environment.

i can't stand it anymore. where is normal rational thought? Human/animal consideration?

Here's a couple for you rich fuckers.

"How will I eat when there is no one to grow or harvest my food?"

"Or pump my gas?"

"Or rebuild my flood-plain-anyhow-built mansion?"

Texas is seriously fucked and so is the rest of the country accordingly.

please add thoughts.

1. Have faith my friend ..what lifted my spirits was the many images coming out of texas

..of people helping people ..not the staged photo op of trumpf and pence ... But the genuine compassion for one another. The loss of life is so sad my father was telling me about the family of six in a van attempting to get away from the flooding--they didn't make it....so very sad. Yet many stories coming out about heroic rescues.

As for the greedy filthy rich ...they can't take it with them...sure they can rebuild, relocate but they have to look at themselves everyday in the mirror ...and live with that. And, frankly they just dont give a damn...

2. It helps to step away from politics occasionally.

When I've had enough I retreat and focus on other things, nature, my animals, or reading a sci-fi novel. You do whatever takes your mind off the current situation. The first step is turning off the television, radio and computer.

You have to take care of you first.

4. I felt that way last winter - until the Women's March.

That's when I knew in my heart that we will prevail. Plain old human decency will prevail.

6. We are

Each republican fuckwittery get worse and the repurcusions are lesser.

Nixon had to step down ahead of impeachment and dozens of people were convicted over watergate.

Reagen got the get out of jail free card based on the "I am clueless" defense, and a handful of his rubes got convicted over selling arms to Iran to fund contras in south america.

Literally nothing happened to anyone for W lying the country into Iraq.

All of which has less to a POTUS and party that are full on coopted by Russia and we need to catch an inside straight on the river to have any justice and responsibility meted.

Even if that occurs, the stupid in this country is at DEFCON 1.

Decades of losing ground and our only victories have been minor pushbacks followed by the stupid in this country going ape shit and going full on blow it all up.

We MIGHT, M I G H T see some justice for 45 and some of his crew, but the right still has skull fucked the soul out of 2/3 of our family, friends and neighbors.

7. Read this book. It's wonderful:

https://www.amazon.com/Franklin-Winston-Intimate-Portrait-Friendship/dp/0812972821

And when you see what Churchill was up against, and see how he never, ever, even once allowed himself to be defeated, you see the strength we will need to fight the very real threat you describe. Victory must be assumed, and if we do that, we will have it.

8. Real Trumpers are maybe 25% of us and have always been here

 

I have heard Republicans calling for impeachment. We will be rid of him.
What worries me more is a state like Texas, where people willingly allow toxic factories in their neighborhoods. And those who give away their power.

9. Unless we get CO2 levels under control, none of this will matter.

Nuclear war and global climate change are the biggest known threats to the human race.
