Ignoring Trump's vile and outrageous nonsense is a natural self-protection mechanism. It hurts our

minds and souls to allow it into our thoughts. And yet we must.

We cannot let him occupy that part of the political spectrum we have always labelled "Republican" or "conservative". He is so much worse than that. He is a fascistic dictator wannabe who is capable of cheerfully killing as many of us as he deems necessary to gain and preserve absolute unfettered power.

Donald Trump and those who enthusiastically aid him are monsters. We need to stay alarmed and angry about their ongoing agenda to destroy our democracy and nation.

Paying attention may be painful, but do it, OK?

I know this verse has been posted here before, but it is just so damn relevant:

"Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity."

---from "The Second Coming" by William Butler Yeats.

"Which Side Are You On?" is a classic labor anthem written by Florence Reece, sung by Woody

Guthrie and covered by Pete Seeger and dozens of others. It marked an inflection point in labor and American history and its lyrics stated plainly that "there ain't no neutrals".

Back then, the "sides" were those who supported labor or those who supported wealthy mine owners.

Today, the "sides" are those wanting to protect and preserve democracy or those who want to tear it down.

EVERY candidate should be asked "Which Side Are You On?" and it wouldn't hurt to open every Democratic campaign event with a reworded version of the tune Woody sang.

Saying that MAGA Republicans are "semi-fascist" is sorta like saying that Stormy is "unchaste".

It is not false but it is a kind understatement.

To those still wearing their red MAGA caps: "Here's your sign!"

To those who contributed more than 25 cents to Trump's campaigns: Here's your sign!

Believe Tump won the 2020 election? Here's your sign!

Think Trump is a great businessman? Here's your sign!

Believe Trump declassified all those Classified and Top Secret documents? Here's your sign!

And, finally, if you think Trump gives a big brown rat's ass about you or yours--- "HERE'S YOUR SIGN!"

There is a rumor going around that there is actually a photo of Sen. Cotton smiling.

It is difficult to believe, but apparently he had just seen a beagle puppy get run over by an 18-wheeler so it just might be true.

If anyone has a copy of the pic, please post it.


Republicans---who has not longed to hear those "three little words"? Some of us spent

years hoping to hear them and to find someone to say them to.

Say "three little words" now: "I was wrong!"

Follow up by scraping off those now-embarrassing bumperstickers, taking down the "Trump Won!" flags and burning those noxious MAGA caps.

Now, start smiling at and waving to your neighbors, block all that hateful social media trash and, come November, vote against any candidate who still supports ---- "him".

In short, rejoin the Amerivcan democracy.

It all starts with those "three little words".

To Democrats searching for a "perfect" candidate---advice from Mick and the lads:

"You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes, well, you just might find
You get what you need!"

Just who the hell is this "public" that the Trumplicans keep telling us is demanding to

see every last word of the DOJ 's affadavit in support of their search warrant, a full specific inventory of all that was seized and the identities of all the people who provided information to the FBI as to the nature and location of the stolen documents?

It seems to consist of folks like Trump's ever-changing legal staff, Steve Bannon, Jim Jordan, Kevin McCarthy and tfg himself.

Newsflash, citizens: THAT AIN'T "THE PUBLIC"! That's a herd o' whores!

We need to explain to Republican midterm candidates that they can't be "sort of" in favor

of democracy or "sort of" pro choice any more than they could be "sort of" pregnant.
