Horror story to the max...

While there is always room for better organization and shifting of administrative duties in a gigantic body of governing, this agenda of the Republicans has been to favor, benefit and funnel money to already rich callous white men and their obsessive greed driven corporations for the benefit of themselves and the detriment of everyone else.
Their intolerance, fear, disrespect, bigotry, cruelty, misogyny and racism know no boundaries. Their character is void of any decency or humanity. They don’t even bother to hide it anymore under the guise of fucked up patriotism and Christianity.
They are the worst of human wretchedness.

While it is always good to know they will all eventually die and turn to dirt, the misery and terror they create or try to create for everyone and everything on the planet will never stop.

Obviously they must be stopped.
Obviously a lot of us will be sickened and soul battered in the process.
Obviously we need to get passionately angry and
With every ounce of our strength and courage.
Against all the mountains of insanity and incredulous ignorance, meanness and hate.
Against the dozens of WTF moments that pile up in unbelievable amounts daily.

The offensiveness and stupidity knocks the air out of my heart and brain several times a day.
I have to slap myself out of agonizing anxiety and disbelief and sadness after every outrageous new headline.

The domestic terror perpetrated by this administration is overwhelming.

I’m not a powerful person. I tend to avoid conflict and my nature is to draw myself into whatever protective sanctuary is nearby and huddle for awhile.
But I am stubborn.
And very angry.
And I am my sisters’, brothers’, children’s, all creatures great and small, all things bright and beautiful’s keeper.
So is every DUer here and lurking.
There is power there.
And we have “numbers too big too ignore”

Also, I worked the polls in Ohio yesterday.
In a very small, yuppy- encroached, used-to-be-rural area precinct that was stat-wise, redder than blue, whiter than non-the voter turnout was 21%

Cool takeaway from the public posted results plus my observations at the end of the day:
Every single first time 18 year old voter requested the Democratic Ballot! Mostly young women. Every single twenty something voter but 1 who I checked in declared Democrat...most of them women. Oh
and yeah, there were quite a few, very cool, very confident 60+ Liberals making their voting voices heard!
By far, mostly women

Women, give voice to your fury. Men, listen.


To the point. And worth a serious listen. Time IS up. It has been brooding for GENERATIONS.
“The innocuous makes way for the horrific”

Fellow women and gentle men must address what leads to this fury. Both. Together.

+++she speaks the truth. If whiny assed Republicans or others...

are still threatened, what a pathetic pity. She needs no one’s approval or permission to tell it like it is.

This is the passion we need, the voice of our national anger! Students vs Guns...


At the U.S. Capital National Walkout Day.

Combine their passion, courage and outrage with experience and power. A massive “weapon” of our own...together. To fight without bullets but with votes.

Allen Clifton: Jake Tapper Hits Trump Where it Hurts the Most...


(I know words in editorials won’t get rid of the wretched Cretin ruining our nation, but some of us have few outlets beyond our vote and online advocacy for our fear, our rage and our disgust that we are here, with this vile conmanpunk soiling our world, our lives and our history, if not our very existence.)

Joshua Dubois: What The President (Barack Obama) Secretly Did at Sandy Hook Elem. School...


We haven’t had a leader, a decent human being, a grown man in The White House since the day Barack Obama’s term was over.

Can You Spot a Liar? Enlightening article about con artists...


Enlightening article by Olga Khazan from Jan. 2016
Highlighting an interview with the author of “The Confidence Game”, Maria Konnikova.

It’s the cretin in the White House to the core.
In particular, her explanation of the “dark triad”...

(Snipped excerpt):

“Konnikova: The dark triad is three things, obviously, including psychopathy, the inability to feel emotion in the way that normal people do. It’s kind of a lack of empathy. Your brain is actually different, you process emotional stimuli differently. To you, they don’t mean that much. It’s very difficult for a non-psychopath to understand, but basically everything that would really make you emotionally engaged would leave you cold as a psychopath, so that’s one part of it.

The second part is narcissism, this overblown ego where you not only think you’re just the best thing that’s ever happened to anyone, but you also think you deserve a lot. You deserve basically everyone to bow down to you. And you have it coming to you, all these good things. So if you notice a lot of the con artists in the book, they want shortcuts, they don’t want to work hard for their rewards, because they think they deserve them. They are people who steal credentials because they don’t feel like getting a Ph.D. But they think they’re smarter than the people with Ph.D.s.

Finally, it's Machiavellianism, or the ability to manipulate people into doing what you want. Kind of like Machiavelli’s Ideal Prince, you have your own ends and you use whatever means you want to get there. And you’re very good at tricking those people and getting them to do what you want.“
