Way out at sea. I just posted this in response to the Pecker immunity article on the Hill.

This thing is just surreal. I mean, did you ever think we'd be here? With two campaign officials convicted of 8 felony counts each, and Trump an 'unindicted co-conspirator?' Did you ever think we'd have a president as corrupt or profoundly ignorant? Did you ever think we'd have a president who did not understand Puerto Rico was part of the US?

Did you ever think we'd have a president who has such a childish understanding of international trade that he imposes tariffs, hurting both US consumers and costing ultimately hundreds of thousands of jobs?

Did you ever think we'd have a president whose campaign, at least, and possibly who did himself, collude with a hostile foreign power to win an election? Did you ever think we'd have a president who is now being talked about in the same breath as the word 'treason?'

Never in a million years. I would never, ever have thought this country could fall so far so fast. I'm just plain disgusted. We've had a bunch of 'do-nothing' ideologues in Congress since 2016, and all they've done is give a giant tax cut to billionaires and corporations that has broken the budget, and at the same time bumped the military budget past all common sense. And a space force?

Really?

Perhaps someone could explain to me how a space force is better for the American people than massive infrastructure upgrades? or healthcare? or expanded Social Security?

Just wondering, because...well...excuse me while I go throw up.
