Is this the new normal?

Where is this shit going to end? Seriously. . . What is it going to take to get these motherfuckers out? They have broken the law so many times and are still doing so in plain sight. Every goddamn time we have a corrupt administration, it just so happens that it's republican (Nixon, Reagan, Bush 1, Bush 2, Pussy Grabber).

I don't think I'll live to see any respect restored to us as a nation, as it will take a long, goddamned time.

I cannot imagine being a young person today and only being personally familiar with THIS kind of shit going on and having trash like this in the White House. . .

The only positive I can pretend to spin out of Pussy Grabber's sojourn in the White House is that I can't think of a more odious person the repigs could possibly nominate ever again. . . OF COURSE I am assuredly WRONG. . . Those assholes never fail to disappoint--just look at the 'talent' in Pussy Grabber's Cabinet. . .

4. it is if the GOP is allowed any input

the party has cast their lot with the "rules free, win at any cost, ends justifies the means" school of thought. (and operation) That die is cast. If ethics and a concern for greater good are to be rebuilt into our public places .. the GOP can have no part. That simple.

8. Desperate times call for desperate measures. And the GOP has grown increasingly desperate.

Republicans have seen the writing on the wall (social progression, increased secularism, changing demographics, etc.), so their tactics have become increasingly extreme (intense voter suppression and gerrymandering, uber-deregulation and uber-privatization, full-throated attacks on science and public education, persistent attacks on the "liberal media" to help shift the Overton Window, mainstreaming what should be fringe media, stealing a Supreme Court seat and packing the judiciary with right wing ideologues, aligning with dictators who share the goal of undermining democracy for personal enrichment, replacing the dog whistle with a bullhorn, and so on). They can still take comfort in a tyranny of the minority system which, paradoxically, makes major structural reform nearly impossible to bring about for the very reasons why such reform is so desperately needed. Still, they have reason to fear and thwart the impacts of social evolution. They are acting accordingly while they still can.

6. traitortrump continues to provide ever greater opportunities to totally upend

the great republicon siege of the US over the last 50 years.

The opportunities for real FDR/LBJ type progress are here again . . .

. . . provided we Dems do not miss the opportunity - again.

10. Well

IMO, nobody can be worse than Chump, nobody. He's one of a kind, thank dog. Sure, there can and will be bad ones in the future, but nobody like him.

13. I pretty much agree with you. . .

I don't see how they could find somebody more glaringly unqualified in EVERY SINGLE RESPECT. What a repulsive human being at every level.

14. There's always Iwanka.

Make no mistake about it. That's been their plan all along - to have a Trump dynasty and her as first female President.

17. There is

no clear way to reason with tRump supporters or worshippers ignorance and arrogance fuels them. Only facts and truth matter under these circumstances, if people take it seriously or wake up.

Making them happen is obviously the tricky part.
