I just can't help thinking when I see that CPAC crowd on TV: "Scum of the earth"

Certainly scum of the nation. Anyone who can publicly support and revere Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and MTG just have to be the lowest of the low. It just blows my mind that people choose to ignore the immorality of these folks and their lying scamming, scheming
and grifting that actually hurts themselves. But then, I just finished watching the Bernie Madoff story and I shake my head.

We have lost the dream.

Y'all Qaeda's Nat-C GOP almost makes one long for the days of Barry Goldwater and William F. Buckley, Jr. .

Dreams die first.

It's okay. Dreams are like butterflies and friends, if they're not free to roam, they suffer and die.
We don't take prisoners, we have ongoing friendships.
Dreams are like that.

Steve Bannon, Donald Trump and MTG are playing to their bases' undying love of hard-core believers, their unshakable faith in the fools and the dreamers, their holy devotion to "sins of the ages". Machiavelli and Darwin always apply.

Those that succeed in their endeavors do it through sentient well-reasoned of all facts in play, then engaging in time appropriate meticulous prior planning before taking each and all subsequent steps.

I'm in Caddo Parish, Louisiana.

Louisiana and all adjoining states are run by Y'all Qaeda's Nat-C Fascist GOP.

Disheartening to say the least.

My Great Grandfather fought for the Union in war against the traitors.

Caddo Parish was the last Military Stronghold of the traitorous insurrectionists.

Nonetheless, I work within arms reach of my ass. I vote. I build reason based meaningful relationships with others throughout our community.

I take steps towards being a part of whatever local change I would like to see.

I vote with my dollars and my feet.

It's the way I wave the flag of my heart.

I love the ones I'm with.
