Looking at what the uber-wealthy have done to this country.
Looking at how our laws have morphed into protections for the rich.
Looking at how the fascists are undermining the minorities including those of orientations different than their own.
At how such a wide swath of Americans embrace such an evil man as Trump (I would have given details but they are too many to list and the readers her most likely know the details).

The intrigue: Conservative critics beyond Boebert have taken issue with Greene shifting from being one of leaderships leading critics to a vocal ally of Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).

Putin's presidential plane left at 14:16 Moscow time, according to FlightRadar data retrieved by NEXTA. While it's not clear where the plane was headed, it disappeared from tracking systems near Tver, a major city north of Moscow.
Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov denied Putin had fled the city, saying he "is working at the Kremlin," according to The Independent and Ukrinform.
The news comes as Wagner forces appear to be descending on Moscow. On Friday, Wagner leader Yevgeny Prigozhin rebelled against Russia's military leadership, accusing Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu of ordering an air strike on Wagner troops in Ukraine./snip

Didn't expect to enjoy it that much but was pleasantly surprised. It's a YA series but sweet in places with a fun mythology to play with.
A nice respite from the doldrums.
This rolled up on me this afternoon and though it's a bit dated I found it nicely said.
