I loved this. (What am I doing wrong embedding Tweet??)

Sound familiar? Headlines from 1934.


Read down through the thread to see what American Rabbis had to say.

I'm just done. I'm so depressed by the rising fascism. How can

we fight it? The courts aren't going to help us. I fear the election process is so contaminated that even if we have millions more vote for Democrats, we will lose due to meddling with the count. The military won't protect us.
I just want to go somewhere else to live. Want to take my son and granddaughter and leave.

Today hasn't been a happy day for me. My anger has turned to rage at

this administration. Personally, I was forced to give up on attending my granddaughter's belated birthday party because her mother wouldn't allow me to take her to it.

So I told her mother off for messing up plans for the thousandth time and that I would not drive the 100 miles to get her next weekend.

Then I called my Republican Senator's office (Boozman) and for the first time tried to speak clearly. Told the lady that this immigration/gawd-awful detention shit had driven me to my limit. That we had an insane fascist/racist man in the WH and that I demanded Boozman do something. Suggested using the 25th. Amendment to remove him or impeach the sucker. My language was not good. She was horrified by my saying fascist and that my uncles had died 60 years ago fighting the same mentally damaged type as our 45th. She just said she'd "pass my comments on". I bet.

John Roberts on the company behind the detention centers and their

profits made tax exempt. This may have been posted before.


Last year, Core Civic made about $180 million dollars, and paid out 90% of that as dividends to its investors. The company is classified by the IRS as a Real Estate Investment Trust, which means it doesn't pay federal income tax on most of its earnings, nor do its investors. 2/12
