The tax bill wasn't a scam. It was armed robbery.

The gun used was the constitution which is backed up by law enforcement and the military.

A scam is when the mark doesn't know he's being conned. But most of us knew fully well we were victims of the biggest robbery in history. Who needs to break into Fort Knox when you can just pass a law to enrich your donors and yourself?

This cannot stand. The instant there is a Democratic president and congress, it should be reversed, as well as all the presidential orders issued by Trump. It will take a while, but our government must be repaired.

And this is not just a case of our tribe vs their tribe. There seems to be something genetically wrong with elected Republicans. They lack empathy and plain human decency. We must ensure that people of their ilk never again come to power.

Never again ask "How did Germans let it hapen?"

We know now, because we're on the same horrible path.

The only ones who can (lawfully) stop it right now are the Republicans.

Yet, the Republican Party has chosen to nothing to stop the madness.

So are the rest of us helpless?

Seems so.

And if you think these thoughts are extreme/insane/out of line, how long will you wait to confirm that my beliefs are out of line? And when is "too late," "too late?"

One more thought: Who among us will, in some future day, be saying, "I didn't know." or, "I was only following orders."

Sorry people. This is how it begins.

Like dog shit on your shoe

You wipe. You scrape. You might even try to wash it off.

But, no matter what you do, the smell always seems to be there.

That's the way it's going to be with Trump.

Long after he goes away, the stench will remain with us.

Why are Republicans always such dicks?

Virtually every elected Republican seems to lack sympathy, empathy, decency, and just plain humanity.

What's wrong with these people?

They're putting together a health care plan to fuck millions.

They want only vanilla, "Christian," Republicans to have the right to vote.

Their denial of global warming screws their own progeny.

They don't care about poverty and homelessness in America.

They don't care if children are not educated and/or hungry.

They consistently play to racism, bigotry and homophobia.

They really don't give a rat's ass about the unemployed.

They've closed ranks behind an unbalanced president.

Their vision of the future doesn't extend beyond the next election.

They've raised hypocrisy to an art form.

They've turned their backs on fairness and a level playing field.

Their attitude seems to be: "I'm okay. Fuck everyone else."

What's wrong with these people?

The Civil War never ended

The media recently focused on Trump's spewing out his ignorance about the Civil War, his Andrew Jackson crap, etc.

But one issue that the media never focuses on is that the Civil War never really ended.

The main issue of the Civil War was states rights vs federalism. After all, states rights was an argument that states, in which it was okay to own slaves, could continue to hold slaves.

The North "won," sorta. The cannons stopped, but institutionalized racism continues to oppress America's black population till this very day. Call it what you will. But to me, it's nothing more but slavery "lite."

(Don't believe it? Do a count of how many white cops have been exonerated of murdering black human beings. Do a count of the number of blacks incarcerated in prison, for insanely long sentences, for possessing an ounce of weed.)

And the Republican Party, the party of today's South, and of most of the rest of rural America, are the major protectors and enforcers of institutional slavery.

Like it or not, it's the reason they keep winning elections and are today in charge of all branches of government.

I believe that the majority of Americans are not racists. And I also believe that those who are have found tactics that include gerrymandering, phony voter ID schemes, fixed voting machines, and other methods that we are not even aware of to use sleazy, gangster-like schemes to hold onto power.

So if the Civil War was about doing away with slavery, the Union lost. And so did every black human being in America.

Let me say it once again. The Civil War never ended.
