This stain will never wash away

Kidnapped and imprisoned. Five hundred plus children stolen from their parents and caged. Children who may never again see their parents. Parents who may never again see their children.

American "leadership" is guilty of this. Yes, it was Trump and his thugs who did it. Why isn't it still the ultimate crime in your mind? Do you think about it often? Is it in your mind every day?

It was done under the orders of Donald Trump. It was done in the name of America. And five hundred plus children may never again see their parents, and those parents may never again see their children because of the beast named Donald Trump.

Yeah, we're all outraged. But if a mass kidnapping and imprisonment like this had happened just five years ago, wouldn't we have been in the streets? Wouldn't we have stormed the White House? Wouldn't we have demanded the construction of a guillotine?

What is this magic immunity that Trump has to stave off the incredible evilness of his deeds??

I don't know if he can be prosecuted as a war criminal, but he can sure as hell be held accountable for his crimes against humanity. And I won't even start to list them because they are endless.

No American president has ever been prosecuted for his crimes. But somehow, someway, Trump must be prosecuted for his disregard of humanity and the deaths of the hundreds of thousands who have died from Covid-19 due to his indifference. I doubt that stupidity would be an effective defense.

And those children ...

After a few hundred years, it's time to update a meme

The TV camera is mightier than the sword.

But, like the pen, that "mightier" can be used for good, evil, mindlessness, mental doodles, or meaningless nothings.

There are probably many other century-old memes that could also use updating. Do you have one or two?

Without voter suppression, the Republican Party couldn't exist

It wasn't always thus. But today's Republican Party has evolved into a horror that thrives on endless hypocrisy and boundless evil. Perhaps twenty to thirty percent of Americans are taken in by them. And these are people who can't grasp the reality that they're voting for people whose ideology is to fuck them, while transferring all wealth to the haves.

In any educated society, Republicans would be recognized as the sociopaths they are and would be ostracized. This is why they keep taking money from education.

The reality is that they are all Donald Trump. Most of them are just less obvious about it.
