It seems to me

that they (SCOTUS) are simply following the republican playbook dating back at least to karl rove and methodically dismantling every thing liberal or good or anti-racist or that strives for equality in our country.

We're living in 1984. that's how it feels to me. We're living the handmaid's tale. We're living devolution and being tested to succumb to permanent republican rule, where all the wealth flows upward and the shit rolls downhill, where the vast majority of us will be attempting to live decent lives.

they censured him for telling the truth.


i have high blood pressure and have been dealing with some health crap, and didn't go to check it out until now. i did watch his amazing, historical comments on the House Floor yesterday, but it didn't tell me what their "why" was. so i googled this morning and the reason is he told the truth about their cult leader.

it's 2023 but feels much more like 1984. I'm so pissed I want to scream. So fucking mad I think I'm going to cry. where and how does this end.

This should be shared far and wide.

watching Lawrence and Maddow discuss

and it just made this little bitterness bubble up: if Nixon had been prosecuted, trump would never have happened. if reagan had. if bush had. but they all skated. and of course he skated for almost 80 years of his life.

i am happy tonight. but i cannot forget that it didn't have to be this way.

hope it's not a dupe because I have seen the topic but not the full video.
