So, I binge watched the 1st 2 seasons of The Handmaids Tale

They didn’t see it happening at first EITHER.
They saw their rights being taken away.
But, they waited too long to stop it.
Terrifying show.
Terrifying times we live in now too.

There is no way to be CIVIL with the uncivil.
There is no way to give good to the EVIL and expect them to change.
There is no way to defeat greedy powerful entitled narcissistic people with no empathy by trying to reason with them. Because you can’t reason with the UNREASONABLE.

Hopefully, that doesn’t mean violence or full scale civil war.
But, damned if I will allow the women of my country to become PROPERTY.
Damned if I will allow my country to become a corporate Christian Taliban.
Will you?

Pence speaks out on eliminating Roe and what it will lead to.

“Mother and I truly believe that God is now steering our country back in a righteous direction under the greatest most pious leader of all time. Not only will Roe be overturned. We will then move for a federal ban on all abortions. We will then move for a national directory that will pair up all 18year old girls and boys on their 18th birthday. They must be virgins (all others will be stoned or burned at the stake).
They will be taught to be missionaries and have relations only in the missionary position, fully clothed, with only small holes cut out for the purpose of fulfilling marital duties to bring forth a blessed event of holy childhood bearing.
Those white Christian families who are, unfortunately, barren will be provided with gender traitors to serve as egg or sperm substitutes. Blessed Day!”

We can make enough stupid, stupid enough.

When you hear a politician say “the American people are too smart for that”, realize they are lying.

America has been PURPOSEFULLY dumbed down so that we will accept someone like Trump.
The corporate masters and one percent have played the country like a Stradivarius.
They know to give the lower educated and under informed a good enemy.
It’s been Jews, it’s been gays, blacks, browns, Mexicans, Muslims, you name it.

But, never white Christians.
The corporate overlords know that these people love a top down Godlike authoritarian leader because it resembles their religion and no thinking or studying issues is necessary.
Dear God like leader will take care of everything.
They wrap everything in the flag and God.

But, now, the corporate overlords bill will come due with the uneducated masses who like to think of themselves as morally superior because they believe in forced births.
They really do want that pound of flesh, so to speak.
And, they won’t just be happy with a few states outlawing abortion.
They will now insist on a federal ban.

We are entering a whole new world.
How much will women in this country fight back.
And, I mean, white women.
We know that black and brown women don’t matter to the overlords.
Suburban white women who believe in choice will let us know in November.
They hold the key to everything that most of us still love about America.

If Roe is overturned, what will be the punishment for abortion?

First degree premeditated murder by both the Mother and the Doctor?
So, will they be executed or given life in prison?
If a fetus is declared a person, that punishment would naturally follow, right?

Chew on that, you “pro life” fuckwads.

Here's our valid argument for a SCOTUS nomination freeze.

The Senate is an equal branch of govt to the presidency.
The current 51-49 split means that, in only 4 months, control could change.
Just as McConnell argued in 2016 not to vette candidates in an election year, the same is true now.
Let the voters decide.

Dems should say this and only this.... over and over and over.......

It's not enough for prominent REPUBS to take a leave of absence.

It’s nice for Scarborough, Will, Wallace, and Schmidt to say they are leaving the current Republican Party because of their disdain for Trump.
But, that’s not enough.
The only thing that can possibly stop Trump and the march toward Totalitarianism is the current Democratic Party.
These people, if really serious about stopping Trump, should vow to do everything in their power to elect Democrats in November.
Otherwise, it’s all just a lot of noise and bluster.
Will has said the current GOP “deserves” to lose in November.
But, he has stopped short of saying he will help to make that happen
That is what is needed.
All sane hands on deck.
The GOP holds all of the National and most state halls of power.
They will purge, obstruct, and gerrymander (where still legal) to limit Dem voting.
Some feel they can and have even changed results where machines have no paper trails and the source codes may have been compromised.
That being said, all sane minded people in this country, no matter how they have voted or infrequently voted or never voted, must register and get as many people voting and working in Dem campaigns before November.
The time is now to come to the aid of your country.
It is under attack from within.

It may be time to split into the Real America and Gilead

Each state can vote which one they want to join.

Gilead will have only white nationalist Christian heterosexual males and the Stepford women who serve them.

The Real America will have everyone else.

Is there a national tipping point? Do you have one?

What would it take for the left and center to rise up and start disrupting the country?
Boycotts, blockades, sit-ins, daily marches on DC and state capitals.

Is it the firing of Mueller or Rosenstein?
Is it the permanent kidnapping or some reported deaths of children taken from parents?

What will make enough truly be enough?

Will ripping away children replace shooting on Fifth Avenue?

We all know that Trump said during the campaign that he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and not lose any supporters. We laughed and scoffed then. No longer. He was right.

So, what about tearing thousands of children and toddlers away from their mothers?
Is THIS the bridge too far for some of his supporters?

It's almost as if Trump does and says crazy things just for the reaction

We’ve all known people, in my case a brother, who like to just see what they can get by with.
It’s like a game for them.
They think that it’s fun and a challenge to try different outrageous behaviors just to evoke reactions.
Trump is one of those.
He loves chaos.
It provides him with entertainment, I think.
Malignant Narcissistic Sociopaths are that way.
