4. . . . and how the GOP propaganda machine
Wed Nov 22, 2023, 02:49 PM
Nov 2023

. . . with tons of help, over many years from MSM, turned the genial, washed-out, windbag, grade-B actor into an heroic National Monument, whilst simultaneously infesting and dismantling our government and crime-ing out the wazoo.

All the voting, all the calls and letters to senators, congress-critters, newspapers, all the demonstrations, all made little or no difference in the direction of our Ship of State.

Missiles to Iran, PATRIOT Act, Citizens United, Palin, Drumpf, hollowing out of public education, and an host of other dirty tricks and FY's to the People, thanks to that sacred bond of GOPers, billionaires, and our stenographic, propagandic mass media.

Things are a mess and not likely to be fixed before the planet is torched unless??? unless what??? Wish I knew.
