Response to babylonsister (Original post)

25. With the permeating infection of soulless thugs in the Republican Congress and

Statewide gerrymandering, billionaire bros and co., etc., yeah , frighteningly, Robinson has a very valid point. And never forget, Russia.

When men without morals, men without decency, men without an ounce of human compassion and integrity have obscene money and power, the outlook can be devastating.

Before these men drenched and soaked bone-deep in treachery die out (so far they cannot buy immortality) and become fodder for worms, a whole helluva lot of suffering and fighting will happen. They are legally making it much easier to pass their infected brains, money and agendas on to younger generations of men before they quit breathing and rot away.

Our war against them is going to be ...well I can’t even think of the words...before humanity triumphs, or at least maims them enough to hold them down under the rocks they should live under.

We need more fierce leaders with the same defiant, steely determination of the scores of millions of everyday “resisters”, but with more immediate power. Backbone, loyalty....fucking support for processes we still have in place to get to the truth and strengthen our “decency” core to shield us from multitudes of diversions.

Many of those diversions are serious stand alone issues and essential battles with massive generation and gender impact (#MeToo). Some diversions involve defending the literal earth we walk on and air we breathe. Some threaten our children and the strong health we need to fight their battles as well as our own.

And then there is the purposeful enabling of The Stupid to contend with daily.

Nothing about this insidious war is going to be in the least bit easy. Screw ups will be exploited brutally.

Sadly, this week was not a notch in the win column for our “Force”. That really sucked. It was in the same life-disbelief-wtf column as election night though further down the hideous list.

It is nightmarish to have to wait while things outside of our daily control are going down behind the scenes. It is enough to give us all literal heart attacks realizing that these findings just may not be enough. Dumbfounding, but nothing so far about the abject indecency and moronic ignorance of the Cretin has made enough of a difference.

Yet.
Yet.
Herculean, yup.
Goddess strength, oh, hell, yeah.
But it hasn’t stopped us, yet.
The eventual success will be ten times as satisfying as the agony is debilitating.

RESIST REPLENISH REVOLT
