Never again ask "How did Germans let it hapen?"

We know now, because we're on the same horrible path.

The only ones who can (lawfully) stop it right now are the Republicans.

Yet, the Republican Party has chosen to nothing to stop the madness.

So are the rest of us helpless?

Seems so.

And if you think these thoughts are extreme/insane/out of line, how long will you wait to confirm that my beliefs are out of line? And when is "too late," "too late?"

One more thought: Who among us will, in some future day, be saying, "I didn't know." or, "I was only following orders."

Sorry people. This is how it begins.

Like dog shit on your shoe

You wipe. You scrape. You might even try to wash it off.

But, no matter what you do, the smell always seems to be there.

That's the way it's going to be with Trump.

Long after he goes away, the stench will remain with us.

Why are Republicans always such dicks?

Virtually every elected Republican seems to lack sympathy, empathy, decency, and just plain humanity.

What's wrong with these people?

They're putting together a health care plan to fuck millions.

They want only vanilla, "Christian," Republicans to have the right to vote.

Their denial of global warming screws their own progeny.

They don't care about poverty and homelessness in America.

They don't care if children are not educated and/or hungry.

They consistently play to racism, bigotry and homophobia.

They really don't give a rat's ass about the unemployed.

They've closed ranks behind an unbalanced president.

Their vision of the future doesn't extend beyond the next election.

They've raised hypocrisy to an art form.

They've turned their backs on fairness and a level playing field.

Their attitude seems to be: "I'm okay. Fuck everyone else."

What's wrong with these people?

The Civil War never ended

The media recently focused on Trump's spewing out his ignorance about the Civil War, his Andrew Jackson crap, etc.

But one issue that the media never focuses on is that the Civil War never really ended.

The main issue of the Civil War was states rights vs federalism. After all, states rights was an argument that states, in which it was okay to own slaves, could continue to hold slaves.

The North "won," sorta. The cannons stopped, but institutionalized racism continues to oppress America's black population till this very day. Call it what you will. But to me, it's nothing more but slavery "lite."

(Don't believe it? Do a count of how many white cops have been exonerated of murdering black human beings. Do a count of the number of blacks incarcerated in prison, for insanely long sentences, for possessing an ounce of weed.)

And the Republican Party, the party of today's South, and of most of the rest of rural America, are the major protectors and enforcers of institutional slavery.

Like it or not, it's the reason they keep winning elections and are today in charge of all branches of government.

I believe that the majority of Americans are not racists. And I also believe that those who are have found tactics that include gerrymandering, phony voter ID schemes, fixed voting machines, and other methods that we are not even aware of to use sleazy, gangster-like schemes to hold onto power.

So if the Civil War was about doing away with slavery, the Union lost. And so did every black human being in America.

Let me say it once again. The Civil War never ended.

Andrea Mitchell: “Hurray Donald: Screw Hillary”

Mitchell thinks that Trump is tough on terrorism and that Hillary Isn’t.

“This really does put Hillary Clinton on the spot,” the MSNBC host opined. “She has campaigned on her resume, on her advantages having been part of the administrations — secretary of state, a senator on Armed Services [committee] — yet, Donald Trump is still communicating toughness in a way that she hasn’t been able to.”


Let me say this as politely as I can. Fuck Andrea Mitchell and her opinions.

Donald Trump will spend the rest of his life as a punchline

And there will be nothing that he, his money, his henchmen, or anyone else can do about it.

He will spend his twilight years taking names and planning revenge. But he will live out the rest of his life as a bitter, hate filled, hollow old man, shouting lies that will echo off the walls of his empty castles.

Trump might not make it to election day

One need not be a psychiatrist to see that there's something radically wrong with Trump. No one can control what he decides to say or do and he's obviously surrounded by people who tell him how great he is.

Given his behavior to date, he may well do something so openly demented before election day that even the GOP leadership will be forced to disown him. I have no idea what that "something" might be, but he seems capable of anything.

Imagine him on a debate stage with Hillary. Given his temperment, I hope that the Secret Service watches him as closely as they watch those around him.

Dear Bernie supporters. Please. Stop!

We are facing a real danger to this country. And for those of you who don't grasp that danger, google, ask your great grandparents, or go read something about Germany in 1933.

Right now, we are in a greater danger than most people are willing to acknowledge or recognize. Trump is the biggest danger to this country that we've seen since WWII, (or Richard Nixon, or the "America First" hateful American pricks who tried to keep us from fighting Germany).

I know what it's like to fall in love with a candidate. As a matter of fact, look at those who have fallen in love with Trump as an example. And, no. Bernie is not Trump. He's a man that I would love to see in the White House.

But the time has come to choose a candidate. Hillary or Trump. The choice is yours.

And if you really don't see the difference between the two, I pity you. And I also pity what this country would be if we lived under a Trump Reich.

And for those of you who spit on this post for one reason or another because Bernie won't be prez, don't complain about what you will have to live with. You will have made it possible.

America has crossed the insanity line and

is now in un-chartered territory.

The Republican nominee to be, Trump, is more than a scam artist and a buffoon. He's a psychopathic narcissist, and an extremely ignorant man who knows nothing of foreign policy, should never be anywhere near the nuclear codes, and who might appoint some modern-day Caligula to the Supreme Court.

But the Archie Bunkers out there are buying his every word, even though he contradicts his own words seconds after they come out of his mouth. His voters are gobbling up his crap and intentionally ignoring the danger he presents. Or perhaps they are too ignorant to recognize that danger. And that's a really scary scenario.

Meanwhile, the Democratic Party is in an ugly war with itself over a left-wing liberal and a slightly-to-the-right centrist. Were the party unified, either candidate could easily defeat the nut with the orange on top, and perhaps help win back the Senate and the house.

If someone wrote a book with this as the plot, it would be turned down by every editor in the publishing business as too far out there.

Yet, here we are, facing this scenario, and it seems that almost half the voters in this country are backing the deranged snake-oil peddler.

We now know the definition of insanity and we've crashed through it into a new world. Emotions have crushed reason, anger and hatred have replaced measured thought. No matter who wins, this ugliness isn't going away anytime soon.

So prepare yourselves for a dark, perhaps violent era. The path toward such an era has been laid. And no matter who becomes president, reconciliation doesn't seem to be at hand.

One request: I may be wasting my time, but I would ask that posts that belong on GD-P don't show up here. Let's see if we can get just a bit of sanity going here to start healing Democratic Underground. After all, if not here, where? If not now, when?

I’m beyond pissed. Here’s why:

A snake oil salesman, Trump, has an actual chance at being nominated and elected president.

The alternative to him is an immense-sized turd named Cruz, who is hated by the entire Republican Party.

There may be enough ignorant/know-nothing/bigots to elect one of these two. (Don’t ever again wonder how genocidal maniacs come to power.)

The entire media is busy denying they had anything to do with this grotesque situation.

Many terrified Republicans are falling in line behind Trump “just in case he wins.”

If Trump or Cruz becomes president, make sure your passport is up to date. (Not that anyplace on this planet would be safe from their insanity.)

But here’s what really pisses me off: We Democrats are busy fighting a Bernie/Hillary war. It seems that we are too busy to fight a clear and present danger to our country, (and possibly the survival of this planet).

And this is the one thing that pisses me off than anything else: The incredible stupidity of far too many American voters. I’d really like to say, “Fuck them." They deserve what they get. The problem is that all the rest of us will get fucked just as badly.

I wish I could suggest some kind of solution. And I guess we’ll have to wait until the election in November to see what happens.

But no matter what happens, the Trump/Cruz voters aren’t going away. And their toxic hatred will poison American politics for decades to come.
