      Yes, unfortunately it looks like even darker times are in sight. Unable to watch the latest hearings or coverage because it was so disgusting. And even more so because Doug Collins is my Representative. (Yes that piece of yellow cowardly screaming shit) he won’t even stay in his office when Indivisible Lumpkin has held protests. He is truly a huge dick.

          Many of us found it hard to fight off despair in Nov. 2016. And it’s not only children feeling the effects of Trump’s autocracy but all of us who aren’t wealthy.

    A few of the tweets were not embedding properly, so I fixed them. Have a good day.

      The leaders of the Republican party in the Senate have said that the impeachment of Donald Trump is a sham, and therefore they will not respect the process mandated by the Constitution. And they are saying this not because they claim there is no merit to the charges that the House is voting out against Donald Trump, but because they have decided to give Trump impunity to act outside the law without consequence. This is not hypothesis or hyperbole: this is what they are saying, clearly, openly, without ambiguity.

      This is also the essence of authoritarianism. It’s not the threat of authoritarianism: it’s the thing itself, now, here, not in Germany in 1933, or Italy in 1922, or whatever other parallel is too hysterical and alarmist to cite, given that it goes without saying that America is so very exceptional that it can’t happen here, because of the Wisdom of the Framers, or because we’re God’s very special extra-favorite country, or because we just can’t bear it so please stop talking that way.

      It can happen here. It’s happening now.
