This is How Democracy Ends

When even this nonsense is not enough, when they lose the electoral college anyway, the final plan is simply to appoint the president they want. They ran a dry run this past Jan. Come Jan of 2025, there will be less rioting and more certifying the losing candidate.

Mark my words. Let’s bet. I’ll be happy to be wrong.

Who Wants a Re-Fund?

Remember that defunding the police is not abandoning the city to chaos. It’s replacing armed thugs with mental health professionals and social programs that make the city more peaceful.

Every time some troll asks, “What will you do without police when your house gets robbed/your car gets stolen/you get mugged?” remind them that they themselves just operated off the assumption that the police cannot prevent crime, only react to it after-the-fact. Remind them that the alternatives to black tanks in the streets will actually aim to reduce the causes of criminal activity.

So the Problem Is….

…not so much that Pumpkin was president. It’s that he showed the Rethuglicans how completely disconnected from truth they could be and still get reported in corporate media as if they should be taken seriously.

He didn’t need to be president to do that, but it did make the process more efficient.

This movie is better than I even remembered.

…which has nothing to do with any of the above, I am sure.

Media

Watch the media coverage – see how slanted toward Israel it is.

Terrorism, according to American media, only counts when it’s performed by (brown OR Muslim) people.

Yesterday Israel bombed the building where the international media were based covering Gaza. Bombed it flat. They already had the editorial boards of the major outlets locked up, but it doesn’t pay to take chances. Don’t want any stray truth leaking out.

Vive la Difference

This is not even an exaggeration.

Let the Biden presidency put the final nail in the coffin of that disgusting trope that “there’s no difference between the parties.” There’s a shitload of difference.

One of the two parties is trying to kill you for not being a millionaire, and it’s the one that rhymes with “Zepublicans”.
