Let’s just dispense with the chit chat, shall we? The next four years are going to be devastating to many Americans, especially Americans who have not yet retired. So to those of you who have retired and will watch most of this as somewhat passive observers, those of us who are still years away would like to say, “Fuck you very much”.
If we’re lucky, the Republicans will do the shock and awe treatment and the majority of us, including the casual Trump voter, will vote the bastards out of office in 2018.
To recap, Republicans are in charge of every branch of government. They control the Executive Branch with Trump, the Supreme Court and Congress. Do not believe the tripe that Congress can not pass anything without Democrats helping. This is a lie. Procedurally, both the Senate and the House have enough votes to render Democrats non-players even if the numbers by party are close to parity in the Senate. It’s time for everyone to read up on how motions can disarm your opponents.
So, with that being said, here is Masha Gessen, journalist, who was born and worked in Russia. This is what we have to look forward to. She is not exaggerating.
Have a nice day. It might be the last one until Election Day 2018.
