    • The Logic Of Bootlickers Is The Logic Of Too Many Americans
      This is sweet and lovely in the purity of its boot-licking authoritarianism: Repeat after me: I am not smarter than Joe Biden. I am not smarter than Kamala Harris. I am not smarter than Nancy Pelosi. I am not smarter than James Carville. But if I l stand back and watch and learn, I will […]

If this is government by BDSM, none of US are going to be the sub.

This call between Trump and the governors is wrong on so many levels:

I’m not into this kink. I don’t want to be dominated. But if that’s the game we’re playing, citizens of the United States should be the doms. And Trump works for us for a few more months anyway. In other words, he’s the sub and he should be wearing a collar.

It’s unlikely we the people are going to win with force against a paramilitary police force. A lot of people have come to this conclusion too late. Did everyone just forget about the patriot act? We are going to need some clever alternate strategies to make sure we dominate them. Think it through people. Don’t put yourselves in danger. That’s the kind of domination that Trump wants. Macguyver it.

Do you hear the people sing?

Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again

When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes

Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
Beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see?
Then join in the fight
That will give you the right to be free

Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again

When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes
