I miss not having to check news sources every few hours

This constant barrage of news, speculation, what-ifs and maybes is just exhausting. Even during the worst of the criminality of George the Lesser, I did not feel compelled to check multiple news sources at least a dozen times a day. The calm of the Obama years, even with the obstruction and dirty tricks of the repugs we were reassured that the man at the top, and those around him, had our backs and the interests of the majority of our citizens.
Here we are in the midst of the concerted efforts of seemingly every single person with and R after their name to reshape our beloved democracy into the wet dream of a wannabe dictator with delusions of epic grandeur.
I trust that our elected Democrats are doing everything possible to get our country back, and to get right with the world.

Sure was counting on Mueller, big mistake

Two years, thinking all the unbelievable lawlessness we see daily would finally come up for consequences, and nothing.
Think I am fresh out of hope that AG or anyone else on a federal level will do anything but congratulate each other for their win.
Yeah, maybe somewhere in New York wrongs will be righted.
No idea how to deal with the gloating to come.

Anyone see an end to this madness?

Do you think Mueller will end this "presidency", or is 2020 our only hope?
Every single day brings fresh outrage and disgusting behavior. Every day more people are made to suffer real harm to their well being, and our planet is being destroyed. And still, every damn repug seems to support, some more enthusiastically than others, this orange slime that has taken over our country.
I have great hope for 2020, but would sure like this nightmare to end before then.

We have much to be hopeful about in 2020 election

But we have to get there first. This nightmare we are living right now overwhelms my vision of any of the outstanding Dems who are planning to step up for the nomination.
When 2016 happened, I was hopeful that there would be some republicans who would choose country over a perverted flim-flam man. And here we are 2 years later, in the midst of a real catastrophe for millions of our fellow americans, and still, at best we get token lip service from a few timid repugs. We know many of them, McConnell chief among them, have long held the dream of greatly reducing government and ending all "social welfare" programs.
I have no idea how this is going to play out, and am so very grateful to have the strength and wisdom of Pelosi leading our House.
