I am in a constant struggle with all the electronic crap and "upgrades" that do nothing to improve

my life. Having to buy new printers, phones, hard drives, cloud crap, "life-lock" identity theft protection, phone, internet cable "plans" and contracts? (WTF), passwords in unlimited quantity, spam on phone and internet (despite "no call" registration), etc., etc. It is accelerating and in concert with the other, not insignificant daily issues (mass shootings, rising domestic terrorism, ongoing systemic racism, voter suppression, militarization of police (thanks W for starting that with Iraq war surplus to PD's and returning vets trained to kill becoming cops; sorry personal disdain for the Bush/ Cheney cabal).
NONE of this is improving the quality of our existence. We have a fractured society that is now subject to the propaganda/ misinformation reaching the heavily armed and dis-enfranchised by virtue of the multi media platforms. We can't even agree to wear masks in the face of a global pandemic, let alone agree on the basics like spending on infrastructure, education and the environment. Pitiful. I want my black, 8 pound indestructible rotary phone back (well maybe a "princess" touchtone)..... All done for now.

Looks like GOP will rally around their new God; the AR-15.

How many other agency heads and elected officials did he do this to? I'd say Don the Con, crime boss did it DAILY if not every waking moment.

Thinking about systemic rascism, I realize it has always been who we are. Slaves, Irish, Chinese,

Poles, Italians, French, Jews, Hispanics. Let me re-phrase in the words I heard growing up. Niggers, Micks/Drunks, Slanty eyes/ Gooks, Pollacks, Dagos/Wops, Frogs, Kikes, Spics. And there are many more. Insert religious terms. Perhaps the worst was what we did to indigenous peoples, both in terms of genocide, forced movement, land confiscation, "treaty" abuses and mocking with so many derogatory names. It all perpetuates today.

Drumpf has ripped off the mask of racism and the worst is yet to come. I am ashamed of our history and fear for our future. We are who we have always been, only now heavily armed and brainwashed into thinking that "whites" are the only victims, entitled to be superior, and can now express their victimhood violently. Take a look at where you came from, "whites." Don't think it goes that deep.

I guess we all need to have guns in the background of our homes for all Zoom occasions.

Seems many repukes now consider this normal and somehow ego-enhancing, appealing to the millions of seditionists. I hope Garland does a full sweep after confirmation. We got a problem, and not just Houston.

Pence & McCarthy need to be called as witnesses. Unless this can be accomplished, no accountability

Rushbo at his worst today. Schumer telling Rachel that "climate" is his number one issue sent him

over the edge. Dems will control what you drive (electric cars), what you eat (no meat allowed), what job you have (? no Keystone pipeline?) and on and on. Thirty-five years of this totally fabricated fear-mongering, divisiveness and just plain bullshit has left us where we are. Totally fractured over lies and propaganda. It's non-stop and the hate silo has lots of new "personalities" who copied his model. Faux News made it into a network. Banned in parts of Europe as it is not legitimate news, but this crap dominates the airwaves in U.S. Look no further as to how we got here. Cult 45 is the culmination and they are far from done. We are at war, and they brought it. Let us hope sanity prevails.

Yesterday's events have left me feeling physically (and mentally) sick. Anyone else?

45 got the full 2020 experience. Got covid, lost his job and is being evicted. Thankfully.
