This thought crossed my mind this week: the republicans final found someone to sell their party and our country to. I expect Putin to walk over here and dt will hand him our country without Putin/Russia having fired a single shot.

That is the, is the hellishness of how this all feels.

This immigration crisis isn't Trump's Katrina, it's Trump's Iraq war (or ONE of them, anyways). A ginned up crisis, ( they were preparing for this a year ago), followed by massive cash dumps to private contractors to do jobs the government should be doing, and no real plan what do the day after they "succeeded".

How will we get these kids back their parents? How will we govern Iraq? I don't know, but I'm sure we'll get good people! Everyone wants to get the White House on their CV, don't you know?

There is very little left to be said about what the goddamn Republicans are doing to the country other than "We told you this would happen, and it will continue at an accelerating rate on the downward arc toward American Fascism that began fifty years ago unless you elect some Democrats to temporarily arrest its descent."

The good news is we win when we all show up.

The bad news is that means literally all of us because they cheat.

Thank you again for the podcast, I still have limited access to the internet because the AT&T bill still hadn't been paid, if that tells you what kind of week this has been, and how much I really needed a mood lifting exercise such as you provide.
