You know, my hair's not on fire right now But I am in a mood
Granted I'm white, and male, and not destitute (AND EMPLOYED!!) and I'll be dead before Miami goes under water (unfortunately... I'd kind of like to see the South Beach Sea World Exhibition) so I'm ceding much of my angst to the younger, more colorful and way more diverse demographic.
But I was listening to Mitt Romney who said (this is my memory.. I'm too lazy to look it up) 'hey, my liberal friends for decades have gotten used to having a liberal court and that is not written in the stars'. Another person I'd love to have a
beer glass of ice tea .. .oh, hell, some really nice water with and talk. I've missed that. I've missed having a conversation that does not include the idiocy that we currently call our Executive Branch.
I'm sorry that the police shot a woman whose boyfriend had a gun and maybe didn't use it wisely. It was a stupid warrant, poorly issued, poorly executed, and poorly documented while it was going on. But all the gun owners can kiss my ass. You point one of those things at someone and things happen and not always what you expected. This from someone who hung out with the Seals in Kuwait so I have some idea of where I speak.
I do not want a roll back of abortion rights and health care and gay marriage and human rights in general. But we are not helpless. We'll have a conservative court, and we WILL have a conservative court. But Justice Scalia was right. If you don't like the way things are in the Constitution, change the Constitution.
And, going back to the last paragraph, why the hell are we not abolishing the second amendment? Anything short of that is chicken shit.
Have you seen the young people in the streets? We are growing a phalanx of progressive lawyers and legislators and I'm sorry I won't be around to watch because there is going to be some reactive ass being kicked. There is a wave of pissed off post adolescents. Abby Hoffman was goofy and look at all he accomplished. Wavy Gravy was even goofier and he did more. These kids now are serious and studious and focused and know what a ballot box is and how to use it.
So, I'm kind of laying back now.
But also, by the way, QAnon can kiss my ass too.
