O.k, O.k., we got unisex bathrooms and gay weddins and that's a victory, I guess.

One righteous war and one illegal war of aggression that was funded off the books by a republican administration and a republican congress?

I thought the military pursuit of bin Laden in Afghanistan to be only slightly less foolish than the invasion of Iraq.

I remember in the 2016 presidential election how a lot of criticizing of Senator Sanders was framed by many as him promising 'unicorns and rainbows'. Even by his primary opponent.
28 trillion can buy a effin tom of rainbows. For me, this is a reference point of how far right and facist our country has become. Yes, we always have been an oligarch but not as lethal a one.
28 trillion the war department can't account for and no one is held accountable. Flynt doesn't have clean water.....
