Just in case you ever wondered what was going on while we've been fightin them there culture wars and ventin the social grievance spleen.
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.....
