Marjorie Greene refuses to wear a mask, Ted Cruz fucks off for a holidays to Mexico abandoning his responsibility, and of course there's dippity doo don donny the idiot who was elected as their leader. I wouldn't give a fiddelly arse **** except we share such a long border with these idiots. I don't want to die of Covid. Do you?

I don't think the US is the problem.  Right-wing populism is on the rise throughout the world.  From Brexit and Brazil to India and Hungary. 

The 21st century is going to be an interesting era with regards to both acceptance of science and multi-culturalism.

The GOP is a disease of stupidity and has been for decades.

I have a friend who lives in Kentucky and he said they're getting ready to get vaccinated and half of his co-workers have decided not to get vaccinated.  People like this could be the reason new variants pop up that could possibly turn COVID into something annual like the flu if we don't get ahead of it.

I agree with much of  what you say. I used to travel a lot around the world for work. I guess it just scares me a bit to hear that therre are groups that want to reinstate Trumpty dyumpty March 4th because os some **** up political outfit they have down there.  Let's hope they are not stupid enough to do that.

Canadian politicians, mostly right-wingers from what Iíve seen, are also going on vacation during a world-wide pandemic.

Too bad Donny Trump wasn't in Boulder CO. today. Along with a bunch of other dumb ass yankees who support the idea of everybody having the rite to carry a gun. Especially an AR-15. If they simply shot the **** out of each other the world would be a safer place. Let's see, second mass shooting in a week in the US? Carry on you stupid assholes, I'm busy building a wall to keep you out.

Wanna bet that Americans donít have any sort of campaign not to mention the shooterís name?  I think a lot of Americans will want people to be reminded of a Muslim sounding name.

Certainly the NRA idiots will go down that road. They'll continue to blame it on the name of the man as they head down to their local gun store to buy another AR-15 as they continue to support that stupid 2nd amendment. . The flag tenders must be getting a bit tired running those flags up and down the pole so often. I'd say just leave the fuckin' flags down as there will likely be yet another mass shooter stepping out after a visit to the local gun store soon.

I have been growing disillusioned about American politics for quite some time. I went from being a staunch Republican, to a RINO, to unaffiliated, to Democrat, and now I just want to wash my hands of the whole matter. Both parties are money-driven and the so called Party of the People of which I am a registered voter now doesn't really represent the people any more effectively than the GOP.

What to do, what to do....? Become unaffiliated again? Maryland is nearly last in the presidential primaries so what's party membership matter anymore. Change back to Republican and be a RINO? That would help me in Carroll County elections and elections for state delegate/state senator so I could vote in those primaries, but I'm just not "feeling it" anymore (that is, I stayed away from the GOP for a reason).

The Republicans, who are too far to the right, disgust me. The Democrats, who are too far to the left, scare me. Shall I secede and declare my house a sovereign republic, like Peter Griffin did on Family Guy? (very early episode...) Or just turn my eyes away from all political news and information, and embrace the rather inaccurate proverb "ignorance is bliss"?

*&#$%!

Thoughts?

The only left aspect of the Dems is the slight nod to the woke movement.

As if things weren't bad enough for the US under Trump, now they have Marjorie Taylor Green to be embarrased about. She now compares democrats to Nazis. What a sleezy stupid **** **** she demonstrates. Maybe she should just shut TFU and swing around a brass pole in a sleezy bar, which is where she should be taken "seriously". Unfortunately there seem to be enough sleezy Americans who will take her seriously. now I'm stepping back to the border to continue building my wall.

This is what they want politics to be: pro wrestling.

Luckily they have hundreds of thousands dead to remind them that government exists to solve problems.

MH: I think it's more than a slight nod.

Maybe, but do you think we're going to get reparations, restored affirmative action, or any real left programs from this?
