Gertrude and I wish you a serene and happy Caturday
While we are getting sick faster than anywhere else in the world? Other than holding daily
Behold, and weep:
And… designed as it was to preserve chattel slavery, the Electoral College will probably once again combine with Russian fuckery to finish us off by 2024.
I mean, I’ll vote (for Bernie!) in the NY Primary if they even let us. But really, once they realized that letting everyone vote might mean the elites didn’t just get to pick their favorites, they started f*ing with it. See: 2016.
Never be deceived that the rich will allow you to vote away their wealth.Lucy Parsons
We did our census form this week.
The census has been subject to a lot of shenanigans over the course of our history, but nothing compares to the feats of gerrymandering that this Rethuglican government will layer onto it if they keep control after this year. Voting will be more important than ever. Another cycle with the Senate under Moscow Mitch and a Pumpkin in the White House will mean courts that shred our rights for decades.
Right now it looks like Biden, not Bernie, will be the Dem nominee. Biden has his issues but… here’s what sitting this out will accomplish: a Federal court system packed with nutjobs that make Clarence Thomas look like Louis Brandeis.
A university in Norway advised its students abroad to return home ASAP, especially if they were in “a country with poorly developed health services and infrastructure” such as… the USA.
And four Rethuglican Senators, it turns out, sold off most of their stocks while still “assuring” the public we would have no trouble with COVID-19. A day or three before news broke that, yes, yes, we would. And then the Dow tanked. The senators had already learned how bad this would be in classified briefings. Lying to the public of course comes naturally to these scum. One of them even used the cash freed up by the sale of other stocks to buy into teleworking technology companies. Let that sink in for a bit.
A few weeks ago, I would never have thought of the death penalty for insider trading, or for political ethics violations. Suddenly, it seems really reasonable.
