This IS Who We Are

Rob Rogers

They say the first step in solving the problem is recognizing that you have a problem. It sounds way easier than it is. It has taken the vast majority of this country five years. But maybe we’re there now.

I found this article encouraging. It’s about the real “deep state” (as opposed to the Pumpkin fantasy).

You attacked America. Maybe you think it was justified — as a response to a stolen election, or a cabal of child-trafficking pedophiles, or whatever — but it was still a violent attack on the United States. No matter how you describe it, that’s how the real Deep State is going to treat it.

The impact of that will make everything else feel like a LARP.

Rock Bottom

So I was an ass and wrote this two days ago

I never imagined how bad it would actually be.

For four years, every time the Pumpkin hit another new low, I would think, This must be it. It cannot go lower. The country has to bounce off this floor now. This time. At last. Every time, I have been wrong.

I now think, there is no bottom. In case of a bottom, some red-hatted MAGAt will grab a shovel and get to work.

So You Thought You Might Like to Go to the Show

This was on the randomly generated list of songs to post on Waltz Wednesdays. Now, it’s in triple meter alright, but I don’t think I would waltz to it.


Consider the massive plans the radical right has for rioting in Washington, DC today. They will try and disrupt the process of Pumpkin being removed from office by a fully certified election. In that context, this piece makes perfect sense.

Here’s hoping the only thing that mob accomplishes is infecting one another with COVID-19.


Pumpkin’s version of the Brown Shirts, the Proud Boys, are harassing and assaulting people in Washington DC.

Sure hope that guy is not a cop. Oh, wait…

There were stabbings at a rally convened to support Pumpkin’s quest to overturn an election, and videos are circulating showing people in right-wing tee shirts harassing passers-by for any or no reason. Pumpkin encourages this violence.

My “favorite” t-shirt from this lovely group of “humans” is this one:

In case you’re wondering, that stands for “Six million wasn’t enough.” I hope my Pumpkin-fan brother reads this.

Folk Theories

People have some interesting ideas about how this all works.

Click through to see the magic!

Magical thinking has also told these same morons that if they only traveled for The Holidays (magic!) and only saw Family and Close Friends (more magic! Just consult The Hallmark Channel!), they would be immune somehow.

I will be pleasantly surprised if we don’t have ten million (!!!) new cases by Groundhog Day. I would mind this much less if people behaving this way only killed one another, and not bystanders with more cognitive abilities.

Alas, idiots with no scientific education nor critical thinking skills is what the right-wing authoritarians started out trying to make of Americans beginning in 1981, the start of the first fascist-leaning Rethuglican administration. Their success must warm whatever there is of Putin’s heart.
