Fascist, indeed (as per that old maxim about fascism coming to American wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross?). But this is also an outcome of people exploiting the propensity of modern protestant Evangelicals to build their own subcultural structures that mirror general institutions found in mainstream culture.

Exclusionary, expensive, and corrupt as it surely will become once the DeVoses et al get their blood-funnels shoved up in there as with charter schools…? With arbitrary payouts governed by religious whim, a new sort of religious tax dodge that can enact more new Jim Crow? It seems super-shady to me, but against private insurance I suppose it’s found a niche.

Do you know that as an absolutely-certain fact?

'Cause if you do, I need to know lottery numbers, or where all the money is hidden in my house, something like that. And I’d share, too - I ain’t no Repugnantcan.

It’s a link? I see the Russian and American power structures the same—unfeeling power structures by and for the rich. This isn’t team sports. I know you are facing real life challenges. I’m not trying to take away from that.

I gotcha, but it’s just…well, I see so many people saying “THIS is what’s going to happen” and “2020 is destined to be worse than 2019” and I just don’t get how people are so sure that the POTUS isn’t/is gonna be tried.

i understand probabilities, however, believe it or not.

^ that is what i meant. sorry, shoulda been more specific.

see, 'cause the world could be blown up before ANYthing else could happen…couldn’t it? though it’s not very probable, is it?

oh don’t mind the rantings of a crazy person, lol.

Personally, I predict that Rump won’t make it too far into this year if he keeps making Thuglicans worried about his election chances.

We’re all crazy people.

It’s reality TV turned into real reality. We’re supposed to act like audience members. Feel free to join those of us in the back row who aren’t in the shot when the camera pans across the audience.

Do you mean “actual”?

PS: I don’t watch television any more, much less so-called “reality” shows.

I’ve argued that, in many respects, the presidency of Donald Trump is more “normal” than some people would like to admit.
