Thanksgiving Eve Author: BobRDate:2019-11-27 13:00:00
So tomorrow is Turkey Day, a day when we are supposed to think about all the things we're thankful for. Ever since Nov 2016, those moments have been few and far between. It seemed that tRump's claim he could shoot someone on 5th Ave in NYC and get away with it was bearing true. Evangelicals are treating him like the second coming of Jesus. Backwoods rednecks are believing he's just like one of them (in reality - it's only the white supremacy part).
In fact - it's that white race Uber Alles aspect of tRump that appears to be the main attraction for his cult supporters. Well - that, and being an obnoxious asshole to "own the libs".
It's pretty obvious that the only reason the Republicans in Congress aren't flushing him like the turd he is, is because either he's got something on them, or they see him as a useful idiot that they can manipulate to do their bidding. That includes Lindsey Graham (the former) and Moscow Mitch (the latter).
With the recent revelations that Rep. Nunes was working with Ghouliani's Goons, it's clear that the entire party is bought and paid for by Russia, via the NRA and the previous Ukraine leadership. Their only motivation is maintaining power, and it's apparent they'll do anything to hold on - regardless of ethics or legality.
That's why this year I am thankful for Rep. Schiff and the rest of the Democrats who finally spined-up and are holding tRump's feet to the fire. I am thankful for the career diplomats who have put their patriotism over party. I am thankful for those who work for our government and try to do the best job they can, regardless of who is in the White House. I am thankful for those who still believe (and live/work by) the notion that we are a country of laws - not a country of men.
It's been a bright spot in a dismal couple of years. I hope it keeps getting brighter.
