Jim is a decent man but I would not place too much stock in his party. For me, at least, if you are not a socialist you do not get my support. Looks like Dorothy Day was right in describing the USA as a nation whose heart is as cold as its pavements.

I’m 62 yrs old, worked for at least 45 yrs, partially disabled, even labeled as so by gov’t doctors over 35 yrs ago, I get $847 ssdi and a whopping $98 mthly food benefits!
How can I buy all those high end foods and live high off the gov’t. on that much??

“The essential American soul is hard, isolate, stoic, and a killer.” is DH Lawrence reflecting on JF Cooper’s representation of the people of the US in the century or two before it. I think the characterization is of all Anglos. It’s became even more frightening since then. (You can count in the majority of the Canadians if you wish.)

GOP = Greedy Oppressive Parasites - just living up to their typical feral nature.

A two party kleptocracy is only democracy to a small child.
