I have no doubt, that with all the ‘allowing’ being allowed so far, without any real protests or revolts, the Trump administration will ‘win’ again, and we will be even into a deeper fascist state of reality than we are now. - Just keep ‘allowing’ my fellow citizens - Do not protest or revolt - And do not blame anyone else for what America becomes - You will deserve what comes if you keep allowing them. . . Seriously, it can’t get more serious than it is now.

Looks like the price has just gone up to remove this SOB from office.

I find myself seeing the multiple variations of the trump rhetoric not as projected condition descriptives, but as stated strategies, eg: invisible enemy; nasty; even his body language describes what he and the kleptocrats keep doing to society. Somebody remind them that their beloved pharmaceutical corporations make viagra. They don’t need to keep poisoning society with their collective failed junk.

We have to start generating our own twist on “helicopter money”. Local relations are always capable of generating REAL oikos/economy. It looks entirely different from the version from the lord high inquisitors. Just be prepared for the fanatics that kowtow to the capitol, I mean capital evangelicals in the funny hats (the invisible ones)

Thinking along similar lines…Removing these folks, to my mind at any rate, affords us the space/time to create this alternative world right in the Belly of the Beast which is becoming deadlier with each passing day. As one thing led to another, a few of us are now involved in a mutual aid group where I live.

Can’t we simply “second amendment” these fucking assholes? Violence is becoming the only solution in defeating Trump’s fascism.

Unfortunately, I have to agree with you, the reckless drama is increasing by the day, how many days do we have left? That is the question that’s going to hard to answer.

I’ve just about given up hope. I used to think the populace would rise up after being beaten down for so long. Then I realized we are a nation of mostly stupid people who do what they’re told. Only a small minority, including those on CD, are willing to speak out. The rest are just too busy with their iPhones.

You Postal employees be sure to continue to vote for republicans. They are doing a job on you.
Actually they are doing a job on everyone.
What kind of workforce will we have if the 20-30 million jobless are reemployed at some point.

How high is the water mama? 5ft. high and rising.

This kind of shit is why folks believe this health crisis is a govt manufactured crisis. It makes some folks think the “botched” testing is deliberate; possible mandated phone tracking of people is a way to infringe on our constitutional right to privacy. The subsidies to big corporations is another massive transfer of wealth. And it’s why some people give up on the whole system and decide to not vote (because of the corruption) or to vote for a lunatic like trump.

“Stroman was specifically key on elections and vote by mail—this is not a good sign.”
—Jessica Huseman, ProPublica

But of course a very good sign for the Republican, Fascist, Party. They need to be destroyed non-violently; otherwise, you can bet your last dollar it will just be a matter of time until they destroy us violently!

Need to start from local and build upwards with government that serves the People first, nullifying Federal jurisdiction over local at every step “up” until usg is indeed irrelevant. I also like the idea of compacts between states that do the same thing and secession as I do believe that international recognition would be instantaneous and a buffer against the revenge the evil, deranged Feds would want to employ.

there is only one “group” of USPS employees that vote that way, and they too are in a rapid decline, numerically speaking…

Trump may not have to win again, Jared is already talking about delaying the fall elections until the coronavirus is eliminated.

If the GOP axes the post office, they surely will be shooting themselves (and all the rest of us) in the foot. These changes will have the most severe impact on what the GOP considers its base: rural and working class people – and veterans as they make up a large portion of post office workers or post office pension holders who possibly stand to lose that if the post office is privatized.
Others of us are elderly – and some like a relative I spoke with last evening via phone, has no Internet and no way to pay bills except by mail.
I asked my congress people if they didn’t fund the post office they were going to fund utility bills for all senior citizens!

Privatization: worst mistake ever. I’m retired from the Postal Service with 31 years. It has lots of issues, but Trump doesn’t know the mail from his rear end.

It’s clear we’re in the late stages of a fascist takeover. Massive peaceful resistance to it is likely to be met with some violence on their part, which is likely to bring thousands to the resistance. Violence on our part is likely to destroy the last restraint on their behavior and be met with massive violence, frightening the country into submission, as such actions are meant to. And it would be wrong.

We need to reach as many people as we can now to tell them what’s happening and what it means.

I never would have tried psychedellics if I had known this bad trip would go on for my whole life.
