In a great move against Russian trolls, a Finnish court sentences trolls and fines them.
Having just scanned the various websites I look at each day a common theme is evident. Many sites have individual pages for opinions. Others are total opinion sites. What I saw in common in the opinion pieces was each demanding that their issues should outrage Americans and make that their top issue.
Two years ago it would have been possible to prioritize outrageous issues. There was not an outrageous act every twenty minutes from a senile, old man with serious DSM 5 matching symptoms. Even if he was saying things, it was with minimal impact as he was not in power. Now, we are having a serious issue trying to keep track of and stay outraged at everything.
Today the horrible person causes direct and indirect results when he says or uses social media to express his hate of one thing or another. He has no education in anything that makes humans human, so his proclamations are almost always incorrect or inane.
What we Dems have at the moment are so many horrendous issues from the guy that we cannot unite around only one. Do we go after the outrage de jour? Or, put together a top ten list? Or, focus on one issue that is a top polling issue and forget the misogynist, racist old fool?
His action, or act, is to throw dirty diapers at the wall. Nothing more. Come January 3, 2019 I hope at least one chamber of the Congress will bring some level of control on the executive branch. I think the Dems can do it if they spend the last two weeks focused on one issue such as health care finance and the opponent in the race.
No longer can you vote for republicans, there is only one Republican Senator left who cares about America. You can no longer not vote or make a “protest vote” for a third party, that is the same as voting for republicans. America is at the precipice and we have one election left to keep her from plunging into a crevice so deep she may never recover.
As we have seen the entire republican party has sold out, a few with Russian money, a few for their own income and a few for something that has not seen the light yet. But, I am not expecting that to be pretty when it does show up.
Vote Democratic Party only to save America. Vote Democratic Party only to save your life.
