We are seeing so much ugliness out there with people because they refuse to wear a mask or to not congregate in groups. I saw where a park ranger who told a group of people they needed to be socially distanced was pushed into a lake. So much ignorance and just plain meanness. It's like when tRump went into office all the ugliness just slithered out from under the rocks they'd been hiding under and are sunning themselves proudly for all to see. I have to believe that this must be similar to what it was like in Germany when Hitler took over, and somehow all the hate filled, vicious, ugliness was brought forward and made acceptable. Maybe if we can get him out of office, we can eventually return to some semblance of decency. After all, Germany did. I hope it's not too late, but once that ugliness is unleashed it's going to be very hard to get it back into the bottle.
I doubt McConnell is sending get well wishes to RBG. He's just sees another opportunity to fill a SC seat with a Republican. I can absolutely see him trying to get that done if something would happen to her. She is a survivor tho, & I hope she shows old McConnell who is tougher. LOL

Yup. That's why I can't allow myself to say, "That can't happen here. We're different." Not true. We're ugly, stupid, angry, mean spirited, ignorant, and nasty human beings. Look at what passes for a United States President today then tell me we're better than the rest of the world. Oh, and say it with a straight face.
I've had ugly things screamed at me. I've had beer bottles thrown at me. My life has been threatened. If you think these hateful, ignorant, and violent people are not around anymore think again. They're alive and well and have an advocate in The People's House.
When people are out of work and can't feed or house their family they need a scapegoat. For the Germans the Jewish people fit the bill. Please, stop saying "That could never happen here." Ignorant and angry people need someone to blame for their troubles. Devious politicians are more than happy to pick a group of people, blame them for the situation, sit back and let ignorance tear a country apart.
I am not surprised or shocked at anything this goon does.
He's a bully and a thug. He does not belong in the WH. He certainly isn't a president.
He's there because people did not want Hillary. He's there because of spite. A goon, a mob boss, born into wealth. Full of how great he is. He probably thinks, "How great thou art" is a hymn about himself.
I'm still having a difficult time getting comfortable with shame instead of pride about being an American. Change takes time.
Don't mess with older people. The older we get the less "life in prison" is a deterrent.
