Beyond that, our healthcare situation is more precarious than ever. People are dying unnecessarily while their families are being driven to the poor house. The rich continue to pay less taxes while the poor just get poorer. Unarmed black people are still being killed by rogue police who are rarely held accountable. Women are losing the rights to their own bodies, while transsexuals are being erased. Children are being shot in schools, children are being housed in cages. Some of this is just so elementary in its wrongness that it astounds me.
I have to completely co-sign on this, and the weight of these horrors just one on top of the other, on top the other. It’s a avalanche of awfulness. Too much to even keep track of. I’m astounded that you did so with such cogency. And still there’s ever more that you didn’t mention…the world stage and how America is being perceived abroad…how the international community is planning on ditching us…and maybe even getting aggressive with us…who is ready for WWIII?
