Note to self: dump Pfizer stock ahead of the inauguration.

(looks at photos of Trump supporters, observes clear evidence of metabolic disease risk factors)

Belay that. Keep the Pfizer stock, double down on stent manufacturers and Phillip Morris.

Don’t forget kidnap random people off the street with no charges, a la Pinochet’s Argentina Chile.

Guy holding her was identified and fired from his job at a car dealership. Haven’t seen if he had been arrested yet.

β€œOw my lungs.”

… and / or the Senate Majority leader…

… and their lackeys, among them, some current U.S. senators…

… and of course the Hitler sympathizers newly sworn into this U.S. congressional session…

… so yeah one could say we are well past the whole β€œemboldened” racists and rioters at this point.

The barbarians are inside the gates, have been normalized by MSM and social media, have been seated and institutionalized for years, have accelerated existing racist policies, and have started a bunch of new ones.

And then all the complicit β€œjust doing my job” folks carried out those policies.

The sheer number of U.S. participants on U.S. soil executing these policies, as government employees, contractors, subcontractors, etc. is going to be hard to accurately identify, and we live1 among these participants.

What to do about those people?
Will there be some kind of truth and reconciliation commission when Cult45 exits the WH?
Or will there be more of their same bier hall putsch-ing BS we saw this week, and that’s what’s going to clog up all the media space and public discourse?


1. I was friends with a lawyer who took a job with ICE in 2016. We fell out of touch or stopped talking to each other. One of her early jobs out of law school was to observe presidential elections in Central America. At that time, I saw her as a decent, good human. I sure hope she quit her job ASAP.

I’m planning to harangue my representatives constantly to follow up on all this, including looking into unseating all the sitting congresspeople who got us here.
Has anyone seen anything like a pre-written script, like what’s often provided for letter-writing campaigns? I’ve been looking around but haven’t found one yet.

Check out 5 Calls. They provide mid-length scripts you can use when you call your representative/senator.

Chile. To be fair he didn’t put them in helicopters and fly out over the sea to push them off like the US installed dictator of Chile (Thatcher bestie) and his Chicago school of economics buddies.

Ugh. Thank you for the correction! That mistake makes me feel like an idiot, considering one of the songs that is on frequent rotation for me is Toad the Wet Sprocket’s Chile, with haunting lyrics about life in Pinochet’s Chile.

It’s not even close to the stupidest mistakes I’ve made around here. One military junta kinda resembles another after a while.

Maybe with all the resignations, he will finally appoint Chris Christie to something.
