We vehemently bid goodbye to this nightmare of a year, the quarantines, empty shelves of toilet paper, nurses forced to wear garbage bags, and ignorant white people declaring in public places that wearing a mask and sanity is oppression.

We are now facing, for the first time in our history, three deadly and persistent enemies at once; with one being the implosion of the Economy.

In Montana, Republicans are characterizing better schools and hospitals as "socialist" and a Republican chairman in Montana has just enunciated that anyone who votes for a candidate that he deems to be Socialist should the murdered. He claims that the Constitution says so.
The story over at Boeing came out after the first crash. Of course the second crash need never have happened. Hundreds of people were killed for no good reason. They died, human beings ripped to shreds, and burned to charred husks, for ego.
The Republican Party has been funneling money from foreign anti-Democratic regimes and "investors" into the nation's political processes for decades.
