So, now that I took a short nap and I feel a bit calmer about the dayâ€™s events, I say this without a trace of hysteria in my voice.
This country is a ShitShow.
Anyone with an IQ higher than the speed limit knew that conservatives were stacking the Supreme Court expressly for the decision to overturn Roe v Wade. Anyone that claims the belief of what the latest round of judges said during their confirmation hearings is lying. There is no rule of law. It no longer matters if you lie under oath. Weâ€™ve lived through a Presidential Administration where hundreds of laws were ignored, subpoenas were tossed aside, and few questions were answered. Take off your seat belt, use lead paint, throw some asbestos confetti, the law no longer matters. There is no established law. Precedent is gone and it can be overturned by moody judges with an agenda.
Women are second class citizens. Full stop. I expect that by the end of next year, perhaps sooner, they will be relegated to cooking, cleaning, and carrying children until they are barren. Then they will take care of the whims of their husband, divorce will probably be outlawed, and they better have the pipe and slippers ready.
The gay stuff? I ainâ€™t going back in the closet and Iâ€™ll probably be shot for it but at least Iâ€™m true to who and what I am. I donâ€™t care. Thereâ€™s no law, thereâ€™s no civil discussion, thereâ€™s no civility.
Foreseeable elections will be so compromised because of phony election laws and gerrymandered districts and over-regulated voting regulations to the point of no return. Iâ€™ve said it before and Iâ€™ll say it again, Iâ€™m happy Iâ€™m on the back happy of my life. Grateful. Thankful. I remember what was.
The question is, who will collapse first, me or the country?
