Well, this is a totally wasted post, for example. You should clearly be opining about misogyny and fearing for your children.

We should have sunk to their level a few years ago. Enough of this hippie love shit. No one gets to tell people that we need to give Trump a chance. He has done nothing but destroy civil rights and rape the natural world in all of 2 weeks. So fuck him and the GOP. No Gods No Masters and may trump choke on a chicken bone or at least trip down the stairs.
Fuck Orin Hatch. Fuck him right in the ear. Motherfucker has been obstructing for 40 fucking years. He’s a raving hypocrite. Maybe this is the beginning of the dissolution of this country, and maybe the beginning of us splitting apart and self-selecting where to live and how to govern. Who the fuck needs the right wing? What good have they done in, what, 150 fucking years?
Hey, I am SO ok with this nation breaking apart into 2 or more nations, if it means being able to live in a place where we all basically agree on how to conduct a society.
It’s been a good 240 years. Time we went our separate ways, somehow.

These people are going to start a goddamn civil war. Y’all as scared as I am?
Yes. And I feel woefully unprepared. I’m broke, out of shape, and don’t have any weapons. My kitchen knives are even dull. I read an article where the writer explained that he got LASIK surgery on his eyes. Because wearing glasses or contacts will make things difficult in the wars to come. It nearly gave me a panic attack because I can barely see my hand in front of me without a vision aid.
This is what fascists do. This is fascism in action.
Like the CBP workers who sneeringly refused to honor court orders last weekend, who rebuffed democratically elected officials who had come to challenge the unlawful detentions, snickering that people could just take it up with Leader Trump, the Republican majority in Congress has, with the utmost, gleeful contempt, rejected and violated the fragile agreement that is democracy—and of course, the first thing we learn when that happens is that there is no enforcement mechanism.
There is nothing we can do to pull back democracy from these people, to restore constitutional order and the rule of law. Nothing.
Democracy is, forgive the old-style sexist construction, based on a “gentleman’s agreement.” It is, fundamentally, a handshake. It is a voluntary act. When one side decides unilaterally to shred the agreement, as the dark money Republicans have done, there are no remedies short of an uprising in the streets, and even that—in a fascist regime—is more likely to be an invitation to official mass murder, than a prelude to Mitch McConnell and his fellow-fascists smacking themselves on the foreheads, yelling, “What the fuck were we thinking?” and regaining a democratic conscience.
Jesus, people. This bears some generic resemblance to a fucking coup d’etat.
