Tienes cuatro años?

Here are the rest of Jose Pagliery’s tweets:

This is why we resist.

This is why we are fighting this monstrous regime that has taken over the United States government.

This is why everything fucking sucks and I hate blogging now. Hate it.

This is why we can’t hold our heads up around the world anymore.

This is what the Russians want.

This is what makes it so the Chinese can put people in camps by the millions.

This is why the world is scared.

This is why you can’t help but wonder what made monsters out of Americans.

This is why there is fear when there should be hope.

This is why four year olds are growing up way faster than they should.

This is why our anger is building to the point where I don’t think anyone in the GOP really sees it. You can’t keep pushing evil into the public spaces that surround us without there being something equally toxic that emanates from our politics. I’m done with hoping these people come to their senses. That hope died after Charlottesville when so many kept working for Trump. There should have been mass resignations and there weren’t because these people prefer the evil to everything else. There should have been more of an outcry last year when the family separation plan was put into action and our government abducted children from their parents and injected them into a ridiculous system of court appearances like the one outlined above.

You see, in a number of years, that little girl is going to come to the realization of what happened to her. It will dawn on her what was done, what she lost, what was taken from her, what the Federal Government of the United States of America put her and her mother through, and she may not even know where her mother is at that point. That realization makes people into something we may not have the understanding for. It may make her sullen, bitter, angry or indifferent. It may make her a candidate for higher office or someone on their third stint in the county jail. It may make her a productive member of society or someone who doesn’t give a shit about anything so why try anymore.

Did we really need to do this to that little girl? No, but it was done to her.

Did anyone think about the consequences?

No, because the evil and the cruelty of it was the point all along.

If that doesn’t make you resist, then what would?

Democrats Are Trying to Save America

Never forget that Trump is a bum. A cheating, lying, stealing bum. He's the kind of bum that gives actual bums (who are usually down on their luck and doing the best they can) a bad name. He's a bum on purpose, you see, and that's the kind of bum that the American people want to see thrown out of office. He's never going to be presidential because he's just a goddamned bum, you see.

But, sometimes, I think the media is worse:
As Washington braces for this week’s expected vote to impeach President Donald Trump, partisan battle lines hardened on Sunday, with Democrats defending impeachment even if Trump isn’t removed from office and Republicans denouncing the integrity of the constitutional process.The Democratic-controlled House planned to vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against the Republican president, and the decision whether to make Trump the third U.S. president in history to be impeached was expected to play out along party lines. There is some d…

Spoiler Alert

Tulsi Gabbard is going to work very, very hard to re-elect Trump:
Tulsi Gabbard has been slowly edging toward leaving the Democratic Party and, it now seems more likely than not, launching a spoiler candidacy to peel disaffected left-wing votes away from the Democrats. Her “present” vote on impeachment, followed by a disavowal of what she called the “zero-sum mind-set the two political parties have trapped America in,” sets the stage for Gabbard to play the role of 2020’s Jill Stein.Left-wing anti-anti-Trumpism played an important role in the bizarre 2016 outcome.Die-hard Bernie activists, fired up with anger at the release of DNC emails stolen by Russians that purportedly showed the party had rigged the primary, demonstrated against the party outside its convention hall and tried to drown out the speakers inside with boos. Stein attacked Hillary Clinton from the left, then audaciously staged a grift-y fundraising scheme supposedly to hold recounts in the states she had labored to flip…

Trump Will Burn it All to the Ground

It is difficult to see how the latest war in the Middle East will end. I don't have any answers, and, really, no one else does, either.

Here's what people should pay attention to--this happened just as evidence of Trump's orders to the Department of Defense landed on the front page. This happened after the major holidays and just as we are beginning the 2020 primary season in earnest on the Democratic side (the GOP has decided to prevent another Pat Buchanan moment, circa 1992, from happening).

Every life that is lost is because of Trump's decisions.

Every penny that this increases the price of gas is a tax on the poor and allows people who regularly have access to Trump to maximize their profits.

Every American traveling overseas is less safe.

Everyone who cares about peace will be shouted down and marginalized because that is the media's job.

Every attempt to hold Trump accountable will probably fail because the GOP is complicit in all of his crimes.

Everyone ch…
