Judy’s Sin

from eurobrat

They wouldn’t send real Americans away to be stored.  Radical Muslims, sure.  Illegal immigrants, yeah.  Maybe welfare queens.  But not just…regular Americans.

That’s what Judy had nervously told herself for that entire six weeks, between the day she was first called in for questioning and the day when she was, in fact, sent to one of the country’s resident storage facilities.

She was young and stupid when she took those pictures.  Since then, she had turned her life around.  She was born again and regretted the things she had done when she was lost.  She was no longer that woman.

But in President Pence’s America, that didn’t matter.  Pictures “of an inappropriate nature” like hers meant she was a defective citizen.  A friend found the pictures somewhere and submitted a complaint…because of course they did.  Everybody did that.  If the situation were reversed, she would have done the same.

Human Rights: We are Human

I’m depressed this weekend and I don’t think I’m alone.

I feel overwhelmed by life in the United States.

How sad to watch intelligent people defend the rise of cruelty, lies, and chaos.

Trumpism plays havoc with my DID because this is the abusive world of my childhood: the racist bullies with swastikas and white robes; homophobes who murdered gay  men with impunity.

The 1960’s was a time when it seemed the only lives that mattered were the lives of straight white men but we did have a government that imposed  the rule of law; we did have a government the people could petition for change.

The Trump Administration at war with Americans who value human rights and the rule of law.

His cult members no longer recognize their fellow citizens human.

The United States has a sickness and it’s destroying our lives.

How sad to progress this far only to come back to life as a  dehumanized target in fear for his life.

We are human.

After all these years, why does this still need to be said?

Keith, bless his heart, is not going away.

“We do not have time for the White House edition of Celebrity Apprentice starring President-Elect Pussy Grabber.”

“Since no Democratic or liberal politician has yet stepped forward out of the morass of Politics Inc. to take on the responsibility of The Resistance, I, with complete awareness of the presumptuousness and arrogance of this statement, volunteer myself, and I will gladly turn over all these burdens to any more legitimate and informed lawmaker or political or cultural leader who has the guts to take these burdens.”

“The first step is to complete the de-legitimizing of his presidency and his election. De-legitimizing that he himself began.”
