I weep for my country

We’ve been subjected to the Supreme Leader, Cheeto, for six days now.  What he’s done, with the explicit support of other Republicans and tacit support from Democrats, is chilling.  Our country is becoming unrecognizable. He’s reinstituted the so-called “Mexico City … Continue reading

Nice. Let’s blame the victims.
