As much as I’ve joked about it, even leaving the country seems like a poor option; there’s nowhere in the world that’s not affected by what the United States does, and this is the only place in the world that has any say in its direction.
So, it seems to me there are two main priorities:
- Supreme Court nominations: The Repugnants do not have a filibuster-proof majority, so we have some hope of blocking extreme appointees, especially given the prevailing public sentiment on abortion.
- Dump Bloomberg: Next year, we have to get rid of this fool, whose biggest worry yesterday was apparently which cookies to buy. His support of a party and an administration that is so implacably inimical to New York is unforgivable; idiocy like the various stadium proposals is just icing on the Krispy Kreme.
The quote above, from Fannie Lou Hamer, was this morning’s randomly generated email .signature. The other quote that comes to mind is from Woody Allen: “More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness, the other to total extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.”
