"Particular Cruelty"

.

I began to take politics seriously during  the 1968 Detrout Riots. No, not rebellion, not insurrection. Riots. The city burned out caucasion businesses. It took 20 years to reconstruct large patches of burned out sub-standard apt. buildings and rotting slumlord houses. And grocery stores - why we have so few stores today.
.

Since the precursors: Power To The People and By Any Means Necessary evolved to Black Lives Matter in 2020, change in the rhetoric is finally shifting toward discussion about and inclusion of people of color. (only took 1719-2021).

.

To be at war with the Constitution to denigrate, demote, disenfranchise, and dismiss 14% of a nation's population based on the fact that they are descended from Africa is a movement currently underway. Trumpism  is a process at work to destroy the Republic disguised as Conservatism supported  by the usa's uber wealthy aristocracy. Senate seats are bought and sold like candy over a candy store counter. Which you already know.
.

Back a few years, I opined that the radical far right was taking over the rise of Conservatism.  Little King Trump promoted, including lies leading to insurrection, nothing that approaches Conservative values. I listened to Liz Chaney's speech today, after she was disrespectfully voted out of the GOP leadership, for calling Trump a liar and not fit to lead the Republican Party. She called for a return to Conservative values which may lead to a defection of voters to Democratic candidates in city,  state, and national elections. She spoke of  Autocracies and dictatorships, effectively ending her career. She may have to lead a new party and run for President against GOP candidate Trumpled. That would be interesting. 

.

A split in the GOP would create the same outcome. 100 elected Republican leaders are proposing formation of a new party. Go Republicans! Slogan: No more storming The House of Representatives! GOP got a wake-up call that day. Trumpster, what are you doing? 

.

The world's leaders give us low marks as a Democracy. Good thing for usa that it is a Republic. Money is speech and a sad human like Donnie Poo bought a Presidency. Here, non-Democratically, we rig voting unconstitutionally, threaten union workers, and support lies. World leaders got usa wrong. We are not a Democracy, usa is a Republic. We let brown Indians (from India) die for lack of oxygen and vaccines. There was a time when . . . Do we need an additional lyric to The Battle Hymn of the Republic. Absolutely!

.

Now, pharmaceutical companies conduct usa diplomacy at the pointed end of a gun called profit. Conform, pay up, or die. Trumplet signed a contract with pharmaceutucal companies not to guve vaccines to foreign companies until usa citizens are vaccinated. Sell yes, give no. In usa the people starve and Wall Street thrives. Women will lose their unemployment choice to stay home with their children because low wage capitalists refuse to pay a living wage to women. Misogyny, White Supremacy, Autocratic, and racism as values rule here. Somebody ought to change that.
