What’s the big deal!?

You may have noticed that I’ve been relatively quiet of late.? I’ve just been too damn defeated.? The US went crazy and everyone jumped out of the woodwork to normalize it.? Hey!? The former president of NAMBLA is here to lead the Boy Scouts into the future!? Hooray!

When I heard that Kennedy is resigning from the Supreme Court, I decided I’m done for good.? I just can’t stand it.? Especially with shit like this:

The consequences of Republicans’ denying a Supreme Court seat to President Barack Obama became real this week, as the court dealt a sweeping blow to public sector unions and voted to uphold President Donald Trump’s travel ban. Both votes were 5-4, and Justice Neil Gorsuch voted with the conservative majority both times.

The reason Gorsuch is on the court at all largely comes down to one person: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who refused to give Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, a shot at filling the seat vacated after Antonin Scalia’s death in February 2016. Garland never got a confirmation hearing or a vote; many GOP senators refused to even meet with him. McConnell pushed the argument that the next president should get to choose the next justice.

Democrats didn’t control the Senate at the time. But as they watch the Supreme Court now hand down major victories for conservatives, with Gorsuch playing a pivotal role, some of them wonder if they could have done more to stop McConnell.

“We should have shut down the Senate,” Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) said Tuesday. “We made a calculation that we were going to win the 2016 [presidential] election and confirm a nominee. And it didn’t work out.” [Oopsie!]

“Hindsight’s 20/20,” said Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.). “I think I would have liked us to take an even harder line.”

Fuck you.? Fuck all of you Congresscritters.? Fuck your families.? And fuck you, Middle America.? Y’all got invited to the arson party so grab a can and burn, baby, BURRRRRNNN.
