Too Late Now

I knew the moment I got up this morning to check my e-mail that I would be getting “BREAKING” and URGENT messages about the nomination of the next white Christian guy nominated to the Supreme Court, along with appeals to send money to defeat the nomination.

Not that I’m in favor of putting Brett Kavanaugh on the bench or that I don’t think that he won’t be the one to find a way to overturn Roe vs. Wade or uphold the corporation-as-person or find new ways to extend “religious liberty” into outright bigotry in terms of marriage equality or let the 2nd Amendment be the absolute law of the land, the time to have worked to keep him or any other like-minded 19th century-precedented jurist off the bench was in 2010, 2012, and 2016 when people who should care about those issues and keeping them safe from Mike Pence decided not to vote.

Thanks a lot, you lazy jerks or you purists who thought Jill Stein could make a “statement.”  Well, here’s a statement for you: my great-nephew George will be well into his forties before the seat becomes available again, and time and the actuarial tables don’t make it look good for those who stand against the onslaught of Jesus-shouters and corporate greed.  So you owe him and his generation and those to follow something more than, “Sorry, but I didn’t think it mattered.”

3 barks and woofs on “Too Late Now

  1. Your two cousins, daughters of your uncle who was a fan of Rush, decided they could never vote for Hillary so they chose the flakey Jill Stein. I wish I could gin up the nerve to call them on it. Maybe you can.

  2. I hope Hillary is feeling really bad these days. I mean REALLY BAD. Same goes for John Podesta (both of them for running a horrible campaign), Jill Stein (her votes were enough to have flipped the outcome of the election), and Susan Sarandon (for being a pompous “idealist”). Oh and you “never Hillary” Bernie supporters: how’s that working out for you?

Speak!
