Orange Sky

Orange sky outside my window; unspeakably apocalyptic. I'm just amazed by how dark the smoke has made everything. It's like it's nightime, yet these were shot at around 1:00 this afternoon.















The Republican Party's Growing Desperation

I know that in my last posting I was hyperly focused on the plausible likelihood that the Democrats had thrown the election to Donald Trump, and so I think it's only right to balance that with this post. If there's 1 fact that's not lost on the Republicans, it's that they're not going to glide to an easy victory in holding onto the White House this year; they know. This is because of Donald Trump losing more credibility by the second thanks to his continual stream of falsehoods and race-baiting. People can't stand any more of his constant lying and utter imcompetence; especially with his failed response to the COVID-19 outbreak that started in January.

But this is a bigger drain on the Republican Party in the sense that their arguement of making the government small enough to drown in the bathtub has brought about the deaths of almost 200,000 Americans, and has lead to the biggest wealth gap since the roaring '20s. Their inaction illustrates very clearly why we need government, even with its inefficiencies; and why the private sector can not be relied on for certain things. The fact is that the Republican Party has lost its ability to churn out effective policy to benefit people's lives. They have no policy ideas, and their strategy of relying on White Supremacy is starting to fail them as there are fewer older, racist White Americans available to keep them going.

By not having largely expanded their base outside of White America, the Republicans now know that policy and fairly contested elections are not winnable for them. Their platform does not appeal to younger, diverse voters, nor to Americans living paycheck-to-paycheck. But what's killing them even more is that no one is falling for their scare tactics anymore and are actually standing up to them. This was something that they did not expect at all when fielding Trump four years ago. People are on to their tax-and-austerity scam, as they're living it right now. Underneath everything is a body politic that is ready for the type of change the Republican Party is simply not capable of producing.

Nancy Pelosi Has Potentially Cost The Democrats The Election

I don't know how to make any sense of Nancy Pelosi's recent actions, but I can say that it's done an unnecessary amount of damage to the Democratic Party heading into the homestretch before the election. The last thing we as Americans need is to have someone give something to Donald Trump as a path to reelection. Trump, as i've noted on here on more than a few occasions, is the most corrupt and incompetent president in my lifetime, but Nancy's actions are just inexcusable. She is the fricking Speaker of the House of Representatives, the third-highest ranking official in the federal government. This could potentially cost the Democrats the support they had from Independent (no party affiliation) voters, and make Joe Biden's job of unseating Trump that much harder. This is exactly why we need new leadership in the Democratic Party as the current leadership is badly out of touch with the rest of the electorate. We cannot endure another 4 years of Trump or 6 years of Mitch McConnell.
