Get Over It
I’m giving it a day, maybe three, before “get over it, you lost” begins to show up in our feeds. Not this year or next you dumb ass Marks.
Yes, Marks. The targets of a con job. In this instance, a spectacular 40 year con with the end game of creating a legal basis for minority rule by a patriarchal aristocracy of wealthy sons of wealthy sons of wealthy sons. It is simply about money. It’s more than maintaining country club memberships and paying the upkeep and salaries for their super yachts, five homes and servants. They want their children and their children’s children to enjoy the same lifestyle in future dollars. Legacy is the term that comes to mind. They believe in and want to restore the old aristocracy, where bloodline is all that matters.
Anyone who thinks it’s about religion or race or gender or guns has fallen for the con. Both/all sides of those issues and all the other little wedges. All of us have fallen for the greatest con in history.
We are all Marks, but intelligent, nay, liberal thinking people have the sneaky ability to learn from our mistakes. We learn from history. We actually admit, address and learn from our failures. Entrepreneurs call this “failing up”.
Smart business people also don’t ignore new technologies or paradigms that are coming to destroy decades or centuries old business models. The truly smart ones embrace the new and sometimes even become that which destroys their old model.
So no. I won’t get over it any time soon. I intend to learn from failure, tear down the old and build a better product.
America was never great. The America we know would not exist without slavery and genocide. Your wonderfully free America, the America that’s been really good to my family, that America has always been a con. And America has failed.
The “Great Experiment” is a failure that needs to be torn down and rebuilt with a better model. Completely, utterly from the ground up.
I won’t get over it. I’m going to change it.
Note: this post was originally published on dailykos.com and I’ve copied it here unedited. The post was written in response to the Kavanaugh week. The week when the GOP completed their 40 year effort to obtain minority rule of the U.S.A.
The Republican distraction machine is in high gear. Democrats and other thoughtful Americans need to be aware and avoid going down the rabbit holes of distraction.
I miss America, Land that I loved,
Stood beside her, and held her
Through the night with a light from above.
Puerto Ricans are not covered by the Bill of Rights! We have two classes of citizenship in this ” all men are created equal country”. They have their own Constitution and Bill of Rights, similar to ours but are expressly not covered under ours.
Polling at 6% alongside Stein at 2%, I wonder if my @govgaryjohnson supporting friends really want history to view them as the people that elected Trump? Wouldn’t you rather be seen as the 6% that saved the world from fascism.
Intelligent Americans, know that compromise is what makes us great. We got here by taking 3 steps forward, one step back. Not by taking 3 steps back. We all suck it up for the greater good as we push this ungainly democracy forward. Yeah, democracy and freedom take work because freedom isn’t free.
Don’t give me the “voting my conscience” stuff. We saw what that can do in 2000 to give us W. My personal beliefs have always been to the left of Bernie, yet I understand that I share this land with 300 million others who may be as strong in their opposite beliefs as I am in mine.
If you truly have a conscience, use it Tuesday to show the world that the United States of America is indeed the conscience of the free world.
The covenant of America, the smooth transition of power rests on the mutual respect of the fact that all people are created equal and are given an equal fighting chance to leave the world a better place for their grandchildren.
Stand with us. Stand with her for civility. Stand for America. Stand for all people’s in the constant struggle to just have a pleasant life.

One day in the not too distant future….
Four “journalists” sipping Trump Bourbon in the piano bar inside the Smithsonian’s President Donald J. Trump Institute of Tweets(known as The TiT). The TiT is the largest museum on the mall, having displaced the old Washington Monument, which as you know fell during the super quake of 2018. an aside… many scientists on the illegal underground GreenNet feel certain that frakking under The Whitehouse caused the quake… but I digress
The “journalists”, all white males, were debating the end of press freedoms with the Make America Great Again(MAGA) laws of April 1, 2017. (the MAGA were based on the Ukrainian Anit-Protest laws https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-protest_laws_in_Ukraine).
It is a common debate amongst academics, historians and other’s who somehow manage to avoid the thought police, even in public places. I’m told that they speak in an language similar to pig latin but actually derived from emojis. Journalist one says, “(ง ͠° ͟ل͜ ͡°)ง ” and two replies “﴾͡๏̯͡๏﴿ O’RLY?” while three holds his tongue :-X and four expresses some confusion o_O or O_o …. (ﾟДﾟ)
Colon dash left parenthesis
The debate translated:
Some scholars think that “impartial” “journalists” reporting on the last election of 2016 gave the candidates equal respect, thus assisting President Trump to his great ascension to the throne.
Exiled researchers at the University of Nova Scotia attribute the Trump landslide and the end of freedom to a masterful marketing professional who went by the name of The Donald. The Donald, or His Highness, laid down a subconscious marketing strategy for nearly two decades which caused the entire press corps, even liberal leaning ones, to unknowingly support his efforts to achieve his takeover of The United States. They also have evidence that the Democratic party’s nomination of a powerfully speaking woman was instigated by The Donald and his partner Karl Rove. These expatriate researchers refer us to the papers of Sigmund Freud and the natural, male distrust of the mother figure. Two unfailing, brilliant strategies came together as a tidal wave of support for His Highness, Donald J. Trump.
But the consensus of a small but loud segment of journalism academia argues rather strongly that one Hillary D. R. Clinton is solely to blame. She, they argue, insisted on speaking about the boring issues and needs of regular people who it turns out only want to be rich and pay no taxes. She completely misread the American electorate of 2016, thinking that they actually cared about their neighbors, family and distant relatives.
Yes folks, this is the absentee ballot I mailed today. I am so excited to vote for Hillary and share it with the world.
Yes, this is legal in New Hampshire but not all states. This article explains
Fellow Democrats please remember that Will Rogers was right then and still right today. “I am not a member of an organized political party. I am a Democrat.”
If we all fell in step and eagerly got behind the party leadership at the snap of a finger, we’d be Republicans. If we didn’t argue incessantly, we’d be Republicans. If we didn’t think for ourselves, we’d be Republicans
Today’s “Stronger Together” rally in Portsmouth, NH was so much more than I ever expected. Thank you Bernie. Thank you Team Hillary and Thank you Hillary Clinton. The hashtag of the day should be #HesWithHer
The first unexpected occurrence, well after the 2 hours of planned waiting outside, was that the event actually started on time. That’s unheard of! Doors opened at 9am the event started at 11 and I was on the road by 12:45. A well run event by the NH Hillary team under Mike Vlacich’s leadership.
Also unexpected was the new layout of the venue and specifically the absence of bored faces behind the candidate. There were peeps standing on platforms to the sides, but not directly behind. Best move ever.
Bernie’s endorsement went way beyond anything I or my seat neighbors expected. With Hillary standing by his side, he went on and on, up and down the last 14 months. he took us on a thrill ride of highs and highers, then he let loose on tRump. I won’t repeat all the comparisons he made but dang if he didn’t nail tRump to the past. And he closed with the incredible future we can have with Hillary and the Progressive agenda. Thank you Senator Sanders.
Hillary. What can I say? She was amazing today. She laid out in clear terms how she is so unlike tRump and that the choice American’s face is one of a promising future or a return to the failed policies of the past. Go Go Hillary!
ps: the wise press will inform the public that Hillary once again screamed, Bernie wiped the sweat off his brow a few times and there were a few unconvinced Bernie supporters trying to make a fuss. They of course, won’t interview those folks to see if perhaps they are tRump staff in camo.
