Reblogged from Mike the Mad Biologist (that is, cut & pasted, because it’s political & WP doesn’t let us reblog political stuff)

IMHO, the war came home A LONG TIME AGO but most affluent Americans never noticed it or they just don’t care or they’re in denial.

Of course the reblog button wouldn’t work, it’s about politics. But here’s the link:

The Truth about Trump’s devoted supporters
I feel the same way but I don’t have any problem cutting ties with friends who are devoted to Trump. The way I see it … hanging out & partying together thirty or forty years ago is something I did with a whole lot of people & doesn’t really mean that we were close friends. The fact that ANYONE could be a devoted supporter of Trump shows that we have absolutely nothing in common on a philosophical & spiritual level and that’s what means the most to me. The ONLY people that are not in this category are the members of my immediate family. & I mean immediate family. I will cut some slack for my mother, my brothers & my sisters but they are the only ones. There are cousins I no longer care to speak to. Oh … if we meet at a wedding or a funeral or some other reunion, I’ll be polite & all. But that’s as far as that goes.
As this country descends further into chaos & crapola, I don’t feel the need to remain friends with people who are part of the problem & indeed, are cheering on this descent.
Thanks to Jill Dennison at Filosofa’s World for turning me onto this great blog!
once again, the “reblog” button wouldn’t work, so I’m old-schooling it by cutting & pasting the URL:

I couldn’t agree more.
A “reblog” from The Propaganda Professor. Once again, the reblog key isn’t working but oh well. Maybe that’s because WordPress wants me to “upgrade” & I don’t want to. WHATEVER!!!!

This was posted on Jill Dennison’s blog. I wanted to simply reblog it but for some reason, I was unable to do that. So I’m sharing it the old-school was … copying & pasting the URL into my own blog post. Here’s the link:
