Today is a Tragic Day for the United States of America


This is a tragic, tragic day for my country. The United States of America ain't what she used to be.

The Republicans have been trying to get to this day since 1980. And today, they cemented the oligarchy.  Today, with the passage by the House of their GOP "health care" bill, they actually cheered when they threw the 99% to the wolves. Such a sad, sad, sad day. And, for many of us, terrifying. What kind of country is this anymore, really? Congratulations, Reagan Republicans. We are now living in the wild, wild west. It is everyone for themselves. In the immortal words of Sawyer from my beloved TV series, LOST: "It's Lord of the Flies time now."
