Ugh, like we needed another reminder that this administration and everyone in it is terrible. "Best People" my patoot.

 

Those poor kids.

Did you see the news that the Swamp Rat and Billy Barr have declared NYC, Seattle and Portland to be "anarchist cities," and on that basis will try to withhold all federal funding? Apparently they are "researching" to find others. No doubt they'll all be blue cities, in blue states, in the blue parts of the United States, where the majority of Americans reside. "We the People." Ha! It's "Us, the GOP Trumpites, trying to stage a takeover of the government of the United States."

 

I hope they're busy at Club Fed with gold plating the sink/toilet fixture in the cell reserved for Swampy. I also hope the Big Bad Barr gets John Mitchell's former digs -- the "disgraced Attorney General isolation cell."

~~Growling, Lee~~

They seem to be doing rather well at it.

A minority president, minority senate, now a minority court - all nice and legal.

Yeah... I'm, frankly terrified. I was hoping I'd never see my government go full authoritarian. Please vote.

 

Hugs!

Me too. Could you have ever imagined having to ponder what the military would do if a voted out President declared the election invalid, and refused to surrender office to the President-elect? What if he surrounds the White House with his heavily armed anonymous little green men who have been practicing in Portland and Seattle? Along with the White Nationalist Division of the Drumpf Ee-jit Legion, it might be a formidable group of donkeys out there stroking their long guns and fantasizing. Would the Army cite the Posse Comitatus Act and stay home, or would they respond to the urgent pleas for help from -- who? The Democratic Senate? We need a majority in that Chamber. 

 

How about John and the Supremes? Would they sacrifice their principles and supposed commitment to the Constitution and the Rule of Law to support their Appointer-in-Chief?

 

I think the American democracy is teetering on the brink, and the American Experiment is on the fast track to failure. This is the most important election in my life, and I lived through Watergate and the Cuban Missile crisis.

 

POWER TO THE PEOPLE -- including us. VOTE!

I'm kind of hoping that the US collapses just like the Soviets did and we mostly fracture into smaller units along ideological lines. I'd like to accomplish that with a minimum of bloodshed, but I think the military is too pumped for that to be a reasonable expectation.

 

Best case of course is a massive blue wave that lasts a couple of generations. The Republican party dissolves and the Democrats split into conservative and progressive wings.

 

Vote like your life depends on it. Because it does.

 

Hugs!

Ouch! Collapses? Into small chunks? Entropy? I hope not, but I totally agree with the "massive blue wave."

Fixing things will require the wealth of the world's wealthiest nation. If Biden is elected, and the Dems control both Houses, his first term and a big proportion of his second will be trying to pick up the pieces. We've got to insist the Feds restore and improve upon the environmental protections, consumer protections, election protections, health-care protections, infrastructure rehabilitation, space exploration ... and I'm sure I missed some categories ... that those jackasses have torn asunder to increase the income equality. And I value the international cooperation of the Western Democracies, because Putin is a threat, and so is Xi. Putin runs a second rate country, but he and Trump are succeeding in dragging us down to that level.  Xi runs the biggest country in the world, and is buying the US. I want to live in a Western Democracy large and powerful enough to protect us.

 

I prefer English to Rooski or Mandarin, and transitioning with all of you safely to being stoned all alone in the town square. Even by being on this site, we've exposed ourselves to that unless our country can/will protect us. Ya know?

 

Damn. All this just takes too much testosterone.

As a veteran myself (as are a number of us here) I am totally disgusted by the current regime's systematic destruction of our democracy.  The GOP has become adept at playing the system to overrule the will of the majority of Americans.

This does seem like a possibility.  However I am clinging to the unlikely possibility that we can somehow unite and reconnect with our allies.  That is the only way to resist this authoritarian wave that is moving over the world.  Unfortunately, it has taken root here as well and is being encouraged by many of our own politicians.

I'm not optimistic.

      Being 100% honest, I have actually grown pretty comfortable with my voice. It has always been pretty low (Even before I knew being trans was a thing)    When I was younger I actually really liked the idea of a lower voice, and I can remember people telling me that people wouldn't like me with an "Ugly voice" jokes on them people love my voice, and so do I.    When I play with my headset (When not grounded, rip) No one questions me and it's amazing, the most they question me is my age. Sometimes people think I am younger, but still male. That is a win in my book.    On top of my natural voice, doing some of the voice exercises have really helped. Of course when I get excited or scared it can pitch up a little bit, but I think it's pretty funny when that happens.

      My dad is the same way, I am his "Little princess" I am turning 18 and moving with my aunt and cutting ties the moment I set foot out of this hell hole of a house. My stepmom is worse but that's another story haha.    Hold strong man, you got this :DD

      Good call.

      I'm glad you found your pronouns. I'm taking a very laid-back approach. I was in a Fraternity my first go at college, and our chapter eventually went co-ed and Brother was used to refer to males and females, so that's what I prefer. Most of my Army buddies will likely wind up using my last name, which is cool. "Comrade" just doesn't sit well with me. Growing up under Reagan and Bush, Sr. and the last trappings of the Cold War has that word giving me the heebie jeebies. Until I start hormones and start assuming more of the mantle of my feminine identity I'm still going by my birth name.

      The salary looks great, but while my last job had the core needs of this as part of it, I think I am too old for the stress, but I would encourage any younger person to try for this one.  What a feather in your cap that would be.  I have known the people on the staff of NCTE for nearly 10 years and they are a great team.

      I actually don't mind the drive over to the main campus, especially now that it's close to where my Dad lives. We lost Mom at the end of August, so I know he is thankful for the visit. I hadn't thought about breastforms, or even getting a wig through the VA. In my head I envisioned the wig equivalent of birth-control glasses. Wigs can get expensive, so if the VA is gonna cover it, I might as welll. I'm also rated... 90% mostly in my lungs, feet and back.  
    • Jocelyn
      Thank you💜
    • Jandi
      Hi Darci My experience with the VA in Asheville has been good as well.  I would expect it will be the same for you.
    • Lee H
      Me too, Darci. Thanks for being here. Your post got me wondering if there's a feminine form of "comrade," and if so, whether cis women troops use it? Surprisingly obscure question, muddled by the Russian use of "comrade." Best answer I could find was that in English, "comrade" is an ungendered noun, and a tangent that led me to "girl." I don't know about you, but I call the MtF transitioners on this site, "girls." Well, I guess some cis women consider it demeaning, as in disrespectful or diminishing. I don't, but who am I to have an opinion?  I followed this rabbit hole because I would like to become as authentic a "girl" as I can be, irrespective of PC. So, Darci, to me you're a "girlfriend," and I like it like that. And, thanks for your service. Welcome home. ~~Here's a military hug, by the numbers -- Lee

      It is probably a good idea to tell people before hand. I should really talk to my sister first since she is hosting it. If she is comfortable with it then I can work on letting everyone else know.

      She's a really important person for the trans community in the province of Québec. I thought I would shine a light with my fellow english speaking forum friends I met her in person one time in my life and she helped me and so many others. She had the incredible "aura" of someone who cares a lot about other trans. It's something to ear people talk about such a person from afar but it's something else when that person helped you quite directly in your most desperate time.   https://blog.grsmontreal.com/en/marie-marcelle-godbout/
