    But the "sane" ones in either party are carbon copies that are not moving the needle in the right direction. All they do is debate and NOTHING ever gets done because the votes aren't there etc. At least the wackos are making noise and grabbing the headlines. Hopefully it gets moderates to understand we gotta do some shit together or else these idiots are gonna do it for us.

    Inflation. Gas prices. Food prices.

    Both parties are doing FUCK ALL and seem to just wanna ride it out. Please don't tell me they can't do shit. Do the Democrats understand they're gonna get blown out?

    I hope Dems aren't relying on the overturning of Roe to galvanize the base and put them over the top. Thats not happening.

    Hopefully it doesn't happen the same day as a Trump rally so the two don't become interconnected for eternity.

    Grabbing headlines is different than solving problems.

    But nobody is solving problems so we might as well be entertained by the fringe.

    It's all fringe... especially here. Earths greatest minds setting it all straight at the vhlinks after it happens in real time.

    That's how it all started--being entertained by the fringe. But as the fringe becomes more mainstream, it becomes a bit more concerning. And, I know you don't want to hear it, but I really believe this enabling of the fringe started with your boy. However ALL of that blame doesn't solely fall on him, as the people are the ones voting in these whackos.

    I wholeheartedly agree with you how frustrating it is that little is being done about inflation and all that. It's significantly affecting our wallets and that's never a good thing. Maybe a strong vocal uprising is what needs to happen.

    For me, the blame in government is always bipartisan.

    And, to answer your other post, yeah, I think the Dems are well aware of the strong potential for an ass-kicking in the fall.

    None of them on either side care what any of us say. It's going to take a lot more than words or breaking some windows and entering their hallowed building to make any changes. The Democrats are fully aware they could lose big in November and have done little to nothing to change that with policies. They have something planned other than just letting the chips fall where they fall. The Republicans are over confident that they will win big, they should but I think the Democrats have this covered.
