trix has shocked me the last few days and I'm done with him for a while. It's like he's vamping the stereotypical "my way or the highway" Leftist that Handy thinks is all of us. It's irritating not just because it is alienating and ineffective, but it gives the Center and the Right fuel to disregard us as unreasonable ideologues. And that is precisely what we are not. The Right protects its privileges and entitlement in national political discourse by getting the public to dismiss the Left out of hand without listening (because once they listen they start nodding). Do not help them do that!
There can be no Uniter. The country is legitimately split, with approximately one-third of voters trapped in a radical right emotional spiral of identity and hatred. We have to hack off that limb. There is no negotiating with it. We have to get the other two-thirds of the country together and say Adolph doesn't get to play any more reindeer games.
