Welcome to the new version of the McCarthy Era

Yes folks, and it only took one life time (mine and people my age) to reinvent the McCarthy era.  You can thank Donald Trump for that.  Here it is from his own mouth:

“In honor of our great Veterans on Veteran’s Day, we pledge to you that we will root out the Communists, Marxists, Racists, and Radical Left Thugs that live like vermin within the confines of our Country, lie, steal, and cheat on Elections, and will do anything possible, whether legally or illegally, to destroy America, and the American Dream…. Despite the hatred and anger of the Radical Left Lunatics who want to destroy our country, we will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.” 

Years ago, I never would have believed it.  But here we are again.  Talk about a tailpipe of a party.  What a life. 

“The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man [or woman] who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.”
Variously credited to Mark Twain or Edward Abbey.

    You ended with “what a life”. You actually allow this stuff to affect your life? Everything will be fine bud, just relax. We have Birds-Chiefs coming on Monday night, lets focus on what’s important.

    You're just keeping it going by paying any attention to it.  I had no clue that even happened until I saw your post.  I'll know to skip it next time.  Shame on me.

    Mostly same reply as my other one.  I compartmentalize person worries and big issue concerns.

    A lot of MAGA still use "Deplorable" on their social media handles. But that was "different" I suppose.
