New Thought has invaded and contaminated far too much of our culture. I have tweeted about it before and it annoys me no end to see it invade politics.

I mean, the entire argument for a Bernie Revolution is speaking it into existence, isn't it? So much so, he didn't even see the need to elect a Democratic House and Senate when he ran in 2016. He would just say Single Payer and it would happen.
Now it seems that there is the "Do Something" caucus who seem to want politicians to say the magic words that will make Donald Trump go away. They think we don't have COVID relief because Democrats don't demand it the right way.
Trump is still in office because Democrats have not been firm enough. It's not about laws, the constitution, it's about speaking things into existence.
It's all bullshit magical thinking that is all about blame. If things don't go your way, you didn't want it enough. If we follow the law, we don't want it enough. It's fuckery, nothing but fuckery.

I am accustomed to being the only white person in the room. I don't get nervous about it. I don't recall ever seeing another white person at my laundromat in 10 years. But today was different, maybe because the other customers were young, Black men. Well, also one old Black man.
There had been a couple Black women, but they left to do errands while their dryers ran. So, the guys all congregated on the other side and were mostly having fun, except every time they got a little loud or laughed, they would hush each other.
Obviously, Karen has been enough of a problem that I made them uneasy about being themselves. The women came back to get their stuff, and alas, the whites had not dried. So they put some more money in and she folded up the rest of her stuff and heading out the door..

I am going to do something unusual and amplify some Republicans who earned my respect.

I will start with Oregon's Secretary of State Bev Clarno. She was appointed by Gov. Brown (D) when prior SOS (R) died. She ran our election & defended Vote-By-Mail.
True, all she did is what any professional electoral manager would do, but that is extraordinary in these times.

Now to the SoS in Georgia. Brad Raffensperger is probably incinerating his political career to defend Georgia voters and protect their votes.
He now has both Republican senatorial candidates calling for his resignation. He's getting death threats, and he has pissed of Trump and the Chair of the Judiciary Committee Lindsey Graham.

Andy Ngo routinely edits his videos to provide a narrative of white victimization by Black people. He is an anti-Black racist and promotes racist hate and white supremacy. A SE Asian man promoting white supremacy? Does that seem odd? Not really.
Racism in the United States is built on a racial hierarchy with Black people permanently at the bottom. Asians, particularly northern Asians from China and Japan, were excluded from Jim Crow in many states, for example, and were able to enter and use white public accommodations.
Add the model minority and other myths that are used to divide minoritized people in America from each other and some Asians identity more with whiteness than with being a minoritized person. Nikki Haley identifies as white, for example. Many Indians focus on their Aryan roots

I really am baffled by this. If someone absolutely agrees that free college and debt forgiveness will harden racial disparities, but still thinks they should be prioritized over policies that would address racial disparities basically because they are more salient.
The idea that equalizing public education is some pipe dream perfect that is the enemy of the good baffles me. The thing is, while public education is dependent on zip code and family wealth, making college free helps white people disproportionately. Address the education gap 1st
School loan lending is predatory and I would totally support the government taking over school loans and having people pay it back at 1% interest or some such. Simply forgiving those loans when so many people, and again, disproportionately Black people, Latino & Indigenous people

It's not for me to assign people jobs, but I do have a suggestion for @SteveSchmidtSES - he should head up some campaign to clean the Republican stables of Trumpism, to support and elect anti-Trump GOP in primaries, to encourage and advocate for the prosecution of admin crimes
Not the crime of different politics, but the crimes of inurement, accepting bribes, directing contracts to friends, family, and so on. Real crimes. Not thought crimes.

He could even call it Hercules' Struggle or the Augean Cleaning Crew, whatever.
You see, getting rid of Trump does not get rid of Trumpism and the @ProjectLincoln has a lot of work ahead if they hope to rehabilitate their party. Otherwise, they should form a centrist party that marginalizes the Trumpists, but I think they should at least try to take GOP back
