America is so divided, this can only get worse from here.  Rush Limbaugh?  Why not Ted Nugent, or Kid Rock?  

I can't wait for the apre SOTU parade.

Murica so divided that no matter what the other side does, it won't change their vote.

That wasn't true then, and it isn't true now.

"America, founded on the evils of slavery, genocide and the violent exploitation of the working class, is a country defined by historical amnesia. The popular historical narrative is a celebration of the fictional virtues of white supremacy. The relentless optimism and reveling in supposed national virtues obscure truth. Nuance, complexity and moral ambiguity, along with accepting responsibility for the holocausts and genocides carried out by slaveholders, white settlers and capitalists, have never fit with America’s triumphalism. “The illusions of eternal strength and health, and of the essential goodness of people—they were the illusions of a nation, the lies of generations of frontier mothers,” F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote."

"The essential American soul is hard, isolate, stoic, and a killer".

One quote claims America is a killer, the other that America was a killer, but it is erased in mythology and replaced with "illusions of... the essential goodness of people".  Other than they are both taking a swipe at America, they are not saying the same thing.

I would say the Venezuelans worried about what Pelosi does and taking to Twitter are the lucky ones.

Years into an unprecedented crisis in Venezuela, millions are struggling to survive, unable to meet even their minimum needs for food, water and healthcare, while living under the threat of Nicolas Maduro’s policy of repression against those who express their discontent. Almost 4.8 million people have fled the country in recent years.

That is over 10% of the population, and probably 99% of them are not super fans of Maduro.  Why do you like this guy again?

The killing was a lot fresher when DHLawrence was around, sunny jim.
