I regret to remind you that the United States is absolutely fucked

Yay, Joe Biden won. But the rot that exists inside the United States, mostly with brain-dead right-wingers who are spoon-fed fascist propaganda 24 hours a day by a network owned by a nihilistic, elderly Australian billionaire, is not going anywhere any time soon I assure you. The President has gotten his fake DOJ investigation andContinue reading “I regret to remind you that the United States is absolutely fucked”
