Too soon to make nice.


I'm thinking we can talk unity when McConnell gives back the judge positions he stole, releases and passes those 400 bills, and admits being a tool of Putin.
We can talk unity when cops stop being militarized and go to about 4 years of sensitivity training. When Black lives do matter to them.
We can talk unity when we stop setting new precidents like "first woman vice president" because it's just another woman, another South Asian descended, another gay, another person in the job. Because we are unified.
Want to talk unity? Stop dividing us. Stop stealing the wealth of the nation and putting it in the hands of the few. Stop giving healthcare to the so-called elite, like #IMPOTUS, before the rest of us can get it. Special salt in that wound for coming around and saying that Covid-19 is nothing to worry about while hundreds of thousands die.
Sure, let's talk unity. Take the knives out of our backs first.
Edit: I missed voter suppression. Want unity? Make elections really free and fair. Change campaign finance, redistricting, polling access, voting hours, and all the rest so if anyone wants to run, they can compete fairly. Prove in court that there's fraud or shut the fuck up.
While I'm at it, change the election of Senators to be by national district the same way Representatives are at a state level. Fix it so the people of Wyoming get the same voice as the people of California. It's important that rural folks have a voice, but not a bigger one than everyone else. Unity requires that.
It would be good to recognize tribal interests, too. I'm not at all sure how unity works with sovereign entities but we, the People, owe a huge debt.

The show was over all too soon.

The plumber arrived, and not a moment too soon.
