no mistake. Trump, Barr, Pompeo, Graham, and numerous others are not
merely corrupt. They are enemies of the United States of America.
Despite cries of “America First” and assertions they are working for us,
they are financial internationalists. They don’t give a rip about
anything other than their next grift and they will sell us down the
river if there’s anything to be gained for them. We will continue to
decline as long as they hold the reins of our—repeat, our—government.
I’m happy impeachment hearings are finally under way, but we need to
pay close attention to everything that’s going on, and we need to be
ready to take matters into our own hands. I’m taking about organizing,
demonstrating, marching, striking, boycotting, and whatever it takes to
fight back. Our health, our wealth, our freedoms, and everything we hold
dear are being slowly eroded by people who have neither the right, nor
the desire, to be public servants.
Eyes on the prize, my friends.
And make sure you elect progressives to every local office you can:
Park Board; Board of Education; City Council; Mayors, etc.

I’ve been getting more and more comfortable with Photoshop’s many editing tools, chief among them layers, cloning, blending, and various level adjustments.
I find politics, especially the clowns in the Trump administration, wonderful subjects for my efforts. For instance, recently the Attorney General, William Barr, responded to a question about whether or not he was worried about his legacy with the following:
“I am at the end of my career. Everyone dies and I am not, you know, I don’t believe in the Homeric idea that you know, immortality comes by, you know, having odes sung about you over the centuries, you know?”
Aside from his use of the filler “you know” four times in one sentence, I was stuck with the thought, “is he being stoic or nihilistic?” I’m still not sure, but the statement reminded me of a song by George Harrison. I found a pic of the album cover, researched then downloaded the proper font, and tweaked the cover like so:
I think he looks appropriately unconcerned, don’t you?
