Elections Have Consequences, Part Whatever
Lest anyone believe Republican trolls are being distracted in any way from doing harm to our country and the world, they should reflect on this sampling of headlines from our hometown paper today:
The House just voted to wipe away the FCC’s landmark Internet privacy protections
Trump signs order at the EPA to dismantle environmental protections
Trump withdraws reappointment nomination of popular whistleblower advocate
Trump signs bill that kills Obama-era Worker Safety Rule
Panic spreads in Iraq, Syria as record numbers of civilians are reported killed in U.S. strikes
Just as there were similar stories yesterday, there will be more tomorrow.
It's funny how elections have consequences, especially when you turn the government over to weasels, vandals and nihilists.
