Sleepwalking in the garden of fascism: “Merrily we roll along!”

Too many frowns can change the brightest disposition
As sure as clouds can darken the dawn
Yet every joy in life has been our one ambition.
And that’s how we intend to go on!

Merrily we roll along, my honey and me
Verily there’s no one half as happy as we

Merrily we dance along while facing the sun
Merrily our slogan is: ‘say, don’t we have fun?’
We live in style, with a smile and a song
As we merrily roll along!

Though we often quarrel for it’s human I’m sure
But we find there’s nothing that a kiss cannot cure
We’re for each other, how can we go wrong?
As we merrily roll along!

Everyone seems quite undisturbed by the non-prosecution of politicians in high places who have committed serious and blatant crimes, in broad daylight.

Trump introduced the normalization of the unthinkable, and the normalization of the unforgivable.

The Biden Administration and Attorney General Garland are now introducing the normalization of impunity for politically-motivated crimes at the highest levels.
House Democrats should forget the immense distraction of conducting yet another investigation of the insurrection on January 6.

Instead, they should be holding hearings into why the Biden Administration and the Justice Department are not prosecuting serious felonies committed by the former president and his Republican co-conspirators who sought to overthrow the election and the Constitution of the United States.

The country faces a stark choice between prosecuting the presumptive criminals, who committed their crimes in broad daylight, or accepting the normalization of impunity for political crimes at high levels, as the country rolls merrily along.

If America chooses the second path, what could possibly go wrong?

Where can Trump go to escape the law? The Bahamas?

Assuming he’s not arrested before he gets to Mar-a-Lago, once he is there, if he gets tipped off that the feds or the local police are getting ready to move in and arrest him, he can quickly jump on a plane to Nassau or another island, locations which are only a short private plane ride away.


Aaron Van Langevelde, an American hero in Michigan, and the inside rot of the anti-democratic (Republican) party

We have major challenges ahead in order to restore respect by all for our democratic processes and the rule of law, That will take time.

But for now, we can simply express our gratitude for the fact that Aaron Van Langevelde and a majority of the people have successfully defended American democracy against a grave fascist threat.

That should make this Thanksgiving one to remember, for the ages.
