The Word for America in 2018 is Shit!
by Mike Meyer
What else can you say when two major climate reports come out in the same year both telling us we are totally screwed? The point is that we screwed around for twenty years and did nothing to stop the causes of the increasing temperature — Shit!
When you realize that thirty plus percent of the US voters support an idiot and criminal with a major personality disorder who wouldn’t recognize the truth if it walked up and bit him on the ass, the only thing you can say is — Shit!
After two years of threats, denials, accusation, fake news, the special prosecutor indicted a variety of fringe Trump campaign people plus Russian intelligence support people and then starts in on the central campaign and legal staff and they all plead guilty and go off to jail but the unnamed individual in all the cases still thinks he is president, what else can you say but — Shit!
The stock market is booming but the vast majority of people still can’t handle an unexpected $400 bill the whole economy and all the reports have gone to — Shit!
A white nationalist, ultimately convicted of murder after driving into a peaceful protest crowd and killing a young woman, is considered “good people” and equal to the protestors by the same dude still in the White House after his staff have started going to jail, what else can you say but — Shit!
The political party that has worked for years to destroy democratic elections in the country is now identified as Party 1 in criminal cases for the Trump folks who conspired with the Russian government to distort the 2016 election can only be described as — Shit!
A three hour senate interrogation of the head of Google, one of the most powerful tech corporations who have plundered people personal information for years, focuses on why a Google search for the word ‘idiot’ lists Donald J, Trump for the first few pages, the only thing you can say is — Correct! Shit!
The US Army starts deploying on the Mexican border in fear of some frightened families driven from the Central American homes by US supported fascists and no one understands why this is happening except a bunch of racist assholes and the idiot, proven by Google, sitting in the White House. That means that everything the America was founded on is now — Shit!
Life expectancy of what was once the American middle class is going down for the first time since 1915 and the Congress, controlled by assholes and complicit Party 1, wants to destroy Social Security and Medicare to ensure that the middle class and everyone else dies faster — Shit!
The list can go on for many more pages — Shit!
So there is only one word for 2018 in America — Shit!
