Speaking of billionaires running for president, Ross Perot died.

Paraphrased justifications for apathy increasingly bandied about by people I know IRL: "Dems are really no better than GOP. They won't even impeach the most corrupt president in history. They will barely conduct oversight and let GOP'ers and the White House run rampant over subpoenas. They can't even have a unified approach to investigating a pedophile-enabler in the cabinet. It's just more of the same. Power protecting power."

There are like 4 dems in the federal government who really know how to stand up to the GOP. At this point I am convinced Trump is going to win re-election. Things have gotten worse since the "Blue Wave"; they have done nothing worthy of votes going forward.

It kind of cracks me up that the one original cabinet member that managed to mostly keep his head down and out of controversy is doofus Rick Perry.

Mostly it just depresses and enrages me, though.

And there's a decent chance Rick Perry doesn't even know he is a cabinet member.
