It definitely seems as though this is the nadir of the year. All the wealthy liberals are preparing for Burning Man where they hope to do anonymous butt stuff with some random Plebe. Meanwhile, this could be the calm before the storm for everyone else.
A lot of “thought leaders” are so tuned out at the moment that when they finally jack back into the world in early September that the various crisis we are dealing with at the moment will lurch forward. And that doesn’t even begin to address the issue of the 2022 midterms.
If Republicans gain power again, we are all very, very fucked. It’s going to get really dark really quick. Remember, there is always a chance that Trump might demand to be Speaker of the House, especially if you think about how there’s at least a chance that he might face an indictment. (I find this very dubious, however.)
What will become clear in January 2023 if Republicans gain control of the House is how quickly they will move to impeach both Biden and Harris just for existing. And, what’s more, as I’ve written before, they might get so excited that they impeach Biden accidently on purpose. At least the first time. There is a lot of bent up rage within the fascist MAGA Republicans to get revenge on Democrats about impeachment and, as such, Biden and Harris will be impeached simply out of momentum.
So, as I keep saying, I suggest you enjoy these last few days of living in a semi-functioning democracy (anocracy.) America remains a nation on edge and there’s a good chance that things will grow very, very bumpy a lot sooner than you might think.
