How much more insane can they get? The elected governor of Texas, no more crazy than any of them, has acted swiftly and with courage in response to clear evidence of an existential threat:
Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday asked the State Guard to monitor a U.S. military training exercise dubbed "Jade Helm 15" amid Internet-fueled suspicions that the war simulation is really a hostile military takeover. The request comes a day after more than 200 people packed a meeting in rural Bastrop County and questioned a U.S. Army commander about whether the government was planning to confiscate guns or implement martial law...Can we, finally and forever, stop with the "both sides do it" bullshit? Today's R party is insane. There's no equivalent to this embarrassing idiocy on the left. It's beyond shameful, beyond unbelievable. It's the living, breathing, frothing-at-the-mouth proof that one party, the party currently in control of Congress and trying like hell to get the White House, is ruled by people wholly detached from reality. It should make anyone question anything said by anyone in that party about any subject or person. Period.
The United States of America, once a leader in thought, innovation, science, education, invention; on its way to becoming a laughing stock at best and a disaster in fact. And there are enough of these people effectively to thwart the best efforts of the one remaining half-way sane party to prevent it.
It's appalling. It really, really is. On what basis can one hold onto hope?
