The relief the GOP didn’t destroy the economy, doesn’t match the worry we felt

I’m just consuming science fiction content today while playing games on my phone.
I don’t want to think or write or move. Yet here I am. Writing. My thought last night was what I said on the Nicole Sandler show while talking about our mutual friend the late great Joel Silberman

Kirk, Joel Silberman and Spocko in A Piece of the Action

There is good news in the world. US job numbers are great. The Economy was not destroyed by GOP, THIS TIME.
YET…. As Mrs. Spocko said, the relief that we feel that the GOP didn’t destroy the American and WORLD economy, doesn’t match the worry & anxiety that we have been feeling.

Celebrating the win is important. But also infuriating when we shouldn’t have been here. ALSO, I get Biden talking about “My friends across the aisle” since his plan worked. But I really want those assholes on the right who brought us here to be stopped. I’d like them to be punished, but that’s not Biden. So let’s look at how to punish them in their role in the insurrection.

Anger is energy. Action is energizing. And Depression is real

I TOTALLy understand why the right stokes anger. It provides energy for them. I’ve used it in the past to fuel my action against RW media. Taking action can be energizing. And when it looks like all the anger you are feel and the action you are taking isn’t leading to stopping the right, NOR to getting justice for their horrific actions, the depression can get overwhelming.

The agents of destruction are still out there. They are still powerfully. They are still making money and getting resources and driving their grievance/ victim narrative. I realized I feel I am one of the people who believe it’s my duty to stop them and to help others to stop them, especially because I HAVE HAD SUCCESS in the past fighting them financially. But right now I see the fight against RW media, Fascists & their promoters requires having a plan to show, and then stop, their use of threats of violence to get what they want.

I saw on Chris Hayes someone said Biden won’t gloat or do a victory lap after winning the Debt Ceiling crisis created by the GOP. Sure, that’s an appropriate solution, if you are A Responsible Adult like Biden.
BUT I want CELEBRATE THE FEELING of Defeating them. BIDEN got them to stop! Hurray!

As I said, it would be best if people on the right realized they are wrong and changed. But what if they don’t? What do you do with the ones who know what they are doing is wrong and they keep hurting us? We need to figure out the ways that they get it. Punishments come in many forms. Personally, I don’t want them to profit. But it’s oly one reason they keep coming. I’m all for making Fascism less profitable, but it’s not the only thing.

The Department of Justice has been sending “the boots” to prison. Elmer Rhodes just got 18 years in prison for seditious conspiracy.

Now it’s time to send “The Suits” to prison. And then we celebrate.
