It’s no game

“What does “I’m rubber you’re glue” mean? It’s a response to an insult, usually only used by children. It means the insult said by the first child doesn’t apply to the person being insulted, but the person who said it in the first place. You look ugly. I’m rubber youre glue.”

There are lies and alternative realities that have been pursued for personal gain – trump, Cruz, Hawley. If this were a child’s playground, this would be vaguely amusing. In the Senate of the United States and by POTUS, this is dangerous and unacceptable. The rhetoric has reached the point where I fear the “nuclear button” is an option in a reality game. There is no justification. Democrats – no, Americans – should be running “hair on fire” to stop these madmen. trump, hawley and cruz have met the definitions:

trai·tor/ˈtrādər/ Learn to pronounce nounnoun: traitor; plural noun: traitors

  1. a person who betrays a friend, country, principle, etc.

trea·son/ˈtrēzən/ Learn to pronounce nounnoun: treason; noun: high treason; plural noun: high treasons

  1. the crime of betraying one’s country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government.

We cannot end the rebellion. But we can cut off its head. It will be a start. The rabble can go somewhere and start another country. But there seems to be nowhere they will be welcome. And there are those who would “take the law into their own hands.” That’s not how it works in a democracy. We waited four years for this vote. It’s your turn to wait.
