If it’s unhinged to suggest that the American government has failed its people in a criminal fashion and in doing so created a scenario designed to radicalize even some of the most apolitical, apathetic people in the country, and that our government will not do anything until we effectively pressure it to, then I guess I’m unhinged. Tell that to the parents who previously never paid attention to politics before that are now unable to put food on the table for their kids. You think the tens of millions of people about to lose their homes are going to just sit tight and wait for Joe Biden and his vapid platitudes to take power? Sure some will, but I can guarantee a lot of them won’t. I think I’m a little more in touch with the growing sense of anger and frustration then the Sunday talk show hosts you want me to listen to are, Chris. You might be one of the most smug, condescending people I have ever had the misfortune of encountering, but at least you’re helping me pay my bills every time you comment. So thanks again!
