Lying In Their Beds
We cats are having a hard time getting all worked up about voters in Trumpland who are about to be seriously screwed by the vulgarian they looked at last fall and thought, "Yeah, that's my President."
Senior centers, after-school programs, Meals on Wheels, and more will vanish in red states like Oklahoma if the heartless Republicans in the White House and on Capitol Hill get their way. Oh, well! Just for the record, we Democrats didn't vote for all that. We Democrats voted to let red-staters keep their programs and services, because we believe in providing for people and lifting all boats.
You know what the icing on the cake would be? If Oklahoma gets rocked by a serious earthquake — thanks to fracking; there's nothing more important than "energy independence," you know — and all the Trump voters there lose their homes. Then who will help them?
We're not sure what social services will be left after the Trump crowd in DC gets finished with ravaging the country. But we do know one thing: If those poor, stricken folks from Oklahoma can get themselves to Gander, Newfoundland, they'll be well taken care of. We cats HISS.
