What happened to us … ???

I don’t expect perfection.
But I do expect something.

As I watch the continuous attacks upon Democracy in the US and see VERY LITTLE pushback from THE PEOPLE, I really wonder
WHAT THE HELL is going on?
Yesterday the Republican Governor of Texas enacted Voting Legislation in Texas that deliberately and directly inhibits Fundamental Voting Rights for certain American minorities whom he figures will Vote against him.
In other words, he’s ‘fixing the Vote’ in his favor for the next Election.
In the 60’s this kind of vile behavior would have resulted in a mass march on the Texas capital.
This kind of behavior from the corrupted Republican Party has been going on in the US for a some time now. And nary a squeak from The People.
Let me show what would have happened in the 60’s:

The 60’s:

  1. I don’t understand it either. We were the “marching” generation. Now? it’s the “I’m too busy, don’t bother me” generation. I somehow doubt any good will come of this.

    1. I’m scratching my head. I would figure the College kids would at least be doing something. I see nothing. They sure go to the football games though. ??
