The difference is that the Yanks got the religious nutters, Oz got the political dissenters; both levened with a fair number of criminals

Why do you think we put them all in a boat and sent them across the Atlantic all those years ago?

You did it again for Australia and again...

Many of the world's current problems stem from Victorian era exports.

And therein lies a pretty clear yet depressing truism. Idiots seem to inevitably begat more idiots. I fully expect the Trumpist Q-anoniots to spawn yet more stupid and paranoid loons.

That’s a high bar, but with good old Yankee ingenuity... Oh. Wait.

As a Republican, I’ve always thought that Trump’s main agenda was to destroy the Republican Party. He lost the House, he lost the Senate, he lost the White House. Now he’s destroying any Republican gains in the state governors.
His final act will be to kill off (literally) anyone who would vote Republican.
I’m going to wait and see what tomorrow, March 4, brings about. If it’s a Millerite failure, maybe I’ll stay. If it’s what all the handwringers on CNN are predicting, I’ll be switching my registration.
Bubba Clinton made me resign in disgust as a Democrat.
Are the Whigs taking members? I don’t know how to use a goose quill pen.
