Jack — great minds think alike…I read Caitlin’s piece and, as I was sharing it onto my Facebook timeline, I started flowing and getting carried away as I am prone to do and wrote the following (this is just the beginning):

“This article makes me cry. Because it feels all too true.

It feels too true because I’ve felt this way about the Democratic Party since the 1990s. That they are the good cop to the Republican bad cop in a corrupt police department. In such a situation, I’m not going to be telling myself and telling my friends and family that, well, at least the good cop isn’t the bad cop so we should support him. No, I’m going to say that the good cop is just as much a part of the Systemic problem as the bad cop.

He’s still dragging your ass to jail for violating a victimless crime. Still denying you and yours a chance to have health care that’s affordable, that’s not going to bankrupt you or kill you because you can’t afford it.”
