Can you numbskulls spend 1/8—that’s all I’m asking; just 1/8—of the amount of energy you expend on friggin’ signage on actually trying to do something of value for the American people?

And no—protecting the “sanctity of marriage,” gutting social programs, filling the coffers of corporate cronies through legislation that pretends to benefit the American people, leading us to war on false pretenses, threatening women’s autonomy, fixing elections, outing covert CIA operatives, and decorating the Oval Office with fancy rugs don’t count.
