Steven Bannon and Donald Trump (henceforth “Stumpy”) are threatening a takeover of the US government.  This has gone from being a paranoid tin foil hat theory to something which is gaining wider credence.

As such, we’ve downgraded our hopes from “don’t take away healthcare” and “don’t squander a bunch of money on the wall” and “don’t take away a bunch of hard won rights” to a much different set of hopes at least an order of magnitude more important.  In priority order:

  1. don’t take over the US government.
  2. don’t tank the planet’s economy so badly that it is impossible to rebuild

Always before the dems have been able to come in and clean up whatever mess the GOP has left.  Not so sure this time.
