I've been watching Handmaid's Tale with my daughter the last few months and now we're waiting for season 3 ... but ... I have to say, watching HMT and seeing what's been going on in the U.S. these last four years has not filled me with a lot of hope. Now that the nutjob VP is announcing Space Force Guardians as their troop names, it just brought back memories of HMT all over again. I'm sure it's coincidence, but dang.
Yeah... when you see the clowns with their guns at state capitals and at the homes of county health officials... it almost makes it feel like HMT isn't THAT far fetched. Pence is scary. He is as crazy as Trump, possibly worse, and yet he is a practiced politician. A Pence presidency could easily surpass the Trump presidency in damage caused to our democracy.
