It all started with people somehow being so fucking stupid that they thought fucking *rump would be a good idea for president. People have just gotten exponentially more nasty, vapid, and stupid since 2016. I really believe that. I think covid made it worse, but I really and truly believe that motherf*cker ruined everything. Nice job, morons that voted for him. Life in general has just gotten so much more shitty. For everyone. I suppose, however, that none of this would have happened if our educational system wasn't a tragic joke. Not blaming teachers. Republicans did this. They LOVE their uneducated people. They don't try to hide it. It's the idiots that vote for them. They are well aware.
