For over four years I've been outraged at this administration. Now I'm beyond outrage.
I have grown weary of this president whose most notable characterisics are incompetence, greed, and dishonesty, and I have grown weary of the unthinking, power-starved sycophants with whom he surrounds himself.
Hasn't America and the rest of the world suffered enough?
