Here we go again…threats of catastrophic death and destruction by the right.

“What kind of person can charge another person, in this case a former President of the United States, who got more votes than any sitting President in history, and leading candidate (by far!) for the Republican Party nomination, with a Crime, when it is known by all that NO Crime has been committed, & also known that potential death & destruction in such a false charge could be catastrophic for our Country? Why & who would do such a thing? Only a degenerate psychopath that truely hates the USA!“ Truth Social

Stand by gangs, Armageddon is coming and you can be part of it. Just send in the the end label from your ammunition boxes, along with $50 and get an official certificate for death and destruction…and a decoder ring.

A troubling trend for red state women.

Vague, draconian anti-abortion laws are pushing doctors out of some states. Why even risk the legal, financial and career risks on problem pregnancies, even with assurances of allowable “exceptions”. Someone complains and, at best, a doctor needs to hire an attorney. Who needs that aggravation? Or risk?

This issue is not going away. And, ironically, it is the anti-abortion movement that will keep it alive and well for 2024. Keep it up folks. It’s a real vote getter. IMO

Florida’s theater of the absurd.

“Rosa Parks showed courage. One day, she rode the bus. She was told to move to a different seat because of the color of her skin. She did not. She did what she believed was right.”

“Rosa Parks showed courage. One day, she rode the bus. She was told to move to a different seat. She did not. She did what she believed was right.”

“In 1955 Rosa Parks broke the law. In her city the law said African-Americans had to give up their seats on the bus if a White person wanted to sit down. She would not give up her seat. The police came and took her to jail.”

These are three versions submitted by a text book publisher for approval in Florida. The quotes are from the textbooks, the article is WAPO.

This is patently ridiculous and clearly a reaction to DeSantis’ war on history. The second quote makes the gentle reader wonder if she had bad breath or anything other than than she was Black and not good enough to sit up front. Is this a threat to the psyche of children in a civics class so egregious that they need to be protected?

To be fair, the choice has not been firmed up yet. But just the idea smacks of indoctrination by the right wing.

ignorance is still ignorance.

Is this Libertarian heaven?

People fending for themselves seems great…until it isn’t. Ok, this isn’t necessarily Ayn Rand paradise, but it is a rural area where everyone knows everyone else, works hard and mind their own business. No urban elites, or “rootless cosmopolitans” to poison the American rugged individualism. Everyone is armed. Including the mass murderer 6 years ago. Apparently, security costs more thieving tax money than people are willing to pay. So the cost is manifested in other ways.

De-Nazification again?
“On Friday, John Kirby, the spokesperson for the National Security Council, made a surprise announcement at a White House press briefing. U.S. intelligence, he said, had determined that the Kremlin was plotting to topple another European democracy. “Russian actors, some with current ties to Russian intelligence, are seeking to stage and use protests in Moldova as a basis to foment a manufactured insurrection against the Moldovan government,” Kirby declared.”

Same play, different stage. Create a fake separatist movement and attack later. Look on the map, Moldova is on the doorstep of NATO. It has no border with Russia. Russia cut gas to them and we have been keeping Moldova with enough to get through a fortunately mild winter. Georgia, Chechnya, Ukraine and now Moldova. Fool me once, twice, three, now four times…at some point we need to realize this is war on Europe from a delusional megalomaniac.

The uproar over government recommendations and Twitter pales in comparison.

“In the documents, Shah emerges less as Trump’s man-on-the-inside at Fox than as a bridge between the then-president’s world and the network, and a reliable translator of Trump’s base for Fox’s management.“

This is blatant censorship and control of the largest MSM empire by the government. And it ended in violence.

I would say “wake up, smell the coffee”, but that ship has sailed…and sunk. IMO
