To be a media skeptic these days is to be a person with common sense, but you need to be skeptical across the board.
Yesterday, Sunday, my wife and I drove over to Northwest River Park to go for a walk. Coming and going we passed by Hickory Ridge Farm which was having a seasonal pumpkin event. The parking lot was overflowing and the grounds were packed with families enjoying an outing. The hay rides were literally stuffed with people. Several hundred people – at least – were in attendance. A very large percentage of the people in this crowd were not wearing masks and there was zero sign of social distancing. This, IMHO, is a manifestation of the pernicious influence of Republican wishful thinking about the pandemic. It would only take a few people with the virus to turn a gathering like this into a super spreader event with dire consequences for everyone in the community. It is no wonder that the pandemic is back with a vengeance. Wishful thinking or social distancing fatigue will not make it stop.
Building a political movement on Birtherism, race-baiting, White Supremacy and voter suppression comes with a price. The Democrats have always struggled with turnout and supporter apathy. This year, not so much. I am put in mind of Admiral Yamamoto’s remark after Pearl Harbor . . . “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.” So, Thanks Trump!
Schiff lied when he claimed the intelligence community dismissed Hunter Biden’s laptop as Russian disinformation.
Democrats must now confront the truth that their candidate is deeply corrupt and has abused the power of his office for years.
Because it may be of some interest as a curiosity, I share a message from the Qanon forum below. It was written by Q himself, appeared Sunday morning , and is characteristic of Q’s messaging style.Continue reading “A Q Sample”
Next-President Biden has promised to say more about the future of the Supreme Court before November 3. In this essay, the author puts the question into historical context and offers some alternatives.
My oh my. How did he do that? Easy peasy. He issued an EO that made it marginally more difficult for developers to create “low income housing” in those lovely suburbs. As he pleaded with these suburban women he went on to add that he won 52% of women in 2016. Whoops. That would be 52% of white women. Counting ALL women he was down by about 15 points.
No race-baiting by the Birther-in-chief here. Move along. Move along.
The argument could be made:
- Social media platforms Facebook and Twitter have actively suppressed the Joe Biden e-mail story.
- Tidewater Forum is a social media platform.
- Therefore, Tidewater Forum should suppress the story.
If the industry leaders have good reason to apply censorship in this instance, shouldn’t venues like this one do the same?
No doubt he’s a Russian too.
