Watergate was only the beginning of what the GOP continues to do to our Govt.

So I have been watching Gaslit (highly recommend) and got to thinking who the players were and
If they had ALL been taken to the woodshed and served REAL hard time if we would be in this postTFG Hot mess today?

If you want to trail down memory lane here is a good refresher of the players involved.

And Gaslit really IS a good show.

So NOW can we openly talk about rebalancing the SCOTUS?

If this abortion law doesn’t trigger it then nothing will.

Beverly Powell announces she's withdrawing from the District 10 Senate race, April 6, 2022.


Crooked GOP in Texas redrew the maps and failed us ALL, again.


Texas State Sen. Beverly Powell (D-Fort Worth, District 10) is suspending her reelection campaign saying the race is unwinnable for a Democrat under redrawn district maps approved by the Republican-led state legislature last fall.

Powell, who ran unopposed in the March 2022 Democratic Primary, said in a statement Wednesday she would be pulling her name off the November ballot. Republican Phil King, who defeated challenger Warren Norred in the primary, will be the only Republican or Democrat on the ballot for State Senate District 10 in November.

800 million people live on less than 1200 calories a day now. Russia has stopped shipping out

It’s wheat for export since the conflict started just weeks ago.



“The situation is in many ways bordering on catastrophic, and without substantial and immediate assistance, it will get worse,” said Eric Muñoz, senior policy advisor for agriculture at Oxfam, the Nairobi-based charity. “There’s no better wake-up call than the current moment, with sky-high food prices and skyrocketing hunger, to have a serious conversation about rethinking global food systems.”

⅓ of current world wheat supplies comes from Ukraine and Russia.
It’s planting season in Ukraine this week so their contribution will be nil. American farmers have had to contend with extreme droughts and even if they could plant more, fertilizer and gasoline are very expensive.
It’s not beyond reason to say that when this wheat is gone (90 days) as Unami of hunger/famine is coming.

Going to see Beto speak tomorrow in Weatherford.


It starts at 11:30 at Chandon Gardens if anybody out there is curious.

He is a very inspirational speaker. I have heard him several times.

Always wanted to go.... Just saw this and thought I would share for real estate geeks.

Home to both Georgia O’Keefe and Microsoft Co-founder, Paul Allen, and bearing a gift of the Dalai Lama, this exquisite estate is the essence of Southwestern graciousness. The Main House perfectly represents 1930’s Traditional Pueblo style architecture and elegance with 6 bedrooms, inviting gathering spaces and wide portals opening onto lush lawns. The main floor hosts formal living and dining rooms, the library and game rooms, a professional kitchen and a breakfast solarium.

It doesn’t say much of anything about it’s famous gardens.

An Old Village Voice article you gotta read about Bill Barr will leave a nasty taste in your mouth.

Bill Barr: The “Cover-Up General”
“At the center of the criticism is the chief artic­ulator of Bush’s imperial presidency,” we reported in 1992, “the man who wrote the legal rationale for the Gulf War, the Panama invasion, and the officially sanctioned kidnapping of foreign nationals abroad.”

Barrs influence on law in our country cannot be understated. Reading this again

What a Bastard.

Just letting my imagination run wild. You think Putin would ever take out TFG if He

started blabbing about Putin’s influencing our elections..? Money Laundering tips?
If he was going to spill the beans, tell all the secrets he learned from Putin?
Is TFG a threat to Putin? Think TFG ever lies awake worried about it?
