Garland needs to go

A President replacing the AG is not all that uncommon and can be done without implying the executive branch is using the DOJ as it's police force. it's been done. Garland has to go period.

Heard some disturbing things on Hartman's program this week

and on DU for awhile now and amongst like minded folks I know. Thom did a rant about getting physically involved in the Democratic party using Bannon pushing this on the other side. Not the first time he's ranted about this. Agree with him totally. He immediately started taking calls from those who have had it with the inner workings of the DNC top to bottom. I agree with him, if you don't like it fix it. I agree with them, there's a ton of house cleaning to be done across the board.

But right now, at this moment, and I wish Thom would've spoke more about it, the Democratic party needs to be unified. All of us. We can't be infighting with what's at stake in less than 8 months.

If we can't at least retain what we have in Nov its over folks. i heard people on his show saying they wouldn't vote because the party is corrupt. Have seen it here. Guess what, we lose in Nov you won't have a party to worry about and you will never again have a vote period.

Screw 2024, right now we need to win 2022 period. Then we can talk about party reform. If we lose in Nov, truly we are screwed from that point on. I honestly believe that

Oh my goodness, Power of the Dog on Netflix

Haven't seen a new movie this deceptively delicious in a long, long time lol. Oh my goodness

Putin may not be as stupid as people think

IMO This invasion is way more than Russian nationalism and Putins philosophy that Ukraine is a part of Russia no matter what. Its way more than that. Its a further effort to destabilize democracies in not only Europe but here also. Eastern European democracies are as tentative as our own. Most of them elected their own version of Trump in the last 4 or 6 years. Those that got elected were driven by nationalism after the Arab spring and especially after the geocide in Syria, driving huge populations of refugees into European countries. The same philosophy is at play here. Putin doesn't care how many people die, hes betting odds on people that give a shit, that will take refugees. He's played the racism for refugees from the middle east, now he's driving a refugee crisis into countries that are prepped with nationalist leaders, but now building on the ancient divides of central Europe. How long do you think Poland, Romania, Hungary, 2 out of three have a nationalist leader, are going to tolerate Ukrainian refugees.? These are the complexities of this. Is Zelenski going to be forced to succumb to Putins demands 6 months from now because the border countries are going to be faced with internal turmoil from their right wing parties over refugees? Putins strategy may be that. Of course he doesn't care how many die to get there, but it is his ultimate goal, and the goal of fascists worldwide. We are and have been in world war. This could be the first true blood drawn for freedom.

Ukrainian Sand Art

I saw this right after the Orange Revolution. To this day it brings tears to my eyes. Its a story of her great grandparents, of the heart of the Ukrainian people. Its not only great art, it's a story of grief and the promise of love. Its a story in all of us if we just look. Freedom owes so much to the sacrifices of the Ukrainian people over the last 100 years. 20 million, maybe more.



CNBC: Discussion of NATO leaders including Biden to be meeting soon

in Brussels. If it comes to fruition this could be some very important signaling.

40 years later and nothing has changed

I feel things are even worse. As a diehard RUSH fan since the age of 12 in 1974 this song rings as, if not more, true for these times as the times 40 years ago when it was released. Tom Sawyer is fine, but this was the most important song on that album IMHO. Lyrics below the video.

RUSH- Witch Hunt (Part III of Fear)




The night is black
Without a moon
The air is thick and still
The vigilantes gather on
The lonely torchlit hill

Features distorted in the flickering light
Faces are twisted and grotesque
Silent and stern in the sweltering night
Mob moves like demons possesed
Quiet in conscience, calm in their right
Confident their ways are best

The righteous rise
With burning eyes
Of hatred and ill-will
Madmen fed on fear and lies
To beat and burn and kill

They say there are strangers who threaten us
Our immigrants and infidels
They say there is strangeness, too dangerous
In our theatres and bookstore shelves
Those who know what's best for us
Must rise and save us from ourselves

Quick to judge
Quick to anger
Slow to understand
Ignorance and prejudice
And fear, walk hand in hand

If we don't get out the vote in November the world loses

Ukraine just amped up the 2022 election 10 fold. IMO this is a pivotal time in modern history akin to the world wars of the 20th century. Democracies worldwide have been failing since this asshole took power. The US is now considered a failing democracy. I believe the grand plan is for putrid to keep the Ukraine situation in a quagmire for the next 6 to 8 months. If the reputrids take at a minimum the house and possibly the Senate, it's over. Seriously, it's over, he wins. Think about it, whats to stop the putrid faction after that. They'll have 2 years to prep this country, stop fighting putrid and more so enabling him, expand cover for oligarchs worldwide, prosecute here beyond the scope of law and continue the destruction of democracy worldwide either politiacally or with their strongman.

I seriously think if we cant get this fucker out of power in Russia in the next 6 months we are fucked. If all of us don't show up to piss on the off cycle polls and make a difference we are fucked. theres no coming back from this. WE wont have a USA or NATO to supply us arms when our dumbasses want a refund. VOTE VOTE VOTE, get others to VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!!!!!!
