On this Veterans Day I urge you

To watch "All Quiet On The Western Front". I have no idea if the current remake is any good or not but the original is the most powerful movie you'll likely ever watch.

Lock Her Up - Eric Swallwell Ad. Powerful

The independent state legislature doctrine could reverse 200 years of progress and take power away..

In a case to be heard in the coming months, the U.S. Supreme Court could decide that state legislatures have control over congressional elections, including the ability to draw voting districts for partisan political advantage, unconstrained by state law or state constitutions.

At issue is a legal theory called the “independent state legislature doctrine,” which is posed through the court’s consideration of a dispute over gerrymandered North Carolina congressional districts. In early 2022, North Carolina state courts found the legislature violated the state constitution when it drew gerrymandered congressional districts favoring Republicans. The legislature has claimed that the U.S. Constitution gives it authority, unfettered by state courts’ interpretation of the state constitution or laws, to regulate congressional elections, and is asking the Supreme Court to agree.

Excellent article if extremely chilling. Read and then get on the phone/email/whatever to spread the word. There HAS to be a way to stop these repuglican asshats ..... HAS to be!!! We are seeing our democracy wither and die before our very eyes. People need to be more upset imo.

An infuriatingly humorous guide to the subject matter.

Yes, it's from Cracked. Yes, it's a humor site also but man, these people are savage about exposing the rwnj's and their agenda. This is their take on the Don't say gay bills etc. Cracked is a very progressive site that uses humor as their swords to prick the pricks hehe.


There can be no "healing" ....

When the one who is sick refuses to acknowledge their condition. If you refuse to admit you have cancer and will not treat it, it WILL kill you. We have a very serious problem in this country and if we try to gloss over that fact we are in effect refusing treatment.
There can be no "unity" when one side refuses to concede anything and considers your side to be morally wrong and worthy of distain and worse.

No, I have no answers to this but I know in my heart that unless we do SOMETHING our country as a representative democracy is finished. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but sooner than many of us want to admit. There is a sickness stalking our land and the sooner we confront that fact the easier it will be to remove it.

When the pardons coming raining down

I don't know about you but I fully expect a flurry of pardons in the coming days. What I wonder about is .... are the various states, besides New York, going to charge any of these criminals? I'm mostly thinking of the chump in chief himself and his crime family along with his enablers. But also these traitorous insurrectionists?

Is there any way to forestall these before they are issued?

While we're at it, is there a way to "take back" or rescind these laughable Presidential Medals of Freedom he's been giving out to whoever pays him enough? Limbaugh and Nunes especially?

Tired man....just so tired

I watched my loving sweet caring mother turn into a raging hate filled person I didn't know anymore after her last marriage and subsequent fox filled misinformation filled last 10 years of her life.

I've said for years now that I would NOT turn out like that.

I was standing on the porch a few minutes ago just drinking coffee watching the sun rise. Its early and my thoughts just flitted from one thought to another when it hit me. I HAVE turned out like that. I am filled with as much hate and rage and bitterness as my mother ended up being filled with. I'm ....... well, tears came to me with this realization but I don't think there's anything that can change it. I hate what I've become.

The source of my rage and hate came from the same place my mothers did too. fox and rush and hannity et al. (no, I will NOT capitalize those names!) Only difference is her animosity was from agreement with them and mine..... mine is for what they have done to us as a nation and as individuals.

They are good at what they do .... rush and hannity and carlson and fox and trump. They exist and profit from and because of lies and hate.

I'm very sad this morning to come to grips that they won, even with me. I am tired man, just so freaking tired.

Far-Right Pastor: Trump Fast-Tracked Firing Squad Execution Rule Because Some Traitors Are Going to

Far Right Pastor: Trump Fast-Tracked Firing Squad Execution Rule Because Some Traitors Are Going to Get Shot

A far-right pastor and conspiracy theorist who was once banned from YouTube for hate speech—and who said the impeachment of the 45th president was a “Jew coup”—had some thoughts about why it might be that the Trump administration was moving to make firing squad executions a thing again in a lame-duck session. Rick Wiles believes it’s because “they plan to shoot some people.” Who are those people? Simply put, Donald Trump’s opponents.

Imagine that.

I'm sorry but I think Joes wrong on this....

WASHINGTON — President-elect Joe Biden has privately told advisers that he doesn't want his presidency to be consumed by investigations of his predecessor, according to five people familiar with the discussions, despite pressure from some Democrats who want inquiries into President Donald Trump, his policies and members of his administration.

Biden has raised concerns that investigations would further divide a country he is trying to unite and risk making every day of his presidency about Trump, said the sources, who spoke on background to offer details of private conversations.

They said he has specifically told advisers that he is wary of federal tax investigations of Trump or of challenging any orders Trump may issue granting immunity to members of his staff before he leaves office. One adviser said Biden has made it clear that he "just wants to move on."

Short article, worth reading.

Anyway..... I think this is wrong. But then, I never agree 100% with ...well.... lol, just about anyone. Pay particular attention to the sentence "Biden has raised concerns that investigations would further divide a country he is trying to unite ..." Well, in my opinion trying to "unite" us is a lost cause. The republican leadership has shown absolutely NO inclination for unity. On the contrary they seem to respect nothing but raw power. Their "base" is lost to us period. WE as a Nation face a grave threat in the rwnj's. Do you really think Joe can talk the Proud Boys and their ilk into unity? How about even just the rank and file republican voters? THEY just elected Qanon supporters for christs sake! Indeed, we'll have 2 minimum of these people making our laws! Can YOU unite with people like that? Can YOU unite with Proud Boys? Can YOU unite with Boogaloo supporters? The time for rose colored glasses is gone. We're fighting for the very idea of Democracy now. We're fighting for the Constitution now. Do we have the courage? The ones who want to do away with democracy and the Constitution sure do.
