I've had to post this all too often.

If you don't have the time to watch it, I understand, but it IS the most powerful protest song of all time.
And more pertinent than ever.

To all the victims left behind...

Yes, I know it's long, but so very worth the time. Pause it when it shows the newspaper headline. It will explain everything.

Why Now? After all these years of existing with Roe v Wade

are so many governors emboldened to sign complete/almost complete abortion bans. I'm 67 years old. I have never seen the country so "openly" divided be issues.

McTurtle has a dire warning (promise) for America.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) warned in an interview Saturday that a national ban on abortion is “possible” if the Supreme Court guts Roe v. Wade as it’s expected to do — and federal lawmakers then pass a law prohibiting abortion across the country.

EVERY Democrat running for office should have ALL the ammunition they need to win. Unless 'Merica is just beyond hope.

Individuals may seek damages as a remedy when federal officers violate their rights.

This begs two questions: Are Supreme Justices federal officers? Can they be sued for violating the rights of women who seek abortions?

"According to the Court, “in the context of suits against Government officials, damages have long been awarded as appropriate relief.” And that has been true not only for state and local officials, but also federal officials, like those employed by the FBI. Moreover, the Court highlighted that damages are important because they are often the only remedy available. For example, for one of the plaintiffs, Muhammad Tanvir, who lost his job because of his placement on the No Fly List, it is damages or nothing. Finally, in response to the government’s argument that policy favors denying a damages remedy against government officials, Justice Thomas, just like Justice Story two centuries before him, emphasized that it is the job of Congress to engage in policy making: “[T]here are no constitutional reasons why we must do so in its stead.”

Does a processor care where the amps originate?

I am currently using a Denon X3500H as my main receiver and my Denon 3805 as a amp for the two fronts. I am utilizing a 5.2.2 room setup. I want to have 5.2.4 instead. If I purchase a Emotiva MC1, which is a 13.2 processor, can I use the two Denon recievers as the power amps for the Basx?

Are any "reputable" news agencies reporting on an upcoming food shortage?

Yeah, I can find all kinds of doomsday crap on the interwebs, but I really want to know if there is any need to stock up on food. I am not prone to "chickenlittle" syndrome, but I figure if there is a problem, my friends here will know the scoop.

We were robbed this morning.

And not metaphorically. Someone broke into our home this morning at 4:45am and quickly stole almost $1000 and several items including the bicycle that I had bought wifey for Christmas.
The good news is that no one got hurt. Wifey and I were awakened by our heroine doggo Zoey. At that point, the intruder exited our home.
The reason I bring this up is as a cautionary tale. We have been living here in this home for 33 years with no issues, in a good neighborhood and great neighbors. Yet, here we are. I was not prepared for a break in.
If you can, do everything you can to secure your home and those you love.
That is all.

The more "crazy" that the repugs throw against the wall

ie: CRT, wokeness, sexual math, grooming...etc the more the Democrats have to scramble to deflect back to the truth.
They (repugs) are not doing this by accident folks. It is a tried and true method of getting us away from taking about the real problems in America. It's just that they are getting desperate and are making up more and more crazy shit in an attempt to make SOMETHING stick.
I just hope our candidates stick to the facts. We (Democrats) have enough ammunition to sink these bastards in November. USE IT!!
