A lot of conspiracy theories here tonight

I just watched 15 minutes of FOX and, while they weren’t involved, they couldn’t be happier or more relieved. They hate to be on the defensive and making absolute asses of themselves by distracting with cheeseburger emojis.
Now, they have a real story to use as an angry distraction, and nothing even happened about Trump after all. In just a few minutes I heard: this is why we need a wall; this is why we need Muslim surveillance; NYC liberals have dismantled their anti-terrorism tools; hate; fear; and who was President when this guy came here in 2010.
Guarantee you there are high-fives and a sense of relief in the White House tonight.

A serious concern about current events

I watched Hannity for about 5 minutes saying that this travesty of justice was final proof that there are two standards of justice, with Democrats and liberals getting away with everything. I just can't figure out why that is when they have the House, the Senate, the White House, the Justice Department and their own TV network.
Let's hope that we can end his reign - whether it's in months or at the end of his term - without him killing us all out of spite, hubris and ignorance.

Gun Policy - write your Congressman !

It doesn't take more than 2-3 minutes to go to your Congressman's web site and send an email.
If you don't have that much time to spare, cut and paste the message I just sent to my Rep and two Senators:

Reports are that the victims in Las Vegas, by the hundreds, were running AWAY from the gunshots. Would the GOP gun silencer bill have helped the situation, or led to dozens or hundreds of more deaths. The NRA is a front for the gun and ammo lobby, and has blood on their hands. US= 30,000 plus gun deaths a year; England = about 50.
We the people demand sensible gun laws, and from now on that issue will greatly determine my vote and support for candidates at all levels of government.


I also sent it to Rep Jeff Duncan, who doesn't represent me, but is one of the principal authors of this atrocious bill which apparently thinks that it is a horrible affront to our liberty to be told to use a pair of earplugs instead of being able to buy a silencer.

So Trump is a racist?

How could we NAZI that coming?

Is it a sin to tell a trump?

I'm sure SC's two Senators have my emails going straight to their spam folders by now. But since our spineless Governor (he was the first statewide-elected official in the US to endorse Trump when he was Lt Gov) wrote an op-ed endorsing the Senate bill, I emailed him today and told a trump: I claimed I usually voted Republican, but if the GOP healthcare passes my wife and I have pledged to vote straight Democrat in 2018 (had I said 'straight Democratic' it would have given me away.)
My immediate reply from him was that he would give serious consideration to my "specific request or suggestion."
I hate to be a trumper; hope it doesn't keep me from going to heaven.

Carl Sagan's (unfortunate) accurate prediction

In a 1995 Carl Sagan wrote a book titled "The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark."

Did he have a time machine or was he just that smart?

“Science is more than a body of knowledge; it is a way of thinking. I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or grandchildren’s time—when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness.”



Trump's tweeting

This is from a few hours ago on Trump's twitter page:

Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump 2h2 hours ago

The Fake News Media hates when I use what has turned out to be my very powerful Social Media - over 100 million people! I can go around them.


A glance at the top of the page shows 32.4 million followers, not a million. Does this mean that Trump's tweets are Fake News? Sad.

Even Google knows

I was looking up an antibiotic my daughter was prescribed.
I typed into Google: definition of t

and guess what immediately fillled in?
"Definition of treason"

Wonder how many people looked that up tonight?

Carl Sagan's accurate prediction of the future

In a 1995 book, Carl Sagan wrote:

Edited for citation: the book was "The Demon-haunted world: Science as a Candle in the Dark" written in 1995.

I just realized something....

My avatar could be mistaken for a Trump support !
I promise you it ain't, but he is correct about one thing: voter suppression and intimidation is a very real problem in this country.
Dare I say it is bigly a problem?
