SNL has been give fodder on a silver plate.

The smiling creepy Katie and nodding squinting head bobbing Mike.

Justice delayed is justice denied.

Can you imagine if the 100,000 people who voted “uncommitted” along with thousands of others of us and out networks sent the Supreme Court a post card with that message. It would surely make the 6 o’clock news

On edit: I’ve taken a random envelope, sealed it empty. Addressed it to the Supreme Court, and wrote “justice delayed is justice denied” will stamp it with a first class stamp. Easy peasy.

Thanks to Lonestarblure for the address:

Why do the talking heads ( yes, you Ari Meber) and their guests insist on using GOP framing

when talking about Alabama supremes declaration that frozen embryos are children?
Zygots become embryos when they implant into the wall of the uterus. Not until then.

Media talking heads are not smart. They carry the water of GOP messaging. Disgusting

Are we in an age of National Dysphoria?


Sir John Bagot Glubb, British lieutenant general, estimated that the average length of greatness for a regime, people or nation is 250 years. America is 248 years old.

For Glubb, socially created polities rise and fall in these stages. First, an age of pioneers. Then an age of conquests. Then commercial success. Then affluence. Then an age of intellect and finally, an age of decadence.

Decadence is marked by defensiveness, pessimism, materialism, frivolity, an influx of foreigners, a welfare state and weakening of religion. Decadence results from too long a period of wealth and power, selfishness, love of money and loss of a sense of duty.

I have a question about CNN giving 1.5 h s of free airtime to Haley last night.

It was pitched as a town hall. So my question is, if a network gives a candidate free air time under the guise of “town hall,” and does not fact check immediately after, does that then become an “in kind” contribution to the candidate and reportable under federal election laws?

Podcast "Who Killed JFK?" I am spellbound

by the narrative and the presentation of Rob Reiner and Soladad O Brien.

Petty little men, do petty little things...

That is the simple message I just sent to the interim Speaker Patrick.
I keep on hand, pre stamped post cards and often whip one off to Congress critters.
A post card will get through to the office. Messages mailed in an envelope get held up because they require special scanning for harmful substances.
