Can Somebody Post A Picture Of The Gallows Erected On The Capitol Ground On 1/6/2021....

I don't think one could think that this is what happens on a normal touristy day in Washington D.C..

Have Veterans Groups Reacted To The Repugs Voter Suppression Tactics In The States?.....

I would think that veterans that served in our military and fought in wars would be up in arms against the Repugs attempts at modifying voting in the States and making it harder - instead of easier - for Americans to vote.

Veterans are the champions of justice and risk their lives for Americans so that we can have a Democracy and the right to vote. One would think that Veterans would be very vocal and opposed to the Repugs messing with that right.

My significant other is beside herself. Her brother died in Viet Nam fighting for this country and she is just appalled watching what the Repugs are doing. They are dishonoring all those that died fighting for their country and it's a slap in the face to all those that are serving in the military currently.

Why isn't there more of a push back from Veterans Groups, the Military and their families?

With Respect To An Infrastructure Bill Being Passed - I Hope Provisions Are Made For.....

Preventative Maintenance and Upkeep - so we never get ourselves as a country in the situation we're in today - where much needs to be completely rebuilt from the ground up.

If we don't have those provisions in the act - this country will face another big bill in the future.

Let's be smart about this.

When Will We Start Hearing That The 2022 Election Is The Most Critical/Important Election Ever?.....

I've always said - the next election is the most important/critical one ever.

There Appears To Be A Organized Effort By The Repugs All Over The Country To.....

do as much damage to this democracy as they can.

It's like they've been building up for years to this push and they are pulling out all the stops to do everything possible to make sure that they are in a position to regain power and this time never relinquish it again.

There's an air of desperation about their actions too and they have no guilt about how blatantly they are going about doing this. It is based on lies, racism and corruption.

They are leading with their chins and just daring the Dems to take them on - knowing that the Dems are really helpless in stopping them.

Through the years there has been a slow build-up by the Repugs to this moment in history. They seemingly, methodically and patiently shaped their strategy to win the States - governorship's and legislature's - so that they can enact laws that support their efforts.

It's like - well if the current laws don't work for us - let's just change the laws to allow us to get around them.

What they are doing is not being done in isolation. Their moves are calculated and being coordinated around the country. And they are going all out now to accomplish this.

I don't believe that the former guy is the brains behind this movement. In my opinion there is some other more sinister force that is puppet-ing this corrupt and what appears to be an illegal effort.

They are proceeding full speed ahead and even with all the negative press they are getting - there appears to be no stopping them.

They're either going to pull off a coup this time or really fail bigly in trying.

Has Anybody Directly Asked McConnell, Graham, Cruz Or Any Repug If They Believe In Democracy?.....

I wonder how they'd answer that question?

What do you think they would say?

I'll Feel Better About Relaxing Covid Restrictions And Re-opening The Country About 2 Weeks .....

after Memorial Day - if we don't see a surge in Covid cases, hospitalizations and deaths.

Until then - I'm going to remain cautious and continue to mask; social distance; wash my hands - even though I'm fully vaccinated with Pfizer since March 25th.

I guess I'm still worried about re-opening things too soon - as we've been fooled before as we relaxed and became complacent.

Are We Just Going To Watch While The Repugs Blatently Corrupt The Voting In The U.S.?.....

Just sitting back and watching what the Repugs are doing all around the country to hijack our democracy - with voter suppression; gerrymandering and unlawful recounting of votes - doesn't put a warm feeling in my tummy.

We've accomplished so much with the election of Joe Biden - taking the House and the Senate - and distancing from the former guy - are we just going to sit back and watch what they are doing in broad daylight and wind up losing all the momentum we've built up?

Inaction just doesn't seem to be an option - but I'm at a loss as to how we deal with all the Repugs dishonest activities.

Are we just going to keep trading places each election and undoing what the previous Party does?

How do we have any credibility with any of our allies around the world? Who will work with us - if we promise them the world and the rug is pulled out from under them again with the next election is run?

I don't have any suggestions as to what we could do - but we got to do something.

We have to make the American People realize that the Repugs are not their friend. That they are being taken advantage of by the Repugs and they're going to wind up being sorry - if they continue to support the Repugs.

I Really Like The Fact That Joe Biden Has Been Very Vocal & Visible To The American People.....

He is taking his popular message directly to the American People and it is resonating with us.

He is ignoring the obstructionist Repugs and frustrating the hell out of them.

By doing this he is succeeding in communicating his message and gaining support by the majority of Americans.

This strategy will allow him and the Dems to force the Repugs into having to get on board or suffer the consequences of fading into a non-existence.

The Repugs know this and that's why all the manipulations are going on in the Red States to make it harder for people to vote. They are suppressing the vote because they know that the only way that they can possibly regain power is to cheat.

I want to continue to see President Biden making his TV appearances - taking and answering questions and touting his successes.

Let the American People - put the pressure on the Repug Party to support his aggressive program.

Notice - I called it 'Aggressive' and stayed away from the word 'Progressive'.

The American People know we need this 'Aggressive' leadership - and it appears that they are rallying around it.

Yesterday on the 11th Hour Program - Bill Kristol - said that the Dems and Chuck Schumer need to be more 'Aggressive' as well. He suggested that Schumer should bring to the floor - uncomplicated and simple bills that 'no Repug' can dispute and put them on the hot seat. Either they support the bill or suffer the consequences. [Note: if anyone has that clip from last nights program - please post].

How I've Convinced Some People To Get The Vaccination......

I use this analogy. When a person doesn't get food - after a period of time they die of starvation.

I tell them it is the same with the Covid virus.

We the people - are Covid's food. Covid needs us to perpetuate. Covid feasts on us.

How can we starve Covid? Well by not making ourselves available as food for Covid.

How do we do that?

Wear our masks. Isolate ourselves for a period of time from other people. Social distance. And above all - GET VACCINATED.

Don't give Covid a chance to use us as its food.

We need to essentially cut off as many pathways for Covid to use us people as its food.

Too me this is a simple way to explain to the the - anti-vaxxers and anti-maskers -how we can stop Covid dead in it tracks.


I've now talked about 7 people into getting vaccinated because of this analogy.

It seems to resonate with them and they understand it.

Try it out with some of your friends, family and colleagues that refuse to get vaccinated.

It worked for me.
