Well it's finally happened ...FB fight

I said I'd never do it. FB is no place for political discourse, IMHO. And in truth, I am doing it through messenger, not FB "publicly".

My adversary is a sheriff's deputy. Yeah, go big or go home, right? Neighbors' son.
Fortunately his jurisdiction is 3 counties away.

It's very strange. His parents are liberal friends. He's a bad seed. Very authoritarian and extreme in his political views; friendly guy in person. Your basic white supremacist.

He posted that Abbott's mask lifting is just fine because, liberty. I went at him with, should we be free to drive drunk? You know the shtick.

His was response was rather opaque, though he inferred my comment was kneejerk.

I haven't yet pulled out that as a political science major with a fair amount of coursework in political philosophy, no, my thinking on this is not kneejerk. I did ask him if he thought the right to define it as kneejerk attended to him, because of his badge and gun.

It's still on...

You can't convince me there wasn't coordination at the highest levels.


Will they pay for their crimes?

Remind me: what is the punishment for treason?

Sudden significant rise in anti-Asian violence in US.

My bet: veiled retaliation against VP Harris.

Just like with Obama.

A paraphrase of a quote I saw on Twitter today. From Mark Shields.

Woot! 👍

2nd Pfizer shot in the arm! Ready to re-enter society...gradually!

Finally get to see 92 year old mother-in-law after a year! We were planning to go to her birthday last March 15th... right when COVID hit. She's fully vaccinated, too, now, so...so grateful we all made it to this point!
