trumps biggest crimes

are the crimes that only a president can commit and crimes that harm vast numbers of our people. He continues committing them in broad daylight everyday, but apparently there is no law against it. Maybe there should be a law that only applies to presidents and ex presidents of the United States, that say you can't lie about elections, you can't whip up your supporters to attack Congress, etc. just a thought.

Stormy Daniels was paid for her silence

Dear news media, This possible indictment IS a big deal. It's not a false FEC filing, or a business records issue. It is a presidential candidate defrauding the American voters. No one knows if the discloser of trumps affair would have eroded his support enough to put Hillary in the White house. We will never know that, but we do know that trump thought it would, and illegally bought off her silence, so he could win. He cheated the American people, and the harm was done to us all.

Water Bear with a new song

This is NOT my music...please do not compliment/... me. (just putting that first) This is a song from a fellow musician friend of mine. I'm just sharing his music here.




A note from my friend, Steve
[i"Hello Friends,

I want to invite you to listen to my new song, Karen Wants to Speak to the Manager. The link is on soundcloud, here.

I was inspired to write this while waiting to talk to my phone company representative. I was in a state of irritation and a moment of perspective helped me make fun of myself a bit.

This song is just for FUN. If you are named Karen, you are a fabulous amalgamation of miraculous star stuff, as are we all, donít forget.

I had fun slicing recordings of my voice like a quilter and processing and patching them back together. I recorded my mouth going ďpopĒ with my finger and that is part of the percussion track.

Later I will put this up on Water Bearís Bandcamp page here so you can download it if you want.

Water Bear is reforming and making new music! We are looking for a bass player, if you know anyone with chops who likes, um, art rock I will call it, send them my way please.

Gratitude and Blessings,


News media framing

tells me that the government has been weaponized. Dems in disarray...ugh

I propose a new word

Greatch...pronounced by saying "great" with the tch sound at the end.

I'm not sure how to describe the meaning grammatically.

You can use it as a noun or like the word "cool" but meaning to show gratitude, generosity, abundance, a gift of great value.

Wishing you all lot's of holiday greatch!

Where is a map of CA 2022 Congressional districts w/cities/roads

I've just spent the last half hour trying to find out which congressional district includes Lake Forest CA. Maybe I'm just not asking google the right questions, but I'm getting very frustrated with what should be a pretty simple task. Most of the maps don't have the cities or roads showing. Some are very interactive and show all kinds of details like demographics, partisan breakdowns, who is running. All well and good, but I think it should be key info to any citizen to find out what district they are located in. sheesh. Any help would probably make me feel pretty inept but greatly appreciated none-the-less.

Am I crazy to contemplate the worst case scenario?

Like for instance, when the traitor calls for a demonstration in Washington, suggesting violence, or even calling outright for violence. How will law enforcement respond, the DOJ? Will they arrest him then? When he is sitting in jail calling for more violence etc. will they need to gag him. His odious followers will then no doubt attempt some really stupid and dangerous actions.
I guess I'm just thinking that we (the DOJ) needs to prepare. I hope there are some pretty smart folks gaming this out, not only in the DOJ but the Whitehouse too. I'm not suggesting that he shouldn't be treated like the traitor he is, just that there are so many scenarios and outcomes possible and hopefully we won't be caught flat footed.

Thanks for letting me share some thoughts

Democrat Wins in Midterm Spell Trouble for Biden in '24

That is your headline, now go write the story! We have a paper to get out!

Moving forward messaging

We should be looking forward on the coronavirus and future viruses by claiming that we are beating the virus, that we are better prepared for the future, medical teams in place, testing etc, and we can manage what ever comes next.

We should frame the issue of the insurrection as an ongoing threat. We need to spell out what a threat to our democracy is in starker and more descriptive forms. Say things like "they want to overthrow the will of the people" or "they want to throw out your vote or stop you from voting".

Tell voters what you are doing to make the future better and make the democracy stronger.

I'm just sharing some of my thoughts
