Just dreaming...if the Dems had someone as gutsy as Comrade Desantis,

what legislation would he/she/they introduce in a heartbeat?

1) Eliminate the Electoral College

2) No infringement permitted on a person's healthcare decision

3) US Senate folded into the House to make it to make one body called 'Congress'

4) Expand SCOTUS to 15 Justices with one Justice retiring at the end of every session. (hence term limits)

5) Corporate taxes would be increased a substantial amount, approx to the level of most broad economic growth experienced of the US history. 85%?

6) Each state would have two Senators, one male and one female.

7-8-9-etc) name others you feel might fit this pipe dream.

Happy Dyngus Day!

Bring your pussy willows to the parade in Buffalo, NY, and to whereever there are celebrations. Chicago? Minneapolis?

I'll bet there will be plenty of Ukrainian flags flying along with Polish flags.

Notice how young are the members of the Ukrainian parliament?

They look to be about 35 years old.
Young enough to fight in the military and old enough to be wise representatives of their contemporaries.

Another good model for the US.

When I hear the name Jens Stoltenberg (Sec Gen of NATO),

my first immediate thought is ' isn't he one of the generals who tried to assassinate Hitler?'

Has there been any report of Ukraine considering using the Latin alphabet instead of Cyrillic?

as a move away from Russian influence? They already use the letter 'i' which is not found in cyrillic.

Serbia uses both Latin and Cyrillic alphabets.

Amin Mohidin on MSNBC is the only personality who pronounces Kyiv with 2 syllables.

My Ukrainian PhD Linguist friend told me, Kyiv has 2 syllables, not as Keeev.
Key-yev is how the Russians pronounce it.
Ukrainians say Ka-yiv.

Who do you think would Trump pick for his running mate in 2024?

(assuming he's still alive and not in jail?)

Pence disqualified himself on Jan6 and in yesterday's speech.

Trump wouldn't trust DeSantis remaining in the oval office if Trump needed to run to the kitchen for a snack.

Niki Haley? hmmm, but she's a woman and that is a disqualifier for a misogynist party. (except for Ivanka)

Gym Jordan? yeah, maybe.

I just wonder if Joe Biden can enact prison reform...

after he analyzes the extremely light sentences of the Jan6 terrorists, and announces he is pardoning thousands of incarcerated men and women with light drug possession sentences.

He could justify it by saying the judges are establishing new sentencing norms and he wishes to continue the trend and equalize sentences. (and release Crystal Mason from her 5 year sentence for improper voting)

What I'm really saying....I hope judges are prodded into handing out longer sentences for the insurrectionsts than they are now.

One of my annual Thanksgiving traditions is that I trash the old spices

and restock with small amounts of new, fresh ones.

It is taking longer to find Brian Laundrie,

than it took for find the body of Gabby Petito.
