How much giggling and joking do you ...

… think the committee and staffers did putting together the Hawley scene? I’d have loved to have been there.


The REAL takeaway from the Loudermilk video ...

… is that this irredeemable piece of disloyal shit reflexively lied about giving the tour, and did so blatantly and without a shred of shame nor regard for the consequences. His sorry ass should be reassigned to Siberia.

So - Republicans will do NOTHING? Again. Then paste ...

… that sick shit all over them. Pass a SIMPLE, stand alone background check bill in the house. Today. No riders or amendments. And no over-reach. It CAN’t have any other shit in it!!! Straight up and straight forward background check law. Bring it up for a vote in the Senate and let them vote against it.

Then pass one requiring a strict permit requirement for the purchase or possession of high capacity magazines. Call ‘em “school children slaughtering magazines”. Call the bill the “school children protection from bullets’ bill.

Then one that imposes stiff penalties on gun sellers who sell guns to people with known mental illness.

Then one that makes the minimum age 21.

Etc., etc.

Simple, stand alone bills that 70%+ Americans agree with. The key here is to keep our own wish list stuff out of these bills. Don’t give them reasons to oppose them, or ammo for FO࿖ News to spin.

And the paint the assholes with their no votes.

Alabama lawmakers claim LGBTQ school bathrooms are an 'issue', ...

“The push to stop Alabama students from using a bathroom that doesn’t correspond with their sex assigned at birth came from Alabama schools themselves, according to the bill’s sponsor, Rep. Scott Stadthagen, R-Hartselle.”

“But AL.com has been unable to verify Stadthagen’s claims that “almost every single school district in this state is dealing with this issue with opposite genders wanting to use opposite bathrooms.”


“ Stadthagen has not responded to AL.com’s repeated requests for comment or to explain which schools had faced issues.”


“Stadthagen declined to name specific schools, saying he didn’t advise naming names.“


“He declined to name any schools when pushed by a member of the House education policy committee for specifics.“


“AL.com has been unable to locate the principal Stadthagen mentioned or verify his claim.“


“Stadthagen claimed that boys have raped girls multiple times in school bathrooms. During the committee hearing, he declined to name any specific cases of this happening in Alabama, or any examples of transgender students attacking other students.“

Stadthagen is obviously playing to stupid people, but shouldn’t they be offended that he thinks they’re THAT stupid?

I'm not a politician or a media ...

… talking head. But how common is it for Fox celebrities to have the WH Chief of Staff’s cell phone contact? Maybe that’s not weird, but it kinda feels weird.

The Department of Labor should offer ...

… a $10,000 bounty to whistleblowers who turn in businesses that fail to comply with the new vaxx requirement. I’m in Alabama. I’d be wealthy in 6 months.

These people in Ark on MSNBC are too stupid ...

… to be allowed to participate in a functioning society. Sorry - no link. Just saw the segment on the R Gov being heckled by five moronic dudes, one old drunk chick and some fella with green teeth.

Did that piece of shit Bolton just say ...

… that he couldn’t speak out on behalf of his country because he was in a book deal?

Live interview on CNN.

Re Майк Flynn. This latest episode is ...

... evidence of just how messed up our democracy has become.

We have all seen the tape. His response to the question was clearly supportive of an armed insurrection against the US and a military takeover. We know this from the context and inflection of his words, and the ovation he received from the mob. And also from his history of similar statements. There is no doubt what he was saying.

But because a transcript of the statement can be re-punctuated to seem like he meant the opposite, that he was saying there is “no reason for an insurrection here”, he can “pretend” that he has been taken out of context and the media is treating him unfairly.

So Democratic leaders take a soft stand. The media moves on. And the Qberts admire how “slick” Flynn is because he spoke code and owned the libs. And send him some $ or buy another T-shirt.

They think they are smarter than the left and can get away with anything, and our collective responses to this kind of shit simply reinforces that belief. They DO get away with it.


Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill admits affair, won't run for U.S. Senate: 'There's no excuse

Source: AL.com

After initially denying reports of an affair, Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill on Wednesday afternoon told AL.com that he had “an inappropriate relationship” with a 44-year-old woman and will not make an anticipated run for the U.S. Senate.

—Snip—

In an interview with AL.com on Wednesday morning, Merrill denied having had an affair and accused Cesaire McPherson of “stalking” and “harassing” him.

—Snip—

McPherson provided Al.com with a recording of an October 2020 conversation between her and Merrill, who is a Republican. In the 17-minute recording, Merrill and McPherson discuss various sexual acts they performed during dozens of romantic encounters that McPherson says took place between November 2017 and November 2020.

Looks like he was ready to victimize her as a crazy stalker until she produced the taped conversation. Good ol’ Family Values. At least he’s off the Senate trail now.
