About Me

Woke Liberal Democrat long before it pissed off the Republicans.

I've been hearing that folks no longer trust Fox News...

...as if they were ever trustworthy to deliver truth and accuracy in news reporting. But I've heard this from a number of different "conservative" acquaintances and clients. I haven't asked what they mean because I don't want to get into politics with them at work. But I wonder if they have made the assessment against Fox because Fox said Biden won the election, or because of some other reason...I mean there are plenty of reasons that existed WELL before the election. But I wonder what's on their minds lately. Does anybody have a clue about this new talking point?

Does anyone else think it's more than a lust for power...

...that keeps Republicans tethered to Trump? Anyone with eyes can see, or a brain can understand the destruction Trump has done to the Republican party, indeed to our Constitutional Democracy, yet they continue to do his bidding, continue to pretend he is the way, the truth, and the light. I keep thinking it's something much more compelling than mere power that holds them. I think it's stone, cold terror. Someone has something on all of them and they are afraid of shame and/or prison. Is anyone trying to figure out what it is that is holding them?

just returned from freeperville...

Jezussss, the insanity! They truly do live on a different planet, calling Trump the honorable law and order president! I spit coffee all over the keyboard. It is highly entertaining over there, especially now that they are pissing and crapping up both legs.

The real problem is that we live in two universes.

If you've tried to reach out to "the other side" you know they have a completely different reality. The shit they come up with is mind boggling. My ex-friend yesterday told me "when they blatantly steal an election, people are going to rise up." What F***** planet do they live on? 60 cases in court and not a single piece of credible evidence of election fraud? Where do they get this shit? How sealed off from reality do they have to be and how do they manage it? But as long as this chasm between realities exist, we will not heal this wound.

Andrea Mitchell says the Senate won't impeach Trump...

...but I say, maybe they will. How many members were pissing up their own legs yesterday? How many votes do we need?

Legislators seem pretty shaken.

Their voices are quavering, their tone somber. I think the Repubs were caught up in some kind of trance that they seem to be waking from. What happened today is exactly what Iíve been worried about. How the Republicans handle it will determine if it is going to get worse or be resolved tonight.
