I'm an attorney from South Jersey and have been floored by many of my colleagues who are smart,

successful attorneys who have the same beliefs you mention about your patient. You would think someone trained in the law would recognize the threat to our democracy posed by Trump and could recognize the lies about the pandemic. Actually, I started to notice just how many of fellow attorneys from a solid blue state like NJ supported “W’s” presidency which also baffled me as the lies started in ernest with his administration. The Obama came along and you would think that they would recognize his brilliance even if you didn’t agree with his policies. I reasoned that they were racists. My brother-in-law is an uneducated but extremely successful builder and is worth a lot of money. He has gone full Q to the point I stopped engaging with him before the 2020 election. He did say one thing that I now believe to be true. He said that Obama presidency was the worse thing to happen to race relations in our country. I sneered at him but time has proven he was correct. While we on the left saw Obama for what he is, a brilliant, moral man who epitomizes the American dream and saved our country, the Right couldn’t handle having a black man in the Oval Office and it drove them over a cliff to the point they would support the likes of Trump who embodies everything that is wrong with our country.

These big bearded bubbas don't realize that there are plenty of progressives with guns and know how

to shoot straight. RW gun waivers are cowards. Just like the last civil war they will get their asses handed to them. The big talkers should remember how the industrial might of the Union ground them to submission. Just watch how they turn on each other trying to save themselves from prison. Progressives talk softly but carry a big stick ready to slap the crap out of these traitorous bastards. They wake the sleeping giant at their own peril. I can’t wait for the day to come when the “woke” movement rises up against Fox, Murdoch’s and rest of the propagandists who should be dealt with like the Italians dealt with Mussolini. Drag them through the streets for the crimes they have committed against this country. A reckoning is coming and the right better straighten their shit out before it’s too late.

Good. Christian, fascists bastards defund planned parenthood and want to impose their Taliban style

of governance on the state. Texas governor is a first class asshole and has W’s intelligence. Texas wants to leave the country, I say good riddance. I would love to watch Mexico take back their territory from the country of Texas. I would laugh my ass off seeing Texan refugees storming into the USA and being put in cages for deportation. You can’t fault a guy for dreaming and I apologize to my DU brothers and sisters and fellow Democrats who live in Texas and oppose the radical right there. Just the fantasizing of a guy who lived in Texas 30 years ago while attending law school for 3 years and was stopped once a week by confederate cops harassing a yankee driving a car with NJ license plates. Once I purchased a car in Houston and put Texas plates on the weekly car stops, stopped.

I'm from South Jersey and went to private Catholic High School where I met

my wife. This was about the same time period as Kavenaugh sexually assaulting women and was getting black out drunk. As a football player and at the center of the schools social scene, until I met the future wife, I saw quite a few coaches “hooking up” with students at after game parties. It bothered me then and still does. Catholic Co-Ed high school in the Philadelphia-South Jersey region in the mid-70’s was a free for all. Drugs, alcohol, groups of male students grabbing and mauling female students in cars was common. Then you had teachers and students hooking up along with at least one catholic priest who was our theology teacher and golf coach was later charged with sexually assaulting a boy on the golf team during an away golf tournament. I’m not the most devout of Catholics but the priest who was charged was very charismatic and I admired the easy way he teaches theology remarking that the Bible isn’t a history book but rather a tool to teach. What I’m getting at is this particular priest was the “cool priest” kind of like Dean Martin demeanor and very easily seduced young, vulnerable boys, a real predator with a white collar.
