repub propaganda that democrats refuse to ban gangs from gun ownership

under "red flag" laws.


if the repubs want to ban gang members from owning guns, I think we should agree with them. of course, Sicilian, irish and other "white" gangs must be included.

note : posted in right wing propaganda group. their intent seems to be to resist "red flag" laws, which we must not allow them to blame us for.

recall petition of california governor

why are they doing this? because they can. by republican standards we really should impeach trump. here are newsome's "crimes."

"Governor Gavin Newsom has violated the trust of California residents in four major areas:

Health care for illegal aliens. He seeks to make California taxpayers pay for the health care of criminal lawbreakers who entered our nation illegally at a starting cost of over $100 million. This policy will serve as a magnet to attract thousands more illegal immigrants to California which will lead to skyrocketing costs and additional burdens on physicians and hospitals.

Tax increases. Despite a massive budget surplus of $21 billion, he proposes more than $2 billion in additional taxes on the people of California, including a water tax. California already has the highest taxes in the nation which are driving away our best residents and businesses.

Homelessness. He has allowed our major cities to be overrun by homelessness, creating a threat to public health and hygiene and leading to Third World-like conditions and diseases in places like Los Angeles and San Francisco

Sanctuary State & Cities. He has violated and subverted federal immigration law by encouraging “Sanctuary State” and city policies that shield criminal illegal aliens from law enforcement and immigration authorities, including vicious and brutal MS-13 gang members. "

the paranoid style in american politics

if you have never read this classic article find a comfortable time and treat yourself to the real history of the usa and right wing propaganda. written in 1964, the article describes q anon as well as anyone today...….


"How can we account for our present situation unless we believe that men high in this government are concerting to deliver us to disaster? This must be the product of a great conspiracy on a scale so immense as to dwarf any previous such venture in the history of man. A conspiracy of infamy so black that, which it is finally exposed, its principals shall be forever deserving of the maledictions of all honest men. . . . What can be made of this unbroken series of decisions and acts contributing to the strategy of defeat? They cannot be attributed to incompetence. . . . The laws of probability would dictate that part of . . . [the] decisions would serve the country’s interest."

the debbil an' donnie trump

most retelling of the faust tale end happily. a great lawyer argues the case before a jury of the damned, or the incredible musical duel with the devil.

as part of my research for my new musical version of "the debbil an' Donnie trump" I wanted to get back closer to the original so I reread geothe. in german, and side by side in English translation. there is something I had missed in that classic comic I did the book report on in high school.

so anyway, my little musical seems to have an ambivalent ending. of course guliani gets to argue the case before andy Warhol and his gang at the studio 54 vip bar, not only does the disco ball reach full rotation as trump and mephestopheles spin the disco vinyl, but trump can dance out to curtain with a much younger version of gwen verdon

btw, wasn't "damn yankees" Nugent's band?

the "citizen" question on the census

aren't they really going to find that those agricultural counties, the red counties, are full of non citizens. this might shift more congressional districts to the urban centers.
