Does anyone here play Spades on-line?

The largest failure of the right.

I think that it is very simple, they just can not grasp the concept that something may not be any of their damn business.

In the Spirit of Christmas, can we say some nice things about MTG?

I will start:

She is not nearly as stupid as she looks! Merry Christmas Greenie!

If you have ever raised chickens (and I know some of you may not have ;) )

They have a lot of nasty habits. One of the ones that I found particularly disgusting is that if a chicken develops a sore anywhere on it's body, the other chickens will begin to peck at it until they finally kill the unfortunate bird. What starts out as a small injury becomes deadly in a hurry. It is not a nice way to go and the poor victim has no idea why she is being pecked to death.

I am beginning to get the feeling that the chickens in the Republican Party have spotted a sore on Trump's lousy ass.

Bon Appétit

Brook Benton sends consolation to Georgia Republican voters:



I went to bed early last night and slept in this morning, so I was on pins and needles as the computer booted up. Whew!

Bumped into a high school friend for the first time in 30 years.

I was getting my car serviced, and I was commenting on his really nice restored vintage pickup truck when I realized who he was. After the handshake and the greeting, I asked how his brothers were. That question changed the whole direction of the conversation to politics. His older brother was not speaking to the rest of the family because the guy I was talking to and the other siblings voted for Trump. It took this right winger 30 seconds to go from "Nice truck" to hateful politics. He went on to tell me how much he really hated BLM as it was a Communist front. He then checked himself for a second with the comment, "I don't know what your politics are." I just replied that I had no politics and said my goodbyes and good lucks. Fuck him, and the truck he rode in on....

Growing up in a small town you get to know just about everyone in about a ten mile radius. Of the people I grew up with, the people I knew, and the people I knew by reputation, it must be 90% or better that have gotten on the hate train. I am very curious, being that I came from the same circumstances, had the same teachers, went to the same churches, played on the same playgrounds, went to the same basketball games, what the hell happened to me? Why did my my philosophy take an entirely different path? How does it work?


Lone Ranger of the kitchen.

I am no great cook by any means, but I can prepare a healthy and edible meal. In fact, my wife and I share kitchen duty about equally. That said, what I do not need in the kitchen is any help. No, I don't want you to slice the veggies, I will wash the dishes and clean up the mess, just stay the hell out of my way and no one gets hurt. Maybe it is a "man thing," I don't know.

You Betcha I lost....

I may just paddle my kayak to Russia! Alaskans and Americans just don't deserve me....

Musings: Perhaps crazy wasn't as fun as we thought it would be? Will the trend continue?

That is the question going forward. It would help a great deal if the former CIC (criminal in chief) was dragged, kicking and screaming, through the criminal court system. Maybe now that Murderoch has waved his magic fox, and has told Trump to take a hike, the DOJ will have permission to move forward on the Trump case.

It will be very interesting to witness how long it takes the Murdoch propaganda machine to reconvert the Trump fans it created. It should be fun to watch the masses being reshaped. Fox needs to remind the Trumpians that the Don made the first move to take their guns... (bump stocks) and that the new Trump administration, that has turned its back on real Americans, and has a secret plan to outlaw guns; that should get the ball rolling. They have two years to turn the Trump cult into the DeSantis cult. The clock is ticking.

This old atheist just sent money, out of state, to a preacher in Georgia...

No insult to ActBlue, the Democratic Party, or DU, but donating through the link on the forum, only half of the funding goes to the candidate, the rest to the Party. Not that I figure that the party couldn't uses it, but I thought that Brother Warnock could use every penny of it in the next few weeks...

It ain't much, but it is all I can do. At least now I can feel like I have some skin in the game.
