John Thune speaking

Infrastructure means roads, bridges, waterways, maybe airports.


He left off broadband, rail, and the power grid.

Care giving and childcare aren't infrastructure, even though parents can not get back to work unless the schools are open, their parents receive elder care, and their children have access to day care. If companies paid living wages to primary breadwinners, and one parent could stay home like they did when I was a little kid, there'd be no need for daycare. Can't keep wages low and ask both parents to work to survive without a daycare/eldercare system. Unless you bring back child labor....


Now he's scaremongering about Court Packing, even though zero new justices have actually been nominated.McConnell's theft of Garland's seat is ignored entirely as though it never happened. FDR, scare, scare, scare.

The idea that as the nation grow in population, we can' expand the size of the Supreme Court, or more importantly, the size of the House to offer equitable representation, because we need fewer Reps representing more city dwellers, and more reps representing fewer rural rubes.

The Democratic party isn't refighting the last war or trying to undo the hard fought progress in the culture wars. That's the Republican Party. The Democrats, like they did with FDR and LBJ and Carter is forward thinking and looking to move the nation into the next Century. The uber-reactionary conservative rural rubes fear change and the future and long for an imaginary past that never existed.

Hence Jim Crow 2.0 (which Thune said isn't *really* Jim Crow, that's disrespectful of our great history.) Infrastructure is just roads and bridges, and mom's should just stay home.

We should hearken back to the Great GOP era of Eisenhower and set up 90% top tax rates. Watch the GOP negotiate then.

The Florida School who wants teachers not to be vaccinated

Besides claiming "something" could be emitted out of a vaccinated person's body and affect women's reproductive systems:

The directors of the school claim a friend's roommate had never missed a period, never been late, but after being around this roommate who was vaccinated, she was ten days late, and had a very heavy blood flow.


There is no such thing as a late period.
That woman had a miscarriage. Likely, an incomplete implantation.

Wonder what this friend and her roommate were doing together?

The vaccine is not "experimental." Emergency Use Authorization doesn't mean experimental. The Pharma companies run through three phases of clinical trials, each with specific areas of focus for safety and efficacy.

I'm sorry, but their ignorance and stupidity and lies are not as good as our facts.

School closure in 3...2...1

Patholgist / Cardiologist or Pulmonologist, try again

Is this expert testifying that Floyd's heart is bigger because he's a bigger guy? Floyd's heart is not twice the size of average, or twice the size of a small dudes.

This guy is full of shit.

This is the first I've heard of an enlarged heart, which is a sign of cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure. Floyd did not have that. High blood pressure is not CHF. No. Atherosclerosis is not CHF.

Floyd did not die of ischemia. He did not die of congestive heart failure. He didn't die from hypertension. He died from positional asphyxiation because Chauvin put all his body weight on Floyd's neck.

The Irish pulmonologist and the cardiologist are both far more credible than this guy. 9 minutes and 30+ seconds.



PS. He just left off the circumflex. There are three main arteries. Three.

Logan & Abigail Evans

I am so heartbroken for and impressed with young Logan Evans.
When Majority Leader Schumer spoke about Logan's father, the little boy looked right at him, and nodded in understanding.

Speaker Pelosi acknowledged Logan and Abigail, with their stuffed support animals and toy capital squishies. When Abigail dropped her foam Capitol, THE PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES picked it up, like just another mom at the play group.

As the President speaks directly to Officer Evans mother, I have hope we a a nation will heal.

The compassion and humanity emanating from this Administration in light of these horrific murders of Capital Police Officers shows Biden's commitment to the battle for America's soul.

I ache for those two kids, and Mrs Evans, and hope this is the last Capitol police officer who lays in honor.

Insurgents of the domestic sort

I've been half listening to Nicole Wallace and her guests on NSNBC.

Not all Republicans condone this violence. It's just a small minority of Republicans who are radical and violent. The peaceful Republicans need to speak out against this violence.


Now replace Republicans with Muslims....

The GOP is Radicalized Jihadists. They hate us for our freedoms.

Let Wray Speak!

Senator Kennedy from Louisiana is interrupting every question he asks of Wray. He asked Wray who failed to call out the FBI.
He can't keep his entities straight. No one calls out the FBI during an insurrection.

He's asking Wray if the FBI is systemically racist and misogynistic. The racist misogynist from Louisiana asked that.


The GOP is all over the map in their bloviating. MS-13, now Hong Kong and the Chinese Communists, none of which was involved with the insurrection. They're conflating CIA duties and FBI duties and National Guard duties and and throwing out scare words.

It's shameful. Kennedy wastes his time by telling us he doesn't want to waste his time. Wray is not at fault, Senators. Those who are still propagating the big lie are.

Sund laid the blame on the Intelligence Community

Sund called the events of January 6 " a failure of intelligence."

Pretty sure I knew it was coming from twitter and quick drive by glances at fb.

Sund is complicit, I'd say.

Hawley needs to STFU!

He's questioning the Capitol Police. He's a smug sob. He incited the insurrectionists. He challenged Arizona's electoral college vote. He challenged other states AFTER the planned insurrection.

He's worried about chain of command. He's an inciter, and he's worried about chain of command. And optics. And how things looked. He's "concerned."

He's dangerous, and a soulless fascist. He needs to be stripped of his committees and censured at a minimum. He has no business questioning any of these people. He's a seditious traitor.

Drama Queen squealing

Van der veen is a moron.

He has nothing but histrionics because he has no defense.

He's giving Phillydelphia lawyers a bad name.

Outrage at having to defend the indefensible and projection of what his client did to the house managers.

He should be disbarred.

What a tool.
