I'm not going to predict it but wouldn't it be ironic if

Dobbs actually ended up being responsible for saving our democracy??

My grandmother used to tell me this when I thought things were going badly for me: "Everything happens for a reason."

Maybe Dobbs had to happen to save us?

Reviewing the past litigations of team Trump since 2015 and the lawyers he has chosen, the outcomes

of their filings etc., one has to wonder if these people actually too the Bar Exam themselves and whether or not some are actually real attorneys right now? Who checks before they are allowed to represent a client in court?

Seriously, how could the country trust any Special Master selected by Trump team to not be a clear

and present danger to the nation? Who could they name that could be trusted to review TS intel information? Everyone surround Trump is either corrupt, compromised, ignorant, bigoted, anti-American, anti-democracy, or just plain stupid.

I believe this judges Special Master decision will only add to the motivation of Dems and others to

GOTV and vote against even more GOP

I just watched POST for the third time on Netflix. CNN has driven me to docu dramas again.

Shouldn't there be a national infrastructure movement for water treatment plants in major cities and

municipalities like there was for the interstate highway system? It seems to me that we are facing a national emergency with two big infrastructure systems, water treatment and energy grids. The building of the highway system was accepted as a great idea for jobs and transportation but it did destroy farms and homes of the most disadvantaged among us at the time.

Our energy grid(s) is suffering right now but since nothing major has happened in gated communities it is being virtually ignored by most voters. Water treatment problems seem to be affecting major inner cities across the nation now but hasn't reached much into the gated communities yet. But no one is exempt from aging infrastructure issues.

My nieces are dealing with corroding septic systems in rural GA right now. Well waters are facing seeping pollution from surrounding industries. We are on a collision course with time and nature. Even those gentrified communities that have swept into many inner cities will be facing this sooner rather than later. We need to put our taxes where our priorities should be and not slipping more of the dollars through loopholes into the pockets of people who have more money than they need but who really pollute our systems the most.

Economically dumb here. But rising interest rates seem to be another boondoggle for the wealthy.

The wealthy can afford the rising prices because the rising interest rates make up the difference to the wealthy investors. So they get the benefit of rising interest rates that adds to their hoarded wealth portfolios, while rising prices adds to windfall profits which also add to their wealth from the stock dividends from the record profits. At the same time, the wealthy continue to buy, buy, buy because they can afford the higher prices that the rest of consumers struggle to buy necessities at outrageous prices. Prices continue to rise because pricing rests in the hands of mega corporations and with the bakers that keep giving them the money at their bargain interest rates while the resulting inflation kills the rest of us. It's like they are pinching the rest of us until we cry ouch!!

You all know the saying "Shoot first ask questions later?" Lock him up first, answer questions later

Oh, those empty file folders...shouldn't we all be horrified? WTF Why is Trump still not in jail?

This judge who is ruling on the Special Master is worrisome.

Like most of Trump's appointments they seem to be lightweights in their field.

If the judge rules in favor of a Special Master, can her ruling be appealed by the DOJ?
