So... It's been a difficult day... But since I've been called out a few times today, I'll comment on the days news [View all]

Forgive me if I’m a bit scattered, it’s been … Well, a rough one.

I came on tonight because I can’t sleep and thought I’d check the events of the day. As I’m reading through, I find that gab13by13 felt the need to call me out at least twice.

There may be more, I’ve stopped reading after I saw the second one.

See… I was not here to comment on the Hur report because I was in court. Some of you may remember a post I made at the very end of July… Or the start of August… I forget the exact day… That my niece’s best friend had been murdered. Well… Today the trial started and I went with her to watch. For the first time we heard the gory details… She was beaten with a hammer…. There were broken bones… Many injuries… He then repeatedly raped her over the next several hours… He then strangled her… Finally he assaulted her corpse with the hammer some more.

So I was busy and that is why I was not here… hmmmm… Shit.

To Hur… I’ve not yet read the report but from what I gather he has shown he is a lackey for the fuckin guy and used it to show how dedicated he is to the cult.

To Garland… He was right to not interfere with Hur. He was right to not edit the report. He was right to release it in its entirety. Even President Biden wanted that.

I will not advocate OUR AG act like that shitbag Barr. I will not advocate we do things like the fuckin guy. I will not advocate we act like cultists.

Those are my thoughts and I stand by them.

This has taken a very long time to type out and… Was hard. So if you’ll excuse me, I have some drinking to do.

If you think people are advocating the Garland act like Barr, you have completely missed the point. W_HAMILTON Feb 2024 #3
I'm not commentating on anything anyone else said Ohio Joe Feb 2024 #11
Then why bring up the fact you don't hold certain views that those rightfully criticizing Garland also do not hold? W_HAMILTON Feb 2024 #13
Then why are you pursuing this after reading where the OP stands today? It's enough. Hekate Feb 2024 #14
It wasn't enough. W_HAMILTON Feb 2024 #16
