Amen. "About time."

A recent titbit about the Cherokee in their native habitat, western N.C.:

Long before the Great Smoky Mountains National Park's highest peak was named "Clingmans Dome," the Cherokee people called the mountain "Kuwahi" for hundreds of years.

Now, tribal members are hoping to return to the Kuwahi name. Last Thursday, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians Tribal Council passed a resolution in support of renaming the mountain, which is located along the Tennessee-North Carolina border.

Those beautiful mountains belonged to them and, damn it, they have the right to name their peaks.

Shameful U.S. history:

And on "white male dominant structure"

I love Lyndon Johnson's quote:

"If you can convince the lowest white man he's better than the best colored man, he won't notice you're picking his pocket.

Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he'll empty his pockets for you."



A blueprint for getting poor white, especially white southern men's votes.

Christian religion on male dominance....


Ephesians 5:22-25
Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,

1 Corinthians 11:8-9
For man was not made from woman, but woman from man. Neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.

Titus 2:3-5
Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.

1 Corinthians 11:3
But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God.


Okie dokie, then.

No good reason for the DoJ to defend Trump....

There is no good reason for the Department of Justice to defend a former president against charges that he defamed a woman he allegedly raped.

By Elie Mystal

I can’t believe I have to write this, but: Slandering alleged rape victims is not one of the official duties of the president of the United States. This is apparently a confusing and controversial proposition to some. But rest assured, there is nothing in Article II of the US Constitution, and nothing in any part of the US statutory code, not even the footnotes, that lists “defaming alleged rape victims” as one of the privileges or responsibilities of the office of the president.

We could, and in fact do, have a fully functioning Executive Branch without granting civil immunity to presidents who decide to call rape victims “ugly” “liars” in their personal capacity as edgelord bully on Twitter.

IF Carroll rightfully wins 🤞, are the U.S. taxpayers...

on the hook for damages too?



Indeed! 👍 And THANK YOU, again!

From the Nation article:


Garland is not offering a defense.

He’s offering absolute immunity from these charges and is willing to offer it on the taxpayers’ dime.


That’s simply unnecessary. Trump is well capable of paying for (or misappropriating charitable contributions for) his own defense.


Argument in family

DH: Garland can handle anything.
Me: Garland is a holiday decoration.

Nicest thing I can say, since I think Garland is WRONG for the job. And I HOPES HE LOSES and E.C. wins since I believe Trump sexually assaulted her.

Question: If Carroll rightfully wins, are the U.S. taxpayers on the hook❓❓

So, raping a woman was one of Trump's official duties. How fucked up is that ❓
