We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I'm sure Robin Givhan is a nice lady but is this obsequious fawning or what?
“Biden lifted some — not all, but some — of the sadness and anger that hovered over the Black community, immigrants, Jews and others…”
“… as they’d watched the current administration allow white supremacy to grow freely and thrive. Biden was willing to acknowledge the existence of systemic racism not in theory, but in reality….. Black voters raised up Biden because he was the tonic they believed a divided and exasperated nation could accept and he was the reliable partner they could trust. He was a pragmatic choice, but that doesn’t lesson his value…. He didn’t come to this race with revolutionary goals that would fundamentally remodel this country. Perhaps there will be time for that. Biden promised to focus on the urgent need to right this country’s course. And in doing so, to give everyone the space not just to breathe — but to safely, thankfully and blessedly exhale.” Robin Givhan
This was even embarrassing to read. There will be tsunamis of this vacuous tripe, in addition to self righteous platitudes, trite cliches, and useless geezer narratives. How do these people manage to breathe on their own?
The bottom line is that we are stuck in a life boat with vacuous gas bags (Joe), histrionic teen age girls (Dem rank and file), the crazy malicious EX (AOC), bleating morons, and the sleazy opportunists have the tiller.
If you will steal shoes, you will steal an election. If stealing shoes doesn't bother you, stealing an election doesn't bother you. All over the world, all the way back in time; elections have been stolen. But not in the USA?
By now, if you’ve been paying attention, there is no doubt that election fraud was perpetrated at a massive rate across the nation and not just in the critical battle ground states. Some 700,000 ballots were fraudulently submitted in Texas alone. The identified actual voter fraud would if proven overturn Biden’s win in all four of the battle ground states giving Trump the win. But therein lies the problem; the courts. Going back to the massive voter fraud in Texas it is useful to understand that this fraud was perpetrated and allowed by a Houston precinct judge. The problem with proving the voter fraud will not be lack of evidence but rather the political philosophy of the judge hearing the case. This is good news for Biden and the Democrats because it is likely that even though massive voter fraud can be proven the liberal judges will deny the evidence and Biden will successfully steal this election. But by the same token it is bad news for the nation and confidence in the rule of law. Because in the end the 71,000,000 Trump voters and the 70,000,000 Biden voters and the 2,500,000 dead voters will know that the election was in fact stolen and Biden is a crook and that the legal system failed the nation. This will require 70,000,000 living people to lie to themselves and to everyone else while knowing that they too are crooks unwilling to acknowledge that the Democrats stole the election. But maybe even more problematic it will require that 71,000,000 Trump voters swallow this crap and accept this crime. And THAT is the problem! I don’t think that the 71,000,000 Trump voters are going to accept this even after a liberal judge declares it to be so. I can’t predict what 71,000,000 people might do but I will bet that some of them will “resist”. And THAT is not going to end well.
There is something odd going on in Europe. Borders are closed and air traffic is being canceled. The various countries have called up their armies and they are armed in at various locations around cities and borders.
A new mutated Covid is spreading, or that is the rumor, actually more than a rumor, but no one knows how dangerous the new virus is and whether it will negate the vaccines being developed. It developed in mink in northern Denmark and now is infecting humans. Countries are closing their borders to Denmark (and should probably be closing their borders to each other). The U.S. has done nothing yet (and my guess is will do nothing given the political chaos going on).
