The Supreme court has a sad….

Well…you would think that stealing 3 seats and putting unqualified partisans on the SC would make them more popular, wouldn’t you? And overturning Roe in the Texas case should make them more popular shouldn’t it? Not following 50 years of settled law should also make them more popular shouldn’t it? Okay, pretty obvious sarcasm there and that leads up to the latest poll on whether Americans think the SC is doing it’s job as it’s supposed to and only 37% of Americans think so…and over 60% think the court has gone to far to the right and are letting their political views color their decisions….but, that is the court McConnell stole and it really is in danger of completely destroying any moral authority they used to have…and now Amy Barrett shows how tone deaf she is by downplaying the justices personal biases while giving a speech at Louisville’s McConnell center after being introduced by McConnell himself to a swooning crowd of McConnell donors…this isn’t even a court anymore…it’s more of a wing of the repub party that can’t win elections without cheating and who packed the courts with cheating…I wonder why people think the court is illegitimate? geez…

Let’s talk about California…

Well…not sure if you have been following it but there was a huge recall election yesterday in California where the repubs there and across the country tried to steal the governor’s office by using an arcane recall law to put continuing Newsom’s time in office up for a vote….and it only took like 1% of the people in Cali to sign the recall petition to force them to have the election even though they knew the chance of a repub winning in Cali is almost zero. So, Newsom won the election with 67% of the votes there and the front running repub didn’t even get as many votes as “none of the above” got so you know it was a sham from the start…and I think the reason for the election was not to throw Newsom out of office, but just to hurt California since, with how big the state is, the election cost the taxpayers there over 275 million dollars and the repub party there is shrinking by the day…this is just a fit of petty spite by repubs that just wanted to screw with a state that they will never run again…this is what the modern repub party is…just petty spite wrapped in hate and incompetence….and the voters are starting to catch on….geez…

“Severe mental decline”

Well…I see there is a new book coming out co written by Bob Woodward (of Watergate fame) that really is quite scary…in it they say the idiot trump had planned try to start a war to stay in power and you could see it with idiot boy’s belligerence toward China…and they quote the chairman of the joint chief’s, General Milley, saying he noticed a “severe mental decline” in the idiot after the election and even went so far as to use backchannel communication with his counterpart in China to assure him that the US was not going to attack them to keep them from launching a first strike. All of this because a minority of the country thought it was a good idea to elect a mentally unstable moron to the presidency. I still have a question, though…everyone knew this about trump, so why didn’t any of these supposed concerns turn into action against the idiot? Why are we now just hearing about this? This is what happens when a political party puts itself above the country and any tactic or lie is fair game…and it is still going on right now from the repubs as they still listen to the unstable idiot from Florida….geez…

Retirees, blame Joe Manchin…

Well…with the way he’s acting on the infrastructure bill, you would think Joe Manchin was a damn repub….just yesterday, it was reported that Manchin is a hard no on the 3.5 trillion dollar bill that would start fixing all of the neglect of the infrastructure that has happened over the past 50 years…and that bill also includes expansion of Medicare to cover vision, hearing, and dental care…so retirees, when you buy hearing aids, buy eyeglasses, or have a filling or extraction or bridge done…and you pay for it out of your pocket, you can thank Joe Manchin….and the sick thing is that he won’t even say why..even when this idiot is told that it will be paid for by raising taxes on the rich and corporations…oh, that’s why…Manchin is in the pocket of business and he has been told that he will vote against any rise in taxes on them….so, again, business screws over the working people who keep them in business because the are greedy as hell and just want to use infrastructure for free since many of them pay no taxes at all…so that means you and I are building roads and bridges for these pricks to use as they laugh and count their money. I sure hope there will be a progressive challenger to Manchin to give the people a real voice for a change…think what could be accomplished if a real dem sat in Manchin’s seat…geez…

It doesn’t only affect them….

Well….one of the stupid arguments that the repubs use to justify not being vaccinated is that it is a “personal choice” that only affects them and they are willing to take that risk for “freedom”…but what they don’t say is that “personal” choice has fallout that they don’t give a damn about…as the unvaccinated fill up every hospital bed across the country, other innocent people are being denied the emergency care they need to save their lives…just the other day the doctors for a man with a heart attack in NC tried 31 hospitals and there was not one bed available…and the man died before he could be saved which would have happened in normal times…and there was a gunshot victim in Kansas that was told to just go home since there was no one to treat him and no room in the hospital…and that man died at home, too….and this is happening across the country as these selfish, unvaccinated assholes practice their “freedom” by filling up hospitals so there are no birthing rooms available for pregnant women who are ready to deliver, either. I think that when an unvaccinated person who has chosen to not get vaccinated for “reasons” shows up at an emergency room, they need to be told that there are other people that need to be treated who aren’t stupid and they will get to them when everyone else who is vaccinated is treated….they want choice, suffer the consequences….geez…

Never seen this Joe Biden before…

Well…I think any of us who have followed Joe Biden at all in his career would have expected more of the same style of centrist incremental politics that he has practiced his whole life…til now. His 8 months in office have shown us a bold Biden, one who has ended the war in Afghanistan without listening to the people who got and kept us there for 20 years….an now he is pushing for 45% of all of our energy to come from solar in the next 10 years…and the one thing we aren’t seeing is him apologizing for any of his actions or trying to cajole people to understand…just yesterday, he gave a speech saying: “we’re going to protect our vaccinated workers from unvaccinated co-workers” as he announce a vaccine mandate for all companies with more than 100 workers…and he wasn’t done there…he went after the stupid repubs who are trying to get people killed with their laws against mask mandates and vaccine mandates for schools and bluntly called out the repubs who are trying to take money from schools for protecting children and promised he had their backs…and he made it abundantly clear that he is done with the bullshit repubs who whine and whine and do nothing but make things worse…and the refreshing thing to me is that there seems to be little political calculation in any of this…it’s just Joe doing the right thing for the right reasons and that is the kind of politician I can get behind…you go Joe!

Biden has done nothing to help people?

Well…I guess Americans are just stupid or ignorant or both…according to a poll that came out in the past few days, over 50% of Americans believe that Joe Biden has done nothing to help their lives get better…cripes, do these 50% have amnesia? Do they not remember the 1400 dollar check they got earlier in the year? I wonder if many of these folks have kids? Do they not recognize the 300 dollar monthly credit they get for each kid? Or how about getting vaccines into the arms of almost 200 million Americans? Or the billions of dollars to fix up schools and help local school districts deal with the pandemic? Or the expansion of the SNAP program that made many more people eligible for food aid? I could go on and on about all of the things this administration has done to make life better but I wonder why no one else knows these things? There are many other things that are in the pipeline that will continue to make life better for working people and we retirees…how about expansion of Medicare to cover dental, vision, and hearing care? I thing the dems have a messaging problem and need to get over it…they need to make sure that people know what they are doing for them and be proud of it….they are making this country better for the little guy and that is a good thing…geez…

Keep taking that horse medicine….

Well….a news story that just came out today made me laugh a bit with the irony of it….it appears that taking horse de-wormer to treat covid is not such a good idea…a study that was done a few months back showed that men who took the drug lost most of their fertility…yep, that’s right, the idiots who are flocking to this treatment have less sperm and most of it is mutated so they can’t reproduce anymore…you know, I just thought of Charles Darwin when I read that article and think it just perfect that these morons will have a hard time having any more little idiots…and with them dying in droves because they didn’t get the vaccine, it thins the herd quite a bit and that is just what this country needs…you can’t reason with these morons so the only way to get through to them is if they die….and I won’t shed one damn tear when they do…geez…

Why isn’t McCarthy in jail?

Well….look, I know that the repubs don’t think that the law applies to them but, damn, is Merrick Garland in on it, too? Just last week, when the House January 6th select committee sent letters to all of the big telecoms telling them to preserve any and all records having to do with the January 6th attack, Kevin McCarthy blatantly threatened them with retribution if they cooperated with the committee…and just yesterday another 13 of the repub conspirators sent a letter to the same telecom companies threatening that they will not be allowed to operate in the US if they cooperated with the committee…now, isn’t obstructing a congressional investigation a crime? Yep, it is and this goes to obstruction of justice, too, and now we have Merrick Garland sitting on his hands when the DOJ should be on this right now to squash these little pricks who are so concerned because these records will probably show that all of the 140 odd repubs who voted to not certify the election results were in on the attack. If Garland won’t bring charges against these traitors, then he needs to resign and let someone who will protect this country do it…it needs to happen today since every damn day these assholes continue to get away with breaking the law, the more they will do it….geez…

Let’s talk about Texas…

Well…I know I talked a bit about the new Texas abortion elimination laws yesterday but I didn’t touch on the part that makes vigilantes of every citizen of Texas and allows them to sue anyone taking part in the abortion for 10,000 dollars…even a taxi driver that can’t know what the women in his or her cab is going to do…or even women that talks to their friends about having an abortion….now the right wing Taliban on the court have said that it’s all peachy keen with them to have the law go into effect right now since it is a “new and very complex law” and would take too long to study it…and this has never happened in the history of the court, they usually put it on hold until they have time to study it and judge it’s constitutionality but these 5 morons said hey, we don’t care if it’s unconstitutional…lets just let Texas try this out for a while…who cares if it infringes on the 1st amendment and many others…it’s just too complex for us to figure out. So this is why the filibuster has to go right now and we need to expand the court by at least 4 justices and Biden can pick real ones that will follow the law and the SC would no longer be the right wing heaven the repubs just love….geez…
