If we do not succeed in shutting these people down, they will get away with it next time.

The handful of GOP state election officials who did not go along with the Big Lie in 2020 have all been replaced with toe-the-line party hacks.

The more I learn about US Senators the more I think there should be a personal wealth cap for anyone who wants to hold office. I’m tired of these rich, jaded assholes who rarely have ever experienced any kind of hardship telling us what we are doing wrong to not be rich like them. I know there are exceptions, Sinema for example came from a poor family that experienced homelessness. But somehow, in taking care of her own self interest, she forgot about how hard that life is and a shit ton of kids in this country and in her state are trapped in a cycle it’s almost impossible to get out of. She did, but she’s forgot about the people who helped her along the way. And those people do exist because NO ONE MAKES A SUCCESSFUL LIFE WITHOUT HELP FROM OTHERS. Billionaires and millionaires don’t get there without employees, ideas, tons of staff and lots of breaks along the way. Unless they inherited wealth, like Manchin and more than a few others. I’m tired of people who do not give a damn about those of us who worked hard and are still losing everything in a country that doesn’t care about anyone making less than a few million a year. Educated (and more importantly willing to learn and grow)working class people do exist, we just can’t get elected without tons of money.

re: #2 A Mom Anon

Running for office is expensive. Prospective Senators need to treat rich people nicely to ensure their campaigns are well funded. Thus, they spend a significant amount of time in circles of very wealthy people.

Then, if they do get elected, they need to provide the rich people some benefits for all the campaign donations and to guarantee the same rich people will donate to their RE-election campaigns.

Politics is not a poor mans business.

re: #4 Eclectic Cyborg

And that’s a problem. Some people do manage to get into office that come from humble beginnings, but we see less of that as time passes, especially at the state and federal levels. Local politics is a bit less pricey, but you have to be good at fundraising or know someone who is to get seen and heard. It’s messed up and how it gets fixed I have no idea.

But I’ve seen this movie before. Democratic administrations ultimately let GOP perps walk. They aren’t as brazen as the likes of Bill Barr, but the result is the same.

Look no further to the Obama DOJ not prosecuting Bush and Cheney over torture, or any other corrupt acts, along with letting the banksters walk after the ‘08 crash.

But the Kennedys and Roosevelts actually did shit to help people. And this was before the current toxic waste dump all over TV and the halls of Congress. We’ve always been a country at war with itself, racism, classism, misogyny, etc. But this is a different mess fueled by technology and a very shitty news media that acts like the Mean Girls in the hallway after class. This has to change. Somehow.

re: #309 Backwoods_Sleuth

Having read these defenses of the “parents” earlier on a FB Trumpster page and having her and her friends attack me for my response, I find this especially disturbing. Recall over a decade ago, the DHS issued a warning about the increasing dangers of white nationalism but they faced pushback from the GOP and abandoned efforts to stop this danger. This is the GOP base; think of Blackburn and others of her ilk as being the advance guard for the fascist (neo Nazi) takeover of our nation. We underestimate their influence at our own peril — there are 74 million shock troops infesting our nation, spreading lies and hate wherever they have a voice.

The 18-year-old killed appears to be Jerry Springer-style trash, having so little self-control that she attacked a child, despite being a mother herself. It’s still murder. No one was in immediate danger. A “safety officer” murdered someone for not complying with his demands.

re: #18 Hecuba’s daughter

I could easily see Liz use this commission as a way to ascend to the head of the party… namely, it’s damn hard to run a political party, less so if all of your enemies have been tried for sedition or treason or terrorism. Is she ruthless enough…. remains to be seen. If power is a means to an end, even the power of a diminished GOP is lofty indeed and all that dark money has to go somewhere, it most likely will not find a home with Dems, so Liz gets to use the power of the government to disenfranchise her enemies in the party and make herself and those like her the only game in town for Conservative ideals that still have a platform if she decides to go all in. Would be extremely Machiavellian.

Dividends and interest? Gifts from parents? Royalties from a book they wrote years ago? This is untenable.

Just go back to the until-Trump standard conflict of interest ethics rules.

They made Jimmy Carter sell his peanut farm.

Barack Obama had substantial investment funds, mostly earned from book royalties, plus Michelle had a pretty good salary when she was a lawyer in private practice. But he put all that money where nobody could accuse him of anything untoward — half went into index funds, the other half into t-bills.

Let’s not let Senators (or their families) trade stocks, or buy real estate. Kelly Loeffler, I’m looking at you.

As I said yesterday, the costs of public office are too high for those of modest means. Such a person cannot afford to live in Washington DC and retain a home in their own state. If elected, they are forced to live away from their family and their ability to help out when there are family crises is strictly limited. For those who are wealthy, they’ll be getting investment income without having to do any work to maintain a lavish lifestyle in multiple locations. We have to do more to make public office financially feasible for those of more modest means.

I agree, and I left out the part where I think we need to raise their salary to cover the requirements of their job. And provide other things like a place to stay when in DC. And, with it being the 21st century, maybe we need to do more about allowing them to work remotely.

Require that they put all their assets except for their home state home, and a DC area home into a blind trust, or that they sell them off.

If they have stock or options vesting, work out some deal to cash them out. TFG’s first Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, did this to some extent. He sold his existing Exxon stock, and agreed to put any delayed stock into a blind trust that could not invest in Exxon, and agreed not to work in the oil/gas industry for decades. This is not ideal, because he would still benefit from an increase in share price at the time his shares would have vested.

Something like this needs to be written into law.

Rex Tillerson to put Exxon nest egg in a trust over conflict of interest concerns

Of course, Exxon stock did end up dropping so he didn’t do too badly. I wonder if he agreed to this because he suspected Exxon’s price would be dropping anyways.

Oh, and he also got a tax deferral for the shares he had to sell and replace with government securities and diversified mutual funds — i.e, the taxes would be delayed until he sold whatever government securities he bought to replace his Exxon stock.

Tax deferral for Rex Tillerson

Biden has sounded “exasperated” at Sinema and fellow holdout Sen.

Ohio student, 10, confronts anti-maskers at board meeting: ‘Please be quiet. It’s inappropriate’

AKRON, Ohio — The youngest person who spoke in favor of masks at Wednesday night’s school board meeting in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, decided she wasn’t going to let anti-maskers steal her thunder.

Before 10-year-old Kaylan Park stepped up to the microphone at the contentious meeting, she had watched other pro-mask speakers get interrupted by heckles and boos from people who oppose the district’s mask mandate. A couple of those opponents ended up walking out of the meeting in anger.

snip

“It is super weird to be here because adults don’t think that their children should wear masks,” Kaylan said when it was her turn to speak. “…A lot of you guys are adults. You guys should be able to know that masks save lives.”

When some audience members voiced disagreement, Kaylan responded: “Can I please speak? Let me speak before you guys go off.”

Her demand was met with applause.

But some audience members continued talking, which prompted Kaylan to say emphatically: “Please be quiet…It’s inappropriate that you guys can’t stay quiet.”

Kaylan, who was wearing a mask bearing the message “Masks Save Lives,” noted that donning a face covering is an act of kindness toward others.

The only thing that kept their plan from working in 2020 was the record turnout for Biden plus a handful of GOP state election officials with some sense of integrity and decency. Those guys are all gone, replaced by “reliable” people who will “behave” and refuse to certify votes whenever and wherever they are told (they will make sure to refuse to certify some GOP victories just to appear “balanced”)

I think we’re all tired. And tired of being nice. I’m on the fence here because of life experience. I’m a good and kind hearted person.I’ve always tried to be helpful, smart about what I do as much as I can and all of that. And I still am that way, but my heart is fucking broken and it’s hard not to be fucking pissed about it. And to do what it takes to stop this fucked up mess.

On the flip side, I know from horrible experiences that the only way you can stop hatred is by fighting back at some point. There are just simply some people who can’t or won’t respond to kindness and integrity except to see it as weakness. If they are intent upon hurting us and destroying the country, we may well have to defend ourselves in not so nice ways. They want us dead. They do not care how we get there. Being good isn’t always a matter of clean hands. Had I kept doing that I would be dead right now, very dead. I’m not sure anymore where we’re headed, a feeling of no stability or secure futures is changing people, anxiety is awful, and it makes us judge everything from fear and we don’t make great choices based on fear, or anger.

I picked up an air-fryer a month ago, and have been using it constantly.
It’s 15 minutes from the freezer to the plate to cook frozen fries and chicken strips. The chicken strips go in at 7 minutes.

My Amazon oven took twice the time, and the food was not as crispy.

My second “first” day at work was the day David Bowie died. It was when I decided to stop being what TV news said I should be and started being who I am.

I remember a rather well-dressed buddy of mine (who later came out gay) making a joke about my shoulder-length hair on New Year’s Eve 1979 “In five minutes, you hairstyle will be TWO decades out of fashion!”

I spent most of the 80’s overcoming my hippie tendencies, wearing my hair shorter and losing my jeans and flannel shirts only to find out that I had in fact been a decade ahead of the times.

My hair is too thin to wear long anymore but I have learned my lesson - to thine own fashion sense be true

We’ve all spent the last 4+ years being hated, demonized and threatened by fellow citizens and various cultists. We’ve discovered how many people we know and may have considered friends are at heart bigots with no empathy for those outside their immediate tribe.

Knowing how corrosive hate can be, I’ve tried to categorize my feelings as anger rather than hate. But it’s an easy line to cross.

Turning the other cheek no longer seems an option. Eventually you are out of cheeks to give.

However, teleskiguy has a point. Wishing torture on another human (or rape or death) should not be appropriate in this community (just speaking as a member).

re: #98 teleskiguy

I agree that the discourse had dropped significantly and there are multiple reasons for that…

bad guys continue to be allowed to do bad guy things with little to no repercussions… for example… investigations drag on forever and no one who appears to be involved are ever called to task to answer a jury of peers or even a judge. Small fry are being allowed latitude from certain judges as if they had nothing more than a marginal DUI as a charge.
As if the risk they pose to the government itself doesn’t make them a risk to the public.

Then to watch the left continually be demonized, watch the rhetoric increase on the right accusing us of treason, pedophilia, equating our position on abortion as being akin to murder. They encourage drivers to run over protestors and applaud kids shooting protestors against police brutality.

so the response to all of this has been proportional in my mind, because they have escalated the stakes from one of political differences to one of life-death existence. To not recognize this and accept that we take their words and their attempted legislation as anything other than their heartfelt desires is unwise.

I don’t want our opponents dead, I want them defeated/powerless.

Everyone has their own line. Republicans are OK with extreme abuse of power, so the line is not where it is for us, but a few of them do draw a line at a coup attempt.

For most, that line is probably much further down, way past coup attempts, way past Republicans trying to kill them with COVID, but is probably somewhere before Trump putting their kids in a woodchipper.

re: #145 Hecuba’s daughter

During a phone conversation last night, a girl friend told me that a friend who lives in Arizona was convinced that Sinema was going to switch parties. And that will end the Biden administration faster than anything. No more judges. No more approvals of appointments. No more legislation.

The only thing that gives me a little hope is that she does continue to vote with the Dems on these issues. But we will have to see.

Sinema is going to be a one term senator regardless of which party she chooses.

Both the Democratic and Republican will primary her out of the next election.

Correct. And this isn’t executive privilege especially regarding Bannon who wasn’t a member of the executive branch.

They don’t care what’s real. Unfortunately, thanks to McConnell, neither do a lot of judges.

re: #136 Eclectic Cyborg

In TV news, Netflix is producing a follow-up to That ’70s Show called, you guessed it, That ’90s show.

Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp will return as Red and Kitty Foreman.

In addition to Sam Elliot, Ashton Kutcher, Debra Winger and Martin Mull, it was interesting to watch various “That 70’s Show” alum appear on “The Ranch” on Netflix.

Well, the little brat from Pennsylvania who stole Nancy’s laptop has FINALLY been charged!

A Pennsylvania woman this week was formally charged with stealing Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) laptop during the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.

Riley June Williams, 22, was accused of stealing the laptop out of Pelosi’s office in January and then seeking to sell it to Russians. She was arrested for the alleged crime just weeks after the riot and was formally charged this week, according to an indictment that was unsealed on Thursday.

Williams was also charged with resisting police. As of Thursday, she had not entered a plea, according to CNN.

Lock that brat up. If she won’t produce Nancy’s laptop charge her with espionage since the brat said she was giving the laptop to a Russian!

Why we’ll never get full control of Covid-19:

Anchorage Assembly and mayor battle over proceedings during sixth chaotic night of public comment on proposed mask mandate

Going to a seventh evening. A waste of time as no one’s mind is going to be changed.

The School Board just needs to cut off debate and make a decision that no one will be happy with.

Too many people don’t give a damn about other people.

Why would anyone want to be elected to an unpaid school board to take this sort of abuse.

Notice the Mayor, a trump copy-cat, is a major part of the problem.

It’s nice that he made a positive story about it, but that was no freak accident. A window was down with a dog in the car, and the driver was somehow oblivious when it jumped out and was dragged. I do not like this dog sitter.

I watched. That was an early vehicle for Glenn Howerton, Dennis on It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, one of my favorites.

Now I’m going to have to watch That 80’s Show again. I saw It’s Always Sunny for the first time a couple of years ago, and did not make the connection.

One thing amongst many that our press avoids talking about is why is it that Trump supporters most hesitant or antagonistic to the covid vaccine+why are, among professional organizations mandating vaccines, law enforcement officials the most hesitant or antagonistic to the covid vaccine.

The White House on Friday formally blocked an attempt by former President Donald Trump to withhold documents from Congress related to the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, setting up a legal showdown between the current and former president over executive privilege,” NBC News reports.

Biden admin releases the records.

re: #188 GlutenFreeJesus

When I was little, something from “Japan” was thought of as inferior (especially cars.)

Now, “Japan” is seen as a premium brand.

In regards to knives - because during the era when Samurai were a thing the quality of swords was indeed important. So some Japanese craftsmen became very good at making very good swords.

So I guess some today believe there is a genetic inheritance for knives???

I’ve used a hostel in Asakusa the last couple of times I’ve been (escorting students) and there was a block or two nearby that were almost exclusively kitchen-goods stores. There was no shortage of cheap disposable knives (and other ‘dollar store’ level stuff as well). But we do have a couple of very, very good Japanese knives that we use daily at home that my parents-in-law gave to us.

re: #115 Wendell Zurkowitz ((slave to the waffle light))

I am old enough to remember Nixon (I was 15) and there is no comparison with this ongoing idiocracy

Well, I thought the world was tumbling down at the time of Nixon’s resignation, but August 1974 was probably the worst month in my life, in between my dad wanting a divorce at the beginning of the month, Nixon’s resignation in the second week, starting high school at the beginning of the fourth week, and my mom trying to kill herself on the Friday of that fourth week. That said, Nixon and his gang didn’t try to overthrow the government SO FAR AS WE KNOW. (What sticks in my head from reading Woodward’s first of many books is how Nixon couldn’t get the childproof caps off his pill bottles and would gnaw at them and you know what, I HAD SYMPATHY FOR THE GUY.)

Compare that to me telling my mom on January 6 that Trump and his gang tried to overthrow the goverment. Heckuva thing to have to tell your mother on her 81st birthday.

personally, we here in the Backwoods compound are fans of Japanny Brand knives.
An excellent line of kitchen/chef knives.
