It may have been a mistake, but I just signed up for the Heritage...

Foundation's online Guide to the Constitution.

Didn't use my real name, of course, but just had to see what they say about it.

I will do what I can to avoid damaging anything when I read parts of it, but it does pay to know the enemy.

Hi Ohio! Crossposted from GD-- you got a live one in Josh Mandel...

https://www.rightwingwatch.org/post/josh-mandel-falsely-claims-us-postal-service-is-unconstitutional-vows-to-eliminate-it/

(If it's just one sentence, does it count as a paragraph?)

“In this country right now, we’re in a fight,” Mandel said. “We’re in a fight against the radical left, who are trying to take away our guns. We’re in a fight against the secular left, which is trying to take God out of all aspects in our life. My feeling is we shouldn’t be watering down our Judeo-Christian values; we should be doubling down on those Judeo-Christian values and instilling God in all aspects of the classroom, of work, and of society.”

“When I get to Washington, I’m going to make decisions with two documents in hand,” he added. “With the Bible in one hand and the Constitution in the other.”


Following his remarks, Mandel took questions from the audience, including one from an attendee who called for the abolition of the U.S. Postal Service because he was upset about having “to wait for our neighbor to bring our mail over.”

Mandel sympathized, falsely claiming that the existence of the U.S. Postal Service is unconstitutional and vowing to work to eliminate it if he’s elected to Congress.

“I agree that [it’s] completely incompetent and could never stand up in the private sector,” Mandel said. “But there’s a bigger issue here. And this is what I’m going to do when I get to Washington: I’m going to post on the wall of my office the United States Constitution, and right next to it, I’m going to post an organizational chart of the federal government. And for every agency, sub-agency, bureau, department—all these departments we’ve never even heard of in the bowels of the federal government—I’m going to work with people like [Sen.] Rand Paul and [Reps.] Thomas Massie and Jim Jordan and others to try to eliminate all these departments that are never called for in the Constitution.”

This week 6 people not far from here died from cocaine laced with fentanyl, and the dealers...

have been found and are on ice.

They will most likely be charged with manslaughter on top of the drug charges, but there's a push to charge dealers with homicide if they kill their customers.

Been seeing this forever on clickbait sites and finally found out what it is...



Not what I thought. (Although I'm, not sure what I thought, actually)

It's a Japanese wrinkle remover. Works on your face muscles to tighten them. Called the Face Slimmer. Anyway, that's what they say.

Riiight... Just like this is for relaxing those tense neck muscles:

I am even more lost now than I was when I last posted about Afghanistan...

As I once said, there are normally many meetings, with lots of discussion and disagreement over something this big. Eventually, a decision is made, for better or worse.

Every five minutes the news changes. No shortage of bad news, but a vast shortage of decent news.

Somehow, the Taliban seems to be letting people get to the airport, even opening routes, but still the screaming goes on about how no one can get there.

Border crossings? Anyone watching for an exodus into Iran or Pakistan? Just pix of assholes hanging off of airplane wheels.

The Taliban of 2021 is not the Taliban of 2000. They seem to have learned that wildly chopping off hands and heads does not help their cause.

But all the reporting is about an hysterical population terrified of Taliban, and how no one can get out. No mention of ID and visa problems getting our employees out. And no serious look at whether or not they really have to fear the Taliban this time.

The whole thing is a mess, and most of the press isn't helping to clean it up.

Was up at the VA for a Cscan and saw a bunch of vax signs, so I asked...

about a booster.
