Ironically, one of Trump's superfans was killed in a wreck because he wasn't wearing a seatbelt.

Just finished reading Michael Bender's book. He followed some of Trump's Front Row Joes throughout and one of the leaders was killed in a wreck on the way home from a Trump rally. Killed when he was ejected from the vehicle.

A southwestern Minnesota man whose passionate support for President Donald Trump took him to dozens of political events around the country and recently to the White House was killed in a highway crash while returning from a political celebration in Florida.

Randal J. Thom, 60, of Lakefield died in a collision shortly before 4:30 p.m. Monday on Hwy. 169 north of St. Peter, the State Patrol said. Thom was driving his minivan south and hit a pickup truck that also was heading south, the patrol said.

Evidence of recent alcohol use by Thom was detected at the scene, according to the patrol. Thom was not wearing a seat belt, the patrol added.

The other driver, James A. Mollenhauer, 67, of nearby Le Sueur, survived his injuries and was taken to a Mankato hospital.

According to Bender the "evidence of recent alcohol use" was numerous unopened cans of beer in the wreckage. Thom's FRJ buddies think they were just what was left in his cooler as he drove home.

Ken Paxton's criminal case can be heard in his hometown of Collin County, after appeals court refuses to reconsider

THE TEXAS TRIBUNE -- Attorney General Ken Paxton's securities fraud case back to tried in his home county in North Texas, an appeals court affirmed Thursday when it denied the prosecution's plea to reconsider the decision.

The 1st Court of Appeals in Houston denied a motion by prosecutors to hold a hearing of the full nine-justice court to review the decision made by a three-justice panel of the court in May to move the case from Harris County back to Collin County, where Paxton lives. The order avoids further delays in the six-year-old criminal case against the sitting attorney general and returns the case to what is seen as a friendlier venue to the two-term Republican incumbent.

I've been keeping an eye on the numbers for Brazos County, where Texas A&M is,

ever since someone posted a video from Saturday’s game. Packed stadium, some singalong where they link up with arms over the shoulders of the people on each side and sway back and forth. Hope that song was worth a trip to the hospital.

That's screaming out for some Foghorn Leghorn.

Hit the road, hacks, and don't you come back no more, no more

A good Daily Kos story on this: When the Religious Right was pro-choice

The Southern Baptist Convention’s president at the time of the Roe ruling, Dallas First Baptist Church preacher W. A. Criswell, celebrated the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling by taking the time to write that he was pleased. “I have always felt that it was only after a child was born and had a life separate from its mother that it became an individual person, and it has always, therefore, seemed to me that what is best for the mother and for the future should be allowed.”

To be fair, at the time of the Roe decision there were a few, very few, evangelical extremists who only mildly criticized the ruling. For the most part “the overwhelming response was silence, even approval.” In particular, evangelical fundamentalists “applauded the decision as an appropriate articulation of the division between church and state, and between personal morality and state regulation of individual behavior.” W. Barry Garrett wrote in the Baptist Press that, “Religious liberty, human equality and justice are advanced by the Supreme Court abortion decision.”

During a symposium sponsored by the Christian Medical Society and the so-called “flagship magazine” of the entire evangelical movement, Christianity Today “refused to characterize abortion as sinful, citing individual health, family welfare, and social responsibility as adequate justifications for ending a pregnancy.”

It took a full six years (1979) for the religious right leadership to abandon its pro-choice position and summarily obey the Vatican, the Heritage Foundation and its so-called “Moral Majority” founder Paul Weyrich. The religious right extremist Weyrich convinced evangelical clergy to “seize on abortion as a Republican cause célčbre and rallying cry to deny President Jimmy Carter a second term.”

Synchronicity! I was just looking at some on Amazon.

Clicked on them because I liked the name, but they were getting mixed reviews. Might try some now. Thank you.

Since he's such a big fan of the song, may I suggest....

Woohoo! Jeans AND Covid. The land of the free, baby.
