Dr. Fauci turns 81 on Xmas Eve. Time to change the name of Columbus, OH to Faucitown, OH.*

We need to: honor this great man, be honest about our our history, and "own the right wing."






Born Anthony Stephen Fauci

December 24, 1940 (age 80)
New York City, U.S.

Happy starving Northern Europeans getting saved by the Wampanoags and then getting wiped out day.



This tribe helped the Pilgrims survive for their first Thanksgiving. They still regret it 400 years later.

Long marginalized and misrepresented in U.S. history, the Wampanoags are bracing for the 400th anniversary of the first Pilgrim Thanksgiving in 1621

Long marginalized and misrepresented in the American story, the Wampanoags are braced for what’s coming this month as the country marks the 400th anniversary of the first Thanksgiving between the Pilgrims and Indians.

But the actual history of what happened in 1621 bears little resemblance to what most Americans are taught in grade school, historians say. There was likely no turkey served. There were no feathered headdresses worn. And, initially, there was no effort by the Pilgrims to invite the Wampanoags to the feast they’d made possible.

For the Wampanoags and many other American Indians, the fourth Thursday in November is considered a day of mourning, not a day of celebration.

Because while the Wampanoags did help the Pilgrims survive, their support was followed by years of a slow, unfolding genocide of their people and the taking of their land.

Happy Thanksgiving

But really I am thankful for President Joe because he protected this on his first full day on the job. The Copper
River and its Watershed along with where it goes into the ocean, Bristol Bay, Alaska. (The biggest source of wild
run salmon in the world.)



President Joe Biden protected this. Bears Ears/Grand Staircase-Esclante. To me, best POTUS ever





BTW TFG wanted to develop these lands for mining, oil, and gas drilling.

President Biden will reinstate and slightly expand the original 1.3 million acre boundaries of Bears Ears National Monument in southeastern Utah. The size of the monument had been cut by about 85 percent by former President Donald J. Trump.



The Byrds, "He was a Friend of Mine."



I will always think that one of the reasons for JFK's killing was he had figured out that Vietnam
would never be won and he was starting to pull us out. Funny, how Dick Nixon, GW Bush, Howard
Hunt, and some of the same Cubans from Miami, FL that later on were arrested breaking into the
Watergate in 1972 all were in Dallas on 11/22/63.

I had my last fresh sugar snap pea 2 weeks ago ... the vines kept growing until about 5 days ago ...

... but the flowers stopped producing fruit in late October because the pollinators had gone to
bed for the winter aka they had died.

Sugar Snap Peas hints:
Soak peas in water for about 2 days and plant outside in mid to late August where another crop
is done for the year such as sweet corn and or potatoes.

If it is very hot make sure the young plants get watered.

Give them some strings or netting to climb up.

Protect the young plants from rabbits.

Eat 'em fresh from the vine every day starting in late September.

Hope for a late frost.

Good in the spring too.

I like the Amish Snap Peas from Seed Savers Exchange Decorah, IA



Please don't rise to their bait. Expect to see and hear lots of "We own the libs, Gun control ...

... is hitting your target," and "Nothing is as sweet as a liberal's tears" crap. Putin was very
successful in helping to fracture America along racial and political lines by installing Trump
into the White House and now the right wing will try to compound our hurt by trying to rub
that injustice in Kenosha, WI in our faces. Remember they are celebrating cold blooded murders
by a very sick person and that kind of toxicity hurts the person spreading it more than it should
hurt you or I.

Do not play the GOP/right wing's game of social disruption, lies, and intentionally spreading a deadly
virus so the minority can control the majority.



Can the DoJ go after Rittenhouse on a civil rights charge?

This seems so unfair.

Jesus God

How could this be? Our country might very well be over. This is as bad as it gets.

The riots are gonna be huge. The right wing might very well get their "race war."

Fucking Reagan had to kill the fairness doctrine and people's brain have been turned to mush.

Joe Biden is the best POTUS I have ever seen.

He has protected one of the world's great rain forest in the Tongass, gave protection to Bristol Bay and the Copper River
River Watershed and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska, protected the Grand Staircase Escalante/Bears Ears
lands in Utah, stopped Trump's idea to drill for oil and gas in the Chaco Canyon area in New Mexico, and reinstated
President Obama's Marine National Monument in the N. Atlantic which will preserve and protect wild fish stocks for generations.
