That's what's being heard from House GOPers as they justify their votes against the voting rights bill. According to them, everything at the ballot box is just beauteous and wonderful for people of color. Uh huh.

"Americans are worth investing in."

Joe Neguse, D-CO, just now in closing remarks prior to the votes in the House.

"Americans are worth investing in." In all honesty, I don't recall any Republican voicing that belief. Ever.

Hook, line, and stinker

Being a devoted trout angler I was disappointed when Comcast and a local fishing program parted ways. I’d enjoyed that program since, thanks to covid and climate and COPD, it’s been a couple years since I last fished. So, I surprised myself by watching a bass fishing tourney on some lake in Texas. At one point one of the contestants decided to try his luck fishing under a dock festooned with a big Trump flag. He hooked one, reeled it in, and dropped it on the floor of the boat, earning him a two-minute time out. Then the fish weighed in under the minimum and could not be counted. The fisherman plopped down onto the deck, scowling in the direction of that flag. And I laughed so hard I gave myself a charlie horse.

Are we there, yet?

When are these governors going to be charged as accessories to murder? Because they sure as hell are.

Business is business, right?

It’s probably a good thing that some years ago I left my job at the headstone shop. Were I still there, I’d probably get fired for handing out business cards at anti-vax/mask rallies, especially where parents are protesting school mask policies.

I'm wanting to respond to someone who limits their research to "duckduckgo". Anyone familiar with that engine?
