so when the movie, "The Trump Insurrection" comes out

Who should play the roles for Guiliani, Princess Ivanka, Meadows, Ted Cruz, and Trump of course?

So what's the REAL reason that Manchin and Sinema won't allow a filibuster careve out?

Surely it's not really about preserving the senate tradition. That reason is BS. Why do you think they are participating in the GOP obstruction to suppress the vote?

it's all that dark and corporate money

We simply must outlaw all that dark and corporate money. It's goal is to minimize the taxes and health and safety rfegulations of corporations. Why do working people v ote against their own interests? Because the oligarchs and corporations fund vast propaganda messaging that people of color will replace them, and women will no longer be controlled by men, and guns will be taken away, and public schools will teach children to be socialists, and churches will pay taxes, and Jews will run everything etc etc etc.

Canada no longer allows corporate campaign contributions. We should do the same. Corporations are not people.

a reminder about Merrick Garland

Merrick Garland's investigation of Timothy McVeigh, Terry Nichols, and the Unabomber had zero leaks before indictments, 100% convictions, and no turnovers on appeal. So there's hope yet that we'll see the liar in charge do a perp walk yet for conspiracy to foment an insurrection.

Is there a fed statute of limitation on conspiracy to foment an insurrection?

just curious, because it seems like it's taking forever to indite the conspirators

Have a Happy New Year

Hi Precious Ones.

I'm walking into 2022 with a clear heart and mind. If you owe me, don't worry about it - you're welcome. If you wronged me, it's all good - lesson learned. If you're angry with me, you've won. If we aren't speaking, its cool (I love you and I wish you well). If you feel I wronged you, I apologize. Life is too short for all the pent-up anger, holding grudges, and extra pain! Reach out to me if you care to talk about it, and if you don't (I tried). Here's to 2022!

Spread kindness, positivity & forgiveness! Love to all.
You have my permission to copy and paste this message wherever you like, because the message is pretty SPOT ON. And if this message doesn't encourage or agree with you that's fine too!

Every good wish possible for a Healthy and Happy New Year! 🕊.

We are one.

4 Immeasurable Thoughts

May all beings be happy and have the causes and conditions for happiness.

May all beings be free of suffering and free of the causes and conditions of suffering.

May all beings rejoice in the success, happiness, and well-being of others.

May all beings rest in the equanimity of no attachment and no aversion. l


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Mark Meadowss is dumber than a doorknob

He left a trail wider than a 4 lane highway about his sedition and conspiracy to insurrection. Hopefully the evidence of his crimes will ensnare all the congress critters, who colluded and participated with him.

Evil and troubles galore befall on anyone, who delusionally thinks that latching on to Trump's coattails will be advantageous. Sow the wind; reap the whirlwind.

It doesn't matter

It doesn't matter.
It doesn't matter when life begins.
It doesn't matter if it's a fetus or another human being.
The entire argument is a distraction, a red herring, a subjective and unwinnable argument that could not matter less.
It doesn't matter whether we are talking about a fertilized egg, a fetus, or a baby, or a 5 year old, or a Nobel Prize winning pediatric oncologist.
NOBODY has the right to use your body against your will, even to save their life, or the life on another person.
That's it! That's the argument.
You cannot be forced to donate blood, or marrow, or organs, even though thousands die every year on waiting lists.
They cannot even harvest your organs after you die without your explicit, written pre-mortem permission.
Denying women the right to abortion means we would have less bodily autonomy than a corpse.

Effects of School Shooting

I am quite unsettled by the Crumbley school shooting. How many lives have been ruined, disturbed? I suspect that a lot of blame rests on the Cavalier and depraved indifference of the parents. Clearly the kid was deeply disturbed. Were the parents so self concerned that they neglected to notice their son was deeply depressed, feeling confused and hopeless? geeezzz! Did his parents seek help or counseling for that boy? Who buys a pistol as a Christmas present for a teenager? I can see buying a hunting rifle that is kept in a locked gun case and used only with supervision at a gun range or out hunting. But a pistol, loaded with bullets? No way.

And now that boy has ruined his life. Ruined his parents' lives. If there are siblings, they'll go into foster homes. How swell will that be? Ruined the lives of the victims' families. Disturbed all the kids in that school and their families. Ditto the larger community of that city and county. And the wider community of millions of people who learn about the event thru the news. All because his parents thought it was ok for a teen to have unsupervised access to a pistol, a loaded pistol.

I hope each parent will sit in a small gray cell for decades and decades with nothing to do but contemplate how they got themselves there.

May all beings be free of suffering, and free of the causes and conditions of suffering.
