Can we start our own project for a constitutional amendment

to protect a woman's right to control her own body? Put it right up there with our right to vote project.

Getting rid of Roe will not get rid of abortions

Women have been surreptitiously terminating pregnancies for thousands of years. They have jumped out of windows, thrown themselves down stairs, eaten poison, and used coat hangers. Why would that be any different in the 21st century?

Women will drink bleech and bug poison, jump out of windows, and visit Auntie Coat-hanger Katie and Hatpin Hattie. Illegal dirty septic abortions will become a thriving back street business. Women will show up at ERs profusely bleeding and/or deathly pale from drinking poison. But of course the self-righteous assholes don't give a damn about life.

I just can't get over the Waukesha parade massacre

My god, this was a community family event. Not a political rally, or a protest. A family event. High school kids in marching bands. High school cheerleaders waving from Christmas-themed floats. Little kids holding grandpa's hand to see Santa and his elves. Street vendors selling hot coffee and doughnuts.

What was that jerk thinking? Whatever he was fleeing could not possibly have been as bad as what he did. I just shake my head in disbelief at the recklessness and indifference to the harm, pain, and suffering that he inflicted. Where did such a person grow up? Was he raised in a barn without any moral instruction about right and wrong?

Does Wisc have the death penalty? If so, this guy has a cell on death row awaiting him. And now, he has ruined his life also. I just don't get it.

These are very hard times

"These are very hard times. When we feel we are emerging, BAM, another difficulty arises. This is what the Buddha called the suffering of suffering, one suffering upon another. How can we maintain our sanity, let alone joy? Remember others who are suffering in the same way, one after another. Realize as with all things, these sufferings are impermanent. If you can, recognize that we are clearing out negative karma from the past, and rejoice. Finally, all appearances are false. Loosen your grip on a fixed objective reality, particularly of the one suffering, yourself. Emaho!"

--- The 14th Dalai Lama

When does the Gosar censure show start?

I hope it will be broadcast.

Thomas Paine's "The Age of Reason"

OK kids, your homework is to read Thomas Paine's "The Age of Reason." A more cogent argument for freedom of, and freedom from, religion I have not found. Here's a link to a free PDF.

Tx gov Abbot wants to ban books with sexual material

Good grief! When I was a kid, I went to the downtown Dallas library and read on book on how babies were made, because my mother neglected to tell me how babies got in mommy's tummy in the first place.

What you want to bet that Abbot and all those other self-righteous assholes watch porno -- at the very least! What man on this planet doesn't watch porno? No man, that's who. Hell, I'm a woman and I watch porno. It's a billion $$$ business. Pigs will fly before the porno purveyers standby and let porno get outlawed.

What ya wanna bet that Hawley watches porno?

What man on this planet has never watched porno? No man, that's who. Hell I'm a female, and I watch porno.

Damn the Republicans

McConnell has ordered them to vote no on contempt charges against Bannon. I'm not surprised. Their hatefulness and degenerate duplicity is beyond the beyond. It's so apparent that they are neo-fascists, who will do anything to retain and maintain power for themselves and their super-rich backers.

They obstruct everything that would actually be beneficial for the American people, because they cannot afford to let Biden succeed at anything. They are hell bent to label Biden as a failed, weak presidednt.

God forbid that they would vote to spend money on the social safety net. But there are never any obstacles to voting more and more money for the war machine. How many trillions were wasted propping up Afghanistan, and Vietnam before that? They get filled with joy funding yet another new weapons system.

We live in degenerate times.

All contaminated things are of the nature of suffering.

The pro-Fascist Criminal party

That's what the Republican party has become. It's been on journey to reach this point for 40 years. Republicans love Trump because they too are plenty OK with the corruption, thievery, scams, lies of a mob boss. In fact they admire him for getting away with his grifts. Change the tax laws to have plenty of ways to hide money, Great! Cut the IRS budget so severely that it no longer does audits, Super. Legalize PACs that get dark money, Why not? Hey, those Russians have lots of money.
