These used to be "third-rail" issues. For those unfamiliar with the term,...
The third rail of a nation's politics is a metaphor for any issue so controversial that it is "charged" and "untouchable" to the extent that any politician or public official who dares to broach the subject will invariably suffer politically. The metaphor comes from the high-voltage third rail in some electric railway systems.

Home Depot now the biggest corporate donor to 2020 election objectors

Boycott Home Despot!
NOW!


It has been years since I've set foot in one of their stores, and it looks like it will be decades before I do so again.

From Yahoo Finance:
Home Depot (HD) became the new leader through the end of February thanks to a surge of $140,000 last month alone. The company has now reportedly donated $265,000 in total to these lawmakers, dubbed the "Sedition Caucus" by political opponents. All told, 48 of the 147 lawmakers in this group have received money from the company’s PAC.

“No corporation can truly claim to be on the side of democracy while they throw money at the election objectors in Congress who tried to finish what violent insurrectionists started,” Accountable.US president Kyle Herrig said in a statement after the latest numbers came out.

Trucker convoy drivers "peeing their pants in D.C. traffic"

This story brought a smile to my face this morning:

Blaming the mayor for making you pee your pants is ... not something grown-ups do. Welcome to the People's Convoy.

When they said they’d be livestreaming, this isn’t what we had in mind.

The remaining truckers in Washington, D.C., who gathered for a “convoy” earlier this month are apparently having trouble finding places to relieve themselves as they circle the D.C. Beltway.

So much so that they’re peeing their pants with some regularity.

It turns out that the Peephole's Convoy is considering threatening D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and city police officers with of citizen's arrest.

The convoy has been casting about for a raison d’etre since states nationwide have relaxed their mask and vaccine mandates. The truckers’ original cause ― COVID-19 restrictions ― has ceased to be a galvanizing force.

Whether it's the butcher in Moscow.
Or the defeated loser in Mar-a-Lago."

Will history repeats itself? "How an Outsider President Killed a Party"

Happy Presidents Day everyone!

It was summer, and a major U.S. political party had just chosen an inexperienced, unqualified, loutish, wealthy outsider with ambiguous party loyalties to be its presidential nominee. Some party luminaries thought he would help them win the general election. But many of the faithful were furious and mystified: How could their party compromise its ideals to such a degree?

Sound like 2016? This happened a century and a half ago.

Many have called Donald Trump’s unexpected takeover of a major political party unprecedented; but it’s not. A similar scenario unfolded in 1848, when General Zachary Taylor, a roughhewn career soldier who had never even voted in a presidential election, conquered the Whig Party...

...A look back at what happened that year is eye-opening—and offers warnings for those on both sides of the aisle. Democrats quick to dismiss Trump should beware: Taylor parlayed his outsider appeal to defeat Lewis Cass, an experienced former Cabinet secretary and senator. But Republicans should beware, too: Taylor is often ranked as one of the worst presidents in U.S. history—and, more seriously, the Whig Party never recovered from his victory. In fact, just a few years after Taylor was elected under the Whig banner, the party dissolved—undermined by the divisions that caused Taylor’s nomination in the first place, and also by the loss of faith that followed it.

I try hard to avoid wishful thinking, that the GQP will have the same fate as the Whigs. But still, ...
