I've got an idea for a cartoon about trump and the house republicans.


Big orange rump angrily rolling toward small cowardly pins of the Republicans in the house.

Trump bowling over the Speaker decision.

With just sleezy jim as the only pin standing.

Where's Lindsey?

He made the first couple of calls to Georgia.

Is he the mouth of the south?

Did he flip?!

His actions or lack there of, after his "wild" speech directing

armed people to "fight"and "Save America", should be a slam dunk! So we can move on from this, and start focusing on the people's business.

Slavery, reparations, and redemption after our current Civil War?

I was watching a silly ghost show on U-Tube about The Wheatlands Plantation in Tennessee. I wanted to research a little bit more after an owner had removed some stones from the land that may have marked the grave of the slaves on this property.

I came across this article written by a family member of the former plantation Kristan Thomason.
"A review and reckoning part 2" July 3, 2022

This is the link to copy and paste in your browser.


[/divWheatlands was second only to George Washington’s Mount Vernon in Virginia in whiskey production. Obviously, the Chandlers weren’t doing this on their own. Family records indicate 188 enslaved persons were laboring at Wheatlands at the close of the Civil War and the University of Tennessee archeology department has located 70 of their graves on the property along with the footprint of six slave cabins.]

[/divThe last heir to live in the house wrote that her ancestor was “known as a good master who didn’t believe in separating families,” and after the war it’s said he paid those formerly enslaved to stay on and work at Wheatlands. But “good master” is itself an oxymoron and sharecropping isn’t the same as freedom.]

We can change our present, if we continue to acknowledge and do better than our history, but first we must know it.

Whatever happen to Lindsey Graham calling Georgia for votes?

Why isn't he charged with intimidation, courerrsion, or electioneering of some sort?

I haven't heard anything about that so far in the J6 hearings.

It's time to leave the Republican party behind

They have held our Country back from innovation, social equity and equality. We need to go on Offense and change the future of this country and the people.

Pack the courts and pass a second Bill of Rights, pass high speed rail, build beautiful green housing, secure healthcare and education for all.

Leave them behind wrapped in their hate, their legacy over the last 40 years is nothing but fighting, blaming, chaos and extraction, destruction and insurrection.

Move forward without them, to create a future of opportunity, and creative innovation that show cases a future United States learning from it's past and showcasing that knowledge into the future. We are better than this.

I'm taking my power back from the bigots and haters, they are not worth our time.

Thanks for reading my morning rant.
