Republicans have only begun their 'cancel culture' by banning books and therefore, ideas. If they

gain any kind of real power in Congress or in the White House again, we can assume that other Freedom Of Speech venues such as the INTERNET will be next in their sites.

TV is mostly already doomed.

Republicans can see how controlling the Internet in places such as China, Russia, Iran and other nations squelches criticism of the government.

Election Denier fuck-ups are falling into the right wing trap and bringing us all down with them.

JOE COCKER With A Little Help From My Friends 1969 Woodstock

By Lennon-McCartney, but technically written by John Lennon with the working title "Badfinger" because his finger hurt while writing this song on the piano. The concurrent band The Iveys, who became Badfinger, signed to Apple Records later.

Re: Ian. Where is DeSantis? We need to push this just as Repukes would

push an absent Dem gov or POTUS.

It’s either GOD punishing FL for voting for Ron or it’s climate change. Either one is uncomfortable for Ron. GQP’ers just might take note.

No matter what DeSantis does, Dems need to push DeathSentence’s failings with hurricane Ian.
