So, for those members of society who object to the teaching of 'Critical Race Theory'

would 'Congratulatory Race Theory' be an acceptable alternative?

Gotta love The Onion


Adults Film Themselves Attacking Kids for Wearing Masks-

Just like Tucker Said to.
And then they uploaded it to social media.
If anything, the video just shows the adults being complete ignoramuses.

Lara Trump: Americans Living Along Border "Better Arm Up and Get Guns and Be Ready"

Source: Slate

Lara Trump, the daughter-in-law of former President Donald Trump, said that Americans who are living along the southern border need to take their security into their own hands by obtaining firearms and be ready to shoot them....in her appearance on Fox News’ Justice With Judge Jeanine.

“I guess they better arm up and get guns and be ready, and maybe they’re going to have to start taking matters into their own hands. "

There HAS to be some legal repercussions for fomenting this kind of violence. And Fox is as guilty as that trash-in-law.

The different sects of the future Republican Party

Since the Republican Party seems to be breaking into different factions, it may as well codify those factions as the Jewish people have done.
First, you have the Orthodox, who you can identify by the red hats they always wear and lack of face masks.
Then there's the Conservatives. They wear the red hats, but only to the rallies, and they WILL wear masks, but ONLY if the masks say "This is What Tyranny Looks Like".
Then there's the Reformed. They never wear red hats, they WILL wear masks when required, but they are hesitant to get the Covid vaccine because MAYBE it does change your DNA and turn you gay.
There's also Reconstructionist, and I've about run out of ideas, EXCEPT FOR;
The Ultra-Orthodox. Easily distinguishable by, well, you know, ...the horned-helmet guy. Perhaps he can become the Rebbe.

I watched Colbert's The Late Show, and he made an analogy

He said something to the effect of, it's like America's been living in squalor with our unfit parents for the last 4 years, but then Grandpa Joe drove up, and said "Come on, kid, pack your stuff, your going to be staying with me for a while. Sure, it'll be a little boring, but you'll have a nice warm bed and you'll know what every day will bring."
Maybe its just because my grandparents were there for me, or because my wife and I are protective of our grandchildren, but that analogy really resonated with me.
Here's the link to that portion of the show - the 'Grandpa Joe' stuff is at the last couple of minutes.

I've been hesitant to ask this, but any thoughts on Chauvin

committing a slow purposeful murder of a black man, in front of many witnesses in broad daylight, with the intention of launching a race war? I mean, that's the only motive that makes sense to me. I'm immensely relieved that he was found guilty; but there never was an answer to 'why'.

In the Chauvin trial, was the 20 dollar bill ever proven to be fake?

And if it WAS a fake, is there any indication that George Floyd KNEW it was a fake? It just seems that establishing the justification for the initial call to the police would be an important fact for the jury to consider, whether for the prosecution to show George Floyd as a blameless victim or for the defense to further paint Floyd as an habitual criminal.
I tried to research how the 20 dollar bill issue was presented at the trial, and this was the best I could come up with;

If only they were as eager to defend the 15th Amendment

I hear defenders of the 2nd Amendment worry about 'baby steps', that could result in their guns being taken away. If only they were as worried about citizens losing the right to vote.
