About Me

Philadelphia Eagles fan

Journal Archives

He is a Phillies fan and was known to go to home games. Would love to see him there now and let him

know what we think of his moronic opinion. Off subject, in the early 80ís I spent a semester at American University and our class ha the opportunity to watch SCOTUS arguments then about 8 of us were invited to meet Justice Blackmun in his chambers. Needless to say he was a class act. He wouldnít discuss Roe but it was quite an experience visiting a member of SCOTUS in their chambers which was spectacular. Also met with Giuliano when he was #2 or #3 man at DOJ. He quoted statistics about the high percentage of crimes are committed relating to drug sale/use. That prompted me to ask the obvious question why donít we legalize and regulate the illegal drug trade to which he had no good response.

A bit off topic but I have become addicted to Turkish historical series. The shows can be found on

You Tube and by googling Turkish shows. The acting is as good, if not better, than American actors. Each episode runs 2-21/2 hours without commercials and one series has about 169 episodes. The historical dramas tell the story of the creation of the Ottoman Empire from a tribe to the end of empire after WWI. I have learned a great deal about entire region the encompassed the Ottoman Empire which is relevant today especially in the Balkans and Middle East. Itís subtitles but easy to follow. As I watched this clip I immediately recognized the actors were speaking Turkish. Anyway, itís great television for those who are interested. The series about Suleiman The Magnificent, Sultan Abdul Hamid II, and Ertrugal were all top notch. Some shows can be found on Netflix. Google watch Turkish Tv series or Kayifamilytv.com and many other sites where you can watch the shows free. Also, I have a much better understanding of the Islamic Faith after watching these shows.

What is somewhat clear is that the Facebook technical people on the front lines were

pissed and tired of Facebook talking the talk but not doing more. Moreover, I just read an op-Ed by a computer science college student in the Phila Inquirer. The author was a female who got hooked on Tik Tok during the pandemic. As she explored Tik Tok especially the cooking videos she noticed the algorithm taking her to places she would have never ventured like videos by fitness people who count every calorie as an example. She became obsessed by this body culture she never knew about and found herself hating her body and turning to purging after eating. She equated it to someone on Facebook reading a fringe right wing article that next directed people to places they would usually never look like Q sites thus driving people down the rabbit hole of insanity, disinformation, and conspiracy theories.

Gen. Wesley Clarke said in a recent interview the West may as well arm Ukraine to the teeth as they

are willing to fight Russian forces so better take care of them now rather than later. According to Clarke. Putin wonít stop at Ukraine so we are going to need to confront him at some point so better to do it now than later when American lives maybe in jeopardy. That oped is terrifying. It lays the foundation for the justification for complete genocide of the Ukrainian people under the banner of ďdenazificationĒ. Russians arenít trying to hide their intention to eliminate the country of Ukraine. The op says a separate Ukrainian country is not sustainable. This is pure psycho babble. Putin has lost his mind.

The msm is ethically, morally, and professionally compromised and a slave to ratings and personal

profit. For the most part they sold their soul for a buck. After 4 years of easy stories, lots of people willing to talk, itís much harder to be a reporter or journalist now that we have a real administration. Trump was like crack for journalists, with easy breaking stories multiple times a day. After Trump who wants to do a boring story about a president or administration doing their jobs. Good news doesnít sell so they continue to grasp at the low hanging fruit covering the hopelessly corrupt republicans who never fail to deliver quackery.

Fox has gone too far and there must be a coordinated effort to deal with them. Fox has

done so much harm to this country and it seems as if they can say or do anything with impunity. Itís no longer about the 1st Amendment, itís now more of a national security issue. If Fox were handing out poison pills that damaged a personís mind would our government allow it? Fox has become not only a national security threat but a public health threat as well and should be treated as such. When a company with tens of millions of viewers sets about to sow division and discord within American society with the assistance of a hostile foreign government, just like any other product, doesnít the government have a duty to take action. Fox is an anti-American company that has done more harm to Americans than any other product in American history and I believe mental health experts would agree that Fox propaganda is a public hazard that has caused millions of people to be unable to distinguish between fact and fiction and Jan 6 is just the latest example of the threat that Fox poses to the national security of the USA. Fox has no God given right, nor does the Constitution allow, a media company unlimited power to say or do whatever it wants while hiding behind the 1st Amendment. Until Fox is dealt with our democracy will continue to be in danger.

So befitting these religious freaks who don't know the anti-Christ they faithfully serve. Stephen

King could not write a horror story as good as this. Here we have TFG who is a serial criminal and the biggest traitor in the history of the country who lacks even a scintilla of morality or decency being served by religious fanatics who really believe in their mission. Fox and RW media has really fried the brains of tens of millions of Americans.

Booker misses the point. Hawley has been told that this demagoguery wins elections. Fool the stupid

people, it works. Tell them a there is a zombie trans apocalypse and they believe it. Hawley will say anything his political consultants say will gain votes. Fíen shame because most thinking people see right through his cherry picking facts from cases. CRT-Trans-Replacement-gay democrats will take your assault rifle away itís all coming right at us. We know the playbook so how do we counter attack? Biden gave working people a direct injection of cash to help with the costs of childcare but thatís unimportant compared to the new boogeyman CRT.

Had Brooks released this statement on 1/7/20 I might give him some credit. Too little too late to

jump off the conspiracy bus now. Shameless, feckless, corrupt, racists, spineless, and most of all ďUnAmericanĒ
is the only way to describe the Republican Party. We are living a dystopian nightmare where a once noble and grand democracy is descending rapidly into a kleptocracy brought about by 30 years of right wing propaganda, Christian Fundamentalism, aided and abetted by Russia. Hillary was prescient when she describes a right-wing conspiracy over 30 years ago. And here we are left with a SCOTUS that if not changed will rollback fundamental rights even more for the next 40 years or more. My hope with Hillary was in her SCOTUS picks that would leave our country in good hands for the rest of my life and most of my kids. Now where is the ďhopeĒ to come from, who will save our country. Who is the next Teddy or Franklin Roosevelt to take up the fight for soul of our country. I thought Obama was gonna be that guy and while I love him, I can now see he was far too moderate and decent to do what needs to be done. That is stomping out the Republican Party. Itís gonna come down to either our view of the country or the Republicans view and so far they have proved far more effective at deflecting and diverting the attention of Americans who believe that CRT is really a thing and Democrats are baby killing predators. The spectacle of 1/6 and itís acceptance as ordinary political activism proves that American politics is sick I just hope there is a cure to what is killing our Democracy.

Sad, trifling shit that only base republicans will eat up. That somehow Judge Brown is soft on

child porn based on below guidelines sentencing in a particular case means absolutely nothing. After having throughly humiliated democrats with SCOTUS picks and abnormal political maneuvering republicans cannot
muster enough class and dignity to welcome this distinguished and graceful judge whose qualifications are abundant and obvious. The childish culture war against us ďLibsĒ never stops. They relish the name calling and smears and think itís payback for the way Kavenaugh was treated. And to top it off, the party is headed by a proven sexual predator who no doubt had lust in his heart when his pretty baby teen daughter sat in his lap. My Lord, is there no shame left in these political monsters?
