RBG dying helped Susan Collins

I see that Collins is in the news again, 1. for not supporting the abortion bill and 2. Endorsing Lapage for Governor…that made remember that she shouldn’t even be a senator anymore and ponder how in the hell did she win….and it got me thinking, she was able to cast a no vote on Barrett to show her “moderate” credentials a week before the election and was able to sway voters.

One of my neighbors died a couple days ago from Covid

Not a direct neighbor, but one a few houses down. And unfortunately I don’t have any sympathy. For one, he always seemed like a jerk in addition to being a hardcore Trumper. His BIG truck was littered with the typical right wing bumper stickers (Trump 2020, one with a gun and something along the lines of try to take it, a pro life sticker, of course the blue lives matter sticker, etc…)…..they threw a few parties at their house during this pandemic with a whole bunch of guest….he kept his Trump flag up until February (waaay after the election)…..so when his wife posted on the neighborhood Facebook that he passed away, the first thing I thought of was Covid, so I strolled to look at her previous post in the group and there was one last week about him being on a ventilator (so my assumption is that it was Covid)……..what really irks me about these type of people is that they are always talking about personal responsibility and how people need to fend for themselves, but guess what, this guy had no health insurance or life insurance so now his wife his ‘begging’ for money on Facebook to cover medical bills and burial with a link to PayPal (weird, I didn’t even think PayPal did stuff like that…it’s almost like a go fund me page)

If Elder thinks that the recall election is rigged

Then if he comes out on top on question 2 wouldn’t that also be rigged? Can you imagine arguing that one part of the election is fake, but the other part is real.

So Republicans (and others) think Milley committed treason

No he didn’t; He obeyed his oath.

I ___, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God. (Title 5 U.S. Code 3331, an individual, except the President, elected or appointed to an office of honor or profit in the civil service or uniformed services)

Why is Twitter allowing this

This is just a work around on his Twitter ban, and these statements are getting bolder and bolder. This last one is the main reason he was banned in the first place…

Edit- if you have twitter, then you need to report this tweet

Turned on the tv to watch my Buckeyes

And the fake patriotism is nauseating…as much as the other side likes to tell athletes to shut up and just play ball, the same can be said about the over the top nationalism

Anyone hear about that South Carolina lawyer who was shot months after his family was murdered

So I was perusing CNN’s website and saw this story on him and thought the whole thing was strange. It was about him checking himself into rehab and resigning from his law firm after being shot and being accused of embezzling money.

https://www.cnn.com/2021/09/07/us/alex-murdaugh-south-carolina-attorney-rehab/index.html

So I did some googling on his name and the story got even stranger. Not only was his wife and son murdered months earlier, but the family is tied to three other deaths….this is like one of those 1990’s true story murder mystery movies that the networks use to air.

This Bill Maher take is so stupid

He is essentially saying that people fighting oppression and tyranny over here should be grateful that we don’t live in Afghanistan because it’s worse there. No! why can’t you be against both….that’s like saying that if someone is getting slapped in the face, but someone else is getting stabbed that the person getting slapped should be grateful because the person stabbed would love to be in their position. We should want better…and why is he comparing the US to Afghanistan…the comparison should be between the US and other western countries like Canada, New Zealand, Germany, Sweden, etc

Ralph Nader voters, Democratic voters not voting in 2010 and 2014, Jill Stein

Are contributing factors on why abortion rights are in danger.

Edit - oh, and Ginsburg not retiring when she should have

California recall and VA Governor election

If Newsom and McAuliffe both lose

Media -this is not a good sign for the Democrats, they are in bad shape for 2022

If one loses

Media - this is not a good sign for the Democrats, they are in bad shape for 2022

If both win

Media - yeah, they won but it was closer than it should have been… this is not a good sign for the Democrats, they are in bad shape for 2022
