This woman really is nuts!
Obviously you can’t use rights against someone. What she means is that QAnonamagas should buy guns and shoot Democrats. Not to protect themselves from being shot, but to use their guns to find Democrats and kill them.
Yes, the First Amendment guarantees freedom of speech, but it does not guarantee freedom to practice terrorism: “the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.”
If this doesn’t qualify as an attempt to intimidate, then please tell me what would!
Leader of the Coup Faces Palace Revolt
While Trump was in office, Faux News Sweetheart Ron DeSantis sucked-up to him almost as much as Mike Pence—and that’s saying a lot! I always referred to him as the “Mini-me” to Trump’s “Dr. Evil.”
But now Florida’s wormy little governor has turned. Trump wants to be the Republican candidate who will steal the 2024 presidential election and become America’s virtual dictator. But DeSantis wants that job for himself. He has betrayed his mentor and is trying to out-evil Dr. Evil himself!
Dear Sen. ___—
I write to urge that you support the voting rights bills about to be brought before the Senate–or, at the very least, that you support allowing them to be openly and honestly debated, and then decided by roll call vote.
Informed persons both here and around the globe are aware that what’s at stake is the survival of American democracy. Some are praying desperately that it will survive. Others (not just in places like Russia or China, but here in the U.S. as well) are hoping that it will wither and die. Paul Weyrich spoke for the latter when he said, “I don’t want everybody to vote…. [O]ur leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down.”
This is not the time to be coy or ambiguous like George Orwell’s Napoleon the pig, who asserted that “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” Weyrich had the courage to make his oligarchic convictions both clear and a matter of public record. We Americans have the right to expect the same courage from our sitting U.S. senators.
Senators often boast that theirs is “the greatest deliberative body in the world.” It’s time now to back that boast. It’s time for US senators to show their fellow Americans and the world whether they agree with Thomas Jefferson that all men are created equal… or with Paul Weyrich and Napoleon the pig that some men are created “more equal” than others.
To qualify as a Republican, one must deny the validity of the 2020 election.
It’s been increasingly clear. Trump has now admitted the reality and acknowledged it formally.
So here’s the blurb:
But the truth is, when you bend over to kiss someone’s foot, it ain’t your “underbelly” you’re exposing!
I was scheduled to be double-scoped (starting north and heading south, and starting south and heading north) at 10:30 tomorrow morning.
I ingested nothing but clear liquids all day. I direct her first of two “prep” liquids at 5:30 this afternoon. At 5:33 I vomited back out everything that was in my stomach.
So I feel miserable, and we’‘ll have to reschedule the scoping. In the meantime I think I’d better schedule an appointment with my allergy specialist to see what all this nauseous about.
Getting old isn’t all bad, but a lot of it is.
Happy New Year.
