“Because of the timing, our message is being conflated by some as being equivalent to the recent statement by Republican Leader McCarthy threatening an end to aid to Ukraine if Republicans take over.”
To me, that sounds like complete capitulation by Democrats in upcoming elections. I don’t vote for Republicans, but I will not consider voting for Democrats for any reason for as long as I may live. I started cutting down on them in 2003, now it’s down to never again.
Good golly that statement pisses me off. What a dangerous, tepid, bunch of wankers.
It galls me to think about when I watched a recent video from the leader of my religious denomination where she breathlessly said that the last election was the most transparent, free, and fair in history, and that love won.
Another LOL from the New York Times. At least the word “normal” is in quotes, as it should be. Was it normal before, and is that a desired state to which to return?
It’s a good click-bait headline, but I won’t go, so I won’t know about the article. I’ve stopped visiting links to the NYT, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, The Guardian, and others. They are such active performers for the USA’s “Mighty Wurlitzer” that I won’t follow a link for any reason, not even for entertainment pieces, though one could say all of it is entertainment.

My father and I used to like to antagonize each other over politics. I think we both deemed the session a success if we could get the other to crack a little. Sometimes I knew that he had staged things for me when I went for a visit.
One visit, he put the book “Ronald Reagan – An American Life” on the coffee table. I paged through it for a moment and saw him crack a small smile. I just glibly said, “talk about a complete waste of money” as I tossed it back on the table.
Then we ended up in the kitchen where somehow he had procured an autographed picture of GW Bush. He had it on the refrigerator. I don’t know how he got it. I said, “I need one of these for my fridge so I can lose some weight.”
