Following up on gun ownership in the United States…

On December 14, I was cleaning my dining room in preparation for home construction to come. I ran late, got distracted and spent more time than I should have doing the work, which meant I ran late getting up to meet my friends for lunch.

Heading back to the office, I turned on the radio and switched to NPR. That’s when I first heard about Sandy Hook. Continue reading “Following up on gun ownership in the United States…”

You Know Who
The Former President

Okay, so I was going to use that title for Alex Jones because, you know, it’s appropriate and stuff, but now I have a bigger fish on the menu. How big?

So big.

Bigly.

HUGE, even.

Supermajority? Sure. Tell me what that is and I’ll believe you.

Supermajority? Sure. Tell me what that is and I’ll believe you.

Today’s critical thinking exercise: Ask any individual who suggests President Obama had a “Supermajority” at his disposal for any portion of his administration exactly what that word means. Continue reading “Supermajority? Sure. Tell me what that is and I’ll believe you.”

Reproductive rights are HUMAN rights…

The Guardian: As the US supreme court moves to end abortion, is America still a free country?

If you’re still reading these posts and you ever voted third party, willfully sat out an election, or told me that this was settled law, I am looking right at you. Continue reading “Reproductive rights are HUMAN rights…”

So way back when, 20 months ago, shortly after the New American Era began, I wrote this: Aftermath (Part 11): It took six years…. Ten days later, I wrote this: Endarkenment (Part 5).

Today, as the country gets ready to lock down again, for what’s the fourth wave in a viral pandemic that carries the -19 identifier because it started IN 2019, we are seeing record numbers of infections, in children and adults, the vast majority of whom haven’t been vaccinated.
