The Cornfield Resistance Podcast is antivenom medicine against Fox News for me.

The Apollo 12 reboot
Lincoln Project's nearly unbroken record of winning elections for Republicans
Strategic Focus of the Democratic message for Conservative areas
Fragile white women voters' trigger word
Surprise: Voter fraud claims go away when Republicans win

Stop the GOP Taliban

and My Body My Choice is what I put on my picket sign for the Women's March today. Anybody else going? I would love it if you all post pictures on DU. I am not able to post pictures but I would love to see all of yours. Hope we have a big turnout. Usually the media just ignores women's marches and women's issues, but, like E Warren, nevertheless, we persist.

Any lawyers out there?

Can state tax dollars really be used to pay bounty to entrap people helping a woman seek abortion? Are there any other instances where state tax dollars are used for bounty? Is human bounty hunting still legal?

Go Teflon Joe!

I am so grateful for Biden's steady hand at the wheel, boldly steering us out of this 20 year long quagmire. The path forward is bound to be rough but we are paving a new path forward toward peace and prosperity. Onward.

Red State Covid Denial

I believe that there is, most likely, very serious under-reporting about the number of deaths from Covid-19 in red states. The first example of glaring ignorance about Covid-19 was my 12 year old niece. She was laid up for several weeks in June with a full body rash that included a very swollen tongue. She was taken to the ER for treatment twice at Methodist Hospital but was never tested for Covid-19. I asked if they were going to get her tested and mentioned that rash was a symptom of Covid-19. Apparently, her insurance would not pay for treatment so a test was never done.

In the second example, it seemed that Republican members of my family were going out of their way to deny that Covid-19 is a threat. Last night at my 59 year old cousin's funeral, I mentioned that I was in shock and had no idea that he had been seriously ill. The family repeatedly said that he died of natural causes. However, the story I got from another cousin, who is a respiratory therapist at the Hospital he was in, said he had had been hospitalized for Covid-19 last month and was on oxygen for a while. He got better and returned to work, when he suddenly died.

Is anyone else in Red States seeing this kind of orchestrated denial of reality?
