Is George Santos even a US citizen?

He says that he's "Brazilian-American." Does he have a US birth certificate or naturalization document?

The fake electors scheme is the one that blows me away

And people in states actually signed their names to fake elector rolls that would be sent into the Fed archives? How stupid is that? That's called forgery, among other things.

Undecidedd -- Musk Theme Song

I'm so tired of Musk and his Twitter crap. I deleted my account long ago. Completely hypocritical and unreliable.

Undecided seems like an apt theme song.

Trump's digital trading cards -- I don't get it

Hey I'm an old lady of 75, so I've never heard of digital trading cards. Are there actually such things? If they are digital, how are they traded? If they are merely digital files, what's to prevent someone from simply copying the files?

They are quite ugly, who would spend money on such nonsense?

Sinema thinks this will make her powerful, and it probably will

Dem and GOP lobbyists will beat a path to her door to curry her favor for their pet legislation. Senators from both sides will curry her favor as well. She can compete with Manchin for most important swing vote. This is a power play on her part.

A lack of ethical morality

Secular ethical morality is something that I've been thinking a lot about. That so many people voted for Walker is completely disgraceful. People for whom honor, virtue, integrity, decency mean nothing. It reveals a complete lack of ethical morality.

It's one thing that Walker has limited intellectual capacity. Another that he calls himself a Christian. Beating the crap out of your wife, holding a pistol to a woman's head doesn't seem very Christ-like to me. And neither does telling lies. Is being a Christian nothing more than a label? Is wearing a cross on your lapel the same as wearing a football jersey. Truly the Church has failed us.

The ancient classical Greeks esteemed 4 great virtues: Prudence, Courage, Justice, and Moderation (Self-discipline). Personal honor in living up to these virtues was everything. When was the last time you heard a Republican talk about personal honor? I don't think they even know what it means.
