Every man who causes an unwanted pregnancy...

should be prosecuted and sent to prison for being irresponsible and not using a simple condom.
Married men should also be imprisoned for not getting a simple vasectomy and impregnating their wives.

Elon Musk backs 'tight' background checks for all gun sales in wake of mass shooting in Texas

I post this link to demonstrate how ridiculously pompous these billionaires have become. You didn't hear anything about what Elon Musk felt about anything besides his business interests, and frankly, nobody really cared.
Now the 'great' Elon Musk makes a play to buy a social media company, and suddenly everyone's supposed to take everything he thinks seriously.
Totally ridiculous.

"Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk called for “tight” background checks for all gun purchases while also backing gun ownership as a “safeguard” against political tyranny — a day after a lone gunman killed at least 19 children and two adults at an elementary school in south Texas.

In an email to CNBC, Musk blamed the media for giving murderers the attention he believes they crave by covering mass shootings."

Trump loses bid to avoid paying $10,000 per day contempt of court fine

Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday lost an effort to stay a contempt of court order from a New York judge, and as a result still owes a fine of $10,000 per day, according to the state attorney general’s office.

Trump last week was found in contempt for failing to comply with a subpoena from Attorney General Letitia James, who demanded he turn over records she wants for her civil probe of his company, the Trump Organization.

This is a breaking story.

The SCOTUS decision to overturn Roe v Wade can be easily remedied

All it takes is enough people who are disgusted with the republican agenda to show up to the polls in November in such overwhelming numbers none of the GOP efforts to suppress the vote can overcome.

If the Dems have strong majorities in both branches of Congress, they can steam roll new legislation into law.

Will this happen? I doubt it. Until enough people get off their asses, we can expect more of the sane.

Entertaining opening game for the new USFL

Wasn't sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised with the two teams last night. The game was well played and a last minute touchdown by the Stallions to steal a victory. Of course these weren't NFL caliber players, but they were evenly matched, which made for an entertaining game. I'm hopeful three games today will be just as entertaining.

Sarah Bloom Raskin withdraws her candidacy for Federal Reserve board

Sarah Bloom Raskin, President Joe Biden’s embattled nominee to the Federal Reserve, on Tuesday withdrew her candidacy to serve at the central bank, ending a weekslong partisan battle over her views on climate policy, a person familiar with the matter said.

This story is developing.

A friend asked me if I knew where he could find women who scream loudly in bed

I took him to a maternity ward.

If you're sad because you won't have a valentine for Valentine's Day...

Please keep in mind poor souls like me....
who don't even have a ground hog for Ground Hog Day.

Things could always be worse.

Georgia looking good to beat Alabama

Glenn Youngkin's victory proves white ignorance is a powerful weapon

From the outset, it was clear Youngkin would need fervent support from the state’s conservative base, along with the backing of some white voters in Democratic-leaning areas like Loudoun County, to win the race.

Ultimately, his campaign settled on a game plan that seemed to resonate deeply with white voters in Virginia: targeting school lesson plans that address inequality and social justice. Youngkin adopted the conservative strategy of falsely grouping these lesson plans under the label of “critical race theory,” and he promised to ban such teachings “on day one” if elected. Critical race theory is a college-level field of study that’s not taught in Virginia K-12 schools, but it’s become a catchall phrase for intellectually lazy people — many of them white — who want to stigmatize any discussion about American racism.

In the final weeks of his campaign, Youngkin focused almost exclusively on attacking lesson plans about inequality. He hosted multiple “Parents Matter” rallies, where attendees could gather to express outrage over school curricula. And last week, his campaign released an ad featuring a white mother who fought to have “Beloved,” Toni Morrison’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel about slavery, banned from her son’s school district.

The Youngkin campaign discovered that this contingent of angry, willfully ignorant white people was the key ingredient needed to elect a GOP governor in Virginia for the first time since 2009. We can expect more Republicans to try the same gambit as we inch closer to next year’s consequential midterm elections.
