Anyone that's for forced pregnancy should be forced

to adopt a baby.
That’s after they are forced to watch all of the rapes in The Handmaids Tale.

I'd love to see polling on the following question:

Who do you think we will see first through last as President?
1 a married straight white female
2 a married straight non white female
3 a white Christian lesbian
4 a non white Christian lesbian
5 a gay white Christian male
6 a gay non white Christian male
7 a straight white male atheist
8 a straight non white male atheist
9 a gay white female atheist
10. a gay non white female atheist

(Please rank them in YOUR order of happening soonest to latest) OR if you agree with my ordering just say that you agree with my 1 thru 10 ranking.

Any chance the 1/6 Committee or DOJ will subpoena Pence

Why not do it?
He’s a private citizen now.
Let him defy the subpoena. Get that on the record.

Hypothetical DOJ question about Pres Biden

So, just mull this over.
Say, in a few months, the DOJ announces they will not indict Trump.
Would and should Biden consider replacing Garland?
Maybe With someone like Preet Bharara or Sally Yates.
I know this would be terribly off brand for Biden
I know that he has previously said he would stay out of this.
But since then the 1/6 Committee has clearly shown that Trump deserves punishment for SOMETHING…
Doesn’t he? Or is my hatred for Trump clouding my judgment?

Ever tried to explain the Electoral College to a non American?

I have.
They think it’s crazy.
They don’t understand how a candidate could get more (and sometimes many million more) popular votes but still not be elected President.
Our nation is so backwards in so many ways and the current GOP wants to take us back even further.
Sigh 😔

What the RW wants is Gilead from the Handmaids Tale.

If you’ve never seen the show, it’s a takeover of America by “Biblical purists”.
You should watch it, if you’ve never seen an episode.
Just google it to find where it’s streaming that you can access.

"So what", "don't believe it", "who cares", "it doesn't matter" crowd.

So in the last six years, think of all the times that we’ve thought that THIS IS IT.
He’s gone too far for even his most staunch supporters and defenders.
And every time we’ve been wrong.
I’m wondering if there can be ANYTHING that would make at least 25% of his followers leave.
I can’t really think of anything that they would believe and would be so bad to turn them.
It’s past hero worship, cult followings, brainwashing.
It’s a sickness that has stolen so many of the minds of so many of our family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, etc.
I 😢 weep for my country. I really do.

I still hope against hope that the DOJ or the people in Georgia can bring him and many of his sycophantic cronies to some sort of justice or accountability.
I know if you are reading this, that you do too.
Your fellow believer in democracy.

Can you bring a +1 with you to vote?

Here’s my ask of anyone who reads this.
Between now and the November midterms, I am challenging you to find someone that votes for Democrats when they DO vote. However, the person just votes in Presidential years and not the midterms.
I bet we all know at least one person like that.
Your challenge is to get that person to vote in the midterms.
I just accomplished that with a cousin of mine.
Anybody willing?

Will the DOJ subpoena Pence and Meadows.

They are the two biggest fish out there that could put the nail in Trumps coffin, if they were smart enough to turn on him.

Unbelievable take on todays hearings by CNN pundits.

Jamie Gangel and Jake Trapper stated:
Yes, it’s established that Trump was in on the Jan 6 planning.
Yes, he knew about the vigilante groups coming and that they were armed.
Yes, he told them to leave the ellipse and go to the Capitol.
But, then they said “but there’s no real direct link to show his intent for violence there”.

So any legal beagles out there tell if I’m wrong.
If this is the standard to indict someone, would ANY mafia boss ever be prosecuted?

I guess people like Gangel and Tapper only would indict Trump if they found proof where he specifically said that he wanted the mob to storm the Capitol and kill Pence, Pelosi, and any other enemies of his.
