Does Garland have the full, unredacted Mueller Report?

Can members of Congress see it now?

A list of things that dont actually exist but are alive and well thanks to cons...

I will start, please add on:

1. Voter ID being legal

2. Cancel Culture (why is accountability called something else?)

3. Violence by BLM

4. Antifa (was gonna say violence by Antifa, but there is no such organization in the first place)

No Rodney, I dont think we can, sadly...


I was visiting my son last couple of days for the first time in almost 2 years because of Covid, I was dying inside not having seen him. I had a heart scare and wasnt sure if I would see him again before I died, as I feared another heart attack (doing better now, got a stent, my 3rd, I should be good now as long as I do my exercise and watch my diet, yes I can still eat pizza, just not all the time .)

We both love Quentin Tarantino movies, especially "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood" and "Django Unchained", among others.

We watched them together last night and during Django we repeatedly looked at each other and said we were back to those days, with trumpers Maga, GOP, etc.

They want slavery again, sure as I am sitting here typing on an LG laptop.

They want "Mandingo" fighting again. In fact that disgusting practice helps explain why so many ignorant white folks are overly afraid of Black men, these days. Why cops shoot first, if it is a Black man, all too often.

Yes, I know Tarantino is controversial. Using the "N" word the way he does in his scripts and his obvious misogyny. But I admit I like the movies.

It is a LIE that logging would help prevent forest fires or spreading of fires.


Myth #1: Regularly logging forests prevents forest fires

A common assumption is that logging, or removing some trees, would prevent fires. In fact, many forest experts say that logging is ineffective. This is because the tree remnants left over after logging, such as stumps and branches, provide a super-fuel for fire – one that is even drier (and more flammable) in the absence of a forest canopy.

My closest friend is former hotshot Captain, firefighter, USFS.

I was telling him how I believed that logging might reduce fires, he assured me no, not at all.

Power companies use this as an excuse.
