Stop saying the NY case is too small and a political problem. Clinton was charged, impeached on a

charge of sex in the Oval Office with a consenting adult. His crime was lying under oath...not sex. Trump actually paid hush money to a woman to avoid harming his run for President. He wasn't President then, he isn't President now. Indict his ass!

I'm sorry. We the people and the government that represents us need to STOP being afraid of MAGAs'

reaction to Trump and FOX indictments. We either stop this shit now or we will never be able to stop it! Once the bull smells fear, it charges ahead. If the Federal government can't stand up to bullies against democracy it won't be able to stand up against a foreign enemy.

These evil people have infiltrated our government, our politics, our law enforcement, our churches, our schools, our corporate board rooms. RECOGNIZE them and work to get rid of them. DO NOT FEAR THEM. THEY ARE COWARDS. If they break the law be sure to arrest them, charge them, and try them. Fuck the results. We either win or lose but we will not lose them all. There are just too many crimes committed by Trump and his followers that all of them will go unpunished. If Bragg doesn't do his job, some other AG will eventually.

Tucker is lying. They know he is lying. Tucker knows they know he is lying.

None of them give a f**k.

To me, high inflation really only HURTS the poor and lower middle class. It CURTAILS the wealthy's

privilege and play. I do not know one person whose earned or unearned income is over 300,000/ year (and I know five of them with kids in college) who complain about high food prices or even high gas prices except for two who claim Biden is the cause of high gas prices. Not one of them since 2021 has canceled their global cruising, their seats at the super bowls, or stopped their uber high streaming services. Not one has had to deny their middle school child a class field trip or deny their graduating senior a new car. Yet to a man and woman in that circle that I know personally, they complain about immigrants taking jobs (that they themselves do not or would not ever work). They complain about crime that they never have to worry about experiencing thanks to living in red-lined districts and over-priced homes. They complain about taxpayers supporting Medicare, Medicaid and food subsidies. All but one has a live-in or hired nanny. The women despise anyone whom they believe to be the least bit "liberal" so you know they hate Dems, anything HRC, Obama, and now Biden.

How do I know them...because I have three grands with special needs who are heavily subsidized to attend either special needs schools or classes. They have children in those schools and one attends classes that one of my grands. I substitute for my daughter for some meetings and got to meet the women she tells me about. One other of these families is my own extended family who live on the west coast and has little or nothing to do with the rest of us.

It's sad that high prices yield greater dividends for those having unearned income and greater pain for those working for a living or retirees living off of their EARNED Social Security benefits.

"The leader corrupts the followers by telling them lies. The followers corrupt the leaders by

pretending to believe the lies." (Documentary on Jonestown...Hulu).

The MAGAs live in their own little Jonestowns across America. The end is predictable. It may take years but it is predictable.

FOX is a Jonestown.

I just had to listen to the news and peep on CPAC this morning.

I am one who decries listening to the news lately and gives no place to RW talking points. But, alas, I stooped to giving them place today. Now I am all for the most exposure they can get. Put their rudeness and crudeness on full display. Cover everyone of their investigative hearings. Cover their worshiping at the alter of autocrats from around the world as they disparage fairly decent members of their own party who would dare to run for President, challenging the orange fool.

I am convinced that more people really need to seem them in action and listen to what they say and how they say it. Their behavior is the receipt voters need to take into the voting booth with them. If you decide to vote for any one of them after seeing and hearing all of what is going on at CPAC then there is no help for you. You are sick beyond healing.

As Asians and Africans and Mid-Eastern tycoons have their way with US business, the MAGA cry against

"wokeness" Which is their way of screaming "We are anti-black." They will never understand nor do they care that American blacks have much much more in common with them and their poor masses than any POC from around the world. They are literally buying us up and spitting out our middle and lower class citizens. Don't take my word for it, check who owns the neighborhood development or condo you live in. Follow the links to the top.

I just can't help thinking when I see that CPAC crowd on TV: "Scum of the earth"

Certainly scum of the nation. Anyone who can publicly support and revere Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and MTG just have to be the lowest of the low. It just blows my mind that people choose to ignore the immorality of these folks and their lying scamming, scheming
and grifting that actually hurts themselves. But then, I just finished watching the Bernie Madoff story and I shake my head.

We have lost the dream.

Heard from a friend today who is moving to Tulsa as part of this program.


Moving expenses paid plus $500/month stipend for 1st year. $3500 moving expenses.

Too many young people moving away from the mid-west after graduation from college.

In addition, Tulsa and cities like it are trying attract businesses to locate there and occupy their real estate. It appears that many young people want no part of the anti-woke, anti-democracy establishment.

I regard these tax-base deserts as opportunities to turn quite a few red states blue. Thoughts?
