I hope I don't mess up my 200th post on DU











Foundational work on Jan 6 prosecution

Disclaimer: I know nothing about Merrick Garland except that he was middle-of-the-road enough that Obama thought the Repugs would not block his nomination. I am as impatient and full of doubts about the pace of the DOJ's investigation as anyone here, and still not sure we're ever gonna see any real justice when all is said and done.

Anyway...

I was watching this video: https://www.democraticunderground.com/1017739993

Glenn Kirschner was saying "Sometimes justice seems to take forever, and then it comes all at once."

It reminded me of the time I built a retaining wall at my sister's house. My brother-in-law was very impatient with the amount of time I was taking to make sure each and every one of the first retaining blocks was exactly the way I wanted it - just slightly off level, tilting in toward the area to be filled with dirt. To him, it looked like I was doing nothing (or close to nothing) for days.

The time finally came when I was ready to put the rest of the blocks up. He and another person who happened to be there helped me put the blocks in place; it took maybe an hour or two. He remarked on how fast it happened - where there had been just one layer of blocks, all of a sudden there was a wall.

No real point to this allegory except to say I hope that's what has been happening this whole time - the DOJ has been painstakingly building a good foundation so their case will not eventually crumble and fall, as the retaining wall eventually would if not for the time and meticulous care involved in setting the first layer down just right.

At the end of the video, Kirschner says, "I am so damn ready for the 'all at once' part."

Pretty sure we're all with him on that one.


America is addicted to guns

I know a thing or two about addiction. One thing I know is, before you can recover, you have to hit bottom.

The problem is, everyone's bottom is different. What might be the bottom for one person might not be low enough for someone else.

America, as a whole, must hit bottom before it has a chance to recover from its gun addiction.

I thought Sandy Hook would do it. Sandy Hook didn't do it. Sandy Hook would have done it for any other country, but America is a much tougher case. Knowing that Sandy Hook wasn't our bottom, we can presume that Uvalde is also not our bottom.

I don't know what America's bottom will have to be. I don't want to see what America's bottom will be. Probably none of us do.

But apparently, we don't have the luxury of having that choice.

Don Winslow

I will never understand how @SenatorHawleyMO can be involved in the January 6 insurrection and sell January 6 merchandise on his website and not receive a subpoena from the @January6thCmte.

And why isn't this a bigger media story?

We cannot normalize this insanity any longer.

Defense Sec Austin says “Russia is failing,” and “Ukraine is succeeding,” after visiting Kyiv, adding Ukraine can win, day, and “We want to see Russia weakened to the degree it cannot do the kind things that it has done in invading Ukraine.”

Robert Reich

When oligarchs talk about freedom, beware.

For Jeff Bezos, it means his freedom to set prices.

For Jamie Dimon, it means his freedom to consolidate the banking industry.

For Elon Musk, it means his freedom to set the terms of political debate.

Don't get it confused.

Day 61 of my 3 day war. I lost a dozen generals, French election, a flag ship & more than 20,000 soldiers. It is going according to plan.

A handful of billionaires now have unprecedented control over banking, the food we eat, the health care we can access and, now, the information we receive.

This is what oligarchy looks like.

At long last: the monument “celebrating” the “friendship” between Ukraine and Russia — that was erected by the occupying Soviet authorities in central Kyiv — will be demolished, according to Kyiv mayor Vitaliy Klychko.
