A personal definition of liberalism.

Trying to define, in a nutshell, what it means to me to be a liberal. This works:

Liberalism is the desire to live in a society where one is surrounded by decent people of good will.

Really, isn't every manifestation of illiberality basically someone trying to stick it to you in some way?

Time to issue honorary Darwin Awards to everyone who dies while willfully unvaxxed.

I say "honorary" because, technically, if you've already reproduced, you're ineligible.

From Wikipedia:

The criterion for the awards states: "In the spirit of Charles Darwin, the Darwin Awards commemorate individuals who protect our gene pool by making the ultimate sacrifice of their own lives. Darwin Award winners eliminate themselves in an extraordinarily idiotic manner, thereby improving our species' chances of long-term survival."

Maybe we should create a new class of officials. We could call them Protectors.

It should be crystal clear that their first priority is to protect citizens and that they sometimes have to place themselves at some risk to do that. Those are the terms of the job. If anyone thinks those terms are unreasonable, don't take the job.

Anyone with a finger on the pulse of the right know how they're dealing with the Chauvin trial?

Have they cut him loose?

It's scary to think that the MAGAts have incoporated the 500,000+ deaths...

...into their world view in some weird way.

If you think now is the time to be happy, celebrate, look forward...

...you’re absolutely right. Go and do.

Not to worry, there’s plenty of us dark-souled people who will remain behind and see that justice is done. We got your back.

Right now I feel like we're all John Glenn in the final minutes of countdown to launch.

This could be really, really good. Sure as hell hope so.

Based on the current reporting, there had to be actual coordinators who planned 1/6.

From what we've seen so far, they're probably numbnuts who were too dumb to cover their tracks.

Conspiracy to assassinate the VPOTUS and Speaker of the House. Don't think Donnie is going to be much help, especially if DOJ doesn't disclose their names prior to 1/20,

I just blocked the email addys and phone #'s of my Trumpite sibs.

I am in no mood to process a post-Trump-departure, "Can we all get along now?" communication.

Spoiler alert: no.

So, if 1/6/2021 was a planned coup, how was it supposed to work?

Disrupting the EC vote counts seems to be pointless -- Congress would just pick it up again in a day or two. Destroying the ceremonial EC ballots would be equally pointless, since there are publicly available copies everywhere.

The only scenario I can see is where there was such bloodshed in the Capitol that Trump could get away with declaring martial law.
