Finally a 1/6 case sentencing that makes sense to me. Nearly 7 years

Buy the ticket take the ride. Hope you enjoy jail asshole.
From the New York Times via


A Texas man who joined other rioters at the U.S. Capitol trying to break into the Speaker’s Lobby, where a woman who was a part of the mob on Jan. 6, 2021, was fatally shot by police, was sentenced on Tuesday to nearly seven years in prison, the Justice Department said.

The man, Christopher R. Grider, 41, of Eddy, Texas, had also tried to shut off the electricity at the Capitol, pressing buttons on an electric utility box while yelling, “Turn the power off!” according to prosecutors.

Grider, who operates a vineyard in central Texas, pleaded guilty last year to entering a restricted area and unlawfully parading at the Capitol, his lawyer said. He went to trial on seven other charges, including civil disorder and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., convicted him on all counts.

American Airlines sucks

I don’t know why I bother flying at all

10 hour flight delay in STL, and at 2 am they finally delay the flight until 9am. At this point, I will sleep in the airport but I am watching a young mother try to find a hotel at 2am for her and her two young children. American is not helping her at all. I am trying to find a hotel with an airport shuttle she can use

Strange day on Capitol Hill

Parents of one of children killed in the Parkland shooting were arrested for disrupting a congressional hearing. Called out of order by the Republican chairman. And on the same day, the mother of Ashli Babbitt had a one on one audience with the Speaker of the House.

The world is turned upside down.

Hugo Lowell on MSNBC

Each time I see this young reporter speak I am amazed. He is now 23 years old. He started reporting on the insurrection as a 22 year old kid. He has great contacts, writes well and has amazing poise on TV. At 22 I was an asshole and at 23 not much better. This young reporter continues to impress me each time I see him or read his articles. I subscribed to the Guardian to read his work.

House GOP did not tell Raskin to remove head covering

This is just one reason that Twitter Sucks. The lie spreads quickly.

In a Tuesday tweet, Punchbowl News reporter Heather Caygle wrote that Raskin had received a standing ovation in a House Democratic Caucus meeting after saying he’d push back on Republican efforts to make him remove his headwear. “And I will make them take off their toupees,” Caygle quoted Raskin as saying.

Jacob Wilson, a spokesperson for Raskin, told the AP in an email that Raskin “was responding lightheartedly to a hypothetical question from a colleague” at the caucus meeting. According to Caygle’s tweet, he was asked “what he would do if Republicans made him take off his headwear on the House floor.”

Caygle clarified in a follow-up tweet that Raskin said no House Republicans have spoken to him about hat rules. Caygle declined further comment when reached by email. Wilson said the Democrat “has received nothing but support and encouragement from all of his colleagues and leaders on both sides of the aisle.”

Reminder, tomorrow is the day that a judge will sentence Insurrectionist Sick Fucks Khater & Tanois

Julian Khater and George Tanois are scheduled to be sentenced. They are the sick bastards who are caught on film in a chemical attack on USCP Officer Brian Sicknick hours before his collapse and soon there after death. Because of the DC Medical Examiners finding (which makes no sense to me but I am not a doctor) they were not charged with murder, but their actions led to the death of a healthy 42 year old police officer.

Hopefully the Judge hits them with the longest sentence he can and sends a message that it not ok to attack police officers defending American Democracy. These stains on American Democracy came to the Capitol intending to attack, they did and Brian is now dead.

I hope they get the longest sentence possible and that their time in jail breaks them. No matter what, Officer Sicknick is not coming back. His family is now deprived of his company and love forever.

Some day they will rot in hell, but until then, I hope they rot in jail.

This could be the white puff of smoke.

This is the first vote with a real chance of electing a speaker.

Why I love this President

His tweet after a tough loss for a team of young men.

Fellas you made us proud. We get up and keep going.

Here is to a bright future and 2026 back here at home.

If Trump was still in office we would have seen something like “I don’t like losers”
