We are going to get there

Today I volunteered at a vaccination sight. We vaccinated 1100 human beings from all walks of life, mostly older folks of course but some younger like first responders. All kinds of people. At least one ww2 veteran. So many men, black and white who were vietnam veterans. So many loving families, wives driving their husbands and husbands driving wives, so many children and grand children bringing their loved ones. Single people. A notable number of Asian kids driving their grandparents. Different backgrounds and languages and car stickers all over the map and everyone just wanting to take care of them and make it ok.

Listen there were some heart breakers who couldn't get the vaccine themselves because they were a year too young and so on, and that sucked. But I came away feeling more hope than I've felt in a while. Yes we need more vaccine and we need it faster. But we will make it. We are good people in this country. We still are, we really still are. We are going to get through this and we are going to make it.

The thing about margarine green

First of all, as my wife just said, "she's a rootin tootin piece of shit."

And I agree.

But here's the thing.

Her "Daddy" owned a construction company in Alphretta, a richer, whiter Atlanta suberb in Fulton County. That's where she grew up. She went to UGA and got her BA in business. In 2002 her daddy "sold" the company in Alphretta to her.

You can tell that she was wanting to become a famous right winger. That whole video of herself chasing Hogg, she was rich enough to just fly to washington and pay for someone to camera for her so that she could act like a right wing news person. That's what she was doing, producing videos of herself to post on the internet to try to become a right wing media person.

That's what she wants. She thinks she is hot stuff. She is nothing more than that mean girl who thinks she is somebody. She's a bully who thinks she is so smart. She is full of herself.

In Georgia, a person is only required to live in the state to run in any district, but she went and bought a condo in district 14 while she was running. All her talk about "in NW Georgia we do this and we do that" is just a load of bullshit she is feeding her sheep. She chose north west georgia instead of her home in the suburbs because she thought she could go up there and manipulate those simple hillbillies. They are her audience. Not us. Not normal mainstream American citizens. Send her back to her echo chamber and get her out of the public eye.

What she wants is attention, she wants to be famous, she wants to cash in on the same thing that she saw sarah palin cash in on. She wants to be a hillbilly beverly. She wants to send out texts about how she is the opposite of AOC and protecting all good rednecks from evil socialism.

That's why we shouldn't give it to her. I won't post about her again, and I encourage everyone to do the same. Don't feed the troll. She is white trash that you wouldn't bother talking to in real life so don't spread her name around. She is nothing to be afraid of, she isn't worth a bit of time.

Man pictured with foot on desk in Pelosi's office is arrested

WASHINGTON — A man photographed casually sitting with his foot on a desk in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office at the U.S. Capitol while a pro-Trump mob rampaged the halls of Congress was arrested Friday, law enforcement officials said.

Richard Barnett, 60, of Gravette, Arkansas, was taken into custody in his home state on federal charges of entering and remaining on restricted grounds, violent entry and theft of public property, according to a Department of Justice official. A spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Arkansas tells NBC News Barnett was arrested this morning and he’s being held in the Washington County Detention Center in Fayetteville, Arkansas, awaiting his initial appearance.

If you want a view of the crazy stuff

these people that raided the Capital believe in, look at the twitter of the woman who was shot during the invasion. I looked at it last night and was really disturbed. I knew that Lin Wood was spreading crazy stuff but had no idea of bizarre. They believe that the evil cabal has forced politicians and others to make videos of them raping a child and then murdering the child. People like Pence and John Roberts. They believe that these videos are used to blackmail these people. And so much more down this rabbit hole. This is a person who was a 14-year veteran of the armed forces who believed and passed along these bizarre theories and ideas. I don't really like looking at twitter myself, just personally, but I am putting the link to her twitter account here.

After that link I will put a link to a business insider page story about it, just for those that don't like clicking on twitters or want a summary-

NOTE - it looks like twitter has removed the Lin Wood tweets

Babbitt regularly expressed support for Trump on social media. While she didn't tweet much herself, she was an ardent retweeter of conservative and right-wing figures, including Michael Flynn and Jack Posobiec, and conservative news sites like Right Side Broadcast News.

On January 5, Babbitt responded to a tweet that read, "A lot of flights into DC are being canceled with no bad weather. The entire world is corrupt."

"Nothing will stop us," she responded. "They can try and try and try but the storm is here and it is descending upon DC in less than 24 hours….dark to light!"

She also regularly endorsed QAnon conspiracy theories on Twitter. In a series of photos posted in early September, Babbitt attended a Trump Boat Parade in San Diego, sporting a QAnon t-shirt, and included the group's slogan in the caption.

The Curse of the Buried Treasure

A good read
https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2020/11/16/the-curse-of-the-buried-treasure/amp

Leominster, in the West Midland area of England, is an ancient market town where the past and the present are jumbled together like coins in a change purse. Shops housed in half-timbered sixteenth-century Tudor buildings face the main square, offering cream teas and antiques. The town’s most lurid attraction is a well-preserved ducking stool, a mode of punishment in which an offender was strapped to a seat and dunked into a pond or a river while neighbors jeered; the device, last employed in 1809, is now on incongruous display inside the Priory Church, which dates to the thirteenth century. Christianity has even older roots in Leominster: a monastery was established around 660 by a recent convert, the Saxon leader Merewalh, who is thought to have been a son of Penda, the King of Mercia. For much of the early Middle Ages, Mercia was the most powerful of the four main Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, the others being Wessex, East Anglia, and Northumberland. In the tenth century, these realms were unified to become the Kingdom of England. Although the region surrounding Leominster (pronounced “Lemster”) is no longer officially known as Mercia, this legacy is preserved in the name of the local constabulary: the West Mercia Police.


On June 2, 2015, two metal-detector hobbyists aware of the area’s heritage, George Powell and Layton Davies, drove ninety minutes north of their homes, in South Wales, to the hamlet of Eye, about four miles outside Leominster. The farmland there is picturesque: narrow, hedgerow-lined lanes wend among pastures dotted with spreading trees and undulating crop fields. Anyone fascinated by the layered accretions of British history—or eager to learn what might be buried within those layers—would find it an attractive spot. English place-names, most of which date back to Anglo-Saxon times, are often repositories of meaning: the name Eye, for example, derives from Old English, and translates as “dry ground in a marsh.” Just outside the hamlet was a rise in the landscape, identified on maps by the tantalizing appellation of King’s Hall Hill.

Mitch Mcconnell statement

Feb 1999


"Time after time, the President came to a fork in the road. Time after time, he had the opportunity to choose the noble and honorable path. Time after time, he chose the path of lies and lawlessness—for the simple reason that he did not want to endanger his hold on public office."

"The President would seek to win at any cost. If it meant lying to the American people. If it meant lying to his Cabinet," he continued. "The name of the game was winning. Winning at any cost."

"He took an oath to faithfully execute the laws of this nation, and he violated that oath," the senator said. "He pledged to be the nation's chief law enforcement officer, and he violated that pledge. He took an oath to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, and he willfully and repeatedly violated that oath."

"I think that the United States Senate has a clear choice," McConnell said at the time. "Do we want to retain President Clinton in office, or do we want to retain our honor, our principle, and our moral authority?"

"For me, and for many members in my impeachment-fatigued party, I choose honor," he said.
