When my cats eyes went completely rogue from each other the vet said it was due to a tumor and we had to put her to sleep.

Tumor was my first thought, too. I don’t like being happy about someone else’s misfortune, but since he has no respect for anyone or anything… I’m okay with a tumor as long as it’s discovered before the guy lucks back into the White House.

You are so full of it. Obama is fit and healthy, Trump hasn't had any exercise since his teens. He eats greasy garbage and drinks artificial sweeteners.

I pray Biden wins. Don’t tell me to read the room. That’s what I meant. Isn’t this a safe place?

Expand full comment

It generally is a safe place, however the vast majority of the people who subscribe to Jeff & comment here are either agnostic, or atheist & therefore believe in actually doing something to affect the future rather than praying.

Also I think many of us have become seriously angry with the horrendous cruelty & hypocrisy of religion since so many professed Christians have chosen to throw their lot in with Trump.

Prayer has zero effect on anything. There have been studies. If it makes you feel better, great, but if you think it actually accomplishes anything then you need a shrink.

I like your idea. What I meant was that German citizens — people who were born there — were stripped of their citizenship for being the wrong color, religion, or opposing Hitler in ways other than an insurrection or assassination attempt. Anyone who isn’t maga, white, male, & their brand of Christian is vulnerable to being deported in Project 2025 because, as in Germany, our citizenship will be taken away for not being a white male Christofascist.

Didn't Trump's grandpa lose his German citizenship because he avoided or missed his civil/ army duty?

Then they shipped him back to the USA. Go figure.

Not sure whether it was his father or grandfather who was AWOL & deported from Germany. Trumps are hate-filled chicken shits one & all.

The last sentence 🤣🤣🤣. So good!!Why in the name of all that is holy can ANYONE support this crazed piece of shit???

Expand full comment

The best explanation I’ve heard is that you have to think of MAGA like a religion or a cult (all religions are cults, but I digress), and not as a political movement per se. The digging in, even when evidence against a deeply held belief is overwhelming, is what’s happening. It makes absolutely no sense to a reasonable person that Trump would get even a single vote given what we now know. But to people who see him as a “savior” sent to return to them an America they feel they’re in danger of losing forever? They would die for him. It’s utterly maddening.

When the Republicans banned abortions it wasn't about saving 'babies". It was the first step in controlling women's bodies. Now they want to ban contraceptives that prevent pregnancy. So women should just stay pregnant and shut up??!

Expand full comment

Of course! If Republicans were truly “pro life”, they would help the children AFTER they were born

Expand full comment

Yeah, the fact that they actively oppose helping already-born people really undermines their "pro-life" bullshit. As George Carlin said many years ago, they only care from conception to 9 months – after that, you're on your own. They want to roll back the sexual revolution so we women have to dependent on men again — primarily financially. It also ties into wanting to eliminate no-fault divorce so a women can't escape an abusive POS husband. Barefoot, pregnant, and trapped.

Expand full comment

Women are already depending on men. Just this morning I heard an article on Morning Edition (NPR) that more and more men are getting vasectomies since abortion is outlawed in certain states. And maybe they want to make sure they don’t have to pay child support for 18 years. Or, if they have kids, their families are complete. It’s good to hear that some men are taking responsibility for contraception instead of it always being the woman’s burden.

I don't know if you saw this, Jeff, but I thought of you as soon as I read it...I'm not witty enough to imagine how you would write about this, but I know it would be masterful!! "Minnesota GOP picks far-right conspiracy theorist in bizarre Senate endorsement

It says a lot about the modern GOP that they are truly incapable of nominating anyone to run for office who isn't some off-putting weirdo with a brain utterly rotted with right-wing conspiracies. Royce White, a former NBA player-turned-MAGA-conspiracy theorist who frequents Alex Jones' InfoWars show, was overwhelmingly endorsed by Republicans as they look to oust Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, and it didn't take long before White started making waves on social media for posting about his penis...and that's the tame part. White’s nüTwitter feed is littered with outlandish posts referring to Democrats as “bitches,” “f*gs,” “whores," and "c*nts."
