How you manage to channel your thoughts so eloquently every damn day, man, it’s inspiring. I mean it. Thanks. From all of us, but I reckon you know that.

I wonder the same thing! This Non. Stop. Bullshit. Has me raging yet incoherent. There's no way I could come up with coherent discussions the way Tiedrich does.

Sporkfoot probably actually believes the QAnon fuckery, but I don't think Donalds does. Yet he and so many others will humiliate themselves with idiotic speeches like that. And for what? I suppose that Donalds and every other one of those hoping to be VP think that if he gets elected, there's a good chance Trump won't live through his entire term--not because anyone's going to "get" him, but because of his horrible health. And then they'll be president. Spoiler alert: none of that is going to happen to you doofuses, but for sure you will go down in history as one of the immoral spineless anti-patriotic assholes willing to do ANYTHING for the chance.

That Congressman continually talked over her trying to change the subject. These Republicans are duplicitous. Good for her for holding his feet to the fire.

He does that every single time. Whenever I hear that asswipe speak nonstop, I hear Joe Biden in the debate in 2016: “Will you shut up, man?”

Byron Donald should fix his name tag to read B.Donalds( boy) what an asshole he is ,if he was in NYC back in Trumps hay day he could have been one of the 5 kids Trump called to be executed ,even after they were cleared WTF !?Abbey laid into that friggen puppet but good !

I call Byron Donald and his ilk, "The Goebbels Brigade" because Goebbels was Hitler's propaganda minister and talking head. He just lied, lied, lied, and spun every situation. That is what these people do too, except that all of us are not buying their shit. Trump is following Hitler's playbook, as has Putin, with Trump goose stepping behind. I am sure Trump intends to kill Biden and Harris if he comes to power, and perhaps even if he does not.

Donalds starts right out saying, "My view of it is very simple" and to that, I say no shit! I don't know how they do interviews with any republican as they all talk over the interviewer constantly. Just once I would love for someone to say, STFU and get off this set because we're done.

You’re right, it is scary. With SCOTUS overtly supporting the J6 insurrection, it seems like everything is against democracy.

Expand full comment

It really does 😞, I feel dejected... when the highest powers want to take away democracy, they have no rules or oversight and can do what they want (SCOTUS) for a fucking lifetime, what can we do (besides vote), esp when some idiots believe the propaganda... and we need the majority of people to vote blue up and down the ticket for 8-12 years to rid ourselves of this shit, but that never happens and it has to be a super majority that sends the loudest of messages that republican extremism is no longer viable, it can't be thin barely wins that can be exploited!!!

That MTG description along with narcoleptic fart factory got a much needed laugh going immediately. The picture of three toes with that wide-open oral orifice reminds of an old Rodney Dangerfield line, "last time I saw a mouth like that, it had a hook in it". As the GOP keeps spewing its daily bombardment of off the wall sensationalized bullshit, we have to wonder how these delusional assholes can keep their campaign afloat based on twisted false rhetoric. In the meantime, have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend everyone.

I’m with ya Susan! I used to love people. I said it all the time. I love all the different and interesting characters I’ve met over the years, but now it’s just “are with us or against us”, and that is horrifying. WE all know we’re right, but are there enough of us to get out there and do the right thing, spread the truth, point out the lies? I think there are, and you’re one of those voices.

Even if Biden wins in November, the white, fundamentalist, Christian Nationalists have no reason for concern. The extreme-right oligarchy has been patiently studying the constitutional faults and undermining American democracy for decades. They won’t stop because of one election. Congress is Gerrymandered, the Court has an extremist super majority, and a majority of states are controlled by extremist legislatures. I don’t see this turning around until the self-serving ideologies push this nation and the world into environmental and economic catastrophe. Even then, the oligarchs will be fine. What difference to them are mass unemployment, mass starvation, and mass extinction?

Imagine how happy you could be if you didn't know all the shit that is happening out there in the world of the movers and shakers, and were only aware of what was going on in your immediate surroundings and acquaintances.

Too many young people are in the same world. They know every twist and turn of the Kendrick-Drake conflict, or what Taylor Swift is up to, but aren't even aware that Trump has been on trial.

Here in Canada we are wondering what the hell is going on in the once admired and respected USA.

Going to jail because you have an abortion pill in your pocket? Going to jail because you are helping an 11-year-old who has been impregnated by her father? A Supreme Court that doesn’t follow the rules of law. A narcistic rapist who screws women while his wife is pregnant is being admired by 150 million Americans. What a fucking banana republic you have become!!

We are bombarded by propaganda on a daily basis that has the only goal of keeping its viewers riled up and watching their Faux News. I don’t know if Canadians are subject to the same level of constant stream of bullshit. Even the mainstream media has gone over the edge with trying to maintain it’s readership by publishing articles about the Narcoleptic Orange Fart Factory that puts him in a good light while ignoring the thousands of demented things he says and does. The gaslighting and total lies have reached a crescendo and many Americans are completely hypnotized.

Those of us with common sense and a few morals peppered with integrity are dying a thousand deaths here. We good guys vote proper, send money to the right places, volunteer. We don’t know what the hell else to do. Well, we know things we’d like to do but no one (sensibly) is ready for the prison and/or death penalty consequences for doing what’s in the back of so many minds.

And that one act would not make the sea change needed to turn this ship around. As I’ve often said, the majority of these people who are harming us and U.S. would not be in power if they weren’t elected into power by people who want them in power. Including the ones who were elected by scags and then had the post to appoint powerful scags like SCOTUS judges.

Husband and I are frequently asking these days: who are we living shoulder to shoulder with? Who are these people? What’s made them so lonely, miserable, and frightfully ignorant? Is that too much MacDonalds? Too much Kardashian tv? All of it? But most other countries have same challenges. What’s with US?

I think we’ve got to go way back to the arrogant principles this country was founded upon (and many of those principles were built upon the idea that white was better than black) using guns to do the talking. I’m not sure “something had just happened to us”. I worry that we are living out our karma.

Marie: True, but this fascist wave is also in several other countries, namely Hungary, Turkey, etc. Your comment about the way this country was set up is absolutely right on the money.
