I don't exactly how he does it yet, but Jeff Tiedrich is brilliant, insightful, and fuckin' right on. He cusses appropriately and dances on the heads of idiots. I appreciate his work more than my mere words can express.

He's my favorite part of the day. I live in the SW so right after I wake up his column appears in my email. I always start my day off with a laugh. Particularly enjoyed today's email. These Repubs are just beyond stupid. I could do a better job and I've never been in government.

Mine too! Just his titles alone get me laughing. His is the Substack account I share the most with the Gen Zers in my family.

can you tell mme the age range of Gen Xers...thanks tons

Expand full comment

Here is one assessment of it. I had read before that Gen Z is until 25. Here Pew says that G-Z is until age 22, and Gen X is born in 1965-1980, so 39-54.

https://www.pewresearch.org/short-reads/2019/01/17/where-millennials-end-and-generation-z-begins/

London Standard agrees that Gen-X ers were born 1965-1980 as well. However, their Gen-Z goes from 1997-2012.

https://www.standard.co.uk/news/uk/which-age-range-who-generation-z-millennial-boomer-zoomer-b1073540.html

UCS has slightly different years for their Generation groups.

https://libguides.usc.edu/busdem/age

They have Gen-Zers born 2 years earlier, and Gen Xers are 1965-1979, so one year less.

"dances on the heads of idiots"

Verry nice. Beautiful imagery.

Expand full comment

Thanks. I try to just say it, whatever "it" is...alas, I'm often pissed off, write fast+ try not to cuss. I'm not very effective at cussin' but I have to say..there are those that are+I get vicarious pleasure. Its refreshing to hear the chaps here say they dislike the orange thug as much as many women. I really like it when ya'll get annoyed at some women who likes duck a la orange. It validates the view I share w/ woman. Some say they don't need validation, but I like numbers and men add to those numbers. Not to mention, the like-minded add support and that's like a warm blanket around me. Color me grateful.

I listened to the hearing today on NPR and my take-away is that the Justices weren’t buying it. It seems to me that they don’t want to make “new”decisions about things. I hope I am wrong as would like to see that big, ugly fat piece of shit off the ballot. I really would prefer to obsess over something much more pleasant that putz!

I think the case was weak to begin with, but there's more to come

I’m sorry, I think attorneys & justices are just desperate to avoid a controversial issue & the social violence that would most assuredly take place from Trump supporters.

The average citizen & many Constitutional scholars see it as pretty straightforward, you follow the Constitution or you don’t. Those who fear violence are just twisting the words & themselves into pretzels to find in Trump’s favor & millions of us are sick of it

My late brother was a special needs guy! Each morning when I watched him get on his school bus,I wondered ?
