“Police camera video from his arrest shows (Indiana State Rep.) Lucas telling officers he has a gun in his waistband and that a round was in the chamber.” Hey, Kids! February is Black History Month! Write a synopsis of how it would have gone down if Rep. Lucas had been a young black man. In a hoodie.

now there's a point I wish I'd made in my post

Sadly a black man in the same situation as Lucas probably wouldn’t be here to tell the story!!

The everyday experiences of the white population give them no insight into the lives of the poor or black population.

Expand full comment

Exactly.

Expand full comment

I say this as a privileged white person. I am amazed and sad as an intelligent and thoughtful person how little I saw my privilege until unfortunately until not to long ago.

Expand full comment

Yup, me too. I guess we were asleep, but now we are fucking woke. Never to sleep again… and the GOP’s worst fucking nightmare.

Expand full comment

In my limited experience, most ppl do not recognize their privilege for what it is. Good for you! 👍🏼

Excellent point!

I am an elderly white woman, and disabled. My little neighborhood is mostly younger black people, a wonderful, caring group who ALWAYS make sure that I'm ok, and don't need help with heavy things. I've gotten in the habit of going out and sitting on my porch with my phone when there is (very occasionally) a police car at one of the houses, videoing...just in case. And I can do that pretty safely, mostly because the police are NOT willing to take on an elderly white woman on a walker...there's just no good optics on that one. I KNOW what would have happened if that had been a young black man...with or without hoodie!

Rebecca, thank you for caring, and for being such a great neighbor! 👏❤️🥰

THEY are the great neighbors! It's one small service I can do for all that they do for me!

A "mutual aid" neighborhood - it's admirable all the way around. I'm sure they appreciate your watchful eye as well.

Hey, at least they have 49 trucks — that's an improvement over the last time I read this when they had five?

Keep it up, truckers! At this point you might get to 700,000 before the heat death of the universe.

Thank you, no, I'd rather my in-dick-able partners have at least something going on upstairs?

She got something going on upstairs...it’s called Bats in the Belfry...although I heartily second the Eww!

Okay, then—something ELSE going on upstairs besides Bats in her Belfry.

To be fair, Marge's mispronunciation may be less caused by her illiteracy and more by her obvious obsession with dicks. Hunter Biden's dick in particular.

(All I can say is it's a good thing for Marge, and most members of the "Freedumb Caucus" that breathing does not require rational thought.)

Reading teacher (retired) here. This is what you get when you throw out Whole Language and focus only on phonics instruction, as Georgia has.

The word "phonics" doesn't even start with an 'F'. This is why aliens fly right past us.

Expand full comment

Hey they threw out phonics as well, and turned it into some kind of exploratory guessing games.

The rules of phonics work a lot of the time. It is not fool proof though.

Whole Language? Is that writing and reading with phonics? My kids did that in the 1990’s. They were writing in kindergarten.

Yes. It puts the fun back into learning.

"Cokey McSnortnostrils" 🤣

And this is America? JFC! We should all be afraid...very afraid. Between Margie 3 Toes and the poor woman own her scooter, I'm dead! ☠️☠️ Seriously, how do we get a shot of intelligence into our government? Our stupid will be our undoing. Outstanding column today! ✌️💙

Expand full comment

I laughed out loud at "Cokey McSnortnostrils". 🤣😂.

And yep, sadly this is MAGA's America. Uneducated, willing to use their Trucks ( and scooter) to support Abbott in Texas without really understanding what they are for or against...MAGA talking points are all they can manage as way of explanation.

What about work? Can these people really afford to be convoying for several weeks? How will they be able to afford to give money to their Orange Idol? 😂🤣

Expand full comment

Exactly. In the words of every Republican when progressives protest.. “Don’t they have jobs?”

Expand full comment

Yo, Kimberly! Work??!?! They don’t worry about WORK. They gaslight imaginary immigrants who have “stolen” their jobs! They can blame eager newcomers’ work ethic and desire to earn a living for having taken away their (birthright) jobs. None of the worst protestors/cultists seem to hold jobs.

Expand full comment

Meryl, it does seem that's true for many who are protesting against those willing to actually work doing jobs they would never do. It's maddening.

1. UFO’s aren’t coming here as long as GPO dipshits are running the House.

2. Cocaine Jr. Is trying to shove the other Jr down our throats

3. How did Lucas not shoot himself? That would have been the better lesson.

4. Convoy got a 56% rating from Rotten Tomatoes. The remake isn’t any better.

Wait, wait, wait! Empty G and indiktable have a twin. Didn’t you hear Cokie McTrumpkin say that “they” are using a “crudgel”? Is that like a cudgel you buy in a German bakery?

Cokie McTrumpkin….this keeps getting better

Hard to pick. I guess gun-flashing is more worser than MTG having dick troubles, and she's obviously looking to run up the score in the self-own stoopid contest, but flashing a gun on children takes this contest.

Expand full comment

Ms. Faulkner looks like a space alien looking for a ride home. Tommy Tubberville can be the national spokesman for CTE after his Senate career. There's more marching powder to be had in Peru. You're lucky, teenage girls. Rep. Lewis could have flashed his other gun.(🤢🤮) Sporky sure has Dicks on her mind. Truckers spread crabs and other venereal delights as they travel. Well, that about takes care of it. Have a good weekend everybody.

If he had flashes his other gun, he could join Boebert’s husband as a sex offender! We have truly hit rock bottom with these troglodytes!

I hadn’t heard any of this, but not surprising living in my igloo north of the 49th. Sometimes my government doesn’t allow us to hear or view some of the sheet that’s going on down south.

There must be an unwritten requirement that Maga brains show <80 IQ. They should not have access to guns, microphones or holding office.

Or motor vehicles, as Rep. Lewis aptly demonstrated.

Expand full comment

These voters appear to lack the capacity to appreciate the larger issues associated with reinstating the makeup- challenged felonious fraudster. The fact that so many of these red hat dip shits, including legislators, define themselves through the inappropriate display of gun ownership is twisted.

Good old Sporkie keeps bringing her “A” game. So much clueless venom and anger wrapped in a bleach blonde skin suit and <checks notes…> as dumb as a potato. She obviously has a thing for the Mango Mussolini, but does she have to repeat every word he says?

Although potatoes have eyes…and the eyes 3 toes have must not be connected to her brain…(If she indeed has one!)

In an effort to communicate with Shitler, Tommy and Junior are learning gibberish on Babbel, but my favorite stupid is Kay on her tractor truck. I can’t stop laughing. Her kids must be so proud. Thanks for bringing us the good stuff.
