Numerous things are weighing on my mind today and as I was scrolling through the latest news today, that old Pogo saying came to mind …
Georgians love ‘batshit crazy’
I foolishly believed that people, even republicans, still had some values, some sense of right and wrong, but that notion was dispelled this morning when I read that despite every horrible thing Margie Greene has done, the voters in her party still think she is great.
At the Georgia Republican Party convention this weekend, many attendees were seen wearing “We love Marjorie” pins and when asked about her appeal, more than 20 party activists and officials mentioned her disregard for political correctness and approach to politics as a “Washington outsider.” Many said they appreciate her willingness to say what she believes, even if it is inaccurate or dangerous — the same traits they admired in the former guy.
Some of the comments …
“If that were me up there, I’d be doing the same thing. Though she probably does it with more tact.”
“She’s very dynamic, very personable. She’s someone who’s different from the typical politician.”
“When you go to her district and talk to people about her, they’re going to tell you, ‘we like the job she’s doing.’”
My advice is to stay out of Georgia … there’s something toxic in the air there!
Da judge is WRONG!!!
I don’t typically purport to have greater intelligence or better knowledge than judges, but in this case I do. On Friday night, U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez of the Southern District of California overturned California’s longtime ban on assault weapons, saying the state’s law was unconstitutional and that prohibiting such firearms for decades was “a failed experiment.”
The judge not only said that sections of the state ban in place since 1989 regarding military-style rifles violate the Second Amendment, but he compared weapons such as the AR-15 to a Swiss army knife, saying …
“Like the Swiss Army Knife, the popular AR-15 rifle is a perfect combination of home defense weapon and homeland defense equipment.”
BULLSHIT!!!! Now tell me, which of these two would you rather confront?
California Attorney General Rob Bonta plans to file an appeal on behalf of the State of California. I agree with Bonta when he says …
“Today’s decision is fundamentally flawed. There is no sound basis in law, fact, or common sense for equating assault rifles with Swiss Army knives — especially on Gun Violence Awareness Day and after the recent shootings in our own California communities.”
Let us hope that the appellate court has better sense than Judge Benitez!!!
The fox guarding the henhouse
You remember Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, right? He’s the one who attempted to overturn the results of the 2020 election by filing lawsuits against four states – Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin – claiming that pandemic-era changes to election procedures in those states violated federal law and asked the U.S. Supreme Court to block the states from voting in the Electoral College. He wanted the Court to simply throw out the votes of every person in those states! His efforts failed, for even then-U.S. Attorney General William Barr, another Trump toadie, stated that there was no evidence whatsoever of the voter fraud Paxton and other blind fools were claiming.
At any rate, Paxton is back in the news and in my book should be investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice and charged with treason. Why? On Friday Paxton appeared on Steve Bannon’s program and said that if he hadn’t blocked a large number of postal votes in 2020, President Biden would have won in the state of Texas! He openly admits to rigging the election!!!
“If we’d lost Harris County—Trump won by 620,000 votes in Texas. Harris County mail-in ballots that they wanted to send out were 2.5 million, those were all illegal and we were able to stop every one of them. Had we not done that, we would have been in the very same situation—we would’ve been on Election Day, I was watching on election night and I knew, when I saw what was happening in these other states, that that would’ve been Texas. We would’ve been in the same boat. We would’ve been one of those battleground states that they were counting votes in Harris County for three days and Donald Trump would’ve lost the election.”
NEWSFLASH … Donald Trump DID lose the election, and based on Paxton’s words, he lost by far more than we are told! The people of Texas ought to be gunning for this asshole, ought to be demanding his immediate resignation!
