Two More Crawling From Under The Rocks

Unfortunately, Tuesday’s primaries across the nation yielded some deeply disturbing results.  I want to take a look at two, in particular – Lauren Boebert and Mary Miller.

Lauren Boebert has been a representative in the U.S. House of Representatives for a year-and-a-half now and has been nothing but trouble since day #1.  I had sincerely hoped that the Republicans in Colorado’s District 3 would see the horror they had voted for in 2020 and oust her this time ‘round, but apparently they’ve been drinking their fair share of Kool-Aid at Boebert’s Shooters Restaurant and weren’t able to see clearly when they went to the polls on Tuesday.  We all know of Boebert’s gun fetish.  During the pandemic, she sat in on a congressional Zoom meeting with a wall of many guns as her background, and she has caused trouble more than a few times demanding that she be allowed to carry a loaded pistol into places in the Capitol where guns are forbidden.

But it is her latest little tirade that has left me growling …

“The reason we had so many overreaching regulations in our nation is because the church complied. The church is supposed to direct the government. The government is not supposed to direct the church. That is not how our Founding Fathers intended it. And I’m tired of this separation of church and state junk that’s not in the Constitution. It was in a stinking letter and it means nothing like what they say it does.”

GOOD GRIEF!!!  She took an oath swearing to uphold the Constitution, and she hasn’t even read the damned thing!  The concept of separation of church and state comes from the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment … which quite obviously Ms. Boebert either never read, or didn’t understand.  And just WHICH religion does she think should be ‘directing’ the government?  There are roughly 4,200 religions, churches, religious bodies, faith groups, tribes, etc. worldwide today!  Would she advocate for … say … Islam to be the official religion of the nation?  Or Judaism?  And if she answered ‘Christianity’, then which sect or cult, for there are three main branches of Christianity:  Catholic, Protestant, and Eastern Orthodox.  Among those three branches are more than 200 separate denominations in the United States alone, more than 45,000 worldwide!  So, pick a religion, and no matter which one you pick, you’re going to be excluding the vast majority of the people in the nation!  And this doesn’t even bring into account folk like me who are non-religious!  We pay taxes and have rights, too, y’know Lauren!

Representative Adam Kinzinger refers to Boebert’s ideology as the “Christian Taliban” and I cannot help but agree with him!  A woman this stupid has absolutely ZERO business sitting in the United States Congress … or any lawmaking body, for that matter … and can only be considered a laughingstock, albeit a very dangerous laughingstock.  I would like to be able to say I’m hopeful that the Democratic candidate for the 3rd District in Colorado can wipe the pavement with her on election day in November, but sadly … it’s doubtful because of the 184,794 votes cast for both parties in yesterday’s primary, Boebert scored 83,217 of the votes and her Democratic opponent, Adam Frisch, only received 24,961 votes.  Republicans scored 68% of the total votes, so it looks like the 3rd District in Colorado is populated by people who care more about their guns than their future.

And then there’s Mary Miller, another newbie in the U.S. House of Representatives representing Illinois’ 15th District who also won her primary yesterday.  I had not heard of Ms. Miller until she flew onto my radar last week with this comment after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the 1973 Roe v Wade decision …

“President Trump, on behalf of all the MAGA patriots in America, I want to thank you for the historic victory for white life in the Supreme Court yesterday.”


First of all, there is NO “president trump” and second of all … a victory for ‘white’ life???  What a (cover your ears, Keith!) ignorant, ugly, racist pig she is!!!  She later claimed that she meant to say “the right to life”, but I don’t believe that for a minute, for she would have caught and corrected herself immediately had that been the case, not waited until she was confronted about her comment.

Miller has done a number of troublesome things in her 18-month tenure in Congress, from quoting Hitler to introducing anti-trans legislation to passing along anti-Semitic and white supremacist propaganda, but the “white life” comment is the first time she floated onto my radar and frankly I wish she had stayed off!

So, my friends, it looks like certain parts of this nation are seeking some serious change … change that, if they are successful, is likely to drive us directly from a democratic republic into a fascist dictatorship, a nation where only white males have any value and the rest of us will be dominated by them.  Surely we’re not going to sit still for this?  Margie Greene, Matt Gaetz, Lauren Boebert, and now Mary Miller … where does it end?  Is this to be our future, or are these just momentary blips on the radar?

  1. I thought CO was much better than this, considered liberal in last years, but these crazies are more organized and on a dangerous path. I was actually shocked she won and by such a margin.

    • I think it’s rather like Georgia, where in the urban areas, it has become more liberal over the years, but in the rural areas, the people seem to be bored and are seeking some excitement in their tedious little lives, so people like Marge Greene, Lauren Boebert, et al appeal to their “sense of change”, their desire to see change, whether for better or for worse.

    • Hello Larry. I read the other day that she tried a modeling career and when it failed, she became an “adult” escort. One of the people she “escorted” was Ted Cruz. He introduced her to other connected high level political people and they set up her run for congress and got her donors. I guess she had a talent for escorting they felt was needed in congress. Plus it was easier for these escorted men to explain a campaign contribution than a personal charge for escorting on their credit card that the wife might see. Hugs

    • It would seem that they are bored with the status quo and want some excitement in their lives. Sadly, they are not particularly intelligent nor well-read, so they haven’t read the history that might serve as a warning of what is to come. Sigh.


  3. Thank you for sharing!!.. the folks you have mentioned (Trump, Miller and others to numerous to mention) are pursuing their own agenda… the voters are pursuing their own agenda… each is using the other in an attempt to realize their goals… this is what is making headlines… 🙂

    Generations back with technology being what it was, one were not all that up to date on things… with today’s technology everyone is better informed and showing us that democracy is possibly threatened and I am sure there are many in the background, not making the headlines, using the technology and preparing to safeguard democracy… 🙂

    As can been seen in other parts of the world, the founding fathers knew what would happen should religion play a role in government, the lives of individuals and the dream of America… religion is based on faith, difficult to defend when faced with knowledge and reality… 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May your day be touched
    by a bit of Irish luck,
    Brightened by a song
    in your heart,
    And warmed by the smiles
    of people you love.
    (Irish Saying)

    • You are quite right that technology has played a role … some good, some not-so-good … but we know far more of the workings of our government than we once did, and politicians can get their message out to millions with the click of a button … again, sometimes a good thing, sometimes not.

      The idea of a nation dominated by one single religion is horrifying to me … it is the stuff nightmares are made of. And my fear is that the Court’s latest decision is but the beginning. As we can see from Boebert’s speech and the applause she gets, a substantial part of this nation blindly thinks that religious interference in our lives would be a good thing. Until, of course, it disagrees with their own religious beliefs and ‘values’. Sigh.

      Many thanks, Dutch, for your wise words and for the lovely Irish Saying … “warmed by the smiles of people you love” … yes, that’s exactly what keeps me going!


  4. Jill, there are some imperfect people in the Democrat party. Let me start with that. But, gerrymandering (even some Republicans have admitted this publicly) had caused some very strident people to get elected to Congress and state assemblies from the Republican party. Top of mind, people like Broebart, Gohmer, Gosar, Taylor-Greene, Cawthorn, Gaetz, et al have been elected that do not come across as statesmen or women. Cawthorn lost only because he said uncomfortable things about his own party, not because of what he said or did, in general, that should have warranted scrutiny.

    I want my Congress to represent the best in us, not the worst in us, gravitating toward our better angels, not our worse demons. I would not put any of the folks noted in the category of gravitating toward our better angels. We will have to watch Ms. Miller.

    • No human is without flaws, regardless of political or religious affiliation, but overall the Democrats are ‘for the people’ whereas the Republicans appear to be for mass chaos … the wackier the candidate, the more they are loved among Republican voters. I imagine the ones you named are the bane of the GOP’s existence, but they’re not about to cast them out, for they seem to have hypnotized the voting public on the right. And yes, I do think that Cawthorn could have stayed had he not attempted to involve members of his own party in his manic tales.

      Like you, my friend, I want the people we elect, the people who we PAY, to represent us, to do what is best for the nation and the people … ALL of the people. With the chaos of the past six years, important issues like climate change, gun legislation and more have fallen by the wayside and people are dying as a result. This is not tenable. And yet, in the upcoming mid-terms, there are more crazies than ever running for a seat in Congress. Before long, they’ll need to put an arcade, tents, and trained animals in the Capitol building to complete the image of a three-ring circus. Sigh.

  5. Things always get, messy, when the church gets, involved in the, state’s, business, that’s why there’s the “separation of church and state” that’s, created, and now, the two became, enmeshed, and, there’s going to be a while lot of messes in the, more debatable, more controversial issues such as abortion and, same-sex marriages too.

    • So true … I have long said that religion is at the core of most of the world’s problems. I think you’re right, that there are a whole lot of messes to come in the days/months/years ahead until common sense comes back into our government … if it ever does. Sigh.


  6. I hope they’re all just momentary blips in Humanity. Lauren Boebert is what I’d best describe as a stroppy cow. She thinks she should have been born a man and is over compensating for the fact she wasn’t. But she has a very funny image of what a man should be.
    Mary Miller is a blonde bimbo, throwing in what she thinks are clever remarks to a conversation. Not things she’s thought of herself, but things she’s heard which show her as she really is. I’ve no doubt the’ White comment’ was intended to be taken in context thus appealing to a large section of her voting public .oh i hope trump goes down. I also hope that a challenger can educate Ms Boebert about the Separation of Church and State and just where it can be found. II don’t for minute think she’ll be interested in the reasons for it, I’m still fully convinced the Republicans are at the point of tearing up the constitution to start again under new rules, THEIRS.

    • A ‘stroppy cow’ … I like that term! Fits her to a ‘T’. And ‘blonde bimbo’ is precisely what I called Mary Miller yesterday, though I didn’t include it in my post in an effort not to be too crass. And yes, my friend, with the recent court decisions, including today’s destructive ruling on West Virginia v EPA, it appears that the Republicans now own the Supreme Court as well as the GOP. What is left for them to destroy? Sigh.

  7. The should be momentary blips, Jill, but how long is a moment? How loud is a blip? Those questions remain to be answered. And will they be over before or after the damxge is done?

    • Time, like most everything, is relative, so … who knows how long a blip lasts? And if they are over only after maximum damage is done, who repairs the damage? Is there anyone left to repair it, or does nature ultimately return the Earth to a natural state for the species who remain?
