Super-Short Snippets

Just a few mini snippets that have crossed my path and made me either grrrrrrowl or smack myself upside the head this week …

Ever notice that the word “Republican” contains the word ‘public’?  And yet … and yet, the Republican Party could care less about the public.  Funny that.

“Former Speaker Paul Ryan is on a quiet quest to reboot the GOP as one of policy and ideas—not of identity and celebrity.”  Yeah, right … believe it when you see it.

Nikki Haley says that “wokeness is more dangerous than any pandemic.”  How many people have been killed by ‘wokeness?’  6.8 million people globally have died from Covid …

“Former Trump National Security Advisor and retired US. Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn is suing the U.S. government for $50 million on grounds of wrongful prosecution.”  This would mean that every taxpayer in this nation would be paying money to Mike Flynn, liar, conspiracy theorist, and insurrectionist.  No way, Josè!  I wouldn’t give the man a dime if he were starving!

“Republican Lawmakers Withdraw Bill To Rename John Lewis Way After Trump”.  That they even thought of the idea in the first place tells you everything you need to know.  John Lewis, a great civil rights leader, vs Donald Trump, a bigot, a conman, and a crook.

Over at Fox “News”, ol’ Tucker C. is blaming the failure of Silicon Valley Bank on the bank’s support of women and women’s history month.  Okaaaaaaaayyyy … well, you gotta take whatever the Tuck-monster says with a grain of salt.

  1. I found this blog post to be very thought-provoking. It’s interesting to think about how the word “Republican” contains the word “public,” yet the party seems to prioritize their own interests over those of the public. It’s also concerning to see individuals like Nikki Haley equating “wokeness” with a pandemic, when the two are clearly not comparable in terms of impact on human life. However, what really caught my attention was the mention of Paul Ryan’s quest to reboot the GOP with a focus on policy and ideas. Do you think this is a feasible goal for the party, or is it too tied up in identity and celebrity to make a significant shift? And what kind of policy and ideas would you like to see the Republican Party prioritize?

    • Thank you … I’m glad you found it interesting and thought-provoking! There was a time when I viewed Paul Ryan as one of the better, more moderate Republicans, but the fact that he is on the Fox Board of Directors speaks volumes to me. Fox once had a couple of genuine news people, but they are long gone and today it is the single biggest purveyor of lies and conspiracy theories, so anybody who throws their lot in with Fox is, to me, not an honest or a good person. I think Paul Ryan, like the rest, will kiss the hand of whoever promises him the most. As to what I’d like to see the Republican Party prioritize … oh wow … that’s quite a list. But I would start with honesty & truth, remove the liars like George Santos and Marge Greene. Climate change and the environment is high on my priority list. Gun legislation — ban assault weapons and strictly regulate all gun sales. Education. Poverty. Healthcare. Women’s rights, civil rights, and LGBTQ rights. And that’s just the beginning! Are you sorry you asked? 😉 Thanks for visiting, and I hope you’ll come back soon!
