January 6

April 12, 1861
December 8, 1941
September 11, 2001
January 6, 2021
These are the dates that traitors or bullies or cowards or homegrown terrorists attacked our country. (Thank you, VP Harris for reminding me of some of those dates.)
President Biden, you inspired me today.
While I worry about what the guy who LOST the election & his followers will do in the future, I have no doubt that this administration will take the appropriate steps to counter them.
Our democratic republic must live on – and they don’t want it to.
So they whine about masks, scream that the election was stolen (with ZERO proof), argue about Critical Race Theory (which will be in every public school in a generation’s time, if not sooner), roar about Black Lives Matter, scream about their assault rifles, vilify the LGBTQ community, put down the Me Too movement, and claim that their religion is under attack (which is weird, since their behavior is decidedly NOT Christian; also odd because almost everyone I know is a Christian). True political debate is dead. It’s all about Trump’s ego and some clown (or clowns) named Q
Thank you again, President Biden, for reminding me that we must never forget January 6. We must learn from it and make sure it NEVER can happen again.


This is an awesome win for all of us…

Slow-Moving Coup

I’m trying to limit (or eliminate) my political posts. It’s generally not worth it. But this article motivated me to post.

Robert E. Lee

General Robert E. Lee on slavery:
“The blacks are immeasurably better off here than in Africa, morally, socially & physically. The painful discipline they are undergoing, is necessary for their instruction as a race, & I hope will prepare & lead them to better things. How long their subjugation may be necessary is known & ordered by a wise Merciful Providence. Their emancipation will sooner result from the mild & melting influence of Christianity, than the storms & tempests of fiery Controversy. This influence though slow, is sure,” he wrote in 1856.”

Get vaccinated

To not get vaccinated, to not wear a mask in certain public places, puts my already compromised health at risk…and my mom’s & my sisters’ & nephews’ & nieces’. So…thanks.

Texas abortion law

I know the new Texas law bans abortions after the 6th week, but Trumpers/pro”lifers” must believe that SOMEWHERE in Texas illegal abortions are being performed, or else they wouldn’t be forming their little web sites and such to try to catch a woman who is, say, 10 weeks pregnant.
Which brings me to my questions. But first I will admit that I cannot tell how far along someone is just by looking at them. Maybe some people can. Now these pro-“lifers” can sue anyone aiding & abetting an illegal abortion. But how would they know the woman is past six weeks? They cannot walk up to the front desk of a women’s care facility and ask. HIPAA protects the privacy of all patients everywhere. It is a federal law, which supersedes state laws.
Unless someone has personal information about the woman in question (and by personal information I mean they live next door to her or know her from work, that sort of thing), how will these pro-“lifers” know?
