Will restore your faith in humanity in one simple act.
RBG deserves some peace and quiet before the wolves again begin to howl.
Moscow Mitch McConnell, left, in the early days of his career as a traitor to our country. McConnell is suddenly in a powerful hurry to vote on a replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court after blocking President Barack Obama’s choice to fill the seat of the deceased Antonin Scalia.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died Friday as quietly as she served our nation. No fanfare, no hand-wringing, no cries for supplication. Too bad the rest of us can’t follow her lead, there are already too many frenzies dining on the soul of the nation.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Both parties are busy capitalizing on Ginsburg’s death. The Republicans want her replacement voted on before the next president is inaugurated. The Democrats, currently without much steam to dictate otherwise, say that we should honor RBG’s final wish to wait until after the election to pick her…

Spread this around: Libtards and anti-Trumpers are secretly spreading a dangerous airborne Idiot Virus in and around Republican gathering places identified as places where people are sitting much too closely together discussing conspiracy theories that turns them into complete blithering idiots who will believe anything. Republican critics and their right-wing goon squads already affected by the deep state initiative say Trump team is already working on a virus vaccine that will be available tomorrow, or after the election – if there is one.
What does ethics have to say?
Recently, a famous movie star threatened to leave America to protest the escalating inadequacies of Donald J. Trump. Perhaps his proclamation was mere hyperbole — actors’ careers are made of it — or perhaps it could have been the admission of a coward, only pretending to be noble.
Quite a few people who commented on Robert De Niro’s announcement sympathized with his position. On the other hand, feeling disgust for a quitter is an equally valid reaction. Despising great pretenders for protecting their wealth and notoriety is a longstanding tradition.
Why leave? Trump is not forever, perhaps not even for very much longer, Mother Nature will see to that.
The bigger question is whether the president will die the same sniveling weakling he is in life.
As for De Niro, he worked his entire life learning how not to show fear in front of a camera, apparently without it…

In theory, every potential threat presents the risk of either overreaction or underreaction. Trump’s response to the pandemic that has killed 191,000 Americans is month after month of disastrous underreaction. Trump’s claim to have prevented overreaction is like a morbidly obese guy wearing an “I BEAT ANOREXIA” t-shirt.
At least 37 million people have been displaced as a direct result of the wars fought by the United States since Sept. 11, 2001, according to a new report from Brown University’s Costs of War project. That figure exceeds those displaced by conflict since 1900, the authors say, with the exception of World War II.
Give peace a chance.
Donald Trump must have heard something about the military-industrial complex since he was outed for slandering dead soldiers and Marines killed in France during World War I. He badly needs some shade from flamed Americans, particularly vets and active-duty military service members.
Since Monday, Trump has several times babbled incoherent analogies about how America’s soldiers love him, and their generals and admirals hate him because they refuse to end the endless wars Trump ostensibly commands. Trump later tweeted a comparison of his own efforts to Eisenhower’s famous remarks.
Trump’s utterances strongly suggest he is confused by the meaning of the phrase coined by two-term President of the United States Dwight David “Ike” Eisenhower. At the end of his second term on Jan. 17, 1961, Eisenhower warned the nation to beware of the growing relationship between industrialists, so-called defense contractors, and the revolving door between the Pentagon and corporate power brokers…

Welcome to Trumplandia, a place where with a bit of wit and snark, we keep the world caught up on all of the tasty Nuggets-O-Trump you may have heard about, but were too busy to care. Because most of this minutia occurs just below the massive headlines about the POTUS, it’s in a land of its own. Here, an infusion of social media, video clips and print media meld with our outdated political views to make more delicious “Fake News” about our Commander-in-Chief.
So just like the president, we start it all with a little tweet like this:
