Madam President
Author: wickedpam    Date: 01/26/2022 14:09:26

Soooo, in case you haven't heard Virginia has a new governor. Only 11 days in and he's been horrific and awful and trying to "rule" by EO's. The new Lt Gov and AG are both awful too btw.

But trying to stop them and holding the Blue Wall in Virginia is Madame President Pro Tempore Senator Louise Lucas. She is a bad ass rockstar who, as she puts it, "is a 78 yo grandma who helped legalize pot and now has her own cannibis store". She will also proudly tell everyone (with a chuckle) that its on High Street in Portsmouth. She also channels ninja style legislative skills, Gen Z, and humor to get the job done.

How did I not know of this woman before now?!!! If you don't follow her on twitter - think about it, you won't be sorry - Madame President (Louise Lucas).

There is no quiet part anymore
Author: Raine    Date: 01/20/2022 14:08:14

The Senate failed to change its filibuster rules to allow for a voting rights carve out yesterday. Every single member of the Senate who is considered a Republican voted No. Two Democrats voted no. This is a complete and utter failure on the entirety of the Senate.

One Year Later
Author: BobR    Date: 01/19/2022 13:37:34

It's been one year since President Joe Biden took office. In that time, he has seen the death rate from Coronavirus plummet, only to have 2 variants surge (although the death rate was lessened by the wide availability of the vaccine). We have seen the unemployment rate drop to new lows, with some segments of industry begging for workers and offering heretofore unseen wages and benefits.

We've also seen prices rise, due to shortages in availability of products, due to supply chain issues, due to lack of workers. Capitalism is a double-edged sword.

It's also now an election year for the U.S. House of Representatives and 1/3 of the U.S. Senate (along with countless state races). Voter turnout will be crucial for the Democrats to maintain control of both houses of Congress, which is why Republicans are trying so hard to keep people from voting, and why the Voting Rights Bill is so important. Even if both houses flip control, there won't be veto-proof majorities - it just means there will be a lot of posturing with horrific bills that won't become law. Progress will grind to a halt.

Today is my annual MLK Blog post. While so many out there in our circles and on the media will be quoting him, I hope they are reminded of what he was fighting and why he was assassinated.

A Little Joy

Good Morning.

Another fun-filled week of listening to hate radio has filled my head with astounding conspiracy theories. I was going to relate some today - but have decided to take a different tack.
