A strange place to muse

Good evening.

Sunday evenings are my usual foil, but given what I did today, I have some thoughts.

Wednesday Blah...

Sorry for the lack of blog this morning... We had a major storm come through last night and lost power at about 6:00 PM. Downed limbs and trees all around, although thankfully not super close to us.

The power came back on about 4:00 AM, after a night of hot uncomfortable sleep. Because of that, I am very slow moving this morning, the Blog Diva is back in bed, and I am just trying to stay awake enough for work.

I may end up writing something later, but it's not likely.

Good Morning.

Skimming my news sources this evening (last night when written), things seem pretty thin.

Good Morning.

A curious phrase, "brother from another mother".

Busy day. The world currently sucks. Take a deep breath (and exhale). And enjoy a palate cleanser of a corgi puppy.

Love her always, don't like her right now.

Back in March, this article (originally published in the WaPo) was syndicated around the country. Interviewed was Barbara F. Walter, a political science professor at UCSD and an author of the book, "How Civil Wars Start: And How to Stop Them,".

Merchants of Death
Author: BobR    Date: 07/06/2022 12:39:29

The Republican party (and RWers in general) has always had its factions. The violent antigovernment faction has always been there, inspired by old western movies and mythos around the rugged individual trying to make it on his own, and being stymied by government forces. That faction has been growing and merging with others (like the anti-science factions and the evangelical factions). It's now a party dominated by sufferers of Dunning-Kruger (or those taking advantage of them) who use QAnon and random YouTubers on the internet as their main source of information.

More than that, they've become a blood cult, living in a doomsday scenario within their own heads where they are the saviors of a white population being driven out of the majority by immigrants and crime. It's their raison d'être for many of their horrific fascist leanings. Let's look at a few of these.

Good Morning.

It is the day after the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. As I noted on my tours yesterday, only John Hancock actually signed it on July 4. The resolution was adopted on July 2 - most of the delegates signed it on August 2. Any of these dates could be our actual Independence day.....but as always, I digress.
