If anyone watches the cable news network MSNBC you will know that they have a fair amount of Republican contributors on air. While they have been cast as 'Never-T--mpers" -- they are still conservatives.

Trisec is tired.

"The blood thins - the body fails, and one is finally thankful for a failing memory.

I no longer treasure life, not even my own.

I AM TIRED!

The past....is a blank."

Rolling hills, deep river valleys, and the worlds longest known cave system. Mammoth Cave National Park is home to thousands of years of human history and a rich diversity of plant and animal life, earning it the title of UNESCO World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve.


Cool!

Cannon Fodder

So often, many ask (including myself) does the conservative movement want to kill their base? The easy answer seems to be, 'They wanna own the libs' and while I suspect there is a portion of the base that thinks this way, the answer cannot be that simple.

At the Highest Levels
Author: BobR    Date: 07/28/2021 12:24:02

Yesterday was the first public step in the investigation of the Jan 06th insurrection. Called to testify, 4 of the approximately 100-ish police officers there that day from various forces (Capitol and DC) that managed to keep 1000+ members of a violent mob from overthrowing the government spoke their truth. Due to work obligations, I was unable watch the proceedings in real time. However, I've read and seen enough video to know that it was difficult for them to relive that heinous assault.

As bad as it was for them to rehash that day, what would be worse is to let it go unquestioned, and let those questions go unanswered. Certain members of the Republican party have tried to do just that. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tried to load the investigative committee with tRump loyalists who continue to deny the terrorists who assaulted our democracy did anything wrong. Seriously:

"Wow folks - I don't normally comment about the weather on the tour unless we're about to be hit by a thunderstorm. But look across Boston Common in front of the trolley - that's not haze; I just saw it on the news, that's smoke from the fires in California and Oregon".

Unvaccinated has always been the problem
Author: Raine    Date: 07/26/2021 13:10:34

Good Monday morning. After reading TriSec's weekend blog it got me thinking about the 2 Americas. After spending time this weekend with dear high school friends, I generally agree that we have divisions but sometimes nuance and context is important. We all were vaccinated and Bob is recovering from what little estrogen4 middle-aged women have, but I digress.

Answer: YES.

Good morning.

How's your neck of the woods this fine morn? Vaccination rates are pretty high here in the Greater Boston area. We fully re-opened, and while the tourism industry isn't exactly booming, we're running at around 75% of our 2019 numbers. Things are looking good for another month anyway. After Labor Day is anyone's guess.

Kawaii Kin'yōbi

Whelp, for good or bad, the Olympics have finally opened. To no cheering crowds and COVID on the rise. And well, it being Japan and all, you just knew they were going to have some Kawaii cuteness as their mascots.
