A Respectful Friday
Author: wickedpam    Date: 05/28/2021 13:25:21

It's Memorial Day weekend. That 3 day weekend were we are supposed to honor our fallen but really we spend it kicking off summer with beach trips and barbeques. We are nothing if not multi-taskers I guess.

It was in 2014 that Arlington National Cemetery Historic Park District was announced by the National Park Service.

The historic district was determined to be nationally significant in the following ways: 1) as America’s most sacred national cemetery and as a national memorial to the military history of the United States; 2) it contains the burials of persons of national importance, including presidents, Supreme Court justices and countless military heroes; and 3) as the final resting place of service men and women from the Civil War to the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, it continues to serve as a national monument to the America’s war dead.

Just Plain Nuts

America has gone crazy. Okay, a certain subset of America has gone crazy, and you know exactly whom I am talking about. The Orange Menace opened Pandora's box, and then left the gullible without any guidance. In that void, the dumber politicians are gaslighting and making crazy claims, with little to no blowback, and the smarter ones are reaping the whirlwind.

There are so many crazy things coming out, that I can't just focus on one and build a blog around it. Open wide - here comes the firehose:

Wyoming Republican primaring Liz Cheney claims impregnating a 14 year old girl when he was 18 was just like "Romeo and Juliet" (but more rapey)

Verified Distrust

You can't have it both ways. One cannot denounce the 'Big Lie' without denouncing voter suppression and be considered an honest broker. As I said the other day, "This is no longer a political party. This is an organized crime syndicate led by a maniacal cult leader holed up in his bunkers in Florida and New Jersey. This fever needs to be broken for the sake of our democracy."[/i

Fun Friday
Author: wickedpam    Date: 05/21/2021 13:13:03

Ever get too much in your own head and lose track of what you wanted to write? Yep, just did that. * sigh * Well that's frustrating.

Got any fun plans for the weekend?

Forward Charge!

"It couldn't happen to a nicer guy..." - which is why it's happening to a much nastier guy. The former occupant of the Oval Office was facing civil charges related to his habit of over-valuing real estate for bank loans and undervaluing them for tax purposes. By now, the news has pretty widely broken that the NY AG has announced the case has turned into a criminal one:
