A Vacuum of Claustrophobia
Author: Raine    Date: 08/22/2022 13:06:00

“The fundamentalist seeks to bring down a great deal more than buildings. Such people are against, to offer just a brief list, freedom of speech, a multi-party political system, universal adult suffrage, accountable government, Jews, homosexuals, women’s rights, pluralism, secularism, short skirts, dancing, beardlessness, evolution theory, sex.”

They never had any decency.

You've done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?

Going Nuclear
Author: BobR    Date: 08/17/2022 12:51:24

The hardest thing about writing a blog today is narrowing the focus. There's the predicted Liz Cheney primary loss... there's the legislative successes of President Biden... there's Rudy Ghouliani's lost cause to avoid testifying in GA.... So much stuff.

However, the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lardo is just too rich to ignore, especially with all the sub-stories swirling around the main one. As this has developed, TFG's excuses morphed from "It's a hoax" to "they planted evidence" to "I declassified them" to "everybody does it" to JOE BIDEN'S LAPTOP! HER EMAILS!! PELOSI!!!

Those of us who don't think of TFG as the next coming of Christ aren't the least bit surprised. Okay, maybe a bit happily surprised that his hubris may finally do him in (although he's managed to get away with SO much so far). After all, he's carelessly leaked secrets before:

Yeah, But
Author: Raine    Date: 08/15/2022 12:39:24

Last Tuesday, we woke to the news that the FBI conducted a search at The Mar-A-Lago club. A lot of stuff was seized by the Feds. There has been a lot mentioned that this is his private residence. However, it should be noted that while he was allowed to live there, he is considered an employee of the private club.

Fear and Loathing
Author: Raine    Date: 08/11/2022 13:00:05

There was once a King who with his queen had a child. An oracle told him that he "is doomed to perish by the hand of his own son."

Well, in response, that ruler ordered his Queen to kill their son. She couldn't and had a servant do so instead. But the servant didn't. Instead, the child was left to die on a scorching mountaintop. A Shepard found the child and saved his life.
