The current tenure of the Republican party as "leaders" in the House of Representatives has - to put it nicely - been a shitshow. When they first took charge this past January, it took them an unprecedented 15 tries to finally get enough people to vote for Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) that he was able to assume the speakership.

The main stumbling block was a small group within their party with the absurd name of "the Freedom Caucus". These are about 10-15 extremists whose apparent goal is to destroy our government from within. McCarthy had to make a bunch of concessions to win their vote, including the one that did him in. That concession was to allow just one person to push for a "no confidence" vote to oust him.

It's All a Bit Too Much
Author: Raine    Date: 10/16/2023 12:57:57

This Monday, as I peruse the internet, I find it all a bit overwhelming. Things are awful in the Middle East and for many of my friends here in the States regarding these events as well.

As always, apologies to the Boston Globe's Bob Ryan, from whom I shamelessly steal this idea from time to time.

A bit of lightness on a Friday

I don't know why this made me laugh, but I hope it at least provides a smile in such a dark week.

Blood and Sand
Author: BobR    Date: 10/11/2023 12:40:26

The Middle East has been a brutal place for a very long time. Over the millennia, the sand has soaked up more blood than likely any other place in the world.
