Frustration Friday
Author: wickedpam    Date: 01/14/2022 14:10:53

So..... Sinema........

Did any of us really seeing her and Manchin being, not just a speed bump but a whole damn road block (like washing out the road, sink hole kind of road blocks)?

I sure didn't. I know so many people are frustrated and worry this is going to turn them off from voting. And that exactly what this new mutated breed of Republican wants. Its so very hard not to fall into their demoralizing trap but its so hard.

Though sometimes small things help to at least pull us back. I'm finding that simple, short meditative breathing helpful. Give it a try...



Breathe Bubble

I hope it helps some.

Have a great weekend and please keep safe.

Mala

Morning

Plenty of things to be frustrated about. I find that working on the things I can control works for me.

Good morning.

I feel you, Mala.

Right?! She is more elegant in saying that then I would be.

Good morning, bloggers!!!!

There was a time when Sinema fought for progressive causes but she has become increasingly more conservative over time. (She used to co-host a progressive talk show with Jeff Farias , who was on KPHX, in Phoenix.) We probably cannot influence her or Manchin, although we should try to at least be on the record.

Like BobR, I find that focusing on what I can control helps.

In some good news, I expect to get a clearance letter today so that I can go back to school on Tuesday.

Now for the bad news: AntiSemitic fliers found at 4 Santa Monica elementary schools. The fliers tie Jews to the COVID-19 pandemic, much like an earlier generation tied Jews to the bubonic plague.

Will, everybody knows that Republicans cause Covid.

Jews. Why is it always the Jews? (asking rhetorically.)

Grunt.

And in other news, Comrade Putin remembers the lessons of Hitler well. (Gleiwitz Incident)


The US has alleged Russia has already positioned saboteurs in Ukraine to carry out a “false flag” operation to use as a pretext for a Russian attack, which Washington says could begin in the coming month.

The allegations, following similar claims by the government in Kyiv, come after the failure of a week of diplomacy to defuse the crisis provoked by Russia’s massing of more than 100,000 troops near Ukraine’s borders. Moscow has persistently portrayed the crisis as a military threat from Ukraine against Russia, without providing any evidence.

“Russia is laying the groundwork to have the option of fabricating a pretext for invasion, including through sabotage activities and information operations, by accusing Ukraine of preparing an imminent attack against Russian forces in eastern Ukraine,” a US official said.

“We have information that indicates Russia has already prepositioned a group of operatives to conduct a false-flag operation in eastern Ukraine.

We are a small minority that is easy to pick on, have some members who achieve prominence in a number of fields, and choose to define ourselves rather than let others define us. The last item alone is anathema to some people who see that they are examples of the pinnacle of human development.

Sadly, I have come to expect this.

I am officially under my last full day of isolation.

I had an exit interview after waiting on the phone for over an hour and will get a letter saying that I am in the clear.

So they've gone from blaming Asian people to blaming Jewish people?

Why don't they make up their minds?!!!!!

Your question assumes that they have functional minds.

To think that this is the guy who convinced Pence not to go along with Trump's plans to not certify the election results. I guess that his heart is better than his brain.
