    It occured to me this morning that if someone told when I first entered the workforce that shortly after I retired, the United States would be on the brink of an attempted coup de etat by a brutal strongman dictator, I would have asked for the name of your dope dealer.

    Optimism is getting more and more scarce. Meanness seems unfettered. The Orange Destruction is ready and eager to get “vicious”, so he is calling in his orcs and trolls… the bloodshed will be tremendous.

    Many of those who are duty bound to serve him are also duty bound to stop him. ‘Cause I gotta tell you boys…the Capt’n is off his nut.

    Reportedly, Michael Bloomberg is giving $100 million to help Biden carry Florida.  Victory there means winning just one of the remaining swing states would oust Trump.  The Bloomberg drive also frees Democratic funds to concentrate on other swing states.

    Yay, Bloomberg!

    If your supporters won’t show up, just rent new ones. OH Craigslist ad for Trump cheerleaders. Wonder in how many other states similar ads will run.

    $2 more per hour if you are wearing a pro Trump shirt.

      It's a sad state of affairs in this country when people will risk infection at a super spreader Trump rally, posing as a Magamoron, for 12 bucks an hour. 

      Provided he's not incarcerated, maybe Trumps final rally a few years down the road from now will feature 100 % fake, paid supporters, and everybody will be aware of the fact but him. Let him ride out into the sunset in his own fantastical bubble…

    The 2021 National Western Stock Show has been canceled. Our rural-patriot-brothers have taken to Facebook and are up in arms, yet another sign of how Polis is destroying our state.  <sigh>. There's even linkies to his appointment of a vegan to the State Board of Veterinary Medicine as proof!!  Forget your guns, he's coming after our livestock! 

    Meanwhile in Israel…

    Aw crikey, recalls are back. I'm holding my breath to see if they can get 600,000 valid sigs in 60 days. How many boxes for cases of Bud will it take to hold that many?

    This is a delightful thread: a Citibank SVP and a pig farmer are the core of QAnon.

    Thank you, Wisconsin Supreme Court…..

    At least Howie won't be the spoiler in the Badger State.
