    Listening to the news about the J6 committee, it is obvious the OD and Bannon are trying to con the committee into giving Bannon a pulpit to deliver his swill.

    I seem to recall hearing a couple of committee members saying they were disinclined to do so. Bannon should agree to the same testimony procedures as everybody else.

    Assholes will be assholes. So, let Bannon be Bannon.

    I haven't seen a confirmation by the Food Section of any media outlet.  Anyone know if the Owner/Operator of the dining establishment actually acted?

    Yup. Kicked out by cannabis entrepeneur, citing “moral imperative”-  in favor of another restaurant. That’s gotta sting. 😁

    Barry M. Goldwater

    “Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they're sure trying to do so, it's going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise. I know, I've tried to deal with them.”

    Those who follow the Colorado meatpacking industry may have an interest in the August issue of Consumer Reports.

    Front cover article: "Is Our Meat Safe To Eat?"

    • Lauren Boebert is a Worthless POS says:

      The MAGA folk don't have to worry about that.

      They don't buy their meat in King Soopers, Safeway, or Costco.

      If it hasn't been lying by the side of the road for too long, it's safe to take home and cook.

    What to do about a Corrupt Supreme Court by Josh Marshall, who is on a tear.

    In recent years it has become a commonplace assumption really across the political spectrum that the Court will try to block or restrain any action by a Democratic President or Congress. The only question is what angle it will find convenient to meet the purpose. We’ve learned a common pattern in which a constitutional challenge once viewed as unprecedented bordering on absurd emerges as new constitutional law two or three years later. This is all the definition of an out of control Court operating beyond its authority. The process by which it arrived at this point is one of a deep and profound corruption. It is hardly an attack on the rule of law or judicial independence to seek to restrain those who have so successively corrupted each. The signature of what we should now call the Thomas-Alito Court is that its six to three majority – founded on corrupt actions – has freed it from any feeling of constraint. It’s power is absolute. They can do and are doing whatever they want and appear to believe there is no available check on their power.

      What to do?  Issue an Executive Order that, because of the clearly unconstitutional decisions the Six have made recently, that their votes will no longer be considered valid, leaving the nation with a three justice Supreme Court instead of a nine justice Supreme Cult.
