DayThree. America Held Hostage.
Cue the music from Nightline and bring in Ted Koppel.
Outsider's opinion on Rep. Lauren "Bim" Boebert:
My first real experience in politics ( I don’t count high school student council, though learning Roberts Rules of Order was valuable) was as a student senator at a jr. college in Fla.
The leadership of the student senate were experienced and organized. I naively trusted them, so I did not understand when they used me to deliver a statement to the Board of Trustees which was extremely stupid and immediately made me a pariah to the faculty and most students.
Calling the OD her “favorite president” won’t save her from the consequences of her betrayal. She may have calculated that he is done, and she can get away with crossing His Magnificent Meanness. History suggests otherwise…
Boebert no doubt does not understand the "nuance" – that Trump can be done as President but not done as a mean, vengeful, calculating influencer of millions of MAGAts. She also does not understand that winning by 500-some votes out of 327 thousand is not a mandate – from anyone.
Speaking as a creature of the FFA program, learning (and practicing) Roberts Rules of Order was an invaluable life skill that has served me well.
Heather Cox-Richardson is really great today. (Sorry to post such a long comment.)
HCR is correct about the history. It is easier and perhaps as accurate to say, the Republican party has, since FDR and the reviled John Maynard Keynes created it, done everything they could to destroy the “New Deal” and regress to the old deal.
That is why Republicans calling themselves “conservatives” has always been such a joke. It would be more accurate to call them, “the Regressive party”. They have attacked the poor and working Americans for long enough. They have created their own monster…to whom do they turn?
This is good:
How the Myths of the Past Distort Our Views of the Future
They don’t have enough self-awareness to be embarrassed:
Bishop’s words make sense when I consider that modern day Republicans only care about and talk to other Republicans. Those of us that aren’t in their party are non-people to them.
Not my Clown Show; Not my Rodeo.
I think that the democratic Representatives should show up wearing clown noses and cowboy hats. They could do a conga line as they march through the missing metal detectors.
Ridicule is good medicine, and it would gain attention. "We're only dressing up like clowns."
Yep, I am pretty sure the magnetometers have been removed. I wonder who is packing heat today?
It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt; possibly by one of those 20 whiny malcontents. One must ask why they want them removed.
like so much else, they've rejected magnetometers because
* "freedom" for the good guys and gals with gunz … how can they be certain to be protected unless they have their own personal weapon?
* Pelosi insisted on installation, so it must be wrong.
