  1. Ah yes, Arlo Guthrie. The local classic rock station plays it at noon every year. It's kinda funny. Thanksgiving as a holiday had nothing to do with the Pilgrims. Lincoln established it to give thanks that the Civil War was going to be won. And democracy, the idea that "all men are created equal" would be preserved. So it's especially appropriate this year. https://www.facebook.com/heathercoxrichardson/?__cft__[0]=AZVHZGkSiHx2hfmdZxV1TJeP7WTK1p4aE_ygBIQF-YdKkSrp8cBJvfZUqUtIqHOCJXZqkQhvWpYx-ZPbgeMYsRseoVpx1gzgEkrJllVDmB5biQddvAxxWROii5J1f2JBNDAaM7FBDjMU-4hSNX6XLfNoWslyiRRnWFbCPbJtmugwGQ&__tn__=-UC%2CP-R
  2. I agree that gun rights are important, and it's really disheartening to see the NRA go down the tubes the way they are, but they got arrogant and stupid. Now there are consequences. The shit they are accused of are crimes. The money they funnelled from Russia was also criminal. Even without the criminal crap, they had become shrill and repetitive, to the point that they lost a lot of people. They claimed that every election was a referendum on gun rights, and if they people they didn't like won, that gun rights would be 'destroyed'. Over and over again. Yet, even with Obama in the White House for 8 years, no substantive gun control measures were passed. I hope that another organization will step up, but nobody out there has the history and exposure. As an alternative, I hope a group of 'NRA opposition' can take control and clean it up. Not sure if that's even possible.
  3. Not sure what you mean. Ford was VP long before Nixon resigned. Nixon had resigned before Ford pardoned him. None of Nixon's crimes benefitted Ford in any way I can think of. The only 'benefit' was that Nixon got caught trying to cover it up, had to resign and Ford took over. Not exactly the same as Flynn illegally meeting with Russians before Trump became president, then lying to the FBI about it to try to help keep Trump out of trouble.
  4. Wow. He blantantly and publicly refuses to obey a lawful order. That has consequences. Now he tears up the ticket he was given. Not 'the fine'. The citation. I hope he wrote down the court date. Failure to appear generally results in an arrest warrant (bench warrant) being issued. Typically, the bail for that warrant is the amount of the fine on the citation. Also, any business licence he may have will be suspended if he choses to ignore the citation. Gotta love how his buddy in the county government has started a GoFundMe to pay the fine.
  5. The Flynn pardon is interesting. It's one of the few that I can think of where the President pardoned someone who committed a crime that furthered the interests of that particular President. Bush commuted Scooter Libby's sentence, similar to Trump commuting Stones. But those aren't pardons. One 'fun' part of that is that if Flynn is subpoenaed to testify, he can no longer 'claim the 5th' and refuse to testify. Could prove interesting before, say, a congressinal inquiry.
  6. Oh hell yeah. She's turned into a hell of a Trumpette. Also a Qcumber. And a Scientologist. Clearly her critical thinking skills are just awesome.
  7. Yup. Saw that on FB. As was asked - Who the hell is current on a DC-9 these days?
  8. Ya know? I was thinking about including the Forrest Gump quote. It really fits.
  9. Who thinks Covid is a hoax? Who thinks Q is real? Who thinks Trump won the election? Who thinks there's widespread voting fraud? Who has fallen for Trump's con job? Who thinks HRC had anything to do with Benghazi?
  10. Yeah, maybe. But the more I think about it, the more I doubt it will happen. The idea of resigning to allow Pence to pardon him is a bit more 'planning & thinking & shit' than he's shown ANY ability or willingness to do. It was pointed out that lots of his supporters thought that his claims of fraud and all that were part of some sort of 'master plan'. Which goes against all the evidence that he's NEVER had any real plan at all, for anything. Ever.
  11. Yeah, except he knows that accepting a pardon means admitting wrongdoing. He learned that when he pardoned Arpaio.
  12. I wasn't aware of that, but I'm not surprised. I'd still like to see him say it again, to make it really clear. To contrast himself with the Orange Idiot and "lock her up!"
  13. Somewhat random thought: I'd like to see Biden appoint a serious, dedicated, well respected professional as AG. And when he gets nominated, I'd like to see Biden say something to the effect of: 'I'm appointing (insert name here) because he (or she) is a long time professional, known and respected by both friend and foe. My only order will be 'enforce the law'. I won't say to go after this person or to leave that person alone. I won't interfere in any prosecution. My only expectation is that he (or she) will prosecute those who commit crimes to the appropriate extent. To show no favor in any direction based on position, skin color or wealth.' The idea that Trump should be left alone because his supporters might make trouble is really stupid. First off, as noted above, they're mostly a bunch of posers, wannabes & bullies. Very few of them will actually stand up and fight. Those few that will should suffer the consequences of their actions. The FBI is pretty good at that sort of thing. Second, it sets the precedent that those who make a lot of threats will be allowed to intimidate the government. The 'will of the people' should only go so far, and preventing prosecution of actual crimes is way beyond where it should be.
  14. Well, she's apparently going to continue to file baseless and futile lawsuits. As a "private citizen".
  15. Trump campaign ditches Sidney Powell. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/22/us/politics/sidney-powell-trump.html?campaign_id=9&emc=edit_nn_20201123&instance_id=24380&nl=the-morning&regi_id=118682468&segment_id=45216&te=1&user_id=94f58d5b96ea75e238c5bfb8bc8f5a2c
