Credit where credit is due

Look, Mike Johnson is a right-wing Christianist theocrat, but he did the right thing on Ukraine aid. I get it. This was partly a power play on his part to show that he, and not MTG, is in control of the House. And if the deal was that Democrats will vote against a motion to vacate in return, I’m OK with that transaction. Mike Johnson and the politics of compromise Tags: Mike Johnson, the politics of...

Trump’s election interference trial in Manhattan

by Prof. Heather Cox Richardson Letters from an American What you are witnessing here is something a regular citizen would not have the ability to do in a court of law. So far, the court has shown much lenience for his and his attorneys’ antics. I have not seen this being tolerated. It is meant to wear the system down or provoke a response from the judges. A response which would play back to the fools in support of trump. Wisely, the court...

Meanwhile, enjoy Annie from Annie Asks You on this Sunday morning. ~~~~~~~~ And JUST...

Sovereign citizens

Visiting writer’s commentary on Sovereign Citizens by Infidel753 from his own Blog of similar name. Readers may be unfamiliar with the “sovereign citizen” movement, a fringe ideological belief system which asserts (for complex, fatuous, and extremely boring reasons) that certain everyday laws either do not exist, are not real laws, or at least don’t apply to individuals who assert some imaginary special status that makes them exempt. In...

The dose makes the poison

When I was growing up in East Tennessee in the 1960s, there was a local grocery chain owner and right-wing politician named Cas Walker who railed about, among other things, water fluoridation. Water fluoridation was alleged to be a communist plot. If so, then God must be a communist, since water in some parts of the country is naturally fluoridated. In fact, that natural fluoridation, and its correlation with lower incidence of tooth decay, helped...

April 20 1999 25 Years after Columbine

Firearms and Public Health in the United States David Hemenway, Ph.D New England Journal of Medicine I have added things I know of to this article. I have an aversion to the word gun or guns by themselves. So get used to it if you expect to comment on this issue. Firearms are killing tools. If you shoot targets like I did pre-USMC, you get really good at staying in the black at various distances. This is a good article. It keeps the...

More than a million people in America’s prisons and jails have behavioral health conditions

Debra A. Pinals The Pew Charitable Trusts It has been a while since I talked about prisons. I have been in each level, up to a level 4 as a visitor. Spend hours talking to a prisoner. Eight hours out and 16 locked down at that level. They remain in their seats and you go to the canteen machines to buy the candy. It is not pretty and it never was to be a solution for their being there. The author touches upon those with mental illness who most...

Texas Seniors Suddenly Lose Medicare Benefits

Suzanne Blake Newsweek Nothing unique here. Just another Texas screwup while trying to eliminate people from state and federal programs. The problem being they mistakenly injure the innocents. No problem though, it happens in other states or so Texans claim. Hundreds of Texas seniors lost their Medicare benefits after Texas Health and Human Services made an error in the Medicare Savings Program. “Medicare is health insurance for people...
