Charlottesville Snapshot

I urge you to watch the short documentary above. But I warn you, it’s very disturbing. Below I list some quotations from the 22 minute video on the Charlottesville horror. These people were in Charlottseville when they made their comments.

  • “We’ll fucking kill these people if we have to.”
  • Referring to the driver who ran

Liars Lie. That’s What Liars Do…

Linda Sarsour Creative Commons By: Festival of Faiths

Out of one (two, three…) mouth(s), this administration promotes hatred, anti-semitism, intolerance, racism, homophobia, fear of Muslims and disdain for immigrants as rapists and terrorists…

If you don’t know about Steve Bannon’s agenda, more will come on that later.

But when Pence sees an opportunity to contrast himself just a bit from his boss and his boss’ chief counsel and … Continue reading

Pence and The 25th Amendment

Question-Mark-CC-By-Chris-Potter-Flickr

I shudder for the inevitable upcoming day when Mr. Pence becomes—by way of the 25th Amendment, perhaps—the 46th President of the United States.

Pence Muslim Ban Tweet

It was December 8, 2015–just over a year ago. Then Governor Mike Pence tweeted. His tweet was liked by 154,552 people. It was retweeted 211,730 times. His tweet was simple and to the point:

“Calls to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. are offensive and unconstitutional.”

Minnie Pearl – 1965

I’m old enough to remember hearing this  Buck Owens/Roy Clark song on the TV show “Hee Haw” in the 1970s:

Gloom, despair, and agony on me

Deep dark depression, excessive misery

If I had no bad luck, I’d have no luck at all
