Random thoughts Friday, Volume LXIX

  • Message every Democratic candidate must repeat:  “I’m not just pro-America; I’m pro-democracy.  And I’m going to Washington to save ours.”
  • First question for every debate moderator for every office:  “You’re for revoking Roe.  If your daughter is raped and becomes pregnant, would you require her to raise the child and interact with her rapist because he’s the child’s father?”
  • Amy Coney Barrett writing that there’s not a sufficient supply of infants for adoptions in the United States is disgusting.  There are at least 400,000 children in foster care.  There are millions of children available for adoption around the world.  For her to claim that older children and foreign children are not worthy of her consideration for adoption is vile.  
  • I swear Barrett has some type of Munchhausen syndrome, in that she thinks parents MUST have attention fawned on them when they have an infant, attention they wouldn’t get if the new family addition was older.  She reminds me of my first wife, who wanted the wedding but she didn’t want the marriage.  
  • Barrett’s the type of person who would never buy a used car because the radio may have once had a pre-set to a rock-n-roll station and it is therefore unclean.  
  • Nutty conservatives think the leak of the SCOTUS Roe opinion was a planned distraction to take attention away from a Dinesh D’Sousa “documentary” about “fraud” in the 2020 election because they are that delusional.
  • The Five Subpoenaed House Republicans are in a pickle:  they can’t testify, but if they don’t comply with the subpoena, no Democrat will honor any subpoena Republicans may issue if they get back the majority.  They’re poisoning their own well for Trump.
  • Home Covid tests are skewing the number of reported cases.  My completely uninformed estimate:  official numbers should be doubled.  
  • Twenty years ago, Republicans were all over the media shouting that the US had to intervene in Iraq because babies were being taken out of incubators.  That story was complete bullshit, created by the GW Bush administration to justify the invasion, but they believed it and touted it all over the media.  Now, Russia bombs schools, hospitals and civilian apartment buildings in Ukraine, and Repubicans decide that’s not our problem because Russia’s doing it.  
  • Donald Trump potentially returning to Twitter will be the end of him politically.  In the 16 months since he was exiled, people have enjoyed the lack of daily existential anxiety that his multiple idiotic, inflammatory tweets caused.  Voters will not want to return to that.  The Democrats need to make a commercial spotlighting that aspect of his term.  
  • Finland and Sweden joining NATO would add a lot of top end military to NATO forces, an added bonus to the alliance’s military might.  Now just add the battle experience of the Ukrainians.  
  • This year’s graduates joining the workforce are entering the most worker-friendly market in the last 30 years.  
  • When the anti-abortion office bombing is shown to be a false-flag operation, conservatives will just say, “Yeah, but Jussie Smollett…” ‘cause they got nuthin’.  
  • Still going with Kavanaugh as the source of the leak.  And still saying my back-ups are Alito and/or Thomas.  
  • Putin invaded Ukraine ostensibly to improve Russian security.  He succeeded in destroying Russian military readiness.  Besides the blood and treasure, Russia cannot replace the expended (and destroyed) weapons and equipment because their economy is so weak.
  • Watching the intentional and planned character assassination of a Black woman from Pennsylvania by Fox hosts–obviously in conjunction with the Trump camp–is a pleasure to watch.  Republicans in disarray!
  • It seems we’ve been battling a lot of really unsophisticated trolls who rely on tired talking points and really bad manners.  If they were even mildly witty, they could’ve stayed longer.  
  • Yes, avocado is a popular toast topping for now, and it’s not bad.  But butter will always be the King of Toast Toppings.  Other favorites:  a good jelly or jam; honey; cream cheese (flavored work, or plain with smoked salmon); hummus with olive tapenade.  Only white or wheat toast should be used for a BLT… maybe sourdough.  Toast is also a good impromptu pizza crust with tomato sauce and a slice of mozzarella.  
  • We’ve started our collection of plants that will be dead by August.  I’m betting the orchid goes first.
