Random thoughts Friday, Volume LXX

  • The GOP effort to “expunge” Trump’s impeachments is literally an attempt to rewrite history.  
  • Under the laws against critical race theory being taught in schools in Florida and Texas, teachers would not be able to address their students’ questions about the Buffalo massacre.  They would not be allowed to address anything relating to race, including condemning the people who murder based on race.
  • White conservatives are scared about becoming the minority in the US because their biggest fear is that the minorities will treat them like they’ve treated minorities their entire lives.  
  • Virtually every GOP candidate for federal office will air a commercial of himself firing an assault rifle at “legislation” they don’t like as if that’s a rational act, and they wonder why their followers eventually turn their guns on people they don’t like. 
  • Does anybody really like Bit O’Honeys?  What about Mary Janes?  I mean, besides dentists.
  • I’m not saying all people who invoke Donald Trump in this election are racists; I’m saying racists will always invoke Donald Trump and seek his support. 
  • There are 27 state Secretaries of State seats that will be filled in the midterm election.  Of those state races, 14 of them have GOP nominees/leading candidates that promote Trump’s Big Lie.  In Pennsylvania, if Mastriano wins, he’ll appoint one to that state’s office. If even half of them get into office, the 2024 election may be the last election as we’ve known it in the United States.
  • Gunsplainer:  “You cannot infringe on when and where I can carry my gun.”  Me:  “Scalia said differently in Heller.”  Gunsplainer:  “HE DID NOT!”  Me:  [quotes Page 2 of Heller in which Scalia explicitly states that gun regulations about when and where you can carry a gun are legal.]  Gunsplainer:  “THAT’S NOT WHAT HE MEANT!!!!”
  • I don’t care who Elon Musk says he’s going to vote for.  Ya know why?  Because even though he has a few billion dollars more than me, his vote has the exact same power as mine.
  • Two Democratic politicians had strokes last week.  It was a story for about two news cycles.  If those were Republicans, the House GOP would demand Congressional hearings to look into how Democrats caused this, and Fox would feature chyrons reading “Democrats poison Patriots” and “Why is AOC smiling?  What does she know?”
  • Elected Republicans are fond of calling Democrats “socialists,” “communists” and “globalists” (without actually understanding what those words mean).  On the campaign trail, Democrats should call them what they are:  fascists and autocrats.  
  • I have no sorrow or pity for Madison Cawthorn.  He got the outcome he cultivated through his arrogant, obnoxious behavior.  Like Boebert and Greene, if he had learned how to properly navigate the political landscape instead of intentionally carpet bombing it, he might have been able to have a career in DC, but no one–including himself–could control his baser impulses.
  • MAGA 2024:  Make America Garbage Again. … ‘cause everything Trump touches dies, sometimes twice.
  • If Republicans want to repeal the Johnson Amendment, which prevents religious organizations from engaging in politics, it must include a revocation of churches’ tax free status.  That will push many of these Cash for Jesus evangelicals to end their endorsement of the move because they value money over message.
  • I’ve never had a trusted regular auto mechanic.  I feel like I missed something by not being able to go to an old fashioned auto shop and say simply, “Hi, Bob, take care of her, okay?”
  • I do not consider “hard” pretzels–the thick kind–to be junk food.  The tiny thin ones, in any form (pretzel, grid, stick)? Yes, those are junk food.  And Combos are an abomination that should be restricted to college campuses where they belong.
  • Swear to fucking God, I’ve used expletives more this week than pretty much any week in my entire life.  The troll toll is accumulating.
  • Most iconic movie cars:  The king is the DeLorean from Back to the Future.  The other top ones:  Herbie the Love Bug, the Bluesmobile, The Bandit’s Trans Am, Thelma & Louise’s T-Bird, and any of James Bond’s Aston Martins.  I will not go near Christine.  But the car I want is The Graduate’s Alfa Romeo Spider.
  • Is it really Friday?  It seems we’ve packed ten days into this week.
