Do you think Trump will ever get prosecuted, convicted, and do jail time after he leaves office?

I can think of a whole host of crimes, federal and state, which he probably committed and for which he deserves punishment. Do you think that America has the stomach to prosecute a former POTUS? Personally, I think that he needs to be made an example of no one is above the law, and corrupt venal politicians will not be tolerated.

Texas senate race is on!

John Cornyn calls MJ Hegar a "liberal." Then she labels him "a spineless bootlicker."

Hoo boy!

Will Trump carve his name in the Resolute Desk?

"Trump was here."

He's nasty enough to do it.

Keep those cash registers ringing!

Republicans care only about money. Keep those cash registers ringing. No matter if people get sick and maybe die. There's a surplus of unemployed people to fill the jobs of those, who get hauled off in an ambulance.

They don't seem to realize that hospitalized and DEAD people don't shop much.

As long as we're getting rid of monuments to slave owners,

shouldn't the electoral college also be on the list?

My favorite picture of Obama

Shows his humanity and yes basic kindness and decency.

Trump's speech on racism

Various cable news are reporting that the WH is considering letting Trump make a speech on racism. Now I usually make a point of switching the channel whenever he appears on TV. But I don't think I could resist watching the colassal butt show of a Dimwit speech about racism. A speech that would surely include every dog whistle and white racist platitude possible. Completely miss the point of social justice and BLM. Have no solutions. Probably announce some commission composed of more of his asshole grifter cronies, and be derided far and wide.

And gosh golly, we would surely get the additional delightful treat of asshole Republican congressmen and senators praising his speech and mouthing their own empty platitudes.

A Trump speech on racism. I get excited just thinking about it.

Goya's Black Paintings

i cannot help but be reminded of the depravity of the Trump administration and his GOP enablers, when I look at Goya's Black Paintings

"Saturn Devouring His Son" as Trump himself



"Men Reading" as GOP Senators reading a proposed Dem bill

"A Pilgrimage to San Isidro" as Trump's voters

When do we call them DEPRAVED?

Def: depraved
adjective

morally corrupt; wicked.
"a depraved indifference to human life"

I want to see the word, "depraved," used more and more as to the behavior of Trump, his supporters, and all GOP sycophants and enablers. I want to see the word depraved go viral. I want to see it in TV ads, billboards, bumper stickers, protest signs.

What else would you call anyone, who continually lies about Covid testing, who confiscates PE, who forces workers back into dangerous jobs, who does NOTHING to help us?

Folks what we are witnessing is criminal depraved indifference that has led to manslaughter on a massive scale.

Right speech is one of virtues that we Buddhist try to practice.

Right speech is one of the steps on the Buddhist 8-Fold Path to enlightenment. Right speech includes speaking gently, purposely, and truthfully. It means no lying, no harsh speech, no divisive speech, and no gossip or idle chatter.

“Lying leads to a life in which others will speak ill of you. Lying also establishes a tendency to lie in future lives, as well as the chances of being lied to and not being believed when you speak the truth. The future life consequences of Divisive Speech include loneliness and a tendency to make mischief with other people’s lives. Harsh Speech begets the abuse of others and leads to an angry attitude. Idle Gossip causes others not to listen and leads one to speak incessantly."
