“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.”

CHIEF INJUSTICE ROBERTS GETS VERY NERVOUS ABOUT NON-WHITE, NON-CATHOLIC AMERICANS VOTING

“Instituionalist” Roberts has done as much as any individual in U.S. history to destroy democracy in this country. And his right-wing extremist brethren on the Court are totally in sync.

Expect the Supreme Court to complete its destruction of the Voting Rights Act this summer.

IF YOU’RE NOT WILLING TO SHREIK BACK AT BARTIROMO, DON’T GO ON HER SHOW

Maria Bartiromo’s pathetic attempt to prove herself worthy of the Fox “News” graveyard shift was in high gear during her “interview” assault on Rep. Dingell. Bartiromo lied, screamed, heckled with everything she had in her. Incredibly, Dingell didn’t seem prepared for it.

Democrats must not go anywhere near Fox “News” without special coaching and training by a dedicated staff of Fox-response specialists.

LINDSAY GRAHAM URGES DEMOCRATS TO DEFEND CUOMO AGAINST ABUSE ALLEGATIONS

That is, after all, the Republican model that Sen. Graham is extolling.

YES, MARIA BARTIROMO, THE ARTS HAVE BEEN HEAVILY HIT BY THE PANDEMIC

Belligerent, honking, lying, fishwife-styled elitist Bartiromo goes after Rep. Dingell and relief funds for the arts on Fox “News.” Bartiromo, someone devoid of ethics or integrity, is now auditioning for a night time slot alongside the rest of Fox’s evening sabbath of treasonous “news” ghouls.

IF SARKOZY CAN GO TO JAIL, SO CAN TRUMP

or is the U.S. going to prove itself less of an equal-opportunity-and-justice-for-all project than the former seat of the Bourbons?

I JUST LOVE CHOCOLATE BOX IMAGERY

No, of course I don’t.

But I make one exception: for a piece of needlepoint Grandma Sallie made for me, a while ago, say, in 1962. She had just lost sight in one eye from a diabetic stroke–was worried she wouldn’t be able to sew for much longer. She wound up living until 1989, and continued making things like fabric cushions at least through the 1970s. But I don’t remember any needlepoint by then.

On the wall I’ve got her petit point framed, a Harlequin vignette featuring a Fauntleroy-like dude wooing a belle with big old mouse-ear bows in her hair. Did she make the pattern herself? She’s signed her initials in embroidery and the year.

SEN. BLACKBURN HATES ARTS, MUSEUMS & LIBRARIES

I guess that that’s part of those Tennessee Christian values she’s always trumpeting.

Marsha Blackburn makes her hate official with her latest moronic denunciation.

You see, in Trumpworld, arts, museums and libraries, like nearly anything that enables, enriches, sustains the human spirit, are to be mocked and spurned. Libraries are probably the most dangerous because the more factual knowledge one possesses, the less likely to vote for the likes of Marsha Blackburn.

This is our GOP.

GOP LEADERS DON’T WANT A 1/6 INVESTIGATION THE SAME WAY BUSH & CHENEY WANTED TO LIMIT 9/11 INVESTIGATION

The radicalization of the Republic Party has been going on for a long time.

In the Washington Post, Greg Sargent hits the nail on the head about why the Republicans “don’t want a full reckoning.”

Hint: it has something to do with culpability. . .
