Another Reason To Celebrate

This may not be most people’s biggest American political story of last week, but it is mine. Last week we saw that in 2024 America capitalism and collective labor action works much better and faster than our courts do. Doubt me? Read on as I explain.

Progressive Sweeping LVII

It’s another one of those days where I have let a lot of things that I want to at least mention accumulate. Without further ado, let’s go.

And The ’24 Winner Is…

Tonight New Hampshire will announce the results of its 2024 Republican presidential primary. I’ll tell you winner right now; it will be Donald Trump. In the paragraphs below I’ll tell you who will win the general. Well, sort of anyway.

What’s Going On In Your House

Timestamp: Monday morning, Martin Luther King Day

As I pen this another possible government shutdown looms. The current House Speaker, Mike Johnson, is part of a leadership agreement on a budget (which is already months late – students try that in your school work. No don’t, I’m only being sarcastic!) The most radical of the House GOP members are floating the idea of firing Johnson, like they did Kevin McCarthy, for his agreeing to keep the government open. That agreement doesn’t look like it will get across the finish line and the most viable alternative I’ve heard kicked around is another continuing resolution (CR) with a two-pronged end date. Instead of working on getting the government funded a significant portion of the House GOP is either trying to impeach President Biden and/or a significant number of the members of his Cabinet all without cause or proof of impeachable offenses. In addition to that it appears at least two female GOP House members, (Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia and Nancy Mace of South Carolina), are obsessed with Hunter Biden’s genitalia. (Do you know how difficult it is to keep this PG sometimes?) Oh, and that isn’t even the primary catalyst for today’s rant.

Your Retribution Opportunity

I have to begin this piece with a word of credit and thanks to Steve Brodner who, in his opinion piece of January 2, 2024 in the Washington Post entitled, These politicians denied democracy on Jan. 6. Now they want your vote., did much of my research work. As of this writing there are 147 Republicans who voted not to certify the electoral college results of the 2020 election despite overwhelming evidence to the back up said results and even after they were attacked by domestic terrorists earlier in the day on January 6, 2021. Several have been implicated in complicity in the planning and/or execution of the illegal events of that day. By virtue of this vote, all 147 of them are in my opinion and that of many, many others, at minimum, accessories after the fact.
