The Endorsement Of Beto O’Rourke

We could have quite a debate as to who is the worst governor in America running for reelection in 2022, but no doubt Greg Abbott of Texas would be high on that list. While it may be a bit outside, there is a chance he can be knocked off even in an “off year” election.

An Ostrich In A Closet

It will come as no surprise to my regular readers that I am not a fan of banning books. There are many right wing disaffirmation books that I would like to see banned but censorship is not the way a free and functioning democracy works. We have to depend on citizens to be able to separate lies from truth – lately many are not doing a good job of that.

SPECIAL NOTICE – RECOMMENDED READING ADDITION

I just added The Woman They Could Not Silence by Kate Moore to the Recommended Reading List.   Moore’s book is the true story of Elizabeth  Packard.  Set primarily in 1860s America, it reads like a version of The Handmaid’s Tale, except is is true.  It chronicles the lack of independence women of the era experienced and the asylum system.

Everyone should read this book but especially younger women and those who don’t believe the MAGA crowd is evil.  This is the era many on the right thought was the last time America was great.
