• Left and Right
KT: The right has no self-awareness at all. They accused us of Trump Derangement but look at how they flip out over Biden. The right is a farce.
Newt Gingrich was the first to realize that the U.S. system was running mainly on convention rather than rules. Like an enterprising gamer, he found bugs in the democratic system he could exploit for political gain. It's been the right-wing playbook ever since, barely challenged by the corporate left. This, along with the end of Fairness in Broadcasting, began the shifting of the Overton Window from principled opposition to death to our enemies.
It's easy to understand why people are upset. It's too hard to get by. Why is everything important so expensive? Why has life been getting harder instead of easier for decades? Why is the earth becoming unlivable?
The answer is disgustingly obvious. Capitalism alone doesn't work. We have got to enlarge our thinking or die.
What will it take?
• Totalitarian Biden
Lendy: The U.S. is becoming a totalitarian state under Biden!
Oh, the totalitarianism - of the majority of voters, to enact sinister policies - for better health. Watch out, you might live longer.
• Coke and a Smile
KT: Coca-Cola Corp just stepped in it. A leaked memo says they are using sensitivity training to get people to be "less white," also "less arrogant, less certain, less defensive, less ignorant and more humble."
Lendy: Can you imagine telling people to be "less Asian" or "less Black?" That's racist as hell!
I'm not offended in the least. I wish everyone would be "less arrogant, less certain, less defensive, less ignorant and more humble," especially those in historically dominant positions in the social hierarchy.
• End Times Israel
Wendy: Now Biden will not even say if Israel is an important ally or not.
Lendy: Of course they are. American Evangelicals are very supportive of Israel.
The reason why many American evangelical Christians support Israel is a very cynical one which I'm surprised any Jewish person is okay with. Evangelicals think modern Israel is a portent of the End Times, when Jesus will return and when two-thirds of Jews (those who fail to accept Him) will be killed (Zechariah 13:8-9).
• Trump Acquitted
Soho: I think they are going to acquit Trump of inciting insurrection.
Too: He's an ass, but this falls far short of the legal definition of incitement.
The emphasis should never have been on whether Trump "incited," which is unfortunately rather subjective. However there is no question that he wanted the election results overturned and told his boobs they could make it happen. Then he let them rampage unchecked for hours, then he "loved" what they did.
Soho: They did it. Senate voted 57 - 43 to acquit.
Trump is guilty of insurrection.
Play fascist games, win fascist prizes.
