We had a simple hope. Americans would make the easiest, most logical and humane choice on 11/3.

All we wanted was for America to choose justice over injustice, unity over division, equality over racist oppression.

But almost half of America’s voters refused.

In fact, counting everyone not voting for Biden…


My South Carolina neighbors have increased their target shooting. The law here says no one can shoot a firearm within 300 yards of a residence. They’re at about 200 feet, and it’s clearly with high-powered rifles. (The time between the gunshot and the sound of the struck target reaching us…


I’m nothing special, but I try not to be pretentious about it.

Oops. I failed again…….


Congratulations!”

“You, and you alone, as the LAST REPUBLICAN, now own ALL of us LIBS!!”

“Can I get you some juice? Maybe a blanket? I’d offer to connect you to your anti-vaxx Facebook page, but as repub numbers dwindled so rapidly, so did FB profits, until…. And, d’uh, there’s no…


So, the question becomes;

Is this collection of The Guardian news stories considered to be “Most viewed” because we pursue stories of misery and destruction, or is this just an average day, and we don’t even recognize that this is no longer even necessarily the first “stop” on our now rapid descent into hell?

Yes, I’m aware that I’m going to die. We all will, if only when the sun eventually expands to embrace this dead rock billions of years from now. …


This is very brief, for now. Minutes ago I acquired The Long Southern Strategy by Maxwell and Shields, and I suspect I’ll have more to say. But for now, the idea is very simple:

It is seemingly very easy to imagine that one of the aspects of America’s racial (and…


This week an American Supreme Court composed overwhelming of judges anointed(not sic) by Mitch McConnell may announce their consideration to decide the future of affirmative action in America, possibly leading towards overthrowing a precedent considering such race-based decisions in America established over 400 years ago, long before America even was…
