A lefty (both senses) SF fan retired from a career in public service, currently living in Madison, Wisconsin, a state so wonderful people are willing to put up with the winters just to live here.

    Given her crazy schedule, she probably feeds it whenever she has a spare moment.

    I’d have a lot more respect for the anti-abortion people if they weren’t also opposed to sex education and birth control. Those would do more to reduce the demand for abortion than all of their foaming at the mouth and moralizing.

    “Sir, do you know what the speed limit is here?”

    “Oh, wow, man, sorry, I wasn’t paying attention. What is it?”

    “It’s 65, sir.”

    “Bummer, dude. How fast was I going?”

    “22, sir.”

    Face reality, folx. If it weren’t for the good work of Stacey Abrams in getting Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock elected to the Senate from Georgia, nobody would give a rat’s ass what Joe Manchin thot about anything, and Joe Biden’s big plans for a Newer Deal would be as DOA as Merrick Garland’s appointment to the Supreme Court.

    Osama bin Laden was a much, much, much better Republican than Cheney or Bush. He got way more bang for the buck. He managed to kill his 3000 Americans for about a million bucks, or $333 each. Cheney and Bush offed 4500 Americans in Iraq (the wrong country) at a cost of $1.5 trillion, or $333,333,333 each. And, for an encore, they invaded Afghanistan (where bin Laden wasn’t hiding), for another $2 trillion, or $488,000,000 for each of the 4100 dead Americans we racked up there.

    It’s a an open question who America’s real enemies are, but there’s no doubt who’s better at business.

    What average Americans want is in fact bipartisan. It’s only the elected officials who take the pissing contest so seriously.

    When will this stupid country face up to the fact that any “crisis at our southern border” is just our diseased chickens coming home to roost, due to the asinine, expensive, counter-productive, dehumanizing, corrupt War on Drug-Using Americans? Not only does that support the USA’s organized-crime syndicates by giving them an unregulated monopoly, it drives billions and billions of dollars per year into the greedy hands of the Latin American drug lords, criminal cartels, and corrupt governments, whose fights over all that American loot are what’s making life miserable for the average citizens of those countries.

    It’s even worse in Afghanistan, home to 90% of the world’s opium poppies, where Americans are financing both sides of our longest-running war.

    Wanna address the immigration “problem”? Legalize drugs! Turn their abuse into a medical issue, not a criminal one. Convert dealers from back-alley crooks to successful entrepreneurs, just as welcome in the Jaycees as the brewers and tavern owners were after the repeal of our original god-awful blunder with Prohibition!
