I’m writing for tomorrow, day 121. I’m feeling groggy. I went out to do some chores early this morning before the heat hit, but was still uncomfortable, because it’s so humid. I overslept and feel like I need more sleep. I think that my COPD flaring up is why. Tomorrow ids a grocery delivery day. That means lots of house work.
Jig Zone Puzzle:
Today’s took me 3:13 (average 5:12). To do it, click here. How did you do?
From Lone Star Q (H/T Daily Kos): Mere months before Jonathan Saenz became president of the anti-gay group Texas Values, his wife left him for another woman, according to Hays County district court records obtained by Lone Star Q.
The revelation could help explain Saenz’s seemingly abrupt transformation from socially conservative lobbyist to homophobic firebrand.
Saenz, a devout Catholic, has been a right-wing operative in Texas for many years — working on abortion and religious liberty cases as a staff attorney for the Plano-based Liberty Legal Institute as far back as 2005. [emphasis added]
From YouTube: Woodie Guthrie – All You Fascists are Bound to Lose
It’s a few years old, but the sentiment remains valid, and the fascists remain Republican.
From Crooks and Liars: I’m surprised it took Fox News this long to find a racist scumbag like Fuhrman to explain to frightened Fox viewers why unarmed African-American kid Michael Brown deserved to take six bullets from a cop who is cowering somewhere out of the state of Missouri.
But they did. Evidently the KKK was booked elsewhere, perhaps on the streets of Ferguson, so Fuhrman showed up to blame the whole mess on Brown. In Fuhrman’s eyes — because he is all-seeing and magically teleported himself back to noon Central time on August 9th — clearly Mike Brown was the aggressor and deserved to be filled with a bunch of lead.
MAJOR Barf Bag Alert!!
This is the cop, whose racism was so intense and so obvious, that it made it possible for OJ Simpson to get away with murder. Is is any wonder that the Republican sheeple who say BA-A-A-A to the Republican Reichsministry of Propaganda, Faux Noise, appear to be even dimmer than just stupid?
