Closing Thought–19Jul22

Events for the last 4 or 5 months have made it impossible for me to continue a regular feature here on IST……all the war in Ukraine and SCOTUS decisions and mass shootings etc….I will try to resurrect this feature.

This one for the “Can’t Fix Stupid’ files……education is the issue of this moronic statement…..

Vice News reports that a prospective GOP nominee for Maryland attorney general does not fit anything close to the Hogan mold.

Specifically, the publication notes that Maryland AG hopeful Michael Peroutka is a former board member of the neo-Confederate League of the South who says he’s “still angry” that Maryland was not able to secede during the American Civil War.

Additionally, Peroutka believes that LGBTQ marriage and abortion should be outlawed for going against “God’s law,” and he has also criticized the entire concept of public education as a communist plot whose goal is to “transform America away from a Christian worldview.”

A Communist plot?

Seriously?

You can tell he is an old fart…..clinging to the bullshit of socialism/Communism….a tired, very tired piece of crap.

Why do Christian seem to hate an educated person?

Just another fine example that “You Can’t Fix Stupid”!

Any thoughts to share?

2022 A GOP ‘What If’

It is time to take your mind out of YouTube and Twitter and the rest of the mind numbing BS and pay attention to what will happen in the mid-terms of 2022.

This country needs help…..and if the indicators are accurate there is an excellent chance that the GOP will control the House and possibly the Senate…..if that is accurate then what do we have to look forward to with one party in control?

My thoughts are they a will go after Social Security, gay rights, more abortion stuff, etc…..here is a look at what Mother Jones thinks it will look like…..

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell about how Republicans would govern if they reclaimed both congressional chambers in the upcoming midterm elections. 

“That is a very good question,” McConnell replied. “And I’ll let you know when we take it back.”

But you don’t have to wait until after the November midterm elections to know what a huge faction of Republicans have in mind. A little-noticed budget document, the Blueprint to Save America, released in June by the Republican Study Committee, details the group’s priorities. Since nearly 75 percent of Republican House lawmakers are RSC members, these priorities are shared by a majority of the GOP caucus. The 122-page manifesto, containing a laundry list of longstanding conservative desires, calls for significantly reducing the size of America’s social safety net, drastically limiting abortion access nationwide, effectively throwing in the towel on combatting climate change, raising the age requirement to receive full Social Security benefits, cracking down on transgender rights, and making it easier for Americans to carry concealed weapons. 

If Republicans Retake Congress In November, Here’s What Their Agenda Will Look Like

Just like the state GOPs there agenda has NOTHING to do with moving the country forward, if anything it is going backwards to the 1950s…..it will be more about attacking social programs and helping making war more likely.

This republic is dying slowly and today’s GOP is added to the suffering before the death…..and few see the demise on the horizon because they refuse to look at the big picture just focus on their own petty desires.

Are you worried about the mid-terms?  Well you should be….actually you should be terrified!

Over the past few months, I’ve read how terrible this election cycle is for President Joe Biden and the entire Democratic Party. The House will flip in November, and the Senate looks headed that way as well.

Inflation has made Biden the least popular president in the history of the planet, and a recession is on the horizon. Democrats complain that Biden has been either too pragmatic or not pragmatic enough, and many think their party must dump him to have any chance of winning in 2024.

The next week, I read that candidates still matter and Republicans are nominating enough crazy people to the Senate that Democrats now have a very good chance of keeping control of the chamber, or even adding to their numbers.

Not only that, but Trump is meeting with advisers, supporters, and deep-pocketed financial contributors. He’ll be announcing his candidacy soon, which will whip his supporters — and Democrats — into a frenzy, likely turning the 2022 midterms into something akin to the 2024 presidential contest, without the actual presidential race being on the ballot.

Pay attention…learn the issues….and think of your country not your silly desires.
