This comes from J.L. in Los Angeles, via Electoral Vote. Already, people are reporting that it helped convince a friend to get vaccinated.
In this case, SOS stands for Save Our Snopes. I’m sure all my regular readers know who Snopes is. But do you know that Snopes has been under attack? There is a chance that we could lose them, so they are sending out an SOS call. If you want to find out more about this, […]
Comics don’t need to make anything up anymore, because reality is more bizarre than anyone can actually imagine. Trump’s base has absolutely gone off the deep end, and because they can change the result of a Republican primary, they are taking Republican politicians with them. Where do we go from here?
Last week, Newsmax host Rob Schmitt was talking with a Texas A&M professor on the air, and got philosophical: You know, one thing I’ve always thought, and maybe you can guide me on this because, obviously, I’m not a doctor. But I’ve always thought about vaccines, and I always think about just nature and the […]
Was it ever in doubt that as soon as we started getting vaccinated, that people would get complacent and the first holiday weekend that came along would cause a spike in Covid cases? What’s really ironic about this is that the cases are all located in places where people haven’t been getting vaccinated much. You […]
I want to wish a happy 75th wedding anniversary to Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter. That’s the longest marriage in presidential history. There is a lovely story in the Washington Post about them.
People often talk about the “big lie”, which had its origins with the Nazis. But now we have a new definition, as “big lie” now seems to refer to Trump’s constant assertion that he won the presidential election and is the rightful president of the US.
First, Tucker Carlson claims that the Biden administration is spying on him, in an effort to get him off the air on Fox News. Seriously? You need to spy on Carlson, when he never stops spewing lies and bullshit every day? Second, House minority leader Kevin McCarthy pulls out his chickenshit plausible deniability to spout […]
This is not anything new. Remember Benghazi? How about Pizzagate? Don’t worry, as fast as we debunk one conspiracy theory, they come up with another, more terrifying one. In fact, to them the only thing that isn’t a real threat is the Jan 6 insurrection. Those were just tourists!
I’m back from my vacation in Iceland, where I got up close and personal with a volcano, and spent more time than you can imagine hanging out in hot water. I had a wonderful time. So I come home to the irony that the former occupant actually wanted to use the Justice department to investigate […]
Today there is a story that is pretty much a canonical example of irony. The story comes from CNN, who note that one of the people charged in the January 6 insurrection and riot was caught on video using a bullhorn to heckle Capitol Police by saying that they were “protecting pedophiles”. This appears to […]
Republicans seem hell-bent on passing off the January 6 insurrection as a normal day of tourism. They will pretend it never happened. And now Donald Trump is claiming that not only did he win the election, but that he will be reinstalled as the president by August. Is he delusional? Is he acting crazy so […]
Vernon Jones used to be a Democrat, serving in the Georgia House of Representatives twelve years until 2021. He switched to the Republican Party in January 2021 after endorsing Donald Trump for re-election and then speaking at the 2020 Republican National Convention. He is currently a candidate in the GOP primary for Georgia governor. Jones […]
All federal elected officials swear or affirm an oath to support the constitution before they can assume their office. This includes the President, Senators, and Representatives to Congress. For example, here is the oath for Senators: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against […]
