One of my favorite musicals
T and R x 2, Ms. Benny!! 🙂 Happy Spring to you and everyone! I love those daffodils. That Beatle video is very fascinating, but I gotta say, my favorite period with them will always be the Early one: 1962-1964. There’s a joie de vivre vibe in those tunes that slowly faded out with the later stuff even though they were brilliant artistically. Just my $.02, LOL.
Proud Boys not so welcome in NYC
Oh, you mean the Puke(brain) Boys? You go, NYC!! 🙂 I still can’t get my head around LI voting in a yahoo like Santos?????!
Typical DeSh1tface stunt. You-know-what on him!
When I was attending junior high and high school, we did not have school buses, except for students who were attending “magnet” programs. Lunch wasn’t half as expensive as it is now. But I think universal lunch for pre-K to HS graduation seems reasonable if we have free bus rides.
Geez, we had free buses and lunches. What has happened to this country?
Let me explicate further: in the state of Texas, school buses were and still are the main transportation for rural areas. It was assumed (literally) that if you lived in town, your parents drove a car or could afford any transportation, then they would be responsible for your ride. This is pull up by the bootstraps mentality.
Just finished the Jacobin read. 🙂 Appreciated it. I went to public schools in 2 states: FL and MD. I also lived in a rural area which was slowly developing when I went to elementary school in MD. You are right about the buses being the primary/essential form of school transportation. Both of my parents worked. My gripe is the lunches. With all the food being wasted and discarded in this country, free school lunch should be imperative.
You know, it would really be nice to see a boatload of these while collar yahoos in serious prisons. Will it happen? Not under Byedone, look at his history.
One of the reasons I’m not sympathetic to the press’s coverage of Trump for a small hush money scandal is because if they had indicted him on tax evasion or fraud, then the banksters and billionaires who caused a lot of our economic woes would be afraid for the first time in going to jail. But the next best thing is for Jay Powell to be relieved of his duties.
Wokeness Has Replaced Socialism as the Great Conservative Bogeyman
AS it said socialism was the old boogie man for the GQP, now its woke as the new boogie man.I wonder what the next word the the GQP will use as thier new boogie man when woke is no longer effective?
Hell you could give the GQP a dictionary,tell them to look up woke and they still would be confused🤪🤪
Trump’s Brute Force Strategy To Make His Indictment Threat Universal
Man, hubster is keeping an eye on this one as is my NC BFF. I swear, if the orange goon gets indicted and put in an actual jail, someone will have to pick my pieces up off the floor.
Its the little thing that they get nailed on, Georgia isnt going well for cult -45 neither
US Maternal Mortality is 10 Times Higher than in Australia. Why?
Oh brother, I know I’m preaching to a very intelligent choir. 🙂 Pregnancy and childbirth are very risky natural processes even for the healthiest of women. That’s factoring in the 21st century advances in medicine. Now, stir in a jokecare “healthcare” system and religious nut backed anti-abortion. What’s the result? Increased female mortality!!!! Like duh!!! I’m becoming more and more convinced the stork dropped me in the wrong universe. 🙁
Wrong time period, maybe the wrong planet for me, BTW Orl my thoughts as well on your comment.
wi, it is beyond pathetic. Like we really want to live in the 15th century again.🤬
Mother nature is going into self preservation mode and we wont be much of a factor in her plans unless we change our ways and fast.
Majority of them are centrists in swing districts.
Hmmmm, interesting. Progressive grassroots need to swing into action if they haven’t already.
Hey, where’s Maxwell Frost? Guess his wipeout win last year scared off the goon squad GOPukes we’ve got down here. LOL 🙂
He may be put on the list if they knock out the centrists in the swing states, but as FL is a red state, they may not care as much.
Yes FL-10 is heavily Dem so wouldn’t be targeted by the Republicans.
It’s not just heavily Dem; it’s also full of young Indies. Frost actually won by a bigger percentage than Eskamani, and her win was decisive.👍
In the spirit of @orlbucfan who loves open threads, I present this YT.
👏😂Ms. Benny, you are BAD! Terrific even though I am sick to death of “Freebird.” That Skynard tune has been played beyond death down here.😣
I like the song but not enought to put it on my “hits” list on my phone
I guess Hawley isn’t running for POTUS, or at least next year.
HA- the first campaign add will show his running away on Jan 6th with this bold lettered phrase. He ran away from the enemy on Jan 6th, He’ll run away again when confronted by our enemies on the world stage.Is this whom you want to be President?
Going to be some very interesting US Senate races/primaries next year.
I don’t recall Whitehouse was much for social media when it came to committee reporting, but I’ve noticed it more after he took over the Senate Budget committee. Bernie remains on the committee.
Bernie probably has taught Sheldon a few tricks about communicating in the 21st century.
Wonder how $$big$$ his platinum severance/parachute is?
Good gawd, will the craporate environmental poisoning never end???
