anything newsworthy today?

Trump threw a temper tantrum when the secret service refused to take him to the Capitol. He assaulted his driver, tried to grab the steering wheel, and demanded that the guy do as he says because "I'm the f***ing president." Trump wanted to lead the mob from the front, march into the senate chamber, and stop the certification process.

He asked that the mob be let onto the scene without having to go through metal detectors and didn't care if they had assault rifles because "they're not here to hurt me." Meaning he was fine with having an armed mob storm the capitol with assault rifles.

He also was prone to throwing temper tantrums in the White House dining room, throwing his meals against the wall, breaking plates, pulling the tablecloth off and dumping everything on the floor, whenever he didn't get his own way. The ketchup on the wall was a result of him being told that there was no evidence of losing the election to voter fraud.

Seems like the 2020 election was his first ever experience of someone saying "no" to him and his toddler-like mind was incapable of processing it.
eamon and hurl still watching msnbc I see

The states will decide their policies going forward and even the most strict ones will have a clause in there for rape or incest I would think .
The zeal with which some protesters have about this issue is bordering on demonic also my body my choice except if itís a new vaccine , total loons

That's extremely naive. Missouri has already outright banned abortion and is looking at contraception. A huge amount of rights derived from RvW's principle of privacy. The state has now awarded itself huge power over it's citizens. Everythimg from abortion to interracial marraige is up in the air.

Christ. You are proving his point.

While a threat to interracial marriage is hyperbole, the threat to things like gay marriage, homosexual conduct and contraception is not. Clarence Thomas laid it out. Gay marriage has been federally legal for less than ten years. Abortion stood for 50.

And the underlying hostility of the American right to LGBTQ issues is still very significant. Whether its truck loads of "patriots" (i.e. white christian supremacists) travelling to inflict violence on pride parades, the attempts to intimidate libraries to take down pride decorations and get rid of drag queen book readings, the bullshit about "child grooming" we've been hearing over the past months, the will is there among the MAGA shower and their more brazen representatives to try to force gay people off the public stage and back into the closet. I guess its this year's critical race theory hype.

Let's hope the rest of the Supreme Court conservatives are true to their word (although ask Susan Collins and Joe Machin, who were shocked - shocked I tell ye  ;)- when the two boys voted to overturn Roe!) and they'll reject the cases when they reach their level (which they will).
maybe joe or his handlers should nominate someone who can argue the pro abortion argument better than the latest justice who doesnít know what a woman is according to her approval testimony.

Joe Bidens America has Covid vaccines for 6 months olds  (who donít need it ) but no baby formula.
Sums up the worst administration of all time .
Worse than the last one?
how are things globally and internally? make up your own mind.

Biden has don quite a good job considering the hand he was dealt and the divided state of the country caused by the deliberate stoking of divisiveness by his predecessor.

Donít know if you live here but heís been a disaster (unfortunately)

The Republicans flipped an Hispanic District in TX that hasnít voted Red in a century

Border a shambles

Crime out of control

Gas/petrol all time high

Mayor Pete (who I had high hopes for) MIA

Failure to protect Supreme Court Justices

People are furious
you forgot the Afghanistan debacle of a withdrawal, leaving 80b of weapons and aircraft  and the country is now experiencing near famine conditions after leaving it in turmoil.
Inflation is at 40 year high and is closer to 20% than the 8 the liars tell us
Closing keystone pipeline on day one and refuse to drill for oil but go begging all over the world for it.
Using fbi as a personal gestapo to go after political opponents ,

Florida certainly dodged a bullet electing Desantis and not Gillum who was just indicted on mass fraud , taking bribes and lying to fbi . The lord works in mysterious ways and hopefully Desantis can be our next president.

Heís been mediocre enough, partly by being too passive.

Problems like inflation and petrol prices are things driven by much wider circumstance that he can do little about.

Ukraine heís doing fine, but then so that idiot Boris Johnson.

Just thank your lucky stars the orange wannabe dictator for life is marooned in Florida. I can only imagine the current mess if he was still in charge.
j70 still in denial none of this stuff happened under trump itís happening now under joe Biden the worst president ever .
