gunter said...Some lady at Trump's rally I think was tried of hearing about Democracy all the time.
I'm no trumpite, but she is correct, we are NOT a democracy, no matter how many times we hear it from most politicians and mainstream media. We are a Republic. As the saying goes, a democracy is two wolves and one sheep voting on what's for dinner. Our founders didn't want that.
We are indeed a Republic. We democratically elect representatives to run our government, making it a Republic. We are not a pure democracy where the majority runs roughshot over each item on the agenda, which our founders were justly leery of. It requires a give and take among the representatives to run the country.
The democracy that nutty lady above and that MAGAs object to is the part where we elect our representatives. They do not accept democracy in that sense, they want only their people voting, and want a Dear Leader without regard or any deference to other views.
So were was we with the documents Trump absconded ...
The affidavit didn't help.
FPOTUS demanded a Special Master. Each side picked two to pick from. We'll see if there is an agreement on that.
DOJ told the Judge that there are more missing classified documents (the empty folders?) Prosecutors say it may present a national security risk that merits investigation.
Don't really kow if it means anything but there are videos of boxes, looking much the ones the FBI found at Mar-a-Lago, being loaded into a private plane and flown from Palm Beach to Trump's golf club at Bedminster just three days after NARA asked for missing material back in May.
It's obvious FPOTUS totally ignored any safeguards on how to handle classified material. The documents hinted at simply would not be declassified at the wave of his wand and kept mixed with items of clothing and snippets of newspapers and magazine covers featuring his likeness.
still ... why ?
Seems the 'others' frame has been bought into again -- all of the documents (more or less) are the property of the USAn Archives (since 1974) to prevent another Nixon-esque travesty. The magician's deception: watch the 'secrets' distracts from the fact that the 'secrets' were pick-pocketed from you (STS).
MAGA doesn't know that America elects its leaders through a democratic process? That's just nuts.
They still think he won. I don't understand.
I am weary of politics and idiots.
But I can always come here and find a little sanity in my day. Thanks!
But I can always come here and find a little sanity in my day.
Don't know how you can say that when I keep posting the batshit some people come up with!
Well, I don't read all of that part. I don't watch the news either.
But I have seen that Ukraine is giving Russia a thrashing now. Most of the world is on their side, I think.
When Pieper Lewis was 15 year she was sex trafficking. In a fit of anger she killed her rapist.
She should have know better.
Judge spares her further jail time.
Among other restrictions on her agency she is required to pay her rapist's family 150,000 dollars. There's no problem raising this amount for her on gofund.com , but still.
makes me sick ...
I escaped being raped when I was a tender 16, innocent virgin. He didn't intend to rape me, just throw me down on the ground and sit on me while he masturbated.
I was screaming as loud as I could, and I was terrified.
He said, "I'm not going to screw you."
Yeah, that made it all better.
I remember when that guy who was appointed to the supreme court after being interrogated about an assault that he denied. The men who defended him said that this had happened thirty years ago, so how could she possibly remember his face?
Yes, I remember his face. That was 1967...
