These, not the 1770s, are "the times that try men's souls"

Who said that? The owner of the hacienda/mina Guachicono back in the 1700s?

"Where's the beef? Was that Juan Tumba's band, again? These are the times that try men's souls."

It may be a strong statement, but it's true.  

Do Americans have their wheelbarrows at the ready for the buckets of cash they will need to purchase a loaf of bread when the results of his policies start to show?

... Meanwhile, Covid or no Covid, there is now a very large class of people across this land who either can’t or won’t earn a living, and we are seeing last year’s idle chat about “guaranteed basic income” (GBI) rapidly congeal into solid policy proposals to supply just that. It’s insane, you know, having nothing to do with producing things of value, but such is the new faith in monetary techno-magic — of which Bitcoin is the exemplar — that the reigning grand viziers and necromancers of economics are unanimous that it’s actually possible to get something for nothing now. I’m sure enough Republicans would go along with it — in terror of their broke and wrathful voters — to pass GBI.

The wild card, though, is how quickly we will destroy the value of the dollar as all this occurs, that is, provoke a king-hell inflation, so the people will get their GBI in worthless money. Nobody believes it can happen after ten years of quantitative easing and other shucks-and-jives in the accounting thickets that seemed to hardly move the inflation needle, except on Wall Street. But anyone who sets foot in a supermarket these days must feel a little shocked at food prices. A dollar for one measly onion… eight bucks for a little flat of ground beef…? How do people with no jobs or lost businesses feed their families? Do they get a warm tingly feeling knowing that Tesla shares are also up? Or are they out in the old toolshed at midnight, sharpening the pitchforks and soaking rags in kerosene?

Just making sure that when insurrection comes, the troops are reliably indoctrinated.

It came.  Those that weren't overrun or killed took selfies with the insurrectionists.

Coming soon to a police state near you: 

I agree with Nancy Pelosi


... So, four of the five who died were pro-Trump protesters. And the fifth? Well, that was Brian Sicknick, the Capitol Hill police officer (also a Trump supporter) who, the New York Times and every anti-Trump pundit in Alpha Centauri told us, was bludgeoned to death with a fire extinguisher by the mob.

That contention was a centerpiece of the Democrats’ latest effort to impeach Donald Trump. But it didn’t happen. Sicknick left the Capitol and later texted his family that he was fine. There have been reports that he, like Benjamin Philips, died of a stroke. As I write, no medical report of the cause of death has been released, though a medical examiner has said that there was no evidence of blunt-force trauma.

Brian Sicknick was the poster boy for the Democrats’ effort to transform Trump supporters into ravening extremists bent on destroying democracy. That’s why they had him lying in state at the Capitol and made his supposed murder such an important part of their impeachment effort. Once again, the New York Times, where the story originated, has been shown to be an organ not of the news but of partisan misinformation. They heard something that fit their narrative, so they ran with it without checking.

Which is one reason I support Nancy Pelosi’s effort to get to the bottom of what happened on January 6. To do that, she would surely agree, what is needed is an unimpeded and truly bipartisan inquiry, overseen by an equal number of Republicans, picked by House minority leader Kevin McCarthy and herself. Or maybe it should be undertaken by an independent but genuinely non-partisan investigator. In any case, I look forward to the results of the inquiry.

He died of a stroke caused by a blood clot in his brain.

But I agree, there needs to be an inquest into how the clot got there.

Anti-racism is acknowledging your racist thoughts exist, and facing them, in order to overcome them.

How is that dangerous?

MAYBE he forgot his statins , did he have high BP what medication was he on , was he overweight and not exercising

How do clots get to the brain ,about 140,000 Americans die each year from strokes why should he have been different?
