Howdy Widdershins!

Well, 2022 is off to a banger of a start. We’ve lost multiple beloved celebrities, Manchinema are tanking Biden’s agenda, an underwater volcano has gone off in Tonga, and Trump holds a rally where he explicitly says white people are being denied the Covid vaccine. Oh, and then there’s the Insurrection. More and more details are coming into view: a full blown conspiracy at the highest level of government that included sending fraudulent electoral certificates, which the John Eastman memo said could be used to declare Trump winner. Jeffrey Clark, who Trump wanted to install as AG, also sent memos to states that sent the fake electoral certificates that their elections may have been fraudulent – but he meant it like “hey, your election was fake, so we’ll just these alternate electors.” Clark has refused to testify before the 1/6 House Committee and has been referred to DOJ for obstruction. People like Chief of Staff Meadows were behind this plot. An actual conspiracy to stage a coup. Forget the violence at the Capitol – Trump had additional plans to stay in the White House. And Republicans are all “Oh well, let’s just move on!” The 1/6 Committee will be holding live hearings this year and Jaime Raskin says it’s going to be blow the roof off the House. Well, we know all the Republicans will be holding that roof down, but we’ll see how it plays out.

Happy Weekend Widdershins,

Crispy weather is in the air and leaves have turned various autumnal colors. What will winter bring us? Is there a special winter skunk to forecast the weather??

Meanwhile in DC another skunk, named Kyrsten Sinema, left DC negotiations on the infrastructure bill and went to AZ to attend a fundraiser. She then released a statement yelling at the House for delaying the vote on it. That her own behavior is a big reason it is delayed is lost on her. She is an odd sort of person…a troll more than a legislator. Manchin, being from a deep red state, makes sense. He’s wrong, but he makes sense. Sinema is completely unpredictable, which is what makes her dangerous. She doesn’t have to act this way; her fellow AZ Democrat Mark Kelly doesn’t act like this. But she is just….ugh.

Hello Widdershins!

Happy Sunday! How is everyone doing? It’s so nice to live with a boring President. The biggest scandals have so far been the rescue dog looked at someone the wrong way (and media wanted him euthanized), VP Kamala Harris and her husband kissed on the tarmac while still wearing masks (has no one heard of safe sex??) and Biden sometimes still wears a mask outside. The media can’t stop being shocked and trying to “gotcha” why Biden wears a mask even though he is fully vaccinated. And this is not just coming from the crazies at Fox and Newsmax. This is coming from NPR reporter and CBS and NBC. Our media will always spread right-wing talking points to make life difficult for Democrats. It’s maddening.

In any case, let’s not let the bastards get us down. Share some joyful music with the group!

Happy Weekend Widdershins!

We have made it to another weekend. It’s a Christmas Miracle! I say Christmas in August because the Duane Reade near me (I should say one of the Duane Reade’s near me because there are several) already has Christmas ornaments for sale. And why not! Frankly I kind of wish we could just skip Aug-Dec and get right to the New Year. Who’s with me?

Our musical theme and challenge this weekend is: TIME! Good times, bad times, fast times, slow times, everything in between.

 

Stay 6 feet apart

Good weekend Widdershins

So, here we are with a leaderless, rudderless, federal government that consists of a man who is the purported President*, who just reels off untruths and lies at a daily “briefing”, and then attacks a reporter for giving him a softball question.  I believe I agree with Rachel.  Don’t broadcast this bullshit live.  Tape those and show later if you must show them.

Currently we have seventy million Americans who have been told to stay home.  Illinois was the latest to do so but it surely won’t be the last one.  I expect Louisiana’s governor to do the same soon since we have one of the highest rates of infection on a per capita basis.
