John Lewis wasn’t cynical about change

Q. Ever been beaten by “the law’ in a demonstration like this?

A. Yes

Q. In recent years?

A. I’m a retired old geezer. Don’t make it to demos much, anymore. The digital world helps me get my thoughts out, nowadays.

Q. Is the United States as racist, now, as it was BITD?

A. Pretty much. Yes. Politicians try to be more slick about disguising it – while letting the average voter know how they really feel.

Q. Think it will ever change?

A. Maybe. Not in my lifetime. I hold no brief for legislating understanding, good sense or progressive thought. It would be satisfaction enough if our politics graduated to protecting everyone who believes in equal rights, equal opportunity, building a society structured to provide education sufficient to open all these doors. Someone once said to me, “I don’t care if they don’t love me, I just don’t want them to get away with spending time trying to kill me.”

“We’re at the mercy of what’s going on around the country”


Best in the southern tier still ain’t up to Governor Michelle’s standard!

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) said Sunday that her state is “at the mercy of what’s going on around the country.”

Lujan Grisham called the U.S.’s COVID-19 response the “worst abdication” of the “responsibility to protect Americans I’ve ever seen” during an interview on ABC’s “This Week.”

The governor claimed there is “no national strategy” and “no public health investment.”

There is no national strategy,” she said. “I still spend most of my days chasing testing supplies for our state. It is the worst abdication of a national response and responsibility to protect Americans I have ever seen in my government career.”

The Fake President’s only “national strategy” is to continue trying to unite every bigot, racist, fiscally-incompetent ignoranus behind his re-election campaign…before they all die from stupid-induced infection.
