individualism prevents people from seeing the need for structural changes to our economic, justice, health, education, and energy systems, among others.

No it doesn’t.

Individuals see all too clearly Leftists have presented no sound case for their proposed changes and if anything have demonstrated why such changes should be avoided.

During the Cold Storm of 1857, “Men were floundering through the snow up to their waists,” reported the Cambridge Chronicle. Women only peeped out at the window and railcars stood still.

The Saturday Night Joke
Sitting in a bar the Scotsman says, "As good as this bar is, I still prefer the pubs back home. In Glasgow, there's a wee place called McTavish's. The landlord goes out of his way for the locals. When you buy four drinks, he'll buy the fifth drink."

"Well, Angus," said the Englishman, "At my local in London , the Red Lion, the barman will buy you your third drink after you buy the first two."

"Ahhh, dat's nothin'," said the Irishman, "back home in my favorite pub, the moment you set foot in the place, they'll buy you a drink, then another, all the drinks you like, actually. Then, when you've had enough drinks, they'll take you upstairs and see that you gets laid, all on the house!"

The Englishman and Scotsman were suspicious of the claims. The Irishman swore every word was true.

Then the Englishman asked, "Did this actually happen to you?"

"Not meself, personally, no," admitted the Irishman, "but it did happen to me sister quite a few times."

What is sad is that Africa and Asia have become the moral centers of the Catholic Church. Social Justice is rampant in South America after 200 years of the Church siding with the oligarchies. North America and Europe are hopelessly prog.

But in Africa there is an adherence to most of the Church's basic tenets that has helped lift many out of abject poverty. It is the center of education as well.

Funny how a Peronist has helped clarify thinking over the past decade. Just another bozo on the woke bus.

Tom Bowler,

Read your great esay. My hope is that enough Biden voters realize that not oly is he senile, but the promises he made were empty and are being broken willy-nilly, probably at the behest of China and the far left.

Since most of the media is not particularly appealing, I think our best hope is in accusing them of that which they are guilty of: lying, manipulation, and hiding stories entirely. As the disasters and disappointment pule up, point the figure at TV news, Washington Post, New York Times.

I vividly remember when I decided to vote for Reagan: Carter's terrible handling of Iran and his cold indifference to the Shah's bout with cancer, and a failure of a promised tax cut with gas llines due to the oil shortage.

In both instances, I had been led to believe by NBC News that Carter was SUPPORTING Iran and would give everyone a tax rebate. Lies. I switched to supporting Reagan in 1980 and never voted democrat again.

How Trump offered Kim a ride on Air Force One

Since a lot of the info comes from interviews with people like John Bolton, I probably won't go looing for this series.

However, I thought this story was funny, not only for the Trumpian style but for how the career State and Defense officials probably reacted.

Trump was the most uncovential POTUIS even considering Truman. So, his offer to Kim was out of his playbook. We miss him more than ever with this doofus in office.

Tom Bowler

Miss M, Thanks for your complimentary words. I agree, we have to continue accusing the media of lying and hiding stories. Beyond that I don't know how to reach the pro-Biden types. I think their self worth is so tied up in their political opinions that changing their minds is unthinkable.

My old boss once said, "Contradictions don't exist." By that he meant that we are capable of looking right at contradictory evidence without being able to see it. Personal experience, he was right.

We ate at Fisherman's Village last time down at the restaurant at the end Captain's Table??? or something like that. We will be going there probably one night since the daughter is going to be with us. She's flying in to ATL on Wed and flying out of Tampa on Sunday night. She plans on moving down in August when her lease is up in Charlotte.

MissMarple2

Tom Bowler,

I have been thinking about this all day. What you have to understand is that these people, trained to be victims, can never blame themselves for misjudging Biden, making a mistake, not studying properly, etc. There must ALWAYS be someone else to blame.

Look at Cuomo. He has blamed Trump, the state AG, the nursing homes, the nursing home workers, his communications office, even the patients and their families! He has been doing this even though there are documents and we all SAW the Navy hospital ship and the Army field hospital that President Trump sent, standing empty!

This is the same mind set. That is why the media keeps acting like anything they disclose about Cuomo is NEW. They do NOT want to accept responsibility for the cover-up, so they pretend it is all new information.

What I am doing with my daughter is asking her questions, like I didn't know. Like the article the other day about how many kangaroos were in Australia, or how long it takes for one of those wind turbines to pay for itself, or how much money we sent to Pakistan for gender studies, etc. She is particularly susceptible on money issues. HA!

"U.S. attorney John Lausch is prosecuting close confidants of Democrat boss Mike Madigan, an ally of former president Barack Obama who resigned from the state legislature Thursday after a decades-long reign in Springfield. Lausch's office will also prosecute Chicago alderman Edward Burke (D.), an influential figure accused of strong-arming businesses into retaining his law firm.

Lausch's abrupt removal has drawn bipartisan criticism from Illinois lawmakers who say he should be allowed to finish his work or depart on a longer timeline to ensure an orderly transition. The president asked all Trump-appointed U.S. attorneys to resign by the end of February but allowed two to remain in place to conclude politically sensitive work."

The attacks on Cuomo by progs serves to even further discredit the media.
All of what is being used to attack him now was known and out in the open when he was receiving plaudits, laurels, encomia, hagiographies and Emmy awards.
But the media, being a wholly owned subsidiary of Progdom Inc kept its collective and collectivist mouth shut for the good of the firm, especially for its chief financial officer Joe Xiden whose campaign would have had a hard time with his party's biggest Covid star being revealed as a flim flam psychopath.
That same company town-party loyalty is why Hunter remains off limits because covering his corruption would undermine CFO Xiden still, while Cuomo is now expendable.
They are not a free press. They are the prostitutes in Prog Inc's world of racketeering.
