I will leave it to Fleetwood Mac fans to finish the verse. Happy Monday all. Just a few Banana bread crumbs for this morning. Yes, it was good with my coffee.
It is great to see Lula beat Bolsonaro in Brazil. Of course, I did not expect to see Bolsonaro concede, but he has long admired Trump, so that is not a surprise in some respects, as he said he would contest the election before it happened. It is a narrow victory 50.9% to 49.1%, so it will likely get looked at
I saw where Boris Johnson might attend the Climate Change conference after King Charles was denied the chance to speak. I think the latter decision was a poor one, but it shows the long reach of fossil fuel funding of politicians in the UK. As for Boris, it is par for the course to show gamesmanship. Top of mind, sincerity is not a word I would use to define Johnson.
On another blog, among other things, a commenter was equating Trump’s contesting of the 2020 election to the 2000 election to rationalize Trump’s continual contesting. Not even close. As for 2000, Al Gore and George Bush were both right to get to the bottom of the Florida portion of the election which drove who won. It was very close and there were issues involved with the counts. But, after contending the election until the SCOTUS vote, Gore did something that Trump has still failed to do. He conceded. Trump has won only 1 out of 65 court cases and lost every recount, audit and review, but still has not conceded.
I am exhausted by the rationalizing going on with the assailant who broke into the Pelosi house and harmed the Speaker’s husband. Stop the BS and state the obvious. This is not right. We must be able to disagree without being violent toward one another. There are certain politicians who have dialed up the temperature with incendiary comments. We know who they are. The significant majority of them are in the GOP due to the gerrymandering which has occurred over the last several years These folks need to be called out for what they are doing. If they are not in a consistent manner, someone will get hurt, as there are too many extreme thinkers that buy into their aggressive stances.
As an independent and former Republican and Democrat, I can argue policy with Democrats, but I have to argue the truth with too many Republicans. It makes me sad the truth tellers in the GOP get vilified and even threatened with violence. The party must get back on better footing as there are too many that believe some of this BS and it is dangerous. As conservative pundit Michael Gerson says the “Republican party is in decay.”
