Ugh. Jeff Flake. The thing that is so annoying about him is if he was still in the Senate, he would still be saying stuff like this, and then voting to acquit Trump in the impeachment as soon as he could. The GOP is the party of cowardice:
To my former Senate Republican colleagues, I don’t envy you. It might not be fair, but none of the successes, achievements and triumphs you’ve had in public office — whatever bills you’ve passed, hearings you’ve chaired, constituents you have had the privilege of helping — will matter more than your actions in the coming months.
President Trump is on trial. But in a very real sense, so are you. And so is the political party to which we belong. As we approach the time when you do your constitutional duty and weigh the evidence arrayed against the president, I urge you to remember who we are when we are at our best. And I ask you to remember yourself at your most idealistic.
I’m catching a cold. It’s been a stressful winter so far…. and it’s not even winter so far. But when life gives you lemons, you make yourself a hot whiskey. The recipe here is what I usually use. Only real difference is I stir the brown sugar with the whiskey to make it dissolve a little better (or at least I feel it does).
Guy really enjoys war losers. I wonder which candidate whose name rhymes with Frump will he be voting for in 2020.
Des Moines, Iowa – A homeowner living next to an elementary school in Iowa is facing backlash for painting Confederate battle flags and swastikas on pallets around his property. The symbols are clearly visible from the school.
“It’s a free country,” William Stark said. “I’ll put it out there if I want to.”
He added that people shouldn’t construe the painted pallets as racist.
But Morris Elementary in Des Moines disagreed and released a statement denouncing Stark’s display. School officials say the students, who are about 60% nonwhite, see the symbols when arriving and leaving the school and even from the playground.
“They don’t know their history, evidently,” Stark said. “That’s the only reason I can think of that they can think anything bad about it—they don’t know their history.”
