“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.”

There is no partisanship when elected officials disrespect the office for their personal gain, not for the country and the voters who put them in office. The GOP which we can call the party of TOTUS since he has such a large influence over what they do or don’t do. Looking at what has occurred since the election: TOTUS encouraged his followers to take over the capital to stop the certification of a legal election. The GOP initially was appalled but now that they fear the wrath of TOTUs and the possibility of mid term election outcomes. Their focus now has been to build on the “big lie” by a multitude of little lies like the Jan 6th insurrection that the GOP classified as a group of “tourists”. During that “tourist visit” 4 people died and many others injured. While this tourist visit was occurring the Congressional members were spirited to the safe areas of the capital yet these members of the TOTUS GOP now want to ignore the facts that we (the voters) saw with our own eyes and would like us to believe we did not see what we saw. Meanwhile self serving Bitch McConnell is busily obstructing any agenda the current administration has but offering nothing in it’s stead. It is the purview of the voters to correct this mess by voting intelligently and not by rote. Each person we elect to any office from municipal to Federal needs to be vetted by us and we can only do that by paying attention to what’s said and knowing what the facts are.

Biden’s American Jobs Plan

It is well documented that rural areas have no access to current information on government programs and how they affect their lives. As an example many do not know that Medicare is Government program and the ACA supplemented it. Due to the misinformation provided by their representatives in Congress many have missed out on medical care. It is possible that broadband access could have provided essential information on communication, health, weather and issues that directly affect their lives. We must be reminded that many members of Congress on both sides benefit from the Tax reform bill of 2017 directly or indirectly while taxpayers who make below $400 thousand pay the bills.

President Biden’s proposed $2 trillion infrastructure plan allocates:

  • $621 billion on roads, bridges, public transit, rail, ports, waterways, airports, and electric vehicles to improve air quality, reduce congestion, and limit greenhouse gas emissions
  • $400 billion to bolster caregiving for aging and disabled Americans
  • $300 billion toward boosting manufacturing, specifically semiconductor, medical, and clean manufacturing
  • $213 billion toward building, renovating, and retrofitting over two million homes and housing units
  • $180 billion to advance US leadership in critical technologies, upgrade research infrastructure, and establish the US as a leader in climate science, innovation, and research and development
  • $111 billion to rebuild water infrastructure and replace all of the nation’s lead pipes and service lines
  • $100 billion to build new public schools and upgrade existing buildings, and $12 billion to states to use towards infrastructure needs at community colleges
  • $100 billion in order to give every American access to affordable, reliable, and high-speed broadband
  • $100 billion to workforce development to help dislocated workers, assist underserved groups, and get students on career paths before they graduate high school
  • $18 billion to modernize the Veterans Affairs’ hospitals and $10 billion to modernize federal buildings

Biden’s proposal would be paid for by raising corporate tax to 28% and the global minimum tax to 21%, placing a 15% levy on book income for the largest corporations, and corporate inversions.

Apparently the GOP has unleashed the evil upon themselves when they backed TOTUS in all of his misdeeds, “the chickens as they say have come home to roost”. TOTUS will spill the beans on their misdeeds to elevate himself while the GOP supporters will miss the real substance of the situation. MA


Former president Donald Trump called Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell a “dumb son of a bitch” as he used a Saturday night speech to Republicans to blame him for not helping overturn the 2020 election and reiterated false assertions that he won the November contest.

Trump, speaking to a Republican National Committee gathering at his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla., excoriated a number of Republicans even as he publicly called for party unity — focusing on those who voted to convict him in impeachment proceedings. But he saved his sharpest vitriol for the Kentucky Republican.

“If that were Schumer instead of this dumb son of a bitch Mitch McConnell they would never allow it to happen. They would have fought it,” he said of election certifying on Jan. 6, the day his supporters led an insurrection on the Capitol to block Joe Biden’s formal victory.

Trump spent much of the speech, with many senators in the room, lashing into his former ally in personal terms, often to cheers from the party’s top donors. He falsely claimed that he won the Senate election for McConnell in Kentucky and attacked his wife, Elaine Chao, who served as Trump’s transportation secretary.

“I hired his wife. Did he ever say thank you?” Trump said. He then mocked Chao for resigning in response to the Jan. 6 events and Trump’s behavior that day.

“She suffered so greatly,” he said, his voice dripping with sarcasm. He later called McConnell a “stone cold loser.” A spokesman for McConnell could not immediately be reached.

The speech was light on his actual presidency, which some aides had wanted him to address, and delivered more of a familiar litany of grievances that seemed to animate the crowd. Many of his claims were false or misleading.

He did not directly address his 2024 plans — other than to express confidence about the Republican nominee winning — an attendee said, preferring instead to look back at the last election.

He reiterated many of his false claims soon after beginning his remarks and dove into particular states in detail, such as Georgia and Pennsylvania, continuing to claim he won them and attacking politicians such as Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R). He spoke for about an hour, according to an attendee, and bragged that he had tossed his prepared and “boring” speech, the attendee said. “Bullshit,” he said about the election, before polling the room of Republican donors on whether they believed he won.

He falsely said that most Democrats also believe he won but just won’t say so out loud, an attendee said.

Trump said the crowd at his rally preceding the Capitol attack was so large — falsely claiming that “some people say it was over a million people” — because supporters were upset about fraud and said he was “disappointed” in Vice President Mike Pence for certifying the election later that day. He expressed no regret about his actions on that day, nor about those of the Capitol rioters.

“I wish that Mike Pence had the courage to send it back to the legislatures … I like him so much. I was so disappointed,” Trump said.

The Republican Party paid more than $100,000 to the former president’s club to hold the event there, with the rest of the festivities at the nearby Four Seasons resort. McConnell was not there, and he has not spoken to Trump in months, telling advisers he never plans to speak to him again.

Trump attacked many of his favorite targets, such as Anthony S. Fauci, the country’s leading epidemiologist, even mocking Fauci for his first pitch last season at Nationals Park — a frequent Trump taunt. He falsely claimed that Fauci only received credit because he opposed Trump, an attendee said, and joked that Fauci wanted people to wear five masks after not initially supporting masks.

“Have you ever seen anybody that is so full of crap?” he said of Fauci.

The former president said, without saying who, that someone recently suggested to him that the vaccine should be called the “Trumpcine.” He bragged about his handling of the pandemic, dismissing the widespread criticism of his approach and not mentioning the more than 500,000 who have died of covid-19.

He praised Republicans who have ignored public health concerns about opening and reopening their states, such as South Dakota Gov. Kristi L. Noem and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Reprising an attack from the day he launched his campaign in 2015, he called immigrants “murderers, rapists and drug dealers.”

“They’re coming in from the Middle East. They’re not sending their best people. You have murderers, you have rapists, you have drug dealers,” Trump said.

He again said he was impeached “over a perfect phone call” and said he was jealous of Democrats for sticking together to vote against him. He said Republicans needed to be just as unified.

“We can’t have these guys that like publicity,” he said.

It is wondrous to see you being so pro-voter when you have not stood up against a miscreant President whose actions were un Constitutional and against the people of the United States. While DJT was busily screwing the people and the works of the government you were busily subverting the justice system in pursuit of your own agenda. Now you are speaking up again against the voters because a few large companies are speaking out against the voting restrictions which effectively cut off the path to voting for mostly poor and people of color because they came out in large numbers against your party. This is still America even though the GOP wants it to be “Jim Crow” America. If you were the patriot you purport to be then your voice should be against these unfair voting laws. It is shameful how you have spent your time feathering your own nest while many Americans of all colors and ethnicities pay the price for your parties greed. I believe you deserve this award for your continued self serving actions.

What concerns me and it should concern you also is the “hypocrisy” of our elected officials and how it affects our lives. This impeachment trial is one sided however it is something that should be done to protect the Democracy. Instead it has become a tit for tat game where our elected representatives bring up old news to support their ideas. Each side may have some merit in what they present but what does it do for us, The voters? I have found it hard to trust any of them as they do not for the most part truly represent any of us (voters) in the manner they proport to. The election of Trump supporters who still carry on unfounded and disproven ideas to the Congress is troubling but even more concerning is the fact that the GOP (Dupublican) members aren’t concerned with this purveyor of Trumpian tropes. It is unfortunate that many Americans have become what I call JSP’s (no offense: JERRY SPRINGER PEOPLE). The reason is that this show no matter how entertaining is staged for entertainment more than information. The same can be said for the daily “soaps” enjoyed by many. This devotion to entertainment and misleading politics show the sad state of our Politics and the nefariousness of the Hawkers of this misinformation for political gain. Our purpose as voters should and needs to be a demand for more honesty (if possible) in politics along with our own “VETTING” of people seeking election to Government service on our behalf. It is well to remember that as it should be that the two middle letters in poLItician is “LI” and too many spin the truth to gain access to government seats. That lead to long term poor performance for us and a well paid career for them. This concerns me and should concern you too!

No Matter what one wants to believe, Donald J. Trump has lost the election! The funding for the numerous failed lawsuits are the stock in trade for Donald. He has done this all of his adult (Business) life. His modus operandi is to use someone else’s money as he has none. This is still true as the lawsuits are paid for by his backers including his “base” many of them cannot afford to contribute but do it anyway possibly in lieu of food and personal comforts. The GOP members who have supported this madness up to and including signing onto a petition to overturn the election. The high court has rejected taking on this case and TOTUS is furious as in his uniformed mind he assumed he owned the court because of his appointments. The worst of this is not over, what will be left is a potentially un resolvable rift in the country between the right and left with the GOP sitting on the right with known extremists backing them (whether they want them or not). It should be noted that the left is no better in their own pursuits. The current Congress has shown their preference for taking care of their big money donors over their constituents whom they profess to work for. Hopefully the voters no matter their party preference will remember who their elected officials really work for. TOTUS will trash talk any and everyone after this is sorted out so why follow the head lemming?

 It is in our best interest to pay heed to the  title line of this post.

After the Civil War (War between The States) Jim Crow emerged subverting the freedoms of Black Americans. This continues to some degree now.

After Barack Obama, Donald J Trump (or is it Donald J Crow?) emerges and the underlying Racism is fueled by a self serving, failed business man with a cadre of inept minions, abetted by long serving members of Congress. It is a ” in your face truth” that we have a failing economy and a pandemic that is largely uncontrolled all caused by a disingenuous leader with no empathy for anyone other than his mirror image. The only and real power for change is in the hands of the voters (ALL VOTERS!). WE have the power to change the members of Congress for the better and we first need to ignore the politispeak that abounds and look at the facts of their actions. For instance ,in Illinois we have a GOP member who speaks with a forked tongue on a daily basis yet he shows up smiling much like the literary Cheshire cat and is just as fleeting. The TV ads show only what makes him look caring but the reality is that he voted for Cavanaugh, swore to be honest in the impeachment hearing and has essentially abrogated his duty as a representative of the people. This just one representative, imagine what the others are doing (in our names without our consent).


Vitamin B12 is a necessary trace element like many other we take in through food and drink. While many of us take supplemental vitamins through individual dosages or multi vitamin capsules, there is a issue to be aware of. That is that excess B!@ can cause numbness in extremities of some of us. The average required amount is 4-6 Micro grams ( this is about 1/20th of a gram). I have been taking a multi vitamin that contains a full gram in each capsule. I started getting this numbness in my right side fingers and a dull ache in my arm. This occurred once before when I drinking a bottle of vitamin water daily (which had 100% of B12). This is just a heads up if you experience the numbness and tingling while taking supplements or multi vitamins containing B12. I will get past this by ceasing the use of the multivitamin I am now taking. Please read the label of any supplements and multi vitamins to determine how much B12 is in them.

Roxburgh’s goal was to develop students with good character and moral courage, young men that would be “acceptable at a dance and invaluable in a shipwreck.”

It is clear to me that goal was not achieved with our current administration and the Neer do well Congress that supports him. There is little blame to be placed on his voting supporters as they as many of us have been spoofed by our elected officials and the certain parts of the news media. Looking at the current chain of events from 2016 until now, we are, in the vernacular of many “deep Dodo”. This administration has created havoc around the world through withdrawal from climate and trade pacts, assessing tariffs on countries for no other reason than the thinly veiled racism. Pounding our southern neighbors through returning and requiring immigrants to remain there until their number is called ( often years at this point), building a wall that has no effect aside from encroaching on American land owners while at the same time cutting their  farms in half. There is no Rhyme or reason to this administration other than the aggrandizement of this President and his cohorts. All of the executive orders and barely legal actions of the administration abetted by the GOP members of Congress have served only to incite the divide created by a lackluster Congress and gleefully joined by TOTUS. This scam of a Presidency has brought shame on all United States citizens but is acknowledged only by the citizens who have the wherewithal to recognize and embrace the multi nationality that made America in spite of the hundreds of years of inequality. If you are afraid of folks who are different or do not look like you then you are in the wrong country as this has been the case for the existence of the United States. If you allow the status quo to continue we will always have inept and criminal representation in government.
