I was very impressed with the humility and humanity of this guy’s statement after the Chauvin verdict. If only most got it as he did.
America faces many problems. Why would Kristen Welker & WH reporters ask Jen Psaki silly Fox News-like questions about Biden and Maxine Waters’s statement on Chauvin’s trial?
A Few Takes
Why not call it what it really is. It is not the America First Caucus. It is the White Supremacist caucus. That is who a large sect of the Republican Party is with their acquiescence to those who continue to push an evil ideology.
Do not believe the Republicans lie that Colorado voter laws are similar to theirs and sometimes less lenient. We must set the record straight.

For eight years now, I’ve investigated how Georgia’s Secretaries of State have amp’d up the old Jim Crow tactics against Asian-Americans. Call it, the New Kim Crow.
Neither Congresswoman Cortez nor Senator Markey make claim to being Franciscan, but their vision as laid out in the Green New Deal clearly embraces the values and the vision of our Franciscan life and spirituality.
Our local Kingwood Texas friend, Mike Collier (@CollierForTexas), is ready to kick the failed Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick out of office. Finally, someone who instead of giving away the store to corporate friends will do the bidding for Texas citizens.
A friend/neighbor was walking through the trails in our Kingwood, Texas neighborhood and came across an epithet that clarifies Trumpism & Racism are alive & well in our town.
PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE POST: We continue to be led by politicians who are killing many of our loved ones. Local authorities must defy the murderous edicts from the state and the federal government.
