    I watched some of the debate between Fetterman and Oz in Pennsylvania. It reminded me again how important listening closely, watching for nuance, and the practice of critical thinking are to protecting yourself from anyone's attempt at deceit.

    Oz was against federal control of abortion because it could codify it. He was for LOCAL governmental control because he expected that would restrict abortion.

    I did not think Fetterman did well in what I saw (and that is not just focused on his health), but we are at a point where a debate losing dem is better than any repuke. Substance over flash or contrived polish is always the right choice.

    And Donald Trump, who continues to insist he won the 2020 Presidential election and continues to claim, with zero evidence, that it was "rigged" and "stolen" from him, is planning to challenge the Pennsylvania Senate election results if Fetterman wins. In Trumpworld, any election won by a Republican is obviously fair but if a Democrat wins an election, well, obviously the election was rigged and there was cheating and widespread voter fraud.

    Trump plans to challenge the 2022 elections – starting in Philadelphia
    The former President is fixated on challenging the results of Pennsylvania’s Senate race, which he views – as one source puts it – as a "dress rehearsal for Trump 2024."

    Unless you are a news junkie, it's easy to forget certain events over time. Additionally, the country is being drenched in disinformation sprayed everywhere by repukes. The media helps them by its "bothsiderism," that, for the unwary, works to camoflauge the repuke's vicious cruelty.

    Michael Moore has published a list by Rep. Bill Pascrell that shows what is really going on. Use this when you vote.

    The first 16 minutes, excluding opening commercials, of Keith Olbermann's podcast today, bluntly states why this country is dying.

    The countless purveyors of daily disinformation have an immense audience of cretins with their mouths open, like baby birds, waiting for their next portion of total BS. They love it not caring that it is toxic to everything it touches.

    This shows how military leadership appears to be infested with those who want to destroy this country.

    Donald Trump denounces as a RINO (Republican In Name Only) any Republican who refuses to worship him, protect him and defend him. Bruce Maiman, former Sacramento Bee columnist and former KFBK talk-show host (for 12 years), says the real RINOs are "the Trump acolytes and MAGA fanatics" who care much more about Trump than they care about their party.

    Opinion: Will the real Republicans please stand up?
    Once upon a time, in a place long before Donald Trump, there were Republicans. Now there are only followers of Trump and Trump wannabes (looking at you, Ron DeSantis).

    Being empathetic, compassionate, tolerant and open to progress and change is hard for humans. Democracy is hard and messy. It's easier to reject or attack what you don't like - and humans find it very easy to dislike anything or anybody - especially because...god.

    The damage conservatives are doing to the country is in the open. Examples are Florida and Texas where viciousness. hate and repression are rampant. That many vote for cretins like those governors or others like Greene, Boebert, Gosar. Cruz and hundreds of others tells you what tendencies are common in humans and how flawed American's intelligence and reasoning is.

    All this while the indifferent and apathetic "opposition " party sends mild letters of "disapproval"and does little else.

    The cancer is metastasizing. American hate joins European hate.

    The superficial and devious media never report the real facts. Few know they are being deceived.
