Deep in the heart


James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner were murdered fifty-seven years ago this month while registering voters in Mississippi.  In 1980 Ronald Reagan began his presidential campaign in Philadelphia, Mississippi, the last place the three men were seen alive.  Last month these (mostly) white people found it necessary to demonstrate for the right to vote in Austin, Texas.  Is this progress?

Texas does not like to be second to anyone.  They're still mad at Alaska for becoming the largest state.  Dismantling democracy, crushing public education, promoting the spread of covid, whatever the other hellholes can do, Texas will dial it up to eleven.  Now they want to take the mass-murder title away from Nevada, where Stephen Paddock killed sixty people and wounded another 411 during a 2017 concert, firing from his hotel window.  As of May 24 it's illegal for a Texas hotel to keep a guest from bringing guns and ammo into his room because private corporations must kneel to SECOND AMENDMENT.  So it's a matter of time.

In other Texas news, a flight from Dallas-Fort Worth to Charlotte was disrupted by a woman who became agitated and tried to open the door, then "assaulted and bit a flight attendant."  These incidents are now so routine that the cabin crew bring their own supplies; the woman, described as "in her thirties and [with] green hair," was subdued and pinned to her seat with zip ties and duct tape for the balance of the flight.  Remember when the worst thing you had to witness was Gerard Depardieu taking a dump on a drinks trolley?  Good times.

Could the green-haired passenger be a congregant of Landon Schott's Mercy Culture outfit in Fort Worth?  It would be irresponsible to speculate.  These people are all set to turn our democratic experiment into Gawd's Kingdom under His blotchy orange-faced Son.  This sort of thing crops up regularly, but twenty-first century Texas seems unusually fertile soil.  

I've been picking on Texas, haven't I?  Well, here's a January 6 insurrectionist from Pennsylvania named Pauline Bauer who told a judge last month that she doesn't need a lawyer because she is "here by special divine appearance, a living soul."  They don't hear that too often in federal district court, even from the godly woman who was recorded yelling, "Bring Nancy Pelosi out here now.  We want to hang that fucking bitch."  Judge Trevor McFadden ordered her ROR because it's not as if she's a danger to herself or others.  Besides, she has a pizzeria to run.

Who described the failed Putsch like this?  "The love in the air, I've never seen anything like it...too much spirit and faith and love, there was such love at that rally, you had over a million people."  Not the Reverend Schott or Pauline Bauer or whoever sang the Mary Tyler Moore Show song long ago.  He went on, "Who is the person that shot an innocent, wonderful, incredible woman, a military woman, right in the she tried to climb out of a broken window?"  Yes, you've guessed it, the Big Liar.  A million people?  In the head?  Out of a window? Innocent? Love in the air?  The only thing he got right was her name, Ashli Babbitt, before implying that "they" know and probably it was Chuck Schumer.  TBL need not worry about his First Amendment right to spew bullshit.  Mr. Madison has him covered.  

Acting on a tip from a maid, Denver police searched the Maven Hotel, arrested four people and seized more than a dozen guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition on the eve of the All-Star Game.  We're assured that there was no danger of "terrorism" but one of the men wrote on Facebook that he was involved in a divorce and wanted to go out "in a big way," which sounds pretty terror-ish to me.  Bet you a beer the Colorado legislature tries to pass a Texas-style guns-before-people law.

The prospect of having to fork over $1.6 billion focuses the mind, even the slithery mind of a Murdoch.  Fox News carried the Big Liar's address to CPAC but when he began raving about the "rigged" election they also ran a disclaimer:   "The voting system companies have denied the various allegations made by President [sic] Trump and his counsel regarding the 2020 election."  Too little, too late, but still funny.

You've seen this, right?  And the more detailed symptoms at the website?  Here's what I don't understand.   CPAC met in Dallas -- why no mention of the unpleasantness of 1963?  Joe Biden was in college then but there's no reason he couldn't have been on the grassy knoll, too.  Come on, people, make an effort.  Call yourselves conspiricists, I don't know...

Tomorrow we'll look in on Sidney Powell before the sublimely pissed off Judge Parker.  Last I heard Lin Wood was blaming everything on her and her kraken.
