mcgeo52 comments on May 25, 2021:
Trump was the unindicted co-conspirator with Michael Cohen. How difficult would it be to get an indictment on that? Trump's "perfect call" with the President of Ukraine was an absolute textbook case of bribery as defined in 18 USC § 201( b )( 2 )( A ). The "transcript" released by Trump's White House documented the crime. A grand jury coud issue an indictment on that one in less than a half day. [BTW, why the Dems in the House did not include Bribery as one of the Articles of Impeachment is beyond me, unless they really did not want Trump removed.] The tapes of his phone calls to Georgia officials requesting illegal interference in the election might have to be played a third time for the grand jury before they issued an indictment. Yes, I know you only get one shot, and it has to count, but I don't understand why his plane flying out of DC was not diverted to NY, or Atlanta and met by someone with handcuffs.

While Garland is as apolitical as possible, I have to believe that a group of top old school Republicans calling for prosecution of Trump for January 6 would not be something he would ignore. It would be interesting to see Trump try to run his shit show from inside federal prison.

I mentioned to Daniel that I believed that I had spotted a typo in the book. He asked what it was. I said that the book said he and his brother grew up in Galesville NY, and I believe it should have been Galeville, NY. I told him that I had attended Chestnut Hill Jr. High. He smiled and informed me that was less that five blocks from his family home. I have always had tremendous respect for the brothers and was very happy to find out we had that in common.
Washington state mandates teaching critical race theory K-12
mcgeo52 comments on May 11, 2021:
Textbooks are a major problem. Currently Texas has something of a strangle hold on textbook publishers. Consequently Biology texts contain Creationist drivel and US History texts cast the Civil War as the battle for states' rights, not insurrection in support of slavery. Maybe Washington, Oregon, California, and possibly Hawaii could join together to form a Pacific Textbook Consortium. This market would be so much larger than Texas that the publishers would have no choice but to pursue the approval of the Consortium.
Yes, it does. []

Crisis on the Right? []
mcgeo52 comments on Apr 28, 2021:
Since this is behind a paywall for some people, and it is definitely worth reading: By David Brooks Opinion Columnist Those of us who had hoped America would calm down when we no longer had Donald Trump spewing poison from the Oval Office have been sadly disabused. There are increasing signs that the Trumpian base is radicalizing. My Republican friends report vicious divisions in their churches and families. Republican politicians who don’t toe the Trump line are speaking of death threats and menacing verbal attacks. It’s as if the Trump base felt some security when their man was at the top, and that’s now gone. Maybe Trump was the restraining force. What’s happening can only be called a venomous panic attack. Since the election, large swaths of the Trumpian right have decided America is facing a crisis like never before and they are the small army of warriors fighting with Alamo-level desperation to ensure the survival of the country as they conceive it. The first important survey data to understand this moment is the one pollster Kristen Soltis Anderson discussed with my colleague Ezra Klein. When asked in late January if politics is more about “enacting good public policy” or “ensuring the survival of the country as we know it,” 51 percent of Trump Republicans said survival; only 19 percent said policy. The level of Republican pessimism is off the charts. A February Economist-YouGov poll asked Americans which statement is closest to their view: “It’s a big, beautiful world, mostly full of good people, and we must find a way to embrace each other and not allow ourselves to become isolated” or “Our lives are threatened by terrorists, criminals and illegal immigrants, and our priority should be to protect ourselves.” Over 75 percent of Biden voters chose “a big, beautiful world.” Two-thirds of Trump voters chose “our lives are threatened.” This level of catastrophism, nearly despair, has fed into an amped-up warrior mentality. “The decent know that they must become ruthless. They must become the stuff of nightmares,” Jack Kerwick writes in the Trumpian magazine American Greatness. “The good man must spare not a moment to train, in both body and mind, to become the monster that he may need to become in order to slay the monsters that prey upon the vulnerable.” With this view, the Jan. 6 insurrection was not a shocking descent into lawlessness but practice for the war ahead. A week after the siege, nearly a quarter of Republicans polled said violence can be acceptable to achieve political goals. William Saletan of Slate recently rounded up the evidence showing how many Republican politicians are now cheering the Jan. 6 crowd, voting against resolutions condemning them. Liberal ...

Six months in to Trump's term, it was reported that his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, had called Trump a moron. The reports were corrected to say that Tillerson had actually called Trump a f@@@ing moron. A few days later it came out that Rupert Murdoch had said that Trump is a f@@@ing idiot. This left us with the question, "Is Trump a moron or an idiot?" Unbelievably I found myself agreeing with Rupert Murdoch. My reasons for agreeing with Rupert? 1) An idiot is less intelligent than a moron, and 2) I have never heard of a moron savant. I believe Trump is an idiot savant and his "gift" is being able to read and con people.
