Tues Blogcast: Apples; Anti-Semitism; Asinine enforcement of laws

Just One Thing: This MUST change

I don’t like adding to the outrage machine but some things really are outrageous. In Washington, DC anti-Semitic protesters vandalized property in Lafayette Park. When the police went to arrest a particular vandal who had climbed on to a statue, others protesters intervened, the vandal got away, there were no arrests and likely won’t be any. Meanwhile, in Spokane, Washington, some teenagers riding Lime Scooters left some black tire skid marks on a giant pride flag painted in the street. They have been charged with felony malicious mischief and it’s reported that Lime says they are taking action against the teens…whatever that means. To be sure, the teens said some nasty anti-gay stuff…which might also get him a hate crime charge. So you can burn an American flag but can’t mark a pride flag? This insanity has to stop.

Dave Williams: Liar, cheater, snake

CD5 voters, please do your district, your state, and your nation a favor and vote for Jeff Crank in the Republican primary. Dave Williams is a corrupt lying grifter who is using money paid to the state party by presidential candidates to fund the party's unethical endorsement of and support of his candidacy.

Williams has strapped himself to Donald Trump...metaphorically with Willams' face halfway down Trump's body...but despite Trump's endorsement of Williams, in fact the Trump campaign is AGAIN pissed off at Williams' grift.

Let's hope this succeeds: Republicans to call meeting on whether to oust Dave Williams as Colorado chair (msn.com)

There's a lot of talk about a possible ceasefire right now but I just don't see how it can work. It's implausible that Netanyahu can agree to something that does not include ending Hamas as a military and political force. It's impossible that Hamas would agree to anything that does. Hamas will not stop trying to kill Jews and destroy Israel until it's eliminated. Therefore, it must be eliminated.

Hamas 'welcomes' UN resolution on hostage deal
“The movement would like to emphasize its readiness to cooperate with the mediators to enter into indirect negotiations on the implementation of these principles that are in line with the demands of our people and our resistance,” a Hamas statement read
“We also affirm the continuation of our endeavor and struggle… to achieve their national rights, foremost of which is defeating the occupation and establishing an independent, fully sovereign Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, the right of return and self-determination”

This is the beauty of markets...they correct themselves. Doesn't mean there aren't losers but usually those are people who should have thought further ahead.

Trump is playing the dangerous abortion issue as best he can but the hardcore evangelical anti-abortion base are determined to push on no matter how many Democrats they cause to get elected...and seem to forget that those Democrats will then do everything they can to undo whatever "progress" pro-life forces have made in recent years.
