No votes were going to change with witness testimony. Another week or two of witnesses would have accomplished what exactly? Get this over with.
I am surprised that 7 republicans voted to convict anyway. Could be the most ‘bipartisan’ impeachment vote ever.

If so, she is a relatively innocent victim of the ‘evil left’ which is out to punish the right for exercising free speech rights. (I think I have the right’s spin down right.)
And we should not do anything that angers the GOP (which voted overwhelmingly against removing her committee assignments) because they might/will pay us back if/when they…[Read more]

“The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders . . . Just tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.”
And ‘patriotism’ plays a key role. Hyper-nationalism is a key card played by the right. “Our country is in ‘danger’ from evil ‘outsiders’. Do you not…[Read more]

The real question is “What comes next?” Do we collapse into hyper-nationalist memories of the ‘good ol days’ and denial of reality? (Our decline was caused by evil ‘others’. We are victims.)
Or do we become ‘just another country’ which seeks to cooperate with other ‘just countries’ to solve global problems? I fear we know…[Read more]

peacecorps replied to the topic More ‘super-Covid’ strains coming as 'surge in cases lets virus thrive' in the forum General Discussion 6 months ago
Most know that viruses mutate. My (non-medical field) understanding is that most mutations are bad for the virus (as with human DNA mutations) but, occasionally, there is a mutation that benefits the organism. When that happens, things change.
When the conservative, white nationalist ‘law and order’, ‘blue lives matter’ folks are beating up the cops to take over the capitol to punish the ‘radical left’, it does make one think about hypocrisy vs what we value.
Trump/GOP Derangement Syndrome is common. Hillary/Dem Derangement Syndrome is about as common. If you don’t hate someone or something with a passion bordering on a ‘derangement syndrome’, there must be something wrong with you. 😉
