    The Dillon store and the YMCA are about a half-mile from my brother's home. My sister-in-law worked there as a director for a number recent years.

    Hi Chuckie,

    When did this happen? Am assuming it's recent. Is your brother still living there? Tornado alley is turning into Tornado super highway, seems like. Areas that don't usually get hit are experiencing them now. Kansas has always been tornado friendly. I got that from the Wizard of Oz!

    Hi OG,

    yeah, yesterday evening. It's a little early in the season for Kansas. My next door neighbor (apparently a climate change denier) says nature does what it does ... I agreed with him as always.

    Throughout my elementary school years watching that movie was a yearly ritual. It was a family event and kid's party. The movie lost out to 'Gone with the Wind' for the 1939 Oscar for best movie. It just occurred to me that it is somewhat ironic when considering Gone with the Wind won over Dorothy's having gone with the wind.

    The Constitutional issue which will cause a civil war will be the overturning of Roe v. Wade. That's an already established Constitutional right which has been shat all over. The nominees have always claimed that it's established law and that they wouldn't overturn it and it will be seen that some of them have lied.

    That is a betrayal to the country and the peoples' freedom because it's about privacy and personal rights and one of the most important personal decisions which can be made.

    I caught a snippet of the argument that Alito is putting forth. If it actually gains any traction in my mind it will be proof positive that the Supreme Court as it is has outlived its usefulness as an American Institution. It no longer is a Supreme Court, it is a 3rd branch of the rightist neo-liberal/neo-conservative new world order.

    I disagree with conservatives on many things, but this is one of the things which I may agree with them on. My reasoning is based on the culture of promoting conservative values when it comes to sexuality that are based in tradition.

    "It just occurred to me that it is somewhat ironic when considering Gone with the Wind won over Dorothy's having gone with the wind."

    That's funny! They should have swapped names, "Gone with the Wind" for Dorothy's story with"The Wizard of Frankly Scarlet I Don't Give a Damn.'

    Wizard of Oz was a yearly ritual for us too. I loved that movie. Flying monkeys creeped me out a bit!

    The Supreme Court is producing this new movie called, 'Fetal Attraction.'

    They're not pro-life, or there would be mandated universal health care. They are pro-birth and that is an entirely different thing.

    lol, yeah, the greatest band of jurists in the land and yet, morally corrupt not to mention deeply flawed when asked to assess right and wrong. The conservative jurists that be. The sub specie dysfunction runs very very deep as one would well expect.

    People are free to live by their values. They are not free to make others live by their values. If a person believes in personal responsibility then they must leave this most important one of all, the choice to have and raise a child, to the woman, the couple, the family. Any other approach is immoral and is no part of personal responsibility.

    The lies of the justices to Congress under oath undermines our system tremendously. It's a travesty.

    Alito points to 'another life'. This is a religious and moral issue which the Supreme Court understood to be part of privacy and personal responsibility. He and his minions have just taken a big fat shit on themselves and the court.

    As for all those years of hearing "Liberal fear mongering!!" Those folks can shove those words right down their own throats. They were either epically stupid or blatant liars or utterly deluded.

    When exceptions are not given for the life of the mother, for the circumstances of incest, of rape, of the fact that it could be a young girl who is pregnant, it shows that we've installed people who are Supremely Unqualified for the job.

    Well, the confirmation process was a shit show of lies, flip-flopping, and reneging on promises regarding election years. No surprise there. These dirtbags have lived up to my worst expectations.

    Sadly.
