    Did Texas or the Supreme Court consider precedence? (the Originalists don't give a shit about precedence)

    Charles Pierce observed,

    My astonished rage cleared for a second and I realized that, according to this decision, states can pass all kinds of unconstitutional laws as long as they leave the enforcement to bounty hunters.
    Jesus, we're back at the Kansas-Nebraska Act again.
    All those years of hearing the phrase "Liberal Fear Mongering!" and now it's real. It's the same parallel with "Trump derangement syndrome". The shit keeps turning out to be real.

    I left bounty hunters off my list of warlords, NDEs, and toll roads to 'get through town'.

    I remember when I first came on board here, "Nothing", use to give those 'not insults' surreptitious jabs about me thinking my 'own' was special, alluding to my daughter. Well, yeah, a father's pride for sure. My daughter started a medical training track this year after deciding her dream to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design despite having received a scholarship was not going to materialize.

    Yesterday, she was chosen to receive an all expense paid trip to a 3-day CDC conference in Chicago Illinois regarding the Covid-19 pandemic and she's just getting started. Yeah, my baby is special.

    Don't let the bastards get you down. They never tire of trying.

    I'm doing a textile arts project and one of the tasks is to make yourself a badge or medal.

    In a deeply prophetic conversation, Terence McKenna and Anne Armstrong discuss how it is necessary for humans to encounter difficulties in order to evolve spiritually and collectively. "This seems to me like a recurring theme, it's the idea that things are going to get worse before they get better because there needs to be some kind of shock of awakening."

    It is a beautiful, and sad, irony that so many of the folks calling others 'sheep' end up taking meds intended for herd animals including sheep. Exquisite irony.

    Another irony is the folks saying they'll be the goats, not the sheep at judgement.

    The sheep were the ones who followed God's commandment to help the least amongst us. The goats were the ones who were all about themselves. The goats were not the ones who gained entree into heaven.

    The saddest, most tragic irony of all is this very community's reaction to the pandemic. An event like this is exactly what this self-motivated, ingenious, inventive, survival-oriented community was supposed to be prepared for.

    Back in the day, folks would be getting hold of vaccines if they could just to share them so their communities don't suffer the very suspicious disease.

    Instead, it has become oppositional/defiant and won't take anything recommended by the mainstream. So instead it's off-label uses and animal meds. I don't think this community would have been OK back in the day with letting others suffer without their meds for the sake of its own survival, i.e. malaria prevention.

    I never thought the community was so selfish. I thought it was about being informed and prepared.

    This current response is not 'being prepared'.

    This is being alt-sheeple.

    I have posted, on the Lounge Thread, songs from Patrick O'Hearn's recording Mix Up. My husband and I just loved it.

    Many of the songs have voices saying odd phrases. One is a ditsy, high-pitched voice saying, "The last book I read was People Magazine". It was kinda funny.

    And just the other day I saw a clip of Jimmy Kimmel's show where they ask people on the street questions. This one was about the last book they read.

    One woman literally answered 'People Magazine'



    You can hear it at 3:55

    yeah I like it ...

    The last book I read was "Bloody Genius" by John Sandford. I think you might like his style. Entertaining top 10 books ... I'm reading "Chosen Prey" right now and on Amazon bought "Masked Prey" but for some reason it came up "Undeliverable" and was sent back. Damn USPS, they are useless.

    I keep getting this urge to say, "I don't care"
