Did any of you see the Mr. Rogers movie with Tom Hanks? It wasn’t really even about Mr. Rogers. It was about a man who interviewed him for Esquire magazine in about 1998, and is based on that story. I made sure I had tissues in my purse because I suspected I’d need them, and sure enough I did. Reminded me of me when my life was a lot more simple, before it got really complex and lonely. The main character undergoes some spiritual and emotional growth as a result of spending time with Rogers. It’s a good story, wholesome and true.
Anyway, did you see it? Did you like it?... [Read More]
…no, the President is not (Forgive me!) “above the law”. Indeed, as far as the Demoncrats are concerned:
Trump is BELOW the law. Waaaay below it.
He, and he alone, of all American citizens, cannot proclaim his own innocence. (caveat:except that now, no man accused of sexual impropriety can now proclaim his innocence without being sued for slander, but I refer you to Dershowitz on that topic.) Trump and he alone cannot resort to the courts! If HE seeks to challenge a subpoena, as every single American has the absolute right to do, that’s obstruction of…no, wait, it can’t be obstruction of justice, since the rules of civil and criminal procedure provide for it…it’s uh..obstruction of congress! Yeah, that’s the ticket!
When has Trump attempted to put himself “above the law”? Oh yeah: he tried to create a title of nobility when he named his son “Barron”! Everybody knows that, now.
Except: that was a stupid attempt at a joke. It wasn’t even responsive to the question the humorless dyke Karlan was posed. Doesn’t matter! Trump is clearly trying to set himself up as an absolute monarch! Call your daughter “princess”? Call your dog Duke, or Queenie? Clearly you are complicit in Trump’s attempt to dismantle “our democracy”! (Um, whose democracy? Cuz I don’t recognize mine, since the Dems began these attainder proceedings.)
As has been pointed out, if Trump has actually so many things that are tyrannical, how come the Demoncrats always hafta make stuff up?
…go see Knives Out! It has a stellar cast, it’s funny and absorbing. Very complicated plot which I couldn’t summarize here even if I were willing to spoil it! I think you’ll enjoy it, O Ratty! If anybody has seen it—whaddya think?

In the [Barna] study of 1,067 US adults, a quarter of respondents said their view of evangelicals was “somewhat negative” or “very negative”, compared to just under a third (30%) who said their perception was “somewhat positive” or “very positive”.
Of the 268 respondents with a negative perception of evangelicals, two thirds (67%) said this attitude was because they felt evangelicals were “too pushy with their beliefs“. Sixty-one per cent said that evangelicals were “hypocritical”, while half said they were “homophobic” and a similar proportion (51%) said “their beliefs are outdated”. …One result that surprised Barna was the large proportion of Millennial Americans (52%) who have a neutral attitude towards evangelicals. ...
