      Good morning, Dudette in Furst, lookin’ good! 💞🕊💞

      Thank you, NW, you are a rock..

      I am thinking it’s way past time to take the money out of politics, and take politics out of public service. This has become inhumane madness, as if We The People are utterly insignificant.

      Big hugs all around

    U.S. Capitol Police Captain Carneysha Mendoza:
    “recounts her experience defending the Capitol on Jan 6, and describes injuries she suffered during the attack.”
    –The chemical burns on her face are still healing. No Johnson, this horrific event was not “festive”.

      HB 112 says you can only play high school sports in the gender you were assigned at birth.
      This has passed the House in MT and is now in the Senate. It ignores the science and if passed would be unacceptably invasive for all athletes in school. Note that GOP bathroom bills failed spectacularly on all levels nationally. GOP has no policies so blaming the ills of society on transgender folks who are vulnerable easy targets, is how they rile up their Hate votes. These bills fail but they keep dragging them back, doing great harm – suicide is very high in the trans community.
      HB 112 must be stopped.

    • February 24, 2021 at 12:55 pm

      GOP legislatures use zero science to support a slew of anti-transgender bills…
      In MT once again the attempt to block gender affirming health care for transgender youth.
      There are six LGBTQ related bills in the MT legislature:
      HS 112 sports ban, HS 427 health care ban, SB 215 license to discriminate, SB 99, LC2997, SB 195.
      SB 215: Allows people to claim that their religion allows them to discriminate.
      –Romney gave this as a reason not to support the Equality Act.

    David Jolly to Hayes:
    “With Lauren Boebert it’s this defense against ‘the big government’. On January 6th we saw a willingness to tackle ‘that government’. That’s where the danger of the republican party
    moving from a party of less government
    to one willing to undermine and knee-cap it.
    …Tackle the government while leaders of the republican party are embracing this imagery (of guns in their videos) of the 2nd amendment.

    And Chris, there are 2 major deceits that Republicans practice:

    The first is they conflate fundamental rights with absolute rights.
    Lauren Boebert did that in her rant before the Natural Resources Committee.
    She suggested that owning guns and taking them into the Capitol is an absolute right.
    That’s not the case.
    All of our fundamental rights have certain restrictions.
    Including the 2nd Amendment, including the First with speech, relgion, and so forth.

    The second deceit by Republicans:
    is they KNOW that there’s no legislation that would pass the House and be signed by President Biden, that would take away gun ownership from law abiding rightful citizens, their ability to own guns. And so they reframe it around this issue of ‘freedom’ – that democrats want to take your ‘freedom’ – in this imagery that they’re presenting.”

    “Parker Solar Probe Offers Stunning View of Venus”
    ““WISPR effectively captured the thermal emission of the Venusian surface,” said Brian Wood,
    an astrophysicist and WISPR team member from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C. “It’s very similar to images acquired by the Akatsuki spacecraft at near-infrared wavelengths.”

    This surprising observation sent the WISPR team back to the lab to measure the instrument’s sensitivity to infrared light. If WISPR can indeed pick up near-infrared wavelengths of light, the unforeseen capability would provide new opportunities to study dust around the Sun and in the inner solar system.
    If it can’t pick up extra infrared wavelengths, then these images — showing signatures of features on Venus’ surface — may have revealed a previously unknown “window” through the Venusian atmosphere.

    “Either way,” Vourlidas said, “some exciting science opportunities await us.””

    President Biden:
    Supply Chain Executive Order.
    (Feb 24)

    “The order I’m about to sign does two things. First, the order is a 100 day review of four vital products, semiconductors, one, key minerals and materials like rare earth that are used to make everything from harder steel to airplanes, three, pharmaceuticals and their ingredients, four, advanced batteries like the ones using electric vehicles. There’s strong bipartisan support after fast reviews of these four areas, because they’re essential to protecting and strengthening American competitiveness.

    Second, this order initiates a longterm review of the industry basis of six sectors of our overall economy over the next year. These reviews will identify policy recommendations to fortify our supply chains at every step, and critically to start implementing those recommendations right away. We’re not going to wait for you to be completed before you start closing the existing gaps. And as we implement this work, my administration will draw on a full range of American talent, including labor and industry leaders, policy experts, scientists, farmers, engineers, to get their input.”

    • February 26, 2021 at 8:38 am

      This line of thought does not speak to the fact that the GOP does not care about how many Americans support anything…aka background checks…because their voters vote for them anyway…aka 2020 elections…the issue remains for them…if you are thrashing those blk folks over there>>…that even if i have substandard wages…I am OK..
