A Basket Of Deplorables


She was correct all along … “I could go on, for there are many more, such as Matt Gaetz, Kevin McCarthy, Lauren Boebert, Margie Greene, Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis … so many deplorables all in one party. So yes, Hillary Clinton hit the nail on the head when she called them a ‘basket of deplorables’ … “

Filosofa's Word

Remember back in September 2016 when Hillary Clinton, while running for president, was speaking at a fundraiser when she made her world-famous gaffe …

“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?  The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it. And unfortunately, there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.”

Not the smartest thing to say when you want these people to vote for you!  She wasn’t at all wrong, but her comment was likely the very thing that may have cost her the electoral college vote.  (Note to readers … she won the election by more than 2.8 million votes, but lost the electoral college vote, primarily due to gerrymandering.)  The reason her comment was a defining moment in her campaign is simple:  many people saw themselves in what she…

HOPE IS FADING

The numbers remai the same … 4 people are confirmed deceased and 159 are confirmed missing and unaccounted for. There’s a fire raging somewhere in the ruins, firefighters haven’t been ablt to locate the source, the local weather remains unfavorabe – continued rain. Local and federal resources are at full capacity.

Still no change. What do to? It doesn’t matter what you believe or who you pray to …

Chauvin


I’ll just leave this here!! … “There’s irony in Derek Chauvin having his mama ask for leniency after he refused it to George Floyd who was crying for his mama. Mamas, don’t raise your babies to be murderous cops.”

Former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin was sentenced to 22 and a half years yesterday for the murder of George Floyd. Chauvin pressed his knee into the neck of George Floyd for over nine minutes while he screamed, “I can’t breathe” more than 20 times and cried for his mama.

Prosecutors wanted Chauvin to be sentenced 30 years. Chauvin’s lawyers wanted him to only receive time-served and some light probation. Maybe Chauvin could have picked up trash on the interstate for a couple of weeks and then we could have called it even. Sorry, Derek, but no.

Chauvin must have cried for his mama too because she spoke at his sentencing. She asked for leniency and said news media and prosecutors had painted a distorted picture of her son. No, Mama Chauvin. Your son painted an accurate picture of himself. The crowd who witnessed your son murder Mr. Floyd asked your…

A Murderer Gets His Due …


Indeed – A Murderer Gets His Due … “Chauvin will probably become the darling (in more ways than one) of the imprisoned white supremacists … or he will find religion (a usual occurrence) … either way he will have 22.5 years to contemplate his actions.”

In Saner Thought

The policeman that killed Floyd has been convicted of his crimes and now he has been sentenced.

Derek Chauvin is going to prison for the murder of George Floyd. A judge in Minneapolis on Friday sentenced the former city police officer to 22 and a half years behind bars, reports the AP. Prosecutors had asked for 30 years, while Chauvin’s legal team said he deserved only probation. The 45-year-old Chauvin was previously convicted of murder and manslaughter charges after he pinned his knee to Floyd’s neck and kept it there for more than nine minutes during an arrest in May 2020. With good behavior, he could be paroled in 15 years. Prior to sentencing, Chauvin himself addressed the court, per the Star Tribune:

  • Examples of other statements before the sentencing, per CNN:

    • Chauvin’s mother: “It’s been difficult for me to hear and read what the media…

Driving I-95 S. Through another sh*tstorm…


Oh no!! This hurts … “I see her clear the divider with a foot to spare…and can’t bear to watch any longer to see if she cleared oncoming traffic heading North.”

Live & Learn

Monday. 5:55 a.m. I-95 S in morning drive to work. I was moving too fast to snap a shot so you’re stuck with that photo of I-95, but it’s North-bound, mid-afternoon, in bumper to bumper traffic several weeks earlier.

Back to Monday morning, and this commuter’s meditation. The hum of tire rotation on pavement. A/C chilling the cabin. Instrumental music from Iceland’s greatest export, Ólafur Arnalds.

12 minutes from the office.

Pre-rush hour traffic flowing smoothly.  75 mph, and ~4 car lengths behind the car in front.  I shift in seat, unable to find sweet spot to ease the lower back pain. It could be worse.  Tune ends, playlist skips to next Arnalds’ track. Rob Roberge: “Words can intrude when the body wants to take over. Lyrics make you think—music helps you just feel.

Then…tail lights from car in front flicker once. Then twice. Then…

~~June 25, 2021~~

SELF-LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICINE

It’s so much better when you laugh at yourself … you take that out of the hands of others. If that kind of humor hurts you, take away the sting by doing it yourself before others do.

That’s my way!!
