House and Senate

That is what counts — legislators who understand that justice is not automatic but lies in their hands.
Moses pretending the law was inscribed by God did us all a gigantic disservice –setting the stage for the routine denial that people are responible for how their own kind are treated and taught to behave.


Republicans are a nasty party. They set the dude up to watch him crash. Gives a whole new meaning to Schadenfreude. The ultimate example of planned destruction? It is, after all, the Conservative M O. Planned destruction is so much better than the random kind because, being planned, it is more certain of success. Planning someone else’s failure is a bit dicier.

For some reason I am reminded of the 80’s Toyota commercial ( slightly amended)

“ You asked for it; you got it! Toilet odor.”
