Hypocrisy rankles, does it not?  This is especially applicable in the case of the recent voter suppression law in Georgia.  Supporters claim it is “common sense” and that it expands access to voting.  Yet the foundation of the law consists of discredited theories of a compromised voting system in the state last year.  Actually, many Republicans are just mad that Georgia is a purple state going blue, due to demographic changes.

Sidney Powell, Organic Fertilizer, and Voter Suppression   Leave a comment

I do not pretend to know the difference between what organic fertilizer Donald Trump accepts and what organic fertilizer he merely spouts.  It is, however, all organic fertilizer, to use a G-rated term.  In the time of “alternative facts,” many members of the Republican Party (now the Donald Trump Death Cult of Personality) both accept and spew his organic fertilizer.  Some of the richest fertilizer concerns alleged and repeatedly debunked claims of election fraud in 2020.

Attorney Sidney Powell is a skilled practitioner of spewing such organic fertilizer.  One may remember her for infamously saying that Hugo Chavez, the President of Venezuela who died in 2013, was plotting in 2020 to compromise the U.S. presidential election.  Yes, Sidney Powell really needs to learn to the meaning of “fact check.”  Dominion Voting Systems knows all about her repeated and false claims about their voting machines.  They are, in fact suing her for defamation and at least $1.3 billion.  Powell’s defense, via her attorney, is that she was spewing organic fertilizer, and that any reasonable person would have known this.

The State of Georgia (my state) has made news (in a bad way) again.  (We keep doing this.)  The General Assembly has passed and Governor Brian Kemp has signed into law an election reform bill that suppresses voting and sits on the foundation of discredited claims of a previously compromised voting system.  According to the standards of Sidney Powell’s attorney, Governor Kemp and those who voted for this law are unreasonable people.

Objective reality is what it is.  Likewise, organic fertilizer is organic fertilizer.  I favor policy-making based on objective reality, not organic fertilizer.

If the Bed Sheets Fit, Wear Them.   Leave a comment

SUPPRESSING THE VOTES OF MEMBERS OF MINORITIES

Efforts at voter suppression are underway in 45 of the 50 states in the United States.  Republican legislators are erecting a fortress against changing demographics.

Today, in my state, Georgia, Governor Brian Kemp signed into law a bill that suppresses the votes of members of minorities who vote Democratic.  Kemp, experienced at voter suppression, has denied engaging in voter suppression.  He claims to have improved the security of elections, as well as public confidence in their results.

I have given the Voter-Suppressor-in-Chief of Georgia a piece of my mind.  Tonight, I sent his office an email.  I told Kemp to wear the bed sheets, if they fit.  I also said that going ahead and burning crosses would be consistent with what he has done so far.  Then I signed.  The Grand Dragon, Wizard, whatever, knows where I live and how to contact me.  So be it.

I stand by my words.  I say and write what I mean, and I mean what I say and write.

Allegedly Pro-Life Republican Politicians Who Are Pro-Death During a Pandemic   Leave a comment

ESPECIALLY THE GOVERNOR OF GEORGIA, WHO IN WORDS OF THE MAYOR OF SAVANNAH, GEORGIA, TODAY, DOES NOT “GIVE A DAMN ABOUT US”

Some politicians who claim the label “pro-life” with regard to abortion are pro-death with regard to COVID-19.

I will get a side point out of the way.  I am cautiously pro-choice.  On principle, I oppose abortion except in extreme cases.  Medical emergencies do exist.  Sometimes somebody will die, regardless of the decision one makes.  Life does not always spare people those dilemmas.  I hold that the people who should make those decisions are usually the ones closest to the individuals affected.  In certain circumstances, however, they may not be.  This can be a complicated issue.

Now, back to the main point….

Recently, the Unified Government of Athens-Clarke County, Georgia, mandated that we who live here wear masks in public places.  This was a socially responsible order consistent with science.  This morning, while watching the news briefly (for the few minutes I could bear to do so), I heard that the Dishonorable, Excrable (to use an old word) Brian Kemp, the Governor of Georgia, overrode that ordinance and its counterparts elsewhere in Georgia.  He decreed that no local government may issue a COVID-19-related order stricter than state policy.

Kemp, elected in 2018, ran as a pro-life, pro-gun liability.  He captured what political analysts call the Bubba Vote.  I voted for Stacey Abrams, his main opponent, who came close to winning.

If Kemp were as pro-life as he claims to be, he would issue stricter statewide policies and support the mandating of wearing masks in public.  He is only one politician I condemn for hypocrisy related to being pro-life regarding abortion but not regarding COVID-19.
