Sunday Reads: Blank Page?


Good Morning…

I spent over three hours last night looking for things to write about and link to for today’s thread. Actually, it was more than three hours, because my dad was watching his shitty island treasure shows…and that last one was a two hour long season finale. Ugh…

We are all exhausted over this never-ending shitty show going on in real life, the tRump pres… I can’t even type out the word.

So, here is the post, it is an open thread. Go out and do something today, find some happiness. Because we all know that later tonight some horrible news will be flashing before our eyes. Enjoy the day while it is young.

    Sorry, I just couldn’t seem to get any gumption up to post links to stuff today. I know with the kkk rally in DC, things will be upsetting later on.

      It’s OK, JJ. Thanks for the open thread. I’ve been escaping into cozy mysteries with cats in them for the past few days. If you told me two years ago I’d be doing that, I would have laughed out loud. Now I’m reading cozy mysteries and watching Hallmark movies for stress relief.

      I’m so cynical that I’m sure the 2016 results will never be investigated. Many of the election tallies weren’t verifiable even at the time, or the data was wiped as per protocols shortly after the election.

        Disturbing, yes. There should be a historical record which can be verified. OTOH, the story was published in the Wright County Republican and says if Ellison was a Republican, the accusations would be all over the country. Shields is also a Bernie fan and considers delusional the idea that Russia helped Bernie. OTOH again, as they say, even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

        I’ve never particularly liked Ellison, mostly because of his Bernie allegiance. So far it does seem more incriminating than the ridiculous accusations against Franken, but I do want to see him thoroughly investigated before deciding.

          So the son says he has texts and a video. Ellison seems to have a denial and that’s it. Is there any actual evidence on his side? It’s pretty obvious what his motive would be to deny. Less obvious what the son’s motive could be. Either he just can’t stand what KE did to his mother and is telling the truth. The only motive I could see for lying would be that he was trying to blackmail Ellison. But then Monahan would presumably not defend him.

          Plus, what’s this about “new accusations”? Are there others saying they had similar problems?

          • bostonboomer says:

            The woman says it happened. I posted her tweet above. You can look at her timeline from that. IMHO, accusations of violence against women are far more serious than the ones against Al Franken.

            BB, Agree.

    • RonStill4Hills says:

      I have to resist the desire to see KE fall because he supported Bernie.

      The truth should prevail what’s the truth is.

      No rush to judgement but no quarter for abusers.
