    I’ve been held up in the pillow fort without tv and stuff for a bit. Wow. It just isn’t improving.

    So Harvey, the “woman” who murdered three women, is actually a man who “identifies” as a woman. Ugh! “She” murdered the first two, was convicted, and served time as a man. Now at 83, she’s suddenly a woman. Sure.

      Oh. And there I was thinking that being a serial killer was spreading to women. :/

      And he’ll be sent to a woman’s prison due to Transwomen Are Women BS. Imagine being a woman and you get this creature as a cellmate. Trans rights superseding women’s rights.

      Handsome is as handsome does, but I located a picture and that person is truly ugly as sin. Why, after the second murder (“manslaughter”), she was ever released on parole is a mystery. She had only been out for a year when she stabbed her second victim and tried to dispose of the body. I hope she gets life without parole this time and is segregated from the women in prison. She even admitted that she “has a problem with women.”

        You are absolutely correct that this person should be segregated from women in prison…by putting him in the men’s prison where he belongs.

    The Jan 6th committee bringing in Ukrainians to protect democracy! LOL! But a very good idea.

    Can’t imagine Putin’s very happy about doing this:

    Russia has turned to China for military equipment and aid in the weeks since it began its invasion of Ukraine, U.S. officials familiar with the matter told The Washington Post.

    Good thread.

    We need to kick Texas out of the Union, I swear. It was ill-begotten and hasn’t behaved from about then forward.

      There are a whole lot of great Democrats in Texas, esp. in Houston, Austin, San Antonio, El Paso and even Dallas. They keep getting out-voted, but get closer every time to being able to run the Republicans out of office.

      Darn near all of the Republicans in office in Texas are dangerous whackadoodles. Some are corrupt; some are evil; some are idiots; some hit the trifecta.

      In early February, after President Emmanuel Macron, of France, flew to Moscow to try to reason with him, they held a joint press conference in which Putin said, as if addressing Ukraine directly, “Like it or not, take it, my beauty.” The line was immediately recognized as a reference to a luridly menacing song about necrophiliac rape by the punk band Red Mold. The Kremlin and its press organs airbrushed the taunt out of the official transcripts. But Putin had made himself clear: he viewed Ukraine as a corpse, and would have his way with it.
