Jeff Bezos, the richest man in the world, just got $2 billion in tax breaks to move his company to New York and Washington, DC. The L.A. Times says Amazon played American cities for suckers.

When Civility Can Start Again

“That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

“You can be civil but you can’t overcome what they do unless you win elections.” – Hillary Clinton

 

 

Mob Psychology

Trump denounces Democrats as an “angry mob.”

But Democrats insist they’re not a mob.

And Hillary says they’ll stop being a mob when they get back in power.

Democratic Resistance

AP reported that the Brett Kavanaugh Senate hearings touched off more Democratic resistance.

Democrats don’t have the votes to block Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. But that didn’t stop them from putting up a rowdy, leave-nothing-on-the-table fight during four days of Senate confirmation hearings that marked a new stage in the party’s resistance to President Donald Trump.

Not Innocent Until Proven Guilty

Then the Christine Blasey Ford sexual assault allegations surfaced. And Dems insisted she had to be believed. They also denied that she had a burden of proof because “it’s a hearing not a trial.”

An angry WSJ editorial responded that, “If “J’Accuse” is the new standard of proof, then we have a long list of Democrats who should be summarily dismissed from public life.”

Anatomically Correct Memories

Judge Kavanaugh’s accusers have memory gaps. But that’s not surprising considering their allegations are thirty-something years old. So Deborah Ramirez consulted with a lawyer for six days to clear her head. And only then was she comfortable retrieving the memory of Brett Kavanaugh’s long dong silver in her face.

Which brought to mind the child daycare hysteria cases, also from the 1980’s. (Not to say Deborah Ramirez is hysterical.) But therapists in those cases used anatomically correct dolls to coerce very young children to recover “repressed” memories of satanic ritual sex abuse.

Btw, this isn’t my first anatomically correct rodeo.
