In Case You Missed It: July 4, 2022

With so much going on in our world, we sometimes miss important issues. Please feel free to share any headlines we may have missed or new developments providing they come from reliable and credible sources. We won’t accept any parroted, Russian propaganda from far-right ‘news’ sources unless you’re trying to point out that the far-right extremist in our country and elsewhere actually believe their own BS or Russian disinformation. Nor, will we except any parroted far-right BS regarding issues occurring here, at home. We also ask that you provide a link to your source so folks can read it if they want. Please do not make any claims that you cannot factually validate or verify.

PSA:

For what it’s worth, Happy 4th of July.

I know many of us aren’t feeling so free as we watch the Extreme Court strip away our rights and implement the American Taliban/Creeping Christian Law agenda so many fundie freaks have salivated over for years. But, there is a way we can all get involved, slow their roll, and help save our democracy: Please visit this website and perhaps, embark on a letter writing campaign.

It’s not CA, NY, or the Confederate States that determine the outcome of elections; we know how those states will vote. It’s the ‘swing’ states and swing voters that do. So, maybe reach out to a few and get their attention that they, too, could easily become the next victims of the Extreme Court.

Based on Samuel Mussolini’s (Alito) opinion in Dobbs, he pointed out what was NOT in the Constitution (privacy) so therefore, privacy isn’t really a right in the World According to Sam. Guess what else is not in the Constitution? WOMEN!, SSM, birth control, interracial marriage (but I’m sure Uncle Clarence will spin that somehow), public education, and a whole host of other stuff we’ve taken for granted that will not affect White male property owners if taken away by an Extreme Court ruling.

So, get involved, please and…VOTE! We have to get more members of the Democratic Party in Congress to codify the rights we’ve taken for granted for many years.

COVID-19/COVIDIOTS:

Ultra-contagious BA.4, BA.5 subvariants fuel coronavirus spread across much of California

In a sign of how the new coronavirus wave continues to spread across California, two-thirds of the state’s counties are now in the high COVID-19 community level, in which the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends universal masking in indoor public spaces.

This comes as health officials are warning of concerning weeks ahead as two new ultra-contagious Omicron subvariants — BA.4 and BA.5 — spread. Experts believe the subvariants, which are are not only especially contagious but also capable of reinfecting those who have survived earlier Omicron infection, are a major factor behind the continued persistence of coronavirus transmission across California.

***Dust off those masks, people and ditch the ‘Pumpkin Magic’ bullshit. You could end up dead like a White Supremacist MAGAt.

Police Behaving Poorly:

Michigan police to conduct review after officers used images of Black men as target practice

Photos showing targets were taken during a Boy Scouts field trip to the Farmington Hills police department in April

Gun Violence:

A Fourth of July parade in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park was halted by gunfire as onlookers fled in terror minutes after the event began at 10 a.m. local time.

Video from the scene appears to show dozens of people fleeing as music continues to play.

“Police are responding to an incident in downtown Highland Park,” the city said in a Facebook post. “Fourth Fest has been canceled.”

What Others are Saying:

Craven Assholes:

Although Romney does and says the right thing, in approximately ten minutes, he’ll be back to being a Craven Asshole like ALL Republicans.

Missouri state rep resigns after federal conviction for COVID-19 fraud scheme

A Missouri state lawmaker resigned on Friday after a jury found her guilty on 22 counts for fraudulently accepting hundreds of thousands of pandemic-era federal stimulus dollars and other offenses.

Missouri state Rep. Tricia Derges (R) was convicted on Tuesday after she applied for nearly $900,000 in CARES Act funds for what she said were COVID-19 testing costs incurred by nonprofit Lift Up, but the organization never provided any testing services, according to a press release from the Department of Justice (DOJ).
