Leaving early?

October 20, 2021

Posted this in the 9th

Dear Dodgers fans…. unlike last night – NOW it might be okay to leave before the game is over. You’re welcome, SF Giants fans. (But we’d stay.)

Seeing scores in ALCS games 3 and 4, and NLCS game 4 and thinking, this Mr. Mo. Mentum guy might be overrated.

United Airlines pilot today. “We will ask you ONE time to put your mask back on. If you do it a second time you will be handed a card saying you are banned from flying United in future permanently.”

Watching all these openers and other weird pitching changes and thinking —how lucky we SF Giants fans were to get to watch Madison Bumgarner in the postseason!

Wish the media would spend as much time on GOP voting to kill democracy as they are spending on the possible death of a suspect in the killing of Gabby Petito.

I suppose it would be churlish to wonder if an alligator saved American taxpayers a whole lot of money plus not having the media obsessed with a trial for a man who probably murdered his fiancee.

It’s not just that Republican Senators voted against #FreedomToVoteAct It’s that they’re afraid PUBLICLY to say why they voted against it. They hope we won’t notice. Prove them wrong!

Iowa Senator Joni Ernst is lying & pretending President Biden is having parents who simply speak out at school board meetings be investigated by FBI. Parents who speak out? No. Parents who threaten & intimidate school board members and others. Yes. That IS domestic terrorism.

Senator Mike Lee talking again about vaccine mandates keeping people from working and providing for their families. As of today 728,000 Americans are permanently unable to work.

Another day, more headlines on small minority of employees & businesses who are putting lives at risk by refusing to follow vaccine mandates. Dear media – we really need to start having more headlines “Overwhelming majority of Americans understand vaccine mandates save lives.

Mitch McConnell “It’s my hope the 2022 election will be a referendum on performance of the current administration, not a rehash of suggestions about what may have happened in 2020.” So is this Mitch’s way of saying he’s very troubled by the Former Guy?

Let’s not forget. This wasn’t about voting against voting rights. This was about the Senate voting not even to debate voting rights.

Senator Amy Klobuchar asking her GOP Senate colleagues “Why would you shy away from debating this bill?

Sadly, we know why. “Some people don’t want some people to vote.” #FreedomToVoteAct

Today’s vote against democracy wasn’t a surprise. So have to figure there’s a planned next step. Klobuchar and others spent a LOT of time with Joe Manchin getting him involved in writing this bill. And the bill goes through rules committee. It’s not over.
