Born and raised in the southwest U.S. Red Raider undergrad, then a Lobo. Transplanted to the east coast almost 20 years ago. Live and work in the DC area but don't hold it against me - I'm still a country boy at heart! Happily married to an artist and proud grampa to two boys. I'm told 1957 was a good year, but I really don't remember.

    The ill-informed nonsense is thick today. Yes, some of them are coming illegally. But they are not invading, they are seeking escape from horrendous conditions and trying to make a better life for themselves and their loved ones. Period. They are not thugs and rapists, but normal people dealt a bad hand by where they were born. Every one of you would be lying if you were to say you wouldn’t consider doing exactly the same thing if it were you and your family living in poverty and squalor under a dictator somewhere. Yet because you were lucky enough to be born here rather than there, it’s somehow OK to be hateful towards those who were not? And no democrats (of which I am not) are welcoming them so much as they just are not being hateful to them. And people of both parties who need the cheap labor on their farms and ranches welcome them, even if publicly saying otherwise. Many of these immigrants even qualify – legally – for asylum because of the conditions they’re leaving in their home nations. Until a certain individual made it a divisive subject, immigration historically was NOT a partisan issue as it is today. It distresses me to see how we’ve become a nation with so much hatred and that it’s OK for that hate, racism, and misogyny to be so public. I’ve always thought it would be interesting to see the family histories of those who are now up in arms about something that has been happening for decades. How many of our ancestors came here under questionable circumstances, and when?

    She needs to but will she? I suspect we all know the answer is no, at least unless or until Kip makes her. He’s starting to be a solid character who needs to finally see through Stef’s shallow selfishness. We know what he sees in her/gets from his relationship with her, but at what point is that enough? Yes, even for a college QB…

    It’s going to turn out to be something Stef stole from Bets, or something similar. There’s more to the story of that rug.

  4. about 19 hours ago on Luann

    I agree, there’s going to be more about that rug; they’re making too much of a big deal about it. It’s even held up for display in the last panel, so we haven’t heard the last about that rug. Methinks…

    Not too surprising though, considering their own names for their countries. España for Spain and Deutschland for Germany.

    Well, there can be no doubt that Stef has zero intention to accept that she was wrong or that she will let Tiff know the whole story, including the false accusations.

    Isn’t it funny though, that only THEIR election was rigged and none of the others on the same ticket? Or in tRump’s 2020 case, only the presidential race was “rigged” and none of the others on the same ticket had problems? It’s astounding that someone elected on the same ballot can claim that the presidential ticket was rigged but their own election is valid. I have a feeling if those who are calling for a “rerun” of the election were told that they would have to leave office until the election was rerun, they might not be yelling so loudly about it. The hypocrisy is astounding.

    I love the sound of that phrase “decreasing gang”. I can’t wait until they decrease into oblivion, along with their orange fuehrer.

    That’s not what he said. Repubs are publicly saying they are running for secretary of state in several states to ensure they control voting. It’s supposed to be neutral, not partisan but TFG’s big lie has sabotaged that fundamental aspect of democracy.

  10. 6 days ago on Prickly City

    Be real people, something like 40% of those running – all repubs – to run elections (usually as secretary of each state) are doing so because they believe the big lie and want to ensure they control elections. They’re saying it out loud, so don’t you dare say it isn’t happening. The GQP candidate for secretary of state in AZ just this week said something like it would be fantasy if anyone thinks they’ll see him certifying a Joe Biden win in 2024.
