    ok dokey. I’ll try googling it tonight.

    A final bow, Sir. I have been contemplating stopping commenting here. And you helped me reach the conclusion that this isn’t healthy for me. And that revelation led to other decisions. I did research this afternoon on volunteering for political campaigns or an LGBT support organization. No more whining. I’m going to see what I can actually do.

    Thanks. Have a nice church day…or something to that effect. LOL

    I didn’t need to. I know what a “state of exception” is. And how it can be utilized by a dictatorship (which is not the case here with Trump being indicted for his various crimes.) It came up as a topic many times during covid restrictions by the government.

    You are correct. I do want an answer. And I get plenty of them. But, I want an honest answer. Those are seriously rare. My quest has similarities to Diogenes…and some big differences from Diogenes of course. To start, I’m not about to live in a large wine cask or m@sturb@te in public as he was reputed to do.

    Regardless, despite being a whiner, I also give credit to cleverness when it is due. I missed yesterday your “Have a nice day in church….” closing to your comment where you merged the 2 insincere platitudes used by people here. Well played.

    Are you really arguing a state of exception validates what Trump did?

    Cults tend to practice idolatry of a leader. Republicans are doing that conspicuously with Trump. One of the reasons Democrats have difficulty against Republicans is their divided nature and inability to act in lockstep according to the decrees of a single authority…which Republicans do easily.

    11 years? Pansy was uncommonly patient.

    Unfortunately, many people I encounter do have to look up what “due process” is.

    That hasn’t been my experience. When I went to pride in June, several Michigan Democrat elected officials showed up…including the Governor, despite the state Republican party using her attendance at Pride in past years in attack ads. Our two US senators both express pro-LGBT sentiments publicly. And many of our US representatives do also. Maybe I don’t notice the behavior you state happens because the elected Republicans make such a clamor about LGBT being a threat that some Democrats don’t have to do anything to look good? When I lived in Chicago, the democratic party there was very supportive of LGBT. And that was my experience also when I lived in Tennessee. Which honestly surprised me in that part of the country. And the short time I lived in Denver, the democratic party was very vocal in support of LGBT…especially when groups based in Denver like Focus on the Family would make some very mean public statements.

    Do you have a specific location or politician you are thinking of?

    True enough. A lot of politicians use bigotry of LGBT on their political platforms to get elected in the first place….and it does get them elected in red leaning areas.
