    Might be difficult if it’s the MAGAt branch of the Troll line. Everything they say and do seems to be a joke within itself.

    Let’s not overlook something else about the Old Boggy. It’s cute the way he tries to find a way to use his new words that he gets from his “Word of the Day” calendar.

    Swampy has never been receptive to education. His foreign handlers forbid any outside materials and ideas from contaminating their precious ones.

    McCARTHY ERA v TRUMP ERA

    The WI senator was a raging crazed alcoholic with mental problems. The only difference between him and the demented fat orange clown is that the clown’s addiction is fast food. Senate.gov politely avoids mentioning McCarthy’s addiction as his reign of destroying lives ended. As John Oliver said on a recent show, Melania can be seen staring into the distance waiting for coronary artery disease to do is job.

    In the spring of 1954, McCarthy picked a fight with the U.S. Army, charging lax security at a top-secret army facility. The army responded that the senator had sought preferential treatment for a recently drafted subcommittee aide. Amidst this controversy, McCarthy temporarily stepped down as chairman for the duration of the three-month nationally televised spectacle known to history as the Army-McCarthy hearings.

    The army hired Boston lawyer Joseph Welch to make its case. At a session on June 9, 1954, McCarthy charged that one of Welch’s attorneys had ties to a Communist organization. As an amazed television audience looked on, Welch responded with the immortal lines that ultimately ended McCarthy’s career: “Until this moment, Senator, I think I never really gauged your cruelty or your recklessness.” When McCarthy tried to continue his attack, Welch angrily interrupted, “Let us not assassinate this lad further, senator. You have done enough. Have you no sense of decency?”

    Overnight, McCarthy’s immense national popularity evaporated. Censured by his Senate colleagues, ostracized by his party, and ignored by the press, McCarthy died three years later, 48 years old and a broken man.

    I was a college administrator for a few years and the smartest student I ever met was very proud of her Polish heritage. By the age of 35 she was a very successful patent attorney supervising a group of mostly male attorneys.

    She and her Polish husband always enjoyed the better jokes.

    OK. If you don’t like the reference to the language…Polack jokes then.

    I have often wondered if that lawyer had any idea of how his question during those hearings would endure and resonate.

    Biden appears to be aiming for the same result, but he might be stymied by a news system that has many Americans not just unaware of the good economic news, but believing the opposite. Lauren Aratani of The Guardian reported earlier this week on an exclusive Harris poll showing that 56% of Americans believe incorrectly that the U.S. is in a recession. Those following the stock market are slightly more informed: 49% of them think the S&P stock market index is down for the year. Almost half of those polled—49%—think unemployment is at a 50-year high. Seventy-two percent think inflation is increasing. Fifty-eight percent of those polled blame Biden for mismanaging an economy that is in fact the strongest in the world.

    Tempting as it is to blame the media for its relentless focus on bad news rather than good, a study from NBC News at the end of April showed that those who follow national newspapers and media swing heavily to Biden, while those who either don’t follow politics or get their news from YouTube and social media favor Trump or Robert Kennedy Jr.

    You’re correct about the propaganda. Then add that much of the MSM is doing little to thwart it. This bit from HCR is timely.————-

    The administration has used the power of the federal government to begin to unwind the trickle-down economy that between 1981 and 2021 transferred $50 trillion from the bottom 90% of the U.S. to the top 1%, hollowing out the middle class. The result has been solid economic growth of 5.7% in 2021, 1.9% in 2022, and 2.5% in 2023.

    The unemployment rate has been at record lows of under 4% for more than two years, the strongest run since the 1960s. Inflation is not rising; it is falling and is now at 3.4%, higher than the Federal Reserve’s preferred mark of 2% but down significantly from its high of 9.1% in June 2022, just after the worst of the pandemic eased. At 4.5% growth over 2023, wage growth outpaced inflation, meaning that although prices have risen, workers have come out ahead. The S&P stock market index went up about 24% in 2023 and is up more than 12% this year.

    In the 1930s, under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, federal investment in the impoverished South quieted much of the region’s opposition to the federal government. Limiting crops in exchange for subsidies both brought higher prices and helped to repair damaged soil, new labor regulations got children out of factories and raised workers’ pay, and the government brought electricity and health care to places private industry wouldn’t go.
