    Stars aren't "perfect". Not sure what the concept of perfect stars means. They are simply nuclear fusion in various stages. No moral values . Just physics.

    And if someone is watching over us they are doing a hell of a lousy job.

    Kristi Noem was grilled on CBS Sunday show about her lie she stared down Kim Jong Un. She couldn't answer so she blathered about all the unnamed world leaders she had met. Because world leaders line up to meet governor of South Dakota.

    Her talked of killing her dog is about the only thing in her book that isn't a lie.

    Romney Admits Push to Ban TikTok Is Aimed at Censoring News Out of Gaza

    A conversation between Secretary of State Antony Blinken and the Republican senator offered an "incredible historical document" showing how the U.S. views its role in the Middle East.

    https://www.commondreams.org/news/gaza-israel-tiktok

    Even Mitt admits that the TikTok ban is all about controlling the media.

    Close to home.

    When I was that age children rarely wore glasses. There was an idea children didn't need corrective lenses. So children only got glasses if they were absolute bats. As in eyesight. I was a bat. The only child in the elementary school with glasses. When my adult teeth came in they stuck straight out. My mother would put my hair in a pony tail or braid but it never stayed neat.

    Fuck calling it bullying. It's abuse. It was constant. Teachers and school authorities turned their backs.

    The murderer Abbott pardoned had made a series of racist posts on social media as well as publicly saying he wanted to kill Black Lives Matter protesters. That is why jury rejected claim of self defense. He also tried to connect with young girls on line and was being prosecuted for sharing explicit photos with an underage girl.

    Courtney Gore is a conservative Christian mother of four in small Texas town of Granbury. She is co-host of right wing local radio broadcast who had appeared on other right wing broadcasts where she heard that schools were being used to indoctrinate children in critical race theory, transgender ideology and far left politics. So she ran for school board pledging to ensure schools teach traditional American values and was elected.

    Unlike most would be book burners, Ms. Gore actually investigated. She pored over curricula and lesson plans. And found that there was no critical race theory, children were not being told to change gender, there was no indoctrination. She reported this to colleagues, thinking this was good news. Bad things were not happening! Instead, she was isolated. Dismissed. When she went public, she received death threats.

    This Christian conservative is really not understanding why being honest about something good is such a bad thing.

    Are you talking about their declaration regarding bridge lighting, or was there something else actually relating to flags?

    Bridge lights cannot display rainbow lights or Juneteenth.
    He is not yet banning display in private homes.

    That’s messed up. My kids never got bullied…. I believe I raised them with the correct mid state that it wouldn’t be tolerated. Regardless, those parents should have been down at the principals office the FIRST time that kid got bullied! Very sad.

    Unfortunately school authorities often feel more sympathetic to abusers than victims who they see as odd. They quote sticks and stones bullshit or say ignore it and it will go away.
