In 17th Century Ireland Redmond O’Hanlon was known as the Robin Hood of Ulster, for not only did he rob the English and Scottish settlers, he also stole rent monies from the wealthy landlords to share with their Irish tenants from whom they had been taken. amazon.com/Universal-Wolf-Ti…

It is not society that is to guide & save the hero, but precisely the reverse. And so every one of us shares the supreme ordeal—carries the cross of the redeemer—not in the bright moments of her tribe’s great victories but in the silences of her personal despair. —Joseph Campbell
Scott Pelley: You knew it was stamped "Top Secret." You knew what that meant. Reality Winner: …I knew it was secret. But I also knew that I had pledged service to the American people. And at that point in time, it felt like they were being led astray. cbsn.ws/3xXauWy

#LouisDeJoy is destroying the @USPS! Twice now I've ordered something online and it took the PO 10 days to deliver it from less than 100 miles away in the same state. #Republicans want to privatize all gov't services so that they can enrich themselves.

Oh, of course, and you can probably schedule weekly massages. It'll be like a free stay at the St. Regis Spa Resort. I hope you like fatback and grits for breakfast.

I almost scrolled right past this. I thought at first that it was just another picture of #KyrstenSenema in one of her colorful dresses.
I think I need this. 😳

“Then Jesus said to him, ‘Put your sword back into its place. For thou shall not take a sword to a gun fight, lest thy perish by the gun’” "What fools these mortals be."
Is there really any more appropriate way for a Republican Congressman to honor the birth of Christ? It fits.

And #Vermont voters must elect @PeterWelch to assume Patrick Leahy's seat in the Senate.
It's a scandal that so many Americans may soon lose abortion access. The House took action and passed the Women's Health Protection Act, which ensures the right to abortion at the federal level. The Senate must do the same. Because #AbortionIsEssential. bit.ly/3G8KWbS

Of total War on Drugs funding 35% is spent on prevention & treatment; 65% on "source control", i.e., disrupting the drug trade. Of all drug arrests in the US, 80% are for possession & only 20% are for distribution. The #WarOnDrugs has failed, we need treatment not incarceration.
Many Americans find themselves in the grip of substance use disorder. To help these folks, we need treatment more than we need prosecution.

One huge problem, of course, is the coverage & treatment politicians receive from #CorporateMedia. Rather than highlight leadership qualities & accomplishments of women & men, it focuses on the antics of buffoons like #BigotBoebert & #MarjorieTraitorGreene thenation.com/article/societ…

#America, and especially the #CorporateMedia, needs to recognize that #RepublicanPoliticians are boldfaced liars. They prove it over and over again and it seems not to cause them any harm because the only people who vote for them have been successfully conned.
My gracious Jeanne Shaheen just handed Tom Cotton his own posterior on the Senate floor.

Hey! Madison, if respecting and protecting the rights of #women, #LGBTQ and #POC is emasculating (not demasculating, you ignorant yahoo) #America's young men, how goddamn fragile is their masculinity, or yours, for that matter?
The mother of the Michigan school shooter answered Madison Cawthorn’s call to turn her child into a monster. The GOP has declared a war on our kids and now 4 teens are dead this week because of it.

In new interview, Trump was asked if he regretted J6. He said the “real insurrection” was on Election Day and J6 was just a protest, that nobody gives him credit for drawing so many people to hear him speak that day, and “the other side had some very bad things happen.”

Throughout history outlaw heroes have served to provide oppressed people with dignity during their subjugation. Swashbuckling, romantic figures, they represented traditional justice as opposed to the self-interest & inequity of the state irishcentral.com/roots/histo… via @IrishCentral
