Tucker Carlson accuses America of declaring “a jihad” on Russia because it’s “an orthodox Christian country with traditional values”

People like Tucker Carlson?

My god, what a douchebag. Anyone defending Russia is a traitor.

Shoot, Lindsay, you’re right. I’m terrified that Walker might woo young children to vote Republican.

“What is this all about? Why Herschel? They’re beating all of our guys up, but what is it about this guy? He changes the entire narrative of the left. 

“We’re a party of racists, Sean. Me and you are racists, the Republican Party is racist. Well what happens when the Republican party elects and nominates Herschel Walker, an African American, black Heisman Trophy winner, right? Olympian. 

“It destroys the whole narrative. They’re scared to death of Herschel walker because if Herschel Walker becomes a Republican, maybe every other young child in America of color might want to be a Republican. 

“That’s what they’re trying to do. Don’t let them get away with it.” – Sen. Lindsey Graham, last night on Hannity.

Half-assing it.

While in talk therapy for many years, I was gifted with some advice that I take with me everywhere I go: “Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good.”

Talking through perfectionism helped me so much in so many aspects of my life. The other key to any self betterment was when I learned different methods of “self compassion.”

Perfectionism is a curse. It can be anyway.

This thread from the above ADHD individual who uses two stickies with “Half-ass it” and “Do it poorly” resonated with me. Sometimes shit that I do looks so bad that I can’t bare to share it. But when shared, it’s considered some of other people’s favorite or very appealing.

Another person on the twitter thread shared this gem:

Congratulations, you have free will, but you do not have the freedom to express free will

This little interview with Mike Pence, likely a 2024 presidential contender and a man the former guy wanted killed by a mob of gullible loons, is shockingly stupid.

The group that wants you to believe you have free will while removing it at the same time does not think you have the right to disbelief.

That’s freedom for ya.

Intelligence isn’t Mike Pence’s middle name.

A five year old shows Mozart who’s boss

Saw this at TYWKIWDBI. So good. So so good.

Also very notable is this post “The “Pillars of Creation” (Hubble and Webb)” showing the difference in quality between the two satellites’ abilities and a reminder of how dense our universe is, how old is really is, and how gloriously amazing.

That a group both looks at this and sees God and/or god’s hand simultaneously denying scientific achievement, age of the universe, and its ability to measure/predict/help/heal is the greatest conundrum I struggle with almost every day.

Carlson ain’t the only one going full QAnon

In the above clip, Carlson says: “Abortion politics is a total fixation of Democratic donors. It’s the main thing they care about. Why is that, by the way? It’s a religion. It’s a child sacrifice cult. But not everyone else feels that way, even Democrats.”

Democrats don’t feel that way because nobody is sacrificing children.

If democrats are a “child sacrifice cult,” why haven’t I been able to get my mouth around some of that juicy goodness?

I mean, socialism shares the goods, right?

Fuck Tucker Carlson and those who watch him. Jesus.

This is a full QAnon conspiracy theory. Q has its claws so entrenched in most everyone I know that little things are becoming more and more impossible to talk to them about.

Here’s a pretty damn good demonstration of the inability for republicans consuming information to get anything straight. When they’re this lost, how can anyone help them.

The almost universally white republican support for Ye even after he dropped antisemitic hate should be more than disturbing even for the average conservative.

We are living in something way beyond the Twilight Zone.

Supposed conservative anti-woke, anti-big government state enjoys $1,000,000,000 in socialist handouts

From Florida Politics:

Twenty-two days since Hurricane Ian hit the Gulf Coast and forged a path of destruction across the state, the amount of federal recovery aid distributed to the state blew past the $1 billion mark.

The speed of the aid’s distribution appears to be outpacing — and by some measures overtaking — the federal aid that followed Hurricane Michael’s 2018 landfall.

So far, the amount of individual assistance given to individuals in 26 counties is at $545 million and counting, compared to the $319 million in individual assistance that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) reported distributed one year after Hurricane Michael, which was the most recent major hurricane to hit the state.

By contrast, individuals in just 12 counties were eligible for individual assistance after Michael.
