Thanks for the Anne Lamott link, a writer I love. As always it brought a smile and a tear.. So true. We are here but for a short time, and the things that really matter become much more clear. The heart is the best place to live, ultimately, soft as it is.

Thank you so much for including For The Olds. After reading the NYT article about the lawyers for Trump II, I needed that to put things into perspective.

For the Olds made my day. Thank you for including today. I personally believe Lachlan was annoyed that Tucker misrepresented how close they were. We had a guy raise ranks way too quickly because he convinced people in high places he was connected to the CEO. When he went too far harassing people, we knew we had to terminate him. We went to the CEO who said he had no idea who the guy was.

Counter-elites are on the move. From Russell Vought to Leonard Leo, and now Mr. McEntee, everyone wants to staff the government with lackeys of their own choice. Each man thinks they're the one who can manage the ambitious hordes eager to climb the ladder of success without the encumbrance of credential. I think they may represent a universal type however that is routinely surprised to find that the cadres have their own designs on power and may decide dumping control freaks like Vought and Leo is better for their own ambitions.

For a pinch of perspective: fPOTUS’ plans if re-elected is essentially -- aided by SCOTGOP and a Republican majority in both houses -- at least in sync with GOP goals for decades, arguably since the New Deal.

It follows, then, that focusing too much to fPOTUS distracts from the bigger threat of GOP goals. For example: all that state-level gerrymandering isn’t just for fPOTUS but for the benefit of Republican politicians.

Of course, Trump coverage is important but excluding the threat from the GOP, well, that’s what brought us to this point.

I'm guessing they have stayed willfully ignorant of the Webb telescope because it is too hard to explain to viewers how it can see bazillions of light years away in a universe created 6000 years ago.

"Project 2025, a well-funded effort by the Heritage Foundation to prepare personnel and policy for the next conservative administration"

Pay very close attention to Proj'25. It's not a matter of IF, but WHEN.
