Surprising no one, the majority of voters in the agrarian state of Georgia went to a racist pig, Karen Handel.

It gives me great pleasure to report that yet another matador has died in the ring, as I am glad to announce the death of any serial killer. The goree was Ivan Fandino, who clumsily tripped on his cape giving the bull, the innocent victim, the chance to achieve a moment of rare retribution. Naturally in this cruel "sport" the bull can never win so the poor animal was put to death for achieving a victory. (Sadists are not good sports.) Fandino, a Spaniard, was 36 years old. The bull whose name was Prevechito was only five and had lost an ear in a previous unfair fight with Ivan.  This goring took place in Aire-sur-L'Adour, France, in case you were thinking that only Spaniards were heartless killers.

I love the Republicans. They work their asses off to cut social services, dump Meals and Wheels, strive to make sure women don't have health services, remove financial aid to children who otherwise might go hungry, and do whatever they can to make sure that the wealthy get far wealthier. Then, while they take a break from their  highly paid, super privileged, secure jobs with all kinds of benefits so they can play baseball they are assaulted by a nut with the kind of rifle Republicans made possible. That's when they all get together and pray to God. You know God, that deity whose face they spat into when they cruelly removed all those charitable services to the needy people that the Christian bible—supposedly the word of God—says you are supposed to care for. What hypocrites!

As a True Crime addict, I probably watch more murders, kidnappings, arsons, and other crimes than any respectable TV fare, and I'm surprised at how many others of my acquaintance do as well. In this post I just want to list few observations I have had during my years of crime addiction. 1. There are very few, almost no, detectives in America who know the difference between "lay' and "lie".  95% of the time they will say, "the body was laying there." 2, For some weird reason, detectives will often refer to the man who stabbed a woman 50 times before beheading her and setting her on fire as "the gentleman in question". Huh?  3. Many supposedly educated criminologists think that "drug" is the past tense of "drag". Huh, again. 4. Many woman are murdered during the night because they leave a window unlocked. 5. An impressive numbers of murders of both woman and men result from not walking away at the first sign that the person you're involved with is possessive and jealous. 6. Other murders result in not checking out that fabulous person you met who is just too good be true. 7. It is an unwise, often doomed, spouse who says, "I'm going to take you for every penny you have." 8. Serial killers are often handsome, charming, and delightful company. Sorry, I can't write any more, The Killer Next Door is about to start.

It's amazing how ignorant our Congressmen are of The Constitution. I've seen on the news several times today the lot of them kneeling in prayer, Christian prayer. How can these men who are paid by the United States not know it is forbidden by Constitutional law to pay obeisance to any religion—hence the separation of church and state. Fortunately the Freedom from Religion Foundation has been working hard to get religion out of public high schools, government supported buildings, sports teams, etc. Shocking that one of the biggest offenders is our own Congress. Also all the media is equally ignorant of this Constitutional law considering with what frequency and regard they show all these adult men kneeling on the ground in 2017 and paying lip service to a god no more real than Ares or Jupiter.

While the shooting incident on the baseball field in Alexandria today was very disturbing, it also unleashed tons of maudlin sentiments, insincere promises of bipartisanship which will be forgotten long before Congressman Steve Scalise's wound heals, and a sickening display of superstitious Christianity suggesting that we Americans don't know, nor do we accept, any other religion. But worst of all, this shooting has all has the shallow and gullible newscasters praising Trump for not sending his usual insane tweet. Apparently he can act like an asshole for weeks, but if he behaves normally for ten minutes, not only is all forgiven but admired. Yes, these shootings
are terrible, tragic, too often heartbreaking, but I would like the Republicans (whom this man targeted) to keep in mind it is they who insist on keeping hideable guns and terrifying assault weapons in the hands of just about anybody who suddenly feels like going on a rampage.

Isn't it nice that after today's tragedy the Republicans can suddenly be be so kissy, huggy, and buddy buddy with Democrats—something they can never be while doing the jobs we pay them so much for?
