The Divided States of America

Contrary to Rep. Lauren Boebart’s tweet on the morning of January 6, 2021, it is not 1776, the year of our Declaration of Independence during the American Revolutionary War. Rebels are not fighting for freedom from an oppressive foreign regime. It is not even 1861, the year that the American Civil War started. Soldiers are…

ICE Deportations

Starting on October 16th, ICE will be able to deport people immediately if they can’t prove—right there and then—they’ve been in the USA at least two years legally. Plus, some election updates on today’s episode of The Daily Rose.

Cop Shows & Police Brutality Bonds

Lately I’ve been watching Lucifer. Before that, I’ve enjoyed shows like Bones, Dexter, The X Files, Marcella, and Wallander. Law and Order has been running for as long as I can remember, must be at least 20 years now! We hear Trump call for Law and Order over and over again, while sowing the seeds…
