NOT ' Our Better Angels ' : Wetback Nation


The Largest Mass Deportation in American History: As many as 1.3 million people may have been swept up in the Eisenhower-era campaign called 'Operation Wetback.'


Wikipedia: Operation Wetback

Do you remember? Did you know?  Not that long after interment of Americans of Japanese ethnicity.

Let's not repeat this mistake ... let's find our 'better angels'.

How Trump wins in 2024 !!??? ... how to innoculate against it!

 Riot!  I don't think so!

Corrupt all the local election officials!  I don't think so ... maybe some on their own!

The ANSWER!  Prevent States from certifying their election results ... YES!

It may only take a few!

What can we do about it?  Public Service/Education Announcements ... hit the airwaves and newspapers and the internet with 'real live election officials' showing us the process from the inside out.  Publically identifying all individuals who serve in any kind of 'certifying board'.  

Those boards or officials who are not willing to support PSAs or be identified should be suspect.

It is really important, even given possible harassment, that the 'officials' be known so they can be supported and kept free of intimidation.

Thousands of localities and hundreds of times before November.

Trump and 'Bibi' Netanyahu - How would they handle 'Gaza' ? Humanitarian Miracle?


Is the past prelude?  Would we have a humanitarian miracle?

How to lobby without money seems to always require 'protest'?  Maybe one should consider:

    'Change your policy and we will bring you two more voters supporting you!'

Diplomatic maxims -

    Don't cut your nose off to spite your face!


    Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then!

WI Senate District 24 - Incumbent Republican Patrick Testin - Challenger Collin McNamara (Democrat) - Gerrymander in Practice


Last time I checked, only Senate District 24 had a challenger to the incumbent.  That's out of sixteen State Senators up for election in 2024. Is this another definition of "gerrymandered".

Your district is so safe no one will even bother to run against you.

Of the three assembly districts within Senate 24 only Assembly District 71, which contains Stevens Point, is represented by a Democrat - Katrina Shankland.

Collin McNamara has his work cut out for him!

Senate District 24 covers parts of seven counties ... Adams, Jackson, La Crosse, Monroe, Portage, Waushara, Wood.

Move over Jon Meacham, Jonathan Haidt ... make room for Frans de Waal


Implies that one-third of us have some tendencies two-thirds of us question!


 A most astute observer...Being both more systematically brutal than chimps and more empathic than bonobos, we are by far the most bipolar ape. Our societies are never completely peaceful, never completely competitive, never ruled by sheer selfishness, and never perfectly moral. — Frans de Waal(Primatologist)

Righteous Politicians are Scary - not Leaders ( Trump, Walker, Santorum , Huckabee )

Move over Jon #Meacham, Jon #Haidt ... make room for Frans de #Waal ... #JonMeacham #deWaal
