A Bit of Wisdom on Political Parties from George Washington

"However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men (and women) will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion." ~ George Washington

    The parties suck?
    No, it's the people that are being elected that suck.
    When our representatives don't have the same standards as the electorate, then things will change.
    Unfortunately, the candidates are a reflection of the standards we now accept as a society.

      And John having to shut down the comments on Jenny are an example of people's standards sinking to new levels every day.

        It seems like the Bistro in Arnold is going by the guidelines with the curbside service and maybe other places will heed to that also. Thank you, SRS

      Time for a third party. I agree. Time for the GOP to split. It should reject all the nut case radical right wing, the Trumpers, the Nunes, McCarthy, McClintocks, all the trump sycophants, all the racists, fascists, the super rich oligarchs. the so called patriot militias, kick’em all out. Return to honorable American patriots. Maybe like General Eisenhower, Papa Busch. Hell, even Reagan. This current crop of Republicans are a threat to to well being of American families and our democracy. When will any of them stand up against the insurgents.

The founders recognized the threat of a Trump, but they didn’t realize there would a McConnell too.
They never could have imagined how quickly lies and propaganda could spread today.

      No not at all. They have it completely correct. And do you brain dead traitors think we're going to just sweep our memories of Trump and his mob assaulting and attempting to overthrow our government away because of your senseless diversions? Forget it. The insurrection of January 6th 2021, the wanton killings and destruction, will never be forgotten.

        Coup Attempt
        Posted on: 2021-01-10 12:01:30   By: Anonymous
         
        On Wednesday we watched an attempted coup of our government.
        There were many proponents of the coup, the president,his family members, Senators, House members, lawyers , and some capital police, and pentagon officials, Fox news, hate radio, social media platforms, and those who believed the lies of the president, all conspired, supported the attempted coup of our government.

        This includes those who continue to make excuses and believe the lies that the news media is fake , as was the election, all to foment an attempted coup.

        We must prosecute those involved at the top. No looking forward as the Republicans wish us to do. They want to be allowed to slink away as they did with the bush administration. This set the platform for this subversion of our government again.

        We must prosecute all involved including the Senators, House members who continuously push the lies that fed the attempt coup.

        It must not be lost that this was a Republican party only attempted coup.
        The party is fully responsible because of it's cult like fealty to the corrupt dump mob.

      George Washington was foreseeing, clearly, the current Republican Party, a majority of its supporters, as well as their seditious Donald Trump. All created in great part by Fox, Limbaugh, Alex Jones, Qanon, etc.

          You must not have traveled Calaveras County in October.
          There were Trump flags up and down Hwy 4 and Hwy 49.
          68% of this county voted for Trump and they didn't all live in Angels Camp.

            That is damn pathetic. Really? That is scary that such a high percentage of this county didn’t recognize trump as a con man.

Well I see we have more wisdom from the weekly wipe the pine tree!!! Let’s just remove any part of the American history that has anything to do with the evil white man!! Antifa and BLM are the only people in America that matter. After all, they didn’t burn down cities and destroy businesses!! They are sinless just like Jesus!!
