Does Baby Gaetz A Blanket?

As a parent, I understand the importance of a baby blanket. Once a child grows up and is not a real spoiled brat, they don’t  need one.

A baby security blanket will help to develop every child's sense of independence. Having something other than a parent that brings comfort helps to provide individuality and allows for a healthy separation. But what about a big baby with a silver spoon up his butt?

Racist and gender-based violence, white supremacy, and xenophobia have afflicted our nation since its inception. We must all name them, condemn them, and do everything within our power to halt them, wherever and in whatever form they occur.

An overwhelming amount of research by organizational scientists, psychologists, sociologists, economists, and demographers conducted over the years shows us that socially mixed groups and those with a diversity of race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation are much more productive and innovative than homogeneous ones.

The Trump Virus

After listening to free-flowing #CPAC Oral diarrhea more Americans are asking to be inoculated for the Trump virus. #TrumpVirus

More than one-half million have died in the USA since Trump lied and continue to spread misinformation about the deadly Pandemic. Does he have any shame, integrity, morals, decency or respect for American lives? CPAC was a super-spreader event with the exponential contagious infections from attendees flying or driving back to their cities and states, and most likely exposing more folks to a dangerous variant of the virus.

Donald Trump’s tax records are now in the hands of the New York district attorney. Prosecutors obtained the “millions of pages of documents” on Monday, just hours after the Supreme Court denied Trump's last-ditch effort to keep the records private.

Dangerous Attractions

Bonnie and Clyde were an unstoppable team. The ragtag bank robber duo were inspiring legends everywhere they went.

Bonnie Elizabeth Parker and Clyde Champion Barrow were lovers who traveled the Central United States with their gang during the Great Depression. They were known for their bank robberies, although they also robbed small stores and rural businesses.

This image of their romantic embrace makes it clear why so many people were attracted to their story. Even if they were hardened criminals, you wanted to root for their passion.

This is a significant defeat for Trump, and we have the US Supreme Court to thank after declining to halt the turnover of his tax records in a New York state prosecution.

SCOTUS action is the culmination of a lengthy legal battle that had reached the high court once before. This second time puts his taxes on the firing line. 

This one is a one two punch and a hard blow because he had fought on so many fronts to keep his tax records shielded from view. The ongoing investigation the records are part of what could also be an issue for Trump in his after life.
