My wife, an accomplished cook, returned from the grocery store shell shocked. A (normally) $2.50 bag of clementines was $8. $6 for a head of cauliflower. Vegetables are expensive, or poor quality, or unavailable. Didn't the masters of the universe tell us meat was destroying the planet and we had to eat vegetables? Unfortunately they don't seem to be able to provide them.

Stone soup, anyone?

Jan 6 detainees (American citizens) are being held without bail for months and months while being mistreated in jail. The overseeing judge is getting so impatient with the gov stonewalling that he's threatening the prosecution with contempt. Are the Gitmo detainees getting better treatment in Cuba than Americans right here at home?

The lead security expert for Dominion voting machine company admitted in deposition that he was/is a raging anti-trump social media poster. The lead security guy in charge of the voting machines counting the votes for our "sacred" election. Can't make this stuff up for a movie.

The Att General of the US son in law is financially benefiting from the push to implement the teaching of controversial "critical race theory" in American High Schools. The same Att General threatening to treat the parents objecting to the teaching of CRT like terrorists.

We live now, under Biden, like the worst fears daily rehashed on CNN during the Trump years. It's uncanny.

I noticed Laslo commenting in a post today. I don’t know if I just haven’t been paying attention and he’s been here since comments were turned back on. If not, the Althouse blog just went up a notch or two.

I have seen no answer to my question from yesterday so I will rephrase it. What is going on in the US DOT? Yes, I get that Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg had been out of pocket for two months, but his Deputy, Polly Trottenberg, has an excellent CV for transportation issues. Why hasn’t somebody in the US DOT done something? Now combine Buttigieg’s boondoggle trip to a UN conference on Climate Change with Jen Psaki’s snippy responses to questions about empty shelves in grocery stores and sharply higher prices on food staples, and it looks as though the Biden administration flat does not care about anyone who isn’t rich.

Joe Biden came into office pledging to unify the country. The latest Zogby poll suggests his administration is doing just that; if the trend keeps going then in the end either you’ll work directly for that clown and be dependent on him for a salary, or you’ll hate his guts.

Headline: Police say a woman was raped on Pennsylvania train while others sat and did nothing…
Though there weren’t ‘dozens of people’, there were enough that ‘collectively, they could have gotten together and done something’. Via Independent.co.uk linked to r/TwoXChromosomes

They are down voting my response like mad.

some serious questions for you parent peoples....
2 month paid paternity leave?
Did ANY of you get 2 months PAID paternity leave?
Did you get 2 month paternity leave?
Did you get paternity leave?

Did you get MATERNITY leave? How long was it? Was it Paid?

I'm thinking that IF our Sec of Transportation can miss TWO MONTHS...
We don't really have/need a Sec of Transportation

Follow up questions
IF you're a New Sec of Trans....Is THAT the time to adopt children?
IF you DO adopt a child, while being Sec of Transportation....
WHAT do you DO for the two months of Paid Paternity leave? Watch your nanny change diapers?

I too saw that comment by Laslo and was suffused as always with delight. Getting the band back together!
