    I’m with @RadioFreeTom, who says this GOP can’t be trusted with power and Nikki Haley is a perfect example of why: “There is no way to know if she or any other candidate will withstand the antidemocratic demands of Republican primary voters.”

    Nikki Haley probably doesn’t want you to see this video of her calling to cut Social Security and Medicare.

    Why does the media want Nikki Haley to be a thing. She’s never going to be a thing. The national Republican electorate have never shown a shred of interest in her.

    WHY they like Nikki Haley?

    Kamala Harris is who they think Nimrata is….
    They like Nimrata because unlike Kamala, she centers whiteness for them first and foremost

    I have decided that I want an old-fashioned soul food dinner this weekend.
    Fried Chicken
    Mashed Potatoes
    Collard Greens
    Hot water cornbread
    Macaroni and cheese.

    Preparing myself mentally for what I need to do. LOL

    I went to Early Vote today. From check-in to when I put my ballot in the scanner, I was finished in 8 minutes. 

    You will never be able to convince me that long lines are nothing but deliberate voter suppression. Had 5 contests on my ballot and three were uncontested. 

    The lines for the Georgia Senate runoff were deliberate voter suppression.

    About Nikki Haley:

    She allows the national media to pretend the GOP has a significant moderate constituency. Same reason why they highlighted all those “never trumpers” over the last 6-8 years

    I still feel some kind of way about this. Thought the collection should have stayed together and been donated to a museum.

    Hundreds of items from the estate of late fashion icon André Leon Talley, including paintings, personal photographs and some of his signature capes, have sold at auction for a combined $3.55 million

    Nearly three quarters of all mental health admissions in Zimbabwe are due to substance use.

    The BBC’s Carolyne Kiambo brings us the story of a mother’s quest to liberate her son from the shackles of a drug that is straining Zimbabwe’s health care system.

    Mass shootings in Texas have left hundreds dead and wounded. Rather than pass bills limiting access to guns, state leaders opted to ease restrictions on publicly carrying firearms while making it harder for local govts to regulate them.

    Wegmans is now accepting EBT SNAP payments for online grocery orders through its website and app.

    Wegmans customers will be able to find SNAP-eligible items by using a filter while shopping online.

    This horrific story about what is going on in Jackson, Mississippi, is not getting media coverage.

    I only heard of it because of I follow Sherrilyn Ifill on Twitter.

    This is outrageous.

    • Liza says:

      Excellent post, Rikyrah.

      • rikyrah says:

        Thanks, Liza.

        It’s so absolutely outrageous. It just fills me full of rage.
        There’s a reason why when my last close relative passed away that I vowed not to ever step foot in the State of Mississippi again.
        I’ve kept that vow.
