Bag of Randomness for Monday, September 19, 2022

  • I don’t really do mantras, but if I did, “acceptance” was my mantra for the weekend. It’s also the answer to many of my problems.
  • Huh, “bookkeeper” has 3 double letters in a row.
  • I was wondering how crazy it would be for a Supreme Court Justice to run for president. Then, I wondered if something so crazy was even mentioned in the Constitution. Turns out, it’s happened once before. Charles Evans Hughes was an associate justice of the Supreme Court (1910–1916), and 44th U.S. Secretary of State (1921–1925), as well as the Republican nominee for President of the United States in the 1916 presidential election. He also served as the 11th Chief Justice of the United States from 1930 to 1941.
  • Kyler Murray had a phenomenal rushing touchdown yesterday, but there’s no way a QB scrambles that long without at least one of his lineman holding.
  • Dirty politics – A bus contractor hired by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to transport migrants to New York signed an agreement not talk to NY officials, complicating volunteer efforts to help
  • I usually try to avoid posting sensational political headlines, but this one came from a reputable paper, The Denver Post – Lauren Boebert is part of a dangerous religious movement that threatens democracy, experts say – “It’s time for us to position ourselves and rise up and take our place in Christ and influence this nation as we were called to do,” Boebert told a Woodland Park crowd in September
    • U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert’s pattern of pushing for a religious takeover of America, spreading falsehoods about the 2020 presidential election and warning of an impending judgment day amounts to Christian nationalism, religious, political and social experts say. Those ideals threaten the rights of non-Christian — and typically non-white — Americans but also endanger the foundation of the country’s democratic process, those experts say. The far-right Western Slope congresswoman represents a high-profile and incendiary voice in the movement, which is infiltrating virtually every level of American government and its judiciary.
