Do you know who Marjorie Taylor Greene is? We have true nutcases elected to public office in the United States. Please read this.

So you think the United States is a good example of Democracy? Maybe it was at one time, but I wonder if it is now. I'm thinking of moving to Europe somewhere. Perhaps France, as I speak a tiny bit of French. We had a "President" who tried to overturn Democracy. We have people in pubic (sic) office who are crazier than loons. I know that Democracy has prevailed so far and that Vegas probably has odds on whether said former "President" will do time. I attach this link as a public service. Do you have "politicians" like this where you live?
Marjorie Taylor Greene suggests Southerners could 'welcome' Biden's 'police state friends' with guns
"We all love our Second Amendment rights," she said, adding, "They might not like the welcome they get.”

Now the loons are coming out from the rocks under which they were hiding, Sounds like soon it will be time for a Democratic Mad Hatter's Tea Party as some lunatic lady screams "Off with her head!" But seriously though I wonder how far how very far all this will really go.

Understood. I was having a similar thought this morning when someone on another "blog" mentioned the possibility of a Trump statue somewhere. Of course it would be funded by Trump, perhaps from prison. I am NOT for the removal of statues, including those of Robert E. Lee (fought for the South), Martin Luther King (may have inadequately referenced certain passages in his dissertation) and Thomas Jefferson (held slaves). All of the above are a part of our history. And all were good men in their own ways. But if a statue of Donald Trump ever came to be, I would be among those tearing it down.

Reading the bio of this idiot I am not surprised she is from Georgia ... nor neck deep in insane conspiracy theories. That she was elected in 2020 proves how stupid those people are... of course, the election, coming before the Jan 6th insurrection will prove ... 1. If she is not re elected than the Reps in Georgia did not support the Insurrection 2. If she is re elected then the the Reps in Georgia are as stupid and violent as we think.
@TheHorse The cultural gap, the habits. Visiting a place for a few days is one matter, going to live in a place is different. I could not live in some European countries even if I love the place and the food. Spain is an example, wonderful, great food, but la mañana por la mañana attitude (always procrastinate) and the Italian style bureaucracy is something I cannot stand. France was a perfect country, no nosy people, they do not care what you do for a living, if you go to the Sunday Mass, if you pray or believe... they like to see people well dressed, this was something I appreciated.
@TheHorse It depends where you want to live in France. Shorts and t-shirt in Paris is only fine for American tourists, not if you become a "local". If you move to a location by the sea, it is more common to be in shorts during the day, but no one would go out in the evening wearing shorts, no hat on the head all the time either. I think you should revise your way to dress in Europe.

@TheHorse Intelligent people can deal with the lockdown without emotional confusion. Idiots can't because they have to keep to their 'pattern' so if every day at 6 pm they go to the Pizza shop if they can't go, as any mental defective, they melt down

@TheHorse She's been asked several times. At first she said people asking her that are in violation of her HIPPA rights... But after being told that's not true, she says it's a violation of her personal rights to ask her that. I'm willing to bet she has been vaccinated but urges everyone else not to get vaccinated. (That seems to be the way the new Republicans respond to the pandemic. Get vaccinated themselves, but convince the rest of the peon Republican party not to accept vaccination.)

Bonjour! I don't know what Vegas is saying---I hardly ever get there more than twice a month or so nowadays---but one online gambling site is giving him even odds for going to jail: Donald Trump Yes (-120) No (-120) Ah! We’ve reached the main event. Donald Trump’s shady business dealing have been under the microscope ever since he rose to political prominence a handful of years ago. Had he not successfully run for president, it’s worth wondering whether law enforcement would care enough to dig deeper into Trump’s history of potential wrongdoing. Whatever the case, he could be in some hot water now. Earlier this week, CNN reported that New York Attorney General Letitia James is helping to investigate the Trump Organization as a part of a criminal probe. The news came after we already knew the AG was investigating the Trump Org for potential civil violations. The fact that this is now a criminal matter doesn’t bode well for the ex-president.
Democracy and freedom have been abused in countries like India. Without rule of law, they are free for all. I can recall the former Chinese leader, Deng Xiaoping, wondering aloud: "The United States brags about its political system, but the President says one thing during the election, something else when he takes office, something else at midterm, and something else when he leaves." I don't think any other country can afford your type of political system. Maybe, you can move up north and your bit of French can come in handy too.
