The Monday Memo

Quote for the Day:

You never need to apologize for how you chose to survive. ― Clementine von Radics

Today’s independent commentary deals with these people/issues:

  • Bullock’s First TV Ad
  • Graham Loves Biden
  • Ignorance
  • One More Thing


Montana Governor Steve Bullock (D) launched his first TV ad this weekend. Bullock is running for U.S. Senate against first-term Republican Senator Steve Daines.

In the 30-second ad, Bullock talks about not answering to party bosses. He says that as governor he worked to do “what is right for all Montanans” and “not just one party or point of view.” He contends he “won’t take a dime from corporate PACS.”

This is a good middle of the road ad for Bullock. People are tired of the partisanship and it appears Bullock knows this. He does not attack anyone in the ad.

You can watch the ad HERE.


There’s a new ad from Republican Voters Against Trump that features U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) talking about Donald Trump (R) and Joe Biden (D).

Before Graham sold his soul to Trump or Trump found out something about Graham to bring him to his side, Graham said Trump is a “race-baiting xenophobic, religious bigot.” Graham asks, “Do you know how to make American great again? Tell Donald Trump to go to hell.”

Then the ad shows Graham saying nice things about Joe Biden saying, “If you can’t admire Joe Biden as a person, then you got a problem.” He goes on to add that Biden is “as good a man as God ever created” and that Biden “is the nicest person I think I’ve ever met in politics.”

It’s a hard-hitting ad. Watch it HERE.


Faithful Readers: There are people amongst us who believe the coronavirus is a plot to beat Trump. I can’t confirm this, but I would bet that many of the same people believe Barack Obama is a Muslim, he was born in Kenya and believed “Pizzagate” was true.

The following post is one I copied from a friend’s Facebook page who probably believes all the above. People who post stuff like this are a few fries short of a Happy Meal. That’s a nice way of calling them idiots. Enjoy…

Create a VIRUS to scare people. Place them in quarantine. Count the number of dead every second of every day in every news headline. Close all businesses. 40,000,000 out of jobs. Peak unemployment. Remove entertainment: parks, gyms, bars, restaurants, sports. No dating. No touching. Mask people. Dehumanize them. Close temples and churches. Create a vacuum. Let depression and anxiety and desperation set in.

THEN… ignite hatred and civil war. Civil unrest. Empty the prisons because of the virus and fill the streets with criminals. Send in Antifa to vandalize property as if they are freedom fighters. Undermine the law. Loot. Attack law enforcement, but tell government to order a stand-down. We are all being baited by adversarial governments who want to destroy America – China, Iran, Russia. And, in an election year, have Democrats blame all of it on the President.

Can’t take America in a war, destroy it from within.

We are being conditioned, manipulated, and programmed by multiple agendas as never before…..time to DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH and MAKE UP OUR OWN MINDS rather than eating everything being spoon-fed to us! SOCIAL MEDIA is going to kill us! ALL MEDIA will do us in!

Agreed! So I copied and pasted.

People posting fake information is hurting us. The fools who post this shit should lose their internet privilege for a few months.

Agree or disagree – Leave a comment below or send me an email. I will respond.


I saw the following post on “The Other 98%” Facebook page and it touched me deeply, so I wanted to share it with my readers:

If someone kidnapped your child and sold them, where would you want us to put the statue of that person?

  1. Hey Doug, this old Hippie (who had a job) would like to know ; is Graham the falsebook goober ?
    A goober is a peanut to me 🙂

    • No, goober refers to the guy with the (CT) conspiracy theory rant about the virus etc.

  2. Graham has a very strong Democratic challenger and he is scared to death so he has to do a “butch me up” ad to look tough to South Carolinans. He lost his tough Daddy when McCain died and Trump is his new Daddy. Donald gave him a hall pass.

    Now you know why rightwingnuts have been de-funding public education for so long and siphoning off tax dollars to religious and for-profit education grifters. If you keep your voters stupid and gullible and they raise stupid, gullible new voters, they’ll believe anything. Of course, they already buy in hard to the non-existent old hippie in the sky stuff that they’ve been indoctrinated to believe has more reality than actual science. Then you get crap like that Falsebook goober is spewing.

  3. facts and evidence, attribution, open public courts where adversaries present evidence to a jury of our peers presided over by an impartial (so far as that is humanly possible) judge. A result that is open to review by higher courts. This is middle school civics. Name-calling does not advance the argument. “Assertions made without evidence can be dismissed without evidence”
    More on the founding hypocritical slave owners and the racist portions of our constitution later.
    The question of secession has never been answered unless you think war is the answer.
