CRT and Replacement Theory, et al

Will somebody please tell me why in the world of GOP politics, it is ok to talk about “Replacement Theory,” but it is not allowed to mention “CRT” (Critical Race Theory)? These double standards blow my mind. Over and over, we are supposed to accept this double talk/double standards.

Now, I see Republicans are blaming the mass shooter tragedies on Rap music and video games. I think folks in other countries have access to Rap music and video games. What folks in other countries don’t have is access to AR 15 assault rifles and hundreds of rounds of ammo.

I get so frustrated when these polticians think the world around them is all stupid and cannot see through this horseshit, yes, horseshit. The idiot (now, I am name calling and just deserved), Mo Brooks, (U.S. Rep. from Alabama) said, “…people will need their assault rifles for when they take back the government…” Isn’t that what they just tried on January 6th, 2021? And, Mo Brooks was part of the group in Congress that organized and incited the milita boys on January 6th. Mr. Brooks, you cannot come much closer to an admission of guilt than you have now. So, Mo Brooks, are you trying to tell us next time you and the militia boys will be coming armed with your AR 15s?

I am a Vermonter, been one all my life. That just about tells you all you need to know. I am not much of a follower and like to do my own thinking. I value my family and a quiet existence in a very rural part of Vermont. There is a lot in the world I do not understand. My writing is my attempt to wrap my head around much that is swirling around me. Some time ago gasoline pumps changed to the way they look now. I had stopped to fill my Jeep and I could not get the gas to pump to save my life. I went inside and complained to the attendant. She knew me and said, "Ed, the whole world is changing and if you don't figure out the changes you are going to fall off the earth as it spins around." Well, I am not always successful figuring out the changes, but my writing is my way of working through some of them. I hope you enjoy.
