Amazing

This podcast has become one of my very favorites. It’s like if your best friends happened to be top legal experts and they’re over at your house drinking coffee with you. I always feel more informed AND more calm after listening. Have recommended it to everyone I know!

So tired

This is the third pod I’ve tried to listen to today and the third time I’ve given up in disgust at the oh so righteous white folks condemning the black lady. Gag! I’m a white woman in my 70s and I’m sick of it. Molly should know better — an apology is needed!

Ep. 58

The answer of "what to do":
Treat donald exactly the same as a poor othered race that would be charged with the same exact crimes: jail time and contempt of court(more jail time) and No, getting honest media coverage is not proving anything other than he is a liar and a danger to society. His lies are irrelevant. A rose is still a rose whatever name you call it. Crimes are crimes. Assault is assault and fraud is fraud and so on..
