Happy anniversary, Mrs. Waldman, wherever and whomever you are! It’s the “Silver”, so David Waldman ponied up for the traditional 24 pack of diet cola, which if you listen closely is already being enjoyed!

Critical Race Theory! Those are today’s scariest three words for three reasons, as just its name reminds White people of, gulp, ”race”... of frightening “theories” such as “evolution” and “gravity”... and worst of all, of “criticism”, which they will not ever, ever abide. As a bonus, it melds the two greatest threats their school children will face, Black people and Commies, into the curricular equivalent of “Black Lives Matter”. 

Fox News knows what to do with frightened White people — make money. But in this modern world, grifting cash is available for anyone willing to milk fear, so the CRT goldrush is on, with some slip-gibbets setting aside decades of jive to pick up their latest “scam in a box” before the best spots on the “America is a hellhole” MLM pyramid are taken. Here’s the inspirational story of Intolerance Sales Rep of the Month, Lorie (Cole) Waters.

Joan McCarter calls in with the story of local fear franchisee Janice McGeachin, in Idaho rooting out Marxism, Communism, Socialism, and Uppity Blacks. McGeachin can’t exactly define Critical Race Theory, but she knows it when she sees it… or will once Idaho cuts enough money from education budgets and hands it to her.

Let’s see, what else is happening? House Democrats have proposed $1.5 trillion spending ceiling, as a compromise to reach across the isle. Republicans propose the same idea, in order to get what they want and screw Democrats. Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are under pressure to pick one of those plans quickly, before time runs out. Mitch McConnell is set to destroy democracy several ways, with or without Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s help. (They are probably going to help.)

Steve KG Bannon wants to lock Merrick Garland up for trying to protect voting. Donald Trump wanted to lock Jeffery Rosen up for trying to protect voting. Sure, Dana Rohrabacher posed in pictures on the wrong side of police barricades on January 6, but he didn’t go into the Capitol. After all, he already spread feces there before.
