  1. I’m reading “neither stunning nor brave” by Michael Loftus. It’s a delightful commentary on absolutely everything in the US right now. What definitely is stunning is how Loftus manages to achieve this in novel form with humor. Amazon has it so have yourself some fun and order it! No, I don’t know Michael Loftus (other than from Gutfeld!) but wish I did. We share a sense of humor and search for the absurd. Loftus finds it.

  2. I wish I could have a conversation with MLoftus too. Intelligence, wisdom, honesty, gentleness, lovingkindness, integrity, and straight-shooting come through always in his commentary on Gutfeld. Am about to order the book…but not from Amazon! Good grief!

    Am boycotting all 107 companies that signed that ridiculous letter opposing the Georgia election reform law — please people, read that law! The only votes that law will suppress are those of dead people, non-US citizens, and those who vote more than once. Have an actual conversation with a person who struggles economically. How do you think they get food stamps? Housing help? Childcare help? With their state IDs! Illegal voting hurts the poor the most. Please read that law and support fair and honest voting laws.
