The 'we're saying it out loud' edition of The Month in Review

We’ve reached the final day of June. Can you believe this year is halfway over? I swear it was January a few days ago, right? Anyway, it’s that time again to look at the absurdities that occurred over the sixth month of the year.

June was dominated by news about abortion and gun rights. It’s 2022 in America; what else would you expect? When you deal with such volatile issues as these, you can expect people to have a wide range of opinions. Some are sane, normal and rational. Others are so far out there and strange that you can’t believe they came out of someone’s mouth.

It used to be people on the fringe would keep their ideas to themselves. It was better for them that way. It helped them fit into regular society. But, welcome to 2022 where apparently anything goes.

And in June 2022, they kicked it up more than a notch. So let’s take a peek at the crap people in the news felt they needed to say to the world. Here’s the We’re Saying It Out Loud edition of The Month in Review:

We start in Chicago where our embattled Mayor, Lori Lightfoot, is running for re-election. Challengers are coming out of the woodwork because they know she’s vulnerable. They’re all male. Big surprise, right? Lori’s reaction, “Another day, another man who thinks he can do the job better than me.” Hey Lori, it’s not only men who think that. It’s everybody. Maybe Rahm will come back and run again? Hmmm…Lori vs Rahm? Who ya got…and death or leaving the city is not an option. Oh yeah, Lori’s not done. More from her later.

Arizona is well-known for its radical conservatism. I know it’s hard to believe but it’s become much worse in the almost sixty years since Barry Goldwater. Hell, Goldwater would be a RINO today.

Blake Masters is a Republican running for the U.S. Senate. He was asked about mass shootings in America. His response was, “It’s Black people, frankly.” I guess no one will ever call Blake a RINO.

Ron Johnson is the current Senator from Wisconsin. He’s best known for his trip to Moscow on the 4th of July. Truly an American patriot! Ron is up for re-election this November. Usually, politicians in that position try to stay out of any type of controversy. Not Ron. Not in 2022.

When he was asked about waiting periods in the new gun safety bill he replied, “Before we pass anything new. let’s enforce the laws we have. Let’s start with Hunter Biden.” Can you guess how Ronnie voted on the gun safety bill that became law this month?

Mary Miller is a first-term congressperson representing southeast Illinois. She’s all in on the Maga movement and the stolen election. Early in her term, she let us know that Hitler had a good idea when it came to the youth. When it comes to guns and abortion, you know Mary would have to let us know what she thinks.

After the shooting in Texas, Mary got on the mental health, not guns bandwagon. She let us know the real reason it happened, “We have a mental health problem because the Democrats took God out of school.”

As if that wasn’t enough, Mary chimed in about the Supreme Court decision on Roe V Wade. At a Saturday night rally where she was endorsed for re-election by the former twice-indicted president, Mary thanked him, “President Trump, on behalf of all the MAGA patriots in America, I want to thank you for the historic victory for WHITE LIFE in the Supreme Court yesterday,”

Naturally, her campaign tried to walk it back, but it’s hard to get much sympathy when you already have a reputation as a Hitler supporter.

Remember Sarah Sanders? She is best known for being the press secretary to president number forty-five. It’s hard to forget someone who lied to the press and the public on a daily basis. Sarah is now running for Governor of Arkansas. Naturally, she has her own views on guns and abortions. Naturally, she was able to combine them into one sentence, “Kids in Arkansas will be as safe in the womb as they are in school.”

You’d think that would be enough for one month, right? Oh yeah, Lori Lightfoot decided to put an exclamation point on the month with her comment at the Pride Parade about the Supreme Court, “Fuck Clarence Thomas!

The funny thing is how so many of her opponents were outraged by her language. I’m far from Lori’s biggest fan. I most likely will vote for anyone besides her. But, in this case, I’m in total solidarity with her. Say it loud! Say it proud; “FUCK CLARENCE THOMAS!!”

That’s it for June. Quite the month. I can’t wait to see what July brings. See you then,

    Every five years or so I decide to update this section. I can't believe I've been doing this for close to ten years. The last time I did this I was close to sixty years old. Now I'm just a few months away from the big 7-ZERO. Scary AF!!! I'm pretty sure I won't be doing an update when I hit 80, but you never know. But until then, lets just be grateful.
