The Danger Grows: Justice Ginsburg’s Death, McConnell’s Treachery and Trump’s Opportunity to Use the Supreme Court to Steal the Election

Hello Padre Steve. Well written post. We really are past the crossroads right now, and we must understand why if we are to stand a chance to reverse back to it. This has not been a short time thing but a long time brewing in our country, fermented by people whose agenda is for their own purposes and not the public good. Best wishes. Hugs

Friends of Padre Steve’s World,

Tonight I am re-posting an edited older article that I think is even more pertinent than it was when I first wrote it, maybe more so now.  Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg yesterday and Senator Mitch McConnell announced plans to hold immediate confirmation hearings on her replacement by whoever President nominates just 45 days from the election. Four years ago he denied President Obama’s nominee, Merrick Gerland a confirmation hearing over nine months before the election. Then he said that it was too close to the election and the “American people” should get  the choice of electing a new President before confirming a new Supreme Court Justice. The hypocrisy is appalling, but I have come to expect it from the Republican Senator from Kentucky.

If McConnell pushes forward and Trump’s nominee is confirmed it will give Trump a 6-3 majority on the court that…

    There always seems to be only one important point of view when speaking of our non prez. His and the rest of the Universe, with only his counting. Naturally he and Twitchy Mitchy would want a speedy appointment for Ruth Ginsberg, but hopefully there are still enough people with sane minds who will refuse to allow this. Let the lady have time to rest in peace before picking her bones clean. And stall any votes on this the way they are stalling the votes on help for all people in the country. And then get rid of all the career politicians looking for more votes to remain in their cushy jobs. Hugs! 😇💖

      Hello Angela. Your scenario calls for the Republicans in the Senate to both have honor, integrity, and the will to stand up to tRump and Moscow Mitch. Sadly these Republicans have not shown they have much of any of these traits. I am really worried. The only thing that might save us is if the big money donors, wealthy corporations step in to demand the Republicans keep the court more balanced.

      OT. Made two batches of chocolate and two batches of vanilla yesterday. Every since you shared with me the joy of home made ice cream we have made and eaten a ton of it. We have to find some single serve size containers. Every time we make these batches we use every small container we have then start filling the bigger ones. 😀😃😉 Thank you for sharing. Hugs

        Look for some of the small Rubbermaid containers Scottie. I have dozens now because I will eat until the container is empty. A four ounce container is much safer for me than an eight ounce or (shudder) a sixteen ounce one. I’m glad you are enjoying the ice cream. I have developed an unfortunate reaction to milk and am having to abstain until it goes away again. If it gets too difficult I’ll try almond milk as a substitute, but not sure how it will turn out, I might do that this week after my grocery trip later in the week just to see if I have to wait months for the lactose intolerance situation to correct itself again. Hugs!

          Angela, try lactose-free milk. It works for me. And didn’t take very long for me to level out.

          Hello Angela. Where any recipe calls for milk we use Lactate milk. We can not tell it from regular milk and it doesn’t cause Ron the problem that regular milk does. He doesn’t seem to have any problem with our homemade ice cream but he does with store bought ice cream. Hugs

            That’s interesting about the homemade vs. store-bought ice cream. I hadn’t thought of that and may be why I’ve been having some problems lately. I buy these “ice-cream bars” and have one every night after dinner. They’re Safeway-brand so they’re nor as heavily laden with sugars and such as the more expensive ones. However, they are made with regular milk. I wonder if they’re the culprit — even though I’ve been eating them for months … ??

            I would say I’d try your method (making my own, but I don’t have the energy or ambition. Maybe you could ship some my way? 😂😂🤣😄

              Hello Nan. I would love to. The thing about making ice cream is it is easy, not hard. There are two types of machines, ones that use ice and salt packed around the drum, and ones that don’t. We bought a smaller machine using ice just to try it ( plus it fit our colors in the kitchen.) We are going to upgrade to a larger machine that doesn’t use ice when we can do so. Even with the ice it is easier than making a homemade cake. You make either a home made mix or use one of the premixed ones, add your heavy cream and lactate milk, and let it churn for 30 minutes, occasionally scraping the sides of the drum. Then stir the churned mix good, put it into containers and freeze. We are doing the vanilla from scratch , which is 3 cups heavy cream, 2 & 1/4 half and half, 1 cup sugar, 1 Tbsp vanilla ( I get a bit heavy on the vanilla as we both like it stronger ) . For the chocolate we had a bunch of premix come with the machine. That uses 2 cups of lactate milk, 2 cups heavy cream. Like I said easier than most things I bake / make. Hugs

                Someone gave us an ice-cream maker many, many years ago … and we never used it. All it did was take up space in the pantry. When we moved, we finally decided to part with it and donated it to the local “junk” store. And that action ended any thoughts dedicated to making our own. 😛

                I have both types of makers, both electric so no problem with turning a crank. The gallon one uses ice which I make with my ice maker, and then there are three — yeah, three, small ones that just freeze the drum, pour in a pint of mixture, put the top on and freeze. Used to use Rennet tablets but they can’t be found around here now so using the ice cream mix and it’s so much easier. No crushing tablets and melting them before adding to the milk and cream mixture. Stir together, pour in the drum and let it freeze. The tablets took over an hour, the mix takes less than half that time. Hugs!

                  Hello Angela. I want to again thank you for pointing us to homemade ice cream. Not only do we love it but for some reason it doesn’t seem to bother our diabetes. Hugs

                    Mine either, unless of course I eat the whole gallon in a day, something I’m ashamed to say I’ve come close to doing before. Not the entire gallon but a large part of it. Hugs!

                      Hello Angela. One more question if you don’t mind? Ron and I like smaller containers, a single serving size. We had some salad dressing container size plastic containers but they were a bit too small. Have you found the right size containers? Hugs

                      I have some one cup size containers from Rubbermaid that are just right for me. I also have some 4 oz. ones that I use as well for when I’m just hungry for a bite or two or four. They are perfect for an after dinner amount of sweetness to top off the meal. I’ve had these for several years and like them for individual servings, but also sometimes fill a larger container to bring out when friends are here for ice cream socials. I haven’t used these this year because of the virus but they will still be here next year. I just hope the virus will not be here as well! Hugs.

            I probably have the same problems Ron has. Never have looked for lactate milk but that will be rectified next grocery trip. Thanks. Hugs!

            I got the lactate milk yesterday, made a gallon of ice cream and proceeded to eat a cup of it, NO PROBLEMS SO FAR. And delicious ice cream to enjoy again! Thank you so much for the tip. Also had some on my cereal this morning and again, no problem. Hugs.

              Hello Angela. Wonderful and grand. Your comment is why we have a wonderful community, we help each other, we look after each other. Ron and I have never enjoyed ice cream as much as we do the homemade stuff. Best wishes. Hugs

                And I’m enjoying milk again. This really is a great way to help each other in more ways than one.

                I sent my absentee ballot in today, so one vote has gone in AGAINST the Turd. Now just let them try to keep it from counting, And not sure if I ever mentioned it or blogged it but a couple of years ago in our state representative election my candidate was elected by one, count ’em, ONE vote — just in case anyone thinks their vote doesn’t matter or count. Hugs!
