BUDWEISER WAGON: [10:41] – This will be easier to watch if you know ahead of time that the downed horse in the video is fine now and back to work. The professionalism of everyone involved, from the Bud team to the rodeo announcer to the audience, really moved me.

Watch the shotgun rider right from the beginning. The instant something went wrong, he was on the ground and running right into the middle. These horses weight between 1,800 and 2,300 pounds! Also, keep your eye on the woman in the middle who takes her jacket off and wraps it around the downed horse’s eyes to calm him. She stays at his head throughout the ordeal.

One comment on the video says, “I live in St. Louis and have visited the farm where the horses are kept many times. This announcer was correct. The crew that looks after these horses are so dedicated and devoted to their welfare.” And kudos to the little dog on the wagon who stayed where he was supposed to stay, up and out of the way.

CALIFORNICATION: The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office has suspended one of its attorneys for “misgendering” and “deadnaming” a convicted child molester who is now accused of beating a man to death with a rock. The attorney had previously expressed concerns about Tubbs’ alleged gender transition.

In 2014, he was arrested and pleaded guilty to attacking a 10-year-old girl in a Denny’s bathroom stall. Because he had been under 18 at the time of the crime, they sought to get the now-adult molester of young girls sentenced to a juvenile facilities. And, of course, by “identifying” as a female, that would place him with his prey of choice.

The attorney says Tubbs got him fired “in retaliation” for outing his fakery in an attempt to keep him out of the female juvie facility. “I have recordings of him making up the name, gaming the system, joking about it and the date that it was made up. And I had reports where he’s referring to himself as a ‘grown ass man.’

Last year, Fox News Digital obtained explicit jailhouse recordings of Tubbs admitting it was wrong to attack a little girl but gloating over the light punishment. His victim said the light sentence he received denied her any sense of justice.

CATHOLIC: CLICK [12:52] to hear an episode of The Stew Peters Show about the corruption in the RCC. I have long suspected Francis is not only gay, but also has a history of engaging in sinful behaviors about which he is deeply conflicted. He’s written a book about how Judas might be in Heaven, something the exorcists report is definitely false. Judas apparently shows up at exorcisms, because, being human, he isn’t subject to the same rules the demons are, so the priests can’t just order him to leave.

LENT: Lent has three fundamental practices: prayer, penance, and almsgiving. Each of these represents a distinct type of behavior, going up to God, going into ourselves, and going out to others.

POLINATION: Thank you to every one who has ever visited our little garden. We thank God for you!

WASHINGTON: Somebody tweeted, “Parents – check your school districts’ policy regarding keeping info about YOUR child secret from you. There are some scary policies out there. Schools should not have a right to keep info about your child from you unless abuse by you is suspected.” One of the teachers responded, “I cannot disagree with this more. So many students are not safe in this nation from their Christo-fascist parents. And our guidelines and laws haven’t caught up with this.

GRAMMY NOTES: I figured out I had to clean up my mouth when my eldest was a toddler. She stubbed her toe and said, “Oh shhhhhh … what’s that word you say, Mommy?


CLICK for some fun.
