Democrats and Republicans have disagreed for the better part of the year over when speech becomes dangerous, and on Wednesday, House Democrats said Gosar’s latest move – an anime video depicting him killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and attacking President Joe Biden – had gone too far.
“Depictions of violence can foment actual violence and jeopardize the safety of elected officials, as witnessed in this chamber on January 6, 2021,” Democrats wrote in their censure.
The House passed the motion 223-207, with the vote falling largely along party lines. Two Republicans joined Democrats in supporting it.
Gosar was defiant, as he had been earlier this year regarding his actions leading up to Jan. 6. Referring to the anti-immigration theme of the anime video, the congressman said there was “no threat” in it other than “the threat that immigration poses to our country.”

And Then There Were Four
Over a year ago, I got out of bed, went to the kitchen for my morning cup of coffee and then I went to the back porch to see if I had any visitors. I have foxes, possums, cats, and raccoons (who are politically correct and wear masks when they come). I put food out for them, and they help themselves. Every morning the food dishes are empty and waiting to be filled. It’s great at night to look out and see some of these critters coming in for their evening snack. This morning, as I looked out, I saw a little kitty on the porch. I had no idea where this little kitty came from or how it got to our back porch. I opened the door, stepped out, and the little kitty ran and hid. She thought she was hiding, but I could see exactly where she was So I left her alone and went and got some food for her. I put it in the dish and stood there waiting for her to come over, instead, she sat there, looked at me, then looked at the dish and then looked back at me.The Effects of Air Pollution on Human Health
