Loosely Speaking

It comes down to a matter of personal choice.

Governors threaten holding back funding for counties or cities that make masking mandatory. Social distancing signs are removed from venues before a trump appearance. Businesses open where masks and distancing isn't gonna happen. Authorities angle to open schools as if there is no pandemic. No one... Sign in to see full entry.

Oh, all right...

Well, it turns out it was too problematic to delete this blog without losing the parts of it I deem worth saving. So I might as well keep on using it, and the other I thought to quit. So here I am again, separating my homely journal from my social/political rants, opinions, and perspectives. I've... Sign in to see full entry.

The cleansing storm

Change comes slowly, sometimes takes a couple of generations for a society to let go of an old and obsolete tradition. It takes time to get it that what was once a solution has become a problem. The stream of time flows placidly because we like it that way, undisturbed and undisturbing. But... Sign in to see full entry.

Nature's idea of justice is natural selection.

So the delusionary in the White House is willing to go with that. Which makes him pretty much a throw-back to his not yet human ancestors. The Rich Come First is the lowest kind of humanity. It is short-sighted, inward-looking, childish. "Good" is about "Good For Me Right Now." Truth and Reality are... Sign in to see full entry.

Speaking of hoarding...

Yesterday I saw someone at the grocery store with a whole big cartload of cabbages. They left none behind in the veg section. None. But they missed the ones in the up-front display of corned beef and Irish sausages. I got two of those. Just in case. You never know. I like green cabbage. And it keeps... Sign in to see full entry.

Presidential qualities

I don't need the nicest person, I want the most able to stop the bleeding and mend the wounds in our domestic and international relationships. But I also don't want the Oval Office held hostage to someone's temper. There have been enough tantrums. I don't want a revolution in all our systems, I want... Sign in to see full entry.

The Media don't seem to want you to know who Elizabeth Warren is.

I posted this on Facebook this morning when a simple query about why NPR is freezing out Warren, never speaking of her. I got a lot of immediate knee-jerk responses that offered nothing but uninformed prejudice. Is it misogyny? Is it something she said? Why is anyone but the corrupt afraid of her? A...

Less worried about Bloomberg today

...after his poor showing in the debate--the only one I've actually watched. All his masterfully slick ads could not disguise that he has little to offer as a candidate, and a whole lot of history of more-Republican-than-Democrat decisions and values behind him. I can think of lots of better ways to... Sign in to see full entry.

Watching the train wreck.

It's one thing to watch the train hurtle to disaster from a safe vantage. It's another to see it unfolding from inside the train, behaving as if we have no power to take it back from the criminals and maniacs who have taken over the controls. The important question is: What are we going to do about... Sign in to see full entry.

The political nightmare continues here in the US... Well, every great nation has had its mad kings, its reprehensible emperors, and more of them than the wise and good. The Founders did their utmost to secure the US from such things, but they could not imagine some of the events leading to this... Sign in to see full entry.
