Whatever you call it, Coronavirus, the Wuhan Coronavirus, Coronavirus disease 2019, or the official designation "COVID-19", everyone is in a panic over this "novel" (aka "new") virus. And panic is not a good thing. Panic leads to stupidity, like buying several years' worth of toilet paper and hand sanitizer and not leaving any for your … Continue reading Novel Coronavirus COVID-19
That's a well-used line, usually uttered when the hero rides off to almost certain death over the objections of his companions. Used frequently in war movies, Han Solo delivered it as he rode off into the blizzard on his Tauntaun... I'm using it in a slightly different context. I'm extremely frustrated with our current situation. … Continue reading I’ll see you in Hell…
Didn't I call it? Didn't I know how it was going to fall out? Every step of the way, I called the next dozen steps, and every time I was right. Since 2016, I called it... On a party-line vote - with one notable exception, which I didn't foresee - the impeachment process ended with … Continue reading I called it.
OK. The State Of The Union (SOTU) speech was last night (as I write this). One of President Trump's better speeches, actually, showing that if he sticks to the script, he can be an effective speaker. There were moments during that speech where I could actually see myself voting for him... And then he'd say … Continue reading State of The Union
I was waiting for today to see if my predictions were accurate. So far, the Circus hasn't disappointed. They've performed exactly as I knew they would. And they will continue to perform as I knew they would, just like any other trained monkeys. Which makes this post difficult to write, to be honest. What's the … Continue reading Is it over, yet?
I've been watching the circus. You know, the one currently being held over in Washington DC. The one that's been dominating our news cycle for weeks. If nothing else, what I've seen has convinced me of one thing: I don't like the circus. You might not know this, but I have a legal background. I … Continue reading …And In The Center Ring…
Back in March, some neanderthal shot up a couple of mosques in Christchurch, NZ, and I wrote a short post about it (here). A few days ago, a 16 year old kid killed two of his classmates, wounded two more, before shooting himself in the head; he later died. It was his birthday. I don't … Continue reading Santa Clarita, CA
We're the United States of America. We're not the United States of Europe. Or the United States of Scandinavia. Or the United States of Australia. Or Asia. Or India... We are unique. We were founded on unique principles and by a unique brand of people. Our ancestors may come from other parts of the world, … Continue reading We’re the United States of America
You've probably figured out by now that I support the Constitution of the United States. I support it all, in fact, even the parts I find inconvenient, which is apparently something of a novelty. Certainly many of our elected representatives, the people who have actually taken an oath to protect and defend the whole thing, … Continue reading Mao ZeO’Rourke
The mind boggles. On Tuesday, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously declared the National Rifle Association (NRA) a domestic terrorist organization. While a symbolic act, they are urging other governmental entities to do the same. Apparently, support of the US Constitution (the 2nd Amendment in particular) is enough to brand you a terrorist in … Continue reading Apparently, I’m a Terrorist.
