One Helluva Message

 

Yesterday, my need to turn in my absentee ballot and post a utility bill payment required my reluctantly emerging from my pandemic cocoon, revving up my 21-year-old vehicle and tooling around town.

Under normal circumstances, on such a balmy, bright, midsummer afternoon, I would’ve found myself happily hoofing it to City Hall and the P.O., but…

Ever since science denier Donny allowed Corona-V to go on its sickening, deadly rampage, I’ve been witnessing this dramatic upsurge in pedestrian traffic… unmasked traffic. True, “they” claim the Trumpian Flu’s out-of-doors transmission is rare, but…

Seeing how “they” may not always be telling us the truth… in part… because nobody yet knows Corona’s whole truth… in part… because my homeland’s “leader” is utterly incapable of ever telling the truth…

This means the weight of pandemic management now rests squarely on each individual’s shoulders. Since I now own THAT, it means I make the damned rules!

And my Rule #1 is to hope for the best, yet, plan for the worst. If that necessitates driving when I’d much rather be walking, so be it.

It might interest Delinquent Donny to know that the more he dumps his non-delegatable work on us, the more we realize, WE DO NOT NEED HIM AT ALL!

For someone, who’s lusting so ferociously for reelection, that’s one helluva crazy message to be conveying to the electorate!

 

Stay Safe at Home! Stay Publicly Masked! Stay Healthy!

 

 

 

 

The Court of Public Opinion Won’t Get‘er Done

 

While former Senator/VP and present-day POTUS wannabe Joe Biden has been stumping up and down the pandemic-redefined virtual campaign trail, it’s a sure bet he’s been feeling distracted by the following matter…

“Tara Reade, a former junior staffer in Joe Biden’s Senate office, has accused the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee of sexually assaulting her in 1993, when she was working as a staff assistant. The Biden campaign denies the accusation and says the alleged incident ‘absolutely did not happen.’” [read more here]

For the Record…

• I deem women to be virtually 100% credible whenever they out a male predator.
• There’s no room for hypocrisy in how society views the accused and/or convicted.
• I’ve blogged against similarly accused Republicans Donald J. Trump and Brett Kavanaugh.
• I’m not about to grant a free-pass to Biden, just because he’s a fellow Democrat.
• Unwelcome touching has gotten him into trouble, before, and this does not help Joe’s case.

The Realities…

• The court of public opinion is never the proper venue for reaching a verdict.
• An arcane congressional hearing would not work, either, due to intense partisanship.
• Only the traditional courtroom’s public jury trial will offer the required transparency.
• The court of law can best protect Joe’s “innocent until proven guilty” / 6th Amendment rights.

The Sixth Amendment: “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.”

Complicating Factors…

• No trial can expect to see the light of day while enshrouded by a rampaging pandemic’s pall.
• As with Trump and Kavanaugh’s accusers, Reade’s case is a decades old “he said / she said”.
• Would those testifying on Reade’s behalf, appear credible or forgetful on the witness stand?

Problem…

• Election Day 2020, a scant six months off, provides insufficient time to clear or convict Biden.
• Democrats cannot expect a distracted Biden to effectively debate and defeat Donald J. Trump.

Solution…

• America needs a role model president, who parents can tell their kiddies to emulate.
• Since CSC, typically, is male gender specific, Democrats must nominate a female.
• 2020 ex-candidates Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar are fully qualified.

Let’s compare / contrast two vastly differing ideologies and temperaments.
Exhibit A: The robe and sandals garbed, long bearded saint who frequents
the Round Freeway Off Ramps. Exhibit B: The dressed to the nines, clean
shaven sinner who frequents the Oval Office. Who’d be a better president?
