Thoughts on Events the Week of July 26

Posted in Uncategorized by EloiSVM42 on August 18, 2021

August: Well, we’re here. This is the (latest) month when what’s his name, the disgraced former president is supposed to be reinstated. Hasn’t happened yet, but the month is young.

Seriously, it’s not going to happen, just like it hasn’t happened on any of the other dates predicted. I wonder how many times Judy is going to pull the reinstatement football away from the Charlie Brown base before it catches on.

Covid-19 Stupidity Index: I’m sick and tired of all these vaccine resistant bozos – the anti-vaxxers, the religious wingnuts, the moronically partisan Republican base, and especially the mouth breathing politicians – who are encouraging this kind of nonsense.

Cases are spiking again, but the good news is that almost all of the new cases and all of the deaths are occurring among the unvaccinated. If I were certain the virus would only kill these guys, I could almost say let them be like that, but they’re endangering others. (Only 40% of the residents of those eligible in my country are vaccinated.)

The guy I feel sorry for is President Biden. He got the vaccines distributed, and he has been begging everyone to get vaccinated, but refusal and resistance is causing another spike. The guy I feel least sorry for is Ron DeSantis, the truly knuckle dragging Governor of Florida, whose state is leading the Covid-19 surge and is the heir-apparent to WHN. It figures.

The Supremes: The Court of desperately in need of reform. As I’ve written before, the Court has become just another partisan branch of government, but it’s even worse than that. Six of the nine justices would feel philosophically comfortable in 1787 when our Constitution was originally written to give the vote only to adult white males. Women were excluded and blacks weren’t even considered fully human. That’s 274 years behind the times.

Worst state: Not to be outdone by his fellow Florida Governor, Texas Governor Abbott, a truly odious human being (sorry, Walter), not only won’t require, or even suggest wearing a mask, he’s forbidding local authorities from mandating masks in their communities and school. Has this pig part earned the cup for Texas this week, or what?
