Running the numbers.

May 24, 2020

NHL considering a modified postseason where 24 of 31 teams make the playoffs.

And as a casual observer I wonder, this differentiates from standard operating procedure how?

Meanwhile today Eli Manning  joins Twitter, gets into some very white trash talk with Tom Brady.  And how much am I nostalgic for a world in which that was today’s biggest controversy on social media.

Random question.  If churches are essential what was the point of all those bedtime prayers we learned as children?

Chief Justice Roberts told his son’s high school graduating class that COVID-19 pandemic should teach “humility and compassion.” Now can he say the same to Trump?

Joe Biden said he was trying to be a “wise guy’ and apologized. Donald Trump still can’t admit the Spanish Flu pandemic was in 1918, not 1917.

 

Amazing how many people who defended the rights of businesses to choose not to make wedding cakes for gay couples, are furious when other businesses choose to tell customers to wear masks to save lives.

 

Jeff Sessions was the very first Senator to endorse Trump. Today in a tweet storm Donald attacks him and tells him to drop out of the Alabama Senate race. Again, reminder to Trump GOP loyality lapdogs in the Senate, there is no “immunity passport.” – #ETTD

Trump is demanding, even in COVID-19 hotspots, that churches must be allowed to reopen. Back in college, my studies focused on Tudor England, when your religion and how you prayed could get you killed. Kind of thought in USA we’d moved beyond that.

 

Not a joke, the President of the United States is accusing TV host of murder, & sending out Fundraising email headlined “HILLARY CLINTON  – Shouldn’t she be in jail?” Meanwhile Democrats obsess about our candidate making a stupid joke. Why we can’t have nice things.

Conventional wisdom: Biden said stupid thing, apologized, but needs to make up for it by picking VP of color. Dissenting opinion: Joe, always gaffe-prone, is 78. He won primary but reminded us his best VP is a younger version of himself. Yes, I DO think that’s Amy Klobuchar.

Just thinking, if you’re more upset by Joe Biden’s “you ain’t black” gaffe, than you are about White House using OANN plant to ask Kayleigh McEnany if Trump will pardon President Obama, you might want to rethink your priorities.

In all seriousness, one of the things I truly love about Joe Biden is the man’s ability to say “I made a mistake.”

There’s a man who KNOWS Joe Biden isn’t racist. There’s a man who I supported, still do, with all my heart and hope he speaks out now. That man is Barack Obama.
