Countdown.

Hard to believe, but if COVID-19 hadn’t happened, we’d still be about a week away from first game – June 4- of the NBA finals.

Meanwhile, 156 days until November 3, the Presidential Election.  Remember those days as a kid when you wished you could open advent calendar windows early to get to Christmas sooner?  Yeah, it’s like that.

 

I’m so old I remember when the only story on the news was the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’re still in a COVID-19 pandemic. Even if police don’t shoot anyone, can’t help but watching these protest crowds and thinking sadly that people are going to die from them.

 

Anyone but me trying to imagine what these protests and riots would be like if we still had a President

Missing Obama.

Meanwhile the same POTUS who claims he knows everything about everything claims he didn’t know the racist origins of the phrase “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.” The correct response to that might get me kicked off social media.

Can’t help but think that Trump is absolutely livid over the death of George Floyd. Mostly because he can’t blame it on China.

Trump tweeted “The National Guard has been released in Minneapolis to do the job that the Democrat Mayor couldn’t do. Should have been used 2 days ago & there would not have been damage. Police Headquarters would not have been taken over & ruined.”
More like, if we elected a President 3 1/2 years ago there would not have been riots.. Our democracy would not have been taken over and ruined.

SCOTUS voted 5-4 to allow Gov. Gavin Newsom to keep restrictions against allowing churches to open. Judge Roberts said “choosing when to lift restrictions during a pandemic is the business of elected officials, not unelected judges.” Trump attacks on Judge Roberts in 3.2.1…

Clerk called cops on George Floyd for allegedly paying with a counterfeit $20 bill. Most of us white folks could try to pay with $3 dollar bills and clerk might only wonder what drawer in which to put them.

Remember all those mostly funny “We survived Clinton you’ll survive Bush,” and then “We survived Bush you’ll survive Obama” t-shirts and memes? Sadly, not so sure the current GOP version “We survived Obama you’ll survive Trump” is actually working…
