What I want to do with this section is give readers my take on what happened during the previous week and the current day. Hopefully The Week will turn into the The Day or The Daily Take. But my daily routine, as well as energy level especially for someone who is not a coffee or Starbucks junkie , and doesn’t use illegal narcotics either, will determine how often I’m able to do this. I’m also going to do this from a lighter side. At least lighter compared with talking about, I don’t know Syria, or the latest gun tragedy that seems to only happen in America, tax reform to use as examples. But with how depressing American politics has become in the late eight years or so, speaking lighter than those issues shouldn’t be that difficult, unless you’re actually talking about those issues.
I’m wouldn’t even dare dream about trying to make light of the tragedy in Texas last Sunday. The current United States national debt of some twenty-trillion-dollars (which is also not a laughing matter, if you have to pay the interest on that) wouldn’t be enough money to pay me to make fun of that tragedy. Other than to make fun of the people who for whatever reasons perhaps are addicted to the internet and have no outside hobbies and lives outside of hard-core hyper-partisan extreme politics.
Hyper-partisans on the hateful Left, always use a situation like this to either say we need gun control, and the Far-Left (Socialists and Communists) will argue right away for why they believe we need to outlaw private gun ownership and the 2nd Amendment all together those NRA fanatics are stopping that.
And hyper-partisans on the Right will try to make their case for why they believe the 2nd Amendment is the only amendment to the U.S. Constitution that is absolute. Hyper-partisans on the Right, people who believe the 2nd Amendment is absolute, apparently aren’t that familiar with life. Because if you live a few years or more you know nothing in life is absolute. And they’l also use examples of how guns have saved innocent lives in the past. And somehow manage (perhaps intentionally) to forget about the latest victims from gun violence from a person or person who used their gun or guns to kill innocent people.
As far as Michael Flynn. The only reason you have to have to know that its not Amateur Night at the Apollo, (or Amateur Night at The Old Opry, for Southern Republicans) but the last two years of the Trump Organization has been Amateur Night. That Groundhog Day with a million screw up sin it that never seems to end. The Trump Campaign least year was rookie ball (for you baseball fans) bush league and that is what went into their administration.
President Trump’s Chief of Staff John Kelly, is a professional and at least seems to know what he’s doing. The Trump National Security Council, except for Mike Flynn, is very strong. But the rest of this crew look like Congressional interns who just got out of high school and not even college. And apparently woke up one day from one of their Red Bull comas after not sleeping for weeks and find themselves in the real world with real jobs and not having any real idea of how to do them. How does a nominee for National Security Director, not get vetted? Ask the Trump White House! Ask Vice President Mike Pence who has a lot of responsibility as far as putting the Trump Administration and cabinet together.
Roy Moore, what else can be said about a man who not only doesn’t believe the U.S. Constitution, let alone believe in it and doesn’t believe Separation of Church and State and the Right to Privacy, even exist, but apparently ex-Judge Moore doesn’t believe in the Bible either. Because he has a lot of crazy quotes about it that simply aren’t true. He believes homosexuality should be illegal which of course it isn’t., but he believes that it should be illegal because the Bible says so.
But if that is not bad enough Judge Moore comes from the fringe wing of Fundamentalist Evangelical Christianity that believes women are subservient to men and men can essentially have their way with women and girls. I don’t want to make fun of Alabama (at least no more than usual) but this fringe fundamentalist belief is common in the Bible Belt and they seem to believe that there’s nothing inappropriate with men getting off with girls. The legal age for consent in Alabama is 16 and not 18 where it tends to be in America. As much as the Christian-Right may claim to be against Islam and the Islamic Theocratic Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and see Islam as a cult, the Christian Right are experts on religious, as well as political cults. They’re the largest religious and political cult, at least in the West.
As far as Veterans Day. One of my favorite holidays, because without these great Americans I’m not able to spend a frozen Saturday in Bethesda, Maryland writing. Maybe the Confederates would have won the American Civil War and I would’ve had to apply for the Federal Government for permission to write anything at all. Because the Confederates would have probably have rewritten the Constitution or thrown it out like a piece of trash in order to keep their regime in power.
Veterans Day is that day to celebrate those great Americans who fight for our freedom and to give those Americans who aren’t qualified or simply don’t have the balls to serve, perhaps eat too much fast food to get through boot camp, the opportunity to celebrate the people who have given us the freedom that Americans cherish the most. The right to be Americans, the right to be individuals. The right to eat ourselves to death, or live long prosperous, intelligent, healthy, but interesting and exciting lives.
So that is my week for This Week. Perhaps you can view it as one tweet, but without about thousand characters or so in it. Imagine if Donald Trump had to write his comments and thoughts out in an article, instead of doing it in 10-20 tweets at around 8AM in the morning. Would his comments each day look more intelligent and thoughtful after seeing his thoughts written down on computer. Well, we’ll probably never know, but perhaps something to think about.
