Sometimes you just can’t win for losing!
Yesterday, one of those days.
Kavanaugh got the vote and was sworn in. Syracuse lost to Pitt.
The Kavanaugh fight is over. Time will tell who was correct.
Syracuse’s loss depressing. Syracuse started the season 4-0. Then lost to #4 Clemson last week by 3 points. This week Pitt. Should have been an easy win. Was not. Pitt won in overtime 44-37. Syracuse played poorly.
With Syracuse also, time will tell. Six games remaining.
An observation. Roe v. Wade will not survive Kavanaugh. It will be overturned.
Last night spent at Blue Macaw. A clubby atmosphere. Friendly. Love Montana the bartender. Chatted with Joe, Doug, Donna and Terri.
Doug is of Italian extraction, also. His Dad a chef of sorts. Doug learned early on how to cook. We spent much time discussing Christmas Eve’s seven fishes, their preparation, etc.
There is more news than Kavanaugh and Trump. However, their news will continue to be overwhelming. To the result that what is happening otherwise does not come to our attention.
For example, the U.S. Marines coming to the rescue last week in Washington, D.C.
A senior citizen facility was on fire. More than a hundred residents. Two hundred yards away was a small Marine outpost. The Marines saw smoke and rushed over.
Someone yelled there are people inside. The Marines acted as you would expect Marines to act. They rushed in and saved lives.
Newsworthy? You bet. Front page any other time. Not this past week. Sad.
Some things just plain un-American. Trump leading the pact in taking such actions. He forgets we are a republic and not a dictatorship. Authoritarianism has no place in our society.
Trump is down on Facebook. For some time. He is unhappy that Facebook carries comments adverse to Trump. Too bad. That’s the way it is in a republic. People have the right to express themselves about their government.
What have been described as “anti-activists” are a thorn in Trump’s side. Makes him unhappy. Trump had demanded information as to who they were with all pertinent details. Facebook refused. It is now claimed the Trump administration has secured search warrants to enable them to be discovered.
Involved are some 6,000 individuals who “liked” an anti-activist Trump Facebook page.
Wrong! Chilling! The U.S. is not Russia, China, or North Korea.
ACLU attorney Scott Michelman said, “What is particularly chilling about these warrants is that anti-administration political activists are going to have their political associations scrutinized by the very administration they are protesting.”
Welcome to the United States of 2018!
I am 83 years old. Retired from the practice of law 12 years ago. It was time. Should have done it years earlier.
Politicians seem to overstay their time in office. Two examples are Republican Senators Chuck Grassley and Orrin Hatch. Grassley 85, has been in the Senate 38 years. Hatch 84, has been in the Senate 41 years.
Both too old. Should have packed up and left town years ago. Both not today in thinking. Their minds back to a time where women were looked down upon. They do not understand today’s world in many respects.
Grassley is Chairman of the Judiciary Committee. He was asked this past week why there were not more women on the Committee. He suggested too much work. They might not be able to handle it. An example of the keep ’em pregnant and in the kitchen mentality.
Hatch back in another time when he opens his mouth.
Time for new faces in Washington.
Terri sings 10-12 this morning at Hard Rock Cafe. I am going to enjoy brunch and Terri at the same time.
Enjoy your Sunday!
