7/23 Sunday musings

Wild Fires are ablaze across the USA. It seems to get worse every day.

Our wacked out president tweeted he can pardon anyone he wants, including himself. But his lawyer Jay boy says Trump isn’t even thinking about pardons because he didn’t do anything wrong.

Okay.

If that sounds confusing, welcome to the state of affairs in America. It’s the rise of fake news and the decline of truth. Facts become debatable with Trump and his minions.

Trump’s bromance with Putin is slowly revealing what we all already knew; he loves Putin (that authoritarian thing is sexy) and he’s complicit in obstruction of justice in the Russian probe of his campaign last year. Think James Comey.

I’m getting real excited by the basketball team Magic Johnson is putting together for the Lakers. I’d like to see their #2 draft choice, Alonzo Ball, make Rookie of the Year. Other acquisitions make me think this Laker team will make the playoffs for the first time in three years! (it’s been that long!) FYI: I’ve been a Laker fan since 1964.

What is the future of health care in America? The Republicans can’t even agree among themselves to repeal and replace Obamacare – their mantra for the last 7 years. Hopefully for all Americans, a bi-partisan bill will be passed and everyone will win. This uncertainty is scary.

As It Stands, thank you for stopping bye, and I sure hope you return. Your comments are always welcome.
