"Good news"


          

What passes for good news these days is when the repugs and the idiot president fail to do something that screws up our country further. We have natural disasters galore with all the hurricanes and now that wildfire in Ca. plus shootings every day somewhere. Close to home a college student vacationing in Fla and Va Tech football players brother were shot and killed, one by police and the other is still a mystery.

The con man should do as little as possible. That would suit me. The troglodytes that voted for him may never figure that out. Also good news. Now we need to pray for Ruth Bader Ginsberg for the next three years.

And also pray that there is no need for war or there is no bird flu or the Yellowstone Caldera remains dormant or etc, etc,...

I've been dealing with car brakes and a bad water heater the past week and am just seeing the executive order he signed on Thursday.

Well shit. He'd had such a good track record up to now; Trump would talk a lot, piss people off but he would never get much of anything done. Now he went and did this.

The mid terms ought to be fun after this.

When the people behind trump set up shop in the WH there has to one evil group of people who have been looking for ways to kill the ACA. When the repug congress failed, they are now using executive orders. They want to turn back the clock, but just how far?

I think the executive order is Trump pissed off. He really hates being in the White House. He is going about the right way to get out of the White House.

Maybe even lose the republican Senate and House along the way.

This step is going to cost some of my right wing friends, dearly, in financial terms. Most have a child or spouse with a "pre-existing".. It's going to be interesting.

With eyes wide open, Mike Pence eagerly auditioned for the role as Donald Trump's poodle. Now comfortably leashed, he deserves the degradations that he seems too sycophantic to recognize as such. He did Trump's adolescent bidding with last Sunday's preplanned virtue pageant of scripted indignation - his flight from the predictable sight of players kneeling during the national anthem at a football game. No unblinkered observer can still cling to the hope that Pence has the inclination, never mind the capacity, to restrain, never mind educate, the man who elevated him to his current glory. Pence is a reminder that no one can have sustained transactions with Trump without becoming too soiled for subsequent scrubbing.

A man who interviewed for the position Pence captured, Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), is making amends for saying supportive things about Trump. In 2016, for example, he said he was "repulsed" by people trying to transform the Republican National Convention from a merely ratifying body into a deliberative body for the purpose of preventing what has come to pass. Until recently, Corker, an admirable man and talented legislator, has been, like many other people, prevented by his normality from fathoming Trump's abnormality. Now Corker says what could have been said two years ago about Trump's unfitness.

The axiom that "Hell is truth seen too late" is mistaken; damnation deservedly comes to those who tardily speak truth that has long been patent. Perhaps there shall be a bedraggled parade of repentant Republicans resembling those supine American communists who, after Stalin imposed totalitarianism, spawned the gulag, engineered the Ukraine famine, launched the Great Terror and orchestrated the show trials, were theatrically disillusioned by his collaboration with Hitler: You, sir, have gone too far.

Trump's energy, unleavened by intellect and untethered to principle, serves only his sovereign instinct to pander to those who adore him as much as he does. Unshakably smitten, they are impervious to the Everest of evidence that he disdains them as a basket of gullibles. He understands that his unremitting coarseness satisfies their unpolitical agenda of smashing crockery, even though his self-indulgent floundering precludes fulfillment of the promises he flippantly made to assuage their sense of being disdained. He gives his gullibles not governance by tantrum, but tantrum as governance.

With Trump turning and turning in a widening gyre, his crusade to make America great again is increasingly dominated by people who explicitly repudiate America's premises. The faux nationalists of the "alt-right" and their fellow travelers such as Stephen K. Bannon, although fixated on protecting the United States from imported goods, have imported the blood-and-soil ethno-tribalism that stains the continental European right. In "Answering the Alt-Right" in National Affairs quarterly, Ramon Lopez, a University of Chicago PhD candidate in political philosophy, demonstrates how Trump's election has brought back to the public stage ideas that a post-Lincoln America had slowly but determinedly expunged. They were rejected because they are incompatible with an open society.

I saw another George Will type fellow Robert Kagan's article in the Wash Post suggesting that republicans ought to vote for moderate democrats.
