TROUBLE WITH WORDPRESS and our Inadequate President.

Today it doesn’t want to load and without it, no blog. Just now it’s going through.

No one could have predicted that this nation would be going thru an epidemic, an economic crisis and race riots all at once. The one thing we could have predicted is that Donald Trump would not have an adequate response. Donald Trump will go down in history as The Inadequate President. And we knew that when we elected him.

So it comes as no surprise that he s a buffoon when it comes to foreign relations. He doesn’t now how to behave with other heads of State, and so he is a constant embarrassment. At 73, he apparently does not have the ability to learn new skills or facts, which renders him a danger. He has surrounded himself with sycophants who will never disagree with him, because he’s fired everyone else, leaving only second-raters like Stephen Miller and Mike Pompeo to carry on. In the middle of a pandemic, he withdraws our nation from the World Health Organization like a peevish child who picks up his marbles and runs home crying. There is only one world and ONE World Health Organization and we need a seat at that table. He pulled us out of the Paris accords. What he cannot control he withdraws from because he never learned to play nice with the other kids. This overgrown baby is your President.

I used to think I understood politics, but I never understood how much damage one person can do in a democracy. Hopefully, we will never have another Trump to endure, God help us.

SHORT RIBS AND RANDOM THOUGHTS, May 24,2020

From CNN: One new way to cover a familiar story is with a list. On Thursday CNN’s Marshall Cohen made this very straight-forward list of ten things President Trump did to flood the zone this week. I told him I wanted to share it with all of you. This is definitely NOT a top ten list… it’s more like a bottom ten list…  
 
— Accused China of meddling in the 2020 election to help Biden, without any proof    — Lied about voter fraud as a pretext to accuse Democrats of stealing the election    — Threatened to withhold funds from states if they expand access to vote-by-mail    — Accused officials in Michigan and Nevada of breaking the law, without any proof    — Complained that Fox News isn’t doing enough to help him win re-election  
 — Openly violated guidelines from public health agencies about wearing masks  
 — Retweeted unscientific information about hydroxychloroquine as treatment    
— Accused Obama of orchestrating a “deep state” conspiracy, without any proof  
 — Retweeted criticism of Chris Wray, the FBI director that he appointed in 2017  
 — Endorsed false and debunked allegations of misconduct by the Roger Stone jury     Thank you, Marshall, for the list. I appreciated the simplicity and starkness…
And I can’t mess with perfection.

Hope you’re planning to have a safe and quiet Memorial Day, Remember no mater how much we bitch and complain about OUR lot there is always someone who has it worse. Like the entire population of Hong Kong.

This is going to be a short entry., but here something useful. A countdown to the election. Find it HERE.

Enjoy your weekend.
