Independence Day and our country is in the process of being wrecked by a cretin who has no wisdom, no knowledge and no shame. Happy Fourth!
Hurricane season began June 1- and continues to the end of November. But our lazy President has yet to name anyone to lead FEMA. Do lives have to be lost before this jackass gets serious about his responsibilities??? Apparently.
The Housing Shortage- A month or so ago the AEDC sponsored a forum on our perpetual housing shortage. I didn’t cover it in the blog because Gregg Foster and others did so very well. I just found out that a young relative in the Bay Area has just been accepted for Section 8 housing after ELEVEN YEARS on the list. The plight of the poor and disabled in the Bay Area economy- heck, ANY high cost area- is real and under-reported.
Is Jeff Sessions the LEAST impressive person in the Federal Government? There are counter clerks at Six Rivers Forest who show more wisdom and presence than he does. An Attorney General should have a memory; that should be a basic qualification. Every response in his recent testimony was “I don’t recall”. He looks like Howdy Doody and he sounds like Gomer Pyle. And he wants to restore the War on Weed. What a winner.
Venus Williams will likely pay a pretty penny for her car accident in Florida but the whole incident will have a good effect if it reminds people that you don’t have to be driving FAST to have a fatal accident.
Trump’s horoscope- is available at AstroDienst. I will only make some brief observations. The first is that a “normal ” or “balanced” scope is one in which the planets are spread around the wheel, not bunched up in one place. Trump’s are bunched up in the left half of the ‘scope, which indicates a limited point of view, or limitations in his personality. He also has Mars conjunct his ascendant which indicates belligerence. And his moon is opposite his Sun/Uranus conjunction indicating major conflicts between his inner and outer personas. His four planets in Cancer indicate a home-loving person with domestic proclivities. Let’s see how well he does on his trip later this week.
