It's still 2020

Another morning. I wake up to it with a dull ache. It takes a few seconds to identify what's wrong. It's the same two things. We are in a nightmare pandemic, and our country is in the hands of bad people.

I have to remind myself to deal with these things one at a time, even though they are related. They're each enough to drive you nuts, and together they'll blow your mind.

For the moment, the political situation feels worse than the deadly virus. Last night we had angry, armed mobs marching through the streets of our nation's capital, screaming their support for the deranged dictator-wannabe occupying the White House and refusing to leave. Of course, there are people on the left who can't resist mixing it up with them, and they showed up, too. Some people on both sides flew thousands of miles to act this garbage out. Including some from the Portland area.

About 20 were arrested, it appears. Probably all lefties; the cops generally let the righties do whatever they want. Some blood was shed. At least one stabbing was reported, and there were some beatings shown on Twitter as well. 

Here in Portland, the Antifa types who didn't fly to D.C. drove over to the 'Couve to chant their anti-Trump, and anti-Biden, slogans in front of the sheriff's office downtown. I suppose there was some connection to the police killing of Kevin Peterson, Jr., but it was probably pretty attenuated. Some right wingers were on hand, too. They had a strobe light that sent one of the lefties into a seizure. There were enough police, and so few protesters, that that demonstration fizzled out early.

Okay then, enough of that ache. We'll get on to the other one after breakfast. I hear we're back to hoarding toilet paper. What a country.

But what doesn't kill us makes us stronger. We've been through a hellish eight months. If we can get through eight more, we''ll likely be in a better place. 

As John Lennon once interjected, "It can't get no worse."


  1. Jack, Do what I do sometimes. Just look at some of the latest pictures of Earth taken from Mars. We're just one little speck with a second speck in some of them that is the Moon. The vastness of space makes everything seem so inconsequential. I find that very reassuring.

  2. Jack, it’s funny that you mention the Trumpinistas and Covid 19 almost in the same breath. A couple of weeks ago I was trolling on some Trumpinista Facebook pages (like Newsmax) and was hardly surprised at what I read. Much of it was along the following lines - Well you all know that the "so called" Corona Virus was thought up by the New World Order working in tandem with "The Rothchilds" and DEEP STATE Democrats, along with George Soros and Black Lives Matter and is actually a plot by "the liberals" to make us economic slaves to the New World Order, and then to get our guns. The Corona Virus isn't any worse than the flu, and President Trump isn't falling for all this "leftist" babble, Guess who imports all these masks that they are tryin' to git you to buy, yep, Obama! Two weeks? OUR PRESIDENT, DONALD J. TRUMP will be better in TWO DAYS with a few pulls of that Hydroxychloroquine (HI-DROX-Y-CLOR-OH-QUINE - rhymes with WINE), and a good nights' sleep with his good Christian wife Melania! IF OUR PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SICK it's likely all the fluoride that the Commies have been puttin' in our water for years! And when he is "up to snuff" again he will kick that heck out of the Bideneers - those baby-killing satanists who would stand in the way of Making America Great Again - and later they would turn the world into some welfare state ruled by people "whose love dare not speak its name!" Let's put THEM BACK into the closet along with the other liberals where we can keep a close eye on them and far away from our children. My wife? "Yes," my dog? "maybe," "my gun? "never!" AND I MEAN NEVER! "You'll have to pry my gun from my cold, dead hands!" And my wife's second cousin's hairdresser knows some of those illegals who did vote in the last election for HiIlary Clinton and then danced the Cucaracha on OUR American flag. Well the Dems want to increase our taxes to mollycoddle those welfare queens and pay 'em money to have more babies! Now many of us think of President Trump as a "man's man," but our womenfolk think of him as a "ladies' man, a self-made Christian man as honest as the day is long. Old enough to be wise but in great shape (playin' golf near every day) and courageous in every way. Remember folks, he doesn't need your pity, just your vote!
