Ack!..."Thud"

I've been spectacularly ill off and on since Thursday afternoon (why I haven't streamed). Early this morning, I ran to the ER. It turns out not to be the flu, COVID or KNOXitis, but a bacterial kidney infection. The local pharmacies are out of the prescribed antibiotics due to the current shortages, but they've ordered some & in any event I've been on IVs for hours,  so I feel a lot better.


Still weak though.

I'm Back

My Mom, my Dad, and, my Uncle have had me on edge for a few weeks as all have had medical scares, been to the hospital and all three have had surgeries of varying levels of seriousness. But it was my wacky Aunt Virginia, who, as is her wont, completely surprised everybody by doing something utterly unexpected. 


The nieces and nephews have mostly recovered from the shock and the wake was a fairly upbeat affair, befitting Aunt Ginny's exuberant nature.

However, this past week has been a reminder that tragedy can come at the most unexpected times and it is best to treasure the time we have here, for that time is finite.

Very Cursory Thoughts by a Layman on the New York Situation

My opinion of Donald Trump is summed up here. I think he's crass, ethically fraught, and unlikely to win. However, if one wants to beat him, one needs to make the case, to the American people. 


That ought not to be hard.

However, the Democrats have taken his 2016 success as an affront and are trying to destroy Trump via lawfare. They are attempting to keep him off the ballot in several states (an unprecedented bit of chicanery not seen since the lead up to the civil war). And in New York, they are attempting to destroy the man for the crime of existing. 

Specifically, they are fining him 355 million ( now over$400 million) Dollars for allegedly overvaluing his properties, in order to secure better interest rates for loans. While judgement has been reached, I say "alleged" because not only did the banks allegedly defrauded by this alleged overestimation actually testify ON TRUMP'S BEHALF in the matter, and denied that they had been wronged in any way, but the judge summarily declared Trump guilty. Now he is being charged interest every day he does not pay the fine, despite the fact that the ruling is being appealed. 

Some idea of how bad this is is that what Trump has been accused of is such established past practice that real estate developers, even those who dislike Trump, are fleeing the state because this seems to be such a bullshit verdict, based on politics, & in an era of cancel culture that's a real threat. 



The purpose of this is clear, bankrupt Trump, and make it impossible to win the election. This is third world level crap and it unleashes a huge Pandora's box when such a fine, so completely out of line with sentencing guidelines is leveed due to political animus. 

The results of this are likely to be quite dark.
When the sum total of the law becomes " I think he's bad! GET HIM" society does not become better. The history of my own part of the U.S. (the southeast) is illustrative of why this is, but it has rarely been articulated so eloquently as by Paul Schofield here...
