i guess we’re just giving up now?


Yep, f*cking insane!! … “The number of cases AND the number of positive Covid-19 tests are uniformly increasing. And the Trump administration officials who SET the guidelines are cheering on the folks who are ignoring them.”

gregfallis.com

Did I get this wrong? I mean, it was only a month ago. I recognize that a month in TrumpTime is like a year in normal time, but still. Only a month ago Comrade Trump’s own coronavirus task force cobbled together a vague set of guidelines that individual states should meet before the country would be allowed to ‘open up again’ (whatever the hell that means).

Bringing out the dead.

Here are the state/regional gating criteria Trump said should be satisfied BEFORE starting the first phase of the comb-over comeback:

A downward trajectory of documented cases within a 14-day period.
OR
A downward trajectory of positive tests as a percent of total tests within a 14-day period (flat or increasing volume of tests).

And remember, that’s not even Phase One. That was supposed to be the criteria before entering Phase One. When did we decide to scrap that?

I mean…

Worse Than Lincoln


This is the best way to look at it … “It’s appropriate that Trump held his most recent interview with Fox News at the feet of the Lincoln Memorial. Sitting at Lincoln’s feet, Trump was tiny to the giant that is Abraham Lincoln. Just like he was to the memorial, Trump’s presidency is puny, frail, and weak compared to the enormity that was Abraham Lincoln’s. When compared to Lincoln, Trump is microscopic.”

Nearly every historian agrees Abraham Lincoln is our greatest president. And while there are other presidents who were great…and tragic (like Franklin Pierce losing his son between the election and inauguration and his other two children also died young, his wife suffered from depression, and he became an alcoholic), none were more tragic than Abraham Lincoln.

It’s interesting to bring up Pierce because he helped set the stage for the Civil War, which was Lincoln’s greatest challenge and helped contribute to the tragedy that was Lincoln. During the war, Pierce spent his time criticizing Lincoln (which I’m sure we’ll see Trump do for the presidents who follow him). Holding the nation together and winning an American insurrection makes Abraham Lincoln our greatest president. Lincoln was presented the greatest challenge to our nation and he answered the call with brilliance…all while malice was directed at him.

Lincoln once declined an opportunity…

The Smallness of Donald Trump


Right on target … PERFECT!! … “Whining on national television at a Fox Town Hall held at the Lincoln Memorial, Trump complained ad nauseum just how poorly he is treated. Worse he claims with a straight face, than Lincoln himself which only showed just how deficient this man is. A know-nothing narcissistic posing as a president chooses to sit at the feet of one of our county’s greatest. How utterly small is this president.”

Envisioning The American Dream

 

Donald Trump Town hall Lincoln Memorial

In the shadow of the majestic Lincoln Memorial, the smallness and pettiness of this current president were brought into sharp relief.

Whining on national television at a Fox Town Hall held at the Lincoln Memorial, Donald Trump complained ad nauseum just how poorly he is treated. Worse he claims with a straight face, than Lincoln himself which only showed just how deficient this man is. A know-nothing narcissistic posing as a president chooses to sit at the feet of one of our county’s greatest.

How utterly small is this president.

How unfit he is for this moment in history. How diminutive he is, how stunted,  unable to rise to this crisis in our history. This parody of a president, a grandiose pseudo billionaire totally and completely morally bankrupt.

How history will remember him- not for his unfair treatment by the media but for his inadequacies. His failures and lack…

PONCE ES PONCE

“La Ciudad Señorial”

All of the places depicted in the photos included are very familiar to me. I was born in Puerto Rico, in the San Juan (metro) area. In 1968, I graduated from high school and went to college.

I was accepted and attended the Catholic University of Puerto Rico located in Ponce. This was a pivotal time in my educational, personal and eventually professional career. Needless to say, Ponce holds a very special place in my heart.

I met my better-half at this University. I became a full adult in Ponce. My future was mapped here.

In many ways, Ponce is my hometown!!

My heart sank early Saturday morning when I heard the news.

Puerto Rico has been rocked many many natural disaster in the last two years: Hurricane María, Trump, persistent earthquakes!

It’s time to stop, PLEASE!!

THE LINCOLN PROJECT

I’ve posted several of the political ads that this group has produced and aired on TV time. I would like to share with you who they are, what they are doing and who they came to be.

It seems that when they ‘launched‘ their project, they began with the self-explanatory video that I share below.

This morning, the ‘Toddler-in-Chief‘ rage-tweeted at them related to the new ad: “Mourning in America“, hence, more light is upon them now,

The rest is, and will be, history!

~WE ARE REPUBLICANS, AND WE WANT TRUMP DEFEATED~

The president and his enablers have replaced conservatism with an empty faith led by a bogus prophet.

George T. Conway III, Steve Schmidt, John Weaver and Rick Wilson.

The authors have worked for or supported numerous Republican campaigns and administrations. This article was originally published in The New York Times.

Patriotism and the survival of our nation in the face of the crimes, corruption and corrosive nature of Donald Trump are a higher calling than mere politics. As Americans, we must stem the damage he and his followers are doing to the rule of law, the Constitution and the American character.

That’s why we are announcing the Lincoln Project, an effort to highlight our country’s story and values, and its people’s sacrifices and obligations. This effort transcends partisanship and is dedicated to nothing less than preservation of the principles that so many have fought for, on battlefields far from home and within their own communities.

Running. With Mother Goose.


“I see you!” … Megan Craig who provides illumination, the light seeping in, ever so slowly: “How hard it is to see someone else’s inner light – the thing that keeps them illuminated in dark times – especially when we are fixated on our own lives. We pass one another, intent on ourselves and our own problems, never imagining the burning fire under the dark coat.”

Live & Learn

6:10 a.m. 42° F. Nippy for May.

It’s been 6 days in a row, running that is.  Why? More on this another day, this surge of something.

There she is. Mother Goose. Same spot. Each morning, every morning. Sitting between the highway, the guard rail, and the retaining wall. Sick. She has to be sick. Does she sit here all day? 

She triggered a mini waterfall of the yesterday’s events.

3 p.m. conference call. Delicate personnel situation. I’m quiet, he explains. “Listen, I’m not vindictive, that’s not who I am. There was nothing malicious in….”  He’s a midwesterner, solemn, humble, truthful.  We wrap up the conversation. I thank the small group for providing me the background.  I close: “I know vindictive, and you ain’t vindictive. I see vindictive each morning in the mirror.” They laugh. I know, they know.

6:10 a.m. Yesterday’s morning run. 0.6 miles in. A…
