A few years back, I said that there wasn’t much difference between the KKK and the Republican Party. I took some flack about that in the comments from the conservative who used to appear here. Back then, it was just my sensitivity to the various dog whistles that were being used. These days? It’s now open. The only difference is that they’re not wearing hoods and burning crosses.
Nancy Pelosi is going to be the Speaker of the House. The ”insurrection” will end up being much ado about nothing. Good for the conservative media, but that’s about it. I’m realistic. There is no other member of the House that does what she does, and did in her previous term as Speaker. She could round up 218 votes; and if they weren’t there, she’d work until she had a bill that would get them. You never saw the number of defeats that Boehner and Ryan had during their times. Down the line, I’d hope that when she decides to step aside, we have candidates like her to take over. Anyone who is ambitious should be taking master classes from her.
I don’t know who the Democratic Party’s nominee for President will be in 2020. I’m not even really paying attention at the moment to any of the various names the media is floating. I’m sure we’ll see some announcements being made next year, and I’m sure one of them will be the nominee. The one thing I am sure of? That the nominee won’t be named Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton.
I think the media should stop paying attention to the various farmers and ranchers who are in deep trouble because of the trade war Trump has started with China. In virtually every interview, you learn that they voted for Trump and still support him. So, they’re getting exactly what they voted for. So my heart isn’t bleeding, and I’m tired of their whining.
