Random thoughts Friday, Volume XXX

  • Let’s just pretend that Donald Trump’s Big Lie is inexplicably true.  That would mean Trump, as president, allowed the biggest successful attack on our Democracy in the history of our nation without so much as the smallest effort to stop it.  And the GOP wants him back in office… why?
  • You can’t be both pro-police and pro-Trump.  You can’t be both pro-Constitution and pro-Trump.  You can’t be both pro-reality and pro-Trump.  After this week, Trump supporters must remove those terms from their lexicon.
  • Simone Biles was a hero for what she did on the gymnastics mat.  Now she’s a hero for not being on the gymnastics mat.  She’s a fantastic example for young athletes to follow on how to succeed and take care of yourself.  
  • I’m sure Kevin McCarthy has been called a moron before, but he probably has mixed feelings because it wasn’t his mother this time.
  • Democrats need to have televised roundtables locally with hospital staffers–doctors, nurses, chaplains, administrators and local public health experts–who can illustrate what’s happening in ICUs due to the coronavirus case spike.  If Red Hats don’t believe Fauci, Biden, Wilenski and other federal authorities, maybe they’ll listen to a doctor describe what it’s like to intubate a COVID patient.
  • Tens of millions of Americans who refuse to get the vaccine because it’s “experimental” would gladly rely on experimental treatments if they end up in a hospital with coronavirus.  
  • The last time my inbox was empty was when I first signed up for AOL in the mid-1990s.  
  • Faux News can’t figure out if they’re supposed to continue obstructionist propaganda against opposing everything that the Democrats support–like vaccines–or if they should actually help people stay healthy.  
  • The artwork in MAD Magazine is underrated, as were its oft-overlooked margin illustrations.  I’d always check the borders before I turned to the next page.   
  • The photography on baseball cards is basically yearbook-quality pics mounted on cardboard, except unlike a yearbook, they’ll increase in value.
  • The legal firm of Greene, Gaetz, Gohmert and Gosar tried two obnoxious performance art pieces this week–a press conference to deflect attention from the January 6th hearings and a trip to a prison to check on insurrections–to demonstrate that they have no interest in actually governing.  
  • My favorite comfort foods changed as I got older.  When I was younger, they were meatloaf with mashed potatoes, spaghetti with meat sauce, and pizza.  Now, after I’ve experienced different cuisines from around the world, I’d say Vietnamese pho, sushi, a muffaletta, and “oven fried” fish top the list.  
  • Greg Abbott’s executive order allowing state troopers to pull over any migrant who looks like they may be carrying coronavirus is evidence that systemic racism is not dead in the US, as Republicans claim.  
  • And in honor of our 30th “Random Thoughts,” here’s some Xander Cage:
