A Few For The Road

I plan on taking a few days off from my version of live blogging so this is a perfect opportunity to get some last points in.

What Is Trump Setting Up For?

Let’s look at America as we end the month of June of a presidential year with the incumbent president running for reelection. We are in a depression with unemployment at a rate we haven’t seen in decades. We are suffering from a pandemic the likes of which we haven’t seen in a century and are turning in the worst performance by far of any other advanced industrialized western nation due to lack of federal leadership.

Some have already served their time or are currently serving time; several are awaiting sentencing and still more are currently under indictment. I’m certain I missed some candidates and there are still more who I am simply not aware of at this writing. The number is also much higher than 47 but to fit my scenario only American males could reasonably be counted. Continue reading The Trump Infrastructure Program
