Normally the subject of my Sunday article is the biggest political story of the week just passed. Internationally anyway, the biggest story of this week, although not unexpected, broke this Sunday. Recep Erdogan was reelected to a five year term as President of Turkey. I doubt most Americans even noticed but the international implications could be huge.
I’ll start out on all personal notes. As you can see, I’m back. My wife’s surgery was a success and the resulting somewhat ancillary (my degree is not in medicine!) tests came back negative which is huge! I probably took an extra day or two off, but I must admit having Easter and Dyngus Day off was nice. My Rays are 10-0 as I pen this so all is good on the personal front. Thank you to those who reached out to me!
Now on to politics, or at least a partial attempt to catch up. I have a feeling this will be a “two part – two-day effort”.
Today is Valentines Day, a day to celebrate love. Nobody loves uncertainly and today I want to get into three cases of it.
Today’s article is basically a continuation of yesterday’s. I’ll try to cover many of the other things that happened last week that I think stink. The culprits, with one exception, are Republicans and I’ll conclude with a Democrat caught in a situation that stinks.
The other day I ran into a friend and frequent reader. We hadn’t seen each other in about a year and did a bit of catching up. I confided in him that I was surprised I was still writing about Trump as much as I am. I said, “He just won’t go away.” (The quote might be a bit inaccurate – missing an adjective or two better left out of this article.) Trump is but the American manifestation of the disease which is alive, well and global. Here are a few tidbits in support of my argument.
