Two articles came to my attention in the past few days. Neither one by themself warranted an entire article. While on the surface they appear quite different; they are actually similar in that they are dangerous. One will look like the outline of a Michael Crichton novel, the other the outline of a political thriller. Both are very, very real and the scary part is that they are flying mostly under the radar.
Lots to get to so let’s get going.
I’m going to ramble a bit today. Independence Day has always been my favorite holiday. I think that may go back to growing up in Western New York where it was the holiday where I had the best chance of having baseball weather. Considerably later in life my wife and I actually had our first date on a July 4th. Today I’ll stick to politics with a bit of baseball thrown in at the conclusion.
Today is the day most Court watchers expect the Court to announce its final decisions of this term. With this Court you can never tell but I’m willing to bet the justices want to beat the holiday rush out of town. As part of the waiting game, I want to offer my thoughts on why this Court is held in such low regard by most Americans and then end with another unrelated why.
It started on Thursday morning; or at least that’s when I detected it. The right wing op-ed machine coalesced behind Donald Trump with the same sorry argument.
